Hold the Twigs

This is a real cereal. It sounds made up but it’s not. You can find it opposite the tasty cereal in the cereal aisle in your local grocery.

Supposedly Seedless

August 11, 2011

Umm…I know there are always a few seeds in a seedless watermelon (usually a few little white ones) But Damn! I have never had this many seeds even in a regular watermelon.

It’s nice to see that something is still made in the good old U.S.A….Crap. Never mind.


Last Shuttle Flight

August 9, 2011

I was a kid when the Shuttle program started. I actually got to see one of them on the back of the special 747  they used to transport the Shuttles from where they landed back to where they launched. I was glued to my TV when the Challenger exploded, and I also watched the spectacular destruction of Columbia. Terrible tragedies.

Between April 12 1981 and July 8th 2011 there were 135 shuttle launches.

It’s very sad. The end of an era. I can now cross something off my bucket list…never did get to see a Shuttle launch (in person). Weird that the same week the Shuttle Atlantis was on its last mission I saw this in a client’s back yard. I had to take a picture of it.

I didn’t know it until today, but yesterday was a milestone. Yesterday I wrote my 100th post. Had I realized that I had reached 100 posts, I probably wouldn’t have written about sweatin’ like a pig. I might have written about my favorite post, or the most read post. I could have tried to wow you with a witty meaningful post or something. Oh well, past is past.

I just re-read all 100 posts. Here are a few I enjoyed reading again.

Do Pigs Sweat?

August 7, 2011

I ask because I’ve always heard and used the phrase “Sweatin’ like a pig. I think I heard we had one of the hottest Julys on record. It’s been a miserably hot summer. So I’m wondering, do pigs sweat?

Going Home

August 5, 2011

The worst part about going away is going home. Don’t get me wrong, I love being home. It’s just the thought of leaving the Bay, beach, mountains, or wherever my weekend takes me is depressing. I never want the good times to end. Can you relate?

I’m Back

August 4, 2011

It’s been a while I know. Like most things in life, the longer you put it off the harder it is to get-er done. Or to get-er started in this case. I’m not going to make excuses, even though I have them. I hope you’ve been enjoying your summer.
