Things you read at 5am........

 Good morning to you..... I wish!  I woke up at 5 this morning and was kinda hungry. I made myself a dinner salad with Ranch and enjoyed it immensely. My cardiologist was not happy with my diet so I have to start being more "picky?" on what I eat. I will also tell you that my blood sugar was right on target this morning so it appears I am headed in the right direction. It is extremely difficult to find food that is acceptable to my problems. Diabetes demands low carbs and heart disease prohibits my favorite proteins. That basically leaves me salads, chicken, seafood and vegetables. I will admit I would love to eat more seafood but its too damn expensive for my budget. Right now in the situation I am in Top Ramen is about all I can afford. Oh well, I'll just have to be careful. The foto above is an old one. That is me in the foto and I am guessing it is over 40 years old.  
 Back then, I really didn't like all the trips to the National Parks and places like that. I wanted to be entertained and Disneyland and places like that were what I wanted to do. I hated going to my grandparents house. Though, I must admit, they did live in California and we did hit Disneyland a few times, so it wasn't all bad. Now, fast forward to today and what do I do? I take the trips I used to hate, to the extreme. These fotos of Monument Valley are luring me to return. In a Jeep. With it being winter, I have returned to my bad habit of watching Moab Jeep videos on YouTube. I really need to figure out a way to return someday. The red rock canyons and plateaus make Moab a giant outdoor art gallery. And, besides the art work, there are the infamous Jeep trails you drive to see the all of the wonderful sights. Southern Utah is probably the best place in the world to have both extreme trails and sights. But, I now toss you Ouray Colorado. The high mountain vistas are spectacular too. I guess if I had to choose I would choose both. What is really nice is the fact that they are like 4 hours apart. In theory, you could run Black Bear Pass in the morning and Hell's Revenge in the evening. Now there's an idea for you! 
So, as for today's title, I read some interesting things this morning. There are blogs out there that pull in over $1,000,000 a MONTH. Huffington Post is like the highest money making blog today. They do a measly $5,000,000 each month. How would it be? I can see that it would require a ton of work to come up with a topic that millions of people want to read each day. I have no type of expertise in anything so I don't think it will ever happen to me. I've done this for years and I still haven't reached 10,000 visits. My web site on the other hand has started to take off. I have an average of 60 visitors each and every day. Not to shabby I think. Its too bad I can't come up with something that would allow me to use my blog and website to make money. I can't think of a better way to work than doing stuff you love to do. Oh well, life goes on. Jeep on my friends.
