I made osso buco with beef shank instead of veal yesterday--not as tender and delicate tasting as veal, but excellent nonetheless. We both made yummy-drooling noises while eating ;-) I like this even better than my pot roast or beef [more]

I've been reading more than a few obits for Leonard Nimoy. I enjoyed this eulogy for Spock as portrayed by Nimoy from one of the statisticians at Nate Silver's fivethirtyeight.com:

Have y'all experienced the "controversy of the dress"? It is seen by some as backa nd blue, others as white and gold. A color perception scientist says it's a great example of color-based optical illusion.

Re: Why Leonard Bernstein was my hero

Bolero is one of the pieces of music that in large part is very repetitive, but does not engage my usual detestation of repetitive sounds.

Why Leonard Bernstein was my hero

Leonard Bernstein's music lectures--with piano and orchestra--were shown on public TV in the 50s and 60s and made a huge impression on me. If I'd been asked then who was my hero, it might've been him. Not that I remembered much--it was often over my [more]
