On Saturday morning, my cousins and I decided to go for a little bike ride around a small portion of the newly popular “paradise loop”…we started in mill valley, took a break in tiburon (left one sick cousin behind), got halfway to corte madera and saw a cool looking staircase headed up towards the woods: Evan..
So…as I was updating some files for a couple of my sites, my domains (including this one) were firewalled at work. Kind of annoying but I understand. My updates might not be as frequent going forward. The week was a long one – I got food poisoning on Wednesday night and felt about 11 lbs…
I hate to get all preachy and righteous, but I find these articles and stories about the ‘Great Pacific garbage patch’ fascinating. It seems altogether inconceivable, yet upon further consideration, completely possible. This flashed across my newsfeed the other day and it reminded me of the garbage patch. I remember seeing similar articles (although geared..
The older I get, the more I notice how fast time goes by. More things seem to be going through my head and less things seem to be getting accomplished. It’s basically…work…relax…sleep….work…relax….sleep. I don’t seem to have much time for my other interests, anymore, and I can’t imagine having kids will help that out at..
I caught the tail end of one episode of this show and it looked really interesting. It looked like these people were traveling all over the world trying to find alternative cures to stubborn ailments and the only one that seemed to work was tongue acupuncture. As a fan of acupuncture, this gave me a..
Being that I pretty much grew up on a skateboard, I’m a huge fan of Jim Phillips’ art. Check it out.
Just started this book the other day. It’s basically the life story of Vegan ultramarathoner Scott Jurek – this dude is the truth. I don’t know why, but when I feel like aspects of my life are lacking I feel the need to read about them as they stay fresh in my mind. Right now..
There used to be a really nice 9-foot hoop behind the Truckee Recs department, which made for some awesome photos for guys like me who couldn’t do anything special on a 10-foot regulation hoop. Cruz and I went out there one day for a nice little photo shoot. Here’s a few few of my favorites:..
Back in 2005 or 2006, Toni got me tickets to see Arrested Development at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM!). It was around Christmas and we made our way from Bay Ridge up to Flatbush and I believe we had front row seats…a couple of things I’ll always remember about this show – first, it..
I’m pretty religious about keeping my teeth clean. I want one. Bad. http://www.blizzident.com/index.html
Another great book I recently finished: A pretty fascinating story about a pretty average overweight guy that just decided he had enough of being out of shape. He started eating right (veggies) and started jogging before he decided he wanted to give an ultra-marathon a shot. At 40-something years old. Eventually, he went on to..
Commuted to work yesterday morning on my new (old) road bike. 6.5 miles up Balboa down through the TL. Decided to ride home today on a different route. Took ‘the wiggle.’ Highly recommended. What do you know about this here?
If you’re not paying attention, growing up in Tahoe can really suck. Summer is always beautiful, but as soon as winter rolls around it’s not much of a surprise to find yourself seeking shelter from the weather for 8 months out of the year. When I was growing up there – my friends and I..
