The Paleo Chronicles: Eat Bacon. Jog Sometimes.

Starting in 2010 I read all the early Paleo diet books. Wolf. Sisson. Devany. Hines. I skipped the popular wave and then started again in 2014: Tam, Petersen, Sanfilippo and Durant.

There'll be no attempts at worldwide podcast notoriety or "grow my audience" however.

My youngest son has just learnt to ride a two-wheeler. Getting on/off and braking are still to come. All three boys could do it by about three and a half. I used the same method each time. I just made it up. All I knew was I didn't want the kids clattering around on stabilisers.
