We Met Alton Brown!

Allison and I with Alton Brown

Okay, so it was months ago back in September at the Barnes and Noble in Burlington, MA. But hey, we met Alton Brown and we are very excited about it. For those who are not in the know about Alton, listen up. Alton Brown is the host of Food Network’s Good Eats show.

It is on every single night at 11:30pm and early morning at 3:00am. He is also on on Wednesday nights at 9:00pm. The show is a Bill Nye the Science Guys meets Julia Child. Alton is a charismatic and personable guy. His show will entertain and teach you like no other food show you’ve ever seen. Alton is also an author and has two books out in print. I’m Just Here for the Food and Gear for your Kitchen. We got Alton to sign two copies each of the books. One set for us and one set for Tara and Erik’s Wedding Gift. Check out Alton Brown on his website and on the Official Food Network Good Eats site.

My Motorcycle

My Alphasport GV250

If you haven’t been on a motorcycle before, you gotta try it once in your life. This is my Alpha 250 V-twin Classic. It looks like a baby Fat Boy and in this photo it looks like a dwarf under my posterior but this bike has plenty of power.

A 250 you say, that is so small, how can there be power there? Well, this 250 isn’t like the Honda rebels of old, this is a beefy motorcycle that has provided me with hours of enjoyment during this past summer. Granted I’ve only been able to ride under 600km. It is a bike that is sold mostly in Europe and Asia and therefore the odometer and speedometer are in Kilometers. You get used to it. Eventually I’ll be moving on to a bigger bike, not before I buy something smaller and it doesn’t have tires but it is round. But for now this is a great bike to tool around on.
