Made a pitstop for a quick dinner at Season's 52 and grabbed a seat at the bar. We missed the Happy Hour by 30 minutes because it ends at 6:30 PM, but we got a menu and will probably return for that. But Season's 52 has great healthy options and all calories are listed on the menu. We started with some crab/shrimp stuffed mushrooms and I had an ahi tuna salad with mango and couldn't help but get the corn dish with prosciutto, Parmesan and garlic (YUM). There are plenty of wines by the glass, of which I tried two chardonnays and my husband an enjoyed an Old Fashioned made with Templeton Rye. Food was excellent and the service at the bar was awesome!!! Season's 52 also changes their menu based on seasonal options. Appetizers: $7-$10 Entrees: $18 - $35 Glasses of Wine: $8 - $19 Cocktails: $9 - $13 _____________________________________ #orlandoeats #bestfoodorlando #seasons52 #restaurant #dinnnereats #nomnomnom #healthychoices #grub #variety #seasonalmenu #orlando

          Use data to guide fertilizer application   

Feed the A zones plenty

Like most in my generation, I had 4-H and FFA projects, and from the very beginning I was blessed with a gilt that ended up being a very prolific sow. My sow produced huge litters and was the perfect mother — giving

up everything she had to her piglets until weaning (a much longer period than now).  For every litter, her body weight would plummet.

Our next evolution in raising pigs was to build our own feeding stalls. It was very preconfinement, but for me it was a huge improvement. The stalls allowed us to feed each sow uniquely. My sow with half the body weight of other less-productive sows could be given a double ration. Less-productive sows that towered over my sow received less food.

I’m sure some of you “old school” folks can connect my animal agriculture example with what’s going on in your fields. The areas in your fields that are consistently the highest yielding are just like my 4-H sow. They produce so much that they deplete their soil-supplied nutrient reserves. Your data and variable-rate technology allow you to feed those A zones a “double ration!”

Notice how this data table illustrates how the highest-yielding areas are lower in fertility. Use your yield data and fertility data to guide your applications. Don’t be afraid to feed your A zones plenty!

As women age into their 60s, I think there is a mindset among some, certainly in my circle, to equate being thin with youthfulness and appeal. And so we postpone eating to watch those calories, metabolism having slowed a long time ago. Unfortunately we now struggle with osteoporosis and other maladies because of our controlled eating habits. I have learned, and continue to need reminding, to eat and, most important, I have seen a return of energy levels to see me through the day. So thank you Anne for helping me to see that food is not the enemy.

          10 Things You Should Know About Steph and Ayesha Curry's Envy-Inducing Relationship   

Image Source: Getty / Johnny Nunez

Stephen and Ayesha Curry may be one of the NBA's most famous couples now, but back in the day they were just two teenagers brought together by their faith. Both devout Christians, the couple first met at their church youth group in Charlotte, NC - but it wasn't exactly love at first sight for the Canada native. "We were just kids," Ayesha told People in May. "He was the cute boy at church that all of the girls were obsessed with, so I made a generalization that maybe he wasn't for me." On the flip side, Steph harbored a crush. "I always had my eye on her, but I got a little shaken, for sure," he told Parents magazine back in June 2016. Here are more fun facts about Steph and Ayesha's slam-dunk romance.

  1. They reconnected a few years after their first meeting. Ayesha was acting and modeling in LA while Steph was playing basketball for Davidson College in North Carolina. The two met up in LA when he was in town for the ESPY Awards - Ayesha admitted that she "didn't know what the ESPYs were" and generally didn't know what Steph did at the time, which he revealed was "pretty refreshing."
  2. Ayesha originally wasn't too keen on dating an athlete, which is probably why she turned Steph down for a date at first. "My parents found this paper from my high school theater class where you had to write down what you wanted in a significant other," she told People. "At the bottom, it said, 'No athletes, because they're arrogant.'"
  3. Their first date was admittedly "cheesy." Ayesha finally agreed to go out with Steph after he reached out via Facebook. She picked him up (in a 1995 Astro van!) and they had a "cheesy" first date that included chai tea lattes and Marilyn Monroe impersonators on Hollywood Boulevard. Steph even spent all the money he had on him to impress Ayesha by purchasing a pair of Oakley sunglasses. Despite her "no athlete" rule, Steph's personality softened her up. "He was so funny and silly. . . the absolute opposite of what I thought he was going to be," she said.
  4. And their first kiss was reminiscent of a major movie. Steph and Ayesha officially began dating in August 2008. The couple had their first smooch in the driveway of Steph's parents' house in Charlotte. It happened "in the rain, like The Notebook."
  5. Three years later, Steph proposed to Ayesha in the same spot. "The plan was to act like we were going to a family cookout," he told Parents. "So we pulled up to the house, and I stopped in the middle of the driveway, got down on my knee, and went into my spiel. Little did I know the whole family was looking out the window, videotaping the moment."

A post shared by Ayesha Curry (@ayeshacurry) on

  1. They were married young. Steph and Ayesha got married in 2011 when they were 23 and 22, respectively. Of their decision, Steph has said, "I knew I had found the right woman, and I wanted to start a life with her."
  2. Ayesha had to put her acting plans on hold. "Shortly after we got married, I found out we were pregnant with [their daughter] Riley. She was a borderline honeymoon baby," Ayesha said. "That became my next move. I struggled with that for a while."
  3. They have matching tattoos. Ayesha reportedly got the ink first, and Steph followed with a tattoo of two arrows pointing at each other. "This signifies that the past is behind us and the future is in front of us, so we stay in the middle, in the moment," he has said. They even have a pregame ritual: "I smack my tattoo and she does the same."
  4. In 2015, they expanded their family. Steph and Ayesha welcomed their second daughter Ryan in July 2015, and the little one made an adorable public appearance with her sister at the NBA Championships in June 2017.
  5. But they're taking a breather before growing even more. On having a third baby, the couple has "agreed to press pause and then reassess in a year or so." Ayesha has said of Steph: "He'd have three more kids right now if he could."

          Reading the Office of Legal Counsel on Emoluments: Do Super-Rich Presidents Get a Pass?    


I wrote last November that the Foreign Emoluments Clause “is on its face a national security provision designed to the protect the country from officers too enmeshed with foreign interests.” If the Justice Department’s recent court filing is to be believed, that protection is exceedingly limited. This new position marks a decisive break from the more conscientious approach long espoused by both the Comptroller General and the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC).

At the heart of the emoluments controversy is President Trump’s refusal to liquidate his business holdings. He has instead maintained ownership of the Trump Organization, a multibillion-dollar umbrella company with thousands of domestic and international investments, and placed the assets in a revocable trust managed by his sons Donald Trump, Jr. and Eric Trump. Trump now faces three lawsuits alleging that he is profiting from his business empire in violation of the Constitution. Three days after his inauguration, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a government accountability watchdog group, filed the first suit in the Southern District of New York. This month, two more complaints were filed by the attorneys general of Washington D.C. and Maryland and 196 congressional Democrats, in federal district courts in Maryland and the District of Columbia, respectively.

All three suits center on the meaning and scope of the Foreign Emoluments Clause, which provides that “no person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept any present, Emolument, Office or Title of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign state” (U.S. Const. art. I, § 9, cl. 8). Citing Trump's business dealings with state governments and federal agencies, such as its lease on the Old Post Office Building that now houses the Trump International Hotel, two of the suits also allege violations of the Domestic Emoluments Clause. This provision applies specifically to the president and provides that he shall receive “for his Services” a fixed compensation during his tenure and not “any other Emolument from the United States, or any of [the states]” (U.S. Const. art. II, § 1, cl. 7).

Serious procedural challenges like standing notwithstanding, given the House and Senate’s failure to address head-on the risks posed by Trump’s financial conflicts pose, the lawsuits could prove important in forcing a much-needed conversation: Is Trump taking in profits in violation of the Constitution? And just as critically, are future presidents entitled to pull a Trump—or does the Constitution dictate that they, like Jimmy Carter, must sell their family peanut farms as a condition of taking office?

No Article III court has ever rendered an opinion on how either Emoluments Clause should be interpreted, though the Supreme Court has offered interpretations of the term “emoluments” as it appears in Foreign Emoluments Clause-related statutes periodically enacted by Congress since 1881. Because of the limited judicial precedent, the internal memoranda from the Comptroller General and the Office of Legal Counsel that have been made public over the years are among the most important sources of guidance we have on emoluments issues. And though these memoranda do not directly address the question posed by the Trump business empire, making some amount of inference and legwork necessary, in critical respects they quite clearly contradict the sweeping defense that the Justice Department put forward this month in its 70-page motion to dismiss the CREW case against Trump.

The key issue in these suits—once you get behind a set of justiciability questions that may prove dispositive—is what constitutes an emolument (though with respect to the Foreign Emoluments Clause there’s also some disagreement about what kind of entity constitutes a “foreign state”). In plain English, we are looking at an exotic presidential twist on the biggest and oldest challenge to enforcing any anticorruption law: What counts? Do the forbidden “emoluments” cover only goodie boxes, blatant quid pro quo arrangements, and employment-related compensation? Or are the profits that Trump enjoys by way of his business transactions also prohibited when they come from foreign states and domestic government entities? And if the latter, more expansive definition is the appropriate one, are the profits prohibited only when the take is in excess of  “fair-market-value”—and if so, does that definition serve as a meaningful limitation when at issue are luxury goods whose value or sales may be inflated by the fact that Trump is president and the products are prominently branded with his name?

Predictably, the dispute has taken the form of a battle for the original meaning of “emoluments.” An array of historical materials support both a limited and broad definition. The two possible interpretations are well summed up by the Oxford English Dictionary, which provides two definitions dating back to the Founding: “1. Profit or gain arising from station, office, or employment . . . . 2. Advantage, benefit, comfort.”

The Justice Department, like Trump’s lawyers at Morgan Lewis, latches onto the first definition  to argue that “the Emoluments Clauses apply only to the receipt of compensation for personal services and to the receipt of honors and gifts based on official position.” That is, President Trump is precluded only from receiving benefits in exchange for services provided to a foreign state in his official capacity as president, or—and this is crucial, given the subject matter of the OLC opinions—services provided “in a capacity akin to an employee of a foreign state.”

The plaintiffs in the three suits, on the other hand, argue for the much more expansive definition. Marshaling its own set of historical evidence, CREW asserts that emoluments are "anything of value, including money, permits, approvals, tax benefits, any other benefits, and anything else monetary or nonmonetary, regardless of whether it is given in exchange for goods or services, and regardless of whether it is part of a transaction at, above, or below market rates."

A close examination of the relevant Comptroller and OLC opinions reveals that the current Justice Department is reading the Emoluments Clauses too narrowly, while CREW and the other plaintiffs are reading them too broadly. None of the opinions approves the receipt of benefits that can even arguably be attributed to the prestige or influence conferred by an office, and together they do not support the Justice Department’s claim that presidents may, as a categorical matter, collect profits from business transactions with foreign entities and domestic government entities as long as fair value is extracted on both sides. But notwithstanding the plaintiffs’ hard pull in the other direction, the opinions also suggest that presidents may in limited cases accept certain fixed benefits—as I will explain, these might be pensions from the U.S. state that used to employ them or money damages from a foreign country against which, in a past life, they successfully won a judgment. The key is that those benefits cannot be subject to foreign or domestic government manipulation or adjustment in connection with the presidential office.

This happens to be a sensible position that accords with what the opinions repeatedly underscore as the purpose of the Emoluments Clauses and the ultimate touchstone for interpreting their meaning: “to prevent corruption and foreign influence” and to bar “payments which have a potential of influencing or corrupting the integrity of the recipient.”


Why Language About Emoluments Is Easily Misused

A threshold issue before turning to the OLC literature is the confusion created by cherry-picking historical materials without consideration of their factual context. For example, in its motion to dismiss, the Justice Department followed the lead of some scholars in pulling some Supreme Court language that suggests the term “emoluments” applies only to salary and other duty-related benefits. Most notably, in Hoyt v. United States, 51 U.S. 109 (1850), the Court defines emoluments as “every species of compensation or pecuniary profit derived for a discharge of the duties of office” (emphasis added).

But in Hoyt, the Supreme Court was specifically asked to decide what constitutes an “emolument of office” per a statute governing Treasury Department collectors in their official capacity; the case did not require the Court to consider or rule on the existence of emoluments of other kinds. This is a key point for purposes of properly construing any Comptroller or OLC opinion that cites Hoyt and regurgitates its definition of “emoluments.” These opinions, like Hoyt, have to be read with an eye to their facts: they do not assert that “emoluments” must derive directly from discharge of duty; rather, the kind of emoluments at issue in those opinions was the kind derived for discharge of duty. As a consequence, the reliance on Hoyt in these opinions does not serve as evidence of a limiting principle for emoluments in general.

In short, as pointed out by the plaintiffs and by assorted scholars, the proper question for purposes of discerning the historical scope of “emoluments” is not whether the term could be interpreted in a restricted way, to refer only to benefits derived from discharging the duties of an office, but whether it was necessarily so interpreted at the time the Emoluments Clauses were drafted. As John Mikhail has painstakingly documented, the answer is no—and we don’t have to look at secondary sources, however authoritative (e.g., Black’s Dictionary) to draw that conclusion. Consider, for example, some of the constitutions ratified during the first of two major waves of state constitution-making in the Founding decade. Several included “common benefits clauses” that used the word “emoluments” in a way that simply defies narrow interpretation. The Pennsylvania Constitution (1776) provides: “That government is, or ought to be, instituted for the common benefit, protection and security of the people, nation or community; and not for the particular emolument of advantage of any single man, family or sett [sic] of men, who are a part only of that community[.]” Very similar language appears in the Virginia (1776), Vermont (1777), and New Hampshire (1784) constitutions. Far more elaborate historical arguments demonstrating the broad uses of the term have been presented elsewhere: see here, here and here. The bottom line is that there is an abundance of primary Founding-era material making use of the broad definition of emoluments, so it is wrong to use language from fact-bound case law to assert that the term is an inherently limited one.


The Plaintiffs Define “Emoluments” Too Broadly

Does that mean, as plaintiffs assert, that all types of benefits conferred on the president by foreign countries and U.S. states are prohibited emoluments? According to the Comptroller and OLC opinions, clearly not.

A number of opinions explain that officers do not need to forego fixed benefits to which they are entitled for reasons manifestly unrelated to and uninfluenced by their office. This is a common-sense interpretation of the Clauses that avoids rigidity for rigidity’s sake, where denial of benefits would do nothing to serve the Clauses’ anti-corruption, anti-influence purpose.

For instance, the Comptroller and the OLC each independently concluded that President Ronald Reagan could collect ordinary retirement benefits from California, where he had served as the state governor, without violating the Domestic Emoluments Clause’s prohibition against the receipt of “emoluments” from a State. In its 1983 opinion, the Comptroller determined that President Reagan’s pension from California “cannot be construed as being in any manner received in consequence of his possession of the Presidency.” Coming to the same conclusion in its earlier 1981 opinion, the OLC also noted that “those [retirement] benefits are not emoluments in the constitutional sense” and their receipt does not “violate the spirit of the Constitution.” To support its reasoning, the OLC in turn relied on a 1964 opinion (not published) where it similarly decided the estate of President Kennedy was entitled to the naval retirement pay that had accrued during his presidency. Interpreting the Foreign Emoluments Clause “in the light of its basic purposes and principles,” it concluded he could receive payments to which he was entitled as a matter of law “prior to his taking office.”

The same principles support allowing officers to collect on certain kinds of money judgments, even from foreign powers. In a 1955 opinion, the Comptroller decided that an attorney in the Justice Department could receive a lump sum payment and lifetime annuity from the German government for his wrongful removal from the judgeship he held before he emigrated to the United States, as provided by German indemnification legislation. The Comptroller reasoned that those payments did not constitute emoluments from his former office, but rather “represent damages payable as a direct result of a moral and legal wrong.” Turning to its “spirit of the Constitution” analysis, the Comptroller had no trouble determining the payments were not problematic: they were “obviously . . . not intended to influence him as an officer of the United States,” were made under laws not specific to him, and were not payments voluntarily made by the German government but rather mandatory indemnification required by the Allied powers. In a 1954 opinion on the same matter, the OLC came to a slightly different place—the payments were not permitted to the extent they amounted to German retiree benefits—but like the Comptroller, it found that damages intended to redress injury were not prohibited emoluments.

Note what these opinions have in common: they generally allow the officer in question to collect payments or benefits that, patently, have nothing to do with and cannot possibly have been affected by his U.S. office. That 1983 Comptroller opinion put it best, and contains a line worth repeating: President Reagan was entitled to his pension because it “c[ouldn’t] be construed as being in any manner received in consequence of his possession of the Presidency.”

Applying this general rule, it makes sense that presidents are permitted to invest in U.S. Treasury bonds; and the rule also explains why wealth management solutions like blind trusts have long been accepted as workable resolutions to problems of conflict of interest. But it certainly doesn’t provide clearance for all profits derived from discretionary, “fair-market-value” transactions where the president is obviously and individually on one end of the sale.


The Justice Department Defines “Emoluments” Too Narrowly

A key move in the Justice Department’s brief is to rely heavily on a point of dubious significance: it asserts that “in every published OLC or Comptroller General opinion in which proposed conduct was determined to involve prohibited emoluments, the determination involved an employment relationship (or a relationship akin to an employment relationship) with the foreign government.”

If you think about it, there’s at least one common-sense explanation for the limited precedent: In general, the government employees on whose behalf these opinions were sought probably didn’t own hotel chains, lucrative licensing agreements, or hundreds of trademarks from which they derived significant foreign-based or domestic government-based income. Their thing of value, as civil servants, was their skill set, and thus the relevant question was whether they were constitutionally permitted to lend out that skill set to foreign governments or organizations with foreign state ties for payment.

A 1986 OLC opinion written by then-Deputy Assistant Attorney General Samuel Alito cuts against the assertion that whether the profit in question is derived from employment or personal services should be, by itself, dispositive. There, Alito determined that a NASA employee could indeed accept a fee for reviewing a PhD candidate's thesis for an Australian university. To get to this conclusion, Alito made two significant moves. First, uncertain as to whether a public university should be regarded a "foreign state," Alito instead decided to turn to the features of the proposed consultancy and consider whether they "raise[d] the kind of concern . . . that motivated" the prohibition’s enactment. This marks a functional, purpose-driven approach to the question of permissible benefits. Second, he suggested the following facts weigh against finding the fee a prohibited emolument: (1) the NASA scientist was not selected because of his position with the U.S. government, (2) the fee was an ordinary amount given the service to be rendered, (3) there was no reason for the officer to have "direct contact" with the university officials, and (4) the consultancy was "limited both in time and in substantive scope," and no "continuing relationship" was anticipated.

Note that the fact the scientist would be acting in an employment or personal services capacity did not automatically render the payment an emolument. This is the key takeaway from this opinion, and it is at odds with the Justice Department’s claim that employment is the make-or-break issue when it comes to determining whether a benefit or payment is an emolument. Second, consider the implications of the first and fourth points Alito highlighted. The scientist’s selection for the job and associated payment had nothing to do with his U.S. office, which is not a conclusion that can be readily drawn about the services purchased by foreign and state government employees newly flocking to Trump International Hotel. It may suggest the permissibility of accepting profits from truly routine transactions by truly routine hotel customers, including some government diplomats—but this possibility is undercut by Alito’s reference to the extremely limited nature of the permitted relationship and transaction in question.

The Justice Department is understandably leaning hard on the idea that an emolument must be received specifically as a function of office or employment. After all, without this very specific qualification, its argument for the permissibility of accepting profits from ordinary transactions falls apart. Two OLC opinions make this clear.

A 1982 OLC opinion determined that the Foreign Emoluments Clause barred an employee of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission from working on his leave time for an American firm contracted by a Mexican government agency to review the design of a government-owned nuclear power plant. And a 1993 OLC opinion concluded that law firm partners serving as non-government advisors on the Administrative Conference of the United States could not accept partnership earnings “where some portion of that share is derived from the partnership’s representation of a foreign government” without triggering the constitutional prohibition. In the 1993 opinion, the OLC actually dismissed the argument that the conference member was not subject to the foreign government's “control” as “not decisive.” Instead, the OLC concluded that the portion of partnership profits the conference member would receive "would be a function of the amount paid to the firm by the foreign government," such that "the partnership would in effect be a conduit for that government." Acceptance of that portion of income was therefore a prohibited emolument (OLC reconsidered this opinion in 2010, but only with respect to whether the members held an “Office of . . . Trust” for purposes of the Foreign Emoluments Clause).

In these opinions, the OLC simply did not care that there was nothing out of the ordinary about the payments in these cases from a transactional or fair-market perspective. This runs contrary to the crux of the Justice Department’s argument for the innocuousness of Trump’s business-related foreign and domestic government income.

The textual kicker in all this is that even accepting the Justice Department’s insistence that “emolument” is best read to mean “profit arising from an office or employ” (Barclay’s A Complete and Universal English Dictionary on a New Plan (1774)), it doesn’t follow that all ordinary business transactions are okay: What if those transactions are, in number or value, enhanced by the prestige of the president’s office? Couldn’t the profit thereby derived then constitute “profit arising from an office or employ”? [Update, 5:17 pm: This is a line of argument that Marty Lederman compellingly and more thoroughly details here.]

It is to prevent this reading that the Justice Department argues that prohibited benefits must arise not just from the office but from the provision of services pursuant to that office. But this argument relies on a stunted conception of the power that an "Office of Profit or Trust" confers. To lift an example wholesale from Ben Wittes: If Trump owned a nondescript hotdog truck outside the White House that charged the same price for hotdogs as any other foodtruck and sold them to some incidental foreign customers, that would not be problematic under this definition of emoluments. If the truck were Trump-branded and either charged inflated prices or enjoyed inflated sales because Trump is president, and Saudi potentates lined up to put cash in his register, that would seem to constitute impermissible “profit arising from an office,” as a textual matter and in view of the historic Comptroller and OLC perspective.

At base, this is what plaintiffs are claiming—that the profits Trump is enjoying “aris[es] from” his office—so “aris[e] from” may be a definitional phrase the Justice Department is interpreting too narrowly. Trump’s status as the most powerful man in the world affects his business transactions, which are self-branded to boot. Not only is he enjoying booming business at his exclusive properties, in part thanks to foreign guests reportedly seeking to get in the president’s good graces, but he has also won Chinese trademark protection that, according to plaintiffs, he would not have received had he not become president.

Finally, on a practical note, notice the perverse upshot of the Justice Department’s fixation on employment and personal services as the place where the river divides. This assertion that payment for goods and business-related services is permissible but payment for employment and “personal services” is not means that a president can’t profit off his brain or body when it comes to cash from foreign sources or U.S. government entities, but can, without limitation, profit off the brains and bodies of those he can afford to employ in his private capacity. It’s what you might call a constitutional free pass for super-rich presidents.

The Comptroller and OLC opinions do not support such a result. They repudiate it.


Ultimately, the Justice Department’s view of emoluments marks a departure from the public Comptroller and OLC opinions in at least two critical respects. First, the new position is a clear abrogation of the practical “spirit of the Constitution” analysis on which the Comptroller and OLC have consistently relied to ensure a stringent rather than forgiving interpretation of what constitutes an impermissible benefit or undue influence (see, e.g., 1955 Comptroller Opinion, 1981 OLC Opinion, 1983 Comptroller Opinion; see also OLC 1962, noting “the sweeping nature of the constitutional prohibition”; OLC 1980, citing 1902 Attorney General Opinion stating the Foreign Emoluments Clause is “directed against every kind of influence by foreign governments upon officers of the United States” and the “prohibition should be given the broadest possible scope and application”). Second, the Justice Department’s quite specific argument that the president can profit from employing people to do business with foreign countries and government entities in the United States amounts to a strange carve-out, one that allows extremely wealthy officers with people in their employ to cash out as they wish on the advantages that the prestige of their office confers, without any consideration whatsoever of the sources of that cash. This interpretation is flatly at odds with executive branch tradition: I have yet to see a single opinion that has permitted an officer to collect profits even arguably enhanced by the power of his office, much less categorically benefit from discretionary, price-indeterminant transactions that foreign governments and U.S. government entities may enter into at will.

Note the issues I did not address here. What is not (yet) a point of debate in these particular lawsuits is whether these constitutional provisions apply to the president at all. The Domestic Emoluments Clause applies to the president by its express terms, and in its recent motion, the Justice Department doesn’t dispute CREW's claim, or the OLC’s preexisting determination, that the more obliquely phrased Foreign Emoluments Clause applies to the president as well (and notwithstanding the occasional argument to the contrary).

In addition, as the suits proceed in federal court, we can expect much of the legal discussion to focus on jurisdictional hurdles. There’s a strong argument that the courts don’t have a role to play, and that presidential corruption rising to the level of an emoluments violation is a political question whose resolution properly lies with Congress. Though the congressional suit spearheaded by Senator Richard Blumenthal and Representative John Conyers, Jr. alleges that Trump has failed to come to Congress for requisite permission in accepting foreign emoluments, Congress’s best recourse be impeachment proceedings. (Or if it so chose, Congress could avail itself of a lot of options short of impeachment, but in the words of Charles Black, Jr., circa 1974, “what an enormous if.” Recall that the House of Representatives has the power to demand Trump’s tax returns but has not exercised it.)

But as for the substantive question of whether the Comptroller and OLC of yore would have signed off on the Justice Department’s blessing of all monies flowing in by way of business transactions, the answer is “no.”

          Could we have found one of the most eco friendly restaurants in Tenerife?   
There are some many 'buzz words' associated with eco friendly dinning these days. From sustainable farming to food miles, today's dinners want to know more about where the food they are consuming has come from and how it got to their plate. Whilst this is something that is very difficult to do in Tenerife as much of the produce used by the local restaurants has to be imported to the island, clearly the fact that Tenerife is a large rock rising out of the Atlantic Ocean, it's quite safe to assume that much of the fish has been either caught or farmed locally in Tenerife.Click image for larger picture
          Re: "How Do Your Financial Priorities Stack Up With Our Pyramid?"   
When I started out, my goals were to build up my savings, start saving for retirement, and pay off my modest student loan debt. My first priority was to save and once I had savings, I started looking for better investment vehicles. Early on, I started with a workplace savings plan too. The odd thing was that I was pretty conservative in the beginning and my IRA was in FDIC Insured Certificates of Deposit until a friend went into the brokerage business. The IRA went to him but even then I bought another CD and three zero coupon treasuries paying 8% along with the first stock I ever bought, which was AST Research.

Can't say that I thought a lot about asset allocation though I always loved having money in the bank. The more, the better. It seemed that life was unpredictable and going through unexpected challenges went better if you had good cash reserves.

The way I think of the Pyramid is probably the way college students think of the 4 food groups: Pizza, Beer, Top Ramen, and Nachos. When you start out, you just sort of go with what makes sense at the time. It isn't like I had all my life goals planned out when I graduated from college. It just seemed that doors would open up at the right time.

          Comment on How I Finally Got Rid of Pantry Moths! by Sherri   
Safer Pantry Pest trap - Pheromone traps seem useful - the pests multiply on their own when they establish good food sources, and I'd try not to blame the traps for their #'s. I'm sharing a tip I read once on Amazon, another customer said to put the small pheromone tab in the center of traditional flypaper /flytape (to catch alot more and hold alot better than the included glue trap). Rescue brand fly tape looks better than the orange strips - But traps and sorting don't quite seem enough, and the DE plan sounds great. I'm wondering whether an open cup of wheat flour mixed with DE would lure them to lay eggs there? I have also read that DE around the bedposts is key for bedbug control, if you have them, or worry about getting them.

          Pops and O.P. - "You Go To My Head"   
© -Steven Cerra, copyright protected; all rights reserved.

“Louis Armstrong  was the father of “vernacular music,” which was made possible by the microphone.  Anyone with any kind of contemporary rhythmic concept —be they singer, instrumentalist, or composer-arranger— owes a debt to Armstrong.  By the way, my favorite Armstrong performance, both playing and singing, is his 1957 recording of “You Go To My Head” with Oscar Peterson. If you want to understand where Miles Davis came from, and why Armstrong is still relevant today, listen to this.  I often play it for students, and many of them find it a life-changing record.”
- Bill Kirchner, Jazz musician

Returning to the subject of favorite recordings, Louis Armstrong Meets Oscar Peterson [825 713-2] has been included in that group since Verve released it in 1957.

Louis’ meeting with Oscar Peterson's trio, is as Richard Cook and Brian Morton in The Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD, 6th Ed “perhaps a mixed success, but nevertheless an intriguing disc.”

Peterson can't altogether avoid his besetting pushiness, yet he's just as often sotto voce [a quiet or understated voice; literally “under the voice”] in accompaniment, and on the slower tunes especially - Sweet Lorraine and Lets Fall In Love and You Go To My Head.”

But the important point here is that “the chemistry works, and Louis is certainly never intimidated.”

I also agree with them when they assert: “It’s good to hear [Pops] on material more obviously 'modern' than he normally tackled and, although he sometimes gets the feel of a song wrong, he finds a surprising spin tor several of the lyrics.”

But I think, the most important point to be made in its favor is that, thanks again to the intercession of impresario Norman Granz in, that the album exists!

How many times have you heard friends’ remarks about Wish List recordings - “Gee, I wonder what it would have sounded like to have so-and-so performing with such-and-such - while knowing that the reality is that’s never going to happen because those artists are no longer with us?

I’ve often longed for a Louis Armstrong-Art Tatum recording, but that never happened, either. Thankfully, this one did, especially since Oscar Peterson gets a close to Tatum as anyone ever did.

Put another way, although a modern stylist and very much his own man, Peterson’s homage to Tatum is very much apparent in his playing and is what I think that Cook-Morton are referring to when they mention Oscar’s “besettling pushiness.” But that’s not the way I hear it. What’s on display here is a great accompanist offering his talents to a great soloist, one very much deserving of his respect.

More about the special nature of Louis Armstrong Meets Oscar Peterson [Verve 825 713-2] is revealed in Leonard Feather's liner notes from the original LP release of this material:

"When I was a kid," Louis Armstrong says, "I used to go singing around in churches or choirs or on street corners. You'd get four hustlers on a corner who could make a sharp quartet. 1 was about seven years old when I started singing. We'd pass the hat and sometimes we'd make as much as $1.50 a night. That was like $150 a night now"

This recollection places Satchmo's vocal career ahead of his horn-blowing life by several years and means that he has been singing, for pleasure and money, over half a century. Since today his popularity with the general public can be credited even more to his singing than to the trumpet that originally made him a globally known figure, and since the present album is basically a set of vocal performances, it is interesting to note that this thorny, rock-bottomed approach to the use of the human voice predated (and in a sense predicted) similar melodic and rhythmic nuances on the cornet and trumpet.

As George Avakian pointed out in The Jazz Makers (Grove Press), Louis "developed a whole school of jazz singing, based on a literal interpretation of the folk and blues singers' approach to the voice as an instrument. Louis showed that the emotional meaning of o lyric can be expressed through vocal inflections and improvisations of a purely instrumental quality just as effectively — more so, in fact — as through words. This line of development paralleled the growth of his instrumental influence. It still embraces every jazz and popular singer today"

All this can be applied at full strength to the dozen interpretations on these sides of material that generally falls in the popular song category. What Louis may lack in clear understanding of the lyrics' meaning in occasional lines is more than compensated by his overall feeling for the mood of both lyrics and melody. And there are, of course, additional virtues in the presence of his companions. The Oscar Peterson Trio Plus One (Louis Bellson again rounds out the rhythm section as he did on previous albums in which Oscar's trio played for Louis, Ella Fitzgerald and others) is perhaps the most perfectly integrated rhythmic unit of its kind in contemporary jazz.

Peterson's background is about as different from Louis' as Admiral Byrd's from Dr. Livingstone's; yet it is this very contrast, and the eclectic quality in his work, that makes him the ideal accompanist, for any singer or instrumentalist of any jazz school. What Louis learned on the streets and in the Waifs' Home in New Orleans has its best possible complement in what Oscar learned during rigorous classical studies north of the border. Neither had to bend a millimeter in musical concession to the other; the blend of spontaneous musicianship and academic knowledge was natural and immediate.

All the songs in this are from 15 to 30 years old; all have been used extensively by jazzmen, though in several instances Louis had never before recorded them. ...

You Go To My Head is, unless memory fails, Louis' first recorded performance of a number he could and should have introduced as soon as it was published, over 20 years ago. Perhaps in an effort to compensate for keeping us waiting so long, he plays an entire chorus and sings another. Not since Billie Holiday has there been a comparable sympathetic treatment….

Hearing Louis in the un-frilled, ungimmicked setting of the Oscar Peterson rhythm section will be a treat for those who have often seen him in person and wished for fewer encumbrances. Basically Louis needs nobody but Louis — he could stand all alone in the middle of the Sahara, singing selected excerpts from the Tunis telephone directory, and we suspect he could make it for a week without food and water. But if there must be someone else, let it be the man whose team made this
session such a happy occasion for all concerned. The meeting of Armstrong and Peterson marked one of the most catalytic moments since the day when Peterson met Norman Granz.”

Of You Go To My Head, Ted Gioia has written in The Jazz Standards: A Guide to the Repertoire [Oxford]

You Go to My Head
Composed by J. Fred Coots, with lyrics by Haven Gillespie

“In 1934, this same songwriting duo collaborated on "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," which endeared itself to Mom and Dad by getting countless youngsters to move from the naughty to nice cohort group. Four years later, some of those nice kids had grown up, but I'm confident few parents encouraged their headstrong teens to follow the lead of the new Gillespie-Coots hit "You Go to My Head." This song was a paean to romantic infatuation, packed with similes relating love to booze; in the course of a few bars — musical ones, that is, not those called "Dew Drop Inn" — we get references to champagne, burgundy, and a kicker of julep. Indeed, this song comes closer than any tune I know to capturing in musical form the feeling of losing control.

If the words were a bit too sophisticated for the kids, so was the music. "You Go to My Head" is an intricately constructed affair with plenty of harmonic movement. The song starts in a major key, but from the second bar onward, Mr. Coots seems intent on creating a feverish dream quality tending more to the minor mode. The release builds on the drama, and the final restatement holds some surprises as well. The piece would be noteworthy even if it lacked such an exquisite coda, but those last eight bars convey a sense of resigned closure to the song that fittingly matches the resolution of the lyrics.

Four artists had hit records with this song during the summer 051938. Larry Clinton's version was the biggest success, reaching as high as #3, but Teddy Wilson, Billie Holiday, and Glen Gray's Casa Loma Orchestra each enjoyed placement in the top 20 with their releases. The song fell out of circulation during the early 19403, but was widely covered during the second half of the decade, with artists from a range of stylistic camps — including Dizzy Gillespie, Gene Krupa, Lena Home, Coleman Hawkins, Dave Brubeck, Artie Shaw, and Lennie Tristano — bringing their individual talents to bear on it.

Vocalists tend to take this song at a "deep ballad" tempo, sometimes so extremely slow that they test the competence of the rhythm section to maintain a sense of swing while moving along at less than 40 beats per minute. Check out the recordings by Betty Carter and Shirley Horn for examples of how this can work when the instrumentalists on hand match the skill of the singer. In contrast, Bill Evans — whom one might expect to linger over the chart — delivers a simmering hard bop treatment on his 1962 Interplay album, helped along by Jim Hall and Freddie Hubbard.

Dave Brubeck and Paul Desmond take a different approach in their 1952 duet performance from Storyville, mixing romanticism and cerebral deconstruction in equal doses. Desmond had such fondness for this recording that when he and Brubeck reunited for a duet project in 1975, he wanted to showcase "You Go to My Head" again, and the song served as the emotional centerpiece of the resulting album. Both versions are worth hearing, but the earlier track is especially revealing of the simpatico relationship between these two artists, and is my favorite performance from their work for the Fantasy label.”

Here’s a video of Pops and OP performing You Go to My Head.

          An Alaskan Speaks about Bear Spray   
Bear spray canisters and holsters
(Udap brand).
A spate of incidents in Alaska (and the Northern Rockies) have some people asking, "Does bear spray work?"

Alaska news-blogger Craig Medred has posted on this repeatedly. The main issue seems to be that minority of black bears (not griz) who turn predator, but grizzlies are always of concern as well.
Twenty-seven-year-old Erin Johnson from Anchorage died June 19 after she and a coworker were attacked by a predatory black bear while doing environmental studies in brushy forest about five miles from the state’s largest underground gold mine. . .
Sean Farley, a bear researcher and wildlife physiologist with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, emphasized that bear spray has proven hugely effective on charging bears, especially charging grizzlies.

But he noted the physical state of those bears. They charge with eyes wide open, nostrils flaring and often huffing air into their lungs. They are fully exposed to the active ingredient in the spray – oleoresin capsicum, an oily extract from the pepper plant.
Unlike tear gas, which appears to work poorly on bears, capsicum causes more than just irritation to the eyes. Inhaled, it inflames airways making it temporarily harder to breathe and from what is known about research on humans, it might do even more than that.

A charging grizzly is likely to get a big dose of capsicum. That is not necessarily the case for a predatory bear. . . . Farley describes predatory bears as approaching with eyes squinting, mouths shut and  nostrils narrowed. They come in like bears approaching beehives ready to suffer a bit to get the food they want. Their physical preparations would serve to minimize the dose of spray hitting the bear.
The post goes on to talk about risk-assessment: "Statistically, you are orders of magnitude more likely to die in a motor vehicle or boating accident in Alaska than to be attacked by a bear, let alone killed by one." But fear of bears is more primal than fear of motorboats.

And there is speculation on the changing nature of predators world-wide. Read it all.

The big about bears approaching beehives reminded me of when my late brother-in-law was raising hogs on his farm in southeastern Missouri. His was a small operation, maybe a dozen or so at a time, partly for the family and partly for sale.

He told me about one particular hog that would bust through an electric fence. The pig knew that it would get shocked, so it started squealing before it hit the fence, but it still wanted to break through more than it did not want to be shocked. There is no reason why some bear might not take the same attitude toward bear spray.

I still carry it at appropriate times, however. It also works well on overly aggressive dogs. And I see that Medred still carries it too.

Hey there! Just came across this recipe and it looks like it calls for 4 teaspoons of nutmeg. I'm getting question marks in weird places in the text, so maybe I'm not seeing it right. But I remembered something I heard on Food Network years ago, too much nutmeg is toxic. Apparently they have researchers who check the safety of recipes before airing; they gave the example of how one with too much nutmeg got cut. Just wanted to throw that info out there. I looked it up before writing this and saw 2-3 teaspoons can be toxic. Still saving the recipe, but will switch most of the nutmeg with cinnamon and cloves. :)

 - My sarcastic, slanted, sophomoric, and skewed view on the world of reality television   
Re: paying vs going dutch I agree with Reality Steve on this one. About 5 years ago, I accepted a date with a guy that I was on the fence about (he seemed like a really nice guy, but I was only mildly attracted to him. Knowing that personality can make a real difference in a person's attractiveness, I gave him a chance and agreed to dinner). He picked the restaurant (a new hot spot where we live in L.A, and very expensive). The food wasn't great, and when the bill arrived, he said "we can split it". My part came to $80. I paid my share and didn't go out with him again (though he asked repeatedly and was genuinely confused when I turned him down). My feeling is - if you expect me to pay half, then at least let me, the woman, pick the restaurant! I'd rather pay $80 at a nice steakhouse and enjoy a good meal than pay for a meal that I don't enjoy. Years later, I ran into him and he told me that I was "the one that got away". All I could think was "of course you're still single, dude. Women aren't exactly swooning over guys that are just "ok looking" and ask you to split the bill". Since then, no one has ever asked me to go dutch. I guess he was just an outlier.

          Misleading Theories Lead People Astray - Gardening and Theology   
 Pirate Bugs are tiny enemies of aphids.

Dr. Lito Cruz blogged about scientists and their theories. That reminded me about the agricultural experts discovering aspects of Creation that eluded them for the last century.

Synthetic fertilizer will make plants grow better, especially when the correct NPK ratio is observed for the crops, which vary in their needs.Nitrogen can make a plant grow without producing fruit. Most of us have put lawn fertilizer on grass and noticed how it became greener and denser. Conclusion - man-made fertilizer is good, even though the pioneering scientist - Liebig - saw that the original outcomes were misleading and the theory wrong. Never-mind, he launched an international industry.

Justus Liebig is Mr. N-P-K.

Only recently, soil scientists have taken note of the essential work of soil fungus, whose strands are thinner than a human hair and invisible to the naked eye. Moreover, fungal contributions cannot be easily observed in a lab.

Likewise, organic growers re-discovered the value of manure, mulch, and compost. They had good results, but gave more credit to the larger creatures of the soil -  like earthworms - than to the fungus they could not see. One earthworm per shovel of soil was considered a key  measure of fertility.

Now the scientists realize soil fungus has many powerful effects:
Breaking down the most complex plant compounds, like wood and bark;
Distributing useful chemicals and water to plants;
Fighting plant disease.

The log rotting on top of the soil is feeding many plants, attracting soil creatures, perhaps sheltering a toad, and providing bugs for bird food.

Others have argued that cover crops are essential for renewing the soil, because 75% of the organic matter in soil comes from roots.

Since these results can be measured scientifically, it is easy to compare the Liebig theory with Creation. Whether one starts from

  1. The complex relationship of fungus and soil microbes, or
  2. Replacing toxins with beneficial insects, or 
  3. The regeneration of soil through cover crops, or 
  4. Abandoning the plow - 

Creation explains why those new approaches work so well, whether among Christian believers or not, for the sun shines equally on the just and the unjust.

Dr. Cruz' article reminds me of a professor who knocked us off our assumptions that something was true because everyone said it was. He would offer something from Judaism and then point out the exceptions. He let us plant our flags on everyone's established truth, then blew up the assumption. His final observation was: "Every Harvard graduate gives the same test - short answer, matching, and an essay question." And I thought, "That's my Old Testament professor from Augustana."

 Where do we find cell groups
instead of the Means of Grace? - Pietism.
Where do we find Justification by Faith
instead of UOJ? - Pietism

In Theology
What intrigued me about the WELS clergy in Columbus, Ohio was their smug ignorance and their utter hatred for Lutheran doctrine. Something had to explain how the entire cluster of congregations was running on hypocrisy, so utterly superior to everyone but doing exactly what ELCA, the LCMS, and the Pente-Babtists were doing. Albeit a day late and a dollar short.

The answer was - their complete disregard and contempt for the efficacy of the Word in the Means of Grace. At this point they have already caught up with the early ELCA's commitment to all things radical. The LCMS and WELS are tearing apart their own sects while celebrating the Reformation's 500th by saying, "Here We Stand in our CPH Stockings - Sign Up for a Charitable Annuity Trust from Thrivent."

The Kwama are not a new species to Elder Scrolls. They were prominent in The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind. They are natives of Morrowind, and they must be weary of Dark Elves, who harvest their eggs for food.

These bacteria are supposed to be there, because they assist humans in digestion by breaking down proteins found in specific foods, mucous or phlegm, blood, and in diseased or "broken-down" oral tissue. Under certain conditions, these bacteria start to break down proteins at a very high rate. Proteins are made up of Amino Acids. Two of the Amino Acids (Cysteine and Methionine) are dense with sulfur.<br /><br /><br /><a href="" rel="nofollow">Bad Breath Cure, Bad Breath Treatment, How To Cure Bad Breath, Bad Breath Remedies, How To Cure Bad Breath, Halitosis Cure</a>

          Scalloped Tote   
I have had this tote for about six weeks, but haven't blogged about it because I feel lukewarm about it. It's a fine tote for the price (retail price is $49), but it's not really a piece that I am eager to wear. It is very room though, which I've at times found useful (it's the rare bag that will fit a beach towel, some snacks--including a party-sized bag of Ruffles, an oversized photobook, a box of tissues, and some drinks: pretty much everything I might need to while away an afternoon by a lake).

But it's now 50% off online (but comes in and out of stock), and finally at a price point where it might be considered a good deal. If you are looking for a cute (scallops!) picnic or beach bag, this is a pretty good option. 

(Related: ASOS also sells a scallop tote that is very reasonably-priced.)
American Eagle Faded Denim Jacket (size XXS; current season here) || J. Crew Shift Dress in Morning Floral (size 000 with straps shortened) || BP. Scalloped Faux Leather Tote in Ivory || STEVEN by Steve Madden Viienna Sandals in Tan Nubuck (size 7; also sold here, here, and here)
And for anyone who is still shopping for practical heeled-strappy sandals (which might be an oxymoron), I highly recommend the STEVEN by Steve Madden Viienna Sandals (also sold here, here, and here). The heels are ~3" tall, but it is a shoe you can wander aimlessly in, unlike the Steve Madden Stecy Sandals (seen here), which make legs look a mile long, but always destroy my feet after a few hours. The Viienna probably won't work for those with wide feet, but should be fine for those with medium-to-slightly-wide width feet. They fit true-to-size for Steve Madden, or about a half size small compared to other mass retailers. If you are between sizes, definitely size up (unless you have narrow feet).

          “Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend Our Lord very much.” - Our Lady of Fatima, 1917   
“Certain fashions will be introduced   that will offend Our Lord very much.”   - Our Lady of Fatima, 1917
Free EBOOK.  Recall Our Lady warned the world in 1917!  How much worse is the scandal these days with immodest dress especially in Summer

Summer unfortunately brings with it the height of immodesty, in both men and women.  This is a good time, then, to remember that words of Our Lady of Fatima who warned us that "more souls go to hell for sins of the flesh (i.e. sins against the 6thand 9th Commandments) than for any other reason." Our Lady of Fatima told Jacinta, "Certain fashions will be introduced that will gravely offend My Son." Jacinta also said, “People who serve God should not follow fashions. The Church has no fashions; Our Lord is always the same.”
Shorts, sleeveless tops, slacks on women, mini-skirts, swimwear, bare midriffs, tight and sheer clothing would all fit into this category of immodest fashions. Sadly, few priests warn their flock of the great danger associated with immodesty of dress, that of losing one’s soul for all eternity.  So many girls and young women are growing up today without direction and, like so many misled sheep, are following immoral fashions to the destruction of souls.

The Bible tells us, "In like manner I wish women to be decently dressed, adorning themselves with modesty and dignity, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, but with good works, such as become women professing godliness." (1 Tim. 2:9-10)  
The following are various warnings the Catholic Church has given to the faithful, for the protection of their immortal souls.

Pope Benedict XV wrote in his encyclical Sacra Propediem on January 6, 1921:
“One cannot sufficiently deplore the blindness of so many women of every age and station. Made foolish by a desire to please, they do not see to what degree the indecency of their clothing shocks every honest man and offends God. Most of them would formerly have blushed for such apparel as for a grave fault against Christian modesty. Now it does not suffice to exhibit themselves on public thoroughfares; they do not fear to cross the threshold of churches, to assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and even to bear the seducing food of shameful passion to the Holy Altar, where one receives the Author of Purity.”

On January 12, 1930, the Sacred Congregation of the Council, by mandate of Pope Pius XI, issued emphatic instructions on modesty of dress to all bishops:
“We recall that a dress cannot be called decent which is cut deeper than two fingers breadth under the pit of the throat, which does not cover the arms at least to the elbows, and scarcely reaches a bit beyond the knee. Furthermore, dresses of transparent material are improper. Let parents keep their daughters away from public gymnastic games and contests; but, if their daughters are compelled to attend such exhibitions, let them see to it that they are fully and modestly dressed. Let them never permit their daughters to don immodest garb.” 

Pope Pius XII said in 1954:
“Now many girls do not see anything wrong with following certain shameless styles (fashions) like so many sheep. They would surely blush if they could only guess the impressions they make and the feelings they evoke (arouse) in those who see them.” (July 17, 1954

Pope Pius XII seriously admonished Christian mothers: 
“The good of our soul is more important than that of our body; and we have to prefer the spiritual welfare of our neighbor to our bodily comforts… If a certain kind of dress constitutes a grave and proximate occasion of sin, and endangers the salvation of your soul and others, it is your duty to give it up…  O Christian mothers, if you knew what a future of anxieties and perils, of ill-guarded shame you prepare for your sons and daughters, imprudently getting them accustomed to live scantily dressed and making them lose the sense of modesty, you would be ashamed of yourselves and you would dread the harm you are making of yourselves, the harm which you are causing these children, whom Heaven has entrusted to you to be brought up as Christians.” (Pius XII to Catholic Young Women’s Groups of Italy)

The Canadian bishops in May of 1946 wrote:
“Man himself does not escape from the inclination of exhibiting his flesh: some go in public, stripped to the waist, or in very tight pants or in very scanty bathing suits. They thus commit offenses against the virtue of modesty. They may also be an occasion of sin (in thought or desire) for our neighbor.” 

Cardinal Pla y Daniel, Archbishop of Toledo, Spain, stated in 1959:
“A special danger to morals is represented by public bathing at beaches ... Mixed bathing between men and women, which is nearly always a proximate occasion of sin and a scandal, must be avoided.”

From a 1930 Letter of the Congregation of the Council:
“By virtue of the supreme apostolate which he wields over the Universal Church by Divine Will, our Most Holy Father Pope Pius XI has never ceased to inculcate, both verbally and by his writings, the words of St. Paul (1 Tim. 2:9-10), namely, ‘Women ... adorning themselves with modesty and sobriety ... and professing godliness with good works.’  Very often, when occasion arose, the same Supreme Pontiff condemned emphatically the immodest fashion of dress adopted by Catholic women and girls--which fashion not only offends the dignity of women and against her adornment, but conduces to the temporal ruin of the women and girls, and, what is still worse, to their eternal ruin, miserably dragging down others in their fall. It is not surprising, therefore, that all Bishops and other ordinaries, as is the duty of ministers of Christ, should in their own dioceses have unanimously opposed their depraved licentiousness and promiscuity of manners, often bearing with fortitude the derision and mockery leveled against them for this cause.”


From the Plenary Assembly of the Bishops of Brazil:

“Let the priests forcefully insist that women wear clothing which expresses modesty ...
     “Let women, at all times, but especially, as the Apostle Saint Paul teaches, when they are in church, dress with modesty. If they should dare to enter the church immodestly dressed, let them, as Canon Law commands (Canon 1262, par. 2), be judiciously put out and prevented from assisting at any function whatsoever.
     “Let those who are going to receive Holy Communion be decently dressed. Women whose heads are not covered and who are improperly dressed are to be excluded from the Sacrament, as Canon Law directs (Canons 855 & 1262, par. 2).”
St. Padre Pio, the stigmatist priest, who bore the bleeding wounds of Christ on his own body from 1918 until his death in 1968, refused to grant absolution to any woman who did not wear her skirt well below the knee.  He also insisted that women do not wear slacks. (Verified by mail at Padre Pio’s monastery.  Address: Rev. J. P. Martin, San Giovanni Rotondo 71013 FG Italy)

A General Pastoral Directive from 1915 reads: “Women must be decently dressed, especially when they go to church. The parish priest may, with due prudence, refuse them entrance to the church and access to the reception of the Sacraments, any and every time that they come to church immodestly dressed.”

St. John Chrysostom, Bishop of Constantinople and one of the 32 doctors of the Church, said the following regarding women who dress immodestly:   
"You carry your snare everywhere and spread your net in all places.  You allege that you never invited others to sin.  You did not indeed by your words, but you have done so by your dress and your deportment.  And much more effectively than you could by your voice.  When you have made another sin in his heart, how can you be innocent?  Tell me whom does this world condemn?  Whom do the judges in court punish?  Those who drink poison or those who prepare it and administer the fatal potion?  You are more criminal than those who poison the body.  You have given the death-dealing drink.  You murder not the body but the soul, and it is not to enemies do you do this nor are you urged on by any imaginary necessity nor provoked by injury.  But you do it out of foolish vanity and pride."  
Unfortunately, today's attire seems to have almost no boundaries. It is a disgrace for Christian women to expose their bodies, which are the temples of the Holy Ghost after baptism. A women who dresses immodestly commits a double sin:  
“You women who profane your bodies have been led by satan to soul destruction.  You expose your bodies not knowing the evil that comes into the minds of the beholder.  Therefore, your sin is twofold for you have led another to fall into sin!”

The Bible tells us: “Know you not that your members are the temple of the Holy Ghost, who is in you, whom you have from God: and you are not your own? For you are bought with a great price. Glorify and bear God in your body.” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)  Immodest dress is an offense to God and does not glorify God, but rather reduces the Christian woman to an object of lust and mocks the laws of God. Modesty in dress, on the other hand, helps safeguard the virtue of purity and is demanded by the moral law of God.  St. Cyprian writes: 
"Nothing so delights the faithful soul as the healthy consciousness of an unstained modesty. To have vanquished pleasure is the greatest pleasure; nor is there any greater victory than that which is gained over one's desires."

          By 2100, Refugees Would Be the Most Populous Country on Earth   
Poverty and deadly wars are the major drivers of displacement.

The UN Refugee Agency has announced the new figures for the world’s displaced: 65.9 million. That means that 65.9 million human beings live as refugees, asylum seekers or as internally displaced people. If the refugees formed a country, it would be the 21st largest state in the world, just after Thailand (68.2 million) and just ahead of the United Kingdom (65.5 million). But unlike these other states, refugees have few political rights and no real representation in the institutions of the world.

The head of the UN Refugee Agency, Filippo Grandi, recently said that most of the displacement comes as a result of war. "The world seems to have become unable to make peace," Grandi said. "So you see old conflicts that continue to linger, and new conflicts erupting, and both produce displacement. Forced displacement is a symbol of wars that never end."

Few continents are immune from the harsh reality of war. But the epicenter of war and displacement is along the axis of the Western-driven global war on terror and resource wars. The line of displacement runs from Afghanistan to South Sudan with Syria in between. Eyes are on Syria, where the war remains hot and the tensions over escalation intensify daily. But there is as deadly a civil war in South Sudan, driven in large part by a ferocious desire to control the country’s oil. Last year, 340,000 people fled South Sudan for refugee camps in neighboring Uganda. This is a larger displacement than from Syria.

Poverty is a major driver of displacement. It is what moves hundreds of thousands of people to try and cross the Sahara Desert and then the Mediterranean Sea for European pastures. But most who try this journey meet a deadly fate. Both the Sahara and the Mediterranean are dangerous. This week, the UN’s International Organisation for Migration (IOM) in Niger rescued 600 migrants from the Sahara, although 52 did not survive.

A 22-year-old woman from Nigeria was among those rescued. She was on a pick-up truck with 50 people. They left Agadez for Libya. ‘We were in the desert for ten days,’ she says. "After five days, the driver abandoned us. He left us with all of our belongings, saying he was going to pick us up in a couple of hours. But he never did." Forty-four of the migrants died. The six who remained struggled to safety. ‘We had to drink our own pee to survive,’ she said.

Getting to Libya is hard enough. But being in Libya is perilous. Violence against vulnerable migrants inside Libya continues to occur. The IOM reports the presence in Libya of ‘slave markets.’ Migrants who make it across the Sahara into Libya have told investigators that they find themselves in these slave markets where they are bought to be taken to private prisons and put to work or else sold back to their families if they can raise the high ransom payments. UNICEF reports incidents of rape and violence against women and children in these private prisons. One 15-year-old boy said of his time in a private prison, "Here they treat us like chickens. They beat us, they do not give us good water and good food. They harass us. So many people are dying here, dying from disease, freezing to death."

Danger lurks on the sea as well. This year already IOM reports least 2,108 deaths in the sea between Libya and Italy. This is the fourth year in a row that IOM has counted over 2,000 deaths by mid-year. Over the past five years, this averages out to about 10 deaths a day. Libya, broken by NATO’s war in 2011, remains a gateway for the vulnerable from various parts of Africa, countries damaged by IMF policies and by warfare. There is no expectation that the numbers of those on the march will decrease.

In a recent paper in The Lancet (June 2017), Paul Spiegel, formerly of the UN Refugee Agency suggests that the "humanitarian system was not designed to address the types of conflicts that are happening at present." With over 65 million people displaced, the various institutions of the UN and of the NGO world are simply not capable of managing the crisis.

"It is not simply overstretched," Spiegel wrote of the humanitarian system, "it is no longer fit for purpose."

These are shattering words. One problem Spiegel identifies is the assumption that refugee flows are temporary, since wars will end at some point. What happens when wars and occupations are permanent? People either have to live for generations in refugee camps or they will seek, through dangerous passages, flight to the West. He gives the example of Iran, which absorbed over a million Afghan refugees without using the camp strategy. They simply allowed the Afghans into Iranian society and absorbed them by putting money into their various social schemes (such as education and health). Spiegel also points out that refugees must be part of the designing the process for humanitarian aid. These are good suggestions, but they are not going to be possible with the limited funds available for refugees and with the crisis level of activity that detains the humanitarian agencies.

Spiegel does not deal with one of the great problems for humanitarianism: the persistence of war and the theory that more war—or the current euphemism, security—is the answer to humanitarian crises. This January, over 1,000 people tried to scale the large barrier that divides Morocco from the Spanish enclave of Ceuta. Looking at that barrier, one is reminded of the idea that walls will somehow prevent migration, a view driven by President Donald Trump. Violence met the migrants, a mirror of the violence that was visited among migrants along the spinal cord of Eastern Europe last year. Walls, police forces and military interventions are all seductive to an imagination that forgets why people migrate and that they are human beings on the run with few other options. There is a view that security barriers and security forces will raise the price of migrant and deter future migrants. This is a silly illusion. Migration is dangerous already. That has not stopped anyone. More humane thinking is necessary.

It is important therefore that the UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed told a meeting on the Sahel on June 28 that the world leaders need to "avoid a disproportionate emphasis on security" when dealing with the multiple crises in the Sahara region and north of it. "No purely military solution" can work against transnational organized crime, violent extremism and terrorism, nor against poverty and hopelessness. Underlying causes are not being addressed, and indeed the surface reactions—to bomb more—only create more problems, not less.

In the July issue of Land Use Policy, professors Charles Geisler and Ben Currens estimate that by 2100 there will be 2 billion refugees as a result of climate change. These numbers are staggering. They are an inevitable future. By then, refugees will be the largest country on earth—nomads, seeking shelter from destruction of climate and capitalism, from rising seas and wars of greed.

          Comment on 7 Things Everyone Should Know About Low-Carb Diets by TeeDee   
I came to this site after visiting the Intensive Dietary Management site looking for answers as to why I've been waking up at 2:30-3:00am most mornings since adopting a WOE that is VLCHF and doing IF (23:1; 7xper week) to lose weight and avoid T2D. I felt that these 2 sites would give me some understanding as to what may be going on with my 'sudden' and long lasting lack of sleep. I wouldn't mind so much if I felt rested and rejuvenated after 4-4.5 hrs of sleep, but I don't. I need 6.5-7hrs most nights to feel well. I found a comment that gave me some good food for thought regarding sleep, but felt compelled to read through the other comments, as well. I'm so glad I did. I was hell bent on spending the rest of my life striving to eat as low carb as possible. In fact, some commenters on other sites almost had me convinced to try Zero Carb. I still feel that VLC and Zero Carb have their place for many and see no reason why they are not sound plans for different reasons; but in light of my sleep deprivation of late, I will be adding a modest amount of complex carbs in the form of some extra veg to my diet to see if that will work to increase the duration of sleep. But before leaving Chris's site, I wanted to thank certain commenters for opening my eyes to other possibilities in the area of carb consumption. My goal is to be as healthy and disease free as possible while maintaining a healthy weight. This is the same goal as it is for the majority of people who visit these sites. As most know, however, the opinions, blended with 'facts' and wonderful anecdotal evidence, are legion. It is mind boggling how diverse the experiences and beliefs are of those who refuse to simply toe the line and eat the SAD diet (as many special interests would have us do). I can't start reciting the names of those whose comments struck me as incredibly intelligent, balanced and reasonable, because I would surely leave someone out and that would be worse than not thanking each person individually. I think you know who you are and I just want to thank you for your thoughtful and reasoned responses. This site and any books on the subject could just as easily be yours and they have meant as much to me as the great resources that we've all been lucky enough to read. I'm very tired and hope I didn't ramble too long or sound too disoriented, but I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to give of your vast knowledge and insights.
          Comment on 7 Things Everyone Should Know About Low-Carb Diets by TeeDee   
Hi Michelle; be careful that you don't get tempted to go full-on high carb veg in order to correct the lack of sleepiness. Many can add 1 tsp of raw honey or some extra veg a few times a week to correct this situation. I've seen some recommendations that have people eating far more high carb veg than they want, just to get the extra sleep. Sweet potatoes, for example have been touted as 'super foods' but they only differ from white potatoes in their vitamin A amounts. We need to proceed with caution to avoid 'carb creep' which has led to weight gain in so many. Do your own experiments--best wishes.

The principle is pretty much the same with food stamps, so just because there are more whites than blacks in America doesn't necessarily mean there are "Way More" whites on food stamps ! Let me break it down for you BUB , let's just say there are 1 million blacks in America & 10 million whites, 800,000 thousand blacks are siphoning off the system while 1 million whites are doing the same! So even tho there are 200,000 more whites on assistance than blacks there are an exponential number of whites putting back into the system, GET IT! The majority of your people are "USERS". Martin Luther king unconsciously made a very revealing statement when he said : "Ther Negrero MUST ATTAIN HUMAN DIGNITY". This statement is tantamount to saying the cow must attain bovine dignity.

          Lunch And Other Distractions: On Susan Bright’s Pictorial History Of Food Photography, by Geoff Nicholson, Los Angeles Review of Books   

Luddite or not, Parr, in his own work and via the three volumes of The Photobook: A History (edited with Gerry Badger), has helped create quite a few changes in the photography world. I’m not sure that anyone (other than perhaps Nobuyoshi Araki) has ever photographed food quite so relentlessly and with such attention as Parr. There are also a lot of Parr imitators out there, who mimic the form without understanding the content. He’s on Instagram these days too.

I mention all this because Parr’s influence looms large over Susan Bright’s Feast for the Eyes. For one thing, his work appears in the section labeled “1990s,” although of the eight Parr pictures included only one actually comes from that decade. Here you’ll find his deadpan images of British food: beans on toast, pink cakes in the shape of pigs, half a grapefruit in a bowl on a placemat that depicts John Constable’s The Hay Wain.

Whoops Charbonneau/REX/Shutterstock Gal Gadot may have smashed it as Wonder Woman recently but her kickass feminist role sadly only highlighted Hollywood’s gender pay gap again as the 32-year-old actress was paid a significantly lower salary for a superhero film, compared to her male counterparts. And apparently we’ve also been saying her surname wrong this entire time. Great. So while we were all obsessing over Gal Gadot’s beauty rules to live by, we weren’t even pronouncing ‘Gadot’ correctly. The world has been pronouncing the actress’ name like ‘Gal Gah-doh’ but the Israeli actress recently cleared up the confusion on Jimmy Kimmel’s show by saying that it’s actually ‘Gal Gad-dot.’ Yes, like ‘dot’ so you’re meant to really pronounce the last ‘t’. This comes shortly after we finally realised the correct way to pronounce ASOS, too. (Please don’t get us started on how we’ve been saying these 23 food names wrong, either, or how to actually say ‘hygge‘.) And, if your minds weren’t boggled enough, did you know that JK Rowling is actually pronounced JK Rolling? Or that Amanda Seyfried is actually Amanda Sigh-fred? And that Charlize Theron is pronounced Charlize Ther-in? No, us either. Well, there’s our lesson for the weekend. The post You’ve been saying […]

          MD Bill To Help People With Food Allergies    
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - County governments may soon have authority to make restaurants accommodate customers with food allergies. A new bill would let counties require each restaurant to have a staff member trained on food allergens, ready to advise customers. The bill would also require restaurants statewide to encourage customers to notify servers about their food allergies. The Senate passed the measure 33-14 Monday evening. A similar bill is pending in a House committee. Restaurants could post an advisory on the menu, asking customers with allergies to notify their servers. Or the server could ask before taking customers' orders. The Senate version, introduced by Sen. Jamie Raskin of Montgomery County, would not apply to service stations or vendors at carnivals and fairs.

          Comment on So You Want a Cultural Revolution? by Siarlys Jenkins   
<i>i remember a Trotskyite from a rival organization telling me that the “Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution” was neither great nor cultural.</i> It wasn't proletarian either... coming from a confirmed socialist who was never Maoist or Trotskyite, and has concluded the Leninist organization is a failure on its own terms, never mind what the right wing says about it. <i>Think of the possibilities: Ivy League presidents working on pig farms, coal miners as CNN anchors and New York Times editors. Nothing else would so fully fulfill their anti-elitist fantasies, although they don’t seem to resent the financial elites the same way.</i> I'd go for college presidents working on pig farms, but I want to to see Wall Street executives working in the coal mines. More realistically, I want to see all able bodied unemployed people enrolled in union apprenticeship programs building high speed rail lines across the U.S., while unemployed social workers are hired to lay track. <i>But in that horde I saw the terrifying power of the left wing “progressive” mob, its utter self righteousness, it surety that it was just one inch away from utopia, and was ready to get there by hell or high water. No doubt, they’d have been thrilled to have ousted the new, duly elected president that very moment by force of will. I do not trust these people with power.</i> What you saw was not "power" but delusional self-congratulation. This pampered mob wouldn't know what to do with power if they had it, which they don't. It would fall from their grasp as readily as it fell from the grasp of Alexander Kerensky and Bela Kun. When a party actually takes power, it becomes their job to make sure all the wheels of production are turning so everyone gets their paychecks on time, food is available in all the grocery stores, etc.

Brian Bonds loves the internet! He loves all the "apps", and uses them frequently: if he's not ordering food through an app, he's bidding on an auction; and if he's not bidding on an auction, he's trying to rent a room in his house...and if he's not doing that, he's searching for a well-endowed black man to open up his pink, tight man pussy. Today he's juggling so much he forgets the handsome black man at the door is a hook up...and NOT the man looking to rent a room! And look at the expression on Brian's face when he sees his new friend is a "True 10"! Uncut, too!! Brian drops to his knees and opens wide, thirsty for black dick. He peels the foreskin back to lick the delicious head before jumping on for what might be the ride of his life! By the end, Brian's literally had the jizz fucked out of him by massive BBC.

    2. In case you forgot to soak the chole overnight, soak them in hot water for 2 hrs covered.
    3. Instead of tea bags you can use 1 tsp tea leaves tied in cheesecloth.

          Blueberry Crumpet   

Fusion cuisine is one that combines elements of different culinary traditions. Cuisines of this type are not categorized according to any one particular cuisine style and have played a part in a number of innovations. Fusion food is a general term for the combination of various forms of cookery and comes in several forms. So here is the recipe:


  • Blueberries 3 tablespoons
  • Blueberry jam ½ cup
  • Refined flour (maida) 1½ cups
  • Milk ½ cup
  • Salt pinches
  • Baking soda pinches
  • Castor sugar (caster sugar) 7 teaspoons + ¼ cup
  • Yeast dried 15 grams
  • Lemon 1
  • Butter for greasing


  1. Bring milk to a boil and switch off heat. Add ¼ cup water and set aside.
  2. Combine refined flour, salt, baking soda and 6 teaspoons castor sugar in a bowl.
  3. Take yeast in another bowl. Add little milk-water mixture and 1 teaspoon castor sugar, mix well and set aside till the yeast activates.
  4. Make a well in the flour mixture, add the activated yeast mixture and half the milk-water mixture and whisk well. Add remaining milk-water mixture and whisk well into a thick smooth batter. Cover and set aside in a warm place for 1 hour to ferment.
  5. To make blueberry jam mix, heat ¼ cup castor sugar in a non-stick pan and let it caramelize. Add dried blueberries, mix and add some water. Mix and switch off heat. Add blueberry jam, mix well and put it back on heat.
  6. Grate lemon into it to get the zest and mix well. Add juice of ½ lemon, mix well and switch off heat. Set aside.
  7. Stir the batter.
  8. Heat a non-stick tawa. Grease a medium size ring mould with butter and place it on the tawa. Pour ladleful of batter in it, reduce heat and let the underside of the crumpet turn golden. Remove the ring, flip and cook till the other side also turns golden.
  9. Serve hot with blueberry jam mix.

          10 ways you're wasting money at the supermarket   

grocery shopping

The INSIDER Summary:

  • You may not realize it, but there's a strategy to grocery shopping that will save you lots of cash.
  • Shopping on Wednesday nights is best.
  • Never shop hungry. In fact, chewing on mint gum is a good idea while shopping.

If you're anything like the average American, your grocery shopping strategy probably consists of opening the fridge, noticing it's empty, and then stocking up with whatever you need, even if none of the items on your list are on sale. As you probably guessed, this shopping method will not be kind to your bank account.

While you may have heard of extreme couponing, there are less exhausting ways to save money at the supermarket.  

Here are the mistakes you're making when you shop for groceries, and how to fix them:

Coming in without a list

Meal prep is key here. If you plan your meals for the week ahead of time, you'll walk in with a plan and be less likely to stray from your list by compulsively grabbing pricey snacks or random ingredients that will sit in the back of your pantry unused. 

Going to the store hungry

This is probably a no-brainer, but always eat a meal before going to the supermarket. Nothing good comes out of a shopping trip when you're starving. Another tip from Lifehacker suggests chewing mint gum while you shop so you're less likely to fall victim to the store's scent marketing tactics (yes, that actually exists).

Being too lazy to use coupons


We're not suggesting you make coupon-clipping a competitive sport like those extreme couponers, but there are several insider tips you can learn from them. The Krazy Coupon lady advises buying your groceries at multiple stores to find the best discount, and to remember that certain chains take competitor coupons. She also suggests downloading money-saving apps like Ibotta and Checkout51. 

Shopping on the weekend or in the morning

Believe it or not, there are better days and times to shop. Most people do their grocery shopping on a weekend so they can prep ahead of time, but mid-week is when products with short shelf lives like meat and dairy go on sale. Plus, there are more discounts as the day wears on and stores need to get rid of perishables. Your best bet is to shop on a Wednesday night, says Lifehacker. 

Ignoring sale cycles

Sales at supermarkets aren't random; they run in 12-week cycles. Stop being shocked at the price of meat when you walk in the door by learning the ebb and flow of sale cycles. You can see an example of a month-to-month sale calendar from Krazy Coupon Lady here. Another tip is always buy produce that's in season: it's cheaper and usually fresher. 

Not buying in bulk

There's a reason why Costco is so popular. Buying in bulk is (generally) cheaper. The best items to buy in bulk are non-perishables like paper goods (toilet paper, napkins, paper plates, etc.), and cases of water, according to Spoon University. 

Buying everything in bulk


Just because you can buy almost anything in bulk, doesn't mean you should. After all, you'll probably waste a lot of food and your house will start to look like an episode of "Hoarders." If you always check unit prices, you'll find that certain foods like cereal or frozen foods are cheaper in smaller rather than larger quantities, Quick and Dirty Tips advises.

Buying all brand names

Certain products can't be replaced by the generic store brand like Oreos, Coca-Cola and name brand ice cream. But who cares if you're buying Kleenex or "Generic Tissue?" Household cleaning products are perfectly fine to buy off-brand as well. 

Not knowing how much your food should be worth off-hand

Quick! What's a fair price for a gallon of milk in your neck of the woods? If you don't know off the top of your head, you may be paying more than you should. Lifehacker suggests keeping a price book so you don't fall for fake sales where overpriced products are going for what looks like a great deal, when they're actually discounted to a normal price. 

Looking at shelves that are eye-level or above

Here's a little-known tip: cheaper items are usually stocked on the bottom shelves, whereas your expensive items will be stocked at eye-level. Why? Unless you're in the know, the average consumer will unknowingly spend more just by shopping by line-of-sight.

 We have 3 pear trees planted 2010 as 3 yr old trees. This year all three have black spots and lesions concentrated along the central rib of the leaves. Virtually all the leaves are affected. The worst affected tree also has black areas on the new growth shoots, which look like they are all dying. There are small cracked and peeling areas on the bark of all the trees, nothing oozing from them. We have searched the RHS book on Pests and Diseases but are at a loss to identify.

          Motherhood lessons: Year 2   
1. A supportive husband makes all the difference between a caring, nurturing mother and a crazy one. Seriously. Many have been the days when I am feeling overwhelmed and frustrated, and in sweeps the hubby and makes everything better. Sometimes he works quietly in the background, doing the dishes when I've fallen asleep without meaning to (again!). Other times he's vocal, full of helpful advice and loving words. But most of all, he makes everything better just by being there.

2. Night-wakings. It gets tiresome, sure, but remember when you would give anything for a little one to hold and to love? Well, you have her now - so cherish every part of it.

3. The Poop Superpower. All kids have it. You know, the ability to poop at will, only to be utilised when Mum sits down for a meal or when you are all ready to finally leave the house for that important errand that had to be done last week.
There have been days when there hasn't been a single poop the whole day, and no sooner have I sat down for my first warm meal of the day, when suddenly there are little hands tugging at my clothes, innocent eyes looking up at me while a sweet voice declares, "Ammi! Poopoo."

4. Little Perfectionist. When your toddler sees you lying down, with your eyes closed, body quite still - it doesn't just occur to her that you're sleeping (or trying to). She must make sure of the truth! She must come and shake you, poke you, repeatedly shout, 'Ammi, Ammi, AMMI!!!' until you groggily open your eyes to see what the ruckus is all about. Having thus annihilated any chance of getting the elusive nap, she will ask in the most innocent way, 'anna anna?' (in English: were you sleeping?) *facepalm*
Not anymore, Baby Girl, not anymore!

5. Kickfest! As soon as you conceive again, your child will miraculously decide that it is not enough to take over the family bed - no, Ammi must be kicked in the tummy repeatedly throughout the night. With as much force as possible.
(Obviously, the mountain of pillows comes into existence much before the third trimester in this situation!)

6. Little Helper. The 18-24month olds love 'helping' around the house. In our case, 'cleaning' with a 'toochoo' (tissue/wet wipe) is an all time favourite. Hand Baby Girl a wipe and watch her wipe down every surface in sight - the only unscribbled-on corner of the coffee table; the sofa; her face; your face (yes, in that order!). Far be it for her to clean in a way that actually helps Ammi. She is desperate to help, yes, but she will do it her way!

7. Randomness. Toddlers are the masters of random. It is not unusual for us to be treated to spontaneous bursts of nursery rhymes, 'Allah Allah' (anything religious like Surahs/Duas, in Baby Girl's own special language) and some very funny statements.
These incidents make great Facebook statuses, and more than make up for the exhaustion that seems to accompany parenthood. I'm going to make a scrapbook of all the statuses I've ever uploaded about my kiddos. One day. Soon. InshaAllah.

8. Best friends. There is something magical about the second year of your child's life. They are eager to use their burgeoning communication skills yet often need a translator (aka Mommy) to get their message across to the world.
This tight bond that the two of you share - the mutual knowledge that you will always know what they mean, regardless of their ability to express it, is precious beyond measure.
For now, you two are the best of friends. May this friendship last forevermore. Amen.

9. Baby weight. If you're still carrying extra weight two years postpartum, its probably your baby's fault. I mean, hey, someone has to finish off all those leftovers! I hate wasting food, and those toddler-sized leftovers seem harmless enough...until you end up eating an extra half meal at every meal.

10. Tete-a-tete. Conversation between a mother and a child is sacred. No one should interrupt just because THEY don't understand what the child is saying. If we don't listen to them when they're young, they won't talk to us when they're older.

11. Sleepy time. Naptimes and the hours after bedtime have a strangely ethereal quality to them - its a kind of peacefulness that comes with the certainty that the little one is safely ensconced in a room, without you having to supervise their 'explorations' and 'inspections' of everything. Needless to say, anyone who dares disturb the peace of the parents....I mean, the valuable sleep of a not viewed with friendly eyes.

12. Are you a perfectionist...or a slacker? I'm a slacker. There, I said it. And I had to make a conscious effort to become one. Being a perfectionist by nature, it was easy to fall into a pattern of constant criticism, complaints and condemnation. This was ruining the general atmosphere of the home and I realized we were getting sucked into a vicious cycle of negativity, all because of me. Because I was unable to let go of the little things and focus on the bigger picture. And so began the long and ardous journey of trying to maintain a positive demeanor - or, at the very least, a civil one, during trying times.

13. Keep calm and carry on. This is an important one for me. When I'm hungry/tired/rundown for any reason, I find I'm unable to handle even the slightest of stressful situations. With a toddler, this means that the little crises quickly escalate into big ones, which take that much more effort to deal with.
Solution: remain level-headed in every situation. Remember, YOU'RE the mature person, not your little one.

14. Grossed-out. NOT. You will reach a whole new level of grossness-handling ability. Recently hubby and I went out for dinner with our nearly 2 year old. She took a good sized bite of chicken, chewed it up, spit it out into her hand to inspect it, and put it back into her mouth. Then ate it. I didn't even bat an eyelid. Hey, if it didn't touch anything but her hand, its fair game. It came out of her own mouth, after all. (See what I mean?)

There are more - oh so many more that I meant to write but I was simply too busy/exhausted to actually write when inspiration struck. But this one is for sure - the LOVE - the completely overwhelming and all-encompassing LOVE for your child - that never reduces. And you think, how will I ever love anyone else with all this love for my baby overflowing from my heart? But miraculously, when He blesses you with another little person, He doubles the capacity in your heart as well. Subhanallah. (As I type this, we await the arrival of Baby Girl no.2. But the love is already present. I haven't met my precious angel yet, but already I love her beyond expression.)

          The truth about HG   
(This is an angry post. I apologize in advance.)

I'm going to come out and say it - I don't have morning sickness, ok? Its a mild case of Hyperemesis Gravidarum, and its horrible. Even though its 'mild', its absolutely horrible. And don't even get me started about the state of people who suffer from the severe form of this debilitating disease.

Right now, I am so angry and hurt and disappointed and generally low that for the longest time I didn't know what to write. I even thought whether it was worth writing. But it is, so here I am. Because the world needs to know how HG destroys the woman from the inside out. People need to research about it and support their loved ones during this hard time instead of making them feel worse than they already do.

Going through this a second time I have lost all patience with 'good intentions'. Educate yourself, people. Its not that hard.

You know you have HG when...

1) No amount of saltine crackers/ginger/peppermint even touches the nausea.
2) You need a bunch of pills just to 'survive'...and by survive I mean curl up on the couch like the living dead and watch your toddler destroy the living room.
3) You are unable to function like a normal human being - taking a quick shower requires herculean strength and makes you so sick and exhausted you just want to curl up and die and wonder why you bothered in the first place.
4) Doctors think you're just making it up and you stop using the term 'hyperemesis' just to avoid those sarcastic looks and comments.
5) Family members think you're just being overly dramatic. But when you try to explain they don't want to hear any of it because its all your fault because you didn't do XYZ or didn't eat such and such a thing and so you probably deserve it.
6) You struggle to keep food down, any food at all for 4 months straight, and the thing that stays down just happens to be a very specific brand and flavour of chips and soda. But people still think its ok to tell you that you're going to put on too much weight because you were already overweight to begin with, remember?
7) You spiral downwards into the worst kind of depression because HG renders you completely and utterly useless and people think you're lazy and irresponsible - and you don't even have the energy to correct them.
8) The weakness/debilitating nausea stays long after the vomitting subsides. Just because you're not vomitting does not mean you are 100%.
9) Being hungry worsens the nausea but eating makes you puke. Catch 22.
10) You can only keep down random things such as instant noodles from a particular company (safe foods) so as soon as you have a new safe food you stock up on it. Only to find it is no longer safe. So it seems prudent to not hoard food, but then when you have a craving for that particular thing you beat yourself up for not being far-sighted enough to keep extra. Catch 22 again.
11)There are times when you're too sick to eat and too hungry to sleep, and when you finally cry yourself to sleep you dream about food - only to wake up and puke your guts out at the mere thought of it.
12) Food aversions are your new best friends. The smell of fish cooked today makes you throw up several times daily for the next two days - and whenever you are unfortunate enough to think of it. Also, the revulsion to certain foods stays long after the baby is born - these smells become a reminder of a bleak period of time you would rather not think about.
13) Even after the worst is over, the smallest of puke session sends you into a full fledged panic attack.
14) Water becomes your worst enemy.
15) You want to cry tears of joy when you find a doctor who believes it is possible to still be puking your guts out beyond the first trimester.
16) You are not completely surprised when a doctor says angrily, 'What do you want from us?? What do you expect us to do?" because the medicines they gave aren't working and she thinks you're just wasting her time.
17) Suggestions/hints at lifestyle changes push you over the edge because you just want them to know HG IS NOT MY FAULT!! It is NOT caused by lack of sleep and eating vitamins/fruits/veggies will NOT make it go away!!
18) HG support groups and websites like become your lifeline.

P.s. Have an HG story? Share it! I'm all about HG awareness these days.

          Toddler-Friendly Food   
Assalam alaikum, peeps. 

Its been a whole ten (!!) days since my last post. The past two weeks have been absolutely, mind-bogglingly crazy, not least because of Baby Girl.

While the main cause of worry was (and is) her sleeping habits, her eating habits have also caused some concern. She's not always a fussy eater; but when she is, she makes sure not to eat a single thing the whole day. Except what falls on the floor. Oh yeah, floor food is the best. 

But I persevere. On her picky eating days I give her bread and butter, or Ella's Kitchen Puffits and raisins, to assuage my guilty conscience that atleast she's eating something. On the other days, if they happen to coincide with the days where I manage to cook actual food, I try new recipes. Because I really want us to have a varied, balanced diet. So what if the kitchen is an absolute mess and the sink (and the counter tops and kitchen table) are overflowing with dishes? If there is anything motherhood has taught me, it is that dirty dishes don't matter as much as full tummies and happy hearts.

And boy, were the tummies full and hearts happy with Chicken Pie and Cheesy Broccoli Bites! Not only hubby, but Baby Girl loved these as well. Baby Girl LOVED these foods! Can you sense my happiness? I found not one, but TWO fail proof recipes for my toddler that had actual vegetables in them! So, without further ado, the recipes:-

1. Chicken Pie

(This recipe was given to me by my oldest and dearest friend, Ms. Wardah Fayyaz - baking whiz and best friend extraordinaire.) 


500gm readymade puff pastry block
2 onions (chopped)
2 medium capsicums (chopped)
2 carrots (chopped)
2 medium potatoes (boiled and chopped)
3 chicken breasts (cubed into 1 inch pieces)
1 cup peas
1/2 sweetcorn (I used 1 cup because I love sweetcorn; feel free to adjust according to your taste)
Spices, to taste: salt, black pepper, paprika, chilli flakes
4 tbsp soya sauce
2 tbsp garlic paste
2 tbsp plain flour
1/2 cup cooking oil


1) Pour oil in a large pan, and heat on medium/high flame.
2) Add garlic paste to oil. Take care to step back, it will sizzle.
3) After a few seconds of cooking the garlic paste, add the chicken cubes. Cook till all the water from the chicken evaporates and oil separates.
4) Add onions; stir fry till translucent.
5) Now add spices and soya sauce. (At this point I also added a generous dash of lemon juice and 1 cube of chicken stock. And I didn't add chilli.)
6) Add veggies and stir fry on high heat for 5 mins. (I also added mushrooms and leeks, and omitted the potatoes.)
7) Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and mix well.
8) Finish off with 1-2 cups water; cover and cook for 5 minutes. You should have a liquidy, creamy texture. Pour into a casserole dish.

Directions for covering the dish with puff pastry taken from BBC Good Food:-

Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. On a floured surface, roll the pastry to the thickness of two £1 coins. Cut a long strip as wide as the rim of the pie dish and, using a little of the egg, fix to the edge of the pie dish. Brush with egg, then lift the rest of the pastry over the pie, using the rolling pin to help. Gently press the edges with your fingers and trim with a sharp knife. Brush lightly with egg to glaze, then bake for 30 mins or until the pastry is risen and dark golden brown.

Cheesy Broccoli Bites


  • 2 cup chopped – broccoli, raw
  • 2 large – egg
  • 1/2 tsp – salt
  • 1/2 cup, crumbs – panko (japanese bread crumbs)
  • 1/2 cup – parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoon – olive oil


  1. Steam 2 cups of broccoli
  2. Add broccoli, egg, salt, panko or bread crumbs, and parmesan cheese to a food processor.
  3. Blend just till chopped finely.
  4. Using 1 tablespoon at a time, form into balls.
  5. Heat oil in a skillet.  Drop balls of broccoli mixture into pan.  Flatten with a spatula and cook until both sides are crispy.

          Motherhood lessons: Year 1   
I've been meaning to write this for a long time, but I just didn't know how to start; where to begin. Classic case of writer's block. And then there was this status on the Facebook page of a blog (Confessions of a Muslim MOMmaholic), asking readers what was the greatest kindness someone had ever shown them (in terms of mommyhood) - or something to that effect.

And finally, at long last, this post happened.

1. It will be challenging. Like, pulling your hair out kind of difficult, on some days. But then they'll flash you that million dollar smile and you'll think, what was I on about?

2. Judging and being judged. Don't judge other parents, and if others judge you, that's their problem. Never before did I realize the importance of judgementalism. I have always been a very opinionated person, and when I saw something I didn't agree with, it was immediately wrong, in my eyes.
Now, of course, I know better (I think). If I see something I disagree with, especially in terms of parenting practices, I remind myself that only the parent knows what works for their child. And God knows parents need the benefit of the doubt more than the accusing finger!

3. Nappy rash. DO use a nappy rash prevention cream. We used Mustela Vitamin Barrier Cream (I'm not getting paid for this, I swear!). Alhumdulillah our baby hardly ever suffered from nappy rash. On the rare occasions that it did happen, Sudocrem was a lifesaver.

4. Disposable changing pads. Need I say more?

5. Disposable bibs. I got this tip off the internet (no idea which website, sorry). Someone had said in a forum that once baby was on solids, she started using disposable bibs outside the home. This way she didn't have to cart around dirty rags with food on them. I agree 100% - there is more than enough laundry to do without adding 'foodified' bibs to the mix.

6. Laundry. Speaking of which - every day will be laundry day. You will never be able to conquer the laundry monster. I still forge ahead valiantly, hoping that surely the day will arrive when all the dirty clothes are washed,dried, and (gasp!) put away; but so far, washing and drying are about as far as I have gotten. But I do not lose hope.

7. Baby clothes. The amount of clothes babies need is directly proportional to the speed with which they will outgrow them.

8. Dirty dishes. There will always be millions of them. Do them if you can, and don't if you can't. Just don't stress over it. Its not worth it. Instead, thank Allah (SWT) - that everyone is well fed, alhumdulillah. (And then go take a nap, or whatever.)

The list goes on..and on...and on. The list, the advice, it never ends - much like the wonders of motherhood.

These are about all the things I can remember at the moment. What have I missed out? Let me know your Motherhood Lessons in the comments section!

P.s. That awesome blog I mentioned (total hero worship going on here, by the way!) - here's the link:

          Notes to Self   
Forget about carefree dates with hubby; about peaceful, guilt-free me-time; about reasons for smiling that do not include your baby.
Forget about sleeping through the night or through the morning; forget about uninterrupted sleep, altogether.
Forget about not having to share your food and drink; forget about unhurried, uneventful mealtimes. Forget about junk food and fast food - don't want Baby Girl eating that, do you?
Forget about a life that was about you; forget about girlish notions and over-ambitious plans and unattainable goals; life is about the daily grind now.
And you wouldn't have it any other way.

          Contemplating the future of food   
  What is the future of food? This was the question posed to five chefs whose restaurants had previously been voted No. 1 by the jury of the World's 50 Best Restaurants awards. The prestigious panel included the legendary Ferran Adria of El Bulli, the restaurant that revolutionized the dining scene in the early 2000s, taking culinary artistry to a whole new level with molecular gastronomy. While El Bulli closed in 2011, its status as the World's Best remains unshaken, having been recognized as the World's No. 1 restaurant a record five times: In 2002, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. Adria was joined onstage by Rene Redzepi, the chef who has made foraging a part of the cul...

          Blizzard 2013   
"They" are calling for snow in the northeast.  New England is supposed to get pummeled.  Philly may get 12 inches...or nothing.  I remember as a kid how they would predict the weather and get it wrong most times.  It is usually spot on now a days.  Technology is the reason, I assume.

Anywho, when I start to prepare for the shut in, I start thinking about two things.  1.) What am I going to cook all weekend, while we tuck inside and 2.) I wish I were somewhere warm.  I have already decided that I will make short ribs and polenta and I wish I were in Brazil.  Rio to be exact.  I love Rio. A few years back, Manny had the opportunity to go to Brazil and play with the youth academy of the professional Brazilian soccer team, Fluminese.  It was incredible.  He lived with the team on their secluded campus and we camped out in Rio, on the beach.  It was July, but this was their winter.  The temps were in the 80s and it was incredible.  We have a very good friend who's wife is Brazilian.  She's lovely, but I always had trouble reading her.  After a day in Rio, I got her.  She was simply incredibly laid back and warm, not simply quiet and shy.  Brazilians are amazing.  The country is amazing.  The food is absolutely amazing. Amazing.

I could tell you a million stories, but the best was when I accidentally led my entire family into the favelas.  It was one of our first nights.  I had been told by a friend to go directly to one of those churrascarias.  She had recommended Porcao.  I did not have a proper map and took the one from the hotel and determined we could walk there.  Our hotel sat on the edge of Copacabana Beach & Ipanema Beach.  Porcao was in walking distance.  It was a chaotic walk and I determined the path.  As I led my family past the group of teens smoking pot and took the long steps up the hill, you think I would have thought twice.  Nope.  Arriving at the top of the stairs was a different world.  Motorcycles whizzed by, music poured from open windows, small kids ran down the street without shoes or shirts and stray dogs were running about.  Large groups of young men catcalled.  This was not a safe or welcoming place. John leaned in and told me that this was not the way to the restaurant.  I told him that I think we can walk to the end of the block and walk back down the steps.  We reached the end of the block and there were no steps.  A man approached and started barking at us in Portuguese.  We did not speak and just walked quickly away.  John whispered, "Let's retrace and go back."  Michaela grabbed my hand and expressed fear.  I told her not to talk and to relax.  We walked back down and arrived at our restaurant in a few minutes.  All was good.

Rio is like any large city.  Good parts and bad.  The topography is breathtaking.  It is a truly special place.  Brazilians are warm and friendly and their food is spectacular. I love it there and cannot wait to return.  Every day John insisted that we go to a juice bar.  The best one in Rio is Polis Sucos.  We visited at least twice a day.  For juice or a sandwich.  It is exceptional.  You find fruit there that you cannot find here.  My favorite was called Caju.  They translated it to Cashew.  It might have been the fruit that yields cashews.  Not sure and I have never been able to confirm this.  It tastes like if an apple and a grape had a baby.  Truly delicious.

So if you are holed up due to the weather, think of Brazil.  Eating feijoada and acai smoothies.  Think of the Cristo and playing on Ipanema Beach.  Go out and buy a bottle of Leblon Cachaca. Think of the ice cold beer and the gorgeous graffiti.  Have an ice cold Brahma Beer.  Cheers!

          Let's Talk About My Obsession   
Let's talk....  Mangosteens.  Any idea?  Let me give you some information.

"colloquially known simply as mangosteen, is a tropical evergreen treebelieved to have originated in the Sunda Islands and the Moluccas of Indonesia. It also grows in tropical South American countries such as Colombia, where the tree has been introduced. The tree grows from 6 to 25 m (20–82 ft) tall.[1] The fruitof the mangosteen is sweet and tangy, juicy, and somewhat fibrous, with an inedible, deep reddish-purple colored rind (exocarp) when ripe. In each fruit, the fragrant edible flesh that surrounds each seed is botanically endocarp, i.e., the inner layer of the ovary.[2][3]"  

This is from the Wiki.  I am completely obsessed.  Have you had them?  Fresh?  No?  Too bad.  Seriously.  I pity you. 

Story - John and I stole away to jolly old Londontown way way back.  It was a short trip and some of my besties gave recommendations and some arranged reservations.  Being in the fruit biz, so to speak, I am always curious.  Durian, you say?  Illegal in some parts, really?  Give me some of that!  A trip to Brazil was really a fruit hunt.  Some go on safari, I go to juice bars in Rio. Same.Same....  Back to Ripper's stomping grounds.  I was directed to visit Harrods.  "Do not bother to shop for clothing.  Just go straight to the food court.  It should not be missed."  This advice came to me by a very close friend who should be trusted.  We found Harrods and it is a sight.  After some searching and weaving, we arrived to the Willie Wonka-esque site that is the Food Court at Harrods.  Quite a show.  As we sometimes do, we split up.  John wandered off idea.  I found my way to the produce.  The plums, the peaches, the cherries, the....WTF?  are those Mangosteens?!!!!  I leaned in.  "Mum?  Can I be of assistance?" said the poofy hatted young Brit behind the glass.  "Why yes.  Are those mangosteen?"  

"Definitely."  She then reached into the case, pulled a plump purple ball from the pile and dug her nails into its flesh.  She handed me the halved fruit with its gleaming white treasure revealed.  

"For me?"  I took the fruit.  "Do I just..?"
"Just pop it into your mouth and savor.  Just the white part.  Be mindful of the pits."
"Thank you.  I just cannot tell you how excited and scared I am."
"Don't be.  It is enjoyable."

It was a moment.  I should have been alone.  The heavens opened and angels sung.  "AAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH........."  

I purchased 10.  No idea how much they cost. Don't care.  I handed over my credit card and took my little sack and searched for John.  London was waiting.  We walked the day away and finished the day at a Kabob shop.  I thought about the fruit all. day. long. We stayed at an adorable hotel in Chelsea.  Our little suite had two floors.  The top floor had a couch with a desk and tv.  Not glamorous, but comfortable.  I sat on the couch and eagerly spread out my booty.  "JOHN!!!  I am going in!"  He sprinted up the stairs.  Five for him and 5 for me.  I demonstrated how to eat the fruit.  He placed the first in his mouth and I awaited his response.  

Me:  "Well?  Thoughts?.....  Come. On!  John...."  He was killing me.
JR:  "They're...good."
Me:  "Shut up."
JR:  "Okay.  Really good.  Cannot figure out their profile, but I enjoy them."
Me: "Really?  I say they are a game changer.  Seriously.  They have changed my life."
JR:  "You really are a freak sometimes."

Yes, I am a freak.  Two days later we returned to Harrods.  John handed me some cash and I went straight to the mangosteens.  I purchased a pint of cherries and 10 mangosteens.  Upon realizing that I did not have enough queens in me pocket, I gave her my card.  I found JR.  I thought I was clear when he simply asked if I had any cash to get on the tube.  When I handed back the original amount he asked the question.  I had paid $60 for 10 mangosteen and a pint of cherries.  You have no idea the hell I paid.  

Dan scored 11 cases of mangosteen from John Vena at the docks.  I took home about 15 individual 'steens and eagerly fed them to my spawn. Michaela pronounced that they looked like Voldemort fetus, but enjoyed them none the less.  The boys requested the fruit for their lunches.  Sev even gave one to his teacher.  She is from Kenya and had never laid eyes nor ears on them.  They will be at all the cafes this week.  Mangosteen Sorbetto.  Get it while it's hot!

          It's Cold and Damp and I Just Want to BBQ   
It is chilly and damp in Philly.  A typical December day.  I keep looking out the back window at my Big Green Egg.  I love that thing.  I cannot tell you how many people around these parts look at my Egg with a puzzled look.  "What the...  What is that?  It looks like an alien pod or ...something."  Oh that!  That's my super awesome BBQ and smoker.  It took John several hours to assemble (he's not all that handy AND he's a perfectionist. Perfect storm).

When the Green Egg first arrived I could not really understand its power, its bravado, its general staggering magnificence.  I smacked some burgers on the grill, maybe some seafood.  Standard fare, really.  Then I accidentally got it up to 800 degrees and melted off the felt gasket.  That blew.  800 degrees prompted pizza.  A little too smoky.  Which got me thinking.  Smoky....  I pulled out my BBQ book.  I read, I studied and I became determined to tame this beast.  It's easy to get the temp up, but how to get it to a slow smolder.  Air was the answer and playing with it was my task.

I was ready.  I purchased a bone in pork shoulder.  Roughed it up and smacked it around with some salt, brown sugar and hot  pepper.  Got the Egg ready and added some soaked hickory chips and produced thick smoke.  In went the shoulder.  Two hours later, out went the charcoal.  Not a complete bust, as the shoulder eventually cooked, although it was dry and squeeky.  Know what I mean?  Some homemade BBQ sauce masked its imperfections and my choice of a brioche roll was not quite right.

After numerous tries, I got it down.  Don't give up, friends.  A promise is a cloud; the fulfillment is rain, said someone smarter than me and I am using it to suit my meaning.  I knew that if I kept at this Egg, it would yield something magical. I did not give up.  Eventually I arrived home, baby.  I used some super squishy yeasty rolls I purchased at a deli in Jersey that had little burnt onion pieces.  So delicious.  The meat was juicy and smoky and well, incredible.  The Egg did its job. It just needed some love and appreciation.  I had a Ferrari in the back yard and I was treating it like a 1985 Toyota Tercel.
          R Months = Oysters   
The weather has definitely taken a dip.  I woke up the other morning and assuming it was another warm summer day took the dogs for a walk in flip flops.  The air was cool on my arms and toes.  I look forward to the season's changes, but being in the "ice cream" business, I always worry.  The cooling temperatures are challenging, but I love wearing sweaters and we can drink hot chocolate and eat soup.  Fall means apples, pears, quince, pumpkins and black walnuts for gelato and sorbetto. It is a good thing.

John's birthday was yesterday and it was not the usual affair.  He requested (at my insistence, as the "honey, I don't care what you make, as long as we are all together..." line was not cutting it.  Choose motherfucker, so I can get to work) gnocchi and a red velvet cake.  I could not find red food coloring.  Living in Philadelphia limits my shopping options.  I have Whole Foods and corner stores in my neighborhood.  Neither carries red food coloring. I had to drive to the burbs for it.  Additionally, it was "back to school" night, Manny had soccer practice and Michaela had a soccer game.  Not a whole lot of time to bake a cake and make gnocchi.  By 5:45 it became apparent that I could not get it done.  I called John.  "Oysters."  That is all he said.  "Oysters."

Sansom Street Oyster House.  We ordered Kusshi, Fanny Bay and Little Shemogue oysters.  3 dozen.  We each had 2 Bulleit old fashions, and a bowl of clam chowder.  I love this restaurant.  The oysters are excellent, the drinks are excellent, our waitress was excellent and it is really a beautiful space.  Big and square, yet it manages to feel warm and quirky.  The walls are painted brick and covered with antique oyster plates.  We bumped into old friends, who live around the corner from the restaurant.  They are there often. He stated that he imagines that the plates came from some old woman's collection.  I added that she had a drawer filled with small silver oyster forks, that she polished once a week.  I think I may have to add oyster plates to my obsessive mind.  Ebay, here I come....

John and I stepped from the warm oyster house into the cool early fall night air.  We were going to walk home, but realized how exhausted we were.  The old fashions were clouding our heads and our feet seemed so heavy.  It was a nice birthday dinner.  Sev returns at the week's end from his camping trip.  I will make gnocchi and red velvet cake.  Fall is good.  
          Now that's a fire!   

Y'all know how crazy I am about food.  I live to eat. My family lives to eat.  I will go to just about any length for great food. Which led me to this purchase.  A wood burning beehive oven.  It is from Portugal and I am in love.  Last week I spent three days seasoning it, which involves starting with a small fire and building up to a rager over a few days before you can cook.  This bad boy cannot get wet.  I waited for the weather to be gorgeous and then I was off to the races.  It was the last week before the kids went back to school, so things were crazy.  The oven was slowly burning on the third day when my neighbor (who I really like) snagged me as I was walking to my car en route to picking my daughter up at practice.  "Did you get a smoker or something?  What is going on back there?"  I realized that my little exciting oven may not exactly please everyone.  I quickly pulled out my cracked iPhone (I am holding on until the 12th people!) and revealed my adorable oven.

"You have to admit you are jealous." I said as he leaned in his eyes narrowing in effort to make out the oven image through the splintered glass.  He laughed and told me that he expected an invite to dinner.  Done.  Could it be that the smell of hardwood burning for three straight days as smoke billowed over the high fence for hours on end was not appreciated?  Maybe I should have apologized....

Finally, the oven was seasoned.  It was Manny's birthday and what did he want?  Pizza.....  When the oven arrived on the 22nd, he wanted to know if it would be ready by his birthday.  I told him that if the weather cooperated that it would.  He quietly stated that if ready he wanted pizza in that oven.  I told him that I was going in green and it could be a bust.  He was willing to take a chance.

Just in case of a pizza fail, I fried up some zucchini flowers.  You can get Manu to do just about anything with fried zucchini flowers.  He obsesses about them.  I fry them in sunflower oil.  A few weeks back Whole Foods was out of sunflower, so I substituted my usual for high temp safflower oil.  I did not tell anyone this as it is not important and I continued.  The drill goes like this, as I batter and fry the flowers, my family hovers. As I place the finished flowers on a paper towel lined plate, hands are already reaching.  I fry four at a time, so one person (me) has to wait for the next batch.  I have to say EVERY TIME, "please wait, they need salt."  Salt is drizzled and did you blink?  They're gone.  I am always asked if I stuff them followed by some tale of how they had stuffed zucchini flowers with this or that...blah blah blah.  Never.  I will NEVER stuff them.  I digress...I fried the flowers in safflower and Manu grabs the first out.  Crunch....crunch... "Mom?  What's up with these?  They're...I don't know.  They don't taste as good.  They taste, I don't know.  Heavy?  Something is not as delicious."  John then chimed in that he agreed.  Okay freaks.....  I love them.  I had sunflower for his birthday.

Back to my oven.  We roasted some red tomatoes and some red peppers.  Manu got involved.  Although the laser thermometer seemed to entertain all, poking the peppers and watching the 1/2 sheet pan warp was a good time.  I wanted to drop the peppers directly into the ash, but was nervous.  It is amazing.  The oven was hovering around 600 degrees, but the tomatoes cooked slowly.  The peppers needed more time.  I should have left them in longer.  I will continue to work on it.  I cranked the oven up to 900 degress. It was pizza time and I was up to bat.  The first pie was a bit burned on the edges as I accidentally pushed it into a smoldering log.  Manu smiled big as I slid the pie onto the board in front of him.  He took a bite...slowly, very slowly he smiled.  "This is awesome mom.  Better than all of the regular oven pizzas.  I like the wood taste."  That was it.  Not another word as he was busy.  Manu is a tomato guy. We had tomato salad with some local heirlooms, those roasted tomatoes (which were so good, it should be a crime) and tomato pie.  He finished the night with a lemon meringue pie.  He does not like cake (weirdo).

All in all, the maiden voyage was a success.  I did burn the edges of two pies and completed busted up a third.  I tried to turn it into a calzone, but all was lost.  It is going to be a good fall....

          Sweet 16....   

My daughter turns 16 next week.  It is a bit painful for me.  Aging....not only her aging, but mine.  It is moving so fast.  Too fast.  It hurts that she is going to be in college in two years.  She is a handful, but is still a hilarious, brilliant, clever, beautiful pain in the ass that I really like to be around.  I am just trying to ride it through the bumpy parts.  She is a teenager.  Need I say  more?  She is the first up in "Birthday Alley."  9 days later her brother turns 14,  11 days later John, then Sev and last

Our birthday celebrations are quiet family affairs.  They choose dinner, no limits, and I execute.  For years Michaela chose matzoh ball soup, doritos, root beer and a chocolate cake.  After our trip to the UK last summer, she moved to chicken and ham pie, mashed potatoes, mushy peas, sparking cider served in ugly crystal glasses and a red velvet cake adorned with Fez's pic.  Manny changes each year.  Fish and chips, tacos, polpettone, or pasta....and a themed chocolate cake (FIFA, Italian Flag, Russian flag...)  Sev was gnocchi for years and years and a "donut" cake (bundt with sprinkles).  Last year it was linguine alla vongole.  John is gnocchi or osso buco and a red velvet cake.  Me?  I want to go out for Vietnamese food and lychee martinis.  I don't want to cook or do dishes on my birthday.  Oh, I want two Brown Betty's cupcakes.  1 red velvet, 1 coconut.

The kids think about their birthday dinners all year round.  We will be in a restaurant in February and one will ask (usually Sev), "Can you make this, mom?  For my birthday dinner."  I can.  You bet your ass I can.  I love cooking for my family.  Michaela's birthday is next week.  Chicken and ham pie menu for our quiet family dinner.  Sev immediately chimed in, "Can you do a boston cream donut cake?"  The kid likes donuts.

16 is a big deal.  In addition to her family birthday, she will go out with some friends.  They will don their sundresses and wear uncomfortable high heels.  She would like sushi at Umai, but it is so tiny.  Maybe Han Dynasty, but she wants something a bit fancy.  John is torturing her and telling her that as long as her brothers attend, she can pick absolutely any restaurant.  She fumes.  John is kidding, but he will not say so.  Her anger is too funny.  She is running out of time.  She needs to decide.

Sixteen...I only have a few more precious years of her daily laughter and eye rolling.

          Cali, Cali, Cali....I think so.   

During the holidays we took a family trip to our usual New Orleans. This year we decided to start in San Francisco, on to Tahoe, then to Nawlins. It was a quick trip, just to eat in San Fran. We walked and ate, visited with some friends and then were gone. Being that the trip was so condensed, I had to choose wisely. Where to go?

We arrived in San Francisco late. I hate arriving in the dark. My first impression of color and bustle of a city are extremely important. I remember the first time I arrived in Venice. It was extremely late and dark and deserted and cold and well, meh.... When John and I emerged early the next morning, I was hit with the chill of the November air and the colors! It was amazing. I like arriving in daylight.

The kids were exhausted, it was late and they were starving. We quickly jumped into a cab and made our way to Delfina in the Mission. Being exhausted, we did not notice that the pizza place and the restaurant were adjoined, but with separate entrances. Once seated, we realized that pizza did not appear on the menu. When we asked, they directed us next door. We felt like asses, but they assured us they were not annoyed. We walked through the door at 11:01pm to be informed that they stopped serving at 11. Even though we explained that we were sitting next door, nope, no dice. It was okay. We ran back and were served a most delicious dinner. I am happy we did not miss out. I would have been sad. Our waiter was amazing and the food superb. We would return for spectacular pizza in two days time.

The weekend was filled with the Ferry Building, the farmers market, trips to Bi-Rite (excellent) and burritos in the Mission. We had one of the best meals ever at La Ciccia. Spaghetti with bottarga, lamb, clams, it was divine! We spent our day walking around the city and eating. Chinatown was fantastic and a trip to City Lights was mandatory. I purchased some poetry by Bukowski and the kids each purchased a book, while John checked out the cigar stores on the block.

I have the Tartine cookbook. I use it often. We were about to leave the city to drive to Tahoe and I realized that I had not been able to get to Tartine. I told John that this was important to me. It was closed when we went to Delfina for pasta and I was not sure that I could miss Tartine. He agreed and we jumped in a cab. $28 dollars later (he was not pleased) we arrived at the famous bakery. The line snaked around the block. John looked over at a pizza that was just placed on an outdoor table at Delfina. Pizzatime!!! Why not? So what if we had just had lunch with friends in the Barcadero? As we waited outside for our table, Hilary Swank appeared at the door. I leaned over to my 15 year old daughter, "Bean (we call her bean), Hilary Swank is inside."
Bean, "What? Million Dollar Baby Hillary Swank?"
Me, "Yup. She's inside eating carbs."
Bean, "Cool. Do you think I can ask her about acting?"
Me, "No. Please ignore her. Let her eat."
Bean, "But...she's a million dollar baby."
Me, "Everyone deserves to eat pizza unmolested. It should be a law."
Bean, "You're right."

Our table was set and we walked inside. Our backs were to Ms. Swank and we happily ate our arancini, our salads and of course, our amazing, perfect crust pizza. I snapped pics of the kids laughing and our pizza. Suddenly, Ms. Swank appeared before our table and while looking in another direction, announced that she did not like people taking pictures of her without her consent. Amen, sister. Wait...was that directed at me?!! NO. I was not taking pictures of you. Want to go through my film? I could not have. What was going on? She then rushed behind me to a table and happily posed with them for some authorized pictures. Whew. Not directed at me. Honestly, you may be a million dollar baby, but I would not take a pic of you eating pizza. Not only is it not nice, but I do not worship celebrities. I worship food, architecture, books, travel and most important are my family's faces. Never fear Ms. Swank.

Finally, we walked over to Tartine. The line had not abated. 45 minutes later, we sat outside with a lemon tart, a slice of coconut cake with passionfruit cream, a banana cream tart (I think) and a few bags of cookies and some macaroonie thingies. It was delicious. The lemon tart was my favorite. Perfectly balanced, crisp buttery crust, not so sweet cream...lovely. I am glad we waited, although the service in San Francisco seems to be more about the servers than the product. There was no sense of urgency and absolutely no reason that I should have waited 45 minutes for ready made items. The people behind the counter were having conversations and laughing with each other. I thought, "HEY! GET TO WORK! PRONTO!" I have been told that this is an east coast vs. west coast thing. Cali is laid back and waiting is fine. It was worth the wait. Stay on the east coast! I am told. We waited 35 minutes for a cappuccino at Blue Bottle. It was delicious, but I am an addict. Addicts don't like to wait that long. I counted 14 people ahead of me. Maybe I am being unreasonable. It was very good coffee.

I think I may need more Cali in my life. I should not be so impatient.

          Tudor Eating   
I am obsessed with Tudor history. I am on my 6th book. I have read one book about Henry VIII, two about his wives, 1 about Anne Boleyn, and 1 about his mistresses. I am currently reading Food & Feast in Tudor Englan by Alison Sim. It is fantastic. I highly recommend it if you have any interest in being as nerdy as me. I went through a Roman history phase and read everything I could get my hands on that was written about on in the first century BCE to 4 century CE. Funny how I moved into English history.

This past summer we vacationed in England and Scotland. It was fantastic. There we are in front of Westminster Abbey. After a week in London, we left for Cambridge. I could not justify paying to enter to just lay eyes on the badge that has Hank and Anne's initials. Funny enough, in Italy they charge you for museums and the churches are free. In England, they charge you for churches and the museums are free. I cannot decide how I feel about that. It seems wrong on so many levels. I saw the queen's jewels, saw where Anne Boleyn and Katherine Howard had their heads lopped off and visited a bunch of famous dead people (of which no photography was allowed. How lame is that?)

On to Liverpool...we visited the official Liverpool FC store. People, you have no idea. Beatles tour, which was awesome, curry dinner and off to York. York is lovely. We had a proper tea at Betty's. It was spectacular. I know that British food is not Henry VII style, but we loved our English breakfast of eggs, beans, sausage and toast. The kids had tea and Sev stuck his pinkie out with style. We were so close to Hadrian's Wall that I forced John to travel 30 minutes out of his way to see it. Please people! I cannot travel here and not lay eyes on Hadrian's wall. That would be shameful. Just as John was losing his patience, he pull down some road and bam! there it was. So gorgeous, no?

Off to Scotland. Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aryshire, just to name a few. That is another post. England and Scotland are lovely. I am eager to go back. English food is delicious. Don't say it is because I am half English. Times have changed. Yet, what I would give to go back in time to the 16th century. Henry VIII survived on a diet that consisted of 80% protein, 15% alcohol, 5% fruit. Just to witness that kitchen and to taste that bread. I have always said that I would do almost anything to be deposited back to Rome in the 1st century. It is close. My next book is a beast. Elizabeth I by Alison Plowden. I love to stroll through history. We need to get on that time machine technology. Stat.


Such a majestic fruit. My childhood referred to this contraption as the "Chinese Apple". Anyone remember that? I remember the rare, and it was oh so rare, occasion that my mother would cave to my pleading and purchase one, and only one, at Foodtown. Foodtown.....hee.

Way back in the 16th century when Katherine of Aragon crossed the sea to the "Island" and married Hank (well, first his brother, but that tale is for another time), she brought with her badge (seen here). The pomegranate was to represent the persistence of life, fertility and regeneration. Which happened to be extremely important to a monarch.

Tis the season for pomegranates. Sometimes we are lucky to keep them into March. Right now, we are donning our garbage bags and wacking out the seeds with the backs of ladles. Seed by glorious seed. It is worth it. I love how our sorbetto is filled with small red flecks. I do get calls from puree people telling me how much money we would save buying juice. The POM people can sell me just the seeds released from their prison. Yes, yes I know. I will save money and labor and time! just does not taste as good. No one can tell...they say. I say...You can! You can tell the difference.

Get them while they are here because not unlike Queen Katherine, another young fruit is waiting to replace you...

          Recipe for Disaster!   

Being in the gelato business can be a bit stressful when the cold weather sets in. I find myself trying to distract myself with things that force you to stay inside. It is my version of yelling "LaLaLa!" with my fingers in my ears. I try to trick my sanity by having a reason to stay inside and ignore the icy temperatures. When the weather is breaking, I find that I am humming at a pretty high tone. I know that dogs in neighboring homes are rolling in agony with the frequency I am emitting. Like I have said in the past, y'all know I'm crazy.

So it is raining on Sunday, John's car was totaled while being parked across the street (teenager smashed into it) and the kids are stir crazy. What to do.... My mind is saying, it is supposed to be spring, you should be training for the Broad Street Run, why are your kids playing soccer in the room upstairs and not outside?!?!? See? Ca-razy. So I do what any crazy person does-I make ricotta and mozzarella cheese and try to perfect my bolognese sauce.

The ricotta cheese was pretty easy. I heated up the milk to 200 degrees, let it cool down to 90 degrees, added rennet and I let it sit. After some time the milk began to coagulate and I had ricotta.

On to my Bolognese. John's birthday was in September. He is hard to buy gifts for. Right now, if I were Oprah, I would buy him a car. I am not, sadly. Anywho, it was his birthday and I could not decide what to buy him. He is always yapping about making his own sausage. So...I bought him a meat grinder. It is awesome! I love it. We do not eat a lot of meat (about once a week), but the difference purchasing your own meat and grinding it makes is astounding. My meatballs are spectacularly soft and resilient. I love grinding meat. Sounds so dirty, but I do.

So, go out and get yerself some high quality meat. There is nothing wrong with eating meat, there is just something really wrong with our meat industry. These are some great options in Philly. If you have the luxury of going to Reading Terminal Market, check out the meat producers. Some are your run of the mill standard butcher, others have locally, humanly, all natural meat. My personal favorite is the Fair Food Stand. They have exceptional products and the people behind this organization are not only smart, good business people, but I really really like them. They do not sell food with judgment. They love to educate and want to help, not preach. Tell them what you are looking for and they will help. If they do not have the product you are looking for, they know where to get it. They continually assist me in finding farmers and connect me to like minded peeps in my field. Trust. If you do not have this luxury, and it is a luxury, Whole Foods carries local beef and pork. Before grinding, it is best to get your meat really really cold. 10 to 15 minutes in the freezer is good. For bolognese, I like 2 pounds of chuck and 1 pound of boneless pork shoulder. Cut into 1 inch cubes. See above?

I like to grind the meat with the medium plate twice. Yup twice. Twice through really minces up the meat and fat with out making mush. Hate mush.

Cut up in small dice:
1 large onion
4 ribs of celery
4 carrots
Saute all above in some olive oil. When it is soft and your onion is transparent, add ground beef, hefty pinch of salt and pepper and a good grinding of nutmeg.

Stir, stir, stir.....

When the meat has lost it's pink color, add
1 cup of whole milk.
Let milk bubble away until gone, baby gone. You will know.

1 cup of nice white wine
Let bubble away.

Add Two Cans of high quality canned tomatoes. I love Francesca San Marzano. Crush them before you add.

Stir, stir, stir.

Let cook at a slow simmer all the day long. The fat will start to rise to the top of the sauce. Skim that disgusting fat off! Make sure you have a delicious hunk of bread around to dip into your sauce all day long. It needs testing. If your sauce seems too thick, add a bit of water. Make adjustments for salt. Test alot. Make sure you have a nice big loaf of ciabatta. Trust.

Serve with some big pasta, pecorino romano cheese, dabs of fresh ricotta and a colossal salad.

Disaster outside? Make bolognese. And yes, I know, the grinder was for John. I cannot just let it sit there, lonely next to my kitchen aid. It was begging to be used. John is happy.

          Philly Magazine and CapoGranola   

So, yeah.... I am incredibly awkward. I hate having my picture taken. Possibly because I am vain and I will constantly stare at my pictures focusing on the dozens of my imperfections. Do you? I cannot seem to help it. I prefer to look at my pictures and just smile and mentally bring myself to the moment the shutter snapped, me behind it. I love looking at my kids and their smiles and my husband and his exaggerated expressions and even all those pictures of food. But me? No thanks. If I am featured, I cannot help, but stare at the crooked tooth. Yuck.

When Philadelphia Magazine called and asked me to be a part of February's "The Celebrity Chef Diet" I agreed. I love Philly Mag. They asked for a pic and I sent them my headshot. I heard back. "Steph, we love your picture, but we are going to do something different. Can you make it in for a pic?" Run a marathon, sure, take my picture? Gulp.....So there I was, standing on a big white platform in my running gear trying to look "normal". The poor editor and photographer tried to get me to look more natural, not to smile so hard, to be 'lighter'. It was close to impossible. All the other chefs were watching and my inner dork was screaming. The photographer tried to ease my unease and sent compliments over. Thanks, man, but I cannot relax. "Why?" he asked. "Because I just feel awkward and uncomfortable. Like I am about to fart really loud." Everyone laughed and funny enough, my bottom lip stopped shaking and he was able to take the pic. So embarrassing. I am such a geek.

That said, our amazing CapoGranola was featured in the article. We have received a ton of requests for the recipe. Here it is. I eat it almost every morning.

makes 6 servings

6 cups rolled oats (not the quick cook kind)
2 1/4 cups pepitas
2 1/4 cups sliced almonds
2 1/4 cups unsweetened coconut flakes

2. Melt butter and honey together in a small saucepan over medium low heat, stirring until combined and bubbling slightly.
3. Pour butter mixture over oat mixture. Toss with a spatula until dry ingredients are evenly coated.
4. Pour mixture in an even layer onto a sheet pan lined with a Slipat.
5. Bake 10 minutes, the rotate pan and stir granola to ensure even cooking. Bake another 10 minutes until granola is a dark golden brown and crispy. Remove from heat and cool completely.
6. Transfer cooled granola to an airtight container. Break into pieces, add dried cranberries and mix will.

Keeps for weeks in an airtight container.

If this is too much, we sell it at Capo. I love granola.

          The Beck Diet Solution: Train Your Brain to Think Like a Thin Person   
The Beck Diet Solution is the Missing Ingredient in Weight Loss

  • Lose weight with confidence and keep it off for a lifetime!

  • Battle your sabotaging habits!

  • Resist tempting food - even if it's right in front of you!

  • Confidently say, "No, thank you" to food pushers!

  • Put an end to emotional eating!

  • Confidently say, "No, thank you" to food pushers!

  • Conquer every excuse you've ever used to overeat, binge, or backslide!

    Any sensible diet will help you lose weight, but the challenge for 90% of Americans is actually staying on the diet they choose. Enter Dr. Judith Beck and The Beck Diet Solution. Dr. Beck, one of the foremost authorities in the field of Cognitive Therapy, has created a six-week plan that will help people stick with their diet, lose weight with confidence, and keep weight off for a lifetime. This program is not only based on the author's personal success and on her success with her many clients, but also on published research. It all starts with how you think. With other programs, you think about nothing but food: counting, weighing, and worst of all, food you can't have. This way of thinking inevitably contributes to diet failure. The Beck Diet Solution is the only program that helps dieters use Cognitive Therapy methods--scientifically proven over 20 years--to forever change those treacherous thought patterns that lead to overeating, cheating, excuses, and other dieting downfalls.


    This breakthrough six-week plan assures success by helping you assess the advantages of weight loss, pick a sensible diet and exercise program, set a goal, line up support, and prepare your environment--all this before starting any diet. This unique approach is key to preventing the downfalls that so often lead to failure.

    A new task is presented each day to build psychological skills to deal with the challenges of hunger and craving, overeating, alcohol, eating out, special occasions, vacations, stress, and much more. Healthy habits are established with to-do lists, reasons and ways to do the tasks, and how to deal with negative thoughts. One day a week is designated to "Take a Breather."

    Easy-to-use, flexible, and proven tools are found throughout the program, including daily goals; weekly planner pages; and motivational coping cards for handling time/energy hurdles, eating out, and other high-risk situations.

              Here's What Happens When You Quit Smoking   

    If you smoke, quitting is an essential strategy to return to good health. However, I strongly recommend that you first get your diet under control as the implications of a poor diet may outweigh those from smoking and those who are in the process of quitting may turn to food to help alleviate their cravings.

              Creating the Best Compost   
    There are many books and methods for creating the best compost, but I have come to find that following the worlds best compost recipe wont take your precious time.

    I'm with you on the time thing!

    All I can say is that if you spend ANY time in your garden you can't afford WASTING it by NOT feeding your plants as nature intended with colloidal humus.

    What is colloidal humus?...well, its kinda like butter - you know you can spread it, and squash it but its not a liquid like water. It sticks together. Thats the end result of the compost you will create using the worlds best compost recipe.


    You'll spend less time mollycoddling your less healthy plants along fighting with pest and disease problems, replanting the failures and perhaps watering perhaps 3 times as much. Instead spend one day a year constructing a colloidal humus compost heap and reap the time benefits (and wonderful food) for the rest of the year.

    You can get the worlds best compost book here, or read more about gardening with the worlds best compost here.

              From Cyborgs to Hacktivists: Postfeminist Disobedience and Virtual Communities   
    Carolyn Guertin

    For many the term postfeminist might call to mind the vanilla pleasures of metrosexuality, webcams, online soaps, and blog culture, but, for me, a 40-something cyberfeminist scholar, curator and some time activist, the politically-minded feminist texts I work with are in fact dyed-in-the-wool postfeminist ones that occupy a different place on the postfeminism continuum from those more loudly-lauded, lighter confections. Usually given a bad rap by the media, postfeminism has been accused of being antifeminist, whereas it is instead what the next wave of second wave feminism has become. Its name is not a marker or movement that intends to imply that feminism is dead and gone, any more than Donna Haraway’s “postgender” and N. Katherine Hayles’ “posthuman” mean the death of those old shoes. As Ann Brooks puts it in Postfeminisms, “the concept of `post’ implies a process of ongoing transformation and change” (1). Postfeminism is that indicator that shows us the organism formerly known as feminism has grown into something far more complex than its liberal origins would lead us to expect.

    In the late 1980s and early 1990s, second wave feminism, which had spoken predominantly from and to a position of white middle class privilege, began to fracture to include a broader chorus of voices, classes, and races. Postfeminism or, more exactly, postfeminisms have expanded to include a multitude of situated perspectives within the context of postmodern thinking, and have swelled to embrace the new emphasis on what Michèle Barrett identified in 1992 (the year that the World Wide Web was born) as “fluidity and contingency” - features that are the trademark stock in trade of the cyber age. Barrett believed feminism’s paradigm shift to be the result of a new interest in culture that in turn gave rise to a whole new collectivity of subjectivities. It is no accident that this shift coincided with the advent of a technology that foregrounded networked communications. It was only a few years earlier, in the fledgling days of the personal computer back when the Internet was still a vehicle predominantly for hackers and technogeeks, that Haraway first articulated a politics of connectivity for women in the context of these new technologies. In her “Cyborg Manifesto” Haraway’s half-woman, half-machine revels in the confusion of body boundaries and fractures all sense of an originary unity or simplex gender through embracing the cyborg as a model: a being who revels in discursivity, multiplicity, hybridity, and perversity. As the Web has evolved, it has become something of a gene pool for creative explorations of sexualities, subjectivities and identities - and has proved to be as liberating for men as for women in that regard. Cyberfeminist scholar Sadie Plant even argues for the feminizing influence of technology in a connected age. Without a doubt, though, this new technology’s most important role has been that of facilitating communication.

     “cyberfeminism is post-feminist” (76) Cyberfeminism was born at a particular moment in time, 1992, simultaneously at three different points on the globe. In Canada, Nancy Paterson, a celebrated high tech installation artist, penned an article called “Cyberfeminism” for Stacy Horn’s Echo Gopher server. In Australia, VNS Matrix (Josephine Starrs, Julianne Pierce, Francesca da Rimini and Virginia Barratt) coined the term to label their radical feminist acts and their blatantly viral agenda: to insert women, bodily fluids, and political consciousness into electronic spaces. That same year, British cultural theorist Sadie Plant chose the same term to describe her recipe for defining the feminizing influence of technology on western society and its inhabitants.

    -Judy Wajcman

    Connectivity has been called the genius of feminism by theorist Robin Morgan (53), and this genius is being realized in electronic spaces and texts in more complex ways than in any other medium to date. Connectivity is the poster child of the postfeminist universe, which is why the first cyberfeminist collective, VNS Matrix, chose the image of the matrix - the cosmic womb - as its symbol The Australian collective VNS Matrix announced its inception with a rallying cry called the “Cyberfeminist Manifesto”:
    We are the modern cunt
    positive anti-reason
    unbounded unleashed unforgiving
    we see art with our cunt we make art with our cunt
    we believe in jouissance madness holiness and poetry
    we are the virus of the new world disorder
    rupturing the symbolic from within
    saboteurs of big daddy mainframe
    the clitoris is a direct line to the matrix
    terminators of the moral code
    mercenaries of slime
    go down on the altar of abjection
    sucking the visceral temple we speak in tongues
    infiltrating disrupting disseminating
    corrupting the discourse/we are the future cunt
    Its separatist nature bears a resemblance to philosophies put forward by hackers.
    . Another cyberfeminist collective, the Old Boys’ Network, defined its local chapters as “nodes” that “collide, disintegrate, regenerate, engage, disembody, reform, collapse, renew, abandon, revise, revitalize, and expand” (OBN FAQ 7). These structural and mechanical concerns are not accidental. Postfeminisms do not inhabit a network; they are the network of feminist discourse in virtual space and they are at their best when they are helping to forge communities of practice. In its incarnation most familiar to ebr ‘s readers, the electronic, hyperlinked text is both a narratological structure and the means of navigation in space and time. In the webbed space of hyperlinked fiction, the pregnant gaps between the nodes are at least as important as the textual nodes themselves. The nodes exist in conjunction with the dynamic space of the journey and cannot be discussed in isolation. So with the newest literary forms of the postfeminist universe. They cannot be separated from the communities and material praxes that they both engender and nurture on and off the Web.

    In the cyberfeminist corner of the postfeminist universe, girl gamers such as Brenda Laurel and Mary Flanagan immediately spring to mind; so too do techno-performers such as Laurie Anderson and Coco Fusco, and new media artists such as Mez or Olia Lialina, but the most important and distinctive Web-native postfeminist form is, I would argue, hacktivism. The term was first coined in 1998 The rallying cry of hackers has long been “information wants to be free.” to describe an emerging hybrid form that united the best attributes of peaceful social protest - activism - and tech-savvy online civil disobedience - hackerism The term “hacktivism” has been attributed to a Toronto-based hacker who goes by the handle of Oxblood Ruffin.. It is a solution-oriented form of political action that inserts bodies and media-based dissent into real time material concerns. It should not be confused with its adolescent and illegal cousins, cractivism - code cracking, vandalism, data blockades (DDos) and the loss of digital data - or cyberterrorism - acts and agents of wanton destruction including worms and viruses. One of its trademark features is that the Web cannot contain hacktivism’s flows, allowing it to spill out into the world in the form of political protest at WTO and G8 events, for example, and in books, pamphlets,, and performance art.

    Hacktivism as a praxis was born in December 1997 when Critical Art Ensemble Critical Art Ensemble has been very much in the news lately since one of its members, Steve Kurtz, a professor in the Department of Art at SUNY Buffalo, was arrested on 12 May 2004 and charged with bioterrorism under the American Anti-Terrorism Act. These trumped up and widely protested charges have resulted in the FBI appropriating CAE’s materials and equipment used for testing for the presence of genetically- modified DNA - the tools CAE uses in creating their political art. member and software engineer Carmin Karasic was so appalled by the events of the Acteal Massacre - 45 Zapatistas were murdered at the hands of the Mexican government - that she set out to create a Web interface that would perform political protest as an aesthetic act. Three other Critical Art Ensemble members joined her in forming a new collective they named the Electronic Disturbance Theatre. (The group’s name is drawn from the concept of civil disobedience first proposed by Henry David Thoreau.) Their electronic civil disobedience engine is named FloodNet; funded by RTMark and launched in September 1998, it is Karasic’s brainchild in her war against injustice. Filling the browser page with the names of the dead, this activism tool “would access the page for Mexico’s President Zedillo seeking bogus addresses, so the browser would return messages like “human_rights not found on this server” (Cassell). Unlike the attacks launched by cracktivists, no damage is done by this software agent. When the Electronic Disturbance Theatre alerts its “online activists to `commence flooding!’” they visit EDT’s website and click on FloodNet’s icon (Harmon). The software then directs their browser to the target, and cues the same page to load over and over again.

    As a postfeminist work, it is no accident that FloodNet must function as a community-based performance:

    FloodNet’s action only drew its validity from the number of people showing support. “It was only actualized through thousands and thousands of participants,” she remembers. “It was meaningless without the masses.” Popular support transforms a random act of vandalism into a show of presence, Karasic argues. “This is an important difference between the single hacker/hacktivist who takes down a server with a single script” (qtd. in Cassell).

    Similar to the disruptive aestheticization of codework by the Dutch trio, Karasic sees her collectivity interface as something more closely akin to “conceptual art” than to cyberterrorism (Harmon). No one and no data are harmed in these `attacks,’ but websites are effectively shut down while the protest is being transmitted.

    Advancing human rights through the electronic media is also the purview of another collective, a cyberfeminist one called subRosa. It is currently comprised of Laleh Mehran, Hyla Willis, Steffi Domike, Lucia Sommer, and Faith Wilding. It was also formed in the fall of 1998 - around the same time that Karasic was vowing to respond to Mexican excesses with FloodNet. Donna Haraway was the first to identify science as one of the most insidious cultural forms women needed to address to regain control of their bodies; subRosa follows in that tradition. subRosa uses its art to critique “the relationships between digital technologies, biotechnologies and women’s bodies/lives/work” (Griffis). The goal of these hacktivists, akin to the Electronic Disturbance Theatre’s, is the creation of communities, what they call “female affiliations that respect difference and create productive projects in solidarity with others who are working on similar ones” (Griffis).

    Embracing bell hooks’ definition of feminism as that which seeks to eradicate ideologies of domination (qtd in Griffis), subRosa undertakes projects of activism and public education on topics as wide-ranging as eugenics, Frankenfoods, stem cell and cloning research, and Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART). Seeing their purpose as a pedagogical one, they launch inclusive electronic campaigns, publish pamphlets and books, and travel out into (particularly third world) communities to perform their topical art. These are what they call resistant projects, tactical cyberfeminist ones, and situational information theatre: “As cyberfeminists and artists we are using the framework of participatory performance as an information theatre of pedagogical art that models various tactics for intervening and commenting on the seductive representations of the flesh machine” (subRosa). One of the keys to their successful distribution of information is their willingness to mix media and cross boundaries, producing their art and materials in a plethora of formats contextually situated for their audiences. Like FloodNet’s participatory form, subRosa’s mode of information distribution is reproducible, for it argues “[i]n the digital age, resistant cultural producers can embrace recombinance for subversive ends” (subRosa).

    All of this may seem somewhat removed from the electronic book and literary traditions, but when postfeminisms meet the new media they encourage these kinds of pleasures in the confusion of boundaries between bodies, texts, technologies, politics, and cultures. In a hyperlinked age when the only true path through a text is a personal journey, the many roads of postfeminism show that comminglings of radical politics and material concerns are alive and well in both the virtual and real worlds. How effective these hacktivist actions are is difficult to measure, but they are remarkable as tools for global mobilization and peaceful protest. It is clear that they are very effective at allowing women’s voices to be heard.

              Lady's Chocolate Chip Cookie & Cookie Butter Skillets   
    Lady's Chocolate Chip Cookie and Cookie Butter Skillets - made May 26, 2017, modified from Modern Honey
    I've come to believe that one of the easiest "comfort food" desserts you can serve is the chocolate chip cookie skillet. There's nothing like warm chocolate chip cookies. Served with ice cream. Baked in a cast iron skillet. Oh, and while you're at it, put some nutella to slowly melt over the warm cookie. Because....why not? Okay, yeah, you're going to have to do some massive workouts and live on rabbit food for 3 days but it's worth it. Especially this one.
    It's also quite versatile. If you have some non-chocolate lovers (I know, I don't understand them either), you can make the dough and right before you add the chocolate chips - which, hello, make the whole thing - separate out the plain dough and add cookie butter to that batch instead. No need to mix it into the actual cookie. I layered it into the cookie skillet for a cookie butter cookie skillet. It's hard to top a brown sugar sugar/cookie butter combination.
    Unless, of course, you make the traditional chocolate chip cookie skillet with big milk chocolate chips, bake it, then spread a layer of nutella to melt over it. And serve it warm with vanilla ice cream. Yes, it was as good as that just sounded. Or better.
    Chocolate Chip Cookie Skillet covered with Nutella
    While chocolate chip cookie skillets are easy to make, you do want to make sure you choose a chocolate chip cookie recipe that spreads. I know, that's against my usual grain of thick, chubby, chunky cookies that remain thick with very little spread. But since it's in a skillet, you want it to spread at least enough to make it to the edges of the skillet. Otherwise, you'll get a weird cookie in the middle of a skillet that looks like it didn't need to be baked in a skillet. Plus the cookies that spread tend to be more buttery and less floury, also a good thing.

    The cookie butter, chocolate-chip-less version was also good. It's hard to see the cookie butter in the picture below which only means I should've used more. But it, too, was good. Next time you have a group of friends or family over for an informal meal, this is a good dessert topper for a casual gathering.
    Cookie Butter skillet cookie
    1/2 cup butter
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 egg
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 cup + 1 tablespoon flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup milk chocolate chunks
    1/3 cup cookie butter
    vanilla bean ice cream
    1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Spray two 6-inch cast iron skillets with nonstick cooking spray.
    2. In a small heavy saucepan, melt brown over medium heat, stirring often, until it bubbles and milk solids turn brown. Turn off heat and add brown sugar and granulated sugar, stirring until completely blended. Cool slightly.
    3. Add egg and vanilla, stir until combined.
    4. Add flour, baking soda and salt. Stir until well combined.
    5. Pour half of the cookie batter into 1 6" skillet, adding dollops of cookie butter and covering with dough,
    6. Add milk chocolate chips to other half of the cookie batter and pour into second skillet. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until edges are lightly golden brown and middles no longer look like raw dough. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
    7. Add vanilla bean ice cream and serve.

              Kenji Darvish of Golden Bomber: "That pissed me off. Why would shop employees tweet that?"   

    1: Egg ★@\(^o^)/:2014/07/08(火) 08:28:36.63 ID:???
    There has been no end to instances of celebrities being tweeted about our photographed when seen out in the street, and Kenji Darvish has expressed his anger on his blog after experiencing a similar fate.

    July 8, Darvish updated his blog: "Apologies for this late night update... I just got pissed off". Darvish did not mention the name of the restaurant, the person, and the tweets in question, but he said: "I was just eating at a restaurant a while back, and I'm not sure if that guy was a staff member, but it seems that person tweeted the events as they went on; in full detail".

    "It didn't seem like anyone noticed me at all... Where were they watching me from? Scary!". "To think that the food was actually good. How should I put it, this just left me with such a bad aftertaste. Actually, it gave me a bad impression.".

    Not just celebrities, but intrusion into one's privacy is generally not accepted. "Why would shop employees tweet something like that? Weren't they taught not to do such a thing? I have experience in customer service and I really don't get this. I don't think I can eat out in peace anymore. It's all so troublesome." "Stress! I'll go run for a bit."

    Other Twitter incidents involving celebrities are Junichi Inamoto and Miho Tanaka's date before they got married in 2011, which turned into a huge media circus. Recently, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Ebizo Ichikawa both complained about being pictured without permission last month. Akemi Darenogare and Hachimitsu Jiro also complained about similar incidents soon after.

    I understand that when someone takes your picture, it's like a violation of your image rights. Then what do you call this one? I'm not sure, but I don't think there are enough laws being enforced for the protection of personal privacy.

    What's the point of him writing something like this on his blog? It's not like he's even revealing the name of the restaurant. He probably just wanted comments like "Poor thing, hug me!" from his fans.

    A large amount of potato chips were disposed of in Kobe City and Akashi-shi of Hyogo prefecture, as the Hyogo Police arrested Ikki Fukumoto (25), an office worker who resides in Hyogo prefecture's Uozumicho Shimizu, for illegal dumping.

    The suspect disposed 89 boxes, totaling to about 1,000 bags of potato chips (total weight of 208 kilos) between May 4 and May 23 in 6 areas within Kobe City and Akashi City, such as in the woods and in empty lots. The suspect comments: "I did buy a lot of these, but I didn't know what to do with them so I just dumped them".

    According to the police, the potato chips came with entry stubs for a chance to win seiyuu Nana Mizuki's concert tickets, as Mr. Fukumoto only cut the stubs out and did not eat the contents. Entries were only valid until the end of May.

    I just checked in 7-11 right now, and one BIGBAG costs 275 yen (296 yen after taxes). He bought a thousand of these, that gave him double points (6 points) so all in all he spent 3 million yen, which is accurate with the report. This promo was only done at convenience stores so he wasn't able to purchase the chips at the grocery with their lower prices.

    For all those people who think that Trump's tweets are brilliant at reaching the public and throwing his opponents off balance or whatever other bit of analysis used to show that somehow he's playing three-dimensional chess while the rest of the world can't even set up the checker board, is this really a set of tweets that makes you proud that he's your president?

    These morning tweets follow other tweets touting ones supporting policy actions by his administration and the GOP. Does he think anyone will pay attention to any of that when he's tweeting comments on a morning show's appearance and the show's ratings? It's as if he's taken a master a class on self-sabotage.

    Isn't he supposed to be in the middle of trying to help a GOP repeal of Obamacare?

    Remember when conservatives ridiculed Obama interview talking to GloZell, the woman who is mainly known for eating cereal while sitting in a bathub of milk or going on Between Two Ferns? Well, was any of that less respectful of the office of the presidency than such tweets? I have come to regard Trump's tweets as a verbal expression of his id. That is the level he operates at and we get a glimpse at what impulses control him through Twitter. All his advisers urging him to focus on policy and presenting an image of gravitas are the ego trying to mediate between those impulses and reality. They might win out for hours, even days sometimes, but the id is there ready to take over.

    There used to be a time when Republicans claimed that character mattered in the presidency. Today...not so much.

    Canada thinks it can control the Internet.
    The Supreme Court of Canada ruled against Google on Wednesday in a closely-watched intellectual property case over whether judges can apply their own country's laws to all of the Internet.

    In a 7-2 decision, the court agreed a British Columbia judge had the power to issue an injunction forcing Google to scrub search results about pirated products not just in Canada, but everywhere else in the world too.

    Those siding with Google, including civil liberties groups, had warned that allowing the injunction would harm free speech, setting a precedent to let any judge anywhere order a global ban on what appears on search engines. The Canadian Supreme Court, however, downplayed this objection and called Google's fears "theoretical."
    Charles C. W. Cooke comments,
    That amusing episode of The I.T. Crowd notwithstanding, “the Internet” is not a single black box somewhere in London, but a massively decentralized network of networks that, while conforming to a few agreed-upon technical specifications, gives new meaning to the word “diffuse.” Or, put another way, “the Internet” is a patchwork quilt of cables, satellites, switches, service providers, cell phones, desktops, laptops, web-servers, and protocols that, taken together, forms the sprawling web to which we are all so accustomed. The beauty of this arrangement is that anybody can participate. Want to be the next Facebook? To start with, at least, all you’ll need is a domain name, an internet connection, and a computer, and . . . that’s it. Though there are certain breakpoints (IP allocation, root DNS, etc.), there is no central permission structure that newcomers have to navigate. It’s open. It’s wild. It’s wonderful.

    Now, this is not to say that censorship is impossible. It’s not. If a government wishes to block access to a particular site within the physical borders over which it has jurisdiction, it can do so. Likewise, websites and services that contradict local law can be legally removed, and, if it so wishes, a government can demand that any organization operating on a network within its borders must conform to its rules. What it can’t do, however, is export those judgments abroad.

    Suppose that I, a permanent resident of the United States, were to host a website that contained speech that was banned in, say, Germany. Certainly, the German authorities could prevent Germans from seeing my site. And, if anyone chose to mirror my site on server inside Germany, they could shut that person down quite quickly. But they couldn’t have me shut down in America, and they couldn’t prevent people in other countries from accessing my site over the web. My server would be in America, connected to a network in America, subject to the law in America, and guaranteed the protections to which Americans are entitled. The German government, annoyed as it might be, would have to accept that....

    And that, ultimately, is why the Canadian Court’s decision is so hilarious. I understand why people are worried about the idea — if taken seriously, it would give any less-free-than-America country an effective veto over the First Amendment. But they shouldn’t fret too much: The judges can say what they like, but their edict is simply unenforceable. If it wishes to do so, the government of Canada can prevail upon Google to abide by its rules within Canada. In addition, it can regulate the web in Canada to prevent access to sites it dislike. But it can’t force Google in America or France or Australia or Singapore to do a single goddamned thing. And thank goodness for that, eh?
    I hope that he is correct, but we've seen the EU slapping a $2.7 billion fine on Google because the EU thinks it violates antitrust for Google to promote Google Shopping sites over other shopping sites. I'm not sure what there is about a FREE service like Google that the Europeans don't understand. Are European citizens actually hurt by Google giving them a free shopping search engine and then putting their items at the top? Would they prefer to pay for their search engines? Please, just keep your hands off Google. As more countries try and figure out ways to make money off of fining Google, they should consider the unintended consequences.
    “The EU has effectively decided that some companies have become too big to innovate,” Robert Atkinson, president of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, a Washington-based think tank, said in a statement following the Google Shopping decision. “The EU’s actions have created a cloud of uncertainty that will make large tech companies overly cautious about making changes to the user experience and service offerings that would benefit consumers.”

    to explain why Obama didn't do more about Russia's attempts to interfere in our election last year.
    But the real problem here is not so much Barack Obama’s failure to act as the most plausible reason for his inaction: Vladimir Putin’s capers didn’t impact the election results.
    Despite the efforts by Democrats to blame Russia for Hillary Clinton's loss and their frustration that Obama didn't do more about it, there really is no evidence that the WikiLeaks revelations from John Podesta's emails had any effect on the course of the election.
    But there’s a simpler, even more plausible explanation for Obama’s inaction: The president saw that the hacking was having almost no impact on the course of the campaign and thus wasn’t going to mess with the results. Far from the crime of the century, it was, at worst, a minor annoyance to Clinton that Obama obviously felt didn’t warrant a major dustup with Putin.

    It’s true that Russia’s actions were outrageous and deserved a strong US response, both then and now. It can also be argued that the public had a right to know about it. But it was only after Clinton lost and she and her supporters began searching for excuses that Russia’s actions were considered an important factor in the outcome.

    While Putin was way out of line, the impact of the WikiLeaks document dumps on Clinton’s candidacy was marginal at best.

    The contents of the Democratic National Committee e-mails were embarrassing to Podesta and then-DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who wound up losing her job after proof of DNC collusion with Clinton against Bernie Sanders was produced. But there was almost nothing in those documents that related directly to Clinton, let alone being enough to influence voters.

    Every WikiLeaks story was also almost immediately overshadowed by other, more damaging gaffes or revelations about Trump, such as his attack on a Gold Star family or the release of the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape. Nothing the Russians did matched the damage done by either of those Trump disasters.
    Instead of looking for some external events or action, just admit that Hillary was a lousy candidate. That should actually be comforting to the Democrats. With such a compromised candidate whom so many Americans just never liked, they still won the popular vote and came really close to winning the states that put Trump over the top. If they can pick a better candidate in 2020, and can make an appeal for the voters they lost in the Rust Belt, chances are pretty strong that they'll win that year. They should be more concerned about forging a message that doesn't repel independents and those voters they lost in 2016. That's their real challenge and focusing all the time on Russia, Russia, Russia won't help them achieve that goal.

    Good to know.
    Tell your friendly environmentalist activist. But they're not really interested.
    The benefits of fracking far outweigh its costs not only economically, but environmentally, a Stanford University geophysicist said Friday.

    After teaching geophysics at Stanford for 30 years Mark Zoback took the helm of Stanford's new Natural Gas Initiative three years ago, he said, because of gas's environmental benefits.

    "We did it because there were so many important and obvious environmental benefits to the utilization of natural gas," Zoback said. "So it’s somewhat ironic to be asked to argue for the notion that these benefits outweigh the environmental costs, when it’s the environmental benefits that got me into this business in the first place."

    Zoback's remarks opened the annual debate at Stanford's Silicon Valley Energy Summit, and were swiftly challenged by representatives of the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Counci
    Zoback argued that natural gas can replace coal and "dirty diesel" at significant scale throughout the world, supporting economic growth while slashing carbon emissions. (When burned, natural gas emits about half the CO2 that coal does).

    The Senate has some really dumb rules. And the minority party can use them to slow everything down to a standstill. Chuck Schumer is taking advantage of every tool that the rules provide.
    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer used an upper chamber procedure Wednesday to block a national security briefing hosted by the Senate Judiciary Committee, irritating Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley.

    The rule that Schumer had invoked, which he has been exercising the use of over the past two weeks, blocks Senate committee business from happening two hours after the Senate convenes session for the day. Schumer has consistently used the procedure as a way to delay business in Senate to make demands on Republicans on the health care bill.

    The rarely-used tactic has cut short a committee hearing on free speech, stopped a hearing on Russian meddling in the U.S. elections and blocked a mark-up to advance bipartisan anti-human trafficking legislation....

    Grassley had sent a joint letter with subcommittee judiciary chairman Lindsey Graham to the FBI Tuesday requesting all documents related to the FBI FISA surveillance requests on the Russia investigation.

    “Today, the Judiciary Committee was set to hear from senior intelligence officials about highly sensitive intelligence gathering authorities that will soon require action from Congress. It’s disturbing and reckless for the Minority Leader to block the briefing. We’ve seen too many recent reminders of how unsafe the world is today. This is no time to play politics with our national security,” he said.
    If they could use the nuclear option to get rid of a much more prominent rule concerning filibusters of Supreme Court nominees, why not use it to get rid of this stupid rule. If it's a "rarely-used tactic," no one except the angry members of the minority party will miss it.

    I had so much fun last night. I'm visiting my daughters in D.C. and we went to the Nats-Cubs game. I haven't seen a live baseball game in about 50 years since I was a kid and we'd go to the Cubs games. So I scheduled my trip to catch the game. After falling behind in the seventh inning, I thought it was pretty hopeless for the Cubs based on the way they've been playing this year. But they rallied in the ninth inning to go ahead on a triple by Jon Jay. It was so exciting and I could celebrate with all the other Cubs fans in the stadium including a cute little girl, about 10 years old, sitting with her family of Cubs fans in front of me who told her parents that John Jay had written five of the Federalist Papers. Exactly right and the Cubs' Jon Jay was a hero tonight. Go Federalists!

    What a blast! And then as walked out of the stadium and came back on the Metro and hear all the Nationals fans complaining about the Nationals' bullpen. Eh, they're still doing well. I'm just hoping that the Cubs are recovering their mojo. At least their closer, Wade Davis, another historically relevant name on the Cubs roster

              Back home.   
    It has been a whirlwind since getting back home from Texas on Monday, and back to work on Tuesday. I finally have a minute to post. The Round up was fun, productive and the food was outstanding! It was great to see Janiacs from our previous Round up, and to meet new ones. Everyone was working on their version of Dear Jane, with a few working on other Brenda projects. Below are the blocks that I finished, with some needing just a bit of hand sewing for the applique.

    24 finished blocks.
    Brenda and I.

    My Tablemates and I, all decided that we would finish our Dear Jane's this year, share at the next Round up, and start on Dear Hannah next year at Round up. Pat volunteered to email us every month to remind us to get Jane done! For me that means finishing up 15 more Triangles and 58 more blocks. I will need to spend some time each month to get them done. So watch fro my Dear Jane posts and see if I am making progress.

    My Tablemates, me, Pat, Lisa and Joanne

    Brenda also shared her stash with us- which is pretty extensive. She brought many bolts of fabric, books, pattens and kits for us to purchase at very discounted prices. Check back for my stash report on Sunday to see the damage!



    More Fabric!

    Happy Sewing!

    Food labels, could they print them a little smaller ? or maybe I'm getting old or both.

Oh my do I know a funny story about Oreo's but this is a family setting and cannot share. I believe Ken from becoming Bond had an unique tea recipe :)

              Geographic Composition #8: Circles   
    Welcome to week eight of Geographic Composition! Each week a number of my fellow photobloggers and I will submit an image based on a common theme from our scattered locations around the world. Even though the theme is the same, our own vision and view of the world when coupled with the geographic and cultural environment in which we live will shape the images we create and offer a varied interpretation on the topic of the week.

    For this week, our theme is "circles." For one photographer it was about spead monitoring cameras. For another it was about a country's staple food. Two photographers looked towards nature for inspiration. One found circles at an amusement park and another in the momentary experience of a firework blast. And for another, it was about how a special circle formed something totally different when illuminated.

    Please take a moment to view the participants' blogs and also, if you have any suggestions for future themes, please leave a comment below.

    Thanks, and Enjoy!

    Letter to the editor regarding "GRAS from the ground up: Review of the Interim Pilot Program for GRAS notification" by.

    Food Chem Toxicol. 2017 Jun 26;:

    Authors: Sewalt V, LaMarta J, Shanahan D, Gregg L, Carrillo R

    Present letter is aimed at clarifying some critical points highlighted by Hanlon et al. regarding the common knowledge element of the safety of food enzymes in support of their GRAS designation. Particularly, we outline the development of peer-reviewed, generally recognized safety evaluation methodology for microbial enzymes and its adoption by the enzyme industry, which provides the US FDA with a review framework for enzyme GRAS Notices. This approach may serve as a model to other food ingredient categories for a scientifically sound, rigorous, and transparent application of the GRAS concept.

    A 90-day oral toxicity study of glycolipids from Dacryopinax spathularia in CD(®) rats.

    Food Chem Toxicol. 2017 Jun 26;:

    Authors: Bitzer J, Henkel T, Nikiforov AI, Rihner MO, Leuschner J

    The subchronic toxicity of jelly mushroom glycolipids from Dacryopinax spathularia (herein referred to as "AM-1") was studied in Crl:CD(SD) rats. The test item was administered via the drinking water at concentrations of 1.5, 5.0 or 15 mg/mL for 90 days with an additional 4-week recovery period. No test article-related deaths, clinical observations or neurological effects were noted. Decreased drinking water consumption for mid- and high-dose groups was attributable to the reduced palatability of drinking water containing higher test article concentrations. Mean body weights of high-dose males were slightly reduced beginning study week 1 due to decreased food and drinking water intake, but were not statistically significant by week 7. No test article-related adverse effects were noted for hematological or clinical chemistry, or urinalysis parameters. Statistically significant changes in select parameters were within historical control data ranges, lacked histopathological correlates, and did not occur in a consistent pattern that would suggest biological significance. Microscopic examination did not reveal any test article-related morphological changes. The no-observed-adverse-effect level (NOAEL) was considered to be 15 mg/mL (1201 and 1423 mg AM-1/kg bw/day for male and female rats, respectively). These results support the safety assessment of jelly mushroom glycolipids for potential use in food.

              The 18 most expensive cities in the world to eat dinner out at a restaurant   

    brussels belgium restaurant

    Making a habit of eating out at restaurants is quick way to bust your budget. Cooking at home is almost always going to be cheaper

    That's especially true in major, cosmopolitan cities like Tokyo, Oslo, and Zurich, where dinner for two at a regular neighborhood restaurant — not even a fancy establishment — will run you over $60. In 15 other cities around the world it will cost at least $40. 

    That's according to a recent report by Deutsche Bank, which analyzes the cost of living and compares prices among the largest cities around the world. 

    The report sources prices from Expatistan, a site that tracks cost-of-living expenses in over 200 countries, for a "basic dinner at a neighborhood pub for two" in nearly 50 cities. 

    Here are the 18 most expensive cities in the world for eating dinner out at a restaurant. 

    All prices are in US dollars.

              Nowruz: Persian New Year's Table Celebrates Spring Deliciously   
    A version of this story first ran in March 2014. The first day of spring is cause for a celebration, especially after the winter many of us have been having. But it's hard to top the 13-day festivities of the Persian New Year, Nowruz. Nowruz, or "new day" in Persian, is an ancient festival that marks the beginning of spring and celebrates the rebirth of nature. And naturally, it has a lot to do with fresh, green foods just beginning to poke out of the ground that remind us winter is not, in fact, eternal. Nowruz begins at the stroke of the vernal equinox, when the sun crosses the equator. This year it came early in the morning of March 20. When the equinox comes, millions of families of Iranian descent gather around a ceremonial table known as the haftseen . (Think colorful, elaborate Day Of The Dead -type altars meet a mashup of Easter and Passover traditions.) Young and old hold hands and count down to the New Year together and cheer Eide Shoma Mobarak, or Happy New Year! The
              How To Make A Chinese New Year-Worthy Potsticker   
    Even though he estimates he's made hundreds of thousands of them, Scott Drewno says pork potstickers never get old. In fact, they are the food the executive chef of The Source by Wolfgang Puck, a fine dining Asian fusion restaurant in Washington, D.C., says he would take to a desert island. "They're everything you want in a dish — salty, savory, filling," says Drewno, as he lovingly holds up one of three bowls of ground pork he planned to season and stuff into dumplings before our eyes. The humble dumpling was traditionally prepared by families in northern China, sitting around tables late into the night before the start of the Chinese New Year. And while the Year of the Snake began last weekend, Chinese new year's celebrations traditionally last two weeks. So there's still time if you want to mark the occasion by trying your hand at dumplings this weekend. Drewno recently led a willing group of patrons through the sticky and twisty ways of folding dumplings at a class in honor of the
              Whole Foods Founder John Mackey On Fascism and 'Conscious Capitalism'   
    UPDATE at 12:35 p.m., ET, Jan. 17: Many of you wrote in to tell us you were taken aback by Whole Foods top executive John Mackey characterizing the health law as fascism in an NPR interview, and apparently, he's feeling a little sheepish. About three minutes into his otherwise amiable chat with CBS This Morning hosts on on Thursday, Mackey walked back his comments in response to a direct question from Norah O'Donnell: "Well, I think that was a bad choice of words on my part ... that word has an association with of course dictatorships in the 20th century like Germany and Spain, and Italy. What I know is that we no longer have free enterprise capitalism in health care, it's not a system any longer where people are able to innovate, it's not based on voluntary exchange. The government is directing it. So we need a new word for it. I don't know what they right word is," Mackey says. Part 1 of his interview with Morning Edition's Steve Inskeep is linked above, and you can hear him discuss
              Comfort And Joy: Making The 'Morning Edition' Julia Child Thanksgiving   
    Like many of us who consider ourselves food adventurers most of the year, when it comes to Thanksgiving, we just want the turkey and mashed potatoes we grew up with. Well, OK, maybe just a teensy bit better than what we grew up with, but along the same lines. For inspiration, the Morning Edition Thanksgiving crew turned to the cookbooks written by the first woman who showed Americans that comfort food could be fresh, special and loaded with real butter — Julia Child. She would have turned 100 years old this year, but it was on her very first show, The French Chef , that she proved there is nothing to fear in the kitchen. And when you're staring down a giant turkey, let's face it, it can be a little scary. Hearing her cheery voice intone, "In fact, it's very easy to roast a turkey!" might give you just the boost of confidence you need. "Julia was never intimidated, and I think her success was based upon making people comfortable with cooking because they were comfortable with her,"
              Food Waste Is Overwhelming. Here Are Five Things People Are Doing About It   
    The food world is buzzing today about the latest news on just how often we waste perfectly good food. And we admit, the statistics are pretty depressing. About 40 percent of food in the United States today goes uneaten. The average American consumer wastes 10 times as much food as someone in Southeast Asia — up 50 percent from Americans in the 1970s. Yet, 1 in 6 Americans doesn't have enough to eat, says the U.S. Department of Agriculture. And food waste costs us about $165 billion a year and sucks up 25 percent of our freshwater supply. That's all according to the report with the not-so-subtle title, "Wasted: How America Is Losing Up to 40 Percent of Its Food from Farm to Fork to Landfill," just released by the Natural Resources Defense Council. As we've reported, there are all kinds of offenders in this game, from restaurants to regular consumers and our refrigerators . But we thought we'd bring you some info on what some folks are doing to combat the waste and reroute the food where
              Discarded Food Cans Turn Into Canvas For British Street Artist   
    Those eyes grab you first. Only after a couple of beats do you realize you're looking at the painted bottom of a flattened metal can left on the street, and not some mysterious fairy. These can art people come from the imagination of a British artist known as My Dog Sighs , who has left a piece of art on the street for someone to find every Friday for the last 10 years. Above, check out a small sampling of some of his work. Below, he talks with The Salt about where he gets those cans and his funny name. Why did you start painting faces on cans, as opposed to canvas or wood? I make art to go on the street as part of my Free Art Friday project. I cannot afford to put canvas out, so I was always looking for free materials. I do not want to be seen as leaving litter, so I began using litter that was already there. I collected it, painted it, and put it back more beautiful. One day, I found a can on the floor, and it just worked with a sketch I had been developing. (Click on the video A Can

              Hot & Cheesy Shrimp Dip   

    Hot & Cheesy Shrimp Dip Served in Artisan Bread Bowl

    1 large or 2 small round(s) of artisan bread (as pictured), cut out top and center and set aside
    8 ounces cream cheese, softened
    1/2 cup Hot Wing Sauce
    1/2 cup Italian mix shredded cheese (mozzarella, provolone, Parmesan and Romano cheeses)
    1/4 cup ranch dressing
    1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt or sour cream
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 scant teaspoon chili powder
    10 drops Louisiana hot sauce or 1/2 teaspoon Chipotle in Adobo sauce
    1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
    1 24-ounce bag medium-size frozen cooked shrimp
    1/3 cup Italian mix shredded cheese for garnish, if desired
    1/4 cup green onions with tops, chopped for garnish, if desired
    Additional soft bread for serving
    or Tostito "Scoop" Chips

    Thaw and rinse shrimp. Allow shrimp to drain in a colander; remove shells and snip off tails. Spread shrimp onto layered paper towels (about 3 or 4 thicknesses). Roll shrimp up in the paper towels (as for a jelly roll) and gently press out excess moisture; repeat if necessary. Place shrimp on a cutting board (a food processor is not recommended) and chop to desired size (I like to leave the shrimp big enough that it's identifiable). Set shrimp aside.

    Place cream cheese in large microwave-safe bowl; stir until smooth. Mix Hot Wing sauce, shredded cheese mix, ranch dressing, yogurt, garlic powder, chili powder, Louisiana hot sauce, and salt with cream cheese; stir to blend. Microwave on High for 2 minutes; stir again. Cover and microwave for another 1 minute. Dip will be bubbling when it's ready to serve.

    Pour Hot & Cheesy Shrimp Dip into hollowed out bread bowl. Top with additional shredded cheese and green onions for garnish (green onions on top of this dish are mainly for color). Serve from the bread bowl with large soft bread pieces, or serve dip from a heat-proof bowl with Tostito "Scoop" Chips or fresh vegetables (as shown). Yield: 4 cups dip

    Note: Canned or diced cooked chicken or shredded beef
    can be used in place of the shrimp.

              Salute! Beer & Sauerbraten   

    “We’ll be back in 2 hours - just in time for that sauerbraten dinner you promised us!” Dad said as his long legs carried him swiftly across the front yard toward his pick-up truck. His friend Pat was waiting in the truck leisurely puffing on his pipe. They were going on an afternoon adventure to scope out a piece of “ground” as they did so often when Dad was preparing to build another house.

    “That’s perfect timing! While you’re gone, Mom and I are going to do some prep work for Cheryl’s baby shower, and bottle a batch of Christmas beer,” I shouted to Dad from my back porch as he closed the truck door behind him and waved a hasty goodbye.

    When I went back into the house I could see that Mom had finished washing the old brown 1-quart beer bottles. We arranged the empties on the floor in a half-circle in front of the weathered 10-gallon crock, which Pat and Dad had hoisted onto a chair for us so it would be easier to siphon every crystal clear drop from the crock into the bottles.

    “You know, for two people who don’t drink beer, we certainly spend a lot of time bottling it!” Mom smiled. She was ribbing me and I knew that she also enjoyed the challenge of making home brew, because much like wine, the finished product turned out different every year.

    “It’s worth all the fuss to see my beer-loving friends’ faces light up at Christmas when I hand them a bottle of pure golden, bubbly brew, made right here in my own dining room!” I replied peering down into the crock. We listened for the beer’s familiar “hiss, sizzle, gurgle,” that we had heard earlier in the week, it was quiet and still, a temporary flatness, which indicated it was ready to bottle.

    We each grabbed a siphoning tube and pulled up a chair. We dipped one end of the tube into the crock, sucked on the other end of the tube to start the brew flowing through the tube and began siphoning fresh green beer into our 72 bottles.

    We no sooner got started when the phone rang. I removed my siphon hose from the crock and laid it aside to answer the phone. Throughout the afternoon we had numerous calls, which meant we had to start a new tap with each interruption.

    The phone rang again just as we were filling the last few bottles. “Eello! Oh hi, Cheryl. I’m so glat you called. Ows our expectant Mommy do’in?” I said into the phone.

    Mom tapped me on the shoulder and whispered, “remind her that we need a final guest lissht.”

    “Do ya think we should start cap’in some of these baattles?” Mom asked, pulling the bottle capper to the edge of the dining room table and through several pools of spilled beer, which had dribbled down the table leg and had splashed onto the floor.

    “That’s a gooot idea, Mom, the crock is emtee.”

    I glanced out the dining room window, “Oh my gaawsh! Pad and Dat are comm’n up the driveway! Is it dinnertime all ratty?”

    Mom started tittering and pointed an inebriated finger at me, “I think yur tiptssy!”

    We looked at each other with a wavering glance, and realized that we were both feeling the effects of the beer. Suddenly everything was funny! We couldn’t stop giggling, our faces quickly covered with tears of laughter.

    Much to Dad and Pat’s surprise, they found Mom and me surrounded by a sea of beer bottles, reeking of brewski and three sheets to the wind.

    “Hey, Pat, get a load of these two teetotalers - they’ve got a snoot full!” Dad cried out above the clamor, and then both men burst into laughter.

    Dad and Pat were good sports about our unintentional toot. With the help of our slurred instructions, the men boiled some red potatoes and put the finishing touches on the sauerbraten, and all was well with the world.

    Oktoberfest Sauerbraten

    1 large arm cut chuck roast

    2 medium onions, sliced

    1 lemon, sliced

    1 ½ cups red wine vinegar

    2 ½ cup water

    12 whole cloves

    6 bay leaves

    12 whole black peppercorns

    1 tablespoon salt

    1 tablespoon granulated sugar

    ¼ teaspoon ground ginger

    2-4 tablespoons cooking oil

    1 pint sour cream

    Place roast in a large glass or plastic marinating container. Prepare marinade in a large bowl (a mixing bowl with a pour spout works good) by combining onions, lemon, vinegar, water, cloves, bay leaves, peppercorns, salt, sugar and ginger; stir well. Pour marinade over roast and cover. Marinate roast in refrigerator for 3-4 days, turning at least twice daily.

    Set oven at 300°. Remove roast from marinade, reserving all remaining marinade except for the lemons, which should be discarded. Using paper towels, dry the roast thoroughly and set aside.

    Pour cooking oil into a large heated skillet and brown roast on both sides. Place roast in a large baking pan or roaster, that’s been treated with cooking spray, pour marinade over roast; cover.

    Bake for 3 hours, or until tender. Move roast to a serving platter, and keep it warm in the oven while sauce is being prepared. Remove and discard bay leaves, cloves and peppercorns from pan juices. Pour juice into a saucepan, bring it to a boil, and remove from the heat; stir in sour cream. Boiled red potatoes and slow-cooked green beans or steamed green cabbage make an excellent accompaniment for sauerbraten. Yield: 6 to 8 servings

    Note: I'd suggest making Sauerbraten in the crock pot and serving it simply with egg noodles and steamed carrots or green beans when making it in August to celebrate National Beer Day. It's traditionally an October-fest meal, or a German Pot Roast made more during the cooler months. But who can resist washing down delicious savory sauerbraten with a cold, frosty beer? Certainly NOT Mom and me!

              Couscous Chickpea (or Black Bean) Salad   

    1 1/2 cups couscous, cooked
    2 cans
    chickpeas or black beans, rinsed and drained (using one of each creates added color, texture and flavor)

    to 1/2 cup parsley or cilantro, chopped

    green onions or 1/2 cup purple onion, finely diced

    1 cup
    grape tomatoes, cut into halves
    1/2 cup celery, diced
    1/4 cup seedless Greek or pimento stuffed green olives, chopped (optional)
    2 cloves garlic, finely minced
    1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
    2 tablespoon
    olive oil

    Salt & pepper to taste

    Prepare the couscous; fluff after it has set for 5 minutes and then allow it to cool completely. Place the cooled couscous in a medium bowl; add chickpeas, parsley, onions, grape tomatoes, celery and olives; toss thoroughly. Combine garlic, lemon juice and olive oil; drizzle over salad and toss thoroughly. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

    This can be eaten immediately or it will keep in the refrigerator for several days. Yield: 6 servings

    Note: Chicken, ham or pork can be added to transform this side salad into a main dish salad, in which case it will yield 4 servings.

    2 to 3 tablespoons cooking oil
    2 large Spanish or white onions, sliced and divided
    3 cups mushrooms, cleaned and thick sliced
    2 cups baby carrots, whole
    1 pound green beans, cleaned, whole
    1-10 or 12 ounce jar beef gravy
    1 mushroom gravy packet, dry
    Mashed potatoes, rice or spaghetti (optional)

    Trim visible fat from steak. Cut steak into 8 serving pieces. Sear meat on both sides in hot oil using a large skillet. Discard excess fat and save the brown drippings in the bottom of pan; set aside.

    Combine prepared beef gravy and dry mushroom gravy packet in a medium bowl. Put half the onions in the bottom of crock pot; add mushrooms. Place seared steak pieces and brown pan drippings over mushrooms; pour half the gravy mixture over steak. Add remaining onions and green beans. End by pouring last half of gravy mixture over green beans.

    Cover; cook on low heat for 8-9 hours or 4-5 hours on high heat. Serve over hot mashed potatoes, rice, egg noodles or spaghetti, if desired. Yield: 8 servings

              Susan's Sensational Fudge Pie   

    A while back I ran across an old “food for thought” verse that was circulating the internet back in 2001. It seemed apropos at the time so I used it in my Carlsbad Current-Argus cooking column. In reviewing this delightful verse, yet again, I thought its message was well-worth repeating in 2011. I guess there are some things that never change, as well they shouldn't. Happy New Year!

    I Want What She's Having

    I have a new delightful friend; I am most in awe of her. When we first met I was impressed, by her bizarre behavior.

    That day I had a date with friends, we met to have some lunch. Mae had come along with them, all in all a pleasant bunch.

    When the menus were presented, we ordered salads, sandwiches, and soups. Except for Mae who circumvented, and said, ice cream please, two scoops.

    I was not sure my ears heard right, and the others were aghast. Along with heated apple pie, Mae added, completely unabashed.

    I could not take my eyes off Mae, as her pie a-la-mode went down. The other ladies showed dismay; they ate their lunches silently, and frowned.

    Well, the next time I went out to eat, I called and invited Mae. My lunch contained white tuna meat; she ordered a parfait.

    How come you order rich desserts, when I feel I must be sensible? She laughed and said, with wanton mirth, I taste all that's possible.

    This year I realized how old I was, she grinned, I've not been this old before. So, before I die, I've got to try those things for years I had ignored.

    I've not smelled all the flowers yet; there are too many books I have not read. There's more fudge sundaes to wolf down, and kites to be flown overhead.

    I want to wade again in water, and feel ocean spray upon my face. Sit in a country church once more and thank God for His grace.

    I want peanut butter every day, spread on my morning toast. I want un-timed long-distance calls; to the folks I love the most.

    I've not cried at all the movies yet, nor walked in the morning rain. I need to feel wind in my hair; I want to fall in love again.

    So, if I choose to have dessert, instead of having dinner. Then should I die before nightfall, I'd say I died a winner.

    Because I missed out on nothing, I filled my heart's desire. I had that final chocolate mousse, before my life expired.

    With that, I called the waitress over, I've changed my mind, and it seems, I said, I want what she is having, only add some more whipped-cream!

    This year I’m loosening up the reins to adopt Mae’s light-hearted philosophy. Instead of narrowing my path with restrictions, rules and resolutions, I’m going to take pleasure in new found freedom. I’ll broaden my life and enrich it with delectable foods, enjoyed with friends and family because entertaining and cooking keeps my heart light, kindles my creativity and enhances my well being. Happy cooking adventures throughout the New Year!

    Susan's Sensational Fudge Pie is nothing less than mm, mm, delicious. It’s fudge and nuts inside a not-so-sweet crust, which makes for an intriguing dessert that results in an "I'll have more" chocolate pie. Susan Garrison of Mesa, Arizona used to make this pie for me "by request" as my birthday dessert.

    Susan's Sensational Fudge Pie
    ¼ cup butter, softened
    ¾ cup brown sugar, packed
    3 eggs
    12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    ¼ cup all-purpose flour
    1 cup walnuts or pecans, coarsely chopped
    2 teaspoons instant coffee
    1 9-inch pie shell

    Preheat oven to 375˚. Cream butter with brown sugar; add eggs, one at a time, and beat well. Melt chocolate chips over hot (not boiling) water; add to creamed mixture. Stir in vanilla, flour, nuts and coffee. Pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake for 25 minutes. Decorate with candy hearts, whipped cream, maraschino cherries, fresh fruit or flowers.

    Yield: 6-8 servings


              Holiday Cookie Recipe Repertoire - Day #23   

    Last weekend I read that Americans love their holiday cookies and they look forward to cookies during the season more than any other treat. So I've put together a repertoire of cookie and cookie bar recipes. Most are old recipes made for us by our moms and grandmothers, cookies that have tasted heavenly to us since childhood.

    I've also added a couple of runner-up recipes from the recent Favorite Holiday Recipe Contest. After personally stirring-up a batch of these sweet, tender morsels, they've officially been added to the holiday cookie list at the Briggs house as new traditions. Enjoy!

              Pear Shrimp Salad Day #21   

    Pear Shrimp Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing is an unlikely combination of foods – blue cheese dressing, shrimp and pears that create a surprisingly unforgettable and festive taste sensation. Accompanied with a glass of sparkling white wine, it's a salad you're going to be making over and over again because it's perfect for a variety of occasions.

    Pear Shrimp Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing
    1 head Butter lettuce, washed and torn into bite-size pieces
    1-2 Bartlett or "Red" pears, cored, pared and cut julienne style
    1 cup salad shrimp, rinsed and drained
    Chunky blue cheese salad dressing (Marie’s, Litehouse or Maytag are good choices)
    1/2 cup Hazelnuts, lightly toasted
    16-20 grape tomatoes
    Freshly ground pepper

    Divide lettuce onto four serving plates; layer pears onto lettuce; add ¼ cup shrimp to each salad and drizzle each salad with desired amounts of blue cheese dressing. Divide hazelnuts and grape tomatoes; arrange on salads. End with freshly ground pepper to taste. Yield: 4 servings

    Note: Variations to this salad would be to omit the shrimp (as shown in picture), use spinach in place of butter lettuce, replace the hazel nuts with a different nut such as toasted walnuts and/or use apples in place of pears. Remake it anyway you like it - there are no rules.

              Personalized Cutting Board Laser Engraved 8x14 Wood Cutting Board CB814 by mrcwoodproducts   

    36.95 USD

    This Personalized Cutting Board measures 14" wide by 8" Tall. Each sign is custom engraved with the name of the family you provide us. It will be finished with food safe cutting board oil for excellent protection. We do recommend that you reapply the oil as needed to protect the wood for years to come. It is engraved on one side only which is meant for display, while the other side is intended for cutting.

    Our cutting boards are made from start to finish in our shop in Indiana. We select each board for its color, characteristics, and beauty to ensure that you have the highest quality cutting board possible. After the wood is selected, we cut to length and width, cut out the handle, round all the edges, then sand until perfectly smooth. Once the design has been engraved, we hand rub the finish to seal the wood and bring out its natural beauty.

    Walnut can vary in color in both the wood and engraving. Your cutting board and/or the engraving may be lighter or darker than the example picture, though it will always be beautiful. We do not stain the boards in any way to achieve the dark walnut color. That is the natural color of walnut.

              Minnesota Soybean Processors to Pursue ND Soybean Processing Plant at Spiritwood   
    By ND Governor's Office
    Gov. Doug Burgum and leaders of Minnesota Soybean Processors (MnSP) and its subsidiary North Dakota Soybean Processors (NDSP) announced today that MnSP is taking steps toward construction of a $240 million soybean processing plant – the first of its kind in North Dakota – at Spiritwood, N.D. 

    The plant would be an integrated soybean crush facility and refinery, crushing 125,000 bushels of soybeans per day. It would produce soybean meal, refined, bleached and deodorized soybean oil and biodiesel. 

    MnSP, a membership cooperative that owns and operates a soybean crush facility and biodiesel operation in Brewster, Minn., has selected a site on 150 acres near Spiritwood. The co-op would move forward with construction following further due diligence, necessary approvals and a successful engineering study.

    By selecting the Spiritwood site, MnSP is able to conduct a preliminary front-end engineering and design study, which will be used to determine feasibility of construction. MnSP is working with the North Dakota Agricultural Products Utilization Commission to complete the construction feasibility study.

    “The potential for this type of value-added project is great news for our farmers and the entire state of North Dakota,” Burgum said. “The NDSP plant will create value in the local community and beyond by creating 55 to 60 full-time jobs, supporting local service companies, vendors and suppliers and supporting the soybean price paid to local farmers.”

    Gov. Burgum, MnSP Board President Bruce Hill and MnSP General Manager Scott Austin made the announcement during the annual Northern Soybean Expo and Trade Show in Fargo, joined by North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring. “Our preliminary market analysis shows there are markets this facility would serve that would complement our current efforts at the Brewster facility to reach both global and domestic markets for meal and oil,” Austin said. “We also believe that the biodiesel from this plant would serve both domestic and international markets.”

    The NDSP plant would annually produce 900,000 tons of soybean meal, which is usually used as livestock feed for poultry and swine but can also be used for cattle, and 490 million pounds of oil. Half of the oil will be used to produce biodiesel, while the other half will be food-grade soybean oil.

    The plant would utilize steam from the nearby Spiritwood Station, a coal-fired power plant operated by Great River Energy.

    MnSP has been working with the Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corp. and meeting with the appropriate state agencies, including the Department of Commerce, Office of State Tax Commissioner and Bank of North Dakota.
