I, God, welcome you to my blog!

The good book says only God is good, so it seems to me somebody needs to step up.

I hope you enjoy reading this, the Jesse Journal, as much as I have enjoyed writing it. Please feel free to subscribe, write me an email, request that I write about any particular topic you may want my perspective on, send a prayer, click on the charity link, or donate money to my bicycle fund! Have fun!

Your pal, Jess

F.Y.I. There are about 1000 posts..

Here's a quote from Fyodor Dostoevsky to start things off right: Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.

healthy america

eating right, exercise, and good healthcare

a mediteranean diet (med, it?) is good, says the NY Times, which includes:
olive oil, nuts, beans, fish (3x/week), fruit/vegetable (2+ servings/day), wine, dark chocolate (over 50% cocoa), whole grain cereals, lowfat cheese, white meat (chicken or turkey -vs. red meat), tomatoes/onions/garlic...

Beatiful weather in Berkeley today.  A good day to swim.  I didn't swim at the Y, but I did work up a sweat for like 40 minutes doing cardio on the elliptical and exercise bike.

From the NY Times:
In 2010, the U.S. spent 17.6% of it's GDP on healthcare.
But 48 million people (16%) lack health insurance.
