Hello world! It has been gobs and wads of time since I checled in and posted. All is well, still fatter than I should be, but alive and well.

I’ve decided to return to the social media arena as I continue my quest to lose weight and achieve the fitness I deserve. However, I do not have the time, nor the interest, to maintain & participate in blogging as I had in 2010-12. Instead, I find the micro-blogging format of Twitter more suited to where I am at now,

I’ve missed all of you, and hope to connect with all of you on Twitter…



Super Bowl Prediction

Posted: February 3, 2013 in Miscellaneous


Super Bowl XLVII Prediction: Ravens 23, Niners 20

I see a close SuperBowl, super-close! In close games I will take a pocket passer over a running quarterback every time.

These teams are evenly matched, super-evenly! Vicious defenses, Rugged offenses, Brothers for coaches (who cares).

The game decision will be set up by the team which commits the last mistake, allowing the other team to kick a late game winning field goal.

Again, I will take a pocket passer over a running quarterback for the win.

And the cherry on top of my pick, the team with the better kicker is the RAVENS!

Oh, and should my game prediction be a bust, the leg of lamb I am roasting for the game will be a winner, that’s a prediction you can bet on!

Home Has Happened

Saturday was a day of travel home, but not before a final breakfast with good-friends…

My gorgeous Disney-addicted wife needed a dose of reality to calm her before the flight home, she chose a McRib to hit the spot…

And we are home, the ‘real’ Animal Kingdom…

A day to get the head back in the game before resuming everyday pleasures such as, gee, I forgot what to do. Hmm, maybe I should’ve stayed on vacation.

Finishing with Eeyore Style

Posted: January 11, 2013 in Miscellaneous

Early, 5:15 am early we’re in our corral for the Disney 5k, early doesn’t even fit when describing early on a vacation day…

Off and running, well, waddling is a more appropriate reference for my style…

How about this little girl, a stranger, encouraging my wife to carry on…

It worked, she made it to the finish line!

We both did, felt good. And as you can see I did it in eeyore-style!

It’s been a great vacation, but it is almost over. We get one last morning at the Magic Kingdom on Saturday and then it’s to the airport and homeward bound.

Have a great weekend!

Vacation & 5-What?

Her idea of a reason to go on vacation…

Oh look, they had a bib waiting for me…

Never seen so many protein bars in one place…

After getting checked in for tomorrows 5K I was thinking go find Eeyore, but she was thinking more shopping…

So yeah, our fun in the sun will include some sweaty moving bright and early Friday. So off to bed we go, good night 🙂

Hilarious Lil’ Swordsman

Back to the Magic Kingdom today…

This family was on the monorail with us. Their little guy was hilarious. Just before I took this he took his pirate sword and jabbed his sister and said, “You farted.” Which she promptly denied. He jabbed her again, “Its ok, I pee’d.”

Found some characters we hadn’t taken pics with…

As you can see we were at ‘It’s A Small World’ at 1:30 pm…

Vacation or not, the competition must be won!…

Hope everyone found something hilarious along the way today!

Drink and Beware

When you drink this…

You act like this…

And eventually you succumb to this…

Have a magical day!
