Music Monday – “Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit terrified/And then I see the look in your eyes” #solareclipse2017

There was no shortage of songs to listen to during today’s solar eclipse. But in terms of a song to highlight for my Music Monday post, there is only one choice – a song I’ve loved since it came out in 1983 (and which I kept playing on repeat throughout the morning before the eclipse […]

Saturday Snap – Honeycomb Campfire

Not sure if there’s another name for this style of campfire (maybe “log cabin”?) but I’ve become a big fan of it this summer, partly because you can build it so big, sort of like the world’s most dangerous game of Jenga! 😉 The day after a fun pot luck supper with many of the […]

Friday Fun Link – r/solareclipse

We were out at the lake all weekend and just got back today (Tuesday) but I’m going to do a few quick backdated posts for the past few days starting with the Friday Fun Link I missed – Reddit’s r/solareclipse sub-Reddit which actually works really well as a delayed link because it now has lots of […]

Within 24 hours, it’s blown away my previous record holder which, ironically, was about a random encounter I had with Brad Wall, soon after he axed the Film Tax […]

My Trip Advisor Review of @SandosCaracol #allinclusive Eco Resort (with bonus pictures)

It’s still pending approval on Trip Advisor but I thought I might as well post my review of Sandos Caracol Eco-Resort, the all-inclusive we just stayed at here as well (with bonus photos, external links, and a few other edits/additions)… [Edit: This might not end up being my Trip Advisor review after all.  I got […]

How Louie CK Tells A Joke

I have so many “mini-interests” in my life and comedy is one things I’ve long loved (I remember going into the Luther College library in undergrad intending to do a paper that was due the next day, stumbling upon a book on the “philosophy of comedy” or some such thing and then ending up doing […]
