Dept. of Educashun: The lessons of Easter Island.
The boy saves the Biomes Blog. I don't know what other bloggers do, but when I run into something I find interesting or amusing, I put the link into an appleworks document titled "blogstuff". This file has at least a years worth of links, thoughts and random stuff. I'm talking hundreds of links. Today the document got corrupted. In a panic I called the boy and he walked me through the process of trying to find another application that could read it until, finally, one of them worked. Man, I love that kid. I probably would have stopped posting for a good long time out of utter despair. Go say thanks (or curse him, depending on your opinion) here.
Timewaster of the Week: Ze Frank’s “String Spin”.
The truth about Pat Tillman. The guy turned down millions of dollars to do what he felt was right for his country.
And Ann Coulter chimes in and makes a fool of himself once again by showing up on fox and proving what a dope he his. He does have nice long blonde hair though.
According to my logs I got a visit from foxnews.com. Newsflash, kiddies, propaganda ain’t news.
Here's a diary I posted on DailyKos last June late one Friday night after coming across some photos of my old dog. Should make it obvious why this is a link blog and not full of my essays, heh.
This week's recipe is my Potato and Onion Frittata, in the extended post below.
Potato and Onion Frittata
- 1 1/2 lb potatoes
- 1 tbl veg. oil
- salt and pepper
- 1 cup diced onions
- 1 bag spinach
- 1 clove garlic, grated
- 6 eggs
- 2 tbl butter
Trim, steam and chop spinach. Peel and dice potatoes and boil* until soft and pat dry when done.
Place onion and garlic in 1 tbl oil and saute until the onions are soft. Remove from the pan, pour off oil and wipe the pan. Beat eggs in a bowl and add the cooked spinach, potatoes, onions, add salt and pepper and mix well. Melt butter in the pan and add the mixture when the butter foams. Turn heat to lowest and cook until the egg sets.
Run under a preheated broiler for about 30 seconds (do not brown). Flip it over onto a platter and slice when it cools.
*Preparing the diced potatoes by cooking them in about two inches of olive oil makes this dish really awesome but obviously adds a lot of fat.
