2018 Winter March 9 Friday

51 degrees this morning, no walk

Started to walk this morning, but decided to wait one more day, I still have some congestion etc. My concern is that I don’t want to start myself coughing again

I just thought of a “treatment” I learned about several years ago, drinking hot lemon juice. I may try it as a way of closing out the coughing so I can start walking again.

I am looking forward to getting back to walking, also in getting back to listing to “Grant”, the biography of U.S. Grant.

In addition to walking, I look forward to listening to my books while I walk as much as I enjoy the walking.

Many comments about how the auto industry is structurally changing, especially due to “ride sharing” and the development of self-driving cars.

Thy point to the trend of many people currently entering driving age not getting a drivers license or cars.

I can understand the thinking, I”ve though it myself. Why spend the money buying a car when you can avoid the cost of insurance, gas, the car payments etc?

In our case, when I retire, it really doesn’t make a lot of sense to have two cars (depending on the situation at the time). Anyplace I normally want to go, I can go at a nominal cost (compared to the cost of owning and operating a car for short trips) or for longer trips I can simply rent a car.

For this we avoid the insurance, financing, repair costs etc of owning a car.

Thinking a little further, this has a negative effect on banks, insurance companies, gas stations, auto repair shops et.

Friday morning, in a lot of ways it seems like the week just started and it is already almost the weekend again!

I find it hard to believe it is already March of 2018! Daylight Savings time this weekend, meaning I will feel like I am shorted an hour. However, it is more than made up by the long evenings.

One thing I never liked about Memphis was the “short evenings”, since daylight sunset was actually one hour earlier than I was used to. I never did get used to the “short evenings”, although “Memphis Nights” in the summer were truly great.

Another day without meat, or even any real desire for meat. One thing about being temped by corn dogs, even though I love them, they really aren’t healthy or on any of my eating plans!

Haven’t been even tempted to eat meat since I stopped several weeks ago. I am sure I will be tempted and then we’ll see what happens. I may decide to resume meat when I am tempted, but not today. Maybe tomorrow, maybe next week, but not today.

That’s it for now, Friday, March 9, 2018.2018
