There goes my hero, watch him as he goes. There goes my hero, he’s ordinary.

Reading this nugget of pop culture goodness I felt like I was five again. Are our children going to see David Blaine and Jimmie Johnson with the same eyes we saw Evel Knievel and Richard Petty? If so, I am superlatively disappointed on their behalf. The world needs more crazy mofos hurling themselves through fireballs. […]

Posted in From the hip

OK, so it’s taken me a month to post any more pictures from the fall races at TMS. I know I’ve been delinquent in that regard. Actually, I haven’t blogged at all since the races, have I? I’m sorry. I’ve had a lot going on. A couple of trips, a holiday, all sorts of business. […]

So if I eat five packages of this my problem’s solved?

Is pink OK?

If you’ve wondered why you haven’t heard from me in the last few days, it’s because I’m in Topeka, Kansas. I’m up here with my mom and sister helping sort out a few things with my grandmother. So far that’s mostly meant carting her around to a few doctors’ appointments and trying to sort out […]

This photo of my dad’s Dodge Charger SRT8 is my most viewed photo in my Flickr stream. As of today it is now over 10,000 views. Yes, that’s the right number of zeroes. TEN THOUSAND views. My next highest ranked photo has just over 3,000 views. What’s interesting to me is that the vast majority […]

3 things I do that are killing the planet and don’t intend to stop doing

Yesterday was Earth Day. The internets were full of all sorts of handy tips of everyday things you can do to save resources and save the planet — things like turning the water off while you brush your teeth or keeping your tires properly inflated. For the most part, I’m fairly environmentally conscious. I reuse […]
