Solution for a messy problem

Posted by creative-fancy on November 4, 2016 at 5:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Our local grocerystore overwaters their produce and items are likely to arrive home wet. I eat radishes as a low-calory snack on my morning break and was often discomfeited by the tendancy for the folliage with which radishes generally arrive, to become rotten in the fridge. I’d been in the habit recently of pulling off the leafy stuff and composting it then washing the radishes.

More recently though I got wondering about the edible potential of radish greens. Neither the donke...

A Tale of two yogurts - part 2

 

Soy Milk and Soy Yogurt

 

I recently found that I could do exactly the same thing with soy milk. I don’t like soy yogurt as well as I like cow or goat yogurt but I’m choosing at this time to stay away from dairy products so here is how I make soy milk.

 

Ingredients needed:

 

4 ounces (around a half cup) of raw soy beans.

Look for them at an health food store, co-op or ask a...

A Tale of two yogurts - part 1

 

Making your own soy milk, and both standard and soy yogurts

 

 

I want to talk about three things in this little article. These are all things that have been known about by lots of people, but not by most people, and generally not all found in the same place. I’ll start by telling you how milk yogurt is made by me at least; and I’m lazy and like to do as little work as possible. In part 2 I'...

Robert Heinlein

Posted by creative-fancy on November 5, 2014 at 11:50 PM Comments comments (0)

I’m currently reading the second volume of a biography Robert A. Heinlein in Dialogue with his Century by William Patterson.


It’s interesting how hard he had to fight to keep any semblance of works he originally conceived and most of his juvenile novels were evidently changed a good deal due to editorial intervention. Though always patriotic and essentially pro-military, Heinlein actually saw himself as a traditional liberal until the mid 1950s or so when he b...

Presentation given at DSHS Diversity Conference

October 30, 2014


Hi, I’m Dave and I’m a recovering sighted person but I try to be at least two things at once! Blindness isn't generally as much of a barrier for me as what others do with it; the assumptions, sometimes neglecting to notice I’m even there. When I was young, people talked about my vision being restored someday. When I was in grad school a man stated, as if fact, that I was ...

Elections

Posted by creative-fancy on October 18, 2014 at 3:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Elections are again on the near horizon. Incumbents are going merrily along as if they should continue in what has become for many, a lifetime subsidy. Let’s not forget that not so many months ago, denizens of both parties paralyzed (our) Federal government due to their obstinant refusal to work together for compromise.


 

Both parties were and are at fault as well as the President. Both sides have valid points and both have glaring faults. What...
