Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

banks, lacrosse, and beers

September2

so…

I’ve been on a covert mission, that won’t be so secret later today.

the Feds are going after Bank of America, and that is for good cause.

with that effort more behind me, and less before me, I’ll be on the boat most of the weekend other than Lacrosse practice Sunday.

more about that later. but, I am having a blast with my Young Lions Pride.

meanwhile, I’ll trust all of you to have a great Labor Day weekend. Although we must rue the end of seersucker for the year, I’ll leave you with this low-technology visual tip (great opportunity realizes itself in the oddest forms).

we have a lot to celebrate. do it!

Model Especial for me.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

events and such matters

August2

so… at some uncertain point when the cool night melted in the face of the relentless sun, time stood still, but for a moment, as a significant milestone in the form of the number of visitors to this Blog surpassed a rather large number.

At museums around the world, I am not only allowed, but encouraged, to touch the art.

I am pleased, but more so, satisfied.

meanwhile… I will submit the fervent prayer that, because you are my friends, and I really do care a great deal for you; all of you – even Peter R…. and, as a direct result of this, and other events and such matters, I’ll hope there is always a cold – icy cold – Fat Tire, Modelo Especial, or even a Doe Equis Amber (in a pinch) nestled in your cooler.

this, and all the victories, are ours, shared.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

Mexican Beer

October30

No doubt there once existed a truly Mexican style of beer, brewed in a tradition that, through centuries of trial and error, fine-tuned indigenous ingredients and local conditions into perfect harmony.

Unfortunately, we’ll never taste it.

Each and every invading force, from the Spanish conquistadors to Maximilian, apparently decided they could do better than what the locals were pouring. And perhaps as a result, we’ve been left with a grafting of someone else’s beer preference onto climate, soil and water conditions that never quite suited it.

So what?

Go with a Modelo Especial.

I understand this particular Blog post has little or no socially redeeming factors (other than historical and geographic facts as cited above).

However, there is a time and a place for a good beer.

And, a Modelo is best (and is) shared with special people.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
