I hope that's a photo of a muffin with MAINE blueberries !!!

Yes, I can tell the difference in taste, not just the size; if you mush up a cup of Maine blueberries, and mush up New Jersey blueberries, I can distinguish them, blindfolded.

All blueberries are great, but have subtle differences; love 'em all !

Like childhood meatloaf, or apple variety favorites: it's what we have "cultivated" a taste for over the years.

A visit to the West Coast, many years ago, educated me to local variances: I grew up in SE Massachusetts, so Dunkin Donuts is now a coffee "gene" I shall probably carry to the grave.

The "Seattle" coffee left me nonplussed.

(For the record, their coffee is probably much better; I'm a floundering philistine, in oh-so-many things...)

I can't help but add a final observation: it's been backed up by science, that West Coast seafood tends to be very mild, almost flavorless, compared to East Coast. The Northeast coast has colder water, and higher salinity.

A memo from groundhogs, everywhere:

To those who don't like me, jus' 'cause I'm wandering around the ground:

Hey, just b'cuz I got brown hair, and buck teeth, that's no reason to label me "commercial"; I stand up (sort of) for my rodent heritage.

So what, if I'm dentally challenged, and have "hog" as part of my name ?!?

Jo, i'm glad you clarified the hardiness of my trailing rosemary! I will still bring it, but it will stay in a sunny window in our CT condo next year when we go to FL. My son has been watering several coleus for me that we left there. They seem fine, and he seems to enjoy keeping them going. I told him it was no big deal if we lose them, as they would have died in NH, but he enjoys that kind of challenge. 🍀

Great show! We also like Call the Midwife, another wartime British series, but it only comes on sporadically. Foyles War is another really good British wartime detective series. Can you tell we love the British series? I really look forward to Downton every week. I'm afraid it just won't be the same after Lady Violet dies. Maggie Smith is awesome!

Prime Suspect series with Helen Miren too.I would need to go to Netflix to find all the Brit series I watched.
There was a revival of Upstairs Downstairs with almost the original cast. I rented the first disc and sent back the rest It was awful.

The age group who buy here dictate the taste. Thats why not a day goes by that there isnt an incendiary of some kind on a TV show or a Zombie ( ho-hum) The people who produce this krap aim at the Lowest Common De hence referred to as LCD.denominator.

The Brits engage our brains in their subtext. There is a dud from them from time to time but not many.
Downton Abby is written by Julian Fellows who acts and writes.He has an ancestral connection to Highclear Hall where the program is filmed.His family story is interwoven in the series.
I doubt an American would do that unless it was Harper Lee who wrote"ToKill a Mockingbird" a classic.

I am not usually caught up in the background details of a program but DA just fascinates me.
Ages ago I read "The Devil Drives" the life of Sir Richard Burton.Its about the race to discover the source of the Nile. The age of exploration in England was huge.Greystoke legand and etc.Among the explorers was Earl Carnarvon who lived in Highclere castle. He was an Egyptologist and discovered King Tuts tomb,alas he died befor he could return to England.
Sorry it this is so long but Fellows is related to Carnovan way back.Some of the story line in DA is from his family past.
CBS Sunday morning did 2 features of DA and Fellows that mentioned the connection. He is quite a romantic writer.He wrote Titanic.

Neighbor's goats and barn burned down a few days ago. My DH and some friends are helping with the cleanup. Seems something happened to the heat bulbs (lamps) suspended above. Maybe that one of them burst and fell onto the dry straw. Very distressing since 30 lost goats made up a good deal of his income.

I do love that brug. I was given 4 cuttings this year. I bought cuttings in the past that rotted and did nothing. These 4 are going gangbusters!! Great to know that one doesn't need to overwinter the whole plant because good healthy cuttings taken from the right place will put on next year's show.


I'm sure the TLC that those broken plants will be given will do the trick.

Marilyn, I think anyone would have been just as upset. The situation you are in is as tough as they get, and I'm sure you are very exhausted. It's not a bad thing for the CEO to know how upsetting it is to family to see their loved one in restraints in a hallway for everyone to see. I do not think you were a whiner at all. Would the CEO have liked to experience what you did? It is crucial that there be some feedback to the people at the top because people in your Mom's condition cannot fight these battles for themselves. I understand that staffing is always a problem, but dignity should not be the price the residents and their families are made to pay. Sending you hugs and hoping things are easier during your next visit!

My car is a Saturn because there was no negotiating when you bought a car, and it was American made. Being a woman by myself - trying to buy a car is a nightmare! Trying to be bad cop and good cop just makes me look schiphrenic

One time when I went car shopping the salesman wanted to show me all the little amenities inside the car and didn't even say anything about the engine or the warranty. Guess women don't need to worry about little things like icky motors.

My last two cars I bought new because of the problems with buying a used car. The Dodge Omni I sold with 135k miles on it and it was still running 3 years later when I got sued over an accident it had had in California. This car needs tires and I thought the last set would be the last but it runs really well. and thanks to a plastic body - doesn't look to bad after all these years. I would buy another Saturn - if they still made them.

One warning about all-wheel drive...if you have a problem wirh one tire, you have to replace all 4, and you have to rotate and balance the tires very frequently. Expensive. I won't get it again. They don't mention that until you have already bought it.

Strongly disagree about Twitter, Louise. For me, WAY more useful than any of the others. Have never been big on FB. 95% of it, at least, is total nonsense.

Yeah, on FB I have to block so many people that it hardly pays. I am more into the 'liked' pages than the 'friends'.

We loved Pinewood Derby too. But there are more projects ahead. In our house Lego Mindstorms competitions for First, Inc. were next.

Good news about Marilyn's Mom!

Happy Birthday little Domenic! We all remember when you were born. Maggie Smith said it best on 60 minutes about age making life go so fast. She said it seems like she's having breakfast every 30 minutes. 😄 I just love that line.

Happy Birthday Dom!

Gravity Glue was cool to see.

It's the unusual little images and ideas that keep me hooked, after, of course, the nice people.

Thanks for asking about my kids! They're still my favorite subject.

I was cooking and shopping this weekend while DD 2 was home. Umass Lowell played hockey with Umass Amherst so both my students at those schools went to see. UML is on a big infectious success binge in all areas, not just hockey.

DD1 said her month in Guadalahara for winter term was "the best year of my life." Two days after she returned, her boyfriend revealed he found someone else. DD 2 is still dating a local young man so she visits frequently.

All three kids are in love with their schools and totally thriving. What's interesting is that as they are learning that they are all excellent students after all, they are starting to think grander thoughts.

DD1 realizes she has to do something with her Spanish major, maybe immigration law if not teaching Spanish or ESL after a few years abroad. Although she was a top student in a nationally competitive high school, she is finding college work at Oberlin to be mind-bending.

DD2 thinks every single science problem is interesting. She wants to do biological research. She's justifying her Dean's scholarship at Amherst with A's or better, and is officially now a sophomore from her AP credits. We had a talk this weekend about looking up the faculty bios so she might think whose work she likes in order to hang around them. It was a great decision to go to school there and not to try to go to a fancier place where she'd be a small fish. High school was a bit too competitive for her to reveal her best work. I've known all along that she had it in her and will treasure many moments when this quiet little girl would suddenly get an amazing insight. She's not quiet now.

DS has always been both bored by school work, and also he struggled to keep up with conventional learning basics. Once a school teacher discovered his brilliant side it was usually all over in a class, because they didn't also appreciate his struggles. None of that is happening in college. He is allowed to study as he sees fit. Although his grades have been good enough to consider transferring to a higher ranked college, there is no reason to rock the boat. He really likes his college and he likes engineering, especially their design contests which he has been able to win more than once. If you want to find his first semester projects--a windmill, a bridge and an electric motor on Facebook just send me a D-mail. The motor has been sent to India as an example to inspire high school students. We just hope he can keep applying himself as he has.

Something has settled in my chest. Coughing is the only symptom. Will be interesting to see what the morning brings.

Friend of mine had a cough for weeks that wouldn't go away, a different doc admitted that she was probably first misdiagnosed and she had whopping cough but nothing they could do for her so late so they said that she just had to wait for it to go away on it's own
