Muddled Metaphors

You can judge a book by its cover…but then you get wolves in sheep’s clothing.
When we stop judging books by their cover…we get sheep in a wolf’s clothing.

Center of My Known Universe

Things I’ve learned riding to the center of my American Universe:
Nothing worth telling anyone about is easy.
Life is 98% drudgery on your way to the highlights.
The good bits will always come, learn to appreciate the drudgery…

Center of the States

I was as far away from all the oceans as I could possibly be today. It sort of defined the term “land-locked”. The Center of the Lower 48 States, just outside of Lebanon, KS…more photos…

Riding North

This begins the 3000 mile motorcycle trip from Kansas City to Montana. I’ll be quickly passing through Sturgis before all their festivities begin and on to Billings. There I’ll be meeting up with old friends and we’ll ride the Beartooth Pass (which is a Bucket-list item for me) After that, we’ll just wing it. Could

Just another day on the road…

I found a man dying on the side of the road early in the morning. I drove right past him, no, it couldn’t be that…but then the reality of the situation sunk in during a hasty u-turn. He was old and collapsed on the side of the road. My only thoughts were “Please don’t let

Biff Reunion – Day 1

This is the first full day of my full vacation. I’ve landed safely at our friend’s lake home on Smith Mt. Lake Virginia. Amazing place and wonderful people.

So, what happens when you start throwing around a GoPro camera while swimming? The girls take over the production…

Po-Go Zombies

And remember, safety first, so keep an eye open for the Po-Go zombies as they troll your neighborhood for their next conquest. All this really does is identify them as “first against the wall” when the revolution begins.

300 Miles of Missouri

It was a long hot Saturday. A test run for things to come later this summer. My idea was to day-trip it from Kansas City to Carthage, MO…about 300 miles round-trip. I wanted to try and do that all in one day, and take all back roads, on my KLR 650. My questions were, could

Traveling Product Review

Just got my free deep-tissue massage from the TSA, I have recombobulated, and am trying out my new Bose QC25 headphones. And holy shit, without any music just the noise cancelling is AWEsome! Serious 2 thumbs up. All the hollow background drone and echo of the airport is gone. I can hear voices of folks

Bored Molding

You know your really bored when you start to post photos of the molding. Seriously…is this what it comes to in the end? I need to put the mouse down and step away from the computer before anyone gets hurts.

Dreary Day Dreaming…

Just dreaming of better days and riding. It’s so dreary and grey outside. Midwest winter consists of grey cold…that’s it. On top of that I seem to have lost my enthusiasm. I feel the white-water rapids of life coming around the corner…change is coming…change is good. Or maybe I just invest in some cold weather

Guess What I Did This Weekend…

So…what happens when all the professional landscapers turn you down for poison ivy removal? Send in the clowns… Yeah, it was a REALLY large poison ivy bush…or more like a poison ivy tree (do they make those?).

In remembrance of Spring

This was my yard a couple of weeks ago. Now it’s just all too much grass and poison ivy (insert sad face). I miss Spring time already and it’s not even over. These were some of the first days with my new camera, Panasonic Lumix LX100. Can’t say enough goodness about this little beast of

And the plastic battle raged on…

So much fun with one little camera. I’m telling you, once you truly sit down and think about your workflow and your needs, then you will find the proper fitting camera for you. Don’t fall prey to the latest pixel count or sensor size. And interchangeable lens are really just another way to get more

Seriously Shallow…Part II

This camera is just way too much fun. And I’m really falling in love with Macro photography. It’s been so long since I’ve had a decent camera that could handle such small subject matter and close-up work. Also, this 1.7 lens really helps. So, today, I was playing around with using some printed backdrops; and

Seriously Shallow…

Yeah, this is a seriously shallow depth of field. Just playing around with my new Lumix LX100. Completely rocks for such a small camera. 4K video, amazing photo features, old school ergonomics, tiny size, large chip, good price…can’t say enough good about this one. Don’t be fooled by the DSLR world…just get what you need

500 Words Story: Time to Go Home

It took him a while…nearly 40 years, but he finally solved the problem with his sub-transit temporal confabulator. Or we can just call it a “time gate”, for you and me. It all started as a game when he was a kid. He would build spaceships, gadgets and machines out of any sort of cardboard

500 Words Story: We Are MegaMan

Yeah…I used to be MegaMan. Once…a long time ago. Not just once, I mean, I was always MegaMan. I don’t ever really remember a time that I wasn’t MegaMan. Well, I wasn’t called MegaMan when I was a kid…and no, I wasn’t called MegaKid. I was just Jonathan. Not an ordinary kid, but just Jonathan
