Ancient Mosaics

Check out the pictures here:

As a kitchen designer, I am often working with tile mosaics in the backsplash. They rarely look this good.

This is a terribly sad picture

I really feel sorry for this woman, the owner of a cake shop in Ferguson:

What was done to her shop is a real injustice.

Cooking your Turkey

This woman has the right idea:

“Just put the turkey in the fucking oven.”

Again, the hat tip goes to Gerard.

Really, as someone that has cooked the turkey for family gatherings for over 20 years, it won’t turn out perfect and, because it’s turkey, it will taste like cardboard. The drinks are the key to the whole thing. We are having a smoked turkey. To go with that we are going to have afternoon cocktails (during the Cowboy game) that will include cranberry margaritas. I’m also going to do a leg of lamb, so we’ll also have red wine and tasty beer with dinner. The key to a good Thanksgiving dinner is managing your guest’s alcohol consumption.

Update for 2014: We are probably going to have a more conventional Thanksgiving menu this year. Last year’s was great, but we do have to mix things up a little. No mashed potatoes though. I’m going to grill slices of polenta instead.

The WKRP in Cincinnati Turkey Drop

A repost:

From Hulu, here is the entire episode:

For those of you who remember the episode, here is one of many youtube cuts that boils  the whole thing down to its essential core:

Now I’m going to go find the Chinese food episode from Bob Newhart.

Bob did a really good job of managing his property. His stuff is not available for free.

A little sample of West Texas culture

Well worth your 11:45. Really, I don’t know that I’ve laughed as hard in a while:

I found this on Gerard’s site.

It’s Time…

To start thinking about apple pie…

Mary-Louise Parker Apple Pie

That would be an interesting outfit to serve dessert on Thanksgiving…
