Warning: Strong language. It’s very early in the morning and I’m back on a plane homeward after yet another trip back to Kansas to visit my dad. This trip ended up being the last time I saw him. Goddamn cancer took him from us late…

It’s good to be home but I am somewhat anxious to get back to work to get my head in another place. Today was a little rough in spots. The last time I came back from KS a few weeks ago I found that…

July 31st, 2018 – this post is NOT for the easily-offended


Goddamnfuckinghell. I am in my hotel near KCI, leaving tomorrow morning to go back home. Today was a rough day with bad news. My dad had surgery this morning to remove the remaining part of the tumor in his bladder. A discussion I had…

Today is a cooking day. The weather is nice and cool, but it is supposed to warm up quite a bit in the next week so I need to get it done soon. I made breakfast sandwiches for the week this morning, then after…

It’s been a busy few days so this weekend of mine was a working one. I had to run errands and get some things done but I think going forward I will be able to get things out of the way during the week…

I awoke this morning, much like the rest of the world, to the shocking news that Anthony Bourdain had died. Bourdain’s shows really sparked something inside, and I could even say he inspired me to not only take some chances and try new foods…

Man was it nice to have the day off and I get another one tomorrow. My first weeks at work have been busy but now it is the real busy season and the pace has definitely picked up. Over the holiday weekend I talked…

The weekend from hell is upon us. Going to be a busy few days coming up and I only have one day off this weekend. A little bit of time on my day off in the morning will be used for another badly-needed acupuncturist…
