I've spoken before about how much I enjoy the French dish of Escargot. Some people simply can't wrap their head around the fact that it is based on snails as food. But I can assure you that it is actually a handy platform on which to serve butter and garlic. As luck would have it … Continue reading National Escargot Day sampled in NYC

National Pizza Party Day
The third Friday in May is National Pizza Party Day. Apparently this is an end of work week suggestion for dinner plans when you are exhausted. Sounds good to me. Everyone can join in. There is not much easier in today's casual food culture than pizza delivered in a box. And easily one of the … Continue reading National Pizza Party Day
Throwback Thursday – A Long Ago Graduate
Now that Mother's Day has passed all the card shops and candy shops are focused on gifts for graduates. Yep, late May and early June is all about pomp and circumstance. So get out your mortar boards and begin the procession. Below is yours truly bonding out of high school. What dweeb! Grow a beard … Continue reading Throwback Thursday – A Long Ago Graduate
National Cherry Cobbler Day Redux
Today is National Cherry Cobbler Day. I have always marveled at these craftsmen and worry that automation will make them obsolete. You have heard the stories of the cobbler's kid who have no cherries? That's the pits. Okay, I know when I've worn out my welcome and driven this topic into the ground. Have a … Continue reading National Cherry Cobbler Day Redux
Remembering Mother’s Day
This is the first Mother's Day since mine passed away last year. Wanting to think happy thoughts took me back to 2009. Mom had just fought and won a hard battle with Lupus. Her doctor was proud of her changes in diet and exercise that helped the medical treatments she received. Her doctor recommended that … Continue reading Remembering Mother’s Day
National Lost Socks Memorial Day Redux
Today is National Lost Sock Memorial Day. Who knows what exactly is splitting up your beloved foot coverings? Laundry bag? Washing Machine? Dryer? Alien creature socknapping? Hard to know (because if you did, you wouldn't have lost your sock, now would you?). But whatever caused it, the sock is missing and you are left with … Continue reading National Lost Socks Memorial Day Redux
Public Service Announcement for a very special coming day…
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
I checked back to see how often I have celebrated Cinco de Mayo in my blog. The answer is zero because I have always known it is a false American holiday. It celebrates a successful Mexican battle over the French back in 1862. But despite what many Americans think, it is not the Mexican Independence … Continue reading Happy Cinco de Mayo!
National Star Wars Day
Because of a quirk in the calendar you have permission to tell all you meet "May the Fourth be with you." Like they've never heard that before, but go ahead be the life of the party. Don't get me wrong. I like the Star Wars franchise and the many spin offs and adventures that have … Continue reading National Star Wars Day
How are my Reds starting the season?
I read a variety of Cincinnati Reds media and the best line I read this week? "It is May 1st and the Cincinnati Reds are not in last place." Yep, that about sums up the last several decades for my RedLegs. The baseball news so far this season includes the improved rule changes for a … Continue reading How are my Reds starting the season?
