From the collection at The First Romanian School in Brasov. Interestingly, books and pamphlets were printed as single (double sided) pages, and not in quarto format. A quarto (from Latin quartō, ablative form of quartus, fourth ) is a book or pamphlet made up of one or more full sheets of paper on which 8 pages of text were printed,

What do you make of this? Genuinely interested in your th. [Insert your thoughts here.] Do your thoughts change with the knowledge that this work of art measures about 10’ x 12’ or so? Whatever you make of this as a single piece, can you conceive of it as the inspirational motif for the interior
Aside. Started reading a crappy new book, Paul Revere’s Ride By David Hackett Fischer. More on this to come.

November 2. Started this, and several other posts, within the last week or two. Figured I might as well finish them up while I wait for Mississippi State to start getting beat, again. What I’m going to take issue with is “enjoy.” I don’t think they really enjoy it at all. I have little experience
The Food Truck was a big hit. Everyone except graduate students and post-docs chipped in $10. There was complete agreement that the food available at the Food Truck was far superior to the awful $22 boxed lunches provided by the hotel the day before. All things considered, Mr. Big Food and I were out 10
Spent the weekend with some smart and fun people. FYI. Everyone agreed that it’s hot. Also. Fed 30 people for under $200 because I know how to do that. More on this to come.
Mr. Big Food has arranged a very cool two-day workshop at a beach location. Unfortunately, the beach hotel charges an exorbitant amount of money for boxed lunches. So he did some thinking– which he’s really good at– came up with a plan, consulted with me and the other work shoppers, and we’re going to set
You can’t do anything in California. From a trip a few years ago. I’m sure it’s gotten better by now.
Long time readers may be wondering why I haven’t been talking about the Mississippi State A&S tailgates yet. New readers may be wondering what I’m taking about. For the past three years, Mr. Big Food and I have not only cooked for the 120 or more who attend the Arts & Sciences tailgate, we were

I just stepped outside and heard a siren! Almost unheard of out here.
We went to Jackson last week. Stopped for gas on the way home about 10 miles from the exit we normally take. Mr. Big Food suggested rather than getting back on the interstate, we cut the hypotenuse on the back roads. Very pleasant.

We caught about 50+ crappie (pronounced ‘croppy’) this morning. We are taking pounds and pounds of crappie fillets back to Mississippi. There is a fish fry in our future. It was a beautiful morning, atypical for Texas this time of year. Started off almost chilly. Met up with the guide at the local gas station
There are fish involved.
