This week inadvertently became all about working with my hands. From fixing up my late father-in-law's truck, to working in the garden, to my many years of cooking, and even to some degree podcast editing I come to realize that I really just like working with my hands.

If you want to buy some Glass Gem Corn cobs or corn seed, reach out to me in any of the methods below.

I'm back from my unplanned annual holiday break and I'm going to try to get back into the old swing of things. More gardening stories, more rants, new movie/ TV/ podcast recommendations, and the return of BS From The News and the Jackass of the Week.

Check out some of my recent Glass Gem Corn harvest and more on my Instagram

Last weekend I had the opportunity to go on a little solo trip back to Texas to retrieve my late father in-law's truck along with some assorted other items. The drive back home could have gone a little smoother...

This week we started the daunting task of deep cleaning our entire house. Can you tell I'm excited? In the news, I've got a very unlucky fisherman, and a brand new vodka from a rather unusual source. Plus, a full update on our fall/winter garden.

When it rains it pours. Barely 2 days after getting home from the hospital from our last adventure, I had to rush our dog to the emergency vet, not once but twice in two days.
I also offer my less than stellar thoughts on "Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin" on Paramount+.

No news this week. Just telling the long complicated story of how my son broke his arm this week and the days long process of getting him patched up. From a tumble in taekwondo class, to visiting two separate emergency rooms, to finally needing surgery to get everything put back together, it was a very long couple of days.

Another week of sounding different, but this time I think it's from my new allergy meds. And in typical "me" style, I have a really long meandering story about our latest camping trip, getting lost hiking multiple times, and being sick that technically does relate to that first point. Speaking of lost in the woods, my one news story is about a criminal who did just that, and ended up needing a police rescue.

This week is a weird one. I'm not gonna lie. After some health talk, I get into our recent TV habits, including the new Hulu series "Only Murders In The Building." I give a brief garden update, and a heads up on our upcoming fall camping trip. Then the news takes an unexpected turn into the world of genital manipulation and I just can't seem to escape. Not even when I get into how Skrillex's music can repel mosq...

I'm sounding a little different this week on account of spending my drive home from work singing my head off to "The Commitments" soundtrack. I expand on a blog post I wrote this week about my difficulty recording the podcast recently. Plus, a return of the news featuring a suspicious social media post and a crafty artist. And a big announcement about myself and the next season of "The Rise Of King Asilas."

I discuss the installation of our new solar panel system, provide a garden update including another round trimming the mesquite, I give my super lazy fried chicken recipe, and share my feelings after seeing Hamilton! live.

-Another one of my boys knocked out a couple of his teeth. At least they were baby teeth this time.
-My garden is pretty empty other than a mantis that I relocated to my strawberry patch.
-And I give you a couple really simple recipes for caramel iced coffee, and my grilled chicken alfredo.

The boys are back to school, and to say that after school traffic was a nightmare is being disrespectful to nightmares.
Also, I recently purchased "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild" and holy crap this game is amazing.

It's been a few weeks, but I'm back. What have I been doing this whole time? Working mostly. Lots of looooonnnnng nights at work. And I got some new toys to "play" with including a steam cleaner, a wood chipper, and a pressure washer. But even with that stuff, it's still really just one form of work or another.

I don't even know what happened this week.
I started out talking about my boys being in Summer school and playing games. I sidetracked into playing sports in school when I was a kid. Veered into teaching my boys taekwondo. I also taught them about how mosquitos spread malaria via a very odd ice cream metaphor. I realized that beyond potty training, nobody teaches you squat about pa...

A week full of silliness. We've got weaponized pizza, counterfeit vaseline, and llama shaped marshmallows. Also, big surprise, Nestle food isn't very healthy.

*This episode is brought to you by "Coffee." When you just need to stay up for 2 more hours. "Coffee" Go to https://www.buymeacoffee.com/odddadout to buy me a coffee and keep me awake, because sleep is overrated anyway.

This week I have a, longer than planned, garden update, a mini rant about "autism" and "ADHD being umbrella terms, and a landscaping whoopsie that is a result of my own ADHD tendencies.

I'm a little lower energy this week. Just a bit tired so I keep things short for once. But "holy mashed potatoes Batman!" I actually have a general theme this week. It's all about the little things that have dominated my life this week. Starting with flowers on my pumpkins and watermelons going into my very first successfully grown potatoes, and ending with our new kitten.
A little show full of little things

It's another one of those, train of thought falling off the tracks, kind of weeks.
What I can tell you is that my brain goes all over the place with topics and thoughts. What I can't tell you is how exactly I got from where I started to where I ended up. I know I talked about fixing up my office and my wife's job. Somehow I got into the various responsibilities of my pets. I think I touch on my content production schedul...

It's another silly brain week. But this week I came to the realization that I may have reached peak adulting. Honestly I may be a little too excited about my new rake and my wife's new office chair. We also spent most of the week binging and introducing our boys to the Nickelodeon shows of our childhood via the new Paramount+ streaming service. I've gotta admit that I get a bit defensive of my TV nostalgia after a b...

For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
