The Unsinkable brian cork™

Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

just so you know: consider the maah daah mountain Bike trail


you likely have not lived (the way I like to) until you have faced and traversed the Maah Daah Hey Trail found in the rugged bad-lands of North Dakota.

this is one thirty six (136) miles that stretches up-and-over craggy bentonite cliffs, across “flowy” sections of prairie, and right through gorgeous aspen groves that make you understand what fresh air really does for your senses.


that’s not our video. but, the point is ably made.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

My friend William “Bill” Wallace, and yes, he is my dear friend, has asked that I summit Mt. Rainier with him.

We were at Hudson Grill in Alphartetta. Certainly, there were spirits involved.

…I’ll wager of several varieties.

I’ve said yes. And, our goal is for June 2010.

There will be updates. Indeed. And, this story promises to be naught less than epic, to be sure.

Training begins, in earnest, December.

The mountain beckons. But, it’s friendship, and the promise of high adventure, that’s the beacon.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

I am experimenting with this Blogging template offered by WordPress.

However, I am confounded by some technical concerns – not the least of which all of my postings are appearing in bold type.

In the event you are concerned that I have neglected to investigate “settings”, I did, and to no avail. The option to set such mundane things as “font type” – or, perhaps more useful, warnings such as:

“beware noble and brave adventurer there be perilous settings that lay ahead”

…are not to be found.

Any thoughts out there around a solution for this dilemma might be greatly appreciated. I only say “might” in the event someone is rude or the insidious “they” choose this inopportune time to implement some sinister plan to hijack this Blog as a vehicle to take control of our government (given it’s greatly evident influence in global matters).


I sent this message to both WordPress support and the team that actually created Andreas09 (this very template):


I would like to change my WordPress template to Andreas09 (actually, I have done that very thing). However, entire postings appear in bold font, even though this is not often my intent. Do you happen to know if this is a known problem? Or, am I singled out, and otherwise cursed?”

This is, indeed, gripping stuff.  So, you might want to stay tuned and pay close attention.

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.
