Credit Freeze

If you don’t follow John Oliver and his shenanigans on Last Week Tonight, you might want to.  His show went out and made it easy to sign up for a credit freeze through the 3 major credit reporting companies.

Along with a jab at Equifax, the show does provide a great one stop shop for getting to the sites to freeze your credit.


Throwback – 2006

At the Phoenix rail yard.


Asking for a friend.

If you need a tiny cup of ranch, Frank’s Red Hot, or honey mustard… You might be a saucer. If you can’t make a steak, chicken, or any other food without salt & pepper (Montreal, Creole, bacon seasoning)… You might be a spicer.

This goes far beyond the battle of the sexes, the rich vs the poor, the young vs the old. It’s SAUCERS VS SPICERS

My wife is a saucer. Her whole family is made up of saucers.  At first I didn’t understand.  With every meal a tiny dose of liquid spicery or au jus must be present. Chicken gets a tiny tub of ranch or barbecue. She calls this “flavor” and don’t get me wrong, I like it. The problem is…I am a spicer. I love that little kick, the dash of  gusto before whatever I’m eating gets cooked or broiled before the inevitable hoover maneuver. 

I have to say, she’s enriched my life and palette with these dressings… These little cups of liquid joy. The honey mustard, the butter infused Shake & Bake (she took a spice and made it a sauce! Brilliant!), the Hollandaise, the Béchamel…

Where was I going with this? I’m not sure…Oh right… If a saucer and a spicer can live happily together, can’t everybody else? 

Saucers and Spicers


I think I want to go play football now.


I’ll take a mocha almond fudge on pine.
