Pie-day

Posted: 21st October 2011 by affehaus in food stuffs, review

Today’s Pie: Pear & cranberry cheese pie. Well… it sure was a pretty pie. The Pie Master tried a new experiment. To be sure, we salute this pioneering attitude.  Alas… the artist is often restricted by his materials.  Michelangelo would have no doubt been a bit hobbled, had he been limited to Playdoh. Unfortunately, the […]

I Suppose It Was Only a Matter of Time…

Real live ammo for real (or imagined) living-dead people.  I’m not sure how to feel about this sort of campaign. My initial thought was that it was a semi-clever seasonal promotion for hot-load ammo… but reading the attendant copy, I started thinking that Hornady was making the analogy that the ‘zombies’ were the people disenfranchised […]

and cake. Thirteen Observations made by Lemony Snicket while watching Occupy Wall Street from a Discreet Distance 1. If you work hard, and become successful, it does not necessarily mean you are successful because you worked hard, just as if you are tall with long hair it doesn’t mean you would be a midget if […]

Comments Off on Muppet Rawk (III)

That is, the third in a series of Muppet Rawks. I’d never heard of the collections prior to now, but that’s because the rock under which I live doesn’t get a good internet signal. But these are selections from the third showing. Revolver, by Karin Madan

Pie-day

Posted: 14th October 2011 by affehaus in food stuffs, review

Today’s Pie: Strawberry Rhubarb Crust was, as one has come to expect, the very measure of perfection: perfect in color, flavor and texture, and the lattice was intricately woven. The ratio of strawberry:rhubarb was ideal (I can’t be certain, but I’m thinking 70 to 30), with there being just enough of the sour, stalkey plant […]

Here– Stick Your Foot In This…

I don’t wear slippers.  In fact, if I can help it, I don’t wear anything on my feet at all… But if I had slippers like these, and a fine chapeau such as the one pictured, I would be hard pressed not to sport them where ever I went. In fact, were it not mere […]
