Sorely Needed Update

I haven’t added in a month or two, so it’s time.

Have you ever tried to move a boulder? I mean a big round rock. You know, it’s really hard to get it started. It takes lot’s of energy, strength, power to get it going. Pushing, using a lever, or having someone help you, you’ll do whatever it takes to get it going and then, it moves a little. It almost feels lighter as it moves. And then with that little bit of forward motion,  it gets easier and easier.  The pushing required becomes less and less.

Well, many of my plans and projects are currently in “boulder stage”. It’s been hard to get them moving.

But once started, they’ll become easier and easier.

And so it’s time. So here I am.


What’s a glob?

Is it a blog or a glob? Well, today I’m introducing my Glob Blog.

(this is the first post and it’s coming from my phone as a test of look and feel.)

Glob Blog will be about me and my life journey. Glob Blog comes from my years, now almost two full decades of living with cryoglobulinemia. It’s a medical condition. There will be much more to come about this.

But this won’t be just a medical blog. As I said, it’s about a life journey. There will be much more to come about this as well.

Talk soon.

Please, Baby Boomers, mark your calendars

Liver disease, liver cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, and an increasingly poor quality of life is what’s in store if your Hepatitis C goes untreated. It’s true, and it’s not fun, believe me.

Here’s another fun fact: Baby boomers, those born in the years 1945 to 1965, account for more than 75% of the cases of Hepatitis C.  (See the CDC page Here )

If you think you may have been exposed, even in the slightest manner, it’s really nothing to get tested and could be the one thing that prevents a very serious downhill slide in your life, your healthy life.

The second annual National Hepatitis Testing Day is May 19, 2013.  Mark your calendar and go get tested.


Hey look, I’m a regular guy, married to the sweetest woman in the world, a Dad, sports guy, good time music lover, just me, you know.  I was infected. And you know what:  it doesn’t really matter how, it happened. I dealt with it.

Now after treatment (perhaps more about this at a later date) I can continue on virus free. The medical advances are there and better ones are coming. Get tested. Get treated. Don’t wait.

How To Write A Blog: 10 Obligatory Blog Posts Every Blogger Has To Write At Least Once

Obligatory re-post:

How To Write A Blog: 10 Obligatory Blog Posts Every Blogger Has To Write At Least Once.

OK, so what happens once something is posted?

I’ve made a couple of initial, short posts on this blog just to get my feet wet.  I’m not having difficulty with getting something “out there” but I’m curious about something. These little meaningless posts I’ve put up have been “liked” by others.  I don’t think they were anything special to speak of, but for some reason, others felt otherwise.

Now I’m not so ‘net naïve that I don’t know people go all over the place giving thumbs up and liking what others have written, but I think there’s something more going on. I’m questioning whether or not this is some software, some ‘bot, that’s liking what I wrote.

So, do you really like my blogging or do you just want me to look at your blog? Also, why are you sending your software to do your work for you?

Anyway, I can admit to a pleasant feeling when I thought you may have “liked” me. Don’t we all just want to be liked? Guess it doesn’t matter then who or what likes me. I’m still flattered by your interest.  

So, please like me again.



What I like most

What I like most.

What I like most

Just want to get started somehow with this blogging thing so it seemed easiest, and perhaps best, to start with a list of what I like most.

Things I like most:

  • Travel
  • Music
  • Sports (ice hockey)
  • Dogs

Now that’s just the short list, but very accurate as those are the things that bring a smile to my face and get my heart pumping a little faster.

Of course my family, the people I love, and my happy home are my soul, my life, and the reason for living. Without them, I’d never be able to even make a list.

That said, I think I’ll be blogging here about the things I like most.

Travel – Patagonia anyone?
