  1. Oh goody, another blatherskiting, bunkum post about one's perceived state of restaurant affairs. Seriously, Burger King = Have it your way!
  2. http://www.theatlantic.com/notes/2016/06/who-really-cares-about-the-oxford-comma/487475/ I do. I care. I care for the sake of the clarity, flow, and musicality of prose. I care because words matter, punctuation matters, and there is no other logical position besides being pro-Oxford comma. I care because I like jokes about my parents, God, and Stalin. (Actually, in that case, the joke only works if you take out the Oxford comma, which I refuse to do on principle.) Some people, apparently, disagreeincluding those who follow the APs style book, which is most traditional newspaper re
  3. I finally tested my thesis and it looks to hold true. Follow these steps:1. Put a sheet pan in the oven. 2. Turn oven on to 350f. Once the oven reaches temperature, let the sheet pan 'cook' at least 15 minutes. 3. Bring a pot of water to a boil, add individual pieces of bacon turkey to the water and blanch for at least 1 minute. 4. Place turkey bacon on paper towels and blot dry. I did four pieces and noticed anout 1 teaspoon of fat floating on the water and the water was very cloudy. 5. Place turkey bacon on the sheet pan and bake for about 10 minutes. 6. It'll take about 10-15 minu
  4. Great piece about him retiring on 60 Minutes last Sunday. His retirement lasted a week. http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2016/05/19/morley-safer-dead/

  9. Try blanching the turkey bacon for a minute and then cook it on the flat top. It should crisp up better. The blanching will help remove excess fat that keeps it from browning. I just looked up some turkey bacon nutrition labels and up to two-thirds of the calories is fat.
  10. Update: Evolution is now 3 / $9. I cleaned them out. Also bought Lioco Chardonnay 2011. I bought this from the winery for $25 about 2 years ago. Bought it from PW for $3.99. The provenance seems okay as the fruit is there and the after taste is long. I need to stop here almost daily to see what they have.
  11. Evelyn, if I ever give a concert, PLEASE don't buy tickets. And just to cover all the bases, don't come to Chicago. A similar thing happed to me regarding Harry Chapin. He was in town for a concert and tickets were still available the day before. I figured I'd see him the next time he's in town. Didn't happen.
  12. Barbara Richards, who founded Paloma Vineyard in Napa Valley with her husband, Jim, and created one of Californias finest sources of Merlot, died of complications from a stroke Monday. She was age 83. Barbara was a dedicated farmer who tended the couples 15-acre vineyard at the top of Spring Mountain for three decades. Gracious and humble, she could often be found driving her ATV through the vines, armed with pruning shears on one hip and a revolver for the rattlesnakes on the other. She was Paloma, her son Sheldon Richards told Wine Spectator. Together, Barbara and Jim proved what Mer
  13. Lucky you. We'd been waiting for release emails from a favored wine maker, son of a friend who has seemingly found his niche. Kept checking the website where finally they announced that every wine was sold out. Before club or public release. Well, okay, Go Tegan! But we'd still like a few bottles a year. i know... I was waiting for my Scarecrow allocation email. It finally came this week only to find I got shutout. Arg!
