I think the Japanese also eat soyeans. Edamame is a little different, because it is made from immature soybeans, steamed. Very healthy stuff. Don't know where you can buy them for home consumption, but all Japanese restaurants have them. I really love eating them, such a nice flavor. A client I had back East had a home in the sticks, and on the way there, were huge fields of Soybeans.
On another topic, my daughter came back late Sunday night from delivering her portion of our institute's beginner course in Charlotte. I realized we really need to get her swamped with business. She has a third client in the works from that course, and maybe one other in the works. We're getting together today to work on some flyers for courses through Spring of next year. Get her busy. She's part of my retirement plan, you know.
We used to be published regularly in one of two journals, which really helped our reputation. That journal stopped publishing practice development articles, but the other still does. Our documentation now consists of 10 notebooks, so we can run bits and pieces for years without repeating ourselves. Means more writing and a little less energy/time for other pursuits.
Some of you older guys, do you find that you are only good for a few hours of work at a time, then you're done, maybe even wiped out for the rest of the day? Breathing is a problem especially with the heat out here on the edge of the Mojave Desert. We're also at about 3000 feet altitude (we're in a low spot). Happily our weather starts cooling off the first day of each season. In the low 60s just now (15 C) at night. Fall is my favorite season up here. Winter gets seriously cold, even occasional snow. We're just 40 minutes from several major ski resorts and we get some nasty cold winds then too.
The more I do, the less I accomplish.
