20170108_223020

So I just came back in from watching the dog run all over the back yard. Just this weekend she graduated from having to be on the leash all the time to getting free reign over the fenced in property. Supervised, of course. It was late and the stars looked nice. I sat down in…


How I cook Epic Steak using Sou Vide

In the interest of a free and informative internet I will post my full method for how I cooked the most Epic steak in my relatively short life. This is one of two methods I currently use for cooking steak. My other method uses indirect grilling and a spice blend of my own creation. I’ll…


365-Of-2017 January 1st

So I am sitting here watching the end of The Martian while my new dog and daughter play at my feet. It’s been a pretty quiet and somewhat productive 1st day of the year. I am reaching the end of my annual holiday break and I am really not ready to go back to the…


The one where it becomes 2017

“So new year new me.” “2016 was horrible so thank god it is over. Yay for 2017.” I see so many people saying that about the new year. It seems like its the SAME people every year that do it.¬†Oh this year will be better than last year. Blah blah blah. It’s bullshit. A year…


So I am going to do a thing every day…[edit] ok maybe not every day

Ello. It’s been a while since I put anything up here. I haven’t forgotten about this thing I just have not been in much of a mood to actually write anything. Which is interesting since one of the things I have wanted to do is write more.. kinda a paradox. I want to write more…


The one inspired by the very end of Hoosiers

Every place we go is haunted by the memories of the past. Everything you do.. every relationship you have.. everything… all saturated by memories of what once was… Good stuff and bad stuff. And all that is awesome. Even the bad stuff. The thing is… don’t get caught up with the past. It already happened….


…the one about my friend George Germain and The Misfits

There are a few good reasons why I decided, after long (long) deliberation, to write my first real meaningful post about George. Obviously he was an important person in my life at a particularly important phase of my personal growth… so by definition he is someone I should talk about. But also… I am quite…


Watching Video Games Is Fun?

I really don’t get the fad of watching online videos of people playing video games. I know this isn’t a new thing, and I haven’t just heard of it. My daughter got her tablet more than a year ago and became instantly addicted to Minecraft. Being an Involved Dad I had some monitoring software installed….


What is To Life

When I was younger I thought of life as a racetrack that had straightaways and curves. You enjoyed the straightaways as much as you could because you never know when you’d hit a curve. But curves were temporary and once you were past them you were on another straightaway. Basically the physical representation of “This…


Still here…

Just a quick note to mention that I am still here. I didn’t forget about this place.. nor did I drop off the face of the earth. I’ve been going through some Life Things lately and thus have not been motivated much. However I think that will change soon (the motivation portion at least.. )….
