  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
  3. 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
  4. 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/
  5. 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/
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Its looking like I will be there the second weekend of Dec. Someone else is in charge of meals. WooHoo.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. This morning in the garden, to get ready for fall, I planted radishes, lots of beets, onions to overwinter, sugar snaps, and nasturtiums to add to salads. Tomatoes are still producing, so are the jalapenos. I am leaving the sage till later to create smudge sticks. Fresh sage just smells like thanksgiving.
  16. Roughtail Everything Rhymes with Orange IPA.
  17. I do not remember the bulk of the dream but it seemed to feature cowbells. I have no idea. And I know Will Ferrell was not in it. I was finding cowbells everywhere. ???
  18. I miss the days when I could buy some of Chef Pim's marmalades. They were always so different and tasty. Of course I don't eat marmalade anymore so that will have to remain a memory.
  19. Considering I got a late start the raised bed is starting to produce. I had one big tomato that was just starting to ripen and someone snatched it, hope they enjoy it. Otherwise I will be getting a bounty of cherry sized tomatoes this week, do not know what types because they were all volunteers. The beans and peas should start flowering this week. The corn I planted has started to sprout tassels and it was mentioned I should spray for corn worms, I have no idea, any suggestions? And I have been enjoying the radishes. The basil has been productive enough that I have started putting some
  20. I'm rereading Common Sense by Thomas Paine. Haven't read it since high school. Very interesting and insightful.
  21. I was in Chicago back in April (my first trip there ever) and enjoyed the Little Goat for breakfast, Duck Duck Goat, and enjoyed Fat Rice. A side trip to Calumet Fisheries was also fun.
  22. April was the second coldest on record for our area and May was the hottest on record for us. June is turning out to be July hot. I'm dreading August. In the meantime I have been able to start a late crop including corn, tomatoes, pinto beans, garbanzo beans, bush green beans, breakfast radishes. Everything is coming up beautifully. Here's hoping it all makes it to maturity.
  23. I had a Tulsa Flag (blonde ale) from Dead Armadillo yesterday. Perfect for a hot muggy afternoon in the back yard.
  24. I was just out on my little patio checking out sunset and realized my herb pot was the typical Simon and Garfunkel herb pot. Yes, it is those 4 together. The rosemary for roasted chicken, the parsley with tabbouleh, the sage to purify my abode, the thyme, I have no idea. Maybe with some greek something or other. And there will never be a subway closer to me.
