My mom use to make something similar to this minus the jalapenos. Looks better with them.
Spicy deviled jam, made with ham, celery, green onions, and pickled jalapeños.

"The second is that Vonnegut’s delivery matters as much as his ideas. His timing is perfect.  His language is concrete and unexpected. He’s showing you the simplicity that underlies apparent complexity – that’s what data are so good at doing. But he’s just as concerned with making sure you’re paying attention — since no one is persuaded by something they don’t remember."
The famous author plots out the three most compelling story arcs.

I feel the same way about the move

"For the past eight years, The Colbert Report has been like nothing else on television. The Report and Colbert’s on-air persona (which the media has collectively decided to call “Stephen Colbert” in quotation marks) are a specific spoof of right-wing cable news, yet the show’s satire manages to be as all-encompassing as The Simpsons in its heyday. Colbert and his staff take on media, politics, celebrity, and anything else relevant to how we live life in modern-day America. The Late Show With Stephen Colbert will be a good talk show. It may be the best talk show on television. But at best, it will be just another talk show."
When Stephen Colbert takes over CBS’ ;Late Show next year, he joins a grand tradition of innovative comedians hosting talk shows, a tradition that stretches back from Steve Allen and Ernie Kovacs through Johnny Carson and Colbert’s predecessor, David Letterman. But Colbert will also become part

On this day 40 years ago Benny and the Jets topped the singles chart in the US. It also reached #15 on the R&B charts. Still remains my favorite Elton John song.

Netlix time for me. The reviews are mixed but looks like my type of movie.

I watched this documentary last night and while I am still catching up on movies released last year this is  my favorite movie of 2013 so far. Watching it brought out all the same emotions that listening to great music does. If you are any type of music fan at all I highly recommend this.

Watched it the other day with Mrs. Geek. Enlightening. Excellent music.

Interesting article about how stadiums are upgrading the WiFi support to enhance the experience of going to a live sporting event. However, it still doesn't solve the problem of all the downtime at a NFL event due to all the TV timeouts and such. Hate to say it but I prefer to sit at home and watch the games on my big screen these days. 
Younger fans are leaving stadiums when they can't get connected, so sports teams are finally embracing technology as a way to improve the fan experience and increase the team’s bottom line.

We are probably in the minority but I agree with you regarding instant replay in baseball. .

"According to a report in Dutch News, Heijmans wants to expand the project but has not yet secured any further contracts. There's no news yet on how the paint holds up against wear and tear—the glow lasts up to eight hours once powered throughout the day, but a patchy inconsistent strip would not pave the way as effectively as energy-guzzling street lights."
They look beautiful, but they could also save a lot on streetlight power.

We already use this, but it's just a different chemical that glows only when hit with UV (headlights go into the UV spectrum). We think of it as a "reflector" but actually it's a chemical reaction.

Yet another Endgadget story that is long on twinking emotions and very short on facts.

A.J. Pollock homered and Mark Trumbo drove in two, but a late rally by the #Dbacks ' fell short.

Best soul food in Phoenix. The place is always crowded but don't let that scare you away. It is worth the wait.

Classic place to eat in Phoenix. The service is superb, the atmosphere is 60's style kitschy , and the food is consistently great.

It's a good sports bar. Especially if you are downtown for a Suns or Dback game but the food has a lot to be desired as does the service at times.

They have very good subs and the pizza is good but pricey.
