The countdown is on. My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. Typing Tuesday means that it is getting closer. This is one time that I am glad that the Federal government stepped in and declared that Thanksgiving would be every 4th Thursday of November. In fact, I’d be happy with every 3rd and 4th, but I digress.
As you can see, this is my excuse for a blog. I basically am going to be posting pictures and rambling for the rest of the blog week. We did just finish the November digital newsletter. It has plenty of randomness too. If you did not receive it in your in box and you want to (shameless plug), then click HERE to get it sent to you.
Well, I promised a Thanksgiving picture and they crack me up…
Personal responsiblity is an every day discussion in the injury law world. Let me sidestep all that to describe a book that I am reading on personal responsibility… at the dinner table!
The End of Overeating: Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite is a long title for the short thought of eating less. For our monthly digital newsletter (yes, a shameless plug) the social media staff asks me to list a book for that I am currently reading.
If you grabbed my kindle right now, you would see that I have several books in “mid-book”. Usually, I only have one fiction and the rest are study, motiviation or leadership books.
Personal responsibility on the highways; Personal responsibility on the food intake.
Here is a teaser from the book. I turn to a couple chapter titles: “Sugar, Fat, and Salt Make Us Eat More Sugar, Fat and Salt”. Now that makes sense. Another chapter is titled “Pushing Up Our Settling Points”. That chapter also discusses Robert De Niro’s method for gaining and losing weight for a movie role.
Finally, this book discusses one study that required a group to keep track of weekly calories. Invariably, people underestimate calorie intake by roughly 400 calories per day. According to the book, that’s why people don’t lose weight.
See, you come to a legal blog for some legal stuff… you arrive to find a weight loss book recommendation. Like Yogi Berra put it best, “You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going because you might not get there”.
DID YOU KNOW that Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia is the fear of long words? Yep, that knowledge is about as usual as knowing that Cleveland spelled backwards is “DNA level C”.
And for pic o’ day I went with some food:
I am guessing that you have little time right now to read one of my long blogs. So, here is a shorty.In case you are shopping or just taking care of last minute details, I thought I would just give a shameless plug for our upcoming E-blast. If you don’t receive it, I hope that you will comment on “Why Joel”, and I will get it to you. It has bits and pieces of stuff.
Yes, this shopping dog would surely grab my attention at the store.
For pic o’ day, I again reached back for one of last year’s that made me smile. It makes me smile again.
