Happy Friday!

It’s been a week, that’s for sure.

Brian Williams and Jon Stewart: Just say it isn’t so on both counts, please. I’m feeling a bit bereft about it all and the two are oddly intertwined in my head. But maybe not so odd – or at least I’m not the only one. (Slate)

I stop and watch the Android television commercial every time it comes on, because it’s sweet and it makes me smile. And Roger Miller has a lot to do with that. Roger Miller: genius. His voice just makes me want to slow down and brings a smile all on its own, even without deer and horses and tigers and bears all frolicking happily about.


What’s that you say? Taylor Swift and Nine Inch Nails? Hell, yeah.


So first we have to survive this Friday that’s a 13th, then there’s the 14th, which can be trying in many ways, too, right? Good luck all!

Vegetable and Pearl Barley Soup With Parsnips

barley vegetable soup with parsnips

Dear Readers:

I often eat vegetables like medicine. When they appear on my plate, through no fault of my own or by my own design, I eat them first and get them over with so I can get on to the tastes on the plate that I actually enjoy.  It doesn’t matter if I’ve cooked them especially well, chances are I won’t really like them. But not parsnips; parsnips… Continue reading...
