One of my favorite science fiction writers, Philip Jose Farmer, died on Feb. 25. He was never as famous are other vintage SF writers such as Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein or Arthur C. Clarke, but he had a devoted following.
The Nuesse-gate hearings begin later this month, and we'll hit this story as hard as ever. One of the stars on the city's long list of witnesses is none other than the old wise man himself, Kevin Baxter.
Construction of the Erie MetroParks Dog Park at Osborn Park has begun. The park is set to open this fall, but the Friends of Erie MetroParks Dog Park Committee are hounding the public to fix a remaining problem.
The folks at Lake Erie Shores and Islands have announced that Kelleys Island will be featured on TV tonight, on the National Geographic Channel’s “Naked Science.” The program explores “one of the world’s greatest geological mysteries.”
It was another tough week. I was out of town Sunday (March 29) through late Tuesday (March 31) fishing in Northern Michigan for steelhead. I had a great trip and caught fish. I brought home four 8-10 pounders.
This has proven to be my most difficult month. I have only lost a couple of pounds. We haven’t done an inch measurement because Trevor Tieche, my personal trainer, has been out of town and I have had to work out on my own.
This has been a difficult past week for me because of the many things happening. My daughter-in-law gave birth to our third grandchild on March 20 at 5:44 a.m. so I have been back and forth to Columbus twice in the past five days.
The week of March 8 was a great workout week and only a so-so diet week. The workouts with Trevor were some of my best since we began. I completed three workouts, each about 90 minutes. I am beginning to feel a little quicker in my agility drills and much stronger with the weights.
Jan. 26: Today was kind of a blah day. Eating went OK, but didn't get to eat dinner until almost 10 p.m., so it was very long between my late afternoon snack and dinner. Got very hungry and gave into some bread with my meat and rice. I am hoping for a good report at the end of the week.
Jan. 19: Back to the grind today. Did well on the diet with shakes, bar, fruit and balanced dinner. Four swim meets this week so it will be tough to get the workouts in, but we are scheduled for Wednesday and Friday night.
