Look what the cat dragged up

A few days ago our cat, Lucille, comes walking out of the woods with this baby deer right behind her so, we grabbed our camera and started recording. Of course, we were careful not to touch the deer and, a few minutes later, led it back into the woods and left it where it laid down.

Following up on the fasting thing

We made a blog post on about four and a half months ago about the benefits of periodic fasting with regard to life extension: Here is a link. It has now been about six months since we started this routine of fasting two days each week and we just wanted to do a quick follow up in case anyone was wondering if we stuck to it.

It has been surprisingly easy to keep it going and we have not missed a single day since we started. Lloyd has lost a couple of pounds although, the intent of this was not to lose weight. We still do the fast each Monday and Thursday and have no plans to stop. One thing we have noticed is that it helps to stay busy on the fasting day because you don't think about being hungry if you are continuously occupied. Feeling hungry has really not been that big a deal anyway.
