Ping Doubles Quota … A PDQ Blog

July 19th, 2016 · Tags: Cities · Wi-Fi

Last week was The Chicken Ranch blog.  This week the blog zeros in on a different kind of chicken joint.  Have you checked out PDQ?  Several Houston locations were my first exposure to the franchise, although I see there is at least one in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metromess. I didn’t have time to stop at PDQ […]

Wi-Fi & A Little Ol’ Tale From Texas Rock Lore

July 10th, 2016 · Tags: Arts · Coffee Shops · Wi-Fi

With this new fad, now that records … or albums … or vinyl have become back en vogue, I don’t feel as silly for still carrying around a few crates of music from back in the day.  But man … I wish I had my old 45s too.  For the younger audience, 45s were the […]

June 26th, 2016 · Tags: Cities · Sports · Wi-Fi

How far must I ride to get a win out of my alma mater Texas Tech in the College World Series? In 2014, I rode the new Triumph over from Columbia, Mo., not such a big deal, just 315 miles. This year, I caught the first game of the school’s second ever visit to the […]

Aussie Takes A Spin On Cycle, After Spin Cycle

June 12th, 2016 · Tags: Cities · Hotels · Wi-Fi

There’s not much worse than hotel laundries for the traveler.  Seldom does anything positive come from there.  To summarize: Typically the machines are old and slow Typically the machines are full, but have stopped spinning sometime … yesterday Typically the owner of the non-spinning clothes has passed out after gorging on room service The sky’s […]

Wildflowers Dominate Wi-Fi Tour Of Galveston

May 21st, 2016 · Tags: Arts · Cities · Wi-Fi

  Galveston … right smack dab in the semi-circle of muddy water that is the Gulf of Mexico.  But it’s also a wonderful place, memorialized in song by Glen Campbell, and for me it forever will be the place where the locals run to the ocean, not away from the ocean when severe storms roll […]

Pinging The Who’s & Who’s Not …

May 15th, 2016 · Tags: Cities · Wi-Fi

  Hmmm … as much as PingWi-Fi loves New Mexico and Oklahoma, they don’t seem to be reciprocating:(  Been on the Dirty Gig (in Houston) for a while, so not much blogging going on.  Just looked on GoogleAnalytics to see who’s reading the blog … you know among the normal readership … regardless.  New Mexico, […]

PingWi-Fi Gives The Lay Of ‘The Land” at #DIFF2016

April 15th, 2016 · Tags: Arts · Cities · Wi-Fi

    So what’s Erykah Badu done for me lately?:) It seems she has faded a bit since she exploded on the scene as Dallas’ new “it girl” — “The Queen of Neo-Soul” a few years back, having gone triple platinum with the 1997 “Baduism” … a prodigy of Dallas’ multi-talented Booker T. Washington High […]

Angry Birds, Violent Felines, Catfood Surfing In Miami

March 30th, 2016 · Tags: Arts · Cities · Hotels · Wi-Fi

Once again The Dirty Gig* provided a venue to keep a tradition alive.  A couple of years back, working in the housing projects of New York City, I shared with my inner city workers the magic of the tape ball — a fun little thing I picked up from a high school coach.  Well … […]

Rainin On My SpringBreak Parade … Wi-Fi At Dadeland Mall

March 20th, 2016 · Tags: Cities · Coffee Shops · Satire · Wi-Fi

Ha … those who follow The PingWF on social media probably noted a flurry of activity today.  This means two things.  I have a day off from The Dirty Gig … and rain is forecast here … so I am riding the Apple MacBook Pro, rather than the Triumph Thunderbird … at least for now. […]

Chattanooga Rolls Out Red Velvet For PingWi-Fi

February 1st, 2016 · Tags: Airports · Cities · Coffee Shops · Hotels · Wi-Fi

  In my culture, Chattanooga is a word that translates as nostalgic. One of my bigger public affairs clients a few years back was based in this Tennessee hamlet and my first Wi-Fi Guy blog took me through “Nooga for a few hours. Most nolstalgic, my second visit to the home of Krystal hamburger joints, […]
