Did you know if you blend some moss with buttermilk, and then paint it on a brick wall very precisely, you can make a stunning green graffiti? There are more examples of ‘green graffitis’ in the slide show, but the moss one is my fave.
Chocolate caramel tart
I can vouch for the deliciousness of this Chocolate tart, with chocolate pastry, caramel filling and ganache topping. People rave.
Gilian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred
In ironic proximity to the chocolate tart, I will recommend Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred, a fitness video email@example.com very kindly shared with me. Both Gene and I did the easy version today, and to our surprise we were both sweaty in 20 minutes. I like it because…is only 20 minutes, but she packs in cardio, strength and a bit of abs. That’s a lot of variety. Also, Michaels explains the moves quite well and really keeps the energy up.
Yet another crafty thing I probably won’t do
But hey, it’s so clever and cute! Using chalkboard paint on mason jars to make reusable labels!
I would like to endorse a classic episode Star Trek, TNG that Gene and I recently rediscovered as we work through all the TNG episodes on Netflix. In an alternate universe the Federation and the Klingon Empire are not allies…but at war, and the Klingons are winning. The production team did a stunning job of presenting an alternate version of the Enterprise as a Battleship…everything is familiar…but wrong. The amount of emotional resonance contained in this episode is amazing because we got to see characters we already know and love under completely novel conditions. I cheered when Denise Crosby’s character Tasha Yar was killed off early in the 2nd season. But her reprise of her role as a parallel universe Tasha was just touching and perfect.
