Welcome to the New Blog!

Well, I never thought it would happen, but perhaps hell froze over, or at least it got real chilly down around Dante town, because it seems I have broken down and decided to do a blog. It wasn’t easy. I resisted as long as possible. While I love to write, and love the gift of gab as much as anyone this side of the Blarney Stone, I just couldn’t bring myself to write a blog...for several reasons. 1) I just didn’t think I had anything to say in blog format. 2) I felt whatever time I had to write could be better spent working on something more important than a blog; i.e. a script, or a story, or something to further my writing career. And 3) Even though I’m a ham, and often the guy with the proverbial lampshade on his head at a party, I am also somewhat shy. What if you don’t like my poor little bloggy?

What changed my mind?  Food.

Yes, I love to cook, and I love to eat, and of late it seems I can’t resist posting pictures of whatever I’m cooking on Facebook. Also I've been reading and enjoying several excellent food blogs in the last few months.  All these things have congealed in my head and made me realize I finally had something to blog about.

And so here is my little contribution to the cacophony that is the ‘blog-o-sphere.’ (Wow, never thought I’d say ‘blog-o-sphere’ in my I’ve gone and said it twice)  It’ll be a little bit cooking, a little bit eating. A little bit wining, a little bit dining. A little bit country, a little bit rock and roll.

And since all blogs seem to need a cute, whimsical little name; I give you, ‘An Eat’n Man.’ (Apologies to Jethro Bodine). I hope you’ll enjoy it.

More to come....
