Patrick Prout 1966 – 2017

A few days ago I found out that my dear friend Patrick passed away on September 9th. He was 51. Patrick was a kind soul. He was my best friend. He was my brother. He was one of those rare people that you meet in your life that you can really talk to.  He...

New Digs

Sunday morning... Keri's friend, Kim, who we met at Occupy Providence a couple years ago, is here. They're talking about fermentation stuff. In an hour and a half or so we are heading back over to the East Side to see an apartment. 3 bed but no laundry so I'm not so...

Digital Drums

After 20 something years of wanting and waiting, I finally have my very own digital drum kit! Some guy out in Cranston put his Simmons SD5K kit up for sale on Craigslist for only $150.00! I arranged a ride with Wayne to get out there and after an hour or so of email...

Only 28 more days left of Winter. The first half of this Winter was actually pretty mild compared to the last few years. At least it was to me. This past month has been something else. We're expecting even colder temps over the next couple days and then a "warm" 41...

The Run before the Storm

My last two runs were on Jan. 23rd which I neglected to blog about. I ran twice that day because I knew the blizzard was coming and I would probably not be able to run during the week. Turns out I was totally right so I'm glad I got out there. Both routes below:  ...

Roasted Poblano Corn Chowder

The Snowmageddon Snowpocalypse snow storm that passed through has kept us mostly indoors for the past couple days. We were totally prepared with a fully-stocked fridge, freezer, and pantry. Cold weather like this calls for soup, and I have been meaning to try this...

100+ Miles

According to the app I use to map my runs, I have now run more than 100 miles when you combine the last 30 or so workouts. This is pretty great. I wish I had logged some of the previous runs with the app so I could have the actual total. Tonight's run was actually a...
