Not your father’s frozens Retailers report increased sales of more innovative frozen offerings. Julie Gallagher | Mar 17, 2017 Young shoppers have shown a proclivity for fresh and premium fare, but many are also responding to frozen foods touting global flavors, gourmet ingredients and clean labels, retailers said. “Millennials have been a tricky audience for frozen due to a penchant for fresh, less- processed foods, even more so than previous generations who had a kinder association with frozen foods and grew up using them more,” said Jennifer Goodrich, senior analyst…

An Old Keeper’s tale on a February Dusk He placed the unflattering ‘silver’ platter of insistent tea and the unmistakable leri biscoot atop the moth-eaten table. Beside me, my brother looked uneasily at the lime painted walls of the concrete shack; no doubt, his mind enthusiastically wondering to the Gangajaal waiting impatiently to cleanse us a few blocks down the road. The room had meager furnishing, with some clothes hanging off a possibly rickety aalna , a shabby clock on the wall above the fireplace, some plastic stools, and a…

A Cat Called Chicken & The Play-Off Surge

This thread has arisen due to a unique set of circumstances and will probably only make sense to Shrimpers In Exile who go through strange superstitious rituals in support of our team back home. Yesterday afternoon at approx. 4.25pm Greenwich Mean Time, I realised that I just had enough time to sit down and follow the denouement to our game via Jeff Stelling and co.’s updates. Usually, if I turn on there and we’re winning, I stay with it so as not to upset The Gods of Football and jinx…

Surely you joust?

I guess the big question is, how was Medieval Times? I almost wish it was terrible so I could’ve called it a knightmare, but that would’ve been a massive disservice to an absurdly fun and wholesome experience. My usual M.O. is to pump the gas on cynicism, but I figured with something like Medieval Times there was no point. I was actively looking to have a great time at nobody’s expense. I headed there with such an expectation of excitement that if it’d somehow literally rained on us in the…

Here’s a before the incoming storm. I just moved the truck to this position so Ken Hill can bring a half ton of pellets. And this is exactly the way it looks out there. The sun is shining and it is in the high teens/low twenties. The sky is the blue-blue of a beautiful day. Birds are actually chirping as they dive bomb the pot of seed on the steps. A very tiny red squirrel was helping him or herself to a snack on the top step this morning. I…

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 08:21 UTC Last week, Chris Kresser wrote a great article discussing the emerging—and likely causative— link between poor gut health and childhood misbehavior . He explained potential mechanisms for the association, as well as solutions to counter it. But as any parent knows, getting a picky child to adopt your arsenal of perfect gut-supporting foods and supplements isn’t always easy. Not every kid immersed in the righteous anger of the terrible twos will stop what he’s doing to drink sauerkraut juice, nibble on kimchi, take resistant…

Boy, was I ever ready! The weather continues to be crazy ups and downs. Let’s see, I need to go back to a week ago Saturday.

The Hundred-Year Language

April 2003 (This essay is derived from a keynote talk at PyCon 2003.) It’s hard to predict what life will be like in a hundred years. There are only a few things we can say with certainty. We know that everyone will drive flying cars, that zoning laws will be relaxed to allow buildings hundreds of stories tall, that it will be dark most of the time, and that women will all be trained in the martial arts. Here I want to zoom in on one detail of this picture….
