MODELO CITIZEN

If you want a refreshing lager, 4.4% alcohol, you might want to try Modelo Especial.  A Mexican beer, quite a good seller in the US, and greatly appreciated in its country of origin, Modelo Especial brings a fresh crisp taste to your palate.

Stock the fridge, bachelor.  Your pals that are fans of lagers are going to love this.

 

SLICE OF LIFE

Depending where you live, you can either get great pizza, (New York) or some franchise chain produced crap that’s all dough and no show. (Most other places).

There is of course the ubiquitous frozen pizza, and there are a few decent brands out there: Red Baron, DiGiorno, and Newman’s Own, to name several.

What’s a really easy bachelor efficient means of cooking the decent frozen kind? Set it and forget it until its “ring” time?

I swear by the Nutrichef pizza maker.  Finest kind, and it makes the frozen stuff taste better than most of the “freshly made” gunk you are going to get at the local strip mall parlor.

It’s inexpensive, works great, and it doesn’t require a whole lot of effort on your part. Buy it and try it.

FAN CLUB

Summertime and the living is freakin’ warm to say the least.  Nobody wants to be sweating in their otherwise way cool bachelor pad, and this is where a handy dandy item known as the air circulation fan comes in.

By itself it works well when the mercury hasn’t reached to the moon, and in tandem with an air conditioner, it’s just what the iceman ordered.

Make Up Your Mind

Here is an edited version of an article of mine that first appeared on jamesbondlifestyle.com

THE BOND BRAIN—THUNDERBALL

 I have selected perhaps the only passage in the novel THUNDERBALL wherein we get a glimpse of the Bond Brain.

Here’s the quote from a conversation Bond has with Domino, (the sister of the pilot killed by Largo’s men) during dinner:

“I make up my own mind about men and women. What’s the good of other people’s opinions?”

Each one of us has unique experiences . Each one of us has a different degree of intelligence, tolerance, intolerance, passion, or sangfroid.  Given the uniqueness of our makeup, Bond’s advice makes a great deal of sense. Make up your own mind, and don’t be overly influenced by the opinions of others.

Perhaps you are in sales.  Other salespeople have opined that Company X is a bad prospect, or a tough sale, or some other negative thing.  Yet, the unique you may feel differently, and obtain a different result than that predicted by your peers.

With respect to a bachelor’s potential romantic partners, same thing.  One man’s beauty is another man’s stimulus to a lifetime of celibacy.  One man may like the adventurous type, and another the homebody. Neither are wrong. Neither are right.  It is an individual taste matter, and as long as you are acting in accordance with your own unique set of parameters, you are doing fine.

There are of course times when other people’s opinions do count.  Politics for example.  Here we can count on them usually being wrong.  Consumer marketing is another arena where the opinions of others are paramount.  What does that lead to?  Budweiser beer and McDonalds.

So whether it’s business, booze or your choice of bordello, keep your own counsel, and remember the above words of  Bond.

You will be a better bachelor for it.

 

ON THE THRONE

Ah, a man and his easy chair.  

They are often inseparable.

After a hard day’s work, the bachelor settles in on his own home throne, lights a pipe or cigar, and contemplates the meaning of life…or at least has a beer and binge watches Baywatch reruns.

The chair dates back to ancient Egypt, and the recliner was first reclined upon by Napoleon III.

The king of recliners is of course the La-Z-Boy, which in its upholstered form, was patented in 1930.
