Okra in the Garden; Beautiful Flowers…

Many folks raise flowers for their beauty. And they most certainly are wondrously pretty! Not many flowers are edible, though; and even the ones that are don’t provide a lot of nutrition. So flower gardeners are involved in a particularly “pure” form of cultivation, for art’s sake (as it were).

Me, I like to eat what […]

Florida, Day 4 (Redux): An Evening In the Park and Dinner at Mythos

Tuesday afternoon was quite cloudy, and by the time we returned to the Islands of Adventure the air was quite a bit cooler. Bearable. Not cool, mind you, but not scorching. We parked and made the long trek to the Port of Entry, where we showed our tickets once again. It’s an easy process […]

Oh No, We're Stuck in Ireland!

This entry is part of a series, Ireland 2009»

Travel is such a pain, sometimes. We got up early and skipped breakfast, as we had a fairly early flight scheduled for our return to the States. (We didn’t want any breakfast, as we were afraid it would spoil our planned beef dinner on the […]

Mountain Passes and Racing Sheep: The Dingle Peninsula

This entry is part of a series, Ireland 2009»

We set out to conquer tour Dingle today, after stoking up on the usual breakfast goodies at the Maigue Restaurant. Dingle’s a pretty fair ride from Adare, but with good roads to Tralee we made great time at first. We took a short detour through […]

The Road Through Wicklow to Waterford

This entry is part of a series, Ireland 2009»

The road tour portion of the Great Irish Photo Safari and Pub Grub Rummage began this morning. John Carey, a professional limousine driver, tour guide and personal friend, met us at 0900 sharp with his Mercedes Benz all spiffed up and ready to go. We […]

Sláinte Mhath: Ireland Road Trip Coming Soon!

In a magical May in 2007, my lovely spouse traveled to Ireland to visit with me for a few days while I was toiling away “over there.” I was “stuck” there for a month, in the village of Adare, consulting my buns off for a multinational corporation. Tough work, when you can get it.

Anyways, […]

The Ten Most Important Things You Need to Learn

Borrowed From the Uncornered Market’s Banner

The Uncornered Market continues to amaze us here at the Underground. They talk food and capture their travels, but it’s a whole lot more than that.

They teach too. Philosophy, in fact. The practical kind. Useful.

If you haven’t visited them yet, please do so. Maybe you’ll find something to […]
