Protect the purity of iced tea!


I'm not one to turn down iced tea nor alcohol, but I'm not sure I can support this unholy miscegenation. Light beer + iced tea?!!

Coors, I drank you in Hawaii for some reason, but I cannot abide your attempt to pollute my tea. Beer is good. Iced tea is life. But, you gotta keep 'em separated.

Amercia the Beautiful by Mitt Romney


Nice work, Mitt. Your dedication and devotion to your native country Amercia is inspirational.

Me? I'll be voting for Obama and my country, America.

Check out the app in the Apple App Store before the Romney team can hire a copy editor!

I'm basically a professional hiker


I noticed this sign AFTER hiking down a steep cliff. No broken bones to report, but there were some amazing views.

Saint Todd X


People think I say mean things. If they knew how many things I filter out and don't say, I'd be sainted.

Why is there high fructose corn syrup in the tomatoes?! Or why I bought Pomi.


All I wanted/needed were tomatoes for my faux cassoulet. Finding canned wolf apples sans unnecessary ingredients is harder than one might imagine. Are you reading the ingredient labels on your canned goods? Do it. Prepare to be shocked.

I, luckily, was able to go to the organic/natural food section of Safeway and found canned tomatoes without the weird additives. I hope you're as fortunate. If not, please request it from your local supermarket.

Thank you, Pomi, for offering us tomatoes plain and simple. My cassoulet turned out just fine. And my pancreas thanks you.

Notes from the edge of the world: A Tree Grows in Hawai'i

I found this tree in a strange abandoned residential development (or undevelelopment as it were). It's odd to see how life flourishes on the Big Island. Here, at the edge of new earth, wedged in lava, life literally takes root. It's humbling and inspiring.

Aloha from the Big Island: Notes from the edge of the world

I hope you're all doing well. I'm currently nursing a bit of a sunburn while sitting on my lanai, drinking a beer, and listening to the waves crash. Life's tough. Okole maluna!
