As has been my practice in recent years, I have neglected this blog lately. I’m not really sure how or why my life has changed so much this year, but it sure has. To sum the events of late, I interviewed for a job as a coffee roaster at Green Mountain. I came across as a jerk and, subsequently, did not get offered a job that I was perfect for. Truth is, I could not have accepted it anyway, which was part of the reason for my jerkish behavior. I did, however, accept a job as packaging manager of Upland Brewing in Bloomington. In the mean time, the company I worked for nearly all my life, offered me a job in Louisville, Ky. It was too promising to turn down, so I took the position, and now I live in Kentucky. I feel like a “sell out.” I’ve been here since April 30th; my wife also took a job with the company and moved down this past Saturday. My short term as a bachelor is over!
I had every intention of forgetting this blog permanently; after all, what do I have to say? For that matter, aren’t blogs rather passe? Well, since I enjoy writing for writing’s sake, I decided to fire up the laptop and go at it again. Living in a new city gives me some new opportunities to explore. Maybe I will share them here. For example:
My favorite motorcycle shop is in Louisville: Commonwealth Motorcycles.
Two of my favorite coffee shops are here: Quills & Sunergos.
I am also discovering some great places to eat, such as Wild Eggs.
I’m not a fan of donuts, but I do like Nord’s Bakery. In fact, I could not resist trying their famous “maple & bacon” donut. Not bad!
