Ode to a Hambone

Monday, April 5, 2010

The priest came to give him his last rights.  He left amid tears, and five minutes later, Glen was gone. Uncle Glen.  To about 70 people in this area, those two words bring a smile to their faces.  He was going to be 80 next month.  He lived a tough life.  Let’s just say his […]

Don’t Shoot!!!!!!!

Saturday, March 20, 2010

What are my rights? Last month Kelly and I were in New York City for a few days.  An opportunity to get away without the kids – hang with a few friends, and even stalk Julia Roberts at a quiet little Tapas place. We were waiting to meet a friend near Union Square, and ducked […]

Auntie Em! Auntie Em!

So here I sit in my friends’ living room.  Our power is out.  It’s been out for almost 24 hours.  When we called the electric company they said “There are no plans for power restoration in your area.”   No Plans. When you live in the “country” like we do, you really rely pretty heavily […]

Thursday, February 4, 2010

I’m a little worried about social media.  I generally only worry about things I care about – and I am worried. We’ll start with why I care about social media.  I care because it has introduced me to some really incredible people.  I care because it has helped me to reconnect with people that had […]

Saturday, January 23, 2010

Alternate Title:  ”Holy Mole” Just a quick post to tell everyone that lives locally (ok – everyone “lives locally” – but I mean lives locally to me living locally) to try the new Mexican joint: Mole-Mole. Located in the old building that used to house The Sturgeon (the bar/restaurant, not the fish) – this place has […]

homemade pancakes and bacon…

Sunday, January 17, 2010

I love long weekends. Which is a funny thing for guy who still considers himself to be unemployed to say.  I guess I’m not really unemployed anymore – I’m “building a new business“.  Yeah.  That’s what we’ll call it. But I do love weekends like this.  A long weekend in the summer usually means more […]

It started out pretty innocently really.  Salmon, rice, salad.  Dinner for five. (B’s um, “Thing” was here.  They’re not boyfriend/girlfriend, you understand.  But they have a “thing”.  That’s what they say anyway.  Personally, I don’t have a “Thing” I lay around on the couch under a blanket in the dark with.  I have a wife, […]

um, are you gonna eat that?

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

What I’m about to say will not be a shock to my family and close friends… I’m a fast eater. No.  I mean really really fast.  Like so fast your fingers, and even toes may be in danger.  And when I’m done eating, trust me – the food on your plate is NOT SAFE.  The […]
