Here I am
Stuck in the middle with ice
Mountain biking on a 6 mile trail covered in ice, slush and cold mud was not the smartest thing I ever did; but it wasn’t the dumbest thing I ever did either. Oh and it sure was fun, and I would gladly do it all over again! 😉
It is also said by historians, that these rocky hills of North Jersey, were partly instrumental in General George Washington winning a war of attrition against the British. I can see why. LOL!
My first burrito of 2019! Burritos are warm and comforting, like puppies. Except that instead of being covered with fur, they are covered with a tortilla. And except that instead of holding them in your arms, you eat them. But aside from that, they are just as warm and comforting as puppies! I do know for a fact that puppies even like eating burritos.
Served with a side of homemade, tomato, lime, cilantro sauce. And a keyboard in the background.
During Christmas break, a family member was raving about home made cold brew coffee. They warned me up front that I will have to use a LOT more coffee grounds to get it right. With their suggestions in mind, I made my first batch of home made cold brew coffee, and it sure tastes delicious! But I gotta say – even though I loved it, I’m just used to coffee being hot. Also, after 1 week of experimenting with variations on the recipe, I have to say that cold brew coffee does not taste great with a little bit of coffee. Rather, it takes at least 12 to 16 times the amount of coffee grounds, to get a deep, flavorful tasting cup. In the long run, that’s too expensive for me.
So yes, cold brew coffee tastes great. But it’s still COLD, and it’s still expensive. And for me, it’s just not worth the expense. I’m glad I tried it though. You should too. Lemme know how your experiments work and what you think of it.

My favorite formula was this –
I did 6 ounces coffee. 26 ounces cold water. Let it sit on countertop overnight. It’s like drinking chocolate!
Locals call this the “Red Trail”, hence the red paint on the rock. However when Charlie Kirby rides, it becomes the Tie Dye Trail 😉

I went to JORBA’s New Jersey Mountain Bike Festival today at Ringwood Park. Beautiful people, wonderful weather. It felt soooo good to be out riding again!!!
My bike is covered in mud, and so am I
Hey Frugal Filmmakers. I had a screw loose. Literally, on the head of my Manfrotto tripod.
Couldn’t find the replacement part listed on Manfrotto’s website. Went to hardware store and picked up these M5-0.5 cap screws. Two for 56 cents. Such a deal!!! Now I can screw my head on right 😉
Patti Smith, Will Smith and Kevin Smith should all form a band and name it The Smiths.
Whatever this movement is, I want to join it!
