Once again The Onion confuses everybody by reporting the truth as if it was some sort of joke.

My Fermented Slaw recipe: 

1 large cabbage (washed, cored)
1 large white onion peeled
2 large beets peeled
1 lb carrots well washed, heads removed. 
1 lb daikon radish peeled. 
2 tablespoons kosher salt. 

Shred everything to 1/8th inch thickness with kitchen knife or food processor. Mix well in large bowl. Stuff into clean, 1 gallon pickle jars. (about 2) Cover tightly. Invert jars 3x daily to spread fermentation juices at the bottom. Refrigerate at least one week and enjoy. 

I've got a gallon and a half of this in my refrigerator right now. It's addictive. You can add garlic if all parties in the household agree. Any one household member can veto the garlic. (your deepest innermost self loves the garlic though, ginger too) 

I call it "slaw" instead of kraut because it never lasts long enough to ferment to a full kraut sourness. This is about 2 weeks old and I started with another gallon. It will last another 3-4 weeks tops.

NASA checks in. 
 
Leonard Nimoy's character, Mr. Spock, inspired many at NASA, including scientists, engineers and astronauts. We will take the energy and spirit that Leonard brought to his character as we explore the Moon, Mars and beyond.
RIP Leonard Nimoy

Pretty nifty!
A growing number of food vendors are literally pedaling their wares. From baristas to veggie farmers, many say bikes are a cheaper, greener, more convenient way to launch their mobile food businesses.

I dug this article up when I was looking for the nth varieties of "love" in another conversation here on G-Plus. For all of english's incredible agility as a trade and technical language it's daily use is emotionally stilted. Why aren't we using eros, philia, ludus, agape, pragma, and philautia as words in our daily life? 

These are Greek concepts and words. Are there any words you know of that we could steal from asian or other non-romance languages? I want to hear them. I'm sick of using the dumb phrase "love" when I really want to express a nuanced form of appreciation and/or affection. 
Can six loves known to the Greeks inspire us to move beyond our current addiction to romantic love, which has 94 percent of young people hoping — but often failing — to find a unique soul mate who can satisfy all their loving needs?

+John Poteet​ There are of course many other words as well. The word "mieli" is about having one's mind on something, in a positive sense so that it's like you think it should be, or how you like it.

Ok. Let me make this clear. This guy is a scumbag. He's a person who has worked to deny people like me health care that we desperately need. 

So he had a heart attack, and, of course, had not signed up for even a bronze Obamacare plan. Now he has a GofundMe where he's begging for money. 

There, people who are frankly my moral superiors are giving this guy $5 and $10 donations for the privilege of reminding him why he's a jerk. As near as I can tell most of his donations are coming from liberals. 

Read the comments.

Remember Richard Mack, the guy who defended welfare rancher Cliven Bundy? He's also the founder of The Constitutonal Sherrifs and Peace Officers Assocation. Now he is uninsured, has a stack of healthcare bills and wants you to pay them.

We have examples of people who don't have to work to meet their basic needs: people with inherited wealth. Contrary to the idea that people must be forced to work most of the wealthy find some sort of job to do and proceed to do it. 

Provided with autonomy and education healthy people will find something productive to do rather than go insane.

Introduction
If you just added me to your circles and are wondering why I'm not circling you back right away.... It's because I can't have 4,000 people in my stream. If you're brilliant in comments and don't post I'll still circle you. If I've circled you and you're not much interested in my posts no biggie; leave me out of your stream.

I am a pessimist. If your world-view is unicorns-shitting-rainbows block me now. 

Anybody left? Good, we can get to work because optimists don't seem able to make a roof that doesn't leak or a foundation that sits above the water table instead of under it. Optimists build cruise ships that flop over and sink when holed. Optimists design economic structures that collapse like a house of cards in a slight breeze. 

We have to build a better world than the optimists will let us build. A world that expects that rain falls at inconvenient times and deals with it. A world that deals with climate change and ecological overshoot. A world that deals with people as we find them instead of as we wish them to be.

This is an area of Bidwell Park where people hold weddings, parties and outdoor festivals of various sorts. Parking is extremely limited so if there is a larger event you may want to consider bicycling or car pooling. There is a large lawn area, picnic benches, plenty of shade trees, a botanical trail, cork grove, redwood trees and a wading area in Big Chico Creek. Public bathrooms are adjacent to Cedar Grove lawn and the bridge. Upsides: lots of interesting things to see within a short walk of the parking area. Good shade in the summer. Downsides: Poison oak!! Stay on the trails/paths in wooded areas with underbrush. Limited parking for events like the Endangered Species Faire. Ride your bike if you can.

I actually really enjoy shopping at this particular Trader Joe's. I've been in other TJs locations but this particular store has a great staff plus I run into my friends here. I really love a few of the items I can only get here. In particular I enjoy the Pain Pauline wheat bread and the TJs brand Mediterranean Hummus. Those two items are just better quality than I can get anywhere else. I would also suggest Puttanesca pasta sauce; it's pretty good. Good quality at a great price.

Don't. Just. Don't. A had a bacon cheeseburger $6.69, regular fries $2.99 and regular drink $2.19 for $12.88 all told with tax. The burger was small, expensive, and the guy who wrapped it smashed it. The cheese on the burger had to be the worst cheese I've ever had in my life including soy cheese. The bacon on the burger was miniscule. The onions cut into 1/2 inch squares instead of thin sliced. The order of fries was pretty big but not crisp at all. Served in a brown paper bag with a paper cup for some inexplicable reason. I was one of eight customers in the place at 8 pm on a Saturday night and the service was still surly. The music was too loud and the patio tables where I retreated to try and escape the music were dirty. All eight or ten empty patio tables; dirty. I drove past five good taco joints and a pizza place because I wanted a burger and some clown posted a good review the rat. I will never, ever, set foot in a Five Guys burger place again.

I eat here a few times a year. The food is good and the service is excellent. The atmosphere is warm and friendly like a neighborhood place instead of upscale and artsy which I tire of at sushi places. I always get a chirashi sushi which is always a bit different but generous and very good. I don't even know if it's on the menu; I just ask for it. The people I go with tend to get various salads and rolls which I've tried which are well made and presented. Great place.

I drop by Cyclesport once in a while when I'm searching for a part that I don't want to order online. The staff is always friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Prices on items I've purchased were always good.

My last visit was with a party of 9 relatives. The food was fantastic. The service staff had no problem with our large party and easily handled a few special requests. The beer, of course, was great. This was the first time I've been seated on the patio at the Sierra Nevada taproom and I really enjoyed it. As long as the weather is co-operating this seating option is good enough that a special request or patio reservation might be a great option on a warm afternoon.

Simply the cheapest, fastest way to get a good meal in downtown Chico. You'll get a better sandwich than Subway for less and you'll get it faster.
