Next Saturday night (i.e. Sunday morning) TCM will again be showing the block of experimental films I mentioned in this thread. Starts with this documentary at 2:00 am, followed by a series of short films, including classics like Meshes of the Afternoon and then Ken Jacobs’ Orchard Street at 3:50 am. Worth a DVR if you’re not a night owl. Schedule.

Spring comes early here....Nettle Pesto Rissotto w/ Chives and Arugula Rabe

I think I mentioned this before, but a kid from my (and b.'s) high school (long after we were there obviously) has gone on to be quite a basketball player: Nik Stauskas. He's a guard on the second seed University of Michigan squad, and Big Ten player of the year.

When we were in school the basketball team was pitiful (I played varsity!) but now has become something of a powerhouse. Back in the day we were known for hockey, with 3 players who were there during our years (out of ~400 in the entire school) making it to the NHL. Not sure how these things work, and why they suddenly are good at basketball. Maybe you recruit the right coach? Or just get lucky with a great player and then others follow?

In any case, Go Lions. Or something.

You're drinking the wrong kind of milk...

For now, here in the United States, the best way to get milk with a higher-than-average A2 content is to buy it from a dairy that uses A2-dominant cow breeds such as the Jersey, the Guernsey, or the Normande. In Northern California, for example, Sonoma County's Saint Benoit Creamery specifies on its milk labels that it uses "pastured Jersey cows."

The heirloom A2 cow breeds tend to be hardy animals adapted to living on the open range and not producing a ton of milk, but what they do produce is comparatively thicker, creamier, and, many people say, a lot tastier than what you'll typically find at the supermarket.
