Good and Tasty news!
Right now, I’m searching to understand possibilities for the “decent” meals of “men” my mother (I’ll be 61 on Friday) wants me to “eat” exclusively, and this post is pointing me in a “decent” direction! –thank you for posting this… When “decent” request entered my mind, first thing I thought of was “Marnie” of course!
I’m going to be real with you; Marnie disappointed me. When I found out about it, I saw that Hitchcock directed Sean Connery, well I had to see it. I’m still glad I saw it so now I know what it is, but if I had actually had to pay money for it I probably wouldn’t feel that way. Adding to that frustration is that I really think this could have been a much better movie, maybe even a great one.
Marnie (Tippi Hedron) is a thief (or klepto, whichever you want to go with). She has just stolen money from her employer and is bringing it to her mother (Louise Latham). She dies her hair to change her appearance, and swaps out her ID for another one from her stash. She gets to her mother’s house and sees red flowers that her mother has and freaks out. She changes…

What? “Normal” marital relations? Bad taste in my mouth! (Says this woman who was raped at age 15 and became pregnant from that rape in 1969 and had a third trimester abortion in 1970, a needed abortion –wouldn’t be “Moxie Supper” without it!
Eat it all! Moxie Supper is known to indulge!!! (When this little spitfire is not eating healthy [which I do most of the time so that I can be a perfectly wholesome treat])
We keep unsolicited phone calls in which the answering machine means to say: “call” but instead says: “from out of area –toll-free “kale”… Not sure how that variety compares with “toll kale”
My goodness! –what a rat! –more related to guinea pigs, the blog author has so kindly informed me!

A short animated video about the largest rodent that ever lived, Josephoartigasia monesi, also known as the Giant Pacarana. A fossil skull discovered in Uruguay belonged to a rodent, which researchers estimate weighed up to 1 tonne (1000kg)! Andrés Rinderknecht and R. Ernesto Blanco named the new species “monesi” in honor of the famous paleontologist, Alvaro Mones.
The largest rodent alive today is the capybara, which can weigh over 60kg, much smaller than its extinct cousin.
The original article describing J. monesi can be read here.
The skull is housed in Montevideo, Uruguay in the Museum of Natural History and Anthropology.
Much thanks to Dr. Blanco and Dr. Rinderknecht for their amazing discovery! And thank you to Luisa for her Spanish translation…I owe you one!
From daily The Independent in Britain:
Biggest ever rodent was…

Seems right! –and very tasty indeed!
WASHINGTON (AP) — Key civil rights areas around the nation would get $50 million for restoration under President Barack Obama‘s budget as preparation for the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act begins.
The president’s budget includes money for the national historical trail from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, which commemorates in part the “Bloody Sunday” attack by police on civil rights demonstrators. Their march was portrayed in the Oscar-nominated film “Selma.”
The attack helped boost the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which banned the use of literacy tests, added federal oversight for minority voters and allowed federal prosecutors to investigate the use of poll taxes in state and local elections. The White House said part of the money for the Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail would be for museum collections, oral histories and online access to collections.
Rep. Terri Sewell, D-Ala., said she was pleased Obama’s budget “includes a…
