Anyone who knows me knows I love cereal.

(Probably) My favorite cereal of all is Quaker Oatmeal Squares.

When they are on sale, I buy lots of them.

Monday they were $1.88 a box at Safeway.

I bought 8 boxes.

It is now Thursday and I have 2 boxes left.

That is a lot of Quaker Oat Squares in less than 4 days.

I wonder if they're still on sale?

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of going up to Spokane, Washington, and participating in the LARGEST 3-on-3 BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT IN THE WORLD.

Participating is not the right word.

A few weeks ago I had the privelege of going up to Spokane, Washington , and DOMO-ING the LARGEST 3-on-3 BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT IN THE WORLD.

That's better!

Who knew that Spokane, Washington, population 195,000, eastern Washington state, near the Idaho border, would be home to the world's biggest 3-on-3 basketball tournament, but, is. The Spokane Hoopfest, 20th anniversary.

1 weekend
428 courts
6,701 teams
26,253 players
13,000 games
40 city blocks


It was a lot of fun and a great trip. Who cares that we only won 1 game. Hoopfest isn't about who wins or loses. It's about who has the best team t-shirt!

We Win

Thanks Dan O (and family) for organizing and bringing us up to your hometown...and all the good hospitality and free food.

No thanks Zac for pushing us into the '6 foot and over' division.

In addition to the hoopfesting, other highlights included some awesome sunsets and fishing on the houseboat, supporting the local Native American population by making a charitable donation at their casino, debating the merits of various frisbee golf disc personas, and finding my sandal after somebody decided to steal it one day and then bring it back the next. Thanks guy.

Down time

A few quick snaps from the other morning.

Fun run of surf over the weekend and into the early week...just what I needed.

Time not spent in the water was spent fixing some much-neglected (but much-loved) boards...

And enjoying the long weekend, home at the beach, with fireworks, family, and friends.

How to properly move furniture up a set of stairs

Any aspiring furniture movers out there, take note.

Here I demonstrate proper technique on moving a couch up a set of stairs.

1. Review the staircase, clear any obstacles

2. Make sure camera is properly positioned and in focus

3. Keep hands ready at all times in case of emergency

4. Maintain position at bottom of staircase, ready to quickly run for cover in the event of any incident

5. Cautiously proceed up staircase, celebrate a job well done

Follow these 5 simple steps and you'll be ready to safely move furniture all over the house, satisfying your Mother's every redecorating whim and fancy.
