Lunch at La Gumbo Ya Ya

A few months back I wrote about the food trucks in Washington DC I visited while I was there. I love the concept of food trucks. When I’m in Washington DC, it is so convenient to simply walk out the front door of our building and have 30 or more food trucks to choose from. […]

New Custom $2 Raspberry Pi Case

In a previous post I shared what the case my Raspberry Pi came with:

It’s big and dumb. The other day while shopping in Big Lots, I ran across the following item:

(To be honest, I’m not even sure what this thing is meant to do. It looks like it’s a thing that […]

Washington D.C. Food Trucks

Whenever I visit our nation’s capitol for work, I end up either at the mall area or in Navy yard. Shortly before 11am, both of these areas become packed with food trucks. I’m sure this happens in a few other areas as well.

People who live and work in the area probably take them […]

World Explorer Hot Sauces

The Christmas present I ended up with after this year’s bout of Dirty Santa was this collection of hot sauces. Containing “Flavors from Around the World,” the box contained the following seven bottles:

– Peruvian Garlic Sauce – East Asia Teriyaki – West Indies Cayenne – Pharaoh’s Revenge – South West Jalapeno – Jamaican […]

A Sugar-Free Two Thousand One Three

(Sorry. It’s the only way I could get it to rhyme.)

I can’t remember the last time someone gave me a New Year’s Resolution, but Susan has declared that in 2013, our house will be “sugar free”. It’s no secret that Susan and I have both struggled with our weight for years and years, and […]

Hard Rock Cafe

Saturday before the show, Susan, myself, Tim and Dawn met for a pre-show dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe. If you’ve not been to one, the Hard Rock Cafe is a chain of restaurants that combines lots of rock and roll memorabilia with good (but slightly overpriced) food. I’ve been to Hard Rock Cafes […]

Hash House A Go Go

Located in the Imperial Palace just off the Las Vegas strip is the Hash House A Go Go. According to the website there are seven locations nationwide, five of which are in Las Vegas. (The other two are in San Diego and Chicago.) The four of us (myself and Susan and our friends Tim and […]

Happy Birthday to Me!

Thirty-nine years old. Who would have ever thought.

My Mom baked every one of my birthday cakes that I can remember. Thirty years ago today, she made this one for me:

“Happy Birthday, Robbie.” (That’s me.) By the nine candles on the cake I can tell you this was in 1982. The action figure […]

Eating at Five Guys for Free (My Charmed Life) #FiveGuys #OKC

One night last week while Susan and Mason were in Washington DC, Morgan and I had dinner at Schlotzsky’s. While there, we noticed a sign for a brand new Five Guys Burgers just across the street. “We’ll have to go there with Mommy and Mason next week,” we said. Unbeknownst to us, Susan and Mason […]
