The fact that I cared for this plant and it is healthy and beautiful makes this tomatoes even sweeter.

Notes: current

Yes, today on my 17K walk I have seen this scene: two guys in red shirts were caring a white sofa through the park, and a boy in white ran around them.

Below is a simple list of my more significant runs and walks (those much longer than 10K) in the last months of 2017, in kilometers (km, or K), starting with the most recent ones:

  • December: 17, 9, 9, 12, 9, 9, 8, 9, 7, 8, 10, 9, 7, 10
  • November: 10, 11, 8, 8, 7, 7, 7, 10, 10,11.

I do not count those under 5K.

It looks like I was not making my usual former 10K! I did not track the distance during the runs - it interrupts my audio-books, and I prefer to look at it later - and assumed that the distance I measured earlier was enough. Now I need to run about 1 km further to add 2K and make sure I make over 10 km (6.2 miles). There are a few days left in December, so maybe I could add a few 10s in my list.

Short after an unusually early run today I measured my heart rate, oxigen and stress levels, and have chosen my mood - happy. And then I have noticed I was apparently quite stressed :)

Fruit Plate Airplane

When I need to fly, I always try to request a fruit plate or a vegan dish of some kind, or at least vegetarian, even though I am unlikely to eat most of it.

This year I got lucky on my way to Europe with the fruit on a Lufthansa flight, and it made the trip more pleasant.

I found a very big papaya in a local growers store, around 13 inches long. And it was good too.

It seems to be a grapefruit season, so I've been buying them in big bags and making daily juice out of three large grapefruits. It takes a couple of minutes with this simple tool - I used to have one made of stainless steel - but the hard plastic works well too.
Grapefruit juice is so delicious, make some!


Today I went for a short run,  five kilometers, first time after many days of rain. My heart rate (61 bpm) and SpO2 measurements are good.

George Bernard Shaw

The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them: that's the essence of inhumanity. 

Genetics

Genetics is the study of genes, genetic variation, and heredity in living organisms. A gene is the basic physical and functional unit of heredity. Genes, which are made up of DNA, act as instructions to make molecules called proteins. 

The Human Genome Project has estimated that humans have 20,000 - 25,000 genes. Every person has two copies of each gene, one inherited from each parent. Most genes are the same in all people, but less than 1% of genes are slightly different between people. Poplar tree genome suggests more than 45,000 genes.
