My Blogs


  • GENEALOGE

  • This is my oldest blog and I use this for news and notes about my site
    Danish Census and Church Books, other sites, and my daily surfing of the net.
    The blog has been rightly criticised as chaotic but googling will discover some pearls.

  • Exploring Rootsweb

  • I spent a lot of time adminstering message boards and will build up a guide to Rootsweb.

  • Exploring Ancestry dot com and co uk

  • I log on here nearly every day to surf the census and do look ups for myself and friends, and it is so big that a guide is needed to the many databases.

  • Getting to know AOL

  • America Online has become my favourite ISP in UK and I use AOL for chat and as a BBS.

  • Viking

  • This will eventually include a viking novel in public first draft, but also has stuff about modern Denmark.

  • 1805

  • This started as a project to translate selected pages of the diary of Hans Christian Andersen but he was born the same year that Vice Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson died and I am comparing what UK and DK will celebrate in their 2005 bicentenary .

  • Memories

  • I am living history because I was born in 1936.

  • Hugh's Review of Reviews

  • My first success as a freelancee journalist was in the Record Review in 1960, and I enjoy bring critical and analytical. I have retired as a musician and recommencing my career as a writer, I have decided to self-publish in the blogsphere rather than on paper.

  • Hugh's Bloog

  • This is about blogging - and other silly stuff like my health and web oddities.And my latest diet - I put on 5 kg (about 10 lbs) over the summer - and I need to lose about 60 kg but arthritis limits my exercise possibilities.

googling pyra ended here
and a food pyramid for diet of the Mediterranean region circa 1960

via hotani blog
Date Posted: 2003-10-05 02:11:26

Food and Nutrition
This site talks about the diet of the Mediterranean region circa 1960. It says the following:

...the rates of chronic diseases were among the lowest in the world and adult life expectancy was among the highest for these populations at that time, even though medical services were limited...

Really good reading, and an image of what the food pyramid would have looked like for that region at the time. It has red meat at the very top with 'monthly' beside it! Daily items included whole grains, fruits, beans and nuts, vegetables, olive oil as the primary fat, cheese and yogurt.

What I call a half vegetarian diet,
in other words eat like a veggie daily with added fish and meat now and then.

wherever possible, seasonally fresh and locally grown foods like get to the market not the supermarket. Welcome to Oldways

had a simultaneous failure across multiple machines responsible for the
