So I did. Huh. What a memory lapse. It's good to know that I still have the same feeling about painting. We didn't have time to get to Holst's Jupiter before we finished all the painting or I would have put that one down too.

Too bad my memory isn't.

Music By Which To Paint

We renovated our kitchen two years ago and because it looked so pretty, we want to keep it looking pretty. I daresay that in a few years, we won't care so much about the little dings in the wall. At any rate, I had to repaint one of the walls because it had several marks on it. MrBrown filled all th...

Well, that was fun! and useful!!! I put in my favourite authors which led to other authors I like which made me think that some of hte authors listed were probably ones I should check out. Oddly, when I clicked on Amy Tan, the closest author to her was Dr. Seuss. hmmmm Is there something I'm missing...

I find the morning show to be as you describe but the show from 3 pm-9 pm (our time--6-12 your time) is much better. It still has the droning from the athletes ("I'm just happy to be at the Olympics!") but much more competition. We've seen most of the Canadian baseball games in their entir...

I asked a former world-ranked judge of another sport what he thought. He said that sometimes judges see things that aren't seen by other judges which is why in his sport, karate, there are 5 judges and the highest and lowest scores are dropped. He told me of one instance where he gave a very low sco...

I want to come to your house for lunch!! The sauces that I've had at noodle houses have always been quite thin and lots of it so it was more like noodle soup--sort of like the (horrible) ready-made ramen noodle bowls that are reconstituted with a boiling water. Was your sauce thin, and lots of it? o...

Olympics

I've been watching much of the Olympics. This morning's wonderful game of baseball where Cuba beat Canada by one point was great. I felt a little sad that Canada didn't win the game but it was such a good ball game. It was a much better ball game than the major league game I saw in San Francisco las...

I just came home from a holiday in Northern California and since I try to buy local produce, I thought this was an excellent place to buy California strawberries. I was surprised to see that they were the same price as here in BC AND about the same quality. Perhaps Californians LIKE wooden strawberr...

On the holiday Monday, I was lazing (sleeping) in front of the TV and I woke up three quarters of the way through Paula Deen's show--she woke me up with her horrible giggle. She was doing a show on using the deep fryer--like she NEEDS to add more fat into her diet. She made hush puppies that didn't ...

Very interesting talk. The information about the termites is fascinating. I wonder if it works with ants in the strawberries? I didn't understand everything, given that I'm not a mycellologist? mycellinian? biologist, but it seems to me that if he's right, the planet CAN be saved. It's never occurre...

Saturday Lunch

I found half a Napa cabbage in the bottom of the vegetable bin and thought of coleslaw. I searched my go-to site only to find no recipes for coleslaw. I read several on the internet but most of them use a lot of mayonnaise. So, I made up my own! I slicedthe cabbage thinly, added 2 grated carrots, 2 ...

I don't think I've read anything by Dennis Lehane. (I'll head straight to the library to put one of his books on hold.) Shutter Island is excellent. He also wrote Mystic River which was made into a very good movie with Sean Penn and Tim Robbins. I like the whole series of books with Patrick and Ang...

I read some of the comments about the deep fried butter recipe. My favourite was the suggestion to unleash Anthony Bourdain on her. I have to say that I LIKE butter but the idea of deep frying it horrifies me. I also like macaroni and cheese with bacon but I like to COOK the bacon before I eat it. P...
