  1. I'm looking forward to this opening. https://faroutmagazine.co.uk/bob-dylans-portraits-and-handwritten-lyrics-go-on-show-at-new-exhibition/?fbclid=IwAR3E3banwxBdUJlNndMLr7sbQyc_aBodHo_4lUGL2XK7JREMrDftHG0wjsA
  2. I will be down to judge some Steak Cookoff Association steak events. On Saturday we will be at Trinity Distlllery - http://www.steakcookoffs.com/event-3123045?CalendarViewType=1&SelectedDate=3/27/2019 and on Sunday we will be at Wild Acre Brewery - http://www.steakcookoffs.com/event-3123044?CalendarViewType=1&SelectedDate=3/27/2019 . I like Fort Worth, It isn't as hip style wise as it's neighbor Dallas. But the arts museums are pretty incredible. A big plus is I will get to spend some time with a niece. The steak judging is a move beyond KCBS bbq judging. The bbq judging I have been doing for 15 years now. The steak for only 4. I have entertained checking out World Food Championship but for now have decided to not go that way. Competition food judging has given me a chance to explore a very niche part of the culinary world and meet some interesting and fun people, both the cooks and the judges. We do consider ourselves family. If I have time in Fort Worth I will try to get to the Kendall museum. And I have left meals up to Janet. .
  3. Fort Worth at the end of the month
  4. The next show I am looking forward to is https://philbrook.org/exhibitions/larry-clark-tulsa/ Here is the museums blurb. "World-renowned photographer/filmmaker Larry Clark was born and raised in Tulsa. From 1963 to 1971, he photographed the daily lives of his friends. He captured unforgettable images of sex, violence, and drug use alongside intimate moments of solitary contemplation. These images were collected in Clark’s legendary and controversial 1971 book, Tulsa. These pictures launched both Clark’s career and a new style of photography marked by equal parts intimacy and objectivity. Filmmakers Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, and Gus Van Sant cited Clark’s visual influence on their films Taxi Driver, Rumble Fish, and Drugstore Cowboy, respectively. The gritty, honest, and ultimately compassionate look at drug abuse in Tulsa feels timely and vital even now as the United States grapples with a wide-reaching opioid addiction and renewed debates about gun and domestic violence. These concerns are at the core of the Philbrook Downtown presentation of selections from Philbrook’s newest acquisition, a 50-print portfolio of photographs from Clark’s Tulsa series. Larry Clark: Tulsa is presented with generous support from the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation."
  5. Apparently they were able to entice some people to relocate. https://www.readfrontier.org/stories/tulsa-remote-program-to-pay-for-many-more-people-to-move-to-city-than-originally-expected/?fbclid=IwAR0fe7zt-rtixNPLBDi0yHwg7AR6KvpqNGlWcWvOKBmHIUnk61LQJIJdvLI And here is their official web page for Tulsa Remote. https://tulsaremote.com/
  6. The plate was made be an artist, Ann Frantic, who lived in Pensacola, FL. The title of the plate is Julia Child. http://www.southernvisionaryart.com/gallery-frantic.htm I enjoy her work, I have some other pieces.

    Katie Loeb

    One of the early proponents of the Craft of Cocktails has passed on. I have fond memories of communicating with her in the early days of posting about foods. This is the most current information I can post but a dear friend has posted about her death. https://www.phillymag.com/foobooz/2018/12/03/katie-loeb-cocktails-hospice-philadelphia/
  8. When I bought my one ticket Tulsa to Pensacola I originally checked coach fares, then out of curiosity I decided to see how much for First Class on Delta. $270. I grabbed it and have not looked back nor questioned it. Last time was $800. My lucky day. One way because I am driving a car back via New Orleans and Shreveport with a lunch in Paris, TX thrown in for good measure. I had checked the fare 2 months ago and i was quoted $590. I am going to enjoy my lunches.

    Stephen Hillenburg

    It is a sad day in the culinary world and Bikini Bottom. The creator of the Crabby Patty has passed. Bikini Bottom will never be the same. http://www.tmz.com/2018/11/27/stephen-hillenburg-dead-dies-spongebob-squarepants-creator-als/ He was only 57.
  10. Its looking like I will be there the second weekend of Dec. Someone else is in charge of meals. WooHoo.
  11. Do they sing about MSP like this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkCZWuo1ThE Not perfect and we love it that way. Just lost a fellow resident, Roy Clark, and he was interesting and SO funny.
  12. And bonus work from home. Know anyone that works from home and is thinking about moving? https://www.tulsaworld.com/goodnews/would-you-move-to-tulsa-for-the-george-kaiser-family/article_cce94a24-6943-5098-acdc-9c6208d5fd4c.html
  13. Arby's is doing a test run for a new sandwich. None of the 16 stores are anywhere near me so I guess I will have to learn to live without. Sort of like how I learned to live without In-and-Out. https://arbys.com/duck
  14. https://www.nola.com/dining/index.ssf/2018/09/rene_bajeux_dies.html I worked for Chef at the Windsor Court Hotel. So much respect for his talent.
  15. I'm going to have to replant the beets, half of them were drowned with a very heavy rain when they were too little to fight back. I will also plant more radishes. The nasturtiums. are looking healthy. I have a whole bunch of dill volunteers so I will leave them, they are in amongst one of the beets patches. The sungolds are still producing. I think I will put down some onion seeds to overwinter. along with some more garlic.
