    You can’t afford to waste good liquor, George

    This is Pretty Girl. This is Snoop. That picture best describes Snoop.  6 months of never ending energy. Occasionally he quit moving long enough to get a photo. And that’s why my floors always look like crap. And this will be why I file suit against the City of Concord and Jackie Seeno if this ever gets to my house.  That’s our neighborhood fence line back there.  It’s down from the high that day.  I was reading on our local news website about how the creek was rising around mid day.  I got home around 6pm and the guys in the neighborhood were up on the bridge watching the creek. …

    Tell me what will I find

    I don’t really have time for more than a drive-by but some things just need to be said. Last night I went to the wake of a son of a friend of mine.  I don’t recall ever meeting him as an adult, I believe I met him when he was a kid.  I spoke to him on the phone when he worked in an escrow office.  Very smart young man.  After attending his wake last night, set to coincide with the occasion of his 30th birthday, had he made it, I found out that he was one of those young men that burned very bright.  His mother had told me…

    If it’s the last thing that we ever do.

    Not a big fan of linking back to myself, but here’s the back story…and then some.  And here’s where it showed up in the news.  I should have known the Concord Police weren’t smart enough to actually catch a criminal.  They weren’t.  Luckily the Clayton guy was on the job.  I’m sure the Concord Police were sitting around drinking coffee or making bogus busts.  That’s all these ass clowns seem to do. They pulled me over again last week with one of their speed traps.  Now the street I live off of has people racing down it all of the time.  It’s essentially an old two lane rural road that’s…

    We all know crap is King

    Buckle your seat belts kittens.  The Wine Dog is raging this morning. All the BULLSHIT about radiation reaching this country and the fact that we have bought up all the potassium iodide or whatever the hell it is, is pissing me off beyond words.  I don’t have cable so I’m missing some of it, but I do see the news in the morning at the gym.  For the record, my personal sources for news are the freshly defunded NPR, Reuters and the Daily Show.  Depending on the story is the order.  Politics I start with the Daily show and work backwards.  NPR and Reuters I start with them and work…

    The sky tumbling down

    Nothing like a good earthquake to put everything into perspective. I can’t imagine what it’s like to wake up in Japan this morning.  What’s the Japanese word for WTF? They said you couldn’t out drive it or out run it.  It came so quickly that there was nothing you could do.  I can’t imagine.  Japan has the world’s most state of the art earthquake warning system.  It measures p-waves and sends out a computer generated alarm when a certain pattern is recognized.  P-waves are followed by s-waves.   S-waves will kick your ass.  The alarm came out 30 seconds before all hell let loose.  The bullet trains come to a stop. …

    Loneliness has followed me my whole life

    My Pledge to Dogs is kicking the shit out of PBE in hits.  I think I’m on to something.  Lots of people have signed on, no need to fear being one of the first now.  And I’ve added a Hall of Shame.  There’s so many contenders for this one.  It won’t be my usual longer writing style.  Did you know they say a blog isn’t supposed to go past the fold?  We’re rulebreakers here at PBE. Apparently 8-14% of the local population is sick right now with the flu.  Add me into that mix.  Really I didn’t have a chance.  I tried my best.  I was at the Cult of…

    Get curious, and that’s marvelous

    Beyond trying to run a business and saving dogs and riding my bike to LA, and working out, I have some other projects going on.  This next one will change some as time goes on.  In the next month I will add a blog function to it, although it will have several authors and probably not much content actually written by me.  It’s pretty self explanatory.  Grab a cuppa, sit down and check out My Pledge to Dogs.  Then take the pledge.  And live the pledge.  And when some clown in your office says “We’ve got this chihuahua who is the greatest dog on the planet and we’re going to…
