    I have been told the aversion is genetic. I have a friend who has the same aversion, but my sister likes it. Go figure. For some unknown reason, there is a patch of cilantro growing along one of my favorite bike paths, and in the late summer I can smell it when I ride by. [...]

    All wet eagles, at least they have down coats.
    Cilantro tastes fine to me, but I do understand some folks don’t tolerate it at all. But I never thought of it as coriander, and love the smell of that.

    Good Morning All, Looks cloudy around here. Ugh…terrible news about child abuse cases in Ariz….reports (lots) that were closed and never investigated. Guess CPS workers are not what they used to be, said the old woman.

    We have his email address because he was part of the original Over Easy volunteer crew. I sent him an email just now and asked him if he’d pop in and say hello. I do see him on Facebook occasionally.

    good to see you, and there really has to be some public controls that don’t just carry out corporate dominance, for the internet to keep its value to us. Not yet seeing what would make it stay our present place to visit with the world.

    We will happily accept all leftover cilantro here, LOL. I can eat a meal of it. Yup. But I admit, it does have a very unique taste.

    Eaglet news? Yesterday they were spending time, seemingly alone in the nest, although I am sure a parent was on the branch, watching. It sure is beautiful there, in Decorah.

    Have not seen Kris in a minute (KY translation: in a while). We miss him.

    Good morning JC and Ruth! Looked at the eaglets a bit ago and the camera is all splashed with rain. Mombrella was on the nest looking bedraggled. Sorry, Ruth, but one of the things I cannot bear to smell or taste is cilantro (coriander). I can detect a fingernail-sized bit in a vat of soup, [...]

    Good morning! Very interesting links to dig into today, thank you so much, Ruth. I will have to read more on the bubble technology. Back in 1893, someone told me that Bell Labs was working on this technology, and I am wondering if what they were working on ( beginning in 1966 , turns out) is similar [...]

    Hard to tell what exactly was meant, indeed, especially since basically any actual war would get huge backlash from anyone but McAyn. Yeh, anything from Carousel makes me cringe.

    The “people” may have “lost” a trillion dollars but others “made” a trillion dollars. Conservatives/libertarians will crow that is just the good old Merican entrepreneurial spirit in action.

    Well we know the feeling. Last year we had to replant a few things after a heavy frost hit after Mother’s Day. It was down to 28 earlier, here.

    What I thought Biden meant is that ‘we will protect you, we will give you money for your junta, we will make sure Russia gets messed up if they don’t do what we say’. (‘Give back’ Crimea, remove all troops from ‘pre-crisis’ borders, order the ‘terrorist pro-Russians’ to disarm, and tra la la. I was [...]

    Hi, didja get to visit those growing eaglets? Kris hasn’t been showing up lately, hope he will soon.
