    What are you EATING right now?

    Truffle and Bacon potato salad. Why isn’t all potato salad made this way?

    What are you Grilling now?

    We looked at those. The neighborhood party had 5 of those set up for pizza and it was awesome. I really want a huge pizza oven, mostly for the aesthetics, but wanted to try it out cheap on the BGE first before dumping 15-20k into a pizza oven.

    I am lazy, Trader Joe’s pizza dough with garlic and herbs. It was quite good.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Yeah the old mailbox was ridiculously low. I think around 30 inches from the ground. No idea why USPS allowed it. I should have just started from scratch wit a new post, but I decided to try to put a new facade on first to see how that turns out.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Took about three hours to refinish the existing weird old house mailbox with a modern model. Tried to use the existing post, though it was super crooked so I might end up ripping it all off anyway. Before After I absolutely suck at carpentry and have none of the right tools.

    HDTV Suggestions

    After living with one for a week, I would say the Sony OLED beats out the equivalent LG in every way but the operating system. Android is such a clunky piece of shit for a TV...or phone. 🙂 The weird speakers built into the A9F are excellent for TV speakers.

    A little searing action for the Costco ribeye caps.

    Not much as the grills were wrapped up just as it started pouring rain. Fucking Al Gore and his ManBearPig.

    Motorcycles

    I did a ton of research and a big consensus for first bike is one that has some tech, anti-lock breaks, maybe even traction control that is not expensive. The Suzuki SV-650 used is typically highly recommended for a largish starter bike. I see no reason to buy a mini bike, can’t see anything or be seen. While even Schott has gone more designer than motorcycle leather, I am not sure that Japanese designer fake motorcycle leather jackets are really all that useful on a bike. They are all just knock-offs of the Schott anyway. Certain Schott’s are great motorcycle jackets as are the Belstaff Pure Motorcycle line. Both designer but actually functional. Look at Saint jeans out of Australia, comfortable with much better protection than the blend of Kevlar some jeans are using these days. MSF is awesome training.

    Yes, the neighbors are kind of weird. He is an older guy in some kind of sales position that seems to have a lot of free time. I guess he either took a picture from his deck or went over to bug the workers daily for the whole build.
