Lexington Visit 2015 – Day 2

Lexington Visit 2015 – Day 2

Day 2 in Kentucky meant going out for a drive at dawn to see what I could find… And what I found was frost on the windshield! It was about 35 degrees! I left the Ruin Bed & Breakfast just for a quick look around the area.   The area is just gorgeous. Woodford County is ... Read More »

Lexington Visit 2015 – Day 1

Lexington Visit 2015 – Day 1

We’ve made it a tradition to spend a weekend in Kentucky every October. The timing is based on Keeneland’s fall meet. I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone say they don’t like Keeneland. It’s Kentucky’s slightly lesser known horse track, but, in my opinion, it’s definitely the best track and setting combination I’ve seen. It’s ... Read More »

San Diego 2015 – Part B

San Diego 2015 – Part 1 was just the weekend after we got to San Diego. Part B is about the week… The first weekend of June was really great. The weather was perfect, even at dawn. Instead of clouds, we had clear skies, and everything was gorgeous! Monday, however, changed that a bit. It ... Read More »

San Diego 2015 Part 1

San Diego 2015 Part 1

From late April through mid-June, I did a bit of travel here and there. It was mostly not work related, but the last trip was to a conference in San Diego. I’ve been to the same hotel 2 other times, and I’ve learned that June is typically filled with grey mornings that turn into sunny, ... Read More »

Back To Atlanta

Back To Atlanta

My dad just turned, well, an age older than he’s been before, so my wife and I headed to Atlanta for a long weekend to spend some time celebrating his birthday. We’ve only been in Atlanta once in the last 5 years, and that was a very quick trip for my sister’s birthday, so we ... Read More »

Buffalo Trace Distillery Tour

Buffalo Trace Distillery Tour

I want to be clear that I still believe that Scotch whisky is the greatest things on the planet. However, Scotland is far away, and bourbon isn’t! At the same time, there’s some pretty good bourbon, too. While Scotch has a really wide band of possible flavors, the corn requirement in bourbon means that the ... Read More »

San Diego Food and Photos

San Diego Food and Photos

San Diego is about as far away from home as I can get and still be on the mainland of the US. Where we have trees and creeks and lakes, they have no so many trees, desert, beach and lots o’ salt water. The brings surfers and the southern California boardwalk we’ve all seen in ... Read More »

Vegas, Grand Canyon and Char-Broil All-Stars

Its not been a quiet month in Ohio. (That’s my bow to one of my favorite radio segments, News From Lake Wobegon, for those that didn’t get it). And I’ve got LOTS of photos to share from the month! May came in strong with a trip to Las Vegas! This year’s annual Char-Broil All-Stars met ... Read More »

A Culinary Ode To The South

A Culinary Ode To The South

After getting back from our recent trip to the South, I had really wanted to try to keep the spirit of our vacation going. As long as I can. No matter how hard it can be. To do this, I decided to use my stomach. Or maybe I should say my tastebuds. Yeah, that sounds ... Read More »

Humbled In Serenbe

About a year ago, I was contacted by Barry Martin on behalf of Char-Broil. I know Barry has been associated with them for some time, and I’ve seen his work online and in books (I even have a few of y recipes in one of the books he’s done , America Grills! By Char-Broil). Barry ... Read More »

Intro to Ann Arbor Food

Over the weekend, we took a trip to Michigan and found that Ann Arbor is quite a food town. I wouldn’t have guessed it, but the town is full of great food experiences. It started with a great pub that had one of the best selections of not just beers from microbreweries, but they had ... Read More »
