Okra Yogurt

Introduction It's time for okra with yogurt, folks. Yep! A recipe. A real one. With okra! But first! No, I'm not going to insert a video of Danny Kaye as The Inspector General. I did that once before and it's old now. So then what? How should boredom be achieved? Hmm. I know!…

2019 – The Decline of Liberalism

And so we come to the end of 2019. A tumultuous year, in so many ways, in so many parts of the world, and everywhere the nails are being hammered into the coffin containing liberalism. We've become prim, prudish school marms, rapping people over the knuckles for not behaving in the way we…

Punjabi in England – Planes, Trains, No Automobiles in London

I know you've probably forgotten everything I've written so far about this fateful tryst with destiny, the trip to London, England, fraught as it was with the aggregation of aggravations and the curious concatenation of circumstances that led to the very stormy emotions running through my sugar soaked veins. That was a longish…

22 years an Immigrant

It's actually, 19 years a Canuck. But then, 22 rolls off the tongue smoothly and has so many possibilities. You can say two two twennytoo one score and two ( or 2) 2 times 10 plus 2 ( if mathematically inclined) Now then, what the hell am I talking about? I answer that…

Punjabi in Paris – Loitering around the Loire Valley

Day 8 Day 8 of the French Campaign saw us leave Paris and explore the land beyond the city borders; specifically, the Loire Valley. The Loire river (riviere, if French), rises in the south and flows through Orleans; the real, old one, not the new one in America. You know, the one where…
