*waves* Such a lovely bunch of people here. I've been lurking for a while and will likely continue to do so. I like German microphones, Irish Whiskey and short walks on the beach.
We're all Absolute Beginners.
@thisisunclear As a former resident of that fine city I can assure everyone that there is no "Drynuary" in New Orleans. What there is, is CARNIVAL, January 6 until February 12th. Then y'all can dry out.
@bocadelperro Yes! It can be only once a month! It takes financial dexterity sometimes, but keeping tidy is easier and life is far less stressful when I know that at the end of the month someone is going to come DO THE BATHROOM.
I also look at hiring a cleaner as helping the local economy and a small business, but that may in part be to assuage any lingering sense of guilt over the perception of luxury.
You had me at "[a] thick, red man falls out of a door." This is lovely and I hope you are feeling better.
@Lush Life Oh, HTML, you...
All the Brussels Sprouts love here is fantastic!
In an effort to eat healthy but not bland food, I've been experimenting with vinegar and veggies.
Can't remember the specific recipe but these two have similar ideas for a zesty side dish:
Sugar Snap peas With Lemon Mint Vinaigrette
Bacon & Balsamic Glazed Snap peas
Warm balsamic over asparagus topped with a dusting of slightly melted Parmigiano-Reggiano is also yummy.
The rock geek in me had a tiny titter over the Clapton necklace being auctioned by Bonham's (sorry Ginger).
Oh, how I love these posts.
Thank you for sharing! They are all full of love. And my favorite is the one of you with the lady in the blue dress because faces.
@lavender gooms Forever. And. Ever. *sigh*
@cinnamonskin GUMBO PARTY!! (I am so absolutely kidding.)
