Yes, I'm still here. Life has been, well, life. Some changes have taken place. It's a difficult thing but, ultimately, a good thing. In the meantime, I'd like to get back into blogging and even the newsletter. So let me ease my way back into blogging by reporting that I have received my first FREE sample of something. Lately, to ease mental stress, I've been partaking in the Internet's offers of free samples. Everything from shampoo to tea to coffee to t-shirts. My mail carrier will soon hate me. However, the wave of free samples begins as a trickle. Yesterday I received a free Kashi cereal bar. Very tasty indeed. How healthy has yet to be determined. I did consume 4 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein for my calories. But these types of "healthy" bars and "energy" bars are mostly calories and sugar. Like Gatorade, it's not about health, it's about marketing and sugar. Regardless, I will be documenting the free stuff as it arrives. Stay tuned.
