  1. Climate change

      Shots fired!   I'll consider giving my comment some thought while I lay sipping my frosty drink on the Caribbean beach in Turks and Caicos where I'm heading to right now for some much needed sun and R and R.   Please excuse me I'm at the airport, I have a Boeing 777 to catch leaving in 30 minutes. Buh Bye.    I'll leave you and jeremy2 with another one of my pics from Antarctica.   Little known fact, there's volcanoes on Antarctica.

    Interesting discussion about examining the relationship between climate change and extreme weather by doing  rapid attribution studies.     
  4. What are you cooking today?

    Sannerl, your recipe looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing it.   Here's a Hong Kong style oxtail recipe I've made before and is really good. I still use her cooking method no matter what recipe I use for oxtails. In this recipe, she soaks them in cold h20 for an hour  then the the cook quickly boils the oxtails, pour the water off and I repeat the boil again and drain. This process actually helps clarify the stew/soup by removing blood and impurities. After I boil and rinse twice, I pat them dry with paper towel then Iightly braise the oxtails in oil to start the recipe. Heres the recipe: Oxtail Soup, Hong Kong Style Borscht

  6. Stay away from Companisto

    What inspired you to invest in Companisto?   Just wait, there will be someone from a Baltic country to soon come along with some suggestions on investments and businesses. Stay tuned.    How do we know you're not one of their competitors just trying to trash their business?

    This is a video  about a deadly twister, the widest that's ever been recorded in the U.S. It hit the state of Oklahoma leaving in it's wake destruction and grief.

  11. What are you cooking today?

    I made oxtail stew to freeze for a surprise dinner for a special person that I won't have time to make later (since takes 6 hours) because I have plans and had a small portion to sample for dinner. It was delicious! For dessert, a couple pieces of Belgian chocolate that I gave myself for Christmas.   Here's the recipe I used to adapt my version of oxtail stew.  I added a small amount of cubed white potatoes. No red wine, flour, or leeks were used and I cooked mine on the stovetop instead of oven.
