The eleventh month















“November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.

With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring.”







Misfits







Artist:  James Himber - check it.

The work is who I am; there is no distance and everything is at stake. Otherwise, why do it?

“We''re all misfits here,” he says, almost proudly. “That's why I started this squat, after all.  For people like us, who don't fit in anywhere else.  Halfies and homos and hopeless romantics, the outcast and outrageous and terminally weird.  That's where art comes from, Jimmy, my friend.  From our weirdness-es and our differences, from our manic fixations, our obsessions, our passions.  From all those wild and wacky things that make each of us unique.”

Boston marathon bombing. 

 My heart goes out to all affected by this tragic event.

Why don't you burn it all down, burn your own house down, burn your own house down
Try to kill your own disease
And leave the rest of us, there's a lot of us, leave the rest of us
Who wanna live in peace to live in peace

Pork chop. You're out!










 Who knew the pork and beef industries needed a change. A name change that is. They will rename more than 350 meat cuts. The newly named cuts will be in a grocery store near you this summer.


  Expect names that offer more detail about the type of meat you’re buying. The name “pork chop,” for example, improperly describes a number of different cuts, according to the National Pork Board’s Patrick Fleming. 

  Different types of pork chops will now have steak names like New York chops, rib-eye chops, and T-bone chops.  Beef loin top sirloin cubes are now kabobs.  Pork butt, an unfortunate name that has nothing to do with a pig's butt (it comes from a pig's shoulder), is now a Boston roast.   And a boneless shoulder top blade beef steak is now a flatiron steak.   No upgrade in the name for ground beef. It's still just ground beef.
