Mrs PB buys a snack of various mixed nuts and chili flavored crunchy things called “sweet and salty chili mix...

    Obese

    Jeepers……so we stop into my favorite Mexican place to reward ourselves with a cup of pozole after our swim workout this morning. We get there right at 1100 when it opens so we’re seated already as the lunch crowd begins to wander in. I am stunned……not one……not one of the probably 20 people who...

    Endurance

    So…..I know and have read about Shackeltons Antarctic “exploration” but decided to listen to a new reading of Lansings 1959 book on audible. It’s read by Simon Prebble. Spectacular. Even though we all know the story and likely even if you’ve read Lansings book……..the reading brings a level of...

    David McCullough DTS

    Pulitzer Prize winning historian dead at 89. Read most of his books. Well researched and written in a very easy to read style. 89 is a pretty good run though…….I’d take it.

    Grandpa for 6th Time

    Just delivered. About 3 weeks early because Mom is pre-eclampsia. They waited as long as they could and took him just a few minutes ago. He is over 5lbs and really healthy. Mom doing well also. She had a very rugged pregnancy…..a real trooper. IVF baby. 😎👍

    Why Ships Crash

    Just watched Nova’s “Why Ships Crash” about the container ship that blocked the Suez last year. Really interesting. Worth a watch. IMHO

    Slab Leak

    I just want to go on record that whatever idiot thought burying all the plumbing in a house in the concrete slab...especially in California........was a frigging idiot. Don't let me catch him in a dark alley (although I'm not very dangerous anymore).

    Medical Technology

    So today I went for the 1 year since Myeloma diagnosis PET scan. (really good news, no evidence of malignant lesions) As I waited and then had the scan I was just stunned for some reason on the level of sophistication of todays medical technology. Injection of the tracer and take a nap in a...

    Golf Anarchy (it is a 4 letter word)

    I’ve been playing about 3 years now - with a not so brief health interruption - and there are numerous things that remain a complete mystery to me. On our round yesterday a often repeated mystery reared it’s ugly head. Why does my 7 wood ONLY go 190 when the water is 189 away?    Why?  :(

    Archery Anarchy

    Winter Olympics

    I hate figure skating. I get it. It’s very athletically demanding. It’s a truly difficult sport. No denigration of the demands or talent……but it’s SO BORING!!! So Mrs PB likes it. Now I’ll sit and read while she watches. That’s fine……she watches stuff she has a minimal interest in because I like...
