Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.
Kentucky Fried Chicken people have created what most of us would consider the unthinkable. They now have nail polish flavored with two of KFC's favorite recipes-Original and Hot and Spicy. It makes the old "finger lickin' good" come to life.
Read a story from St. Louis' free food paper, Feast, this morning. It tells us radishes are in season. Well, maybe not. We've planted radishes at the seminary some time back and they are no where near ready or even formed. It's just been too cold. Better this story came out in May. Same with cool weather vegetables like lettuces and kale and other greens. But what is doing well and ready to pick and cut are chives and of all things, asparagus. We've been getting both for over a week now.
If you like ice cream, especially in the summer, you're in for a big price rise. This is due to a shortage of vanilla beans, a main ingredient in most ice creams. Most of our vanilla comes from Madagascar which has seen a poor harvest this year. And not just ice cream costs will be affected. Vanilla is also in most cakes and pastries, as well as perfumes! Perfumes! Who knew.
It's been a while since I put up a picture of Jake so here he is today, Good Friday, having a fast food lunch out with his parents and brother. It seems by this picture he doesn't get fast food milk shakes that often since his face is pure ecstasy.
A weird theft story and one in which I'd like to know the why. A St. Louis man is accused of stealing $13,000 worth of nuts from his employer. That's it for the story and no explanation at all. What do you do with than many nuts unless you know people who want them.
The Dogtown neighborhood in St. Louis is readying itself for the annual huge St. Patrick's Day parade and channel 5 put up this picture from Seamus McDaniel's famous restaurant this morning. Getting ready the message said. What I'd like to know is exactly what the Irish whiskey is being poured into. Is it eggnog? Or Creme de Mint? Or something else?
