Going Bananas!

My recent culinary obsession has been fixated on healthier alternative ingredients such as applesauce for sugar and garbanzo beans for…well, pretty much anything. I confess: Pintrest has been the pinnacle of my online searches, as of late and I seem to find the most interesting recipes, tips and photos…sorry, Google. ­čÖé It’s that time of…

Patrolling the Dawn

Let’s get one thing straight: I am not a morning person. I never have been and never will be. You know that classical music song by Rossini? Of course ya do! Well, as beautiful as the song is, it will never be taken seriously by myself. <Insert savvy pun about men my age here> I…

Be Nice, Wedge

Wedge always makes for some glorious wipeouts and plenty of jaw dropping fun.

With every epic media update, my stomach twinged, my jaw dropped and…

This is not the case…just big, not-so-gnarly walls of water mowing over some brave weekend warriors at Trestles last weekend. ┬áI just happen to have my camera, albeit not the right lens,…

Just a Quickie to Mexico

South-bound feels so good to hashtag…post…Tweet…or vocalize…whatever your communication fancy, tell it to the world, be stoked and unplug, if only for a day. A┬ácouple of friends and I crossed the U.S./Mexico border for a couple of days and had the time of our lives, san distractions. Some times it is SO necessary to shut…
