On bitterly cold New England day, with snow flurries falling all around: I find myself in sunny, warm Ft. Meyers Florida at the Spring Training camp of my beloved Boston Red Sox, who took to the field for their very first games of 2014 against my old technical school: Northeastern University and for the double header, Boston College. It was a very good day.
I’m almost at the halfway mark of my Burning 40 goal, and it feels good. I still have a long way to go…but I’m confident that I’ll be at the 180 pound weight by early June (or sooner.) Also in this episode I tell you about a great project for fans (like me) of Black Lab at http://blacklabworld.com/ and I’ll be revealing my “Diet Secrets” LIVE on the Slow Runners Club slowrunnersclub.com tomorrow (Sunday the 23rd) at 3:00 PM Eastern / 12 noon Pacific on Google + Hangout (watch us live and say “hi”).

Well we continued on our homeward route yesterday and it's was really good. All round ___ way behind us and we're back into typical Siberian ___ just these far flat empty planes with little stands of birch trees in the middle like islands. But the one good thing about this flat landscape is that the sunsets seem to be really spectacular because it's so flat you see the sun sinking below the horizon and they just turn the sky this magnificent complete rose colour and it really is amazing. Now that we're driving West rather than East we're driving towards the sun set most of the time so we really get to enjoy them. So it was lovely today even though we're getting into sort of industrial Siberia a bit close to one of the big major cities and the sun set still made everything look really magical. Even the the smoke stacks ___.
