A Little Bit Of This and That



 Isn't he smiling?



 Does anyone know about Paczki? I just got some today, but never tried them, I think a Polish pastry. This is a Bismark , filed with a smooth filling.











One word short of a complete sentence and the paragraph stopped in its tracks. It had been a hard day and too many words and phrases soared around his room. He grabbed a pen and wrote a few items on his next shopping list. He contemplated a recorder for when those ideas and poems arose and soothed his thoughts while driving. The phone rang and took him over a complete new course of events to think about, a visitor was possibly near. It was his intermittent tenant; he had a short layoff and always used the home. A short string of ideas arrived and took him on a writer’s journey. It was an evening to remember.

  3. Some beautiful photos, especially the Indian art and the colorful balls and ribbons. That sunrise/sunset image is a winner, too.

  8. I enjoyed your bit of this and that today. Never heard of Paczki before but that Bismark looks like a tasty treat. Thanks for stopping by with the tip about when to see the Eagles. I'm going to go back early in the day next time, like at first light, take a chair and sit for a while with a flask of hot chocolate :)

  12. Yes I know about Paczki. This time every year my order book is full of recipes for them. I don't make them because no one has ever asked for them. Maybe I should this year and see how they go.
    Looks like someone has been visiting a museum or an art gallery

  13. I think I've eaten every kind of Polish pastry in existence. Detroit, where I'm from, had a very large Polish population when I was growing up, and there was never a shortage of Polish food.

  14. The dessert looked yummy, Steve...can you send a piece? Never heard of it, but does sort of resemble an eclair.

  17. That museum looks fun. Is the wild and colorful glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly by any chance? I have not heard of the Polish pastry and it's probably a good thing. Pastry is my downfall. Have a great day, Steve!

    1. That is a Chihuly installation and it is huge. After three placements it looked good to the artist. I went over for the initial talk and workshop.
