Hurricane Season Preparations

The Gulf Coast is well into Hurricane Season. Are you prepared? Here in Texas, hurricane season is kind of a big deal. And, with global climate change making tropical storms more frequent and more severe, it’s getting to be a bigger deal all the time. Usually, we have more than enough time to prepare, if […]

Are We Becoming Obsolete?

There’s lots of talk in the news of artificial intelligence replacing humans. I don’t put much stock in it though, because, frankly, we are a ways off from that becoming a reasonable and less expensive alternative to most jobs humans do. Not all, to be sure, but, most. And, granted, automation has replaced a lot […]

Aerial View

One more aerial view thing next week and I’ll have an actual theme for the month. Once upon a time, I used to watch a lot of the food and restaurant related reality television that seemed to run on the more obscure cable channels.  One of my favorites was Bar Rescue.  And, one of the […]

Uncle Walt’s Health Tips for Men

Seriously, health tips from Walt Whitman himself. I think about health a lot, because I’m overweight.  My cardiologist would like me to lose at least 20 pounds, preferably more.  He just doesn’t quite buy that my wife, being a good Southern woman, expresses her love for me through food.  And, she really loves me.  Seriously. […]

Upgrade Your Instant Noodles

I love ramen noodles, much to my blushing bride’s chagrin. I never understood what the stigma around eating instant ramen was all about.  I love instant ramen!  I’ve tried lots of different varieties, but mostly for flavor ideas.  Maybe it’s the cheapskate in me, but I love the cheapest instant ramen we can get at […]

Prison Diet

Here’s another reason not to break the law; prison food. Seriously, this stuff is amazing.  And, not in a good way. On the other hand, as brutal as it may seem, it does seem like it would make a pretty effective diet.  Recently, The Marshall Plan posted an article titled What’s In A Prison Meal? […]

Hurricane Preparedness

Hurricane season started on Monday, June First. Are you ready? Here in Texas, hurricane season is kind of a big deal.  Or, at least, it is to this kid from the Heartland.  Of course, most of the time, we have plenty of time to prepare because you see these things coming from a long, long […]

More DIY Japanese food

Although, I suppose it doesn’t have to be Japanese… I’m talking about bento, in this case.  Since I seem to be switching between photography links and talking about Japanese food, I thought I’d just go ahead and keep that up. I’ll be honest, I’ve never actually had bento, but I have read about bento boxes […]

Vitamins from Food

A healthy mind is a creative mind! And, let’s face it, a healthy mind is supported by a healthy body.  Exercise is one aspect of that, but at a more fundamental level, properly fueling our bodies and minds is, I think, the most important first step.  Last week, I linked to a site to help […]
