There's been a little less travel here recently, which is not a bad thing!

Even if we don't run in the same social circles, recently it's hard to go a day without hearing some mention of AI tools such as ChatGPT and their implications for any given industry, subject of study, commercial enterprise, etc. Those who know me from "real life" also know that I've harped on the fact that we must know the "why" behind certain types of decisions etc. Buzzwords … [Read more...] about Workout Logic: ChatGPT and AI Kettlebell Experiments (and some workouts to do)
You can probably tell by the lack of regular updates on here that my schedule has been pretty full so far with 2023. The good news is I've been continuing to work out and record those workouts to use here (along with some new recipes). Some of them are just not ready for prime time yet - I like to test and polish things up before posting them here for you. The Power Hour Half … [Read more...] about The Half and Half Challenge Workout (Outdoor Edition)

Finally... the secret fool-proof method to delicious cauliflower rice! Sure, it's nice and fast on the stove top, and you may or may not have tried microwaving it... but before learning the secret (baking it) I had always been a little disappointed with cauliflower rice at home.
