Got up late today and my boss was here so it didn't look good. I am really enjoying the conference and I am stretching my boundaries and am talking more to a lot of individuals. My wife and I are working hard on a few articles I was hired to write and I am excited about the potential of this aspect of my career. I want to find a way to provide this service to myself and my friends with businesses. I think I will start with my personal trainer friend and see how it takes off. Should be interesting.

An old man was found dead in his home, surrounded by upturned furniture, bruised on his head and limbs and partly dressed. The doors and windows were locked from the inside and there is no sign of forced entry. This is the hide and die syndrome where people are found dead after burrowing under things. Shelves, bookcases, under beds and behind wardrobes. Just thinking of his last remaining hours, pulling furniture all around himself, alone, is heartbreaking. Surely a remnant of a deep instinct which is seen in animals from cats to cockroaches. The desire to curl up and die.
