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
Sunday Evening Art Gallery — Matt Molloy Claudia has posted some of Molloy’s amazing photos. Give them a look.
Punctuation is perhaps one-tenth rule and nine-tenths art. In that portion that is controlled by art, writers will differ, sometimes radically. The art of punctuation is the art of rhythm, for punctuation’s second function, after its first function of helping to establish clarity, is to set the rhythm of sentences. Rhythm in prose, it turns

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.
I don’t think that you can get a better sense of the sort of meaning than from what is in every bookshop in this city… . Douglas Murry via Powerline
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.

June 6, 1944– Tonight’s communiqué just in from D-Day invasion headquarters summarizes the news. “Allied forces,” it says, “have succeeded in their initial landings in France; and fighting continues.” Lowell Thomas was the Walter Cronkite of radio. Beginning in 1930, he broadcast twice each evening on CBS radio. It was said that his voice had
What does a photodynamic South-African sheep disease (Geeldikkop), navel-gazing hesychastic prayer (omphalopsychite), and Dionysian theatre altars of antique Greece (thymele) have in common? National Review, May 31 I rarely look at NRO these days, but when I do, I expect better than this. What does a photodynamic South-African sheep disease (Geeldikkop) have in common with
As a supplement to yesterday’s little rant about cooling your home, I present to you the Dogtrot House: two cabins with a shared roof connected by a breezeway. Cabin doors open onto the breezeway– or dogtrot. It’s all about air circulation. One cabin served as kitchen and dining area, the other was living and bedrooms.
“Teen wounded in ordeal is back home.” It was an “ambush and hours-long standoff with a heavily armed man.” Some dumbass, no doubt aided along by alkeehol &/or drugs was beating on a woman late at night and she called 911. She apparently asked to meet with a deputy at the sheriff’s office. The information
