Yes, and it hasn't slapped me back yet.

Eat too much? Have too much of a good time? Don't panic.
We took a mini-vacation to Jerome, Arizona the last four days in celebration of yet another of my mother's 21st Birthdays. We had an incredible time, especially our stay at the Surgeon's House Bed and Breakfast. You know you'...

Had a great day of fishing on the Lower Provo. Nine brown trout and one rainbow.
Accidental selfie. You can't live dangerously without a little fishing. If you're a follower of this blog, then you'll remember when I posted the blog about fishing when I was in Afghanistan called When I Used to Be a Fisher...

This is what I'm eating this week.
Living Dangerously is all about rejecting the norm. It's about deciding you're not going to take the simple path. As Robert Frost would say, I took the one less traveled by. Is there danger with doing things other people don'...
