My Ramblings

After a brief, unplanned hiatus. . .

So, November 2 happened.  In the words of Forrest Gump, that's all I have to say about that.  I took some time after that to relax, do some stuff for me, injure my shoulder, rest, reflect, think, work, and do stuff around the house. It is interesting to look...

I felt like chicken tonight.

Tonight's dinner was a home-run.  Seriously.  It was utterly amazing. And simple to boot. I had some left over veggies I wanted to use so defrosted some chicken to go along with it. Here's what I did: Veggies 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into...

1.21 Gigawatts

Not many people know this, but I'm a huge fan of the Back to the Future trilogy.  I own the special edition DVD of the three movies and I've been known to just hunker down and watch them all - including with the bonus pop-up trivia feature.  I'll often quote...

My herd.

I've always been a big fan of animals and have had pets most of my life.  When I was little there was the standard string of carnival goldfish, a parakeet, a gecko (that phase didn't last too long), hamsters, in addition to Snickers the cat (that ended up living...

You’re allergic to what?!?!

After 27 years of life my body decided that it was going to be allergic to a bunch of foods.  Let's just say the process of figuring this out was not an easy one and involved a number of trips to the ER, my doctor, various specialists and more tests then I care to...

Minnesota’s Capital City – the Good Twin

For the last 3.5 years I've called St. Paul, Minnesota my home, and it truly has become that - my home, my port in the storm, my happy place.  One of the best parts of this city is the Capitol.  It is a beautiful building and one of my favorite places to...
