It’s Valentine’s Day (or Lupercalia, if that’s how you lean), and love is in the air! (Truth be told, it could just as easily be smog, but I’m going to take the high road and remain optimistic.) Won’t you join us on this journey of warm fuzzies and happy feelings before science comes along to [...]
“Good company in a journey makes the way to seem the shorter.” — Izaak Walton, The Compleat Angler, 1653 Car trips — even the ones you make every day — are always better with good company, don’t you think? And I can think of no better company than Diana! (No offense to anyone who’s made [...]
Chocolate isn’t good for dogs. I don’t need a veterinarian to tell me that. However, I did need a veterinarian to tell me that a little bit of chocolate isn’t that bad for dogs. Come to think of it, a little bit of chocolate isn’t that bad for people, either. It’s the lot bit that [...]

You ever do something terrible? Something from which you can never recover? I did. I erased time. I accidentally formatted the footage from earlier in the day for this vlog, so now I’m having a do-over. At least I had a few extra guys left on my quarter. (You know, like when you’re at the [...]
Whoah! Did you catch the big game? The one where the guys wearing jerseys of one color went and bumped into a bunch of guys who were wearing other colors? An oddly shaped ball was involved (I think) to some degree; sometimes it was kicked, but often it was dropped, thrown back and forth, and [...]
