Another Wonderful Salena Wednesday

So here is a first, Salena and I at LaSalles seeing Greg (Target Food Ave) kicking ass with a guitar!

He rocks! And being over 21 helps!
(By the way, that is Greg kissing Salena, guitar in hand.)

I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends

Today was a good lack-luster day up until tonight.

An overwhelming wave of malaise towards my former employer hit me tonight. . .

I have been drinking since 9:30 tonight and I'm not stopping anytime soon.

All I have to say is God bless my friends, and God bless Erick for having beer on tap at his house.

The Picture Of The Day

There is nothing more relaxing than having coffee with my parents at a Starbucks in Auburn.

Another Another Salena Wednesday

This time we are exploring the inner Chico city. Today we are at one of my favorite bars.

There is nothing quite like The Oasis. A couple of Gin and Tonics and Sevens Sevens, plus several games of eight ball. All for $10.

Another amazing day with Salena.

Once Again, Starbucks Has All The Answers

It is amazing how one cup of coffee not only revitalizes your body, but also your soul.

As a continuation to an early post from February 2006 (see Starbucks Has All The Answers), "The Way I See It #270" not only gave me hope at the conclusion of one of the worst months of my life, but made think of the good people I had the pleasure to meet along the way.

So here it is in its entirety, I hope you find it as uplifting as I did.

The Way I See It #270
Taste is subjective. Taste is democratic. Taste is powerful. Taste – the combination of texture, aroma, temperature, aesthetic and environment – is also a window into someone else’s life or culture. Be confident in your taste, but remain curious and expose yourself to new tastes. Allow your taste to constantly evolve and grow – while keeping and cherishing the memories that taste creates.

As Betty Williams, one of the greatest bosses I ever had the pleasure to work with, once said "variety is the spice of life."

So taste it all, and never hold back from your next great adventure.
