About Me

Originally from the midwest, my wife and I are living with her grandmother on the old family farmhouse in rural northwest Illinois. Not too far from the gentle rolling hills of Wisconsin and the Mississippi River palisades. It doesn’t get much more beautiful than this. We’re enjoying life but also facing getting older, trying to make a living, and wanting to fit in all of our dreams.

This blog will share my obsessions and eccentricities, help me learn from you, and maybe setmyselfup to enlist your help down the road. If  all goes well, it should be funny, snarky, eclectic, and aesthetic. Thanks and enjoy.

    • Awesome!!! Thank you for the nomination! I’m relieved to have an outlet to share a few thoughts and channel my obsessions. I suppose you could call that versatile:) I suppose, not counting myself one of the more dedicated blog trackers, I have to decline acceptance. I do, however, appreciate the good will. Cool, cool, cool. Thanks.

    • We actually bought it off craigslist. I think it had been originally purchased in Chicago and then they moved to Milwaukee. You can google: site:craigslist.org platform bed frame. That will return all the listing from the whole country and then go through those to find ones close to you.

  1. I read your blog post on the black mouthed cur you wanted to adopt but couldn’t because of your wive’s allergies. I recently adopted and dog that looks like he might be that breed. I have terrible lung allergies and itching from him, but am on medicine. Have you found any information on that breed causing allergies? Thank you!

  2. Hi –
    I’m working with a start-up for food bloggers in Louisiana called Tabelog (www.tabelog.us). They’re a subsidiary of the largest company in Japan Tabelog.com (similar to Yelp here in the US).
    We’re bringing their annual restaurant awards to the US that are judged solely by a panel of local food bloggers (all online). The winning restaurants get a framed 2015 award and the food bloggers get an ‘official judge’ icons/etc. and related PR for their blog. We’re looking for bloggers from the Louisiana area to invite as an official judge. Is this something that you would be interested in?
    Thanks in advance!
