Post-webhost Post

My old webhosting company kept getting more expensive and difficult to deal with, so I finally quit them.
Thus, I'm temporarily back on the old free Blogger setup, mainly just to park my domain while I regroup.

I'm currently trying to decide whether I should just put all my existing Drupal, Wordpress, and PHP website code back on another standard cPanel webhost, or...
take the time to set myself up in the cloud. (Likely Google, but possibly AWS or even Azure). Any suggestions?

Until that happens, I don't expect to be blogging much here, since I haven't even bothered to port over all the old blog posts from the last few years.

In conclusion: Stay tuned. Under construction. [insert img of construction guy shoveling] :)

In 2015, I "upgraded" this blog from BlogSpot to WordPress.

Now, http://veggietrails.robhowe.com is back on Google Blogger.

NCMA Trail and Village Deli

Nice weather this Saturday morning, so we decided to walk the North Carolina Museum of Art (NCMA) outdoors art trail.

We weren't smart enough to figure out the purpose of the "You're in the picture" exhibits.

The "Cloud Chamber for the Trees and Sky" was a cool experience.

There is usually a nice breeze across the open area where the larger exhibits are stationed.

After a long day hiking the trails we figured a visit to nearby Village Deli was in order. They have a number of tempeh-based entrees that are great. This time, we ordered a reuben (slightly too strong sauerkraut), and a Philly sub. The crinkle-cut fries and coleslaw are awesome sides. Quite filling.

Asheville Cabin Trip, July 2015

We rented a cabin near Brevard, NC for three nights with some friends (and their kids).
We were just outside of Pisgah National Forest.

Brevard is less than an hour south of Asheville, where there's always plenty to do (and eat)...

More details.

BurgerFi in N. Cary

Only one choice for vegetarian fare at the chain BurgerFi:
the quinoa burger

Overpriced and overly greasy (the french fries are done in peanut oil). Add a milkshake if you're needing to meet your health insurance deductible this year.
We made the mistake of ordering the large fries (not the bucket, just large), but it was still too much.

We survived, and it was all quite edible, but I think it'll be awhile before we gorge on burgers & fries again.
