Out of the Blue

Happy first day of spring to all of us in the northern hemisphere, as the spring equinox already passed earlier this morning. This is the autumnal equinox below the equator, so happy fall where that is applicable. The forecast calls for highs in the 50°F+ range today and tomorrow, but it's supposed to stay below freezing on Wednesday, so we may not be completely done with winter yet. But much of last week's huge snowfall has already melted off, so we're well on our way, which makes me very happy. Won't be long before we have opening ceremonies for the soon-to-move Manstovia.

First Day of Spring, and if it keeps downpouring I'm going to have a swimming pool in my basement. In like a Lion out like a Lamb right?

Indeed. I'll take the heart health risks and my modern lifestyle, thank you very much.

They're not healthier, though, they just don't die of heart disease. 20% infant mortality rate and 67% of the population suffers intestinal worms, not to mention higher rates of other infectious diseases... Their life expectancy is still lower than in developed countries. The article quotes a cardiology expert who points out the results may be skewed because only the fittest people of the tribe even live long enough to have been included in the study (age 40+).

Similar results from the 30 year longitudinal study of the Ornish and Esselstyn diets, which also combine a mostly vegan diet with exercise.

Awww, Bernie Wrightson died? Used to pour over the pages of the Creepshow comic book, marveling at his ability. RIP Bernie, thanks for giving us your best all these years.
