"from Memphis to New Orleans / in and out of railroad dreams / in scenes / passing by"

Absolutely lovely. Farrar can sometimes be too obtuse for my taste, but the elusive sense of a meaning just beyond our grasp works in this song.

Ben Black is not actually arguing against the creation of cloud standards; he is placing constraints on the where, when, and how of such standards. Also, I would take exception with his repeated statement that "there is no SQL standard". Yes, there are many differences between various implementations with regards to syntax etc. but there is unanimity in the architecture of those implementations (data is stored in rows in a table, each row has a set of columns, etc.) It is this commonality of architecture that allows people to create abstraction layers that hide the difference in syntax.

I'm a sucker for these overly cute play on words. "i've been trying to tell you 'cause I can tell you want the truth now / i've been trying to see you 'cause I can see you are a singular girl"

Hard to take this seriously when the first thing they say is completely wrong. Square-rigged ships can most certainly sail into the wind. It's true that they can't lie as close to the wind as a fore-and-aft rigged ship, but they can tack.There's no way Magellan, Drake etc. could have made it around the world in ships that only sailed with the wind. Getting around Cape Horn from east to west is impossible if you can't sail your ship into the wind.

I think the reason is , under the force of wind, a square shape sail would attain a small degree of FOIL FORM. The wind hitting the leading edge of the square sail would be decelerated along the sail & exit the sail at a lesser force, & hence creating a foil form, I think.

This after-thought of a scene was a total cop out by the writers. Really? Sherlock travels to Pakistan or Azerbaijan or wherever this scene is supposed to take place, and Watson has no idea or simply doesn't come along? And then Sherlock takes on a group of militants, who we can assume are armed with semi-automatic weapons, with nothing but a ceremonial sword - and wins? This lapses into comic book territory all so we, the audience, don't have to feel bad about a beautiful woman dying. They should have left it out.

Props to Deputy Sheriff Stan Lenic! The airport authority guy was so entertainingly befuddled. "But wait, I'm an older white guy in an authority position. Aren't you supposed to automatically just do what I tell you?"

The point is that it was entertaining. Sure he could have any color in the rainbow, but it was funnier because he was white.

Don't mess around, just get the Chile Verde. Your tastebuds will thank me. If you want a real treat, get the Chile Verde in a corn quesadilla. For fans of Tacos Moreno, there is some familial connection between the people that own and operate Taqueria La Playa and Tacos Moreno. The recipes are the same, the food is every bit as good, and the lines are a lot shorter.

Try their Chile Verde. It's made with beef instead of pork. It's good in either tacos or a burrito, but my favorite way is in their "corn quesadilla". This is basically a soft taco that has been lightly fried - into it go the meat, some whole pintos, cheese, and some shredded cabbage. Add their salsa to taste and you'll think you've died and gone to taco heaven. Their is some familial connection between Tacos Moreno and La Hacienda on Laurel Street (across from the Louden Nelson Community Center). The recipes are the same, the food is every bit as good, and the lines are a lot shorter.
