My friend Chris says on his blog that post that are only links to other content are not creative. Bah! I say. I do it all the time at my other blog. Fine, they may not be creative, but I feel I am providing a valuable resource to my readers.

So here goes...

My friend Dan is doing a bike trip through Canada at this very moment. He is documenting his trip on his blog. It seems like he's having a hard time updating it as the computer situation is spotty at the hostels he is staying at. I simply ask you to go to his blog and post a comment of encouragement. Oh, and forgive his spelling, it's worse than mine.

(Oh, and I know I owe you all a post about Starved Rock II: The Return of the Cows, but I've been busy going on job interviews)

No, Blog This!

I'm not sure what that means. One of these days I'm going to push that button to see what happens, but right now I'm on Lunch at work hoping to crank out several blogs in a one hour period.

Today's topic: too random to guess...

I've been scolded for not updating this blog in favor of my other blog. You know, the one about Painting Thousand Sons. The problem is that updating my other blog is much easier than this one. If I paint some miniatures or play some games, I can just write about that. This general, random blog is more creative and more of a challenge.

Oh, gosh, am I blogging about blogging again? I'll stop.


I usually pack my lunch everyday to work since buy lunch everyday gets expensive. When I do have to buy lunch (either because there was nothing in the house or I forgot it) I try to go cheap. One of my cheapest options is Mr. Sub. I can buy a king size sandwich, and it can last two days. Seriously, this is no wimpy Subway 12 inch. This is a full 18 inches of sub goodness.

One of my subtle joys in life is the times I go into Mr. Sub and get to say to the the cashier, "King Cheese." That's all that needs to be said: they're just that efficient. It gets even better when my sandwich comes up, the cashier just yells to the lunch crowd, "King Cheese!" and I get to yell back, "King Cheese, that's me."


Who's addicted to Wikipedia? I am. Here's an article on an Polish Air Force Squadron that fought in North Africa during WWII.


Two weeks ago, Clare and I once again hit the I&M Canal Trail from Joliet to Starve Rock State Park. It was great, and I'm going to tell you all about it. I just want to wait until I have all the pictures. At the moment, half are at home, and half are still in the camera (i.e. I haven't developed them yet.) In the mean time, here are some photos from our bike trip in Doolin, Ireland:

Nothing says Ireland like jam! Mmmmm Jammmmm...

Heh, you know what I'm sayin'?


In case anyone was wondering, I had a fantastic Father's day, thank you.


OK, Next time less rambling and more about Starved Rock II: The Revenge. Highlights include blue herons, broken spokes, diseased snapping turtles, a broken freewheel, and a fox.

I don't have much to add to this picture besides it's one of my favorites from Ireland. That and I got tired of looking at that goofy picture of my brother.

More soon I promise!
