What does one hope for the day before Pittsburgh’s 2020 Cupids Undie Run? A morning full of Snow? A last training run to make sure everything moves with grace on run day? An easy packet pick-up experience for the team on the North Side? A snowy, smelly dog walk for Crosby? Last second push for a few donations. Last chance for anybody to join us tomorrow. I’m looking for a little help in picking out this years undies from the […]
In this world where food is not always safe we figured it would be good to share some brunch ideas for after the Pittsburgh run. . . in planning for Riley’s River Rats big run on February 8, we were thinking of a post run snack.

Let us know if you need more information or […]
OK the project list keeps growing and it appears I’m either feeling my age, Pittsburgh winter, or just a little run down. . . .Well I guess an ALL of the ABOVE option is possible. What do you do? Here’s my current approach, thanks to that discussion about that Covey approach to the 7 Habits. Regroup, recover and let the mind and body rest, instead of diving into the next project. Regarding projects, property, and finding a good time to […]

Sometimes it’s good to reflect. Sometimes it’s good to dive in and refresh. We were sitting around and discussed a few ways to brighten up a wall in our house and this little project of water that we know, would be a great addition to a certain wall. The following is a workspace for the framed project. It represents, Quintana Roo, Highland Park, East Brady, Destin, Milwaukee, and West Virginia.
In the spirit of cleaning up my drafts this was started in the winter of 2019, shortly after realizing Reba was struggling physically. She was our rock for the past few years with her little eyes waking me up every morning before the sun would come up. Every time I log on in the morning I see those eyes looking back at me. In going to the river since Reba has passed it’s not quite the same without being pulled […]
We have a bunny and little birds. It’s really awesome to see them enjoying the growth through our plastic backyard. The ways the birds and rabbit coexist is really a sweet site, if only they knew how dangerous Crosby can make the back yard. The funny thing is now that we are not trying to grow grass we are actually doing a better job of growing it that we did the last time on 5th Street. Here’s a few little […]
After finishing the morning dog walk/SUP I was greeted by a text asking what would you recommend for a home exercise bike? Funny question since we recently made that decision. Since I’m a big Tim Ferriss listener and a former spin class junkie, I do tend to find instructor driven stationary biking to be much better for my mind and HIIT than the standard Precor, Lifefitness, Matrix recumbent or upright bike. I still bust out my old as it likely […]
Uncle Tom came to Pittsburgh and we made it out to golf before the storms rolled in this afternoon. For the record Sir Thomas did birdie number 17. About number 5: Drive it down the middle then cut your second shot down on the right hillside. Don’t be afraid of the slope to the stream. And regarding somebody’s birthday who coincides with Avery’s gotcha day. Happy Gotcha day Avery.
OK so the 2010 Focus was given an early death thanks to a distracted driver on the Highland Park Bridge. The lats, delts and AC joint have had lots of fun since then thanks to the speed of the collision. Life has been full of fun, so we’ve put car shopping on hold. Step one is research. Since Ford is moving away from the silver Focus model, it may be time to thing outside of the blue oval. Thanks to […]
