Sic Semper Bitchez!

Congratulations to Associate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.


Texas Daughter

Funny the stuff that sticks with you.  Our daughter Mischa has a blog now and we’ve been checking it out and talking about how proud we are of her. She’s really become a bit of a Punk/fashionista and I wondered how exactly that happened as I’d always thought of her as my little tomboy.


Not so long ago we were riding around the Sierras in my truck listening to Pantera and the next thing I know, she has a husband, three kids, a mortgage and… turquoise hair.F68926DD-5106-40C1-961E-53B6D21C4DD5

How the heck did this happen?  Well through the wonders of YouTube, I’ve been able to go back to the exact moment when Mischa caught the “Wild Hair”.  She was maybe six or seven and we were watching Mary Chapin Carpenter and Shawn Colvin sing a Lefty Frizzell song on TV. ‘Shelly starts commenting on Colvin’s sun dress and combat boots. Soon, over her mother’s protestations she was rocking the same look. Viola! Coolest kid in the first grade.

Oh well, mama tried.

Remember The Alamo!


I love this picture! At the time it was taken, it was actually illegal to carry this type of knife in Texas. Bowie knives illegal… in Texas. Let that sink in for a minute.

Now in the photo above, please note the gentleman on the right. Note the absolute glee on his face and today, maybe let’s celebrate people with enough balls to override their brains when the occasion calls for it. Maybe also ponder the role such people play in securing the lofty concepts of freedom and liberty.

And speaking of Texans with balls, have you seen Taylor Sheridan’s 2016 masterpiece Hell Or High Water? Well I couldn’t think of a better day to watch it.

One Equals None

While I won’t loose any sleep over Alex Jones and other nutters getting their content yanked by YouTube censors, it does raise concerns.  You see nowadays, if an event, observation or occurance isn’t on YouTube… in the minds of many, it never happened/doesn’t exist.

Which brings me to InRange TV. Karl Kasarda along with his compadre Ian McCollum of Forgotten Weapons have also had some content pulled by YouTube recently and that is a shame because these are some thoughtful guys coming at things from different angles. They bring a healthy sense of humor along with a bit of soul as well.

I really admire how they have responded to the YouTube censorship issue. Resiliency and redundancy baby!  I have their BitChute link on my Sepulveda Approved blogroll but haven’t figured out how to embed BitChute video into WordPress yet so for now, check them out on YouTube below.

Best Served Cold

Spent a couple hours yesterday whipping up a batch of Sepulveda’s Revenge. I won’t say it’s the finest salsa on earth but it’s close enough. Down in San Diego there’s a little taco shop I frequented, they make the best salsa on earth as far as I know.

I used to pester them for the recipe but always just got a smile and a “no can do boss, top secret.” All I was ever able to finagle out of them was “Serranos” and that was only after I assured them I was moving hundreds of miles north of San Diego County.

Now the San Joaquin Valley has plenty of great Mexican food but no creamy green taco crack so I had to use the google and started messing up the kitchen and viola! Close enough for Rock & Roll.

No I’m not going to share my recipe because it’s not mine and that taco shop down in San Diego? They were just riffing on the original that comes from Austin, Texas!

My advice is to type “creamy green taco crack” into the google and start messing up your own kitchen.
