    Kicking Butts and Smoking Chickens: ODO 232

    Kicking Butts and Smoking Chickens: ODO 232

    It's been a busy couple weeks and you know I've gotta tell you about it. First off, the boys had a taekwondo tournament a few weeks ago. And, despite not coming home with nearly as many medals as some other recent tournaments, we were more proud of them all than probably any other tournament day before strictly becasue of their great attitudes.
    Then, watch out, a new "man hobby" has entered the field in the form of smoking meats. We have purchased a smoker, and I got to cook up my very first batch of smoked chicken this last weekend. A lot of lessons were learned, but the food was nevertheless amazing.

    I'm A Giant Bread Making Nerd: ODO 231

    I'm A Giant Bread Making Nerd: ODO 231

    Not much going on this week besides me spending way more time than usual baking bread and watching nerdy TV. In my defense, the baking is my wife's fault. She asked me to make bread. The nerd bit is totally on me. I started watching Star Trek: Picard. In the news, we're going to court for some really stupid reasons.

    Plasma Delays, Surprise Drugs, and Revisiting Night Court: ODO 230

    Plasma Delays, Surprise Drugs, and Revisiting Night Court: ODO 230

    Lots of rambling to start off this time. I can't help it. I just have to tell you everything I've been up to since the last time I talked to you. A little bit about how my kidney problem affected my plasma donations. Some garden talk. A bit about grinding up brisket for hamburger. Ya know, my usual ramblings.
    I've got a couple quick "BS From The News" stories about some surprise cocaine, and about some government people getting sick in Ohio.
    And finally, I decided to change up my "Recommended Listening" segment and turn it more into a "what I've been watching" segment, starting with my recent rewatching of the classic sitcom, "Night Court."

    BS From The News

    Pain, Pain, More Pain, and Some Gardening Too: ODO 229

    Pain, Pain, More Pain, and Some Gardening Too: ODO 229

    It's been a while so this one is EXTRA LONG! I recently got my spring garden planted. This is my most intentional and, from an output perspective, ambitious planting yet. I got sidelined hard by a couple of kidney stones. And last but definitely not least, I address the two major family losses that have kept me away and the toll it's taken.

    A Tale of Gardening and Ground Meats: ODO 228

    A Tale of Gardening and Ground Meats: ODO 228

    I know I've been doing all of the other things lately, but this week I'm back to just rambling about my garden, making my own sausages, and the wonders of growing and making your own fresh food.

    Christmas Cooking and Snappy Spending: ODO 227

    Christmas Cooking and Snappy Spending: ODO 227

    Hope you’re having a pleasant holiday season. It’s been crazy busy around here as usual. We had a well executed, albeit tiring, Christmas, even if I did have a slight miscalculation in cooking Christmas dinner.
    We’ve been watching some new stuff over the holidays. And the US government is not about to let the French or the EU upstage them in bullshit jackass spending.
    -What I’ve Been Watching-
    The Invitation (Netflix)A modern retelling of a classic monster tale that is very easy to figure out if you’re paying attention.The Mortal Instruments: City Of BonesA film adaptation of the Cassandra Claire YA book series, it was meant to start a movie franchise but failed at the box office. (Per my wife: the movie follows the story of the first book fairly accurately, but the casting is not very accurate.)Shadowhunters (series)With the failure of the Mortal Instruments film, it was relaunched as a series on the Freeform network. (Again per my wife: the casting is much closer to the book descriptions, but the show very quickly deviates from the books.)
    -BS From The News-


    US Government pays $118,000 to study if Thanos could actually snap his fingers
    A team at Georgia Tech was given a $118,000 grant to study snapping. They were especially curious to learn if Thanos would have been able to snap his fingers while wearing the Infinity Gauntlet. Spoilers, it only works because it’s a movie.

I get it!

This podcast is one of my favorites! I can relate to so much of the content! And I personally just love a good laugh.

Some Kind of Brown Podcast ,

Oddly chill and entertaining!

Listening to the Odd Dad Out episodes is like hanging out with a good friend; kids being crazy, life being crazy, news being crazier. Adam is like the Northerlion of podcasts and I love listening to the episodes when I'm working on something!
