May 27, 2013

Decoration Day from the Civil War was the Genesis of Memorial Day.

Yesterday, the Forest Hills Greenmarket had Fish from the Pura Vida Boat. Picked up some Mako Shark and Swordfish. Grilled it with Olive Oil and Oregano and Pepper.

"Radiches" !

Picked up this Biography of Cardinal Richelieu. However, I can't get the Monty Python sketch out of my mind:

Counsel: Er, you are Cardinal Armand du Piessis de Richelieu, First Minister of Louis XIII?

Cardinal: Oui.

Counsel: Cardinal, would it be fair to say that you not only built up the centralized monarchy in France but also perpetuated the religious schism in Europe?

Cardinal: (modestly) That's what they say.

Counsel: Did you persecute the Huguenots?

Cardinal: Oui.

Counsel: And did you take even sterner measures against the great Catholic nobles who made common cause with foreign foes in defence of their feudal independence?

Cardinal: I sure did that thing.

I had 20% off Barnes and Noble coupons and this one was too good to pass up. Great thing about re-issues is Bonus tracks.

All over town are the new Bicycle racks. This one in front of Barnes and Noble.

P.E. and D.D. Seafood for fresh tuna. Grilled with Olive Oil, Pepper and Oregano. Greek Style, so I got a little Feta Cheese.
