The circus is in town!

Not quite like going to see the circus. It was missing the elephants. Students from the Art Institute, San Diego presented their Capstone projects for display at the San Diego Air and Space Museum in Balboa Park yesterday. Some of them did a remarkable job, others...better go back to class. I showed  my display for promoting this [...]

Having thoughts of suicide? Read this…

Casually reading Facebook posts should not be exhaustive, frustrating or even upsetting; yet we find ourselves reading other's postings that are rants, raves and sometimes announcements. I think it was Paramore's Hayley Williams that wrote "Whoa, it was never my intention to brag" when talking about stealing a boy; but holding bragging rights is something special unless [...]

Mystery ingredient – “I’m Asian…just as good as a chef”!

When you bring a fresh fruit or vegetable into my workplace, you may just have brought in the "mystery ingredient". In my workplace, as with many office places, there are similarities. There is a mini kitchen complete with refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven and a giant drawer of mismatched utensils including a fist full of dull knives that I continually try to [...]

ABV = alcohol by volume. Arggh!…Another damn Gopher!

Watching the Stanley Cup playoff game number 2 with my visiting Brother-in-Law, eldest son, youngest son, and this bartender that says she writes. She said she wants to write about beer...and that she knows a thing or two about the hops. We'll see 'bout that...if she chimes in. I last wrote about this joint and [...]

The Devil’s Throat (Garganta del Diablo)

So making pizza's tonight in the oven...I'm so gonna be busted. I make this veggie pizza... and what started as a small perforation (hole) during assembly, turned into a festering flesh-eating bacteria, getting bigger and bigger. Kind of resembled The Devil' Throat. This thing dumped about 1/3 of the pizza's toppings into the bottom of the oven. [...]

Napkins…it’s all about the napkins!

Tried another...and not just another mexican food hole in the wall...this one was in fact...a hole in the wall. Lourdes Mexican Food located inside of the back wall of the El Norte Car Wash at 615 El Norte Pkwy in Escondido, CA. I was told Lourdes has been inside for 5 years. I have long taken my car to [...]

I’m on Facebook – Now I’m hungry?

So I now have CritDicks on Facebook and linked to Twitter. This social media thing gets quite complex. I now somehow need to relate this BS to food. How about... "I'm hungry". If I start to write something about food, I will be... Let's just leave this particular rant to say CritDicks -  A precariously critical, [...]

Need directions?… Ask Tim Tebow!

So you’re hosting a gala celebration, a large party with many anticipated guests, sending invitations to everyone you know, some you don’t; yet others, perhaps business associates that may just be interested in attending to show respect... The invitations include a brief geographical map, the address and contact information. Who would have thought nowadays, people don’t use some [...]
