Shifting gears

Moving away from idiotic driving incidents… here’s a cute picture of me, my cousin Mike and a puppy. 🙂 Mike will be flying in from Portland on Thursday (and boy will his arms be tired) with his kids. He’s never seen our house… he doesn’t come around these parts too often. Should be a great […]


So, this morning, I got in my car, opened up Maryellen’s side of the garage so I could easily pull my door back down afterwards (she has an opener, my side is manual) and backed out… but I never opened up MY door.  CRUNCH!!  I’m such an idiot in the morning.  I was able to […]

Holy cow!

5195 views of the pepper-eating YouTube video as of this evening. Sheesh! Thanks to everyone for spreading it around the net. Weird to see something spread like that. Almost viral! w00t! 😉 –Update– It’s Tuesday morning now and it’s up to 6647 views.  Just bizarre…

Holy HEAT!!!

Well, tonight, thanks to my old friend David at Schedel’s, I tasted the bhut jolokia pepper… the hottest in the WORLD! It definitely lived up to its hype (kind of the iPhone of the pepper world 😉 ) Maryellen helped me document the moment and I uploaded it to YouTube. Wow! If you can, I’d […]
