No food this time – just an account of perhaps the most extraordinary half year in my life, in Brattleboro, Vermont, in the late ’90s.
A wonderful, rich baked scallop recipe, and Margaret recalls the late Cecil Caine at his most ornery.
A perfect, rich, genuine Southern pecan pie recipe that uses no corn syrup, and some easy chatter about “Just who do you think you are?” with one possible approach to finding an answer: the Johari Window.
I try to make the famous two-slit experiment in quantum physics simple and accessible. Uh huh. How do you do that when the final results are utter nonsense? Also a terrific, smooth and rich Bolognese sauce – much better than the recipe I posted years ago.
Sen. Michael Thibodeau has single-handedly dealt a mortal blow to Ranked Choice Voting. Yes, he’s Senate President and a Republican, but does that entitle him to obstruct the will of the people? Uh uh.

Brief recollections of writing comedy scripts for serious corporate clients… and a great fluffy cod fritter recipe!
