Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Well, bummer

Just got a CNN breaking news alert saying that Julia Child passed away. We never really watched her show when I was growing up, although we did see enough of it to be able to do our own silly parodies of her speaking and kitchen habits. And who can forget Dan Aykroyd's "always save the liver" sketch on SNL?

But she really was an influential force in American cooking, urging people on from the mundane, creamed beans and weenies in aspic sort of stuff you might find in Lileks' Regrettable Food book. She was an original, and it's sad to see her go. Her shows and recipes can still be viewed over on the PBS website, though, so Bon Appetit!
