Protein lesson of the day

I’m making an effort to eat more of a variety of lean protein (boneless, skinless chicken breast has always bored me *yawn*, and there’s only so many hard-boiled eggs I can eat). Did you know that turkey breast completely dominates in the protein department? Some protein values to scratch your head over: Skinless turkey breast […]

Decisions, decisions…

Time is running short to make a decision. My contract at Intel is almost up…and no word yet on whether it can be extended past June/July. Not that I really want it extended.

The Chicken came first…

In 2003 Alice Shirrell Kaswell solved the age-old problem “Which came first–the chicken or the egg?” once and for all.

The chicken arrived within forty-eight hours […]

Gila Monster!

Just thought I would share a picture of my most recent critter sighting (while hiking Millsite Canyon in the Superstitions). Isn’t he a beauty? For those that don’t know, Gila Monsters are one of only two species of seriously venomous lizards. This is the first time I’ve seen one out in the wild. Apparently they […]
