The Shit I get to do….

Well, time keeps on slipping..and all that. I’m constantly amazed at the things I get to do. The world is so full of stuff, and there are so many amazing people in it (once you sort them from the dolts). In the last three years I have lived in Europe for 6 months, helped an international company save tens of […]

What is worse? (really, what is better…..)

Question for you all: If, in some hypothetical situation, you could have your choice between: a) Living 100 years (again, hypothetical, but guaranteed here if you follow the rules) — but, you must relegate yourself to safety, avoiding germs, avoiding food or risk (mountain biking, skydiving, flying, scuba diving, etc). You could “enjoy” yourself, of course, within reason, so long […]

Nothing is simple; Everything is easy!

Man.  I so meant to blog every day. I got lost. I stopped doing it. I am not going to make excuses. Obviously, I didn’t want to do it. But, here I am now, thinking, all of my audience is SUFFERING so for my lack of publishing. Haha. I’ll try doing better. I’m going to be whipping up some new […]

Us vs. Them – A tyrant’s distraction

Are you feeling it? Feeling the BERN? I think he’s going to win the Super Bowl. In other news, the Denver Broncos are, purportedly, the shoe-in for this years presidential election. WOO HOO! FREE FOOTBALL FOR EVERYONE.  That’s their platform. Personally, it seems a little unrealistic to me. I mean, for sure it’s a bit racist. Half the world thinks […]

Adventure – It’s what’s for breakfast, every day!

Woke up this morning to a beautiful sunrise. I made a simple, but beautiful and nutritious breakfast (4 farm fresh eggs, scrambled and a green smoothie with, pretty much, everything in it.) I showered, shaved, got dressed, filled my pockets with my EDC (Every Day Carry). I turned on the Sonos and set it up to play the “A Dotted […]

Mark Manson – The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck

Source: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck Some days I get to read something so profound it moves me. These moments I will share, not that you give a fuck! (and you shouldn’t). But, this is a hell of an article. I suspect I’ll feature Mark Manson often if his work continues to be this great. Go read […]

Love Never Dies!

My Ex! What does it mean? It means that at some point we committed to each other. We trusted each other. We liked each other; perhaps we loved each other. Now, now our relationship is something different. Perhaps that part of you that you gave to me you now give to another? Maybe you keep it for yourself? Maybe it […]

Fair is… What?: Amazon and California – a blogbate

So… My friend @Conejojoe contends: “Fair is Fair: Amazon Should Collect Sales Taxes From California Customers – Welcome! – Conejo Valley Guide.” I DISAGREE! Sales & Use tax is a relatively complex subject. Did you know that if you sell product on eBay in CA you would technically be responsible to pay the Franchise Tax Board sales tax on behalf […]

Moments of Grace

” In the end all we have are the results of graceful moments. ” … Taken out of context, but profound just the same. The truth, of course, is a bit more gruesome. We are left with the results of both our grace and our oafishness. We walk around, looking for our next piece of lettuce, and we tread and […]

4th of July

A celebration of so much…. What gumption it took for the colonists to declare independence from the throne. Was it for the land? Was it for the promise of wealth? Nope! They had an IDEA! The promise they sought was liberty. In fact, they were ready to give up EVERTHING else in pursuit of choice: to live, die, thrive by […]
