THE PRIMARY PURPOSE of this web is to call attention to conditions in the United States that are terribly wrong, and suggest possible ways to make improvements.

If you don't get anything else from this website, at least get The China Study.

See the Health Notes page.

A SECONDARY PURPOSE is to share some memories that I treasure, both good and bad, in the hope that others may find benefit or pleasure.

Glider Flying For Seniors

Glider Flying - Aug 19,2018

When I started on this adventure at age 84, I had serious doubts whether I could still do this sort of thing. After all, it had been 44 years since I did any piloting. First I had three rides at a soaring club, with the intention that I would become a member and get "checked out."  But they had only one instructor, they fly only on weekends, and the numbers ahead of me grew from one…
