Long Hiatus, Big Changes Coming

March 29, 2012


So, the photo gallery I’d linked to in early posts went down a few weeks ago, taking all of my embedded images with it. Fortunately, I’ve re-uploaded all of my old photos, as well as some new ones to a new picasa web album. Also, there is now an associated G+ account. I will fix […]

Long story short, I broke my left shoulder twice and separated my right shoulder once. Each time I broke my shoulder, I had […]

On Sunday, I hosted a small potluck party, Beast Feast: I supplied the main courses, about 8 pounds of Venison Steaks and 5 pounds of Kung Pao Pheasant. To cook the venison, I let the steaks warm […]
