I just picked up a copy of this book, written by one of my favourite, philosophical bloggers. The chapter I just finished talked about the writer’s aunt who realised that she was suffering from Alzheimer’s. Inbetweenrealising she was losing her memory and completely losing her memory, there was a poignant story about the attempt to […]
Asafoetida: If you could bottle sweat, this is what it would smell like. But this spice, from giant fennel plants takes on a taste of onion and garlic once cooked. Whilst Ian was here, we picked this up at the Indian market (yes, we have one!) and now I toss it into any curry I […]
It’s hard to believe it’s crept up this quickly; inauguration day for our 44th President of the United States. Some will say it’s a momentous occasion because Barack Obama is black and that’s something important in US history. I don’t see colour. I only see a man who’s inspired many people to believe that it’s […]
… because once is never enough. We’re already going through our list of “things we can do next”, which involves a day-long tour of London. Yay!
I’ve been messing around with my bread machine the last few weeks. I have yet to find a recipe that delivers a soft crust, but today’s loaf at least has a nice-tasting inside. It really turned out like french bread, which is not a bad thing. Do you have a good bread machine recipe?

1. Which movie/television show best describes your life and why? “The Lake House”, only distance and not time. 2. A former friend that badly hurt you in past, now calls you up and asks for your help with a serious matter, one of life or death. Do you help them? Of course. I don’t hold […]
It is my dad’s birthday! If I was closer than 1300 miles away, I would make my dad this: Ten Cool Things About My Dad He knows the answers to all sorts of random things. He cooks awesome Chinese food and popcorn. He can drive patiently behind a city bus. And like it. (ok, […]
It was an AMAZING holiday. Ian arrived in Omaha on Christmas Eve (this was the short trip for him, in the end!). The arrivals board said the plane was on time, yet no plane. After 1/2 hour, I was getting a little worried curious about where the plane was. I was less concerned when I googled […]
We took Ian to the airport today, against our better judgement, to deliver him to the airplane which will fly him back to the UK. After enjoying a coffee (ok, and crying and laughing through the coffee), we said “see you soon” at the security gate, and he was off to be scanned. I watched […]
