About Me

Here is a quick summary of who I am:

I think life is all about loving God and loving other people. I am married to the wonderful Pamela. I have a Ph.D. in horticulture, and I enjoy teaching plant science. I feel baseball is close to perfection; I am a Phillies fan. I am addicted to playing the guitar. I am fond of tennis. I watch the movie Zoolander frequently. My favorite seafood is a snorkeling cow (EDIT: As of January 2012 I have been eating–and enjoying–fish!). I am a Pennsylvanian living in California.

This is Me

    Hey I ran into this blog of yours because I suddenly felt like finding out all pringles flavors ever made. So I googled it and found your blog. Good job on it :) For the record, my favorite flavor is sour cream and onion…

    Cool site, love the info. I do a lot of research online on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks,

    A definite great read…:)

    Liked a lot your flavor rating chart.
    Great compilation and way to show your degree of involvement with Pringles.
    If you would like to try more flavors I can make it happen as I’m involved with Pringles flavor development. Just send me a message and we can talk more.

  8. I’m writing a post about shaped notes. May I link to your post?

  9. Hi Benjamin,
    I am the illustrator responsible for all the flavor spots on the cans.
    I found your evaluations spot on, and funny.

      I stopped by your website; I’ve always liked the graphics on Hidden Valley products, it’s very cool to see the sketches and development of product labels that I am familiar with.

    I googled up Red Pummelo & don’t know why I clicked on your blog. However, I’m glad I did. I saw these pummelo’s 2wks ago at the grocery store & since they were $2.99 (although I was fascinated with it) I chose not to buy. But, wella! This weekend they were $.99ea. So now I have my pummelo just waiting for me to cut it open. When I pass it buy on the kitchen counter I can’t help but pick it up and roll it around like a softball. I would like to use your explanation of the pummelo in our Family Ragazine(intended for family memebers only) & would like your permission to use your photo’s of this odd fruit. Coincidently, I’m reading the trilogy of “The Quilt” regarding the Old Amish & Mennonites. Clicking on your blog was meant to be. Thanks for the entertaining information.

    Hi! I found your blog looking for “hiking”. That’s all I typed. I relate to your love for baseball. It’s difficult to explain without divulging an awkward amount of information about myself, but to me baseball stands for freedom, sophistication and dreams. How about them apples (that counts as a horticulture-pun).
