    but yall gotta love this one, from a FL paper: All adults should have the right to marry and divorce as they see fit. That’s why, in another set of circumstances, I wouldn’t bring up Attorney General Pam Bondi’s two marriages and divorces – and her current relationship with a Tampa ophthalmologist, this time sealed, [...]

    good morning, mm. trying to get motivated to do some yard work before it gets too warm, so pretty much just driving by while the vitamins and tea kick in. hope all is well with you and yours, babe.

    nice to see the EU surpass its target. we should try something like that.

  • what’s always important to remember about this period is the Classical Revival that was sweeping Europe at the time. art and architecture, poetry and prose, politics and social forms… a significant segment of the upper classes were really into Classical ideas from ancient rome and greece, and the revolutionaries adopted much of that, but tempered [...]

    i have a couple of silk rebozos. one is from china, the other from canada. i’m sure they’re called different names in those places. but wraps are wonderful, esp colorful ones. i wish that i had more occasions to wear them.

    i’m glad you enjoyed it. i’ve gotta pass, however. i just looked up the definition of suet, never having eaten it. it doesn’t sound like it’s for me. ymmv.

  • Moroni worship is right up there on my list of Most Creepy Religions. the more i learn about it, the more i think there should be a concerted effort to expose it for what it really is. although this is the first time i’ve heard about human sacrifice in that cult, i would not at [...]

  • the vase based on human organs is a little bit creepy. i love this stuff, but i do remember there were some really harsh aspects to their culture. not that ours is any less brutal, but i’m glad that we’ve at least officially said no to human sacrifice religions.

    RIP Mr. O’Toole. Thank you for your fine performances. I enjoyed all of them. You are one reason for my PhD work in Middle Eastern studies. I can’t say that, or anything like that, for all but a tiny handful of actors; normally I am the most anti-celebrity worship person on the internets. But you [...]

    i grew up with the legend that cats and skunks could mate, and make mule-cat-skunks. i still don’t know if this is true. but yes, they are adorable, smell aside. just keep them away from dogz.

    fuck em. i just tried. for me, here in totally NASA friendly TX, no meteors. nothing. no show, no slide, no streaking.

    what kind of party is this, anyway. fucking loosers. “NASA” lies.

    i need my jeebus bunny.

    this was a real problem in the great lakes last year. the late cold snap took out a huge percentage of fruit trees which had come into bloom only to get killed in the cold snap. serious damage to the economies of states like MI and WI, where fruit farms are a big part of [...]

    drive by good morning to all. ruth has departed from TX and is on her way to PA. she is in good spirits and the jolly green giant truck seems hardy and ready for its first major trip.

    JC: tell me about it! 82 yesterday, sunny. today: torrential winds, 39, overcast and dark. brrr!

    human sacrifice is always a tricky topic. judging from art is equally problematic. if you were an alien just coming to europe and you went to its museums, you’d think we’d spent 2,000 years killing all white guys with long hair and beards in a horrible torture device. there are well documented examples of white [...]

    because no one is looking for work in OH, and thus this is the best use of legislative time.

    it’s hard not to like bananas. they go well in so much. i like them as sweeteners in veggie shakes. 1 nana + a handful of spinach + a handful of kale + 1 tomato + 1 handful of parsley. surprisingly good. just blend and strain (or not, if you like a thick shake)

    things i would think are important to a successful restaurant: -know your market -know your pricing points -identify and quantify your ability to have good, professional employees -determine degree of graft/corruption in your chosen market -see what the overall food trends are in the area -identify most successful current establishments and investigate -identify capital sources [...]

    Many, many more restaurants fail than succeed

    and i can tell you why: ego. soooo many people who know nothing of the reality of running a successful restaurant think they do, and as you point out, iirc the restaurant magazine stats are 90% fail w/in 5 years of opening; but that was from the 90s back when [...]
