happy humpday

~ Congratulations JFF!
1st Place Photography
winner, in the regional
Reflections competition.
We are all so proud of you!
Great big buckets of LUCK
in the next round.

~ Heal well, KK.
Still so sore from injuries
after being hit by a
bakayaro running a red light.
Big Bachi to that driver, that's what.

~ Oh yes, Grandma was a Redman.
O'bama had an Irish great-great-great
grandfather, Falmouth Kearney,
who had a brother, William.
Say Grandma was related to
Emily Redman, born 1835 in Calais, ME
to James and Susan A. Redman.
She married a William Kearney
in Dedham, MA 1854, & perhaps
you're all related to O'bama. Ha!

~ Watch doggies gone buck wild…

~ Growing up, we would say, “OISHI!”
when food was delicious.
We see “umami” on the Kikkoman commercials
being promoted to mean delicious.
We’ve never heard umami used in that context.
To be accurate::Umami (旨味, Umami) is one of the
five basic tastes sensed by specialize receptor cells
present on the human tongue. The same taste is also
known as xiānwèi in Chinese, literally "Fresh Flavor".
Umami is a Japanese word meaning savory,
a "deliciousness" factor deriving specifically from
detection of the natural amino acid, glutamic acid,
or glutamates common in meats, cheese, broth, stock,
and other protein-heavy foods. The action of umami
receptors explains why foods treated
with (MSG) often taste "heartier".From: Wikipedia

~ and, some legendary power::
"I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead and some come from behind.
But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see.
Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!"
...Dr. Seuss ...R.I.P.
