@HamWithCam With the exception of the beach part, that sounds like a normal day using bike panniers. # Muffin, banana, granola bar, and yogurt. That’s a pretty good breakfast! I normally try for the biscuits and gravy @ work cafeteria. # Captain’s Wafers, coffee, and almond granola – ready to…Continue Reading

Just ran out to Darling’s Coffee on 20th and Pine. Lox and cream cheese bagel, finally! # I ate the center of my son’s cinnamon bun. There’s a special place in Hell for me. # Powered by Twitter Tools.

Seasonal Inspiration

At this time of year, every year, I start getting a fever for some serious woodwork. For some reason, the change to Fall brings out the craftsman in me and I begin planning new designs and reviewing old plans for carpentry projects I’d like to do. Some are extreme, long-term…Continue Reading

She was also, as we all know, insatiably curious. Unlike those Gods of old, however, we celebrate that virtue and have made it our…Continue Reading

The Disney World Report

Disney World Vacation Photos There’s a place on this Earth where reality fails, excitement is on tap, and prices are only limited by your imagination. Walt Disney’s Disney World creation is the most spectacular piece of manufactured tourism in the world. It’s also one of the only places that truly…Continue Reading

Starbucks: Eco-Unfriendly

I have a sordid history with Starbucks and my mug. I can speak singularly about my mug even though years have passed because I’ve been using the same mug now for…jeez…probably 5 years or so. Before that, I had another one. And before that, I think it was the mug…Continue Reading
