The Unsinkable brian cork™

Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

the continuing adventures of Rowdy!


Rowdy is now twelve weeks old, and has become a critical part of the brian cork experience at our offices in Alpharetta.

Rowdy is a Big Boy!

Rowdy is a Big Boy!

Unlike most Rhodesian Ridgbacks (but, certainly like any Cork), he greets all visitors with cautious optimism.

He is projected to hit 85lbs to 95lbs.

He will also bless you with mangled shoe laces or tassels (this reflecting my own disdain for the corporate uniform) with no hint of prejudice for black or brown leather. It should also be noted that he demonstrates nothing short of total dominance over his “boofy” (stuffed German Shepherd, naturally).

Each morning, after his “other business”, he eagerly breaches all portals to gain entry. He then snatches up his boofy for a quick and frantic scouting of the premises before settling in at my feet for a days work (and periodic play at any given opportunity).

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

brian-and-rowdy-0426092I promise to surrender much grimmer and thought-provoking fare shortly (possibly even later today!).

But, in the mean time, a picture of me and Rowdy. Just in case it’s not clear, Rowdy is the Rhodesian Ridgeback, and it’s me, the lucky fellow, holding him.

It was decided at only the last minute not to use a body-double or stand-in for myself.

This particular shot taken just after he (Rowdy, not me) was a really “good boy”. These are heady days.

Rowdy is going on eleven weeks now.

And, I realize we should change the flora in that forlorn appearing pot.

It was a better than usual weekend. I am very grateful for that.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

Rowdy is sleeping


rhodesian-ridgeback-9-weeksThis is Rowdy sleeping under my desk.

Considering how much growing he has done in the past two weeks, he needs, and does a lot of this.

He is about ten weeks old now.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

It’s amazing what changes a week can bring.

Three more weeks until Rowdy comes home.

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.
