"What a waste it is to lose one's mind. Or not to have a mind is being very wasteful. How true that is." J. Danforth Quayle

Royal Reflections

Remember what punishments befell us in this world when we ourselves did not cherish learning nor transmit it to other men. - Ælfred the Great.

I wonder if I am alone in the hope that the next King of England chooses a regnal name other than William or Richard; George or Edward. Personally, I'd like to see a selection from the pre-Plantagenet House of Wessex. I think the world is ready for another Æthelred.

Proper Mental Hygiene

I was once thrown out of a mental hospital for depressing the other patients. - Oscar Levant

Along with fecal material, my head is full of trivial thoughts. Sometimes it is a simple thought I can deal with by Facebook post. Other times it results in a full blown blog post at my Food Blog - Cooking in Theory and Practice. (Yes, I am getting back to it. Really. I made a New Year's Resolution . . .)

This is a companion Blog, not limited to food related topics. Rather, it is more of a mental enema. Proper mental hygiene requires regular flossing to prevent cranial gingivitis, aka Exploding Head Syndrome (EHS).

C'mon along for the ride.
