  Even my friends who hate motorcycles (and blogs about motorcycles) have probably heard or seen the slogan:  “Loud Pipes Save Lives.” Apparently I needed some louder pipes the other day.

    It’s one of the more common themes in Sci-Fi — the parallel universe — a place where everything you know exists but everything is different. Ha!   Well, I experienced a little PU in my hotel room the other night in Pocatello, Idaho.  It’s a long story … The disaster team, traveling on […]

When I met the man who compiled a priceless collection of Asian art, I was honored and shook his hand quite formally. When he told me that he bought 60 jade artifacts in a shoebox from a store in Philadelphia for a thousand bucks in the ’70s — including a jade cicada ornament from the […]

Ground Control To Wi-Fi: Ground Cover, It ISS What It ISS

February 25th, 2018 · Tags: Cities · Gadgets · Satire · Wi-Fi

    The incredible preparation for an International Space Station,  an ISS, orbit goes unnoticed by many. First, I set the Mr. Coffee Bro to percolate black magic, precisely 15 minutes ahead of the flight plan over Texas.  After buttering yesterday’s flour tortilla and sticking a space-ready-and-already wrapped banana in my pocket … and of […]

  I get an eye examination and new glasses about every 10 years, whether I need it or not. Ha. Of course the doctors tell us we need to be checked every year. I’ve tried that and guess what, not only do you get a new pair of glasses every year, but the eyes seem […]

Heart Of Dallas Bowl: Utes Down Mountain Men

December 28th, 2017 · Tags: Cities · Sports · Uncategorized · Wi-Fi

“Never give up on your team.”  I preached that to my kids for years, the kids that I coached, or anyone who would listen.  It makes me a little furious when I see fans leaving the stadium before the game ends … even if their team is behind by three scores or whatever. Never give […]

The Dirty Gig is full of characters … never a dull moment … And Puerto Rico was no different.  Working at the storied El San Juan Hotel in Carolina, Puerto Rico, one of my colleagues supervised a laborer named Ura who just stood out above the others … for his personality and attitude … not […]

Immersed In Puerto Rico … Same Same, Yet So Different

November 26th, 2017 · Tags: Cities · Restaurant · Wi-Fi

Puerto Rico … take two. As with many a mainland kid in the ’60s and ’70s, Puerto Rico first showed up on my radar with the reading of Pastor Nicky Cruz’s “coming of faith” book “Run Baby Run.”  The gritty Christian bestseller chronicled Cruz’s take on Puerto Rican culture, dating back to his childhood memories […]

What Is Burnt Orange & Crimson All Over? Hook ‘Em Sooners

October 13th, 2017 · Tags: Cities · Sports

The Red River Shoot Out! What tradition!  Spectacle.  Pageantry. Spirt. Tailgates.  Obnoxity.* (*Not a word).  Have you been?  If not, picture deafening chaos with 90,000 screaming fans, many drunk, half in burnt orange and half in crimson.  Pretty easy to see where the lines are drawn in the bleachers.  May the best team win.
