Taylor’s the Taste that Refreshes

Tasty burger!

Took a trip up to Vallejo to visit Mr. Zorko. After picking him up, we went for a beautiful scenic trip up to Napa and then to St. Helena, home of Taylor’s Refresher where they have the best darn, tasty burgers. Got some fries and Fat Tire beer to wash it down. For dessert, a decadent green tea milk shake! Good thing bootcamp workouts start in a week…

Tribute to Fallen Breakfast Cereals


Growing up I loved eating cereal. Lots of cereal! Cereal brought me tremendous joy, especially, the brands that my parents forbid me to eat. Many of these cereals have left the planet and are now only a memory. Here is one of my old faves, the curious Pink Panther Flakes and Nerds cereal because, it’s such a ridiculous tribute to a candy – which most cereal resembles anyway!

Obama on “Check Please…”!!

I just discovered that Barack Obama, then a little known Illinois State Senator, was on a pilot episode of the Chicago [original] version of Check Please… The San Francisco version on KQED is one of my favorite shows. The show features three regular people that share their favorite restaurants and the other two guests check it out and share their opinions.
