    2021-06-17 Security Camera Saga Part 1: The Analysis 🧐✅✅✅

    A few days ago I posted a teaser that I was documenting my analysis of potential security cameras for our household and that it would be coming soon. And here it is!… Part 1: The Analysis.  In that post I called the exploration into options for security cameras a “dragon cave.” It’s like a rabbit […]

  • 2021-05-14 The Saltgrass Cheeseburger: 1.0 👎🏻

    2021-05-14 The Saltgrass Cheeseburger: 1.0 👎🏻

    This morning I was cleaning out the top shelf of my refrigerator which is typically a space reserved for leftovers. When I go out to eat I’m rarely able to consume the entire portion of whatever it is I’ve ordered. I also hate to waste food and often live off of leftovers. Many times I’ll […]

  • 2018-11-12 The Twisted Burger.. 3

    I think everybody knows by this point that you never hype something up when you recommend it to another person. OK, maybe not everyone, because I was told by a source I trust greatly that the burger at the Twisted Cork was “the best burger” they had ever had. That’s a pretty tall order. Being […]

  • 2018-06-07 The JS Cheeseburger 🍔- A Solid 3.75

    3.75 Out of 5. I’m going to try not to focus too much on the fact that my rating scale is flawed and needs some refinement and just roll with it. I had another JS burger experience last night and it’s the 4th or 5th time so it’s about time I broke down the facts […]

  • 2017-10-08 Five Guys Burgers and Fries.. 2.5

    How many guys does it take to make an above average cheeseburger? More than Five Guys apparently. 😛 Of all the burger joints in all the world, how did THIS one become a national chain? For starters, the atmosphere is “meh” at best, very fast-food-ish which I guess might be what they were going for […]

  • 2017-09-17 Austin: The P.Terry’s Cheeseburger.. 3

    Saturday morning we went to the soccer fields to watch Rebecca’s daughter play her very first soccer game ever. It was hot, and muggy, and the sun felt like it was burning our skin. And that was before it was even 11AM. When it was over, we decided to grab a quick bite to eat […]

  • 2017-07-29 It’s a Doozie.. 1.5

    Yesterday I had plans to take the kids to go have lunch with my Dad and his wife and they live across the river in Council Bluffs, Iowa. I let them pick the place and of course, they pick someplace in Council Bluffs because for some reason they rarely come across to this side of […]

  • 2017-07-23 The Mantra Cheeseburger.. 3.5

    There’s this restaurant on Maple street I’ve driven past dozens of times before. They have a tree out front that is artificial and lights up year round (not a Christmas tree). I’ve never looked up the name or thought to stop before to see what it was like, even though I have thought about it. […]

  • 2017-07-20: These are a Few of Our Favorite Things…

    On the plane ride home I asked my kids about our vacation with very specific questions. I think what you retain in your memories is solidified by recalling it several times, especially when it is fresh in your mind. I’m asking myself the same questions and will see how my answers stack up next to […]

  • 2017-07-13 Sand Dollar Sunset Cheeseburger.. 4.25

    I ended up booking a hotel in Rockaway Oregon because there were no rooms in Manzanita. Insert super sad face here but it’s good because I need to learn to branch out and try new things. I am now glad that I did because if it went differently I never would have experienced the Sand […]
