Lazy Sunday Chicken. (I’m lazy, not the chicken.)

Sunday night at our house has always meant two things: a big dinner and an HBO series. We've lived and died with The Sopranos, celebrated our monogamy with Big Love and cut our teeth on True Blood. We almost never go out on Sunday night. Sometimes, we ... Continue reading

Just what I needed

Did you watch the Grammys last night? Me neither! Ha! I was at the #HelpHaiti@Lawrence benefit show at Liberty Hall, and apparently, so were many of you. Some good folks over in Lawrence put the show together. It featured local music, local food (buffet style!), a silent ... Continue reading

You talkin’ to me?

Sometimes when I ride, I hear voices. Now, relax. It’s not like Son of Sam, who claimed he killed because a dog told him to. I find it hard to believe man’s BFF ever would say such a thing. Personally, I think the guy was a little, ... Continue reading

Trophy Hunting: Asking Your Thoughts

First let me state, I am a life long hunter, never as an absolute need to survive but as a learned skill. I have hunted for reasons of putting food on the table and to decrease predation, but never as a trophy hunter. I do not harbor ... Continue reading

Recap: KU pushes past KSU on its way to 20-1

It's practically impossible to narrow the difference between two teams down to any single aspect of a game. Every contest is full of factors and reasons for success and failure, variables in an equation that solves itself after 40 — or 45, in Saturday's case — minutes. ... Continue reading

Decision on flat screen TV is two years in the making … and counting

I’m not a big football fan, but we are coming to that one big day when everyone seems to get into the spirit — Super Bowl Sunday. I won’t be hosting any festivities, as it’s an away weekend for my son’s hockey team, but in looking through ... Continue reading

As clichéd as it sounds…

Someone wise, or at least nauseatingly optimistic once said, “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” Realistically, who the hell looks at that lemon and says, “Oh look, life handed me this bright and happy yellow lemon that’s so sour I can’t eat it! Hooray! Let’s make ... Continue reading

Novelty cigarette lighters targeted by bill

Making novelty cigarette lighters that look like toys is an obviously dumb idea. But they are also unsafe for another reason. They are imported from China. Just look at the labels--they all have a "Made in China" label. These lighters have a history of rulings against them ... Continue reading
