About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

Heading East

MIDDLE East. Monday starts a five week jaunt to the Middle East and Mediterranean area, with a stopover in Bulgaria. (I figure I've spent at least 95 nights in hotels so far this year.)

First stop: Beirut. A city with stunning views of the Med. Most Americans think only of the civil war which raged there in the 70's and 80s. Well, those days are over (not that there aren't certain tensions.). But, this is a fantastic place. Can't wait.
