Kickstarter - gokey: keeping your keys safe on the... →
This is a pretty cool idea. Keys, or a key rather, is an annoyance whilst running. I’ve done it all, shoelaces, shorts’ string, the goofy pocket in the shorts, holding in hand, or right now I’ve got one of those rubber springy wristbands. I actually wind the key through the band because I don’t like the key flopping around. This seems like a simple enough fix… $15,...
Borracho Beans Recipe
As noted before, I’d be throwing down some borracho beans. First, I must note a few things: One, I’ve never made them before so they were either going to be borracho beans or pendejo beans. Two, I bought the wrong damned beans; realized this late last night; too late to soak them; had to buy canned this morning. Three, I mistakenly pulled out an Abita from the fridge instead of the...
Tattoos in San Antonio
Only 18 hours left on this LivingSocial deal. Check it out here. Pay $60, get $150. I immediately bought mine and talked with Matt the following day. We’re scheduled to go in 10 days! I’m going with something a little bit different but should be a kick ass piece. As expected, this bare spot on my right arm just doesn’t look right. Regardless, if you’re around San Antonio...

New Running Kicks
Remember the other day when I mentioned my friend who told me about RoadRunnerSports 90-day no questions return for VIP members? Well, my friend received a silly new pair of Brooks PureFlows today via a credit he had from a previous return. Oh, the smell of new running shoes! Of course, I’m being purposely facetious. This is really nothing more than an unsolicited advertisement for a good...
Food, beer, & other goings on...
Look for the following recipes this week: Borracho beans. When you eat tex-mex or latino food you probably always get the refried beans on the side, which is generally standard. You are wrong. Get the borracho beans. Or in some joints they have charro beans; similar. Hummus. It’s been a while since I’ve made my own hummus. It’s actually pretty easy. What’s not easy,...
USA Science & Engineering Festival →
My daughter is visiting this today for a field trip. A wee bit jealous. She knows that the MythBusters guys and Bill Nye will be there. Bill Nye the Science Guy!!! She did not appreciate my enthusiasm for possibly talking/listening to Bill Nye. I don’t know much about the festival as it’s only the 2nd annual so I can only go by what’s presented on the site. At this point, I...
It’s purpose, to save the world: It’s method, to blow it up.– My adaptation describing the United States government from a Winston Churchill quote on Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. Interesting and sad how it fits.
For runners racking up the miles:
While running is generally one of the cheaper lifestyles at it’s core, if you run long or often, the one inescapable expense are proper shoes. For those of us who are older, or even those not blessed with superior running genetics, mileage tracking and attention to wear is paramount. I don’t need to tell runners about tracking miles/time however. That’s a given. I’m a fan...
Rubio gives the most hawkish foreign policy speech... →
This is our future, folks. Please stop to read the writing on the wall here. As the title states, he is the new golden boy of the GOP. I would bet my left nut that he would be given an appointed position in a Romney administration and/or will be running as the GOP candidate during the 2016 presidential elections. Perhaps regardless of who is president. Crazy, right? Just read the article…...
If you're in/around San Antonio
Or anywhere in Texas. Check out the LivingSocial deal for today. Pay $60, get $150 towards tattoo services at Wicked Ways Tattoos. My latest was done by Matt, but check the work of Tonee and Norm, the owner, as well. All legit! I bought mine immediately. Time to get rolling on the next piece!
(And Gents for that matter) If I hold a door open for you, which I always do, not thinking twice about it, a simple thank you would be awesome. Actually, I’d take a thanks, a high five, a hey, a nice bald head, or even a simple fucking head nod…just a simple acknowledgment that you are a living human being! I don’t even get damned eye contact! 3x in the matter of 3 minutes!...
Jamie Oliver: ‘government inaction’ worsens... →
Yes. This. Need more of this! There are very few people, who are in a position to be heard, are willing to call an ugly baby an ugly baby. Jamie Oliver has been on this crusade for a couple of years and he’s finally gaining some traction. While this article in particular is referencing Great Britain’s school system, he’s echoed some of the same for ours here in the States....
A few thoughts on a few things:
Sunday, April 22, 2012 First, NHL playoffs. It’s gone bananas! Nashville beating Detroit? Ottawa up, Washington up, LA up? Obviously sans Buffalo the only thing I care about is that Boston looses. The Caps are up 3-2, if they could just hook a brotha up with one more win, that’d be pretty cool. Vermont passes bill to require GMO labeling, kind of. A VT House panel passes the bill. Now...
