GLUTEN! I gave up gluten for a couple of weeks for my arthritis, and it did not make any difference, thank god. I would hate to have to give it up forever, but I would if it would help. Pasta is my second favorite food group, after bread. I'll check out the series maybe, once we're finished watching the screeners Ted has been getting in the mail for the SAG / AFTRA awards.

It's amazing how we can thwart ourselves, isn't it? I mean to blog for days and weeks but procrastinate. Good to see you are better about it than I've been. Mrs. Ombud and I several years ago got into a BBC series called the Private Life of a Masterpiece, watching it on Netflix DVDs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Private_Life_of_a_Masterpiece One of the episodes was about Gustav Klimt's "The Kiss." I remember the series generally as being well done. Mrs. O also enjoyed the Legion's exhibition on Rodin and Klimt. Sad, in a way, how we have to give up things like sugar in our diet to live better, isn't it? I'm also reducing gluten, which is nearly tragic for a home brewer. Welcome back, J.

It's a relief to be back! Thank goodness for brothers and keyboards. I do hope your wish comes true, and we can enjoy a leisurely meal at the Cliff House together some day. I would love to meet Rick, and I know you would adore Ted, your birthday brother.

I'm so glad to see you back! That orange bag is lovely, and it is such a thoughtful gift. What a nice idea. I have such a fond, happy memory of eating at Cliff House with you and Mikey. It is a gorgeous restaurant with a truly impressive view. It is on my WishList that I eat a long, leisurely meal there sometime, hopefully with Rick, Ted, and you. Again, so nice to see you back here writing again. XO

I love this picture of us, taken way back in 2001. Which explains how young we look. Richard's sister in law was getting married that day, which is why we are dressed up.

This looks like a delicious recipe. Who knows, I might try it and even follow it as written! ;-)

8 chicken thighs for 3 people means leftovers. I just had the last one, with plenty of sauce, shallots, and peas, for lunch. I really enjoyed this dish.

I know, that's exactly how I feel. One tiny little sensor in the control panel, and we decided to get a new dishwasher. It was almost the same amount of money, and with the stupid dishwasher, we worried that something else would break next. Ugh. I feel like a grumpy old man. "They just don't make things the way they used to!" "Get off my lawn!"

(I miss Everything But The Girl!) This is such a nice tribute to your Rosemary Friendship. Would that we all had TV Show closenesses with our old friends, as you describe them.

Beautiful photos of beautiful women. You're fortunate to have them in your life.

Lovely pictures, J. I'm glad for you that you were able to connect with them--yours is such a unique story!

OMG it drives me crazy how often an appliance breaks and it's doubtless some little two bit part inside the thing that can't be accessed and means landfill waste for 99.99% of it, which works just fine, before buying a new appliance. It's so resource inefficient and all in the name of corporate profit! We wash many dishes and gradually fill the dishwasher as efficiently as possible, running it only when full. And hoping that this one doesn't break down, too.

I think that may be the generic dish soap. ;)
