Look Into My Eyes

I got this email from my mother when I was out in NY this past weekend with some advice. I always enjoy these. I hope you do too.

Subject: take good care of eyes..

We used to use computer a lot, I remembered the common sense
1. We need to off-computer every hour, go walk or do something else so that you won’t stair at screen for so long to let your eyes have good rest.
2. See something green (tree, grass)
3. Eat carrot or food good for eyes
4. Have good light when read the book
5. Do not read book while you lie down or sleep that’s will hurt your eyes

Dad, please correct me if I were wrong. Maybe we should get tips from eye Dr.

Love mom

FYI, I had lots of carrots for dinner and hung out on the porch checking out green stuff tonight. NY was awesome, but I love SF. Photos to come in a later post.

Third Times A Charm


This year’s wasn’t that different from past years’ escapes (2007, 2008). I didn’t finish faster than last year, but I’m happy coming in at ~46 min.

A few things different about this year:
– I didn’t swim with the South End Row Club. Instead, I did the Escape from the Rock event.
– It was my first water start. In the past, we would jump from the boat and start swimming. Today, we jumped in, lined up behind kayaks, and then started with a blowhorn. Much more intense…
– My first year not swimming alone! Kahn blew my time out of the water, finishing in 37 min. Nice swim man. Let’s do it all over again.

Thanks Mike and Natalie for the support. Sad I missed you guys at the finish line… probably better you missed my heavy breathing and goofy, slightly oversized wetsuit.

Project Porch Bench Complete

The Tanaka brothers really outdid themselves. Project Porch Bench has exceeded all of my expectations and the back porch has officially been upgraded with one badass, custom-made piece of wood work. If anyone is looking for custom made wood furniture, I have the team for you. Also, If you have been looking for an outdoor bench and would like your own Eiki Tanaka original, don’t hesitate to call me.

More bench porn to come. My connection here is pretty sucky…

UPDATE: Check out some hot bench pics here.
