I don't know why, but some time last year, Wheat Thins started coming with tons of extra salt on them. The first time I encountered it, I thought it was just a bad box. But it's been consistent every time since then, across various varieties (except the low-salt kind). Nabisco, stop it! It's way too much salt! You're killing us. You took out the trans fats a few years ago, which was fine. The crackers got harder then, but that's a minor deal. But seriously, cut back on the salt!
Just around the other side of the hill Nebet Tepe from our house, about 5 minutes' walk, I came across an Armenian area with a church, a couple of schools, and an Armenian holocaust memorial. The church is called St. George Armenian Church (in Bulgarian: Арменската църква "Св. Георги", Пловдив), or St. Kevork as St. George is rendered in Armenian. First a view of the church from part way down Nebet Tepe: This is the church up close: The church interior: A water tap and basin on the side of the church that reads 1818 on the right and ١٢٣٣ (1233) on the left in Eastern Arabic numbers, where A.H. 1233 in the Islamic calendar is the same as A.D. 1818 in the Christian calendar. A reminder that Bulgaria was ruled by the Ottomans at the time this was built, and Turkish was written using the Arabic alphabet until they switched to the Latin alphabet in (A.D.!) 1929. A neat stone drain in the cobblestone courtyard: Memorials commemorating the approximat
The Teton Valley News is our local small-town weekly newspaper covering primarily Teton County, Idaho and Alta, Wyoming. For our family the consistently most interesting section is the Sheriff’s Log report. This week contains an entry that reminds me why we often enjoy it: January 8 — A driver south of Victor reported seeing what appeared to be a fist fight taking place on the side of the highway. A deputy responded and found a couple people salvaging a moose next to the road. They had given each other enthusiastic high fives at one point, which may have been misinterpreted by the passing driver as an exchange of blows. 😆
ally and i were just talking about how we are strangely drawn to the prequel to this movie.... mask of zorro... i think it is the sword fighting and anthony hopkins that wins it... anyway i dont think i ever this one but it sounds like i didnt miss much.... the bad guy is the bad guy from lost....ReplyDelete
The Mask of Zorro was a much better movie than The Legend of Zorro--more plot, more interesting characters, etc. But Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones are beautiful people, so it's not hard to watch them, even in a mediocre movie. Which bad guy? Oh, maybe I shouldn't ask; I've only seen the first season of Lost.ReplyDelete
after being sick for 5 days and watchin a pile of movies it is strange that ally put on the mask of zorro yesterday without even seeing this first.... but as i didnt watch the whole thing i remembered all of it and yes i will stand by what i said before... this was a good one.... hopkins is the main draw here with his wit and ability to keep the movie going regardless of pretty people.... disturbing scene : watching antonio bandares drink a cup of "water" from the container holding his brothers head..... if i wasnt sick already that woulda made my stomach turn.... if you cant remember what i am talking about then dont try....ReplyDelete
I don't remember that part. Yuck. Have you guys seen The Count of Monte Cristo? It's not nearly as good as the book, but I thought the sword-fighting was very good. Not so choreographed and more like they were actually trying to kill each other.ReplyDelete
