Avocado Fries I have a particularly tragic memory of looking at rental houses with my friend when he first moved to LA and finding one that actually had an avocado tree in the backyard. I mean, a tree that was taller than the house and was heavy with ripe avocados This memory is tragic because my friend didn’t rent the house. If he had, I would have had a never ending supply to feed my avocado addiction.BTW – what are avocados, a vegetable? Some weird fruit? Either way, I really, really, REALLY love these…veggie-fruits from heaven. Let’s count the ways, shall we?

Paleo in the Local News - Doctors Getting on Board I'm never too interested in going to great lengths to carefully consider what I'm going to write about, how I'm going to say it, if it's totally sound and solid factually, fair, or any number of other paralyzing elements that would principally serve to make my blog a very boring place. There are already plenty of boring blogs. There's two reasons I operate this way: 1) I have open, unmoderated comments and when I fuck up, I hear about it. 2) I'm not afraid to say oops, I fucked up.

Since I'm going to make errors no matter what, best I accept the correction here and there -- keeps commenters on their toes -- just come clean, and move on.

How To: Haunted House Silhouettes By Jeffery Rudell With some jobs, when you’re burned out it’s best to take a break, to get away from the office and focus on something else. With creativity, however, I’ve found the opposite helps: for me the only cure for burnout is more challenges rather than fewer. One such challenge came my way a few years ago, when I had an opportunity to decorate an entire house for Halloween. The homeowner had a strict $100 budget and insisted that nothing be attached to the house in a manner that would damage the exterior shingles. The place was newly purchased, and the homeowner had yet to install any window treatments beyond inexpensive paper “contractor blinds” on all of the windows. The challenge was at first daunting, not least because I was doing the project pro-bono, the materials budget was tiny, and the restrictions seemed stifling.
