So normally we have Monday off — but today Yeni and I packed up the truck with some cakes and headed to Lake County for a delivery. On the way back to Gainesville, we stopped off at the Wing Stop in Ocala. The Wing Stop is a Hooters knock-off with very good wings. Wings so… Continue reading Let's see how this goes…
So, the Mrs. and I (and her parents) enjoyed a very well cooked dinner at a local (and independent) restaurant here in town. The food was excellent; this is easily one of the best restaurants in town. I enjoyed a drink (just one — I was driving), Yeni enjoyed a drink. Both were top notch.… Continue reading The Tipping Conundrum
I’ve blogged about my weight — often. Being married to a wonderfully beautiful (and petite) woman, I constantly feel heavy. Of course, this isn’t her fault. After all, it’s not my jacket that makes me look fat. It’s my fault. Let’s face it, I’m fat. There’s a thousand reasons and theories behind my stature. I’ve heard… Continue reading One bite at a time.
Saturday, Yeni and I will be celebrating our first wedding Anniversary. Of course, we could think of no better place to go than Disney World — after all, we go there quite a bit (Florida Annual Pass has it’s privileges). Anyway… Yeni’s always been fascinated by these beautiful cakes that have become popular. She watches Food Network non-stop… Continue reading And There Will be Cake!
My wife has been baking like a woman possessed… and let me tell you. These cakes taste even better than they look.

Increased weight gain with High Fructose Corn Syrup versus Sugar. Calorie intake… Continue reading High Fructose Corn Syrup is Worse Than Sugar
Lately, thanks to our newly purchased Kitchen-Aid mixer, I have been eating well — very well. Although I guess that depends on your definition of what “eating well” means. If it means eating low calorie, very healthy meals, then no. If it means eating delicious cakes and desserts that make your mouth water, then YES… Continue reading Lately, I get to eat well. Very Well.
Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends 🙂 And in no random order… qxork.com So, you ever give out an email address and the person questions the spelling, asks you to repeat the work, or just in someway makes it a non-pleasurable experience? Of course you have… Well, after explaining that it… Continue reading qxork, Fred Posner, and the INS
Ah… getting older. I’ve noticed that as I have aged, the hair line recedes and the gut expands. Not truly the look I dreamed about as I pictured myself approaching forty, but the look I’ve achieved nonetheless. Speaking of forty… Jimmy Buffett’s “A Pirate Looks at Forty” remains one of my all time favorite songs.… Continue reading This time, it's for real
So I’m flying the trip from Hell this weekend to visit my cousins in Eugene, OR. Will be great to see them, and to get there I will fly from Gainesville to Charlotte… Charlotte to Phoenix… Phoenix to Eugene… then Eugene to Las Vegas… Las Vegas to Charlotte… and Charlotte to Gainesville. I’m on leg… Continue reading Heading out to Eugene, OR
