I appreciate the fact that The New York Times will publish a perfectly good obit even though its author has long since died himself.
It’s Michael Jordan’s birthday. Is that why I have the day off today?
There was a guest at Mass this morning. The priest felt compelled to insist that it wasn’t the Holy Spirit, but was in fact just a bird.
February photoblogging challenge, getting an early start on Day 17: COOL. As in one of the coolest finds at our visit 2 years ago in Cooperstown: a nice tribute to Negro League legend Buck O’Neil. If only the Hall had done right by him and inducted him while he was still alive.
My sister loves YouTube. Having cut the cable cord a few years ago, she turns to it as her primary source of video entertainment (though we watched PBS on her digital antenna TV most of the time during my recent visit). So, she sends me a lot of YouTube links, most of which I view when I’m not saddled with work or in the midst of family time. Except for cute animal clips and reviews of Chicago places I’ve not yet visited, the YouTube links are largely cooking videos.
With my husband getting acclimated in a new job in recent weeks, I’m trying to take up more of the dinner responsibilities at home. So I decided to catalog some of the better cooking videos I’ve received, which I plan to try at some point. Even the Spam mayonnaise rice.
