Where a Man can be a Man and not told to Shut Up!

Shit You Need to Know

Welcome to 2013!


We made it through the year when the world was supposed to end. A lot happened last year good and bad but toward the end of the year there sure was a lot of killing. Although the United States may be one of the best countries in the world we have a lot of violence. We are no longer a culture the respects one another. A matter of fact as a whole I am not sure that we respect anything. I mean don’t we deserve everything. I am entitled to whatever I want. If I don’t like something I won’t do it. This is what parents accept and teach their children. This has got to change! There should not be safe and unsafe neighborhoods. I should not have to worry where I go when I am in a foreign city.
In an age of texting and email we have lost our ability to communicate and deal with problems. I am not better than you and you are not better than me regardless of where we live and what we do for a living. We are only different. This has to be taught early.
I may make fun of people on here but believe me I will make fun of everyone and mean no disrespect. I believe that the more macho you act the less of a man you really are. Lets all try this year to relax a little more. Lets try to help people out a little more. Lets go out of our way to respect and get along with others regardless of their race, religion, sexual preferences, or wealth.
American culture teaches us to rush rush rush. In 2013 we should all try to take some time to have a nice glass of scotch, beer, or wine and cherish what we have. I try and do this at least once a week. Sometimes I add in a nice cigar! The point is I hope that you and me can have an amazing year and while we need to make an effort to spread the love we need to take care of ourselves and our love ones as well. As Micheal Jackson said “it’s all for love”.

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.

Amazing Night w/ Romeo y Julieta and Glenmorangie


So Erin and my sister Ashley are out for the night at the Miranda Lambert concert.  My brother Drew and I decided it was time to relax so we went up to Bevmo and got Scotch, beer, and cigars.  What a perfect night.  Drew and I bought Cigars (I got a Romeo y Julieta 1875) 

This was a very nice mild cigar.  I have not smoked many cigars and I did enjoy this one.  I also had some of my favorite Scotch (Glemorangie).

The combination was amazing.  Drew and I had some great conversation and just relaxed in the Phoenix heat with the misters on.  Drew enjoyed a honey flavored cigar and a Decade Imperial IPA which was to die for.

We were even listening to Sound Tribe Sector Nine or STS9 which my sister in-law is in love with and was so proud of me for listening to.  After the Scotch it was time for one of my favorite beers St Peter’s Cream Stout.

I think this is as good as beer gets.  It was a great ending to a relaxing night.  I also am finishing off with some Elton John on Pandora.  Sometimes life can be so simple and simple can be amazing.  Cheers to simple.


NO EXCUSES!


Ironman Japan 70.3- “Our eldest athlete Hiromu Inada, just crossed the line. His words to me: “I am too late”. My answer: “You have  , 40 minutes you nailed it”. See you in Kona Hiromu and watch out Lew Hollander, a speedy Japanese gentleman is now in your age group!” I looked him up and he is 80 years old.  That is my idol Hiromu you are my hero

Italy What Happened?


When you think of things from Italy what do you picture?  I think of Lamborghini, Ferrari, Ducati, Aprilia,Versace, and more.

Then you have Fiat!

What the HELL is this?  It isn’t beautiful.  It isn’t fast!  What is it?   Was this designed by some art failure that couldn’t let go?  I am so confused.  I think the Italian government should pay Fiat to move their company to Poland or something.


Mountain Bike Ride and Making Mormon Tea


For my birthday first Erin took me out to an awesome breakfast at The Good Egg. Then Drew, Danny, and I went for a nice bike ride at Pima and Dynamite. The trail is basically up and down with no significant climbs. However it is sandy and that always adds some challenges. A great ride it was. We also pick some Mormon tea and chewed on it.

Now we are going to brew up some Mormon Tea

After the Ride we ended the night with a great pizza from Rare Earth pizza and wine bar.
