Tell Me You’ve Seen Bad Lip Reading

These always crack me up. The latest, NFL Lip Reading for 2017 is out just in time for the Super Bowl. You don’t have to be a sports fan to enjoy. Make sure you go into the archives as well. This one is the source of my favorite quote, “An orange peanut! For me? I […]

Night Owls and Other Dangerous Creatures

I stay up late, but not in a getting things done kind of way. My late nights have more of a watching murdery shows and arguing with people on the internet kind of vibe. I like the idea of getting up early and having a Tim Ferris or Hal Elrod kind of morning, but I […]

I found a site called what-dog.nethttp://what-dog.net that is supposed to tell you what kind of dog you (or your dog) are.

50 Days of Adequate Books (More or Less)

K is for Kayak

I spotted my first kayak of the season today. It’s a more telling sign of spring to me than crocuses. We’ve been avid kayakers for quite a few years. We rented one year and bought a couple at a tent sale the following year. We try to go most weekends, mostly local flat water. There […]

G is for GOOOOOAAAAAALLLLLSSSS!

Gotta have ’em. Unfortunately, I’m not terribly good at reaching them. My initial enthusiasm soon gives way to …meh… Although I seem to be doing pretty well at this blog challenge, maybe in part because of my interest in reinvigorating this blog that I have allowed to go fallow. Maybe because daily posting has made […]

F is for Fashion

F is for Fashion

I’m not a particularly fashiony person, but I seem to have developed a bit of a style. In the winter, it normally involves leggings or skinny jeans, boots, cardigan and some sort of tank or tee. Like this or this from Pinterest. I like to think that I would be fully prepared in the event […]

E is for Everest

E is for Everest

If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you know my obsession with all things Everest. And now the 2015 Everest season is upon us. Everest season? What’s that, you ask? Well, because of the extreme altitude and weather conditions, there is a very tight window in which in can be summitted […]
