Today I had a call in Livermore, out by Wente Vineyards. I decided to take my cam as I always see something out in the countryside.

Had 105K miles on Maxi so I turned her in today. I got Alli in exchange, 2011 Nissan Altima. Later I met Arlene for dinner at Kingfish. The Sea Bass was excellent. I now know the secret of Arlene’s diet. She orders the Beignets for desert and makes me eat 5 outta the 6.

While consuming pigs head, intestines & beef tongue doesn’t […]

Mary Ann was in town so we drove down to San Jose to meet her for a Pho lunch. I like my T-Shirt better, although I should have shaved. To further the Vietnamese experience I had an avocado shake afterwards.

Inspired by the Ikedas, Sandy decided it was time to cook our black ink pasta we purchased from Italy. She challenged me to a black pasta throwdown. We had to acquire our ingredients from the same local store and the dishes had to be ready by 6:00. Challenger 1: Pilipino Pasta Lover – Sandy Barin-Goya. […]
