Menu disclaimer shows how stupid they think we are…

...and also shows how litigious our society has become.  What should be immediately obvious is that this dish contains two potential allergens.  Anyone reading the menu can see what its two main ingredients are.  Did they really need the disclaimer?  My bet is their legal team required it.  I will spare the restaurant by not …

An afternoon at The Fair

On Friday, September 9, Hubby and I again went to the Washington State Fair in Puyallup (in Pierce County).  This year's fair was much freer than last year's, when masks were required even outdoors!  I did not wear a mask last year, in defiance of the Health Nazis, and even though they were not required …

Quote of the day: Dangerous Water

Water is everywhere.  If you turn the tap in your kitchen or bathroom, what flows out of the faucet is drinkable water (at least in most places).  City water all over America is normally inexpensive and available for people and animals to drink.  Depending on where you are, the tap water may be "hard" or …

Terri’s Sunday Stills Challenge. Dessert? or Desert? Or both?

I checked, and I can't find any place where dessert and desert happen at the same time.  So I thought I'd highlight a little of both.  Multiple times, we have gone to Arizona for Hillsdale College National Leadership Seminars.  Of course, much of the state is desert, so it's really simple to take photos of …

CBWC: Piled or Stacked

She wrings her hands and cackles:  "Yesssss, she played right into my hands with this week's black-and-white challenge.  Little does Cee Neuner know, but our house is stuffed to the gills with things piled and stacked.  It was just a matter of choosing which stacks!" Let's start with the bedroom shelves.  Every one of these …

CBWC: Two of anything

Two bad it couldn't be Tuesday.  Friday will have to do. First of all, two mushrooms in the back yard. Next, inside.  Two special teacups.  We had our wedding dinner at Izumi Japanese Restaurant, and the owners gave us these teacups, which we cherish.  The letters in the open space center say the name of …

Sunday Stills: What might that Pacific Northwest #Aroma be?

Today's theme is aroma, and pictures that lead you to remember the #aroma of something.   So, I will start with an aroma that is one of my very favorites: the salt tang of the sea.  Since salt water is never more than a few miles away from our home in Everett, Washington, we are …

Sunday Stills Monthly Color Challenge: #Teal or #Aqua

As usual, my favorite example of a natural Teal coloring is Diablo Lake in the North Cascades.  There is a beautiful overlook mini-park just east of the town of Newhalem, and Hubby and I go there a couple of times every year.  The unusual color of the water is caused by glacial runoff, and the …

View From The 21st Floor-Birthday Dinner

Today, April 16, is my 73rd birthday.  Last night, Hubby and I went out for my birthday dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, Daniel's Broiler in downtown Bellevue.  We normally go there for both our birthdays, and on our anniversary in October.  We were not allowed to go there in 2020, as the Dictator …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #191: Curves

Have you ever noticed that Nature's God abhors straight lines?  Just look around you at Nature, and you will see that there are no straight lines in nature.  Everything in the natural world is curved.  Straight lines belong to items of human manufacture.  When explorers and archaeologists are searching for signs of human habitation, from …
