This is what our governor said yesterday. I trust you. I trust that you are doing the right thing in the face of tremendous pressure. That’s why this has not been worse to this point. I’m not lecturing or telling you what to do. I’m asking you, as a fellow Mississippian and American, please do
Here’s the routine– where you are to read “Here’s” as Here was. Every Sunday morning we would go over the grocery lists– one for Mr. Big Food, one for me– based on the weekly menu. (He did the stores’ perimeters, I did the aisles.) To go over means to first shop the pantry and various
I thought this was nice.
Mr. Big Food and I once– 2012– presented a paper at a small conference. We have recently revised that paper for a nonacademic audience. It’s supposed to come out later this year in a volume titled, Dissenting Philosophers. It’s a fun essay. I’ll let you know when it’s published. I am not kidding that the
Good morning. Three and one-half inches of rain yesterday. Looks like it will be Drudge Work Monday inside today. Carry on.
All is well here on The Farm. Sadly, I cannot report the same for everyone. Eleven folks died. Here is the initial damage report. More than 72,000 homes and businesses without power. The phone just rang. Someone looking for the power company. From Mississippi Emergency Management’s twitter feed: Enough to make you cry, isn’t it?
So today I cried. It’s April 7th– Miss M’s birthday. And I missed it. But there was Tiger’s cameo appearance in the Business Ethics Video So there was that. Which led us to rent, for Three Dollars and Ninety Nine Cents, A Beautiful Mind— the 2001 movie about John Nash– at the end of the
Thanks to Miss M for sharing!
Sunday evening Mr. Big Food called his folks. You know how you can understand an entire conversation by only listening to one side? Not good. The Independent Living Facility in which Mr. Big Food’s Dad and Mr. Big Food’s Mom live had gone sort of lockdown last week. And those Independent Kids being who they
Here’s the story. Mr. Big Food is teaching two sections of Business Ethics this semester. It’s a service course. It’s not his area of expertise, but he’s good at it and he likes it, so he does it so that the junior faculty don’t have to. The students are mostly junior and senior business majors,

Powerline’s The Week in Pictures, Wednesday edition. I’m seeing a lot of this sentiment around the World Wide Web and in my texts.
By my count, the Jiffy Soup Recipes page (link in the header, too) now has 63 recipes plus 16 simple combinations, with more coming! We’ve been having a jiffy soup at least three times a month for more than a year. They are good. These recipes use one or more cans of soup, to which
There’s a new page up in the top menu. [Points up] It’s not finished– more recipes to add, and some html navigation stuff to put in. [Figured it out!] But if you’re wondering what you’re going to feed all of those hungry mouths next week– these soup recipes may help. Most of the recipes up
A text from Daughter C. to Kat, Miss M., and I: They are a funny bunch.
Background on the Guide to Daily Reading. More 3/14, 3/15, 3/16. All with commentary. There was an AH HA! moment yesterday. Reminder– GDRs take only 15-30 minutes to read. And believe you me, those minutes will be well-spent reading… Hawthorne’s The Great Stone Face. The Great Stone Face (1850) is a wonderful legend about the Man
