I ate, and ate, and ate…

It’s not that I ate poorly, or that I wanted to eat so much, but when on vacation.. we visited people, went out to lunch, went to dinner, we ate at our friends house, we ate at our relatives house. They came over, we ate… ate some more…

Ribs. Who doesn’t love ribs? well, you know what I mean… As they are supposed to, the meat just flaked off.

Salmon. Slow cooked, almost smoked. So tender!

Gott’s Burgers. Almost as good as In-n-Out! lol

Pulled pork sandwich from a caboose in Half Moon Bay. This was good!

In-n-Out. Nothing beats a Double-Double. 

Pork Roast. Sooooo awesome! 

More Ribs. Just can’t get enough of them.

Tri-Tip AuJus. Do I need to say more?

I can’t live without Swedish Fish

Caviar spread

Cheese and meat plate in Napa Valley
Bouchon and their Oh-Oh’s.

Apple fritters are another of my favorites.

Then I had a burrito..
Jelly Belly factory is pretty boring on the weekends. Just lots of space and jelly bellys you can’t reach from the tour floor!


4 years daily

I posted every day for four years straight. This last year I was pretty busy and didn’t post what I really wanted to, but oh well.

Now, I will probably just post a few random pictures I take here and there. Or perhaps participate in a few daily photo or what-nots.

While I was in the states this summer I took quite a few pictures. So I’ll post a few of my favorites.

Napa Valley has a lot of grapes! And the agricultural engineering is pretty crazy too!

LaTour 1975. Unfortunately it wasn’t kept in a very good state, so it tasted pretty bad. The other bottles were even worse. Oh well. How often do you get to try one of those?

Half Dome and El Capitan from Glacier Point in Yosemite. Absolutely beautiful. Not much else to say!

M’s vs A’s! (Go M’s!)


Alameda. Crab Cove.. just to hang out.


Sierra Nevada. Pale Ales are another on my list…


Ribs. When I come to the states there are a few things I gotta have.. ribs is one of them!


Last. This might be my last post from my ‘same place’



Hanabi. Watching to fireworks is a season in Japan. During the summer, people go to different cities on different days to watch fireworks.  The biggest display has more than 20,000 lighting up the sky over an hour and a half. There may be more than 100,000 spectators and it is also broadcast on TV.
