Everything is Epic on a Motorcycle

Everything is Epic on a Motorcycle

I used to ride my motorcycle everywhere. I didn’t own a car for the last year and a half I lived in Virginia, and before that I hardly drove my MazdaSpeed 3. Since moving to Minnesota my riding has declined, to the point where I haven’t ridden my Yamaha FJR1300 since October of 2012. One […]

Installing an iSpring Reverse Osmosis Water Filter

Installing an iSpring Reverse Osmosis Water Filter

Where we live in Minnesota has terrible water. It’s full of junk, tastes nasty, stains our clothes, and causes all sorts of problems with our coffee maker. It was hard for me to drink the water, even after running it through a Brita filter. I would hold my breath a chug a glass of water […]

Nope nope nope

Nope nope nope

That’s what Sedagive?’s older son Gojira said as he backed away from the basement stairwell. His younger brother G-Unit giggled like a boy possessed. What caused such a stir? A multi-legged monstrosity that I’ve battled both in Minnesota and in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The house centipede. Tags: featured, minnesota, mutant insects

Epicurean Kitchen Series Utensil Review

Back in November I wrote about the Minnesota company Epicurean, who makes cutting boards and utensils out of recycled materials or materials taken from sustainable providers. I really like how durable and easy the cutting boards were, and while I was picking up some as gifts I decided to give their utensils a try. Epicurean […]

Fighting Further Gun Control: Week 10

Fighting Further Gun Control: Week 10

For the most part, individual states have resisted anti-gun legislation. There are notable examples, such as New York and California. There were a few surprises, like Colorado banning standard capacity magazines. However, by and large logic, history and statistics have triumphed over emotion. There is a new push of anti-gun legislation on the way. Senator […]

Fighting Further Gun Control: Week Four

Fighting Further Gun Control: Week Four

This week the article is personal — Minnesota is about to have a “firearm safety committee” by well-known anti-gun politician House Public Safety Committee Chairman Michael Paymar. As usual, any time firearms are brought up as a public safety, public health, or “save the children” initiative it is usually bullshit. Many anti-gun advocates will hide […]

Happy Adopt-a-versary, Porter! 2012 Edition

Happy Adopt-a-versary, Porter! 2012 Edition

Big hugs to my oldest dog Porter, whom I adopted eight years ago today. He’s traveled from Maryland to Virginia to Minnesota. He had a several year streak of being a little, uh, plump, but now he’s in fantastic trim. Sedagive? has had him and our other two dogs on a raw diet and boy […]
