We open yesterday with a brunch at Farmer Boy's to keep the specter of starvation from sullying the day.

Then we go to the local B&N to see if we can find a specific book for my wife. They didn't have it at Montclair, but the Chino Hills one did, and they put it on hold for me.

However, I had to go to the office for a class on our new electronic medical records system that's expected to come online in the next few weeks, and that ate up the afternoon.

Once finished, home. I then took my wife to Chino Hills so we could get her book for her. Once the purchase was completed, we had dinner at Panera, which was satisfying.

Back home, I had an essay to write, and I did so; meanwhile my wife watched Black Swan on Netflix disc. Excellent acting, not quite so excellent scripting, IMHO. We followed this by streaming Forks Over Knives, which documentary had prompted friends of ours to become Vegan. Since this piece of work cherry picks data, and doesn't give a balanced report, showing both sides of the argument, we remain unconvinced. However, I will say that we eat lots of vegetables straight out of the garden that my beloved wife tends, and aside from being delicious, we know that they are nutritious. I also will acknowledge that I've massively cut down on red meat intake, and largely replaced it with fish and fowl, but that's not what the film advocates.

Nursing homes tonight after a day at the office; I will be late getting home.

For a review by someone who really liked it, but rather disagrees with them about diet (and has the stack of research citations to prove why).

If you have a big block of free time, she has a series of posts carefully demolishing the China Study.
