Easy Brisket

Easy Brisket

Although I’ve had my Big Green Egg for several years, I’d never tried to make a brisket. Go to an Egg-head site or a serious BBQer site and you’ll find elaborate recipes with equally elaborate techniques to produce a quality brisket. It was intimidating and I didn’t feel like I had the time or the […]

Louis C.K. has a bit in which he rants about our use of the English language. Specifically, he talks about the ways in which we misuse “top-shelf” words like hilarious, amazing, and genius.

Mac OS X Lion Login Loop

It’s probably a holdover from my Windows XP days but I tend to reboot my Mac every 3-4 days. Over the holiday I was working late and decided to reboot before I went to bed. All went as expected until I logged in. I entered my password and then hit the return key. The system […]

I’ll post this anyway because there is a slim possibility there are folks slightly more ignorant than me. So, if you’re a seasoned veteran of kamado cooking, I’ll […]

Kindle Touch Lighted Cover

Kindle Touch Lighted Cover

When I picked up the Kindle Touch last November, I also wanted a lighted cover. After checking out the reviews of the lighted cover for the Touch, I was reluctant to pick one up. One of the more common complaints was that the new cover lacked the closure strap and this was enough to keep […]

Touch Me, Babe

Touch Me, Babe

I’m already on record as an unabashed fan of the last generation of Kindle, as seen here. And more here. And here. Then Amazon had to go and announce the Kindle Touch. Sure, they also announced the Fire, but it just doesn’t seem to offer what I would like in a tablet…the screen size is […]
