    That's my take on it. I did experience a brief bout of turista in Mexico City, but really--that was to be expected. And I torpedoed myself with some pork past its prime a few months ago (which was...

    I've eaten tamales con elote sitting on a curb in Tijuana, and that never crossed my mind.

    I need to binge-watch the first season. I agree with you about Samuelsson's theatricality "I LOVE THAT!" (He puts together some fab costumes, though.)

    Food on TV

    I watch several shows on the Food Network, and I'm currently enjoying a PBS offering--No Passport Required. It's kind of a stateside version of No Reservations, with chef Marcus Samuelsson, in which...

    I could happily eat red meat every day, but there are only so many meals, and I like many other foods as well.

    Bucking current food fads, I'm convinced it's one of the most nutritious and...

    I haven't tried quorn--I think it's fungus-based--and I'm with you. Someone pointed out the ingredient list for the "Impossible Burger" is indistinguishable from dog food. Dogs and people do best on...

    Really bland or really outre' are least likely to become dated. "Follow the herd" styles come and go.

    I'd probably just eat deli meat rollups and hard-boiled eggs if I wanted the simplest meals.

    The idea that "all's fair in politics; winning is the only thing" (to mix metaphors) is a fast slide down a slippery slope, and we should fight it where and when we can.

    On the other side, as well. What's the point?

    Clearly, right-wing talking points are lost on me. We are all informed by various associations; they make us who we are. We vote accordingly. I don't...

    I don't necessarily blame Bush; it was apparently a scheme someone (ill-advisedly) came up with. And I'm all for as much transparency in government as possible, barring national security issues.

    Oh please--stop with the silly "identity politics" shtick.

    Credit unions are customer-owned, and thus much more responsive to your concerns. They afford all the safeguards of traditional banks.

    I'm wondering what Republicans would consider impeachable when it comes to themselves--murder, maybe?
    Trump and his henchmen have trampled any conventions of ethical behavior.

    Money generally bores me, and all that churning would be the last thing I'd want to do.
