A good friends wife is in the ER with covid. She’s healthy, 43 and on oxygen/steroids. Her fever broke this morning and she seems to be through the worst of it (13 days symptomatic). He’s one of the best people I know. They’re both very health conscience. He tested negative for the virus and for antibodies. It’s so random. How is it affecting some so severely and others seem unscathed?

Like everyone, I’m tired of all of this. Much of my productivity is in face to face sales and this is hard to replicate. It really is. I feel like a knight without his sword at times.

The family is healthy and generally happy. We had a nice holiday, just the 5 of us. It’s good to know we all still love each other despite how much we are stuck together these days.

Forever Labs is doing well. We just launched SuperShotPRP and look to have some significant sales starting in DEC.

We promoted our lab director to COO and she is AMAZING. Hats off to b_b for the referral. She has lifted so much off of my shoulders.

I have been getting a minimum of 7 hours sleep for the past week. This is amazing for me. I’m starting to realize my age and I need to get consistent sleep, drink water, restrict caloric intake and exercise. The whole “caloric intake,” part is the hardest.

Hubski is so amazing. If anything should ever happen to me I need mk, lil, steve and kleinbl00 to show my kids my posts/comments on Hubski. It would be a great way for them to know me after I’m gone. It’s like a 10+ year long diary covering a LOT of topics. I’m in fine health, but ya never know.

Anyways, hope all of you are healthy and well. Much love.

I know. And the last thing any c level person needs is a tax break. -not being sarcastic. But, they’re not all schmucks. I have a brother in law that is a C level leader and he goes in to this office not because he has to but for solidarity. If we still had offices, and I was requiring my team to go to them, I’d be first in and last out. Just because there is a “C” before the name doesn’t make them a schmuck. Many hospital CEO’s are physicians that practiced for years. Are some schmucks? Sure. But some nurses are too.

I know that complaining about C suite vilification will earn me the smallest sympathy violin playing in history, but they’re not all bad. Many, like a noble captain of a ship, would be the last to go down while the crew flees safely ashore.

But... some are definitely douche bags.

Edit: to be very clear, nurses and physicians and janitors at hospitals should all be heralded and financially rewarded. 100%

    but I am feeling the urge to leave the neighborhood for the countryside. We have a wonderful city lot. I am spoiled. But part of me want to walk outdoors and not hear a road. Maybe it will pass when people aren't an infection risk.

When we moved down to NC we had to rent a house at first. It was a fine home but in a subdivision where all the homes are right on top of each other. No yards. Now, we have moved in to a neighborhood that is very old, very spread out. If you go for a walk you’ll see a few people, but not many. We can spend all day in our yard, have bonfires and be outside without seeing a soul. It’s very nice. It’s had a positive impact on me. I need my space.

Could y’all go up north? Also, Airbnb’s are a fun way to have a new scenery and there are plenty of Michigan cabins to rent with WiFi. Since the kids are virtual schooling, now is the time to explore.

Edit: Also, I like the painting. Is that the one on canvas? That tree in the distance looks like it wants to be a willow. I like how you toggle the line between real and fantasy. It’s whimsical without the whimsy.

Yeah. CEOs are all evil.

Gave the new Fleet Foxes album a long intentional listen. I dig it.

It’s beautiful.

Happy thanksgiving to all that celebrate it. I’ve been listening to Zen Frisbee a lot. I’ve become friends with the guitarist and contributing songwriter, Kevin. This album is good. Have a listen:

I used to try and get everything from local shops, but they all disappeared. I use SweetWater most of the time now. I know they're huge and probably a subsidiary of GC... who knows. I do like that I have time to test drive stuff and send it back if I don't like it. Plus... they send candy. I wonder if there are some sales happening in their stores? I should go.

Got your text Steve. Sorry I couldn’t stop by. As last time it’s my night to take care of dinner and the kids. Shepherds pie and I made a bonfire and s’mores. Next time!!

I am excited to read this, mike. Congrats again. If anyone else picks up a copy, let's discuss after our read. Onward!

I have been exercising everyday, for 1/2 hour a day for 38 days straight. It's called p90x3. I'm supposed to do this for 90 days. I will. I started at about 200 pounds, I'm at 186 now. I feel stronger too. I did p90x years ago, so I kind new what I was in for. For the first 25 days I didn't change my diet at all. Now I have. Instantly I started loosing weight. Just by not eating anything after dinner and not snacking during the day. I eat a sensible lunch and dinner. That's it. I took a before picture. We shall see what the "after," looks like.

Forever Labs is about to launch a new product, which we are excited about. It's a more complete version of a PRP treatment. Our patent allows us to add more extracellular vesicles to the therapeutic fraction. It's nice to be able to have a product people will use immediately for therapies. We are excited about it.

We finalized a raise of capital and have brought our team back. We launched our consumer marketing this week and we will launch our b2b marketing Jan 1st.

My family moved in to a new home. It's exciting. It's the home I will live in for the next 10-20 years, though mk said, "I give it 5 years." LOL. He knows me pretty well, so he may be right.

I am sooooo ready to have trump out of office. I just can't believe the negligence. We are in the midst of a major resurgence of Covid and he's MIA. He has no regard for the country, only himself. It's pathetic.

I am also soooo ready for the vaccine. Just to be able to sit with friends, have a drink and not be worried that I'll get sick or get them sick would be great. To see my family and not be worried. Prior to all of this my grandparents died and I would love to visit my aunts/uncle and be able to spill wine and trade stories. I want my kids to go to a park and play with other kids. I want my kids to GO BACK TO SCHOOL! I am ready. I know we all are.

I really miss traveling. We are planning to go to Hawaii in January. You have to take a COVID test 72 hours prior. I have the place booked. I hope we test negative. I feel like given the requirement for the test, the air travel will not be that dangerous. My wife starts her own clinic in Feb so it's sort of our last chance to do something like this.

We cancelled thanksgiving. We will have it solo in our new home. We will make it fun.

I hope all of you are safe and healthy. Onward! -tng

For someone that spends a lot of time talking about how he isn’t much of a writer, he’s a pretty good writer. I enjoyed the sentiments. But, make no mistake that his book is being released in volumes for economic reasons.

I’m very disturbed by how many people voted for Trump. I’m more disturbed by the fact that so many of them believe his baseless claims that the election was stolen from him. There’s a lot of stupid out there. Education is what this country needs. Critical thinking skills. I also think that two worse things to happen to electoral politics are cable news and social media. Two things Trump has traditionally wielded like a sword.

Thanks for the insight. I found this comment very informative. I’m bullish Re our ability to return to a more normal way of life by the end of 2021.
