MY DAY STARTS AT ABOUT 12 OR 1 AM IN THE MORNING. I POST MY DAILY BLOG AND BREW MY FAVORITE TASTING COFFEE OR ABOUT 3 CUPS AND PUT IN HONEY AND MILK FOR MY WIFE’S COFFEE AND MAKE MINE WITH MILK.

I GO TO GOCOMICS.COM AND GO THROUGH ABOUT 10 OF MY FAVORITE ONES AND GET A FEW GOOD LAUGHS AND SAVE THE BEST ONES FOR SHOWING THEM TO MY GRANDCHILDREN WHEN THEY GET OLD ENOUGH TO READ.

I GO TO THE HUFFINGTON POST AND DAILYKENN.COM TO SCAN FOR ARTICLES WHICH MAY INTEREST ME AND JUST READ POLITICAL AND SOCIAL HEADLINES FOR ANY NEWS WHICH I CONSIDER NEW AND INTERESTING BUT I DON’T WASTE MY TIME READING ANY OF THE ARTICLES. IF AN ARTICLE HAS A HEADING SUCH AS 10 THINGS WHICH CAN DESTROY A MARRIAGE OR 13 NEW TECHNOLOGICAL INVENTIONS I REVIEW THE ARTICLE TO SEE IF I CAN ADD MY OWN OPINIONS TO WHAT IS WRITTEN AND MAYBE TURN IT INTO AN EVERGREEN BLOG ARTICLE. POP SCI.COM IS GREAT FOR INFORMATION ON TECHNOLOGICAL BREAKTHROUGHS WHICH ARE EASY TO UNDERSTAND AND DON’T NEED MUCH SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE.

I GO TO THE FINANCIAL TIMES AND GET MY MONEY AND BUSINESS NEWS THERE. I GO TO THE BLOG SECTION OF THE ECONOMIST AND GET FACTUAL ECONOMIC NEWS THERE.

THE INFORMATION IN THE BLOGS WHICH I WRITE WILL APPEAR IN UPDATED VERSIONS OF MY BOOK COMMON SENSE WHICH WAS PUBLISHED IN DECEMBER OF 2012.

I WORK IN THE MORNING IMPROVING THE BOOKS WHICH I HAVE PUBLISHED OR SEARCHINGTHE INTERNET FOR NEW BLOG IDEAS FOR EVERGREEN ARTICLES.

TO AVOID COMPUTER BURNOUT I TAKE CIGARETTE PUFFING BREAKS ABOUT EVERY HALF HOUR BUT DON’T INHALE THE SMOKE. IT IS A GREAT 5 OR 10 MINUTE RELAXATION TIME WHEN I CAN THINK ABOUT WHAT I AM WRITING OR PLAN AHEAD FOR WHAT I MAY WANT TO DO.

SOMETIMES WHEN I FEEL LIKE IT I GO FOR 20 MINUTE FAST OR MEDIUM FAST WALKS OUTDOORS AND SOMETIMES DO SOME DEEP KNEE BENDS TO KEEP MY LEG JOINT MUSCLES IN GOOD SHAPE.

AFTER 6 AM AT ANY TIME WHEN I FEEL LIKE A PLEASURABLE DURATION I WATCH THE COLBERT NATION ON THE INTERNET.

ABOUT ONCE A DAY I VIEW ALL THE HUMANS WHO HAVE LIKED MY BLOG OR HAVE AGREED TO BECOME FOLLOWERS. FROM THEM I OFTEN GET GREAT WILDLIFE PICTURES AND NEW IDEAS TO FOLLOW UP FOR MY OWN FUTURE EVERGREEN BLOGS.

I USE GOOGLE AND BING AND INFO.COM AS SEARCH ENGINES TO FIND NEW CONCEPTS AND INFORMATION ON TOPICS I KNOW LITTLE ABOUT. I AM NEVER BORED BECAUSE I AM ALWAYS SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING NEW TO LEARN.

AT THE END OF THE MONTH I GO TO GOCOMICS.COM AND LOOK UP THE COMICS OF FIVE OF MY FAVORITE CARTOONISTS FOR A WHOLE MONTHS WORTH AND SAVE THE ONES THAT I LIKE FOR MY GRANDCHILDREN.

AT THE END OF THE MONTH I ALSO GO TO TOP40-CHARTS.COM AND SEARCH ABOUT 50 OF THE NEWEST SONGS WHICH I MIGHT WANT TO LISTEN TO. FOR ME THEY ARE USUALLY EUROPEAN ONES AND LATELY SOME HAVE BEEN FROM GERMANY AND HOLLAND AND RUSSIA AND HAVE BEEN MY FAVORITES.

WHEN I GO SHOPPING I TRY TO COMBINE TWO OR MORE STOPS ALONG THE WAY. IF I HAVE TO GO TO THE BANK I MAY ALSO STOP BY TO BUY A CARTON OF CIGARETTES OR TO BUY TWO GALLONS OF GROWTH HORMONE FREE PASTURIZED MILK AT THE PHARMACY IF I DON’T HAVE ANY RAW MILK ON HAND. I RECOMMEND YOU MAKE A LIST OF ALL THE THINGS YOU NEED OR DON’T HAVE AND THEN TRY TO SHOP FOR THEM ALL AT ONCE.

PERIODICALLY I TAKE OUT THE GARBAGE AND VACUUM THE FLOORS AND GO SHOPPING FOR FOOD WITH MY WIFE.

SINCE I DON’T SWEAT A LOT I ONLY SHOWER ABOUT ONCE EVERY THREE DAYS AND CHANGE MY CLOTHES WHEN I SHOWER. I WASH THE DISHES BY HAND ABOUT ONCE A DAY WITH VERY WARM WATER AT ABOUT 120 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT AND ONLY USE A LITTLE LIQUID SOAP WHEN MY WIFE HAS FRIED A GREASY MEAL ON THE STOVE.

DURING THE DAY WHEN I FEEL LIKE A SNACK I SHELL MY OWN VARIETY OF NUTS AND SEEDS AND A FRUIT LIKE A BANANA OR AN APPLE OR A GRAPEFRUIT OR A PAPAYA ETC. BUT I ONLY EAT ABOUT ONE THIRD OF THE FRUIT WHICH I CUT FLAT AND SAVE THE REST ON A PLATE FACE DOWN SO THE FRUIT DOESN’T SPOIL FOR FURTHER EATING.

OTHER SNACKS WHICH I EAT ARE A CAN OF OCCTOPUS OR A CAN OF BLOOD SAUSAGE FROM POLAND WHICH HAS NO ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS.

WHEN I’M THIRSTY I DRINK A LITTLE MILK OR MAKE A CUP OF TEA BY HEATING UP THE WATER IN THE CUP IN A MICROWAVE FOR ABOUT 2 AND A HALF MINUTES AND THEN LETTING THE TEA BAGS SOAK FOR ANOTHER FIVE MINUTES. IF I WANT TO DRINK THE TEA IMMEDIATELY I LEAVE SOME ROOM FOR SOME ICE CUBES WHICH COOL THE TEA DOWN TO A LITTLE OVER ROOM TEMPERATURE RATHER QUICKLY SO I CAN DRINK IT IMMEDIATELY.

I TRY TO EAT A HEARTY MEAL ABOUT ONCE A DAY BUT IF I HAVE SNACKED A LOT DURING THE DAY AND AM NOT HUNGRY I SKIP THE HEARTY EVENING MEAL COMPLETELY.

DURING THE DAY IF I GET VERY HUNGRY AND WANT TO MAKE SOMETHING SPEEDILY I PUT A LITTLE OATMEAL IN A BOWL AND ADD NUTS AND SEEDS AND MILK AND PUT IT INTO THE MICROWAVE FOR ABOUT 2 MINUTES WHICH MAKES THE MEAL READY TO EAT WHEN IT COMES OUT. YOU CAN ADD YOUR OWN DICED FRUIT AND BERRIES TO FLAVOR IT AND MAKE IT A LITTLE SWEET IF YOU WISH.

WHEN MY WIFE IS VERY HUNGRY DURING THE DAY WHICH IS RATHER RARE I MAKE SOME LOW SODIUM BACON AND EGGS WITH CHEESE AND MULTIGRAIN BREAD AND SERVE IT FOR  BOTH OF US.

WHEN I FEEL LIKE SOUP AND IT IS NOT A LEFTOVER SOUP WHICH MY WIFE SOMETIMES PREPARES AND FREEZES IN SINGLE PORTION SIZES I SOMETIMES MAKE LIPTON CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP BUT TO THE STORE PACKET I ADD TWO EGGS AND EXTRA NOODLES AND DICED CLAMS FROM A CAN AND SOME JARLSBURG CHEESE OR ANY OTHER CHEESE THAT REMAINS STRINGY AFTER BOILING FOR ABOUT THE LAST MINUTE OF A FOUR MINUTE SOUP BOIL. YOU CAN USE YOUR IMAGINATION AND ADD ANY KIND OF GOOD TASTING FOOD TO THE SOUP AND IT WILL ALL TASTE GOOD. I COOL DOWN THE SOUP WITH ICE CUBES SO THAT YOU CAN EAT IT RIGHT AWAY WITHOUT WAITING FOR THE HOT SOUP TO COOL! REMEMBER ADD A GOOD TASTING FOOD TO A GOOD TASTING FOOD AND THE RESULT IS GOOD TASTING FOOD. BELIEVE IT OR NOT!!!!!!

IF WE GO OUT TO A CRAFT SHOP I USUALLY WAIT IN THE CAR AND HAVE A 24 OUNCE BEER WHILE WAITING AND LISTENING TO THE RADIO. WE SOMETIMES COMBINE A TRIP TO TOWN WITH GOING TO THE FLEA MARKET ON WEEKENDS TO PICK UP SOME HONEY AND BEE POLLEN AND SEEDS AND LOCAL VEGETABLES. IF WE ARE HUNGRY WE SOMETIMES EAT OUT WHEN WE ARE IN THE NEIGBORHOOD OF CHIPOLTLE OR CHICK FIL A OR SBARRO’S. I SOMETIMES GO TO MCDONNALD’S FOR A SAUSAGE MCMUFFIN WITH EGGS AND HASHBROWNS IN THE MORNING WHEN PARTIALLY FILLING THE CAR GAS TANK WITH ABOUT 20 DOLLARS WORTH OF GAS.

WHEN MY WIFE DESIRES A SWEET TREAT WE GET DARK CHOCOLATE KITTCATS OR DARK CHOCOLATE FERRERO  OR I GO TO DUNKIN DONNUTS AND GET SOME FRENCH CRULLERS AND BOSTON CREMES AND JELLY DONNUTS.

SHE ALSO BUYS CHOCOLATE AT THE EUROPEAN OR RUSSIAN STORE WHERE I PICK UP SOME YOGURT DRINKS AND BLOOD SAUSAGE AND EGG NOODLES AND YOGURT CHEESE AND ESTONIAN SAUSAGE AND MADRIGAL CHEESE AND VIENNA WIENERS AND SHREDDED FERMENTED CABBAGE AND HERRING AND LATVIAN OR LITHUANIAN BREAD AND AMISH FARMER CHEESE AND AMISH KEFFIR AND SALMON AND AN OCCASIONAL EEL. WE EXPERIMENT WITH NEW FOODS AND IF WE FIND ONE THAT TASTES GREAT WE BUY IT AND EAT IT UNTIL WE ARE SATIATED AND DON’T WANT IT SO FREQUENTLY ANY MORE.
