August 19 Link Log

My e-mail is getting just...too...interesting. All week all I've found time to do online have been writing-for-pay and e-mail. But that's a good thing, because I'm not making money in the real world! Categories: Food, Movies, Politics, Zazzle.

Food (Yum) 

Stuffed peppers for any season is a "yum." The toasted wheat germ? Meh. Adds gluten (without the wheat germ this is gluten-free), and a bitter flavor some people love and some hate. You could substitute flaxseed or meal and/or sesame seed or meal, and I'd love these peppers too.

Movies 

I'm still not planning to watch either movie, unless the right person asks me, but Noah Gittell's review, comparing a wannabee blockbuster remake with an obscure documentary to be seen in just one small independent local theatre, is too witty to miss. If NG ever compiles a book, this post belongs in it.

Here's our Amazon link to the classic version of Ben-Hur, which is the one I recommend, although one of my sisters went to a Christian school that actually required her to read the book. (Her review: too many pages. I did read all the pages in Quo Vadis and The Silver Chalice, and for Ben-Hur I think the movie is enough.)

Politics (Election 2016) 

Would you like to help vet Donald Trump's tax returns? Ben Eisenberg would; if interested, you can sign BE's petition here:

Is this petition to Mike Pence a legitimate petition we want to support, or a bogus petition got up to discredit the candidate? I don't know, but I say Governor Pence should look into it.

Zazzle 

If you've ever had a nice sweater ruined when somebody slapped a nasty "my name is" sticker on it, first of all this web site salutes you if you were so kind and gracious you didn't even slap them down a long flight of stairs, and next, this button will probably appeal to you:




And, of course, there had to be one...
