For the past three days, the kitchen at my office has been overwhelmed by a strong aroma of molasses.
No one has ‘fessed up to eating waffles or pancakes, or syrup in any of its forms, but the molasses smell remains.
Then I read that today is the anniversary of the Great Molasses Flood of 1919!
Now granted, it took place in Boston’s North End. And I’ve never thought of food as having a spirit life. But…
I’m pretty sure the molasses ghosts are in our kitchen.

I’ve never been a huge Star Wars fan, but it’s hard not to get caught up in all the excitement about the premiere of the latest installment…
Especially since I helped capture a stormtrooper last weekend outside a museum near Chicago.
Typical Sunday morning kinda stuff, you know how it is.

Pantone, the leading authority on color and color trends, just announced the Color of the Year for 2016.
There are two: Rose Quartz and Serenity.
Pantone says these shades reflect society’s ‘search for peace and tranquility.’
I think someone on the selection committee is having a baby.

As many grilled cheese sandwiches as I have eaten in my life, I can’t understand why I don’t own these yet…
I must be a part of the club, right?
(Probably wouldn’t wear them…but it’s the principle of the thing — ya know?)

Oh, great Apple:
Your products have seduced legions of worshippers, prostrate before thee at your Apple chapels.
But your plugs are a sin.
