    If I forget to ask for the Chinese mustard when I do take-out, I get so angry with myself! Egg rolls and spring rolls are nothing without it!!

    I read online also. I do miss the physical opening up of the paper, and I really believe that I read more and longer when I have a paper newspaper in my hands. I'm more likely to read random things...

    I love Dijon. It's great for jazzing up things like potato salads and for general purpose.

    Because I am a HUGE Ian Richardson fan, I have to attach this classic mustard commercial.

    I don't mind cooking smells--broccoli, fish, garlic, curry, whatever. (I don't like greasy smells, though) Better than some of the alternatives (smoke, pet, stuffiness).

    Yes, that's what I was referring to--we absorb the iron from the food cooked in cast iron. I don't know if it makes an appreciable difference in our health, but it's a good enough argument for me to...

    I can't say it changed me--since I was small I had a fascination with people from other cultures and places--but travel colors my world.

    When I was a little girl/teenager living with my great-aunt in the summers, I LOVED the way the burgers tasted after being cooked in her cast iron pan. So, when she offered to buy me the first thing...

    Nothing to be ashamed about! I think people definitely are cut out to be either morning or night people. I am definitely a morning person, and in fact, when the kids were small I refused to help them...

    Interesting about the fund-raising.

    Regarding the impeachment impact on the senators, I was saying to DH, somewhat facetiously, that the DNC/Pelosi probably submitted the articles of impeachment...

    I watched the second one. It must have been maddening for him to hear the ignorant comments about what he "should" or "should not" be doing in his personal choices. Like bashing the vegan who wears a...

    I'm pretty much the same, even though I'm not retired. I work from home, and unless I have an early morning telephone interview, or have to leave for a flight, I can make my own schedule and get up...

    What about the ONLY interesting sideshow of the debate? After the debate, when Warren seemed to have some not-too-friendly words with Bernie instead of shaking his hand. They've come up with the...

    Wow, just started watching the video, and I'm going to comment as I go along...

    I don't think anyone who can't stir people can win--doesn't matter what their qualifications are on paper. I agree with ANM and Yppej--Biden may be the "logical" contender, and, yes, he's the DNC...

    I didn't see much new on the stage. Very few applause lines, but maybe that's because the room was filled with Iowans. I agree that Elizabeth Warren probably won the night. She did a great job in...

    Beautiful dogs, Tybee and Kelly! My last dog wasn't beautiful (I called her my scruffy ragamuffin)but she did love the snow. One year she escaped and "planted" herself in my garden.

    "In the old days" we made our clothes. Of course, we still had to buy the fabric. Who knew where that came from? Who knew how socially conscious McCall's and Simplicity patterns were? I loved making...
