A First in the Olympic Trials

Jeneba withdraws from a tie break to qualify for the 100 meter race in London.

The race was a nail biter. One that ended with a question mark. Fortunately we have amazing cameras that capture what the human eye cannot. The days of irate John McEnroes ranting over human errors are almost obsolete.

You want to be moving. But you’re not. Stuck in the mud. Pressing against the wind. Melting into the quicksand. You work so hard and seem to be getting all the way to NOWHERE!

Burgers & Beer

Not your average bar and grill grub. An intro to my new Burgers & Beer series.

A Burger Fest

You don’t have to love meat to crave a great tasting burger. Veggie burgers are now mainstream. No more turned up noses by carnivores thinking “hippie burgers” with nothin’ but sprouts and wheat grass.

Unlike beef burgers, veggie burgers are patties with endless potential.  Some resemble beef while others stand out from the crowd with visible vegetables, grains and legumes.
