Drinking: Alaskan Amber Ale This is an old favorite of mine and still one of the best Micro Brews you will find. Goes great with a big bowl of homemade chili and a slice of cornbread. Serve as cold as an Alaskan winter.
Reading: Washington - A Life After I have departed this earth you can look for the biography Seattledad - A life reading Washington - A life. At nearly 1000 densely packed pages, it may take me that long to finish. But, I am a big fan of everything about the American Revolution and this volume leaves little about George's life unexplored. For example, did you know that Washington sent off to London for a shipment of Spanish Fly after his wedding? Ok, maybe that's a little TMI.
Watching: Rescue Me We just started watching Season 1 of Rescue me a few nights ago and already we are hooked. Gritty, dirty, brutally honest, and most of all funny this series cast our hero's in an honest light revealing them as what they really are - people with issues, just like the rest of us.
Listening to: Surfer Blood Had I known about this disc before I made my best of 2010 post, I probably would have included it. It's a great indie rock record that hooks you and pulls you in from the start. Plus, I can't help thinking of Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze in Nixon masks when I see the band name.
Visiting: FatherFolk Get a bunch of talented dad bloggers together to write for a father focused blog whose posts are NOT about being a parent. What a concept.

Check them out and put them in your reader.
