CSA’s Rule and Here’s Why

21 Jun

Organic broccoli, raab, scallions, and kale with orzo!

It’s summer time and that means a lot of awesome things. No school, swimming holes, vacations, hangin’ with pals, the list goes on. This year is my first summer in New Paltz not living on a couch, so I’m already off to a great start, but there are a few things that I’m really really excited about, and my CSA is one of them.

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, Continue reading

Tales of a Broke Twenty-Something Year Old: Yard Sale Edition

5 Jun

I’m sure I’m singing the tune of many when I say I’m under-employed and not doin’ so hot in the green-bags department. I’m also sure I’m not the only person who’s lost sleep over money issues, and mine probably are far less serious than some; but when I woke up from what little sleep I did have after a dream about soliciting myself outside a local Dunkin’ Donuts, I decided I needed to get a bit proactive.

Over the past week I’ve made several moves to get myself some extra cash and over the past year or so have made slight alterations to my lifestyle and the products I do (or don’t) buy, which not only saves money, but is good for a whole bunch of other reasons too. Continue reading

Beard of the Week: February 2

2 Feb

Welcome to February, arguably one of the crappiest months of the year. We’ve got Valentines day, football madness, and today the groundhog didn’t see his shadow which means we’ve got six weeks of more pleasant weather to look forward to!

But have no fear, because I have a quite a list of beards to give to all you which, trust me, will keep you nice and warm during the next few cold weeks!

This week’s beard belongs to someone who most might call a “man’s man”, I have enough issues with that statement, but I figure it’s important when discussing the quality of one’s beard. Continue reading

Beard of the Week: January 26

26 Jan

It’s Thursday! Which means it’s time for yet one more lovely beard to be honored over here at Beard of the Week!

Let’s go back to the sports world, with the help of pal (and new roomie!), Justin, I’ve come across quite a beard.

Pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, Brian Wilson!

I think that photograph says it all. Continue reading

Beard of the Week: January 19

19 Jan

This week’s beard is another obvious winner, but I decided to do it anyway because this man is just so darn handsome (dare I say, even without a beard?), that I had to.

I can’t count how many times I’ve used the phrase, “Oh, he’s a total Clooney.” And with good reason, beard lovers, I present you with Mr. George Clooney!

I mean, the smile, the eyes, and the obnoxious amount of charm Continue reading

Beard of the Week: January 12

12 Jan

Welcome back!

This week’s beard is one I didn’t even know existed. My interest was piqued after watching Mrs. Doubtfire for the seven millionth time since I was four years old. I said, “Man, that Pierce Brosnan is a total hunk…I wonder…”

Off to Google I went and I found THIS Continue reading

Beard of the Week: January 5

5 Jan

This week’s beard is one I’m newly obsessed with.

Ladies and gents, Ryan Gosling!

I’ve been watching his movies all week, and let me say, he’s just plain wonderful. There’s nothing better than the image of him hacking away at a piece of wood in the Notebook. Movie? Not so great. Beard? Stellar. Continue reading
