    Does anyone practice Intermittent Fasting?

    The GF and I have tried intermittent fasting for the past 2~3 weeks. It wasn't that much of an adjustment for me as during the week I was already doing something fairly similar as a routine.

    Tommy Lasorda dies at 93

    RIP. I grew up a Dodgers fan, so this hits me. But he did live a great, long life. Rest in Peace, Tommy. The Dodgers are champs once again.

    What wine did you drink today?

    I haven't developed much of a taste for whites yet. I try them every so often, but it's been extremely rare when they've "clicked" for me. The one exception has been Migration Chardonnay. I tad spendy, but I usually try to keep a bottle on hand because I know it's going to be good...
