Hermine's Gift of Rain a Bit Too Much in Some Places

Hurricane Hermine came ashore on the Mexican coast overnight, just south of Brownsville. Okay, maybe she was only a very strong Tropical Storm. She still packed a noticeable punch. Quite a bit of damage in extreme northeast Mexico. Then she turned her wrath on deep south Texas, traveling slowly to the north and raining […]

The Long, Short Road to Lunch in Kerrville

Short cuts make for long delays, a stature-challenged (and hairy-toed) individual, Peregrin by name, once opined. After his adventures he was an authority on the subject. I had to take his word for it, of course, up to today at least. All my shortcuts have always worked perfectly. No, really.

Tailgatin’ on a Tuesday

Finally the weather’s cold enough to think about football. If you’re a true football fan, you’re required you know how to prepare tailgating fare for you and all the lazy camp followers friends and family who come with you to the game to drink your beer and eat you out of house and home cheer […]

Instead, I’m going to cook up a bunch of spicy treats and zesty dishes and let the explosions and spectacular effects happen on the tongue.
