Corked wine tastes bad. Smells like dank cardboard.
 
There's nothing more disappointing than opening up a corked wine. Surprisingly it's my first. It's a good thing I have two bottles, the second bottle is amazing!

Growing up in Pakistan listening to Dylan, Young, Led Zeppelin and other contemporaries, a friend introduced me to Sugar Man more than a decade ago. Sadly, I never took the time to know Rodriguez's music then. After seeing the movie, I realize that Rodriguez lived the life I always imagined that Dylan did when I first listened to his music.

Thanks +Naomi Black! Since getting my copy of Pressure Perfect on Friday and I've already been through four recipes - lamb biryani, beef and wild rice soup, potato fennel soup, and pears and figs in mulled wine sauce. Only the lamb biryani was a disappointment, as I misread the instructions.

Honestly, my wife's a better cook so she'll usually cook. It works out better for the both of us. I take over during the weekend and when she has class in the evening. My problem is that I have little patience with recipes and tend to veer off and experiment. Thanks for sharing your recipe, I'll let you know how it turns out. Soups are great for the winter in Chicago.

It's my first time making risotto and my appreciation for the love and dedication (aka constant attention) required to make good risotto has gone up considerably. It's definitely not your run of the mill rice dish. It was supposed to be a side-dish, but has definitely taken over on center court.

I tried to create this, but failed -- event after watching the movie three times in quick succession shortly after it was released. Pen / paper don't do it justice but this site definitely does.

Why is it disappointing?

This is a great visualization of what supplements we perceive to be beneficial vs what supplements have clinical evidence to back their benefits.

I have to agree with Wozniak. This movie, so far, seems like a complete disappointment and a distortion of reality, based on Job's book. It also seems like Ashton Kutcher's is playing the same exact role he depicts on Two and a Half Men. Very disappointing  This is not a movie I intend to watch.

I recently discovered the wine vintage chart at the back of the Zagat. Unlike other vintage charts, this one's simple to use and memorize. If you're ever ordering wine in a restaurant, I'd recommend jotting down a few good vintages. In a good year, even the lower-end wines are likely to be great.

"Waiting for Superman" is must watch if you care about the state of K-12 education in the US. I share some of the general premise --- https://www.facebook.com/notes/ali-pasha/public-sector-unions-teachers-and-gov-walker/10150422083575302

I've donated both money and time in the past, but when I look back I feel disappointed at the impact.

Therefore, I've been thinking a lot about the best ways to give charity. I'e been really thinking through how to prioritize who to give charity to, the most effective ways to give charity, and how much to give.

I have a lot of my own rough thoughts, but I don't feel like I have a fully coherent model yet. If anyone can recommend a site / book that they believe is helpful, I'd be really indebted. Thanks!

Best person to give you this answer is Kishwer Aziz.
Today a beggar's son has the same educations as a rich man's son at a small school in Azam Basti. I was at the school today and a director from the AKU had come to asses the class that will sit for matric exam from the AKU Board. The standard of the AKU Board is highest is Pakistan. So your contribution has gone a long way.

Their best food items aren't on the menu, but are pretty pricey (e.g. hand rolled crispy salmon). If you stay on menu, it's very affordable.

Amazing food. Great value. Decor needs a little uplift.

Their curries are ok. But I crave for their Tom Yum!

Amazing beer selection. Go on Mondays, they have 1/2 off their drafts.
