Rushdie 7/24/21

whatever it is that he wrote, the interesting thing is that the book is actually better known now because of those who called for him to be killed.  

Credit Card Fraud 7/22/21

The college had a very simple solution.  They towed.  There was plenty of warning with signs, and in orientation programs, and their cars were towed at their own expense.  This might sound harsh, but the reality is that we only had to tow cars maybe two or three times every year.  Once a car was towed, the students would spread the word, complain to their fellow students about their car being towed and the cost of its return.  Once the word spread, nobody would park in the faculty parking lot for the rest of the year.

Food Conundrum 7/18/21

Such an odd period of time for me. Although I enjoy cooking (which is why I’m now a Pampered Chef Consultant; search for me on Facebook with Bleil Style Pampered Chef Consulting), historically my cooking has not always been consistent. I guess I started off fine many years ago when I was living in Cincinnati, but it’s easy to fall into bad and very simple (albeit expensive) habits. For too long it’s been too much pizza, and too much fast food. I had a mantra at one, based on Monty Python. Waiting at the drive through, I would chant (in an appropriate accent), “four is the counting of the Enchiritos, and the counting of the Enchiritos shall be four. Five shall I not eat, nor eat me three excepting that I then proceed to four. Six is right out!”
