Man About DC

Well It’s been a while, and for that I am sorry.  Casey Neistat has encouraged me to get back to blogging.  It’s better to do something that isn’t perfect than to do nothing at he said in a fantastic interview with another motivating figure Tim Ferris. Well guess what I’m temporarily the Man About DC.  […]

One Time Beekeeping in NYC

So there was the one time I found myself standing in the sculpture garden holding beekeeping equipment at the Museum Of Modern Art in New York City.  First things first, you need to say MOMA because that’s how most people refer to it and it makes you sound extra cool.  Side note, The Metropolitan Museum […]

I’m No Hero

It’s currently MN cold -2˚ and I’m high atop Beech Mountain in North Carolina for the 34th Disabled Sorts USA SPARC Learn to Ski Clinic.  My good friend Edee, who has spina bifida, has got me volunteering here for the second year in a row.  It’s great time where people with disabilities can come learn […]

Market Square shines in the winter.

Winter Weekend

It was another weekend of getting out in Knoxville.  It started with me being a bar floozie for an fundraiser for Positively Living.  It was a casino themed party and naturally I wore my tux.    I had to sell chips that could be donated to different services and take general donations.  I also got […]

Nashville In a Day

I was asked if I could take some headshots in Nashville, so I thought I’d take my assistant/faux daughter for the day to see what we could come across.  I started with trusty Facebook to ask friends what they recommend.  Fifteen responses and all related to food.  I even made another request for non-food-related items.  […]

Me and the Knoxville's Wonderwoman.  If we get married the cake will be made of bacon.

Heartbroken Over Holly’s

I got a text from a friend of mine the other day that said “I saw Holly’s 135 was closing.”  I honestly didn’t believe them, and looked into it myself.  I was stunned, since it is by far one of my favorite restaurants in Knoxville, and conveniently located across the street from me.  Then the shock […]

Backpacking GSMNP

  I finally went backpacking in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.  Yes that is spelled correctly, get over it.  It was the mountains brought me to Tennessee, and it is always nice to get out for a hike. There were parts that remind me of my hit post about my hike in the Grand Canyon, […]

Me and the kids with Santa

Christmas at the Opry

I’m a firm believer in setting expectations whether it be in relationships, professional environment, and the blogosphere.  I’m very sorry and ashamed I used the word blogosphere. You really should expect better of me. Anyway, I went to the Opry Christmas show Sunday night.  Not the Grand Ole Opry, but the Smoky Mountain Opry.  So I’ve now established […]

Serving Those Who Serve… With Beer

Well, it’s the holiday season and volunteering should be something we all do – if not consistently, at least take this time of year to give back to your community.  For my part, I got a group of friends together to go give support to the Red Cross program, Holiday Mail for Heroes.  Let me just […]

YOUNGSTOWN, Better Than You Might Think

Y-Town has a little bit of a bad rep especially if you consult the Urban Dictionary’s definition, After helping the U.S. military conquer the Nazis, the city turned its attention to mafia car-bombings (known as a Youngstown tune-up). But other than the shady past, it can still be enjoyable.  Staying with friends was lovely in itself, but […]
