tatiana_jimonlight

I am interested in fine-tuning the posting schedule according to how people read JimOnLight.com – I’ve always posted most things starting around 6am central, and I spread things out as the day goes on.  What time of day do you read JimOnLight.com?

If you’re an RSS feed reader, could you vote in the poll below?  Pretty please?  Feeders are readers and are just as important to me as everyone!

A JimOnLight Community Question: How Do You Stay in Shape On The Road?

This might be a silly question for some, but for many people who work across the industries of light, being away from home, family, friends can be along the same vein as being away from the treadmill/elliptical machine and a healthy diet.  All of the ways that we live when away from home can be positive to our experiences of the world and of our current away gig – but sometimes we party like it’s 1976 – er, I mean 1999 – and forget that we’re actually working and not just having a  vacation.

One of my goals while here in Sweden is to lose some weight while I am spending lots of time in front of my computer learning about spectral power distribution curves and how Americans are apparently silly that we call fluorescent lamps in 8ths (like a T5 or a T8).  It’s getting colder here in Sweden, so every time I go outside to run or jog or play basketball, I get sick for 3-4 days.  This is forcing me to find other ways to observe some moments of cardio, and the process is going s-l-o-w-l-y.  My problem might be one of motivation, especially after a 16-hour or 18-hour day.  What’s your excuse?

I ask for your your community input on this one – can you answer the poll below and maybe leave a comment about how you stay in shape on the road? If you don’t stay in shape on the road and don’t really care – why?  If you are having a hard time staying in shape when on the road but are trying valiantly to do so, what are the problems you’re having?  I realize I’m opening myself up for one of those GI Joe jokes here – but in order to learn about light and practice our art and craft, we must maintain a healthy body and mind.

What tricks and/or tips can you share with the JimOnLight.com Community?

POLL: How Do JimOnLight.com Readers Feel About Healthcare Reform?

I’ve been following healthcare reform in the United States for the last few months, and no matter what happens, it affects those of us in the lighting industry just like everyone else.  There are pros and cons both ways – many of my friends and colleagues in the industries that work freelance have self-insurance, which stands to take a hit also either way.

I am conducting a plain ol’ poll to find out how people feel about health care in the United States.  Do you think we need to reform the process, or should we leave it alone?  Please vote, no matter where you are!
