09.25.11 Basmati

Ever want some advice on how to make rice then just ask CRG. He has the process down. It involves rinsing it several times which is something I never used to do.

09.24.11 back in Salina

Second day in Salina means the second day in a row at the famous Cozy Inn. This time we picked up a bag of 36 sliders for the entire band.

09.23.11 Salina

CRG performed a short solo show in Salina to give the good people a small taste of what they'll hear tomorrow when the Mudbugs invade the city.

It was our first trip to Salina together and we had to make a stop at their famous slider shop.

09.22.11 a million loads

We received our prize basket for making the finals of the Gain competition. Not a million bucks but I'm certain we won't be buying detergent for the next couple of years.

09.20.11 tots

This gem was at the Goodwill at Harry and Rock and can be yours for $2.99.

09.19.11 9,986,400 minutes

My alarm clock of 19 years finally failed me after 9,986,400 minutes. I bought it for college in 1992 and later that year I politely asked it to wake me up. I later scribbled that out for some reason. It was also featured in our Gain video and I recorded the alarm for a couple of beats in the song.

09.14.11 Uncommon Ground

We're about to debut our short documentary, "Uncommon Ground." We'll have a free showing at Belle Plaine High School on Nov. 12. The next day we'll show it under the stars at the Bartlett Arboretum after the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band performs on the lawn. Yeah, I'm pretty pumped!

09.08.11 ENJOY!

I was about to enjoy it until I remembered that I actually dislike the spring rolls from this joint. Everything else at this place is great, however.

09.07.11 human flag

I had fun hanging out in a bucket trip 80 feet over these kiddles.

09.06.11 Etch-A-Sketch

CRG recently surprised me with this lovely Sketch and my friend Sara gave us the lovely Smurfs for our wedding two years ago. I love the Smurfs, CRG and Sara.

09.05.11 I love bags in bags

This is my favorite new way to fly when I'm traveling with a relatively small amount of photo gear. I have my Think Tank Retrospective 10 inside my rolling bag with my very favorite packing cube set. These things are so amazing. I have six outfits fit into that teenie tiny red bag.

It's great for when I fly on smaller jets with little overhead cargo room. I just pop out the camera bag and gate-check the rolling bag on those flights.

09.04.11 Judah Sawyer

Kahla Sue's youngest grandchild, (nearly) 6-month-old Judah Sawyer.

09.03.11 Kahla Sue

The big surprise was revealed today when Kahla arrived home to a house filled with her children, grandchildren and me. I've been lucky enough to know this amazing woman for 24 of her 60 years.

09.02.11 when in Tampa...

You eat Cuban/South American food and meet up with old friends. Hadn't seen Cindy in about 17 years but it seemed just like it was yesterday.
