Sunny Side Up

It has become a bit of a ritual for us. Every Saturday morning we go get breakfast at one of our favorite breakfast places (they serve other meals, too... but bagels are their thing, and they have good coffee). We are there often enough that the servers know us by sight, if not by name. […]

Dispatches From a Thanksgiving Kitchen

Turkey Update I OK... I am ready to get started. Just a question... How do you get the feathers off? Turkey Update II The police just left. Seems the neighbors heard the squawking, and thought that there was a domestic dispute. The cops had to sit in the driveway a few minutes to stop laughing […]

Experiencing Beauty

Cross-Cultural Man-Dog Revelations

A man says to his dog, "There are some things that I understand about dogs, but it seems to me that it isn't enough just to know the facts... For example, I know that for each human year, it is the same as seven years for a dog... but the idea of a year and […]

The Culture Shock of Culture

I read. A lot. Mostly I read newspapers, essays, journals and other non-fiction items. Of course, a lot of it is online, but you have to admit, the selection online is rather good. I generally don't have the time to sit down with a book... When I travel, I generally make a stop at the […]
