The New Glider

I am fortunate to live in a place that makes one of my favorite pastimes is only a five-minute drive away:  Slope gliding.  This is my latest model, a Mini Vector, and she’s pretty sweet.


This is one of the few ways in which living in West Los Angeles is a really good thing.

The obligatory foam-lined case.

Planted Fish Tanks

I’ve been keeping fish tanks since September 2006.  My current tank is an ADA 75-P, set up with ADA Aqua Soil.  It’s just a basic planted tank with Ryuoh stone and some driftwood.  At some point in the future, I may re-do it as a nature aquarium in the Amano style, but for now, here’s how it looks.

God Bless Nicaragua

In point of fact, the best cigars come from Nicaragua.  If you can handle the peppery ligero bite, here are a few really good ones:

  • Oliva Serie V Churchill Extra
  • Padron Anniversary (1926 and 1964–any size)
  • Cain F 550 Tubo
  • Man O’ War Corona
  • Man O’ War Puro Authentico Corona
  • Punch Bare Knuckle Robusto
  • CAO La Traviata Radiante Toro
