… as usual. Trying to figure out the format and layout. Hopefully will start posting again one of these days soon. When I have time. When do i ever?
Wow… just found this old post that was in drafts. Not a lot of time for updating lately, everything seems to be updating on the baby (Rebecca)’s blog instead. I’ll try to put my own personal stuff in here, nothing is too new outside of us having the baby in July, being out of work on Maternity Leave and just generally chilling. If i can get a handle on how to update this, i’ll start again.
Author Terry Pratchett is suffering from a rare form of early Alzheimer’s disease, it has been revealed.
In a letter published on the website of artist Paul Kidby, the writer said the condition was behind a “phantom stroke” he had earlier this year.
Pratchett said his statement should be interpreted as “I am not dead” and that he had taken the news “philosophically” and “possibly with a mild optimism”.
That sucks. Hopefully with advances in technology they can stave off the effects as long as possible.
Well, again, its that time of year for the making of the bacon buns (latvian piragi) as i’ve been reminded by pretty much everyone around me. Looks like this year its gonna be a 3 weekend event — this is why I only do it one month a year, cause its a pain in the rear. This weekend past we managed around 280 from 3 batches, with 2 more weekends of cooking ahead.
Karen was looking for the recipe, so I updated the file into a PDF. bacon_buns.pdf
Heres a couple of pictures of a finished bun pile. Mmm.. piragi goodness.
I spent most of the weekend blaming mom for being Latvian, and for not being able to bake so this whole thing falls on me. Yes, they do taste as good as they look.
Today while me and my bf were going to the fish-store at lunch, we see a big bird flying overhead.
me: “hey, its a vulture. Thats wierd, a vulture… near work. Maybe something died”
bf: “yeah something died alright, over there” *points*
So, surely we had to pull over and take some pictures and make a short video. Without further ado, here’s a Vulture eating a dead goose on the side of the road, in an industrial/commercial area of Toronto.
