Water, the Real Breakfast of Champions

  The idea of breakfast - and what should constitute it - is largely based on misleading ad campaigns. The orange industry says you need to drink orange juice because if you don't, what the hell are they going to do with all the oranges they decided to grow? Monsanto dreamt of a planet of … Continue reading Water, the Real Breakfast of Champions

Driving America’s Forgotten West

Starting from Seattle with Phoenix as the final destination is really common and easy long-haul route. I've made the trip at least half a dozen times. Its super simple, I-5 south for about 1200 miles and then I-10 east the rest of the way. There are absolutely beautiful stretches from southern Oregon to Redding, California. … Continue reading Driving America’s Forgotten West

American Bathroom Hygiene is Nasty as Hell

How many people carry a bottle of hand-sanitizer with them when they go out? Have one in the car? Next to the sink in your home, where you could easily just wash your hands instead smothering a sticky mess on them and leaving it there? We do this despite the fact that hand-sanitizer kills 99.9% … Continue reading American Bathroom Hygiene is Nasty as Hell

It seems likely that Donald Trump had sex with Stormy Daniels and possibly paid her to not talk about the fact they had sex. Yes, its adultery and an important factor … Continue reading Our President Had Some Kind of Relations With That Woman, and it Does Not Matter

On Gun Violence and Social Tribalism

One of my earliest memories is of my first day of kindergarten with Ms. Eubanks. All the students were sitting cross-legged in the middle of the room as our teacher addressed the class. Except that not all of the kids were lumped together in the middle of the room. I was sitting away from everyone … Continue reading On Gun Violence and Social Tribalism

The Best Ribeye isn’t in America

Yes, I am aware that is a burger...and a lasagna. So what about it? There is no picture of the steak because the shutter speed wasn't fast enough catch it. That ribeye was an apparition from within my belly. It never existed as far as anyone but me is concerned. It just so happens an … Continue reading The Best Ribeye isn’t in America

The modern world is the busiest version of it yet known. It can be difficult to bring everything into focus with all the responsibilities that require our attention. Sometimes it can feel like too much and we shut the bedroom door to cancel out the noise and hold the world at bay; we flip on … Continue reading Finding Your Best Self
