Yes it is that cold in Pittsburgh. Yes we had this same cold in Oak Creek when we lived there. The official rule for today is no walk outside. When we roam our back yard we are on a 5 minute. Even if we try to water the plastic lawn, it pretty much freezes as soon as it leaves us. Luckily we did have a nice much warmer walk around Highland Park the other day so our sniffers were able […]

As I have mentioned several times here, I much prefer to ride my bike on the lakefront to get my cardio workout – along with the exquisite pleasure of simply riding a bicycle – to anything I can do in the health club. Of course, as an adult, I realize that we don’t always get what we want when we want it. So when the weather doesn’t…
What do you train for? This has been one of my questions to all of the soccer players that I have coached. In the spirit of sharing best practices and trying to make competition fitter, stronger and more productive as Radiohead used to say, I figured I could start with the basics. For newbies the basics are starting out 2-3 times per week, just doing one set to exhaustion or for one minute using two count on extension and two […]
Somedays you make all the shots. Somedays you put everything in the water. The only think you can do either way is keep on trying. Take some time on the putting green, the pitching areas and the driving range to get better on the course. Now what do you do if you don’t even have the basic tools to become stronger, fitter, more productive in your game? This may just be the starting point for a little issue I came […]
Crosby really misses Elle at 9 pm! Since Elle left after Christmas, Crosby has started to whine for her 9pm cookie every night. Curse that Elle milk bone ritual. It’s not like she hasn’t been getting her daily walks and quality yummies with her meals, however the tumeric is not her fave. There is something magical about 45 degree days in January that allow for laying out on the deck and grilling on the grill for dinner. Let’s just say […]
On the first day of January we let our parents sleep in before demanding breakfast and a walk. We let them sleep to 0700 before Crosby did the trek up the steps to wakey-wakey. We are glad this year does not include a 15 hour New Year’s Day car ride. We do miss the sun and warm weather (anything more than 50 degrees F) that we had this time last year in Destin. We really miss the sunrise walks over […]
This is our first new year year’s in our house and as a married couple. We decided to try out one of our Christmas presents tonight. The air fryer is great and the penzeys’ spices on the chicken were delicious.
Reba and Crosby are very grateful dogs. They have a great house or maybe they should make it plural. They were happy with the river, Charleroi, A-wall, little Boston, Canal Winchester, Upper Arlington, Monongahela or Destin. As long as they had beds and belly rubs they were good to go, rolling with the punches in 2018. Something about the magical fibers emitted in the fur.
