Even at Christmas, the Best Laid Schemes o’ Mice an’ Men...

It all began with my deeply ingrained fondness for National Geographic. Aside from providing generations of boys, including me, with endlessly fascinating glimpses of tropical lands, it also provided us with endlessly tantalizing glimpses of the female anatomy, with parental consent even, before we...

Naut’s Black Bean Salad

Someone gave me this recipe some years ago, though I can’t remember who. It wasn’t my own invention, but I have made it often enough, so that I have only a slightly bad conscience when I call it "Naut’s". I like salads, because they’re quick and often easy. This one is done in ten minutes, but you... Sign in to see full entry.

The Dancing Hawk...

All of us who feed birds know that we also feed squirrels. Some of us also feed raptors! Somewhat reluctantly, it must be said, but there doesn’t seem to be an alternative. And, finding some virtue in that ‘vice’, we can tell ourselves that we are contributing to the improvement of our various ‘pet’... Sign in to see full entry.

Naut's Putanesca Pasta

Having been inspired by strat to rummage around in my own collection of recipes, a collection not in the best of shape as these things go, I came up with this, one of my favorite pasta dishes. I got it from a friend of mine several years ago, and have made it often. If you have some Italian, you... Sign in to see full entry.

Truck vs Blogger...IX, The Duck...

As I have explained at great length before, a length possibly too great for some, I am the fortunate recipient of the Delectable Sheri’s (DS’s) ministrations, or at least my thumb is. These ministrations are rather complicated, and to describe them in detail would be boring, pointless and irrelevant... Sign in to see full entry.

A Blogger in the (Quasi) Confessional...

I’ve been busy, and haven’t been posting much. Hence, Wiley and his horde of robots have been after me, and even Blanche has allowed herself to be pressed into that gang, although there’s nothing robotic about our Blanche. And, being in a rush, but having to produce something, I thought I might say... Sign in to see full entry.

Do You Bloggers Know What You're Doing When You Vote?

Wiley sent one of his dreaded robotic minions after me again, so, knowing what’s good for me, I hasten to comply and post something. As luck would have it, there’s a timely topic at hand! After the convulsions south of the border (that’s south of our Canadian border), it’s our turn to go to the... Sign in to see full entry.

Naut's Mango & Avocado Salad

Yesterday my DFC (that’s Displaced Fellow Canadian) ginnieb did a post on avocados, and a lot of people, including myself, popped in and said something to the effect of ‘yeah, avocados!' And it reminded me forcefully that I hadn’t had any avocados in about a week, and I decided to rectify that... Sign in to see full entry.

Another Visit with Our Fine Feathered Friends...

Summer has long since drawn to a close, it’s almost Halloween, and many of our regular birds have left, including most of the blue jays. But several have stayed behind, and they may be with us all winter, as they have in the past. I tend to think they’re the smarter ones, knowing that there’s always... Sign in to see full entry.
