Not too many customers on an
overcast, rainy day.

Purple Cauliflower.

Seems crowded, but its not.
Bluefish, Corn and peaches for lunch.
Tomato and onion Salad with more fish
for dinner.

Sure sign of Autumn.


Picked this one up from the library.
A visit to the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament.
Ken Jennings of Jeopardy fame hated it. I'll give it a go and
see if I agree.

Great book. Learned the Gaelic roots of Whyos, Dead Rabbits
Plug-Uglies and Sucker. The book takes you on a tour
from Five Points to the Boston of Whitey Bulger.

Dead Rabbit: Dead Ráibéad ,Dead as an intensifier meaning “very” and Ráibéad in Gaelic was a galoot or big lug.

Whyo :Noble Few in Irish is Uathadh Uais, turned into “Whyo.”

Plug Uglies: Their name came from Bail Oglaigh, Member of Volunteers.

The Patsy Conroys. Their name came from Pairt sa Connradh, Partners in League.

Sucker: sách úr meaning “fresh well-fed fellow” or “fat cat” ready to be fleeced like a ripe Donegal Sheep.


Lots of peppers. Tonight's meal is Stuffed Peppers, made with
Red, Green,Yellow and Orange Peppers.

"Been selling for fifteen years and never heard
a bad word about this item."

Tomatoes are coming down in price,
$2 a pound. Corn still available but getting
smaller. P.E. & D.D. Seafood was back.

Hard at work.

September 6, 2008 - Calm before the Storm

Not much of a crowd. The market crowd
was thin today with Hanna coming.
P.E. & D.D. Seafood wasn't there.
Probably dealing with Hanna.

Not Squeezing is a big thing here.

Pepper Chart. The Scotch Bonnet is super-hot.

No Sun, but still lots of Sunflowers.

Randomness is an important part of
Cryptonomicon, so this is continuing
the concept.
