Dear Whole Foods

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means…

ohYUM

Although I will admit that dingleberry “adds dirt” (and then some) to the flavor.

39 Years Ago…

We first took a jump to the left (and then a step to the right)

And Sometimes

…you curse the manners you were raised with: having a lovely lunch with a girlfriend and Bubba Watson strolls by the windows. Even stops at the corner across from Don’s for a minute or two. Took EVERYTHING I HAD not to go charging out of Jacksons Steakhouse like a total goober for a picture.

Maturity. I HATE IT.

Eels Well That Ends In A Well

World’s Oldest Water Filter has finally stopped working

Sweden is in mourning today over the death of the world’s oldest eel. Åle the eel was around 155 years old when he left a country bereft, a prodigious age for the European eel Anguilla anguilla which in the wild typically lives around seven years in fresh water before returning to the ocean to spawn and die. They can be very long-lived, though. The oldest recorded wild eel was 85 years old.

Åle was put in the well in the fishing village of Brantevik on the southeastern tip of Sweden by eight-year-old Samuel Nilsson in 1859. This was a common practice in a time when running water was rare (Stockholm only got public water mains in the 1850s; it took more than a century after that for waterworks to be installed in smaller towns) and a good eel could keep the home’s water supply free of bugs, worms, eggs, algae and any other number of critters. European eels will even eat carrion, so they’re extremely helpful additions to a well.

This particular eel has been a star for close to a hundred years, garnering articles in the paper, TV news stories and documentaries, even making an appearance in the Swedish Tom Sawyer, Bombi Bitt and I written by Fritiof Nilsson Piraten in 1932. Thomas Kjellman, current owner of the cottage, remembers Åle from when he was a boy. His family bought the house in 1962 with the understanding that the eel came with the property.

Who Knew?

Thank you every one for your kind wishes on our anniversary. To celebrate our special night I decided, true romantic that I am, to take my Bride (with Daughter tagging along for a free meal, natch) to the Outback Steakhouse (we wanted to go to the Inlet Cafe in the Highlands but the rain put the kibosh on that).

Well, sadly, the quality of the food there has slipped (as has the quantity of the servings: the cheese fries appetizer was noticeably smaller) but what caught my eye, and once again exposed my humble provincial upbringing, was this item on the menu:

Who knew that Sangria was a traditional Australian specialty?

By far the most well know aquarium tank, Of your current atlanta tank is without question online at little tumbles down and also greater 80,000 subjects(Quite besides eight million gallons about water) At intervals it is really membranes.

I’m a big fan of non-violent telecommuting.

…it’s still kind of surprising I got tabbed as The Magician:

You make the impossible happen. You See things (with a capital S), everything from people’s true colors to the obscure Easter eggs hidden in cult TV shows. Others see magic where you see the invisible matrix of how it works.

Yeah. That’s me in a nutshell, emphasis on the nut.

Yep, This Day Will Go Well

Sensitive, concerned type that I am I wake up before my alarm goes off (at just shy of 4 in the morning) 9 days out of 10, well more like 19 out of 20, really, and shut it off so as not to disturb my Bride’s blissful slumber. After all these years of doing this I just wake up, no alarm required.

This morning being no exception, I clicked off the alarm and got in the shower as always.

I was rather surprised a few moments later to hear my Bride’s voice saying “um, you do realize that it is 2:52 am, not 3:52?”

Argh.

I hates when I does that.

Happy Fourth

What better way to celebrate than with Australian wine?

“And Just As Tom Here Has Written, We Say TO HELL With Great Britain”

A masterpiece followed by one of the greatest acts of courage and sacrifice imaginable.

And so it WAS and still IS.

Happy Fourth of July!!
