Exit strategies

If you had only a day to evacuate your home that might not be there when you could come back, what would you take with you? Assume you would have a good sized car, even a van or truck. Taking portable pets is a given, of course. What would you pack out if you had only a few hours? What if you had an... Sign in to see full entry.

Earliest memories

CCT wrote recently about early memories. We all have them, though they are not all consciously accessible. I remember one when I was around 2, and we visited my sister's kindergarten to see some ducklings swimming in a bathtub. There was another, later, when I was 3, I think, when we had driven out...

spin-off from today's Ciel Show post

The Amazing Race... Do you watch, or have you watched it? Here's why I do: As reality games go, it's about more than cunning, head-games, or physical attractiveness. It requires both physical and mental agility, language skills, and courage, a willingness to abandon comfort zones. Some players are... Sign in to see full entry.

Pounds down...

This keto-adapted diet is fine for flavor and satisfaction on many levels but it lacks in desserts and snackin' goodies. Pork rinds are excellent, and celery with peanut butter are acceptible as long as the peanut butter doesn't have sugar. So--looking for your best low-carb/no-carb ideas! Sign in to see full entry.

Going for laughs

Of all the comedians of the Golden Age--that's before and just into the Talkies Age--who are your favorites? There is a movie I watched with my parents years and years ago, called THE GOLDEN AGE OF COMEDY that focused on each of the true greats. This was before television, and somewhere between...

What's that you're eating...?

We recently went shopping at the Asia Pacific Market here in the Springs, and as usual, I came home with some things not generally found in the local grocery store. I got a couple of duck eggs, and a packet of 8 quail eggs. I've had duck eggs before, just wanted to remind myself how they compare... Sign in to see full entry.

Cooking terms: How much did you like it?

Still watching this Australian cooking show. It's also, of course, a tasting show, and hearing the same terms repeatedly: cooked to perfection dances on the tongue ticks all the boxes It's a knock-out dish! die for! Nailed it! They have such a limited vocabulary for praising the food, it... Sign in to see full entry.

Still cooking...

Or at least, watching others cook. The first challenge in this episode was to make a quick, warming winter meal. The most successful was a spicy, prawn wonton soup. I'd have made a winter squash soup with corn, sweet potato, onion, and a dash of Hawaiian teriyaki sauce. A scoop of brown rice,... Sign in to see full entry.

Do you watch cooking shows?

I have been watching a cooking contest show from Australia. What annoys me about it is how much they repeat scenes and comments, as if viewers are unable to remember more than a few moments. It's filler, and tedious. I understand it's an attempt to raise tension, but it is just too obvious. The... Sign in to see full entry.

A new not-new prompt

New here, but I posted something like this a few days ago on Facebook and got some really interesting responses, even a conversation or two. Acknowledging that the US is deeply dysfunctional in very many ways, I wonder what do you say are the biggest and worst of our dysfunctions? I think the one of... Sign in to see full entry.
