Fun Fact/Tip/Anecdote/Favorite Product

As a Texan expatriate, Brian never tires of Tex-Mex, can’t get enough real barbeque (mesquite-smoked brisket), and hates the world for taking Blue Bell away from him. (Who does that?!) He’s also a big fan of good books and movies (great stories, really), history (all of it), rodeo, V8-powered cars and trucks, fighter aircraft, Tony Romo, Cooper Stuff, great music, and a few other odds and ends.
