Re: Need Help: Vegetarian Recipes

cool. I like that site - and have been bookmarking a number of good veg and vegan sites for about a year or so now. With that plus my collection of cookbooks - I have more than enough for the next few decades! Here is what's on for tonight: The fresh Basil is so fragrant - the whole kitchen has that...

Re: Your rants here

hasn't been told and boss is a neutral default (with nice sarcastic optionality) Paul - much too  familiar, especially over there, with your caste system such as it is. Dr. Wilmott - formal (but obviously would be a better default) Doc? well, these are small problems compared to deciding what is for...

Re: Your rants here

I can think of many reasons for the “boss,” but anxiety would be pretty low down on that list! Ah, I see. I thought it was the constant querying.  But it is "Boss." Well, as the commercial says, "Who do you want to be today?" Dr. and Mrs. P. Wilmott Mr. Wilmott Your Excellency Doc  Memsahib? I like...

Re: Your rants here

“Can I get you anything, boss?” “Where are you going today, boss?” “Can I carry those for you, boss?” That may be a sign of anxiety - so a little empathy on your part, if you can muster it, might help. Once upon a time, I had a staff of ten people helping out around here in various shifts (not all ...

Re: trackstar's Needle Exchange

Heading out with my sister on a real wilderness adventure soon, but a few things for the forum before I go. (Granted, more for the women, seen and unseen, than the rest, but whoever enjoy the arts is welcome.) In this new series: 1) A little blue pillow (will be filled with herbs for pleasant dreams...

Re: You are rich, privately educated and intelligent. So why do you vote Socialist?

I am about to take an extended vacation from here, but before I go, I will assign some reading for all of you Tories, Lib Dems, Christian Right, Louche Left, and Anarchists.  Any who call themselves Socialists should already have a good feel for the history and definitions... But anyone can try this...

Along with Mrs. W and assorted children, pets, books....and of course all of my friends who will be crashing there short medium or long term... You will be in g...

The yarn. And for the economically minded - this is about $100 worth of hand dyed superwash merino wool. Lovely stuff - if you could only feel it through this forum, you would really like it. We need Virtual Reality!

Re: You are rich, privately educated and intelligent. So why do you vote Socialist?

Sure! As long as they explain why they aren't giving everything to the needy and opening up their mansions to the homeless.  There are ways to design more equitable distributions of resources and fairness in opportunities that don’t entail giving it all away. I have to get back on the road but here...

Are champagne socialists welcome on this thread?

Just want to make sure before I dip my bejeweled toes in the water.

Re: New book on machine learning

Looks like a LARGE Johnny Walker. Hmmm. I attended a real single malt Scotch tasting recently and the training set included Glenfiddich and The Balvenie. Both a deep amber hue - TB a bit darker and more mysterious... Long road trip today so no drinking and driving! But no problem to think about cla...
