The vinaterta project

My daughter and I are making vinaterta using your recipe at http://etherwork.net/recipes/vineterte.html This is the first time we have done it, because in past years my mother has done it. This year, we are trying to get her to do less, so we convinced her we needed to learn. I am not a baker, so I ...

Today I opened a cupboard and saw the wooden chopping board that had been missing for several months. I am baffled by it's sudden appearance, exactly where it was supposed to be, especially as I had twice emptied the cupboard in an attempt to find it. hmm, weird. I suspect "The Borrowers."...

Re: The day after

One person on our ballot was representing the "radical marijuana" party. I wonder if he got more than one vote. And does someone like that vote for himself? There was nobody from the "Canadian Action Party" though. http://www.thecanadapage.org/Parties.htm Too bad there was no on...

Re: Canadian Federal Election

Here in Canada we are facing a federal election on Oct 14. The main rivals are the incumbent Conservatives who have governed for the past few years with a minority, but no formal alliance with any of the other parties. The Conservatives are led by a very controlling right wing leader. The Liberals ...
