R.W. Ridley is popular

He gave me a shout-out for recommending Punch Brothers, sent a spike of traffic to my little corner of the world.

Looked sorta like this!

I guess I will have to get one of his books.


I Just Discovered

That Windows Live Writer marries to WordPress.  That is pretty cool.  We have a pretty light weekend ahead.  Stops for clothes shopping and a trip to the Verizon store.  House needs some work.

Tomorrow’s breakfast should be a hit.  Benton’s country ham and biscuits and Bailey buttermilk pancakes.

I am totally digging this cooler weather.  More please.  Now if I can just shake this nagging head cold.

I figured out that noone reads Friday night updates…I will probably do some in depth stuff on Sunday.

The next edition of the Travel To-dos is almost done.

I leave you with some Pappy!

Back in the Saddle

I have been a bit slow with blog posts for the last couple of weeks, I am hoping that this is the start of a regular update process.

I have a new laptop — an Inspiron 17.  So far I really like it, despite the enormous size.  We needed a more powerful computer around the house to handle video work and some multimedia stuff.  This was a nice choice.  I would have probably preferred a MacBook Pro 17…but it just didn’t make sense money-wise.

I start the new gig on Monday, so this week is pretty much sitting back and relaxing all week.  I did do some cleaning up on Monday, and I have some stuff on tap for Friday also, but other than that…it will be a laid back sort of week.

I also realized that I have not posted any pictures from Petit.

Some link love…
I will gladly admit to being a bit of an Orvis Whore, but I want this

Two writers from the Chicago Tribune are touring the south on a BBQ roadtrip.  They made a stop at Bridges in Shelby.  Their review is very nice.  I know that I have been critical of Georgia BBQ in the past…I think the following sentence from their review of Fox Brothers speaks volumes:

“Georgia is the center from which the South ripples outwards, but its barbecue scene is anemic. Between Maurice Bessinger’s in Columbia and Dreamland in Tuscaloosa, I’d struggle to name a BBQ powerhouse along the I-20 corridor.”

I am adding Fishpond to the Links section,  I am loving the Boulder briefcase that my daughter got me as a congrats on the new job gift.

Minka Kelly, Sexiexst woman alive?

A Bailey top 5 for sure!
Any discussion? I will second the motion....

Part 2 of the travel list will be on the way later in the week…expect more regular updates to ensue.
