my life

i’m a warriors fan and enjoying their recent success after watching years of deplorable success with players like alton lister and kevin pritchard. i have my second electric car. i recently put a deposit in for the new tesla model 3 car but was disappointed at the interior and potential for problems since it’s the first model year of that car. i grew up near my parents and my kids grew up near their great-grandparents which is fantastic because i grew up far from extended family.

this weekend’s to do list

conan and andy are funny guys

i’m glad that conan and andy are back on the air (or cable, i suppose). i thought he should have been given a little more time to make it happen at the tonight show when leno retired. the usual audience there was just used to the boring, old-timey jay leno and maybe not ready for conan’s and andy’s humor.

also something i learned recently about andy richter – he’s also really tall. he looks a bit shorter and dumpier than conan when watching the show, but someone who went to the show sketched out how tall andy richter really is, using conan’s 6’4″ as the guide.

you can catch conan o’brien weeknights at 11 on TBS.

brandon belt needs to sack up

the giants are going to end up like the a’s or dodgers if brandon belt can’t pick up where buster posey leaves off after his big leg injury yesterday. how can he tear up AAA baseball and then disappear in the big leagues. he’s a good player, but we need to see it NOW.

if you missed it, this is what happened to posey

the darkest ed doyle in the world

here are the other, whiter ed doyle’s in the world.

boys trip to ed levin

aside from the allergies, the boys had a good time with lolo and dad at ed levin park yesterday. my dad is a real piece of work with his long-sleeved fleece shirt in the 7o-degree heat. he also probably had a warm cup of coffee before we hiked up.

i guess the secret to keeping the boys off each other includes a fountain, plastic jug and a toy insect net. i will have to remember that the next time they are wrestling in the living room.

jason and i worked on this years ago
