Good Blog? Hope so.

So, here I am. 

Writing a food blog, maybe.  When I first typed that last sentence, I accidently wrote writing a "good" blog. Let's hope that's a self-fulfilling prophecy. 

I also realize the irony of writing a food blog when I'm trying to lose weight, but really, in all honesty, much of my day is occupied by what will go into my belly -- food and drink. I do like me some libations.

Really, I just want to write more. I want to write about what interests me. And what interests me is food, and related subjects -- drinks, nutrition, food politics, and the culture. So much of what makes us, well us is food. We are like our fellow animals because we need food to survive, and we take pleasure in the obtaining and eating of food.  However, we have surpassed that as food as become a part of our culture, if not the dominant part of it, and that is only part of why it is so important to think a little about what we put inside our mouths. 

I'm still figuring out what exactly this blog will be, so for now, it is probably best that I have no readers, but hopefully that will change. Soon.

This is only a test. Do not be alarmed.
