The high life

On warm(ish), lazy weekend afternoons we like to sit out on the patio and have Micheladas (aka cerveza preparada). There are all kinds of different recipes for the drink, but we prefer vegetable (like an organic V8) to straight tomato juice. And no Worcestershire sauce for me. Miller High Life is our beer of choice because the Michelada tastes best when made with a light lager–snappy ales and dark beers are better straight up.

Can’t always say why

I’ve said it several times before, but stopping for a few minutes during the hectic commute and hoping to get a good photo is a crap shoot. Today, I rolled the dice and came up with an image I really have no explanation for why I like it. But like it I do. No doubt, the splash of “burgundy” (or however that color reads on your monitor) is what initially caught my eye–there was nothing else that color in the whole panorama. Hmm? I guess I said why.
