Preach is Sister Kirsten!! Well done...
The Lovely & Talented Mrs. Smith and I did the 2nd Annual Top Pot 5k last weekend, and Caspar Babypants were performing. Now, that might not mean much to most of you (some of the hipper parents in the crowd... Continue reading

The problem with dogs is that for all the joy they give us, they’re with us for such a short time. It’s almost inversely proportionate, like if they were more like humans (held grudges, worried about things, etc.) they’d live... Continue reading

How about some music? I have to admit, I didn't really like "Young Folks". It was okay, but didn't really do it for me. That said, I'm really digging the new one from Peter Bjorn and John, the video is... Continue reading

That was a nice list (and thanks for the shout out) - You are too young to be middle age!

It's time for the 2011 Vancouver Sun Run, so the L&T and I are headed up to Canada to face my nemesis tomorrow. When you tell non-runners that you're actually traveling to run 6.2 miles they look at you a... Continue reading

I've been thinking of changing the format of the Friday Morning Pick Me Up - Yes, there will probably be music videos some weeks, but honestly, I'm running out of decent stuff to share. I don't want to copy Steve... Continue reading

Another slightly different FMPMU, but the fact that most everyone is freaking out about the Impending Nuclear Doom (tm) and not really noticing that as of the time of this writing there's a confirmed 26,000 plus people dead or missing.... Continue reading

A little different FMPMU today, in that's it's not so much a pick me up as a request for you to help pick others up. I'll let Mr. Takei put it more eloquently than I can... Red Cross, Doctors Without... Continue reading

Sometimes you just like a song, it's not really your "type" of music, but something about it just grabs you. That's the case for this song (and quite possibly the group, I just heard their latest single "Impossible" which I... Continue reading

While I've been in Manila I've met a ton of really great people, seen a lot of cool things, and ate some good food, but one of the things I've missed is beer. In Manila you've got lots of choices,... Continue reading

Pretty quick one today, mostly because I'm still in the MNL and completely forgot till just a few minutes ago that it was Friday morning in the USA. Generally I try to mix it up a bit, but lets go... Continue reading

Very few (if any) of my friends are Motor Sport fans, let alone NASCAR fans, but I am and have been for a long time. The L&T, bless her heart, follows the sport enough to talk intelligently about it, knows... Continue reading

This first video is so full of AWESOME that even if you don't like The New Pronographers (and seriously, who the hell doesn't like TNP?), it's worth watching! Don't be fooled by the "trailer" that plays before the video AND... Continue reading
