About Me

brc about me photo

Hi I’m Steve.  My family and I live in Michigan.  These are my stories, thoughts, feelings, anecdotes… a lot of it is funny… seriously!  Some of it I think is funny, but you might not.  Some of it is real serious-like but not much.  I try to keep it light-hearted.  Let’s just say it’s a little bit Garrison Keillor, a little bit George Carlin, a little bit Dr. Seuss.

Thanks for stopping by… hope you have some fun on Brown Road!

    I just found your blog and it is quite entertaining 🙂
    Keep posting


    • Dear Steve,
      I literally grew up on Brown Road, on the outskirts of a small town in rural upstate NY – dairy farm country. I am a Silicon Valley success story these days but still love the scent and sight of an old worn barn coat.

      I’ll be reading more of your blog. Thank you,
      🙂 Mira A.

  2. I am looking forward to your posts!
    We moved to the country about 3,4 months ago…. and i have fallen completely head over heels in love with it. We still see city everyday (work and school), but we go home to a holiday.
    And yes, we too have goats (very naughty), sheep and a pig called Henry.

  3. Hey “bokkie”, thanks for all the nice replies. Funny, we also have adopted two goats recently also – back in late Fall, from a farm where my daughter rides horses, and althought they cam pre-named, one is actually named “Naughty”!! The other is named Heath. No pigs or sheep… yet. Maybe a horse in the future. Have a few post ideas about the goats!

  4. I see you are live in the country; however, the real question is, do you hunt? 🙂 Hope you and your family enjoy every minute in Southwest Michigan!

    • Hi! No, I’m not a hunter, lots of my friends are but it’s never been my thing. I’d happily sit around a hunting lodge with some friends over a few beers but that’s about it. I like to fish occasionally. Hunting is huge around here though, especially deer hunting season of course, like a federal holiday… lol… people always used to say, never buy a car that was built during deer season… because all the regular, reliable employees would be gone those two weeks!!!

  5. Hi Steve,
    I like the tone of the blog. Glad you found me and that we’ve connected. I play guitar too. I’ve still got my original guitar from ’96. . .

    take care,

  6. I am glad I found your blog 🙂 I won’t ever be freshly pressed either …your blog on that was hilarious!! Look forward to reading more…ttfn, Donna.

  7. Hi Steve,
    It’s not FP, but I left you something over at my place

  8. Just started reading your blog and wanted to say hi. I’m originally from southeast Michigan, moved away 9 years ago 🙂

  9. Steve, would love to have you write a post for The Write On Project. Next topic is “Guilt”, something you’ve probably never felt in your parenting career, right? 🙂 Here’s the link: http://thewriteonproject.wordpress.com/participate/
    Let me know what you think, or just do it! Lovin’ your site, your style, and your vibe. Glad to have connected.


  10. I’m absolutely LOVING your blog! It’s such a fun, lighthearted read. AND educational! I mean, I just learned I’m developing BOOBS. But I can’t talk now – I have to go check my site stats for the 846th time (lol).

    i like your blog with plenty of content etc. i hope you don’t mind me saying but , i think you should add the ” read more ” button to your posts it saves visitors scrolling for ever if they like what they are reading they will click the button and read the rest , you can see it in my blog and most others . your posts don’t have categories and you should bring the amount of categories and tags up to a limit of 9/10 the search engines look for both , harry

  12. Hi Steve:

    I’m adding some new folks to my blogroll tomorrow in honour of my one year “blogiversary.” May I add you to “He Said”? Thanks.

    Best of luck sir!

  34. I am an aspiring country inhabitant just waiting for the first chance to leave the big city and so glad to have found your blog to give me that extra incentive!

  35. Hi Steve,
    Would you be willing to participate in something we are doing for Susie Lindau on Friday morning? I am contacting as many of her followers as possible. My thought is that we all post on our own blogs on Friday with the same title, “Susie Strong”. The content would say something simple like, We are thinking of you. I haven’t known Susie for long but this blogging world is such a family. I thought it would be nice for her to see this message from as many of us as possible. Her husband is going to be updating us after her surgery. He can tell her or she can see it once she is up to it. Are you in? Thanks, Maria aka brickhousechick

  36. “… a lot of it’s funny …seriously”
    Great way to be introduced to you and your work.
    Best wishes.

  41. Hey:) Sounds nice, writing a book for children. Dr. Seuss sure knows what he`s talking about:)

  42. If I lived on a farm, I would want some goats. 🙂

  43. You had me at Carlin and Seuss. After years plying the oceans of the world, my sweetie and I came to shore and settled in the Pacific Northwest, less than an hour from Puget Sound, snuggled up against the edges of the Cascade Mountains. Looking forward to reading more.
