Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.
My sister in Chicago sent me this today.
It was really nice of her.
Tell her I say thanks
Tell her the entire Internet says thanks.
Tell them I say my bed is burning.
I’m not even in this fandom, but hearing this made me feel so much better about life
I needed this today.
I was looking around for the “how to fold your Hermès Scarf” book and stumbled across this.
A couple/few years back I spotted a period Bundt pan on eBay and snagged it. It came along with its original recipe book (dating is difficult as there’s no explicit copyright info on it, but it has a Zip code on the front cover, which means 1963 at the earliest).
"Unusual Old World" recipes… Yeah. Potica: interesting. The Coffee Cake (Jewish Origin*) is just fine. The Sausage Cake is, well, ingredientially conflicted and I don’t think I’ll be serving it.
As for the fourth image, though, and that first recipe… I’m just now becoming able to breathe again. What can I say? It was in some ways a more innocent time.
*Is it just me or does this somehow seem vaguely like a warning notice of some kind? (eyeroll)
Comparison is an act of violence against the self.
The first and third were drawn by James Silvani (http://silvaniart.tumblr.com/) who is utterly awesome and deserves credit for his art.
I’m sure the second was also drawn by someone who deserves credit for their art. I hope somebody adds their name to this post.
I have to share this for CHKM

↳ Doesn’t matter what the press says. Doesn’t matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn’t matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world — "No, you move.”
Happy Fourth of July, folks.
Mr. President, members of the NSA, various members of state legislatures in Texas and Ohio and North Carolina: you move.
attn @petermorwood: What is your signature recipe doing in my Google Drive? You want to store this somewhere for future generations.) :)
…For those who may be interested: This is a Mexican recipe that Peter devised from one originally intended to use a whole pork roast. It’s really good. The last time he made it for a big crowd, georgetakei was seen polishing out the near-empty casserole with a piece of bread to get at the last of the sauce. The pic above was taken while Peter was making it in Vienna for a couple of opera singers of our acquaintance.
Recipe details under the cut.
(Note to @alesandriana: Re the tarragon vinegar: In places where you can’t buy it, you make it. Get white wine vinegar, heat it to a simmer, stick tarragon into it, take it off heat, bottle it back up and leave it alone for a week or so. [Even dried tarragon will work if you’re desperate.] Re juniper berries: a good grocery will have them from one of the major providers [Schwarz in the UK, or McCormick/Schilling in the US]. But they are kinda regional. Health food stores or specialty ethnic groceries sometimes have them.)
