Minor Makeover, More to Come

I have a little bit of spare time to play with the site’s design. The original Lars Vargas design was something I threw together in a few hours in order to get a site up and going. It’s rough around the edges at best, ugly at worst. I have made a few incremental changes today, […]

Persian Rugs and Traffic Jams

We went to visit Mrs. Vargas’s parents for the holiday weekend. We stayed at their house in Camarillo, CA. It’s a small city located about half-way between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, just north of “The Valley” of Valley Girl fame.

Happy Turkey Day!

Today Today is the day I go into hiding. I hear that turkeys are being sought out nationwide, and I have to play it safe. We each have so much to be thankful for today. In between bites of turkey, stuffing, and cranberry, I like to take a few moments to reflect on all we […]

Grandma was an excellent cook, but wasn’t really into the spices that much. Since I lived in Buffalo, good chicken wings were always easy […]

Analyze this: a test you can’t study for

A while back Mrs. Vargas and I were trying to conceive a little Vargas. We were not immediately successful in this endeavor. Sometimes this stuff takes time. Even after several months, we were still without a future little Vargas. Mrs. Vargas and I weren’t particularly worried, taking the “it will happen when it happens” attitude. […]

Wacky from Waxing

Las Vegas is a great place to live. We moved here for a variety of reasons. One was the weather. No hurricanes, not a lot of rain. In fact, other than the intense summer (dry) heat, Las Vegas has a very hospitable climate. While some would say that the lack of rain is one of […]

Many garage sales and not a single garage for sale…

Mrs. Vargas and I went to a terrific garage sale yesterday. Several, actually. What was terrific about them was that they were actually a community garage sale that spanned several neighborhoods in Green Valley, home of the Green Valley Ranch Station Casino (shown on American Casino). It’s a nice area, with some expensive homes, and […]
