Ketogenic Dieting

Posted by Rob on 30th November 2014 in Weight Loss |

So, this is the new thing. I tried this once before, in the form of the famous Atkins diet.  You know, the one that people say killed him, except it didn’t?  Righto, that’s the chap.  It’s one of the stricter and weirder diets out there, though there’s science suggesting lately that ketones are good for […]


Brain Bite #5

Posted by Rob on 29th November 2014 in Brain Bites |

Well, let us begin with another bit of a flashback… Frankie Goes To Hollywood: Relax This song came out when I was about six or seven years old, but it had a brief resurgence when I was a teenager, and I loved it. Ignoring the whole controversy element of the song — people say it’s […]

Writers of the Future

Posted by Rob on 27th November 2014 in Writing |

Phew! What a week. If I was to bet on what amateur writers envy most about the lives of pro writers, it’d be simply this — that they don’t end up getting sidetracked by their work or job. I work freelance, which means that my job can, at times, grow to consume almost all of […]

It’s one thing to plan for what you’ll do when the weather turns cold, Halloween sneaks in, and Thanksgiving is on the horizon — but it’s quite another to actually go on and do it. Although I’m quite good at keeping myself in check, the change of the seasons does trigger the desire for foods.  The cold […]
