Your Zero Calorie Food?

A friend of mine says that if he could eat any food that wouldn't count towards his calories or anything, it'd be Oreos. Regular old Oreos, not the double-stuff or the peanut butter ones or anything crazy - just regular Oreos, zero calories, and he'd eat them all day. As a bit of a gag […]

Cherry Coke Zero

It's not as bad as you'd expect. The "diet aftertaste" still exists but it's not as strong. Perhaps it's masked by the cherry flavor - I highly doubt Coke Zero tastes quite as good. Am I alone in that - liking the Zero variant of some Coke more than the Diet version? Regular (all the […]

Teaching in the Open

This relates to a conversation I've had with Dave Wedzik a few times now, and we both agree and always reach the same conclusion. In the winter, Dave's been forced to teach at the Golf Dome here in Erie, PA. I've watched a few of his lessons, and I've seen a few lessons given by […]

Redeyes and Zzzzzzzzzz

Dave's voice is gone. He can barely whisper. His sinuses have been dripping into his throat for days now and it's not good. At least he's not actually sick. Our 1:30am flight left on time. So did the other flights. I managed to grab about 2½ hours of sleep on the first leg of the […]

Friday in Scottsdale

We're taking the redeye later tonight (1:30am) so we're staying up late. I'm writing this from a Barnes & Noble near Kierland in Scottsdale. I picked up a copy of The Three Pillars of Zen: Teaching, Practice, and Enlightenment thanks to a comment on this post. Thanks Brad (or Brad's friend). Today was a bit […]

Flying to Scottsdale, AZ

I'm typing this on a plane 1:30-ish flight out of Erie (it was only about $10 more than a flight out of Buffalo) to Detroit. When I land, I'll have an hour or so to catch a flight to Scottsdale, AZ. I'm heading to Scottsdale with Dave Wedzik to photograph and observe a Stack and […]

Any Good Recipes?

Anyone got any good recipes? Easy to make? I'm a meat and potatoes type of guy - don't like a lot of vegetables (except as seasoning, or "plate veggies" like corn, green beans, peas, etc.) and I'm not a huge fan of sauces. We've been eating at home a lot more lately, so if you've […]

End of Days

Who in the heck believes in the End of Days? You have to be a fundamentalist Christian to believe that, don't you? Or do other religions really talk about it quite a bit. 2012 is said to be the "End of Days" in the Mayan calendar, or something like that, and they weren't Christians, but […]


How much do you use Facebook? A lot A little Never View Results FWIW, I chose "a little" because I rarely post, though I check the home page and two other pages (both golf-related) several times per day. Quickly. I don't use any real applications and I typically hide everything I can, like gifts and […]

Here's the route my copy of Aperture 3 has (and perhaps will) take. It's unlikely given the times that any of this was flight: View Larger Map 2/9/2010 10:35 PM - Jonestown, PA (PICK UP) 2/9/2010 10:46 PM - Rutherford, NJ (ARRIVAL ORIGIN DHL GLOBAL MAIL FACILITY) 2/10/2010 12:00 AM - Rutherford, NJ (PROCESSED) 2/10/2010 […]

TV News Parody

It's truly horrifying how accurate this is.

Barocky Road

From a friend: In honor of the 44th President of the United States, Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream has introduced a new flavor: "Barocky Road." Barocky Road is a blend of half vanilla, half chocolate, and is surrounded by nuts and flakes. The vanilla portion of the mix is not openly advertised and usually denied as an […]

It's always embarrassing when something like this shows up on such a main-stream site, isn't it? I've gotta remember to check out the CBS site on Friday to watch this CSI because some golfers make cameos and my two DVRs are recording too many things at 9:00, so I won't be able to record it. […]


In Taco Bell the other day I saw a sign about how a woman had lost 55 pounds or something over the span of two years by - if you failed to read the smaller print - eating at Taco Bell for lunch. I forget the name of the low-fat or low-calorie foods Taco Bell […]

So a few months ago I ran out of the Mexican Coke some people kindly mailed to me. It was great, and I saved it for special occasions. I drank it a little faster towards the end since it was just starting to get flat, but the 36 (I think) bottles I received were yum […]
