New Years Resolutions

The new year brings a chance to reassess your life and what is important. It allows you to make changes and set new goals. 2012 has been a great year.  I got an amazing Mountain Bike


We went on a cruise to Mexico


I realize that I need some new challenges. In 2012 only set one goal and that was to get my weight down to 165lbs for the Santa Barbara Triathlon.  I did it and had an amazing race.  I had my fastest run in any distance triathlon.  I only had a 5k where I had a faster pace.


This year I need more. I have been mentally bored and need some new challenges.

2013 Goals

1. Complete The Mount Lemmon Marathon “The Worlds Toughest Marathon”


2.Get to 160 by the Marathon April 28th I am currently 172.

3.Create a plan to grow the audience for both of my blogs Vigor of Life, The Man Pub, and The Man Pub podcast to 1000 each.

4. Get 3000 followers on twitter @vigoroflife and @themanpub

5. Take a blogging course

6. Get back to learning Japanese

I actually think this is quiet a bit.  I hope you all have a wonderful and safe New Years I will be working but that’s ok.

The Mind Of Lemm

Hello! Welcome to the first edition The Stache. My name is Dylan Gross and this is a new publication for themindolemm and it’s been far behind in schedule. The aim is to bring you the latest and greatest things in the realm of, “manly things.” It’s titled The Stache because I believe every man should go through the process of at least trying to rock a moustache at some point in their life to be able to claim the title of man.This means we will be discussing: cars, motorcycles, tobacco, scotch, guns, moustaches, and essentially whatever I feel like talking about here that can be deemed manly.

The first thing I’d like to post about is the incredible masterpiece that is the Königsegg Agera R.ImageThis machine is the new big boy on hyper-car campus. The Swedish company has crafted a 6 world record holding monster that produces 1140 BHP…

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

I am at work writing this blog on Christmas Eve. I hope that you are not at work and home with your family unless you are not Christian then you should be at work. The holidays are a great time a year if you have $$$ and a very stressful time when you only have $. My friend Chris is very against Happy Holidays. He says its Merry Christmas. He is also from England. I think its Merry Christmas to Christian friends, happy hanukkah to Jewish friends and happy holidays to the rest. I mean should I say happy Hanukkah to everyone regardless on Hanukkah? What are your thoughts. We live in a very diverse country and while certain parts of the country only Merry Christmas would probably suffice most major cities are very diverse.

I say lets all just say HO HO HO and call it a day.

For Christmas I was not supposed to get anything since I bought my motorcycle however Erin came through and got me



“Worlds Finest Whiskey Glass” and Whiskey Rocks. Can’t wait to try these!

Dr. Z and Bitterman Podcast

We talk about important life issues.  In today’s show we talk about people that have expensive cars that feel they need a huge sticker to let you know what it is, how toilet protectors affect our lives, why milk hormones only benefit women, what happen to the receptionist that killed herself over putting a prank call through to Princess Kate, the difference between face soap and body soap, and why women don’t like balls.

Listen Now





I Think We Survived the Apocalypse (End of the World) I Think!

Well I went to an end of the world party last night.  It was a lot of people from work.  We mostly talked about two other people from work.  Gossip, Gossip. I drank some delicious Anchor Porter.  It is in my top 10 favorite beers.  It is chocolaty goodness.


The party started at 6. I woke up at 6 and it was an hour away.  This basically equals I am not going to stay until 12 and see the end of the world.  Erin asked me if we would just sleep through the end and I said I hope so.  She said I want to see it, so I hit her in the shoulder hard and said it might hurt like that.  LOL.  Erin: ok i should sleep through it I guess.  Although tired as shit I said that we had to have sex because I am not dying without going out with a bang, I will use this line again tonight.  I think maybe the Mayans were just trying to get everyone laid.  I mean think about it.  Last night you could have went to a bar and used the Pitbull line “Can’t promise tomorrow
But, I promise tonight”.  So if you didn’t use this line last night it may still work tonight.  I can’t promise anything but its worth a try.

So I am now writing this blog so I lived through it.  Oh but maybe it ends tonight.  I am trying to figure out what cigar in the humidor would be appropriate for the end of the world.  I did buy some Zaya rum to have with it because I have heard good things but I have never tried an aged rum.

I will be making a Podcast tonight so look for it tomorrow.
