Personal Behavior Choices
- POSTED ON: May 24, 2012

One's Ideals are meaningless unless they are incorporated into our daily lives.
It is easy to be a kind and loving person when surrounded by those who give love and kindness to you. The test of application is, what are we like when we are treated unkindly, how do we respond?

I choose to believe that there is a Higher Power of ultimate good in the Universe. Some people choose to call that Higher Power, God. I choose not to speak specifically about any religion while I am online, but what I believe does determine how I act.

I think that there is an ultimate plan for every individual in the Universe, and that ultimate justice exists for us all. Justice may not appear immediate in our timeframe, but in the scale of eternity, judgment comes. Judgment, however, is not up to me as an individual. My own personal role-models are people like Gandhi and Mother Teresa who choose to overcome evil with goodness.

I believe that my own personal task in life is to work toward achieving as pleasant a life as is possible for myself, while balancing that goal with the goal of doing my best to behave in a kind and loving way toward others ... despite the personal behavior choices that those others make.
Sometimes I'm successful at this, and sometimes not so much.

Choosing a Positive Focus
- POSTED ON: May 23, 2012

I'm been thinking a lot about what my next steps will be online, after this immediate crisis has passed.  There are some of you who share my dieting interests and who have been very close to me during this past year while I established this website, and I feel confident of your continued support no matter what I choose to do here. 


I spent many thousands of my hard-earned savings along with more than a year of long days of very hard work to establish this website, and to buy the equipment to make the videos that I've posted here and on youtube. The day before this Hacking happened, I  paid $600 for an order of 2500 custom-made buttons to pass out to my you tube grandbabies at VidCon 2012, and along with the registration fees, travel expenses, hotel bills that are connected with VidCon, attending this event at the end of next month will be very expensive.  I don't make any money on this website, or on my youtube channel, and these buttons, along with all of my other expenses and my work have been intended to be a gift of kindness.  


I've spent my entire life working very, very hard to earn a living, and to do what I could to help people with their personal problems and their legal problems. There are many things I could choose to do to enjoy my final years of life, now that I'm retired, and old.  What I've chosen to do this past year is to share some of my knowledge and support with others.  


This was received quite well by thousands of people of different ages at youtube, but there were also a few who didn't like me or what I had to say, and those people have been very unkind.  The most disturbing so far, is of course, this recent hacking and destructive vandalizing of what I have worked so hard to build -- simply for the hacker's personal amusement.  The hacker's mindset does not seem unusual to me, because for a time I practiced criminal law, and I saw a great deal of that type of unkindness and disregard for the rights of others in the people who the court assigned me to defend. When acting as a court-appointed attorney I've even experienced having to defend the legal rights of paternity of a father who had abused, molested, and then killed his 3 year old daughter. That child was dead. He was in prison for life, but he refused to give up the legal rights to his other 2 small children so they could be adopted. He had no chance of winning, but the law required him to have a lawyer, and the court assigned his case to me.   I also remember when I first begun my legal practice the court appointed me to defend a...


Status Update: YouTube is Still Broken
- POSTED ON: May 22, 2012

   My DietHobby Channel at the YouTube website is still broken.

So far I haven't been able to get in touch with a human employee of YouTube. 
Unless YT's automated system terminates my channel before then … in 2 weeks my automated suspension, which was set in place by the Hackers, should be up. When that happens, even without YouTube's help,  I should be able to go into my YouTube account to take down the offending Nazi videos, and see if my own videos are still operational there.

In the meantime, here at my own DietHobby website, everything except for the videos, is operational. YouTube is a video hosting website which stores the videos for my use here.   I don't know if my videos are still in my YT account or not. However, I have all of my original videos backed up on my own hard drive, so even if they are no longer on YouTube, I can upload them again, either on YouTube, or on some other video hosting website.

ALL of my videos will definitely appear here on this DietHobby website again. This might take a few weeks or a month, but this DietHobby website will eventually be as good, or better, than before.

 If any of my YouTube grandbabies are reading this, and wish to talk to me,  it's okay for you to leave a comment for grandma here.

DietHobby Hacked
- POSTED ON: May 19, 2012

                                            

Hi all my friends, and my youtube grandbabies.

My youtube DietHobby channel and my diethobby.com website was hacked this Saturday morning around 9 a.m. pacific time, and for the present my youtube channel and my videos are inoperable.

Although my DietHobby.com website was damaged, I believe I will be able to fix it soon.

Hopefully, youtube will help me get my DietHobby youtube channel and my 312 deleted videos straightened out in the next few weeks. I will do my best to respond to those of you who contact me, and remember, in the grand scheme of life, this is a relatively small thing. 

Love you all.
