On my Delta flight back to NYC from Toronto today, I was flipping through Sky magazine, and an article on the Mississippi Delta caught my eye.
Where to go. What to do. All the summer festivals, food and drink.
As I skimmed the recommendations, one bolded phrase caught my eye:
Pull up a chair and have a helping of barbecue at Kentucky’s Fancy Farm Picnic – – the world’s largest picnic – – held in August.
Look at that, friends and family! We’ve got another publication to add to the list!
I almost grabbed the PA from the flight attendant to get everyone to read page 83…but decided to let them discover it for themselves.
It’s more fun that way.

This article in your latest edition of Bulletin arrived just a bit too soon after the “60 is the new 40” story…
Let me have my illusions, okay?
(Or should that be ‘geezer?’)

I read a great article today —
How to Turn Your Favorite Snack Food into Seasoning
The author recommends buying a cheap grinder at your local grocery store — perhaps when buying salt or pepper — and when it’s empty, placing small, broken-up chunks of your favorite snack foods inside. Then use them as seasoning over appetizers, main dishes, desserts — you name it.
Voila — junk food seasoning.
Of course, my first thought was Cheetos.
(If you’ve read this blog before, this should come as no surprise.)
We already know that Cheetos dust is super yummy eaten right off your fingers. Imagine it sprinkled on any of your favorite foods that already pair well with cheese…like popcorn.
Now you can take your Cheetos seasonings with you. It’s certainly more portable than regular cheese since it doesn’t require refrigeration.
There’s enough preservatives in Cheetos to outlast us all.

Long live glossies!

I’m being stalked…by a number.
The number? 328. I see it everywhere.
Does it see me?
Every time I randomly glance at a clock, morning or night, it’s 3:28. I notice the numbers on street signs, too. In catalogs. In books and articles.
Does it really appear as often as it seems? Or have I just become hyper-aware of it?
Nope. It’s following me. And it’s been happening even more so this week, since March 28th came and went. But I’m not complaining…
I had a great birthday. (Thanks everybody!)
