Whoa there babe! National Burger Day is coming up on Thursday, May 28th! But first, how was your Memorial Weekend? I spent Monday working, and reflecting on the life of my Father, who served in the Army as a part of the band. He was a trombonist, and while I didn’t get to hear him play too much, I did spend quite a bit of time with him at his shop repairing the organs and keyboards of the musicians of Las Vegas. Music was always a part of our lives, and I was pretty excited when I got to repair Englebert Humperdinck’s keyboard one summer. I was not only touching, but FIXING the instrument of a famous person!
Hey you! I’ve got another video for you, and I’m super stoked! I hope you enjoy it – we’re making bloody mary’s fit for metal kings! I present to you the Raining Bloody Mary – an ode to one of the most influential metal bands of all time, SLAYER!
Faith No More. Boy did they put my mother through some weird and crazy adolescent years. I had to be around 12 or 13 when they started to play Epic on MTV, and the rest was history as one of my top 5 metal bands. Sooo much controversy over that flopping fish at the end!
It’s not often that one gets to visit an avocado ranch, and just a few weeks ago I did, along with my friends in the Inland Empire Food Bloggers!

I’ve got to admit, that I am definitely one of them. They’re one of the perfect foods on the planet! Technically a fruit, it contains the most fat of all vegetables and fruits, and it’s fat purity is un-rivaled. The plant fat is digested very efficiently, and the combination of good fats and fibers can help control blood sugar levels and can also help curb cravings for foods that contain lots of refined sugar. Winning!
Motherhood. It’s a virtuous task that entails endless nurturing and sacrifice so that children may have a long, healthy, informed, and fruitful life. It is a task that we honor every year by showing mothers how much we love and appreciate them. Laid before you are 8 rockin’ ways you can do just that! These are things that I know my Mother would really, really appreciate. I’ve also done my homework, and have spoken to many friends and family members who are moms to get their input on the matter too! The consensus seems to move towards quality time, pampering, and relaxation rather than huge elaborate gifts. With this holiday, it’s the thought that counts, so without further ado, here are some ways you can honor the most special lady in your life! (more…)
