The first time I ever had Duck Donuts, it was one of the first times I visited the Outer Banks of North Carolina years ago. I'd had plenty of donuts in my life, but this place blew all other donut places out of the water. They make the donuts to order and serve them warm… Continue reading Duck Donuts And The Best Donut Ever: Maple Bacon!
I usually work entirely from home, which is great for many reasons. Besides the obvious ones like not having to dress up or fight traffic every day, I love the cost savings of being able to make all my meals at home. Today, I had to go to the office for a planning meeting. We… Continue reading Why Buy Expensive Salad When Olive Garden dressing Is Sold In Stores?
In the Ohio town I used to live in, it's currently -1 degree with a wind chill of at least -20. That's really freaking cold. Having lived there for 29 years, I remember what it's like.

If I had to pay for myself, I would've insisted on… Continue reading My Official Review Of Ruth’s Chris Steak House: The Proletariat Successfully Infiltrated The Bourgeois

In the years since I traded in NE Ohio for Cary, NC and my trucks/Jeeps for a fuel-efficient Kia, I've really missed my old life and hobbies. So, when I accidentally got my… Continue reading You Gotta Get A Little Mud On The Tires
Here I am in my home state of Ohio! It's just as cold and gray as I remember, and I still love it. People are simpler here; they're not as pretentious as the wealthy suburbanites in Cary who all buy the same cookie cutter house for $400k and drive the same $80k luxury SUV in… Continue reading Vacation In Ohio!
