  • Redemption Dinner II

    Last night, I got to redeem myself a second time. A couple of months ago, I made this Turkey Pumpkin White Bean Chili. And I screwed that one up, too—but it had nothing to do with alcohol. I have only… Read More ›

  • Redemption Dinner

    July 3, 2020, was a bit of an embarrassment and a day I’d just as soon forget. In fact, I pretty much did, as evidenced by my day-after post. Without going into too many sordid details, there were many hours… Read More ›

  • Three Daves, Man

    Today has been considerably more relaxing than yesterday. I watched SNL with a cat perched on my lap while drinking coffee. Dave Chappelle was great, and you can never go wrong with the Foo Fighters as musical guests. I’ve seen… Read More ›

  • Thank You, America

    Today feels like it has lasted approximately 47 hours already, and it’s barely 3:30. Probably because I got up at 5 a.m., dropped Tara off at the airport exactly one hour later, and then drove an hour+ to Spearfish for… Read More ›

  • 80º in November

    Lost in the shuffle of all this who’s-our-next-president? uncertainty today (though it seems pretty clear to me) is the fact that South Dakota, which went to Trump with 59% of the vote, actually passed ballot measures legalizing both medical and… Read More ›

  • Put it in D

    When I turned 18, I registered to vote as a Republican. Not because of any deeply ingrained political leanings; I knew very little about politics back then. My parents were Republicans, and so was Alex P. Keaton. That was good… Read More ›

  • A Bizarro World of Miniature Cows

    Today felt like bizarro world, because it was light instead of dark when I took my early morning walk before work, and dark instead of light on my commute home from work. Also, I wrote an article about cows today…. Read More ›

  • Give Me Liberty? Give Me Death.

    I am annoyed with Liberty Mutual, and I’m not even a customer. It’s their jingle. I hate it. Seriously, some guys got paid big bucks to sit around a table in a fancy conference room and come up with this?!… Read More ›
