Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

He said it, not Me

August10
This from the inestimable Dr. Anthony Mari, who happens to be a GREAT chiropractor, proactive health aficionado, and a hearty and ferocious entrepreneur…

The timing is of consequence as I am looking to buy a vineyard, and I recently discovered that Publix is carrying Fat Tire beer.

To wit:

“To my friends who enjoy a glass of wine… And those who don’t and are always seen with a bottle of water in their hand.

As Ben Franklin said:

In wine there is wisdom,

In beer there is freedom,

In water there is bacteria.

In a number of carefully controlled trials, Scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 litre of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. Coli) – bacteria Found in faeces (poo).

In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poo..

However, We do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process

of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.

Remember:

Water = Poo,

Wine = Health

Therefore, it’s better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of shit.

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information…

I’m doing it as a public service!

CHEERS !!!

Anthony”

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.

boat story #4

July21

Friends of ours recently purchased a boat. Their youngest daughter happens to be best friends with my little Emma Jo. In short order we were invited to join them at Lake Lanier for a weekend.

That was fun. A lot of fun.

Emma Jo wanted a floating device that could be pulled from behind their boat (they are quite good friends of ours and such liberties are encouraged).

With the device that offered the best and most “whoo hoo” value with the requisite opportunities (with the pull-rope, for good measure) in hand, Joanne suggested we might want our own boat at some point.

So … I can now add the story of how I bought a boat to go with a water toy to my inventory.

This is a good picture of our boat. However, the people in it are not me, friends, nor family. Loads of other pictures are forthcoming, to include images of real people. These will likely include images of me with a smile splayed broadly across my sunburned visage as I fiercely grip the steering wheel and an icy cold Fat Tire (just in the correct combination, order – and, with due considerations of good judgment and safety).

Rowdy, our fourteen month old Rhodesian Ridgeback sits right at the front, his ears struck out like wings, as he barks and “boofs” furiously into the roaring wind, advising all that care to listen (and others that have little choice) that they are near “his boat”, on “his lake, with “his people”. We can also take him to Sunset Cove where we beach the boat just outside of the Water Park where we have season passes. Hundreds of people already know Rowdy, and adore him (and understand that “no people food” allowed – even hotdogs). He is a good boy.

And, I already know that I both need, and want, a bigger boat. The tug with that is even more powerful than that of elite sports cars. I’d never have though that possible.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

bungie chords

July18

I am of the considered opinion that one can’t have enough bungie chords on-hand.

Especially if you have a boat.

I’m telling you… duct tape and bungie chords (just no duct tape on the boat). With that available, you are ready for almost anything, adventurous, or otherwise.

These guys are called: The Bungie Chords. This has naught to do with my boat, just to be clear. Or, stretchy and useful bungie chords, to be more clear. But, what the hell. And, I don’t want them on my boat, specifically.

Meanwhile, how many of you were aware that Publix was selling Fat Tire (its a beer), and did’t tell me?

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.
