End of summer

judging by the temp outside we're heading into fall...soon...snow....ack

well, i guess that means planning a mexican vacation for the family....(and a UK trip for spring)

also...soup...and lots of it...

only 3 months left of 2012...where did it go ? the two ruffians are growing like weeds and becoming busier every day.

the wine will be past it's first stage by tuesday next week...then into the hurry up and wait stage

maybe we can fire up a beer in the mean time....a pilsner perhaps ?

my construction projects seem to be moving along nicely....i'l post a couple pictures this week (flooring should have gone in this weekend)

Also, have a new boardroom table design that I hope to be building...

not too much else to update so I'll leave you with this trailer (walken kicks ass):

Making Wine

Had a fun day of making some bread, cookies and went and bought a wine kit.....why not...
We've been talking about possibly getting into the cider business so we need to learn about what goes into making hootch...and I figured, let's take a crack at wine at the same time.
We bought a kit and some Cellar Craft Premium Pinot Noir...it says it's ready in 6 weeks, but I read online that people are aging it for up to two years...not sure I want to wait that long...we'll see what happens.

I'll do an update over the next while when we hit each step.

Run Forrest Run

Just ran my first race in years...only a 5K...it was a night race (and a great night at that...clear, good temp)...it was good...although next time I run a 5K i won't seat myself towards the back...you end up working twice as hard running behind packs of people moving slower (some walking)

All in all it was a good start off...I'll be getting back into the running thing I think...

It's Aug already

It's August already....haven't been doing too much exciting (a trip to Chicago, Vegas and Whitefish.....only....)
We got a week vacation coming up that should be good and the wife is off to L.A.
Right now I'm planning a much needed man-cation to, where else, the UK....possibly for Match 2013.
I haven't been able to get to any movies yet....damn, there's a bunch out there I have to see...haven't even seen Batman yet...
I'm trying to get motivated to write on this thang but nothing is coming up....I guess I need a muse or something.

I'll leave you with a picture of a new table I designed....it's for sale so if you're interested leave a comment

What the....where have you been ???

Wow...what the hell....no new posts in, like, three months....that's shameful...
so,,,what has kept me so busy ?
Not a whole hell of a lot really....
I'm still workin the new gig (so far so good.....)
I went to Chicago (Gotham City) and Vegas a week ago for a couple trade shows...
right now, just fighting a cold...
It's been pretty frakin boring recently....
BUT
Stampede begins in a week....that's usually good for a laugh or two.
I'll do my best to put something worth reading up (i know.....you've heard that before...but this time I really mean it)


1 thought before I leave....
I went and saw Prometheus...and while I liked it thought it was ok...it was so full of holes it was like swiss cheese
I'm sorry Mr. Lindoff, but your script was.....not good....
I had such high hopes for this movie....for the return of Mr Scott....the whole idea of possibly a horror in space again....but no....just a slapped together flick with so many 'huh?' moments it was a eye roller when it was done...(please don't screw up Blade Runner)
examples ?
there are so many....one obvious one is the fact that in this future where they have science to create AI, and that weirdo surgical machine, it still used STAPLES to patch up the wacky C section (um...they don't use them now let alone in the future)....which happened...and no one seemed to notice....or care....yet alarms were going off and there was all that blood and screaming...AND A FREAKIN ALIEN BABY IN THE ROOM !!!!
Also, the fact that the two dudes got lost in the maze when they had the high tech mapping gear that never lost contect with them and they never lost contact with the ship...wtf??
I could go on, but if you've seen the movie you probably saw most of them...

anyway...let's hope Batman can live up to the hype....

New Phone Pics


I have a new phone so I downloaded a retro camera and the pics turn out pretty good...I think I need a better muse than a coke cup though.....

This constant posting thing is hard

Sorry...haven't updated in a while....
I'll do some updating in about a week...lots going on.

I will leave you with this.....
WTF is wrong with people ?? Chris Brown performs at the Grammys and people are cheering him on and then he wins a grammy ?? I'm shocked that people would so quickly forget that this asshole beat up his girlfriend......

Hello 2012

Well, hello there 2012....what do you have in store for me ?

So far so good...weather has been ok, work is starting off with a bang, got rid of 2 phones, got two new phones, add a new tablet in there, new TV and weeeeeeeeeee it's like I'm a whole new person.

So....resolutions...didn't make any...however, I do resolve to post more interesting/funny/post worthy stuff....less stuff about the ruffians, and more just plain ol' worth reading (you can always find stuff on the hoodlums at the other place....and who am i kidding, here every now and then).

So...for now... please enjoy this stupid shizat
