Just Gimme the Fish!

Sometimes you don't want to be taught to fish, you just want the fish. Sometimes you really don't want to know how to do something yourself, you just want it done. So you ask someone who tries to give you a primer in the subject. No! I don't want to know. Just fix it. Just give me the fish so I can move on to what's really important to me.

In moments like these, even welfare-hating conservatives become handout-seeking liberals. It should teach us to be a little more gracious with each other.

Golf vs. Bowling

I don't have many rules for life. One is: keep your score in bowling above your score in golf.

Grilling Patio

Over the past weekend I layed out a small brick patio for us to use when grilling or smoking food outside.

All [new] materials purchased at the Home Depot. Total cost: about $140.

Notice the spiral brick design. I layed that out on Excel first, to get an accurate measurement and brick count.
