So completely unrelated but I got excited about an email this morning I received from my good friends the Beastie Boys (Not really good friends but I wish). Any ways if you are one of the faithful you would know they have been digitally remastering their albums and are doing a bunch of festivals, etc. this summer. Any ways I got the following in the email this morning…

There is nothing quite as American as hot dogs and moustaches. Some of you might say this time of year, what about baseball? To which I say baseball is boring, especially in portland with no Major League team. Any ways back to the point. I am quite a fan of hot dogs. The problem is I do not have much of a broad experience with them. I relish (see what I did there?) my monthly visits to Costco for the amazing buck fifty dog and soda. It is extra good when I remember to grab a thing of Saurkraut from the counter. Other than that I am pretty much limited to sporting events and family BBQs.
So by now you are probably thinking if he has no experience why is he talking about this? Well to point you in the right direction. Mr. Bryan Free has a little blog aptly named Hotdog is my co pilot. He doesn’t only write about hot dogs but has started a Weiner in Review series (I decided to not use weiner in my post title for obvious reasons). The rest of his blog is pretty amusing too except one post discussing some IT issue with networks and stuff, a little of topic my friend.
So any ways, short story long, hot dogs are american like moustaches, read bryan’s blog, enjoy.
I am happy to say that after a long hiatus, yetep.blogspot.com is back in action. It is now aptly named “Half Mooned Blogging” and is written by one of our own, Mike “the Minstrel” Peterson. His latest post is an intriguing picture story of his moustached trip to our nation’s capital. Check it out!
