Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

brian's new Buddy!


Many of you read my post: Sammy: The best argument I ever knew for Dogs in Heaven.

That story has now been viewed over one million (1,000,000) times. And, it has apparently circled the globe repeatedly having been passed from one dog-friend enthusiast to another via email.

Thanks for that.


We went and visited CeCe and her people (Dave and Kelly) yesterday.  CeCe is a four year old Rhodesian Ridgeback that is expected to give birth to six little mighty champions February 14th (perfect).

This picture is of a Ridgeback puppy at four months.

At about two yeas, he can start running with me.

You need to know there is significant debate around the naming of this particular Ridgeback.

Thoughts and suggestions include, but are not linited to: Achilles, Artemis (my favorite /1), Dude, Mondo, “Mr. Tinkles” (a delicious absurdity. Haley Anne has mused: “how could you EVER get mad at a large dog named Mr. Tinkles?”), Ranger, Telemachus (from Homer’s Odyssey /2) and, ZimBob.

So, lets fire up a poll…

Brian’s Ridgeback should be named:

Feel free to comment with additional suggestions.  The winner gets a cases of Modelo Especial.

By the way…  I probably need a truck now (and, it will come in handy for soccer any way).  So, more about that later.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

1/ Artemis was King Leonidas’ loyal captain and friend in the movie The 300. Not historically accurate.  But, cool nonetheless.

2/ Telemachus (also transliterated as Telemachos or Telémakhos; literally, “far-away fighter”) is a figure in Greek mythology, the son of Odysseus and Penelope, and a central character in Homer‘s Odyssey. The first four books in particular focus on Telemachus’s journeys in search of news about his father; they are, therefore, traditionally accorded the collective title the Telemachy.


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.
