Countdown to Autumn Equinox 2020

‘Doesn’t take long at all for summer to crash through the doors, like that unwanted party guest you hope doesn’t show up, and send spring packing as quickly as it arrived.




AUTUMN EQUINOX 2020
9.22.20 – 9:30am EDT

Feels like I just did this! Fall and winter went by way too quick this year. 🙁

It’s already March as I sit here and type, and per usual, we’ve already had our first hazy, 80-something degree day here in the Ohio Valley, reminding us that the scorching summer inferno is imminent. Gone are the quiet days of winter when I could sit in the solace of silence and write, plan, and create. That peaceful atmosphere that breeds creativity and inspiration has quickly been impounded by the wonderful sounds of spring over the past few weeks;

  • Yappy dogs barking incessantly at everything.

  • Annoying birds who plant themselves on my window sill and blare their biological playlist on repeat.

  • Hyperactive kids who feel the need to overly-exclaim every emotion.

  • Eager pyromaniacs fireworks enthusiasts who apparently can’t contain their excitement to celebrate Independence Day till July 4.

  • Retirees and their lawn mowers. Seriously…..why do you feel the need to cut your grass every two-to-three days?

  • Door-to-door assholes who speak perfect English, yet somehow fail to recognize the clearly printed signs of NO SOLICITING, NO EXCEPTIONS on every door of my home (‘just bought a paintball gun the other day……😏).

  • Sports car/pick-up truck drivers revving their inferiority complexes as they pass by while their spiritual counterparts curiously spend thousands of dollars on expensive motorcycles… only to ride them up and down residential streets all day where the posted limit is 25mph (what’s that about anyway?).


Yes, spring is here in all its glory. And normally, I’d probably enjoy it more if the region allowed for a little longevity. The mild temps make it nice to hit the hiking trail and practice photography while winter’s end brings a nice reprieve of welcomed relief to the energy bills along with the added bonus of the close of flu season (though the Coronavirus pandemic seems undeterred). As it is… there aren’t a ton of reasons to be happy about spring if you live in the Ohio Valley. Allergens re-awake quickly as the temps begin to soar and the humidity strikes with a vengeance. ‘Doesn’t take long at all for summer to crash through the doors, like that unwanted party guest you hope doesn’t show up, and send spring packing as quickly as it arrived.


As my fantasies about that beautiful, wonderfully peaceful country home inch a bit closer to reality… the countdown to the annual Autumn milestone begins. Honestly, I may not feel that level of happiness on any other day of the year, and per usual, it can’t get here soon enough.

Awesome Deluxe Nachos Supreme Made EASY | With Chorizo

Fellow Gamers! I decided it was time to work some food back onto the channel! But please, don’t make me put the apron back on!

Fellow Gamers! I decided it was time to work some food back onto the channel! Once in a while I’ll get a message asking why I don’t do those silly cooking videos anymore. I backed off on them after the channel began to take shape with the focus on more of the horror cosplay and gaming, and honestly, I didn’t really think much of them and figured no one would notice if they quietly went away. For those who’ve messaged/commented here and there over the last few years, I’ve heard your requests and it’s time to head back in the kitchen, albeit with a little less camp. I’ve traded the hammy jokes for more focus on what you’re here for; #foodporn. But please, don’t make me put the apron back on! 😆

Have a look at my loaded nachos recipe. It’s easy to make and soooooooo friggin good!

Countdown to Autumn Equinox 2019

It’s an annual retreat from the elements that sucks, as I like being outside. I enjoy hiking into the woods and escaping civilization. I like taking nature photos, immersed in the peace and quiet of the trails.




AUTUMN EQUINOX 2019
9.23.19 – 3:50am EDT

UPDATE!!!! 9.24.2019

The countdown is over! Fall is here!!! Happy Autumn, everyone!!!!

…anniversaries. They’re usually about nice things. Celebratory occasions that evoke jubilance as in many cases they remind us of a milestone in our stories that was life-changing, triumphant, or just happy in general. This one, however, not so much. My little annual countdown to the autumnal equinox serves to remind me we’re only at the beginning of a long journey. I post it each year right around when Spring is in full-bloom.

Not sure how the season is where you live, but here in the Ohio Valley, it’s a short post-Winter stint of mild temperatures bringing a nice little reprieve from the high energy costs after months of your furnace driving your electric bill through the roof. Unfortunately though, it doesn’t take long for the temps to start rising and figuratively start the sweltering Summer stretch a full month early at times. Between all the rain and fluctuating post-Winter temps, there just isn’t much time to enjoy what a lot of people consider to be the best season of the year. In many cases, Summer temps hit in late April or early May and with them comes the hazy humidity and congestion-inducing allergens which quickly lead to people like me fleeing indoors to find refuge in the A/C.

It’s an annual retreat from the elements that sucks, as I like being outside. I enjoy hiking into the woods and escaping civilization. I like taking nature photos, immersed in the peace and quiet of the wilderness. Just me, my pack, and my camera strolling around — framing art and easing the stress of everyday living.

…I’d just rather do it when it’s not 90° outside.

Hey Autumn, I’m lookin’ at you!
