Human and Tortoise Strawberry Treats

Today, organic strawberries were on sale for $2.50/quart. They were pretty yummy.

I bought organic cream, raspberries and ghirardelli chocolate to go with it.

I whipped the cream with out new beaters, it felt like cheating because I have been using the old fashioned crank ones for years, till (e:lilho) insisted we get the electric ones during her visit. I added a little vanilla nd sugar. Then I sliced the berries and rubbed them in a little organic, evaporated cane sugar and hand grated the chocolate over the top.

Basra (e:paul,32584) got a treat out of it too. He loves the strawberry tops.

Speaking of treats for Basra, he got a new UV lamp today and also discovered humping things. I think its like a whole new world for him.

Possessed by the devil

I cut my beard and then tried to take a pic of my new facial hair.
Each pic came out crappy because of low light. The iPhone is pretty
terrible with low light conditions. This one was especially scary
because it only blurred my eyes.

Organic grass fed beef sirloin

How is the coop going to compete with this? Wegmans now has organic grass fed beef at such a great price, and it looks really good too.

These two cost $7.60. Considering that each one is enough beef for a
whole meal, that is a pretty good deal.

It's also super tender.

Applework smoked bacon chocolate

They have the Vosges bacon chocolate at wegman's now. I can't begin

for (e:mike)'s birthday.

The shedding tool?

We just saw this by the cash register at pet supplies plus on
Deleware. Each person that walks by does a double take. What can it
possibly do for $50. Does it come with "happy ending" LOL. Somehow I
think I might have written about this before.

Winter In Buffalo Pics

As a side note, I also updated the pics from the trip to the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens (e:paul,47265)

Why do people always use the snow on our porch as an ashtray. I can't stand smokers of filtered cigarettes that leave their butts everywhere. They do not biodegrade. I am fine with rollies being left around, but the plastic filter thing is redic. The lack of responsibility smokers take in their trash disposal is astounding. (E:iriesara) being an exception as I saw her storing her butts in her purse.

I walk to work every day and the path is usually covered in snow. Depending on how fresh it is, it is in many differnt states.

Clean Snow

It was so cold that day, the door got ice in the hinge which froze it open.

Dirty Snow
Two days later, it started raining a bit and warmed up. You guys probably remember seeing it was only like a week ago. This made for messing sloshy, muddy, scum snow.

Korean vegtable?

We ate at Korea house the other day and had the Korean barbaque. It's so awesome, you sit around the grill while the matronly Korean lady cooks your food. Then you get letuce leaves and rice along with a
multitude of side dishes from kimchee to radish and fish cakes. You take all the side dish things and put them on the rice with the meat and then wrap it all in a lettuce leaf, kind of like a lettuce taco.

God, it is so tasty. Anyhow, this time they had something she refered to ask Kohare. At least I think so. It was a delicious vegtables that resembled some sort of plant stem. Does anyone know about it? I want more.

A Virus On The Prowl

Remember when I wrote about my feeling concerning getting rid of windows in government organizations (e:paul,47052) - well nothing could underscore it more than a computer virus outbreak at the hospital yesterday. Its something virus makers probably don't even think about - what hapens when their stupid programs hit life or death kind of places.

Its such a disaster waiting to happen. Vendor software is not always compatible with system updates, systems don't get patched, worm comes and bam! It just seems like such a bad idea to have everything depend on windows and then worse to run an outdated OS from 5 years ago with IE6, a stone age browser. Especially considering those two in combo are the biggest and weakest attack vector. Its just asking for trouble.

The worm was getting people accounts locked out and slowing down the network. Imagine if you were at the hospital for some serious treatment/appointment and the computers were "on the fritz" because of unsafe computing, argh.

I made this image for a journal about bluetooth cell phone virus's back in 2004 (e:paul,31005) but I think it still gives a similar feeling for the drama.

Tossed aside like trash


It's the tragic story of every Christnas tree. Bought on a street
corner, decked out like a tramp on chipewa and then tossed out limp
and lifeless with the trash.

I know this will make people mad but...

I would be happy to see israel blown off the face of earth. I just don't see what good it is supporting them. Imagine how different our relationship with the Arabs would be of we gave up on Israel.

Not only that but if the whole thing was blown away no one would fight over all the bullshit religious monuments. I think the only way to move on is to start with rubble.
