Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.


But garlic is good for you!

The Mrs. posits that [i]f you are adding more than a single clove of garlic in a recipe for 2-4, you're an addict. She goes on to suggest that garlic and chili-type spices are taste-deadeners. I suppose I can see that, knowing that people who like hot sauce tend to like it hotter and hotter as time goes by. And certainly you can get inured to salt to the point where you produce dishes that no-one else can eat. But I don't think I'll be signing up for her garlic-cure plan any time soon, no matter how it might benefit my taste buds--a month without the divine lily? Horrors....
