It struck like lightning, hurt like hell and would not go away. Plantar Fasciitis, it is not your friend. I tried a podiatrist. He doctored up my insoles and created an arch padded ankle sleeve to isolate and immobilize the arch. This helped reduce […]
Had a little updating to do for my 2014 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye – air the tires, check the oil and of course update the firmware. In this case updating the radio for improved performance and new features. It’s pretty easy – if you’re […]
I don’t pretend I know how to play, but I do have fun. We hang, we drink, we play. Songs are live improv, lyrics are developed on the fly, jamming is long, sometimes magic happens, sometimes not. The Flying EP – All flight videos are for The […]

This is my house – Nokia 1020 Windows Phone, iPhone 5, Moto X Android whatever version. The Moto-X is badass, Windows 8 on Nokia kinda cool and iPhone is awesome as always (but getting boring?!).

Eddie Pepitone before going on stage at the Lincoln Lodge – “I hope I’m funny”. Oh he was,very. The Lincoln Lodge (Lincoln Restaurant) what an interestingly strange place to see a show. The nations longest running independent comedy club at 14yrs was in the back […]

WILL VARNER ART – Surveillance 2010.
Do you every buy or bake good bread, and then eat it all at once? I picked up two loaves today – one Semolina and the other Tuscan. Looks good, smells good, just know it’s gonna taste good. Expensive. Then we eat it almost […]
It was a sad day in Fisk family history today. Yes it’s true we retired the Frostline Kit hockey bag after 33 years of active & semi-active service. Frostline? My brother being a madman of sorts had decided for some reason to begin sewing […]
It’s 11:15pm. I stand in front of the kitchen sink drinking a pre-recovery break (also know as short periods of sleep) glass of water after (yet another) 15 hour day at the office. I sigh lightly releasing a part of the day and run […]
Bacon and Cheese. Involves Weaving Bacon, how can you loose! http://foodproof.com/photos/full/bacon-cheese-roll-1290
Our last hockey net was of the $49 PVC variety. The net did itself proud for 4 years until we laid a small ice rink in the backyard and the kids performed an experiment destined for failure – real pucks, 12f temps and… cheap […]
An advertisement on the front page of a newspaper, the Chicago Tribune no less…
How does Intelligent design prove Global Warming? It goes like this. I bought a POS MTD Yardmaster Riding Mower, it was built by pre-teens in some Asia minor country for sure, but designed by humans none the less and designed by humans equals Intelligent […]
I was indoctrinated into thee land of non crappy mass consumption beer during my college days at a certain Midwest university. Around 1986 or so we were one of only two towns in the nation stocking Samuel Smiths on the shelf and with Sunday […]
Our three teenage boys Jacob, Adam and Ezra (no it was not a religious mission) passed through O’Hare International airport security at 2:20am on their way to three weeks in Guatemala. Two weeks to the day later we found ourselves passing through O’hare security […]
In one of my past careers I used to fly in helicopters fairly often to do architectural photography. I was an assistant to an excellent boss who had learned his trade in the military shooting images for maps in Alaska. We flew out of […]
IU vs UI today. Will Illinois play the revenge card again? I think not. The Sampson era so far has been marked by a much more focused team. Playing hard on all plays and with awareness. An amazing lack of “what the hell are […]
One day away from SuperBowl XLI – Will Rex rock and Peyton plop. Or will the Colt of destiny come shinning through? I think DA Bears will run it. Their D will just barely hold on and Devin Hestor will hit the score that […]
Just when I think there’s nothing special about where I live… Our nice house in the suburbs lulls one into a false sense of blah. Big box grocery, shiny chain gas stations, drive here, drive there, no where in particular. Then you remember that […]
