Evening Ritual at the Ranch

I was at our property last week repairing the awning around the ranch house. We call the property “The Ranch”. The ranch is located an hour or so from Del Rio. I learned how to operate a “framing” nail gun. That sucker was fun to operate and sure beats a hammer. After we completed all

Old Malware Shows a New Face

Be very careful when opening emails from unexpected sources.  An older malware showed back up last week with a new trick up it’s sleeve.  The email may look innocent enough with a shipping confirmation, PO or even an update on The Presidents health.  The sender of the email can even show to be from someone

Nature is Amazing

So, when I get a chance during the day, I try to step out of the office and take a walk outside.  The fresh air is rejuvenating.  On these small adventures, I will usually observe my surroundings and contemplate such things as “I wonder what that antenna on the top of that telephone pole is

Looking into the Future

2020 has been a crazy year. I do not remember living in a time where so many issues are going on at one time. The pandemic, political unrest, social justice issues, economic issues, and the list goes on. The pandemic has by far been the great equalizer. Some good that has come out of this

2-2-1 Ribs

There are various ways to cook ribs. One of which I recently tried was the 2-2-1 method with spare ribs. This method of cooking ribs consists of smoking the ribs at 225 degrees for 2 hours, then wrapping them in foil or butcher paper (really tho, try butcher paper for better bark & smoke permeation)

Do you believe in magic?

Growing up I was always fascinated by the amazing performances of magicians, not so much their showmanship as much as their genuine skill. The sheer ability to make something disappear at a moment’s glance, or make your closest friends levitate! These were just a couple of the many tricks that captured my attention as a

Subterranean Drains

Do subterranean drains work? Yes they do – most of the time. I have a 3-drain system in the back yard. The system works pretty good for the most part until freshly cut grass clipping and the neighbor’s oak tree leaves clog the drain covers. The original drain covers were flat, level with the ground,
