What? What? Putt-putt!

Because I suck at real golf

Golf is a game that is played by kingpins, politicians and the elite of society. I am none of those things. I can hit golf balls and enjoy smacking a bucket of balls at the driving range. The issue is, despite being actually able to hit the balls, there's no rhyme or reason (at least that I can see) to which direction the balls fly or how far they fly.

I don't see the fun in walking halfway across creation chasing a little ball that I hardly have any willful control over. So for me, it's mini-golf all the way.

Maybe it's the ADHD, maybe it's the simple fact that I have the priorities of a 12-year-old boy, or maybe I just like windmills more than an educated adult should.

Grillin' like a villain

Now's the time for outdoor cooking, eating and general tomfoolery
Memorial Day Weekend marked the unofficial beginning of summer. We all know the calendar claims summer begins in late June, but we have to get cracking to take advantage of this short but wonderful season. And that means breaking out the grill.

Now, in fairness, I don't actually "break out" my grill, because in a fit of stubborn pique, I keep my grill on my porch all winter and serve up a steak in the bleak cold of January just to make myself feel better. However, some people do slap on a cover and haul their grill into the garage or shed for the winter months.

Putting the treat' in Trick or Treat

Local baker offers Halloween candy-inspired cupcakes

BANGOR - Remember the times you dressed up as your favorite ghoul and scampered door to door collecting dozens, if not hundreds of sugary treats from neighbors and friends? Good times. But there comes a time in every person's life when they have to hang up the candy bags and start dishing out the treats instead of receiving them.

But Nicole King of Cherry Acres Bakery is bringing back the treats for adults - in cupcake form.

The Mary Sue

There are endless geeky ways to waste time on the internet. But for some odd reason, geeking out is stereotypically a boys club. Any lass who has been outed as a femme on an anonymous message board usually feels the classless sting of little boys who still act like they're in the 'cooties' phase.

But there is a geeky site that knows that there is an audience for the geek girl: the Mary Sue ( You'll be directed to all the very best geek blogs, videos and articles, especially if there is a feminine streak involved.

This doesn't mean the website is all for girls - boys are certainly allowed. But it's also to give gals a place to relax and discuss their geekery in a friendly setting.

Tales from Misery Ridge' a joy to read

Maine is a state for outdoorsmen, with a wilderness that still remains largely untamed. But not everyone has a chance to experience its natural grandeur and wild places.

Paul Fournier weaves his experiences as a Maine Guide, bush pilot and public information officer for the Department of Maine Fish and Wildlife into charming tales of what Maine's out-of-the-way woods, streams and lakes has to offer in 'Tales from Misery Ridge' (Islandport Press, $16.95).

His stories evoke stunning images of Maine's outdoors and the fun, adventure, humor and danger of enjoying time in them. One of Fournier's greatest strengths, something that seems to carry over from his work as a guide, is his willingness to teach and share his understanding and love for the Maine wilderness.

Slice of life

October is pizza month

Fall is here. Kids are back to school, leaves are changing color, families are gearing up for Halloween. One aspect of the season is oft overlooked and that is the fact that October is Pizza Month.

This savory pie has been an American staple for time immemorial. Whether you are watching a football game on television; celebrating a milestone in your life, such as a birthday, graduation or job promotion; or even if you simply want a quick and simple dinner, pizza has it all: gooey cheese, hot savory sauce, and the combinations of toppings are limited only by availability and a good flexing of your culinary imagination. The bold can enjoy fare that is adventurous and delicious - but there's also nothing wrong with some tried and true combinations.

Around the country the pizza can define the area. There's Chicago deep dish pizza, which needs utensils, and the famous New York style, where you fold the thin crust in half before heartily enjoying (I assume New Yorkers heartily enjoy pizza).

The internet is where we waste all of our time. One place you can be sure to siphon off hours at a time is Reddit - the front page of the Internet.

This is a time waster of epic proportions, mostly because you can tailor your experience to your specific interests. Are you a gamer? Into politics? Religious? Atheist? A parent? Into some sick fetish? You can seriously find a subreddit for you. And if you can't, you can make your own.
