Blog change

I have decided to host my own blog. This blog has now moved to

Thanks for reading here and I hope you'll follow me to my new home!

Steak on the hoof

A couple of weeks ago, it was cold in Alaska. No, I mean cold . Really, really effing COLD.

The cool thing about this isn't the fact that a caribou froze standing up. It's the comments, which range from "he'll thaw out and be ok" to Monty Python jokes. It's nice to see that some people still enjoy the classics.

Book Gore

I'm an avowed bibliophile. My proudest moment was when I purchased massive bookshelves and actually had enough shelving room in my house to hold all my books. So, on one hand, I'm finding it a little painful and somewhat gory to look at book art , but it's so damn cool that I can't stop looking at it.

Presidential Inauguration

I will rarely bring politics to this blog, because generally speaking, that's not what I want this blog to be about. But the fact that we're inaugurating our first African American President today is pretty damn cool. So is the hub on CSPAN. I'll be tuned in most of the morning from work to see history happen. Whether he was your candidate or not, I hope you'll tune in with me.
