Carnivore Tour – Apr 2021

If you are vegan, please stop reading now.  You won’t find anything I say or do even slightly amusing or entertaining.  You’ll just get the same feeling my wife feels about me. Many years back during a multi-city, multi-day marketing event, a colleague and good friend who shall remain nameless (Brian Giuffrida) nicknamed our marketing… Read More Carnivore Tour – Apr 2021

Road Trip ’75 (part 3) – Mar 2021

I believe this is the last of my letters home to my parents from our cross-country trip in 1975, from Boston to Denver (the long way).  Some of our experiences from this trip are lost in the rubble, some are reflected in these letters, and some are only vaguely remembered. One such vaguely remembered incident… Read More Road Trip ’75 (part 3) – Mar 2021

Golf: The Dismal Science – Sept 2020

Most people attribute the term “dismal science” to the study of economics, but I maintain it is the study and execution of the game of golf.  Summer is winding down and I thought I would capture a few thoughts on one of the activities that, particularly in these strange times, can provide a little outside… Read More Golf: The Dismal Science – Sept 2020

New Smoker Ooh-ee-Ooh – June 2020

There is something mystical about buying and trying a new meat smoker; a new device to smoke meat, a new technique to improve cooking results.  What do you suppose was the genesis of slow cooking? Do you suppose cavemen (cavewomen, cavepeople?) sat around the fire and said, “Hey, let’s smoke this brontosaurus leg low and… Read More New Smoker Ooh-ee-Ooh – June 2020

Graduation Day – May 2020

Another year of graduating students!  Or was it just another year!?!  I believe this year was, shall we say, distinctive. Let’s consider the traditional high school or college graduation ceremony.  I won’t lie – I don’t remember a damn thing about my graduation ceremonies.  I don’t have pictures of my high school graduation, and my… Read More Graduation Day – May 2020

The Prince Howard Way – Apr 2020

I call it the Prince Howard Way, because this neighborhood has clearly been touched with love and compassion.  When asked recently to donate for healthcare workers at the local hospital, the neighborhood quickly responded with acts of kindness, caring, and consideration. I know this is not just happening in our neighborhood; it is surely happening… Read More The Prince Howard Way – Apr 2020

LinkedIn… and Rural America – Feb 2020

We just spent the last month in (mostly) rural America, driven primarily on back roads.   Upon our return home, for some unexplained reason, I logged into my LinkedIn account.  Why, you ask?  No clue – purely random.  I hadn’t logged on in memory (my blog posts do automatically post on LinkedIn – but without my… Read More LinkedIn… and Rural America – Feb 2020
