Best Writing Snack? I Think I’ve Found It…

A great writing effort is only sustained by great snacks. I read that somewhere, and it sounded so much like wisdom that I remembered it. (I think it was snacks. Pretty sure.) Fortunately, there are a lot of good ones out there. Elsewise we’d be running short of great fiction any day.

And if the […]

Doritos Situation Grave, and (Lust for) Alcohol Makes You Stupid

This entry is part of a series, Follies 2011»

Arch West led the Frito-Lay team that invented the Dorito (first sold in 1964), a snack that’s now sold worldwide with annual sales in the billions of dollars. This brand of chips has had its ups and downs, with sales falling so badly in recent […]

Friday Follies: Once I Saw These, I Didn’t Stand a Ghost of a Chance…

This entry is part of a series, Follies 2011»

Right after we were married I fixed our transportation problem by buying Paula Jo a minivan. It was an underpowered box, but it sure was cool to us back then! Our first day we took it out camping. Loaded up the gear and headed to […]

Spicy Crackers: Asian-Tasty Cream Crackers Recipe

This entry is part of a series, RdJ»

More than a year ago I introduced you to the spicy saltines craze. Since then I’ve mentioned a variation or two. They’re ridiculously easy to make, and even easier to make disappear. They go great with most any snack.

National Napping Day; My Favorite! Get the Snacks Out…

It’s amazing how a simple one-hour shift of the clock can cause so much disruption. I travel globally, and I almost never have […]

Tonight’s the Night, Tonight’s the Night! (Daylight Savings, That Is)

It’s been a long time coming. A whole year, in fact. It got here eventually, though. And tonight’s the night…

Daylight Savings begins officially at 2:00 AM overnight. That’s when we get to give up an hour of sleep by setting our clocks forward. Oh joy. It can cause anxiety, loss of appetite, and even […]

Got Modern Kids? Then Give Them the Ketchup They Crave

Kids these days. I’ll tell you. They are not only the same picky eaters that your parents accused you of being, they want stuff you never considered. Like spicy food. Thai, Vietnamese, Mexican, all with plenty of zing on the tongue. Even school lunchrooms are paying attention to the trends in spicy and zesty. […]

NaNoWriMo Update: My First Day of Keyboarding

The Muse bit me hard today. I bit back. While munching on crackers, cheese and dill pickle slices, amongst other tasty and nutritious snacks. (I’d list all the other brain foods I ate, but I’m not going to give you all my secrets without a lot of cash upfront this early.) I found some […]
