Not sure I'd love it so much on nights when I'm home alone, though.

Chili on the stove, and walnuts soaking on the counter.  Tonight I'll also make some pickles and pesto with the leftover fennel bits.

Mmmm. This week's slow cooker red lentil carrot coconut stew turned out awesome.

I don't think Toby would get near as much amusement out of this as I would.

If you didn't already know there was a ton of wood out there, it'd be hard to tell today.

Usually. And lots of clouds when it isn't raining. But occasionally it snows. And with our thaw-freeze-thaw-freeze and our hills, it gets pretty nasty. So, thankfully, it's only occasional.

The neighbor's drive on the left, ours on the right. No shovels have been used; note where the snow is.

FYI, fiber peeps: Black walnut dye does, indeed, have a pronounced funk.  It's not as fecal-smelling as indigo, though.

It's not the wood I'm using, it's the nut husks; they have a slightly musty, slightly rotting-vegetation smell.  It'd be much more pronounced if I'd heated it instead of just decanting for a cold dye.

+Susan Rati Lane +Terran Lane  and any other current or ex-Abqans:  Do you know of any good restaurants in Abq?  A friend is going down there over the weekend for a festival and wants to try some new foods.  He'll be in the Hispanic Center/ downtown area.

Oh my gosh.  Many, many, many.  Depends on what he's in the mood for.  In the Oldtown heart of ABQ, there are:

- Crepe Michel (French; excellent food; great atmosphere; small; call ahead for reservations; $$)
- Antiquity (Steak; romantic; reservations also a good idea; $$$)
- Seasons (Fusion/American; tends to have some southwest-y accents; usually can get in even w/o reservations, except during peak times -- festivals, Saturday nights, etc.; $$-$$$)

But there are a bunch of good choices as you go further out as well.  Depends on what you're looking for.

Our favorite Mexican place is El Norteno (Wyoming Blvd, just north of the I-40 freeway, west side of street, $-$$.)  Our favorite New Mexican place is probably Ortega's (Wyoming, a bit further north, west side of street @ Comanche, $-$$).  A popular place is El Pinto (North Valley -- 4th St heading north out of the city, just before 4th ends; New Mexican; fantastic atmosphere; good food, but a bit touristy; worth calling for reservations if you can -- I've had a hard time getting in.)

And Albuquerque turns out to have a thriving Vietnamese community and culinary scene.  Que Hong is a good choice, IIRC.

A University hangout and a bit of a road food experience is the Frontier Restaurant (Central Ave, just across from the University, near Yale Blvd, IIRC.  Go at breakfast time and have the cinnamon rolls. $)

Between Oldtown and the University, along Central Ave are Artichoke (modern American, $$$), Standard Diner (modern American, $$), and Route 66 Diner (50's diner style; awesome milkshakes and good green chile cheese burgers; $).

A very interesting experience is "Vernon's Hidden Valley Steak House" (4th St, north of the city, but not as far north as El Pinto.)  The schtick is that it's done as a Prohibition era speakeasy, including needing a password to get in the door.  (Call or Easytable for reservations a must!)  Live jazz some nights.  Excellent, excellent food and great atmosphere, but $$$$.  (Seriously -- you can be looking at $100+/head.)

If that's not enough choices, I'm sure we can come up with some others as well.  ;-)

Again, I'd be far more amused by it than Toby would.

Share, +1, and comment if you vote yes to an ability to report harassment.

Women, are you tired of reading weird harassing comments on your posts? Think that the internet is a jerk factory, where if you block one another pops up? Do you wish that the community discouraged harassment? Then you need a harassment reporting tool (not available on all networks).
Men, are you sick of losing women to Pinterest and Facebook? Wish they had a safe place to post publicly? Then you need a harassment reporting tool (not available on Google Plus).
Anyone, do you wish that you could do something more than blocking when a bully or a creep posts something that promotes discrimination, bigotry, racism, hatred, or harassment toward you or others? Then you need a harassment reporting tool (if you want one on your social network you are going to have to fight for it!).

Please, if you want Google Plus to make it possible to report harassment, #voteithot by sharing, +1'ing, and commenting. With enough support, we can make harassment a reportable offense.

I don't think anyone should be harassed, male or female

On the way to class this morning I saw, in a snowy field usually occupied by cows, a parked motorcycle.
