YouTube Cleanup: White Water Rafting in Colorado 2008

In 2008 I took a business trip to Colorado.  While there, I extended my stay and flew Shannon up to check out the local area.  We did the usual: Man v. Food locations, downtown attractions, etc.  One of the greatest things we did there?  White water rafting. (Here’s my original...

YouTube Cleanup: #SouthPark’s Casa Bonita in Colorado 2008

In 2003 South Park aired an episode named “Casa Bonita” about a Colorado area restaurant of the same name.  The place was presented as a somewhat over the top Mexican themed Chuck E. Cheese sort of establishment featuring cliff divers and fire jugglers. In 2008, I took a business trip...

Good morning 2012. Here’s my AWESOME life so far. #NewYearsDay

While watching the ball drop in Times Square last night, I got to thinking about the time Shannon and I went to see that happen in person years ago.  This got me thinking about the remarkable life I’ve somehow lead over the past [insert obscure number to make my age...

My wife’s @HardRock Cafe Teddy Bear collection (with pics!)

Last Monday I wrote a post about the spoils from my travels over the past few years: my Starbucks mug collection.  Today, though, is the collection in our house over ten years in the making… Shannon’s Hard Rock Cafe Teddy Bear collection. Atlanta, Georgia Atlantic City, New Jersey Baltimore, Maryland Biloxi,...

Flickr Friday: South Park wasn’t lying – the place is REAL.

Been there.  Done that.  Saw the cliff divers and Black Bart’s cave. I occasionally update new photos (and old ones that I scan) on my Flickr account.  Each Friday I post one on my blog from my collection that I think is not just fat, but also big boned. You can...

Flickr Friday: Colorado ChooChoo from the Arkansas River

I took this while white water rafting on the Arkansas River. I occasionally update new photos (and old ones that I scan) on my Flickr account.  Each Friday I post one on my blog from my collection that I think is kind of eye catching. You can see the complete...

Flickr Friday: Can you say “Burrito”?

The look on that kid’s face at the other table is priceless. His mom asked to take picture of it, too. I occasionally update new photos (and old ones that I scan) on my Flickr account.  In doing so, I get to revisit a lot of photos I’ve taken while...

My Boring Ass Life Last Year: 2010 In Review

Ate a giant burger at The Vortex in Atlanta, Georgia.  This was the beginning of my Man v. Food pilgrimage that would take me to eight different restaurants! Saw snow again for the first time in years. Blogged about bad service and got the attention of Ford Motor Company. Showed...

Flickr Friday: Meanwhile, 14,130 feet above sea level…

Did you know Mount Evans has the highest (above sea level) paved road in the United States? In short: we drove most of the way. I occasionally update new photos (and old ones that I scan) on my Flickr account.  In doing so, I get to revisit a lot of...

Beast Wars may suck, but Dinosaur Ridge DIDN’T! 0

Beast Wars may suck, but Dinosaur Ridge DIDN’T!

This post has nothing to do with Transformers, but throwing in a Beast Wars title after last week’s hubbub was too easy to pass up. My father-in-law LOVES dinosaurs.  The man’s home office contains books, statues and toys of all kinds of dinosaurs; some of them older than me.  That...

Mount Evans, Colorado aka “OMG THERE’S SNOW!!!” 2

Mount Evans, Colorado aka “OMG THERE’S SNOW!!!”

On the suggestion of a friend in the Colorado office where I was working, Shannon and I took the afternoon last Friday and drove out to Mount Evans, Colorado.  According to Wikipedia (and a number of t-shirts at a gift shop on the way) Mount Evans sports the highest paved road...

The Buckhorn Exchange in Denver, Colorado…

We now return you to our regularly scheduled program! Thus far, I have eaten in two Man v. Food recommended restaurants: The Jack-N-Grill and The Vortex.  Both offered LARGE servings of some fun food… but neither offered menu choices as odd and unique as the third eatery I’ve now been...

The Jack-N-Grill in Denver, Colorado…

As reported earlier, I spent last week in Colorado for business.  The weekend, though, was spent with my wife seeing the sights and having fun with some of the local attractions.  It has been mentioned before (and bears repeating) that I and a number of my friends are a fans...

The Ballad of #BotCon continues…

I got back from Colorado late last night, and I’ve been swamped with getting things together for about a dozen projects.  Plus, I have a bunch of great photos to post and (to top it all off) the A/C is broken in the house.  True story.  It died while we...
