Michael Rose

Michael, please. Not Mike. I was born and raised in Chicago. Even though I have not lived in the “Big City” since 1992, I still consider myself a Chicagoan (Go Bears!). Other than listening to music, I love to cook. Most weekends you can find me in my kitchen creating something. Nothing fancy, just something out of the ordinary. If you check out my blogs I will occasionally post a recipe I have created. Of course, I had to wire speakers in to my kitchen so I can have music playing while I create. Preferably some Jazz selections – Stanley Turrentine, Charlie Haden, Vince Guaraldi, and the like. When I am not cooking, you can either find me curled up on the couch watching a movie (Blues Brothers, Mr. Holland’s Opus, Goodfellas, Casino), or in my car just driving around.

Pinochole and Bridge – Does Anybody Play These Games Anymore?

I was watching a movie from the 60s recently where the lead character was about to get together with her friends during the afternoon to play Bridge. This is a scenario I rarely (if ever) see in movies anymore, nor do I see this in real life. Which begs the question:

Does anybody play Bridge anymore?

Double Decker Gazebo – Unique To This Area? Could Be

Over the weekend my girlfriend and I took a drive through Pike County, Illinois. We were on our way home when she said "I have never seen Hull or Kinderhook." She had seen the signs from the expressway, and was curious.

So off we go through Hull and Kinderhook.
