Month: July 2014


From a Cell phone!

So I’m doing a little work after hours and away from home (too many distractions).  As I continue to test OS X Yosemite and iOS8 I decided to try using my iPhone 5s as a hot spot.

Wow!  I though things were cruising right along but I had NO IDEA I was getting this kinds of speeds.  I normally use a dedicated Verizon Hot Spot but it kind of seems pointless if I can get this kind of Internet bandwidth from my cell phone.

This is better that I’m getting at home from U-Verse and paying $56 a month for…

Yes, I can hear you now Paul, loud and clear!

I Seriously Thought This Was a Parody…

But it’s real.  And I’m left scratching my head…

Ladies & Gentlemen; I Give You the Batali

Sparked from a recent Nuvo.net review and hungry for something different than the typical downtown fare I stopped at Goose the Market on my way back to the office.

This was the first time I’d tried Goose for lunch & they had a pretty steady lunch crowd.  Each sandwich is made to order and the bread is pressed and toasted.  After getting my order in I was told it would take about 15 minutes.  Just enough time to wander around the market and check out all of the unique and seasonal products.

Within about 10 minutes my name was called and I was handed a warm little bundle wrapped in brown butcher paper.

Goose the Market was named as one of the Top 10 Sandwich Shops by Bon Appetite with good reason.  The Batali (named after Mario Batali’s father) is a fresh and chewy baguette stuffed full of spicy coppa, soppressata, capocolla, provolone, tomato preserves, hot giardinara, marinated red onion, mayo, romaine.  It’s big, messy and unbelievably delicious.  In fact, letting the sandwich sit for a while only helps because the bread absorbs some of the mess and the flavors have a little time to meld.

The Batali reminds me of the Pressed Picnic Sandwich I’m very fond of and it’s a lot less work to get!  At $7.85 it’s a great deal and one that I’ll be adding to my lunch rotation.  In fact since starting this post a few weeks ago I’ve already returned and had the sandwich again.  It was just as amazing as the first time.

Weird Al, Tacky: Parody of Pharrell’s Happy – BETTER Than the Original!

Just when you finally thought you got the “Happy” song out of your head comes a new parody & I think it’s better than the original song itself!  Enjoy…
