GromNom – Uncle Chops Smokehouse Burgers

I’ve noticed that lots of businesses in Weslaco, TX support one another by sharing each other’s Facebook pages. Pete’s Mesquite Grill shared the page of a new Food Truck named Uncle Chops Smokehouse Burgers. Pictures looked very good so I headed that way for lunch on the Grom. I ordered a burger called To The…

Harder Than I Thought

I can not believe how hard it has been to blog every day. So far, I have missed three days. Yesterday after work, I was really hungry so I asked the missus if we could go eat before church instead of after. We did so and then went to church. After church, we hung out…

Investing in a Book

Some may know that I do not like watching movie trailers. I feel they give away too much. Similarly, I do not like to read what a book is about. I browse books by their rankings, previous books by the same author, by category, and yes, even by their cover. Many years ago, this method…

Down and Out

Woke up this morning feeling very out of it. Very weak and zombie-like. I laid out most of the day. I did head out to the store to get some new shoes but regretted it as soon as I hit the road. When I got back home I had to lay down and stayed there…

Following up on yesterday’s post about my new Trayvax wallet, I wanted to try the hook for carrying plastic bags. When I looked up this wallet, I read the intention of the hook was for grocery bags. I also read a lot of ridicule over it. But you know? Don’t knock it until you try…

Every where you look, the start of the new year is full of resolutions. I, myself, have several. Funny enough, none of my resolutions have to do with health! Mine are based on the hobbies and projects I have taken on over the years. The most recent being converting motorcycles to Cafe Racers. I have…

Where’s the beef?

Yesterday I wrote about having more meat in my posts. Now, no, there isn’t meat in this post but there is a meat cooker in it! This is an Old Country offset smoker for smoking briskets. Well, you can smoke all kinds of meat but for me, it’s strictly a brisket machine. I was given…
