    • Good for you, David. Diet fads are be bad news. I haven’t read the full “Skinny Rules” book, but the list of 20 tips seem pretty common sense to me: Drink plenty of water. Eat vegetables and fruit. Get enough sleep.

      Plus also? They’ve given me 20 photo ideas for 2013. 🙂

      • and just sound normal living advice….no hyper boil to make folk feel guilty. Like not going to the gym to which my favorite reply is ‘buy yourself a dog, they demand you give them plenty of exercise and are also more sociable than the gym and the focused individuals with the earphones in. Rant over. Cheers

      • It was a good rant, and I agree with you! I’m not going to say that I NEVER work out in a gym. I do. Usually while my kids are at tennis lessons at the same gym and I can go get on the machines easier during that hour to myself than anything else. But what I REALLY like to do is just stay active while doing something else, like going for a walk outside with my camera. Thanks for stopping by and chatting with me. It’s been fun!

      • At the risk of being a bore…I opened a Professional Photo Journal last night. Guess what a 2 page spread on Keeping Fit, building up the muscles to be able to hold the camera steady (quote)…Now most photographers I know walk, hike, cycle, climb mountains reach heights most folk would never attempt, scale buildings and generally (both pro and none pro) lead very active lives. They also do that with half a tonne of equipment on their backs or over their shoulders. So why the need to devote space in a photo magazine on how to exercise…are we so obsessed with fitness? OR do all photographers drive to a shoot, open the door, lean out and snap before driving off?
        Boy I feel good after that.

      • That is interesting. I can’t imagine a two page spread on exercising in a photography journal, especially as the amateurs I know are all very active folks as you astutely point out!

      • It is true …and it is a serious feature with more to come (dietary advice no doubt to follow). The world is going mad!

  2. Compared to Germany or other European countries, bread in the US feels like biting into a sponge. I always buy whole grain crisp bread by Kavli when I am there.

    • I know exactly what you mean, especially when it comes to white bread and related items. With the exception of the UK, I can’t think of one bad bread experience anywhere else in Europe. Ever.

      That said, I still ate one of the croissants fresh out of the oven, and it was pretty darn good!
