Pinup Girl Boutique

It was our last day in Southern California and we were heading into Burbank to meet up with some friends and have lunch. It was very hot. Not hot enough to melt your shoes to the ground but close. Sheri and I were moving at a brisk pace to get over to the bakery. We […]

Yukon Ho!

This was not the blog I was planning on writing today. I was going to write a brilliant and witty blog about geeks with a side helping of my geeky wife. Only something insidious and foul has gotten in the way. You know how you go on vacation and you try to cram as much […]

Zip It!

Why yes, I am writing this blog from my room’s balcony while watching airplanes make water landings. After many days of cruising in the Pacific we docked in Ketchikan this morning. The stop I was the most looking forward to and dreading just a tiny bit. I woke up this morning around 5 am and […]

Seriously, Shut The Frak Up!

This was not the blog I intended to write today. That blog will have to wait another day. Now the title of this blog could apply to many things. First and foremost politicians. I mean let’s face it. Every time they open their mouths you have an urge to stick a piece of dynamite in. […]

Traveling Man

Red Bluff is too damn hot. I sometimes wonder how we ended up in what can only be described as Dante’s 4th circle of hell. I used to think we spent our summers traveling because we wanted to see the world. I now know we are trying to escape melting. No one wants to go […]

Frakking Labels! A Geek..Nerd..Oh Who Gives a Fuck Manifesto

If you read my blog with any regularity you know how much I respect and admire Felicia Day. It is not easy to have a career in Hollywood. It is particularly hard to do it on your own terms. She has accomplished a lot with intelligence and sheer force of will. Recently, Ms. Day made […]

Goodbye Ray

I waited a day to write this. I wanted a chance to really think about how I felt. Put into words what Ray Bradbury meant to me. A day didn’t help. I still feel a little sad. My words feel inadequate. I have had authors I really admired pass away in my lifetime but Ray […]

The Half-Marathon Man

The end is very near on my weight loss journey. I have only two more pounds to go before I am back to where I was before gaining the stupid weight back. Except, somewhere in the back of my mind is a lingering question. Can I get back to my college weight? I am not […]
