How sweet is that? Not saccharine, that’s for sure.

Recipe for butter finger sandwiches:

1 stick frozen butter (sweet, if possible)
6 tbsp liquid peanut butter
6 tbsp apple butter
Warm sharp knife.
1/4 c. flour (whole wheat works well)
2 tbsp brown sugar

Preparation: Warm a sharp knife for cutting the butter. If your peanut butter is not easily spreadable when refrigerated, separate out 5 tbsp of it and mix in 1/2 tbsp peanut oil and 1/2 tbsp cream, then rechill. Sift the flour and sugar together in a small bowl.

  • Flour hands and a cutting board with the flour mixture.
  • Slice frozen butter into millimeter-thick squares with the knife, and place on the board.
  • Alternately spread peanut butter and apple butter on the upturned faces of the butter slices (with a cold knife).
  • Flip each peanut-buttered butter slice onto the neighboring apple-buttered butter slice. Place the resulting sandwiches on a sugared serving plate.
  • Refrigerate until ready to eat.

Bon appetit!   Makes ~50 finger sandwiches (serves 10).

Spring lawn parties

250 same-sex marriage license were handed out b/t midnight and 1am this morning at Cambridge City Hall, after an afternoon-long party in front of the city hall. Everyone looks beautiful when they beam! And there were a lot of beaming faces there. I walked back home just as a line of policemen were walking back to the Central Sq station; someone was taking a photo of the passing line, and her friend started singing the “one of these things is not like the others…” theme song.

All I have to say is, if I were getting on in years, there could hardly be a better old age home than the one across the street from that city hall. Those gentlemen and women have front row seats to everything, and they seem awfully happy.

Mars speaks! That super-hi-res photo rocks my entire week. Look at those sand waves… and the sedimentation layers from ancient waters@! As Struppi would say, “Waugh!” …And keep your eyes peeled for some of the advantages of having real live waters here on Earth — a Lobster Zone machine coming soon to a resto near you.

Crowning of the Rev. Moon as King of Peace by our National Reps… and Disney not letting Miramax release Moore’s new con-Bush film. I wonder if they have enough stake in the IP of the movie to keep it from release for six months!

The True Story of a Boy and His Backyard Nuclear Reactor...

Not everyone who dreams of greatness sets up a
minor nuclear chain reaction before graduating high school… in his
relative’s backyard, with home-grown gear… manages not to tell anyone
about it for a year… and, after said back yard is turned into a Superfund cleanup site, gets away with a slap on the wrist.

Steve MannThad Starner… both long gone, off on their own personal quests.  Why don’t any of the orbiting Media-Lab advisors have any gear on them? Neither the people currently in the Wearables Lab, not even Sandy Pentland or Neal Gershenfeld, keep on them more than the universal wristwatch and maybe a set of contact lenses. SAY WHAT???
