Monday Update

Today feeling good. A beautiful sunny day, much like the photo from Saturday.
Got all the details from my local GP about all the tests to date, interesting reading.
Watched the world cup final this morning, and this afternoon freed up a branch that I cut down yesterday, but had got hung up. Also cut down a few more branches, and built a new shelf in the laundry.

Did a little bit of creative writing.

Off to town tomorrow, so may not get to my blog.

I have added the details I got from the medics to the bottom of the “About” section.

About Ted Howard NZ

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) - see

    Hi Ted. Do you guys have snow on the ground, or is it just darned cold? Are your winters harsh like the Chicago area (below zero, cutting wind), or somewhat milder?

    You mentioned you got the test details and it was “interesting” reading. Interesting in a way that was pleasing (positive), or interesting in a way that was non-pleasing (negative)?

    Is your creative writing fiction or non-fiction?

    It’s Monday for us. Len and I are getting ready to drive our bikes (on the back of the car) over to Boone County and try one of their bike trails that we’ve heard about. I’m taking the camera along.


    • Hi Laurie

      Our winters are far more mild than yours. We rarely get snow on the ground where we live, and there is plenty of snow above 3,000 ft at present. Was about -4 outside at dawn this morning, very brisk and crunchie.

      Updated the about section with the details I got from Chris – interesting positive – at least in the way I interpreted them.

      As to fiction or non-fiction, that has got me chuckling. I think it is non fiction at the time of writing, and at the same time I am also aware that it is highly probable that most of what I believe to be true is probably false from some other perspective.

      Tuesday just drawing to a close here, been in Christchurch for the day. Need to do some unpacking.
      Jewelz was not feeling well, so stayed home. Ailsa and I had the trip down alone, which was nice. We had Will along for the trip back.
      My sister Pauline, her husband Pete and their three kids are due here in a few minutes. I have things to do – later …..


  2. While it’s the 13th for me – it’s the 14th for you — HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    Len and I just returned from a 15 mile bike ride this morning. Now we’ve got to move like greased lightening and get ready to head to work at HolEssence. I’ll check out the “About” page during my first window of opportunity.
