It’s National Coffee Day, and We’re All Thankful

It’s Monday morning, and it’s National Coffee Day (and, in a fateful alignment of the stars, International Coffee Day). The latter fact makes the former one bearable, maybe even pleasant.

Check around, lots of places will have free coffee today. Get it while you can! Few things beat free caffeine.

I always have half a cup first […]

Father’s Day Follies: Feed the Need for Bacon

Ahh, bacon. Something that makes (nearly all) fathers smile, then drool with anticipation. This weekend has Father’s Day as an excuse to give all of us fathers the lavish gives we crave celebration as the major excitement available, unless you’re entered in the Lake Pflugerville Triathlon. So how about combining the two: Bacon and Father’s […]

Bring Out the Cheesy Stuff: It’s National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day

For a quick meal, there’s not much better than a hot, viscous grilled cheese sandwich. At least in my book. And today’s the day to celebrate that great American invention! (I’m claiming it for the home team because I can’t find references anywhere in Google to this morsel’s origination.) (Correction: Here’s a reference, and yes, […]

Happy New Year! Let’s Make 2013 Special…

Here’s a great way to start the New Year: Visiting relatives-to-be and messing up their kitchen before going home…

We trekked off to Florida over the weekend, to be with Kai’s family in sunny Florida. We arrived on Sunday, then picked Jess and Kai up in Tampa the next afternoon. No sooner had we gotten over […]

Another Year Goes By…

Drag out the hurdy-gurdy and the ukuleles, the cowbells and the bagpipes! Pass around the RC and the Moon Pies! Time for an old-fashioned party…

In all the hubbub the past month I almost missed it: It’s the anniversary of the Chile Underground! Again!

And to top it all off, this one’s extra-special. It’s the 5th anniversary […]

New Year’s Eve: Let’s Party!

It’s almost time! Time to ring out the old and ring in the new. To Drop the Ball. (Not THAT ball, the one in Time’s Square, silly.) To party like there’s a great tomorrow ahead.

Here at Clan Central we’ll not be doing any heavy-duty partying; more like dominoes and punch until it’s really late. Say […]

Merry Christmas!

The morning dawned bright and beautiful, cold and crisp. Santa’s Elves (the ones who hang at the Underground most of the year) had laid out the stockings and stuffed them chock-full of goodies. Candy, nuts, and more. I got a Space Shuttle to build (Nanoblock model). Paula Jo got several Italian-style sodas, a favorite vice […]

Wedding Anniversary Under Way; “What Happens Elsewhere…”

Doesn’t come into the Underground, is the only way I can finish that sentence. I’d give you all the juicy details, but why double-publish? Of course the Irrational National Enquirer has already purchased the rights. You can find the details right next to the latest installment of the Kardashian fubar saga. Or is it […]
