Linkage: Taking action, allowing others to be themselves, and Super Bowl bars

There’s a lot of good stuff around the interwebs. Here’s some of what I’ve been reading lately…

  • What you don’t do doesn’t matter: “Every day I think all kinds of nice things about people, and maybe 5% of them make the transition into something I actually do. Thinking about someone doesn’t help them. It’s only when our thoughts translate into actions that we reach out of ourselves and impact the life of another.”
  • That’s not who I married: Allowing your spouse the freedom to be: “When you say that you know everything about your spouse, then you have taken away their freedom to be who they are. Even after 65 years of marriage she is till a mystery in many ways.”
  • 11 Things I’ve learned in my son’s first six months (Part 1 and Part 2): I have a lot of friends who’ve had babies recently. We hope to have babies someday. I appreciated the author’s humor and candid thoughts on life as a father. Things like Lesson #8 – Don’t trust your baby’s smile.
  • And finally, this recipe for kitchen sink Super Bowl bars looks like a good thing to make any time. Like maybe for the LOST season premiere??

  1. Exactly how do those Super Bowl bars fit into the Primal Diet?

  2. haha. they don’t. but they’re a great “make for other people” thing, don’t ya think?

  3. Well, they actually do have fruit in them and you could throw in some nuts. Use dark chocolate, leave out the marshmallows…use oat flakes instead of corn…they could be kind of primal. Unfortunately, for me to like them, I would have to leave out the dried fruit…ugh…and add peanuts…mmmm…use Chinese noodles instead of corn flakes or marshmallows…and…they have just turned into Grete’s Haystack cookies! 🙂

  4. Jon, i’m glad you like the posts i wrote on how to be a good friend to new parents!

    Also, it’s a privilege to be on the same list as Chris Guillebeau and the gooeyest, loveliest chocolate bar thing i’ve ever seen. Those look amazing! Lost it is!

  5. I’m excited . . .is dark chocolate part of the primal diet!!!??? Yeehaw!! I’m in!!

    1. Well, it’s a “sensible indulgence” – so it’s an ok dessert. Who knew the diet thing would have shown up as the focus of this post? I think it deserves it’s own sometime soon…

  6. Wait? Is the Mark Batterson Primal book and the primal diet related?

    Or, are you just into Primal things these days and I missed it?

    Like Prime Numbers…2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 41, 43, 47, 53…

    okay, I’m done now.

  7. Oh yea, and when I saw Super Bowl Bars, I thought the bars would be a food treat made with all the foods advertised at the superbowl…namely the main ingredients would Doritos and Beer.
