The Year To Support Local

I’m not one for making New Years resolutions. I find them pretty much useless. So this year instead of making any resolutions, my goal is to “support local.” But let me back up a bit and explain what I am talking about. What I have done in the past is choose a word or a […]

The Knowledge Gap

Let me tell you an amusing little story to illustrate a point about a thing I’m calling the Knowledge Gap. Most mornings I leave for work quite early while my wife gets our kids ready for school. She makes them breakfast and packs a lunch for them to take to school. It’s typically a healthy […]

C Market Coffee

C Market Coffee; Eat Local

In today’s effort to support a local, family owned business my daughter and I visited C Market Coffee for drinks and a couple of sandwiches. My daughter (Blonde Bear) started with the C Market House Made Lemonade. She declared it to be “not overly sweet and as you can see, it is loaded with fresh […]

Apple Juice in the Vitamix

I’ve had a Vitamix “whole food processor” for about 20 years now and while I don’t use it all that often anymore, when I do use it, the results are usually pretty much 100% tasty. This weekend just gone, I was watching Let it Mix on Instagram make apple juice on with her Vitamix and […]

Lunch at the Ovaltine Cafe

Yesterday I went to pick up a new wool vest for myself (Merry Christmas to me!) from the Filson Store in Vancouver’s Gastown and seeing as I was traveling right by it, I decided to stop for lunch at the historic/nostalgic Ovaltine Cafe. Lunch was good. The food, as usual, was tasty and nicely prepared. […]

Getting Outside

Austin Texas and on to the Houston Space Center

Our third and final day in Texas was spent in Austin and Houston, Texas. Our stops included a cruise along the Colorado River where we go to experience the emergence of literally millions of bats, lunch at June’s Restaurant up in SoCo, and a tour of the Houston Space Center. This was a great way […]


A Weekend of Work, Fun, and Food

A good weekend of work, fun, and food. The first lunch on Saturday was in a tiny hole-in-the-wall place near the Executive Plaza Hotel on North Road. Tiny place that I didn’t catch the name of. Very nicely cut sashimi. Finally, I’ve got the outdoor grill up and running again! The kids wanted smokies so […]
