Grown up Wednesday Addams vs. catcallers

I'm just going to leave it here:

BBC The Super Rich and Us, Episode 3

Excellent series so far, click on the video title to navigate to You Tube to catch the first two

BBC: The Super Rich and Us, Part2




Well worth the time to watch. I posted part one last week.



BBC: "The Super Rich and Us"

This is episode one in the series and is worth watching. Everything they're saying about the UK has been taking place here, although the austerity is only starting with cuts to food stamps and Medicaid. The 1% want more and they'll get it:

To Peel an Egg

Found this while surfing, haven't tried it yet but it actually should work pretty well:

They were also responsible for some that was hilariously bad

A tour of the Newport "cottages" is quite an experience in class arrogance and cultural inferiority at the same time.

Most of the cottages on the tour have at least one, and usually several, rooms that were dismantled from great houses in Europe and reassembled here, presumably so the new owners could impress the titled former owners with them. The enormous piles of masonry usually had one or two splendid spaces designed by architects then a hodgepodge of reassembled rooms, often gloomy ones so you know why the decadent aristocracy in Europe parted with them.

It was new money social climbing at its gaudiest and most futile.

I haven't been to Miami Beach in many years, either, but I imagine a few of the art deco structures were saved, only to be dwarfed and kept in perpetual shadow by high rise monstrosities.

Brunswick stew

OK, I haven't been shopping in a couple of weeks but had a fairly well stocked freezer and most staples, so I defrosted a pack of chicken wings and looked at it for a couple of hours before I decided what to do with them and a bunch of other unfriendly ingredients.

When it was done, I wondered why I hadn't made it in a long time, it was spicy and earthy at the same time, high protein and satisfying on a day in the high desert that barely got into the 20s.

Pack of chicken wings, dredged in flour mixed with cayenne pepper (I used a lot and was glad)
Olive oil
1 onion, chopped finely
2 cloves of garlic, minced

Fry the chicken until golden brown, remove and saute the onions and garlic

Add one can chopped tomatoes with their juice
Add 2 cups chicken stock or water with Better than Bouillion (what I used)

Add the wings and simmer for half an hour.

Add sweet corn and baby limas to taste, frozen is easiest, and cook until they're heated through.

Serve with bread for sopping or rice or just as is.

What I ended up was a stew with a nice, thickened tomato gravy and enough cayenne for a kick but not enough for a kick in the ass.

It tasted like coming home.

You know the "paleo diet?" Welcome to the PLIO DIET

which, if you add in termites, grubs and grasshoppers, is the paleo diet.

The Oatmeal explains net neutrality to Ted Cruz

No, I don't like blind links, either, but their format isn't conducive to cut and paste. Besides, c'mon, it's The Oatmeal!

It's a great explanation, short and to the point. Even Ted Cruz could understand it if somebody read it to him.

Finally! Republicans explained!

American scientists have located a virus that attacks human DNA, which may cause those infected to be less intelligent, impairing brain activity, learning and memory.

Researchers from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and the University of Nebraska have identified traces of an algal virus, known as ATCV-1, in throat swabs drawn from healthy volunteers which appeared to lessen their mental capacity.

The researchers had originally been working on an unrelated study into throat microbes when they unexpectedly located traces of ATCV-1 in human DNA samples. At first the research team, led by Dr Robert Yolken of Johns Hopkins, didnít know what ATCV-1 was, and had to carry out a database search to find out more about the unknown virus.
