With English, Spanish and a little Portuguese under my belt, perhaps I'm able to speak to almost as many people as Chinese speakers can.
Such a cool way to see the world of languages!  It is unbelievable that there are over 6,000 languages that don't make it into this chart. Is it time to learn a little Mandarin???

Thanks to +Paul Simbeck-Hampson  for the find!
 
"Today’s graphic takes the world’s 23 most popular languages, and then gives you a visual sense of how many people actually speak those languages overall, and where geographically those languages are spoken. The more a language is spoken, the more space it gets in the visual.

As you look through Lopéz’s visual, you’ll want to keep one thing in mind: Although the 23 languages visualized above are collectively spoken by 4.1 billion people, there are at least another 6700 known languages alive in the world today. [...]"

Pulled Barbecue Chicken Sliders with Cole Slaw & Potato Salad
This was tonight's meal from +Blue Apron​. My picky son was not impressed, but Mom and I loved it. One of the fringe benefits of cooking these meals has been learning from the recipe cards when to execute each step of meal prep so that there is no wasted time. None of these meals have taken more than an hour from prep to serve.

Chinese 5-Spice Meatballs with Jasmine Rice and Snowpeas - and Cat
No, no cats were included my +Blue Apron ingredients. My family and I are having so much fun with our surprise culinary experiences. It is so nice to have fresh groceries (nothing frozen, canned or packaged) appear on my doorstep, complete with gorgeous, large recipe cards and helpful tips. So nice to not have to plan and shop for dinner. The food so far has been delicious.

Crystal was not that impressed, but the rest of us enjoyed it.

Gaiman's American Gods coming to Starz!
How exciting! This novel was meant to be captured on film - fantastical characters, tons of action, clever dialogue. Wonder how long it will take before it arrives on Netflix, Amazon Prime or Hulu? 
Starz has officially picked up Neil Gaiman's 'American Gods' to series.

The difference between cats and dogs - truth. ☺

Thanks to +Priya Chandra​ for the laugh today.

Up next on my reading list -Epitaph by Mary Doria Russell
MDR is my favorite living author. Her portrait of Doc Holliday will be etched in my mind forever. Her newest novel will focus more in depth on the Gunfight at the OK Corral. Although this is her second foray into the western genre, don't assume that this is a western novel. MDR has written books about space colonization (The Sparrow is one of the best books I've ever read), the political mistakes following WWI in the Middle East, the role of the Catholic church in saving Jews in WWII. Her novels are never about plot, but all about character development and the motivations behind people's actions. She is the anti-Dan Brown. When you finish reading her books you will know her characters as living, breathing, complicated beings. I can't wait to learn more about the Earps, their wives/lovers, and enemies. I'm sure I will never look at the legend of Tombstone in the same way again..

Portugal has just leapfrogged a few other countries on my "Must-Visit" list.
Love this post from my friend's blog. This one is about the wonderful - and inexpensive - wines of Portugal. To pair with your Portuguese wine, Stephanie even includes a recipe for her favorite meal from her Portuguese honeymoon. Bom Apetite!

#oenophilia    #winetasting
As you must know by now, I love Portugal. What's not to love, with the sights, culinary delights and, of course, all of the undiscovered wine? I had to bring it to life for my pals at a recent Wine Tribe tasting. Luckily, I was aided by Fatima Hemmons. Tina, as everyone calls her, ...

Seared Salmon & Long Beans with Teriyaki Udon Noodles & Yu Choy
Another incredible meal that I cooked with help from +Blue Apron. These ingredients were on my doorstep when I got home from work today. Perfectly cold and fresh - NOT frozen - salmon fillets that were skinned, cut and ready to cook. Fresh vegetables that just needed to be washed and cut. All the sauces and garnishes. The best Udon noodles I have ever eaten. Not the processed, gross, chemical-smelling noodles you get in those microwaveable meals. These were doughy, chewy, and so fresh. Big hit with the whole family.

Sing it with me - Yesterday, what a soothing song to play..
Cannot imagine a time when you might need the beauty and serenity of this wonderful song more.  Love this story!

Police officer going beyond the call of duty. Service. Respect. Honor.
Love this story. Most police officers are good public servants. Unfortunately, the bad apples have been stealing the headlines these days. I wish we heard more stories like this and that other officers would be inspired to do better when they hear them.

The freshest, most delicious Chinese food I have ever eaten. We eat here at least once a week. Try the fried fish (with sauce or with jalapeños and garlic); the mustard greens w' tofu; the sesame cakes; the fried pork chops with jalapeños; the Chinese broccoli; any of the soups. My advice is to look at the food people are ordering around you and ask for whatever looks good. Get outside of your comfort zone and be amazed!

My son has become a different person since participating in Sun Lee Taekwondo. He is more disciplined both at home and at school. The after school program is fantastic and my son usually comes home with his homework completed. The emphasis that the school places on personal responsibility, self-control, respect of parents/elders is really making a difference in my son. Master Jason and the other instructors treat you like family and you can tell that they truly care for their students and want them to succeed in life. I highly recommend Sun Lee.

Dr. Harrington is fantastic with children. The staff is very friendly and they offer lots of nice services - free Starbucks coffee while you wait, other concierge services. However, if you need to watch your finances, be warned that their accounting office is unorganized at best and fraudulent at worst. Get quotes and pre-determination in writing before committing to treatment. The cost their business manager estimated I would have out-of-pocket after insurance was only 40% of the cost that I ended up being charged. I had to pay more than double their original quote. I realize that navigating the complexities of insurance is not easy, but that is the business manager's job. Not being able to provide estimates within +/- 15% should be unacceptable. The runaround played between their accounting office and my insurance company cost me a very unwelcome financial hit at the end of the year.
