Memphis Bound

Filed under Friends on Tuesday January 31, 2006 at 1:07 pm

I am really excited. I am going to visit my friend Erica who lives in Memphis this April. She, Tim and I met in college. We had psychology together. She used to let me wear her sweaters – I was sweater poor in college. She moved from Washington in 1998 and I visited her, but it’s coming up on 8 years since I’ve seen her – we e-mail and talk regularly. When I visited in 1998, went to Graceland, downtown Memphis and a beautiful Southern estate. I loved Graceland and all it’s bizzare wonder. You tour through the house and at the end, you come to his grave. Right before the grave, you stand in his raquetball court. Over a loudspeaker, a man tells you the story of Elvis and how on his last day, he worked out and had a heart attack! Kind of different than the drug induced death that I remember. Well, when she and I heard the man say that Elvis played raquetball at all, we started to giggle. We caught ourselves as we looked around and saw several people in tears.

 I can’t wait to see her!

Dan Rather and a Romantic Dinner

Filed under Uncategorized on Friday January 27, 2006 at 7:36 am

Strange title right? I received tickets to see Dan Rather speak at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Tim picked me up at work on Thursday and we made our way downtown. We were both starving and weren’t completely sure where to eat. We parked at the Walt Disney Concert Hall and walked across to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. We found an outdoor restaurant next to a beautiful fountain. It was so romantic. We sat under a heater with a perfect view of the fountain. We drank wine, had excellent fish and split a dessert called the Magic cube. It was a two layer chocolate mousse covered in chocolate.

Dan Rather was very interesting. It was strange to see him so close – we had excellent seats. I felt like we grew up with him. He focused on the responsibility of the press to ask “the hard questions”. So often we go to movies or watch TV. I enjoyed the political discourse. The crowd was very liberal and let’s just say the collective “sigh” when the words “George Bush” were uttered was loud! But Dan stayed away from finger pointing. Bill Clinton is coming in April and we are going to try to get tickets.

It was a night to remember!

Netflix

Filed under Movies on Wednesday January 25, 2006 at 7:33 pm

Hey Kids – I’ve got a great new thing for you to try! It’s called Netflix. You can rent movies and they send them to your home and then you mail back. Heard of it? Yes, well that’s because we are the last people in America to try it! But if, like me, you are behind the times somehow, sign up! The selection is outrageous! The documentary section is so huge! We rented several.

A Few Good Movies

Filed under Movies on Wednesday January 25, 2006 at 7:30 pm

Last night, we went to see “The Squid and the Whale”. All the performances are incredible in this movie. Jeff Daniels in particular is excellent. I hope he gets nominated for an Academy Award. It’s about a family going through a divorce in the late 80’s and how it effects each of them. The child actors are wonderful. The youngest boy is played by Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates’ son. He reminds me so much of her – the way he moves his eyes. I believe it’s leaving theaters this week, but when it pops up to rent, be sure to get it.

We also saw “Walk the Line” on Sunday. So far, this is my favorite movie of the year. Johnny went through so much and had so many demons. But this movie is a love story. And it’s a very satisfying love story. June Carter Cash and Johnny have an affair of sorts for 10 years on stage. Reese and Joaquin give passionate performances. I was blown away by the singing. Joaquin had every mannerism down. I don’t know a lot about Johnny Cash, but one of my favorite songs is “Ring of Fire”. June wrote that song about her feelings for him. It’s still out there so try to see it in the theater, but if you don’t rent that one too.

I have three movies left to go and then I’m ready for the Academy Awards on March 5th: “Brokeback Mountain”, “The Constant Gardner” and “Cinderella Man”. What a great year for films!

Shocker

Filed under Cooking on Thursday January 19, 2006 at 9:40 am

My mom got me a subscription to Rachael Ray’s magazine. I like Rachael, but I’m not a big fan. Well, I was surprised – it is a really good magazine. I found a couple of great recipes and she had a fun section on specialty markets in New York. I recommend picking it up some time – you might be surprised too!

Capote

Filed under Movies on Friday January 13, 2006 at 4:41 pm

I admit that I am not the most well-read person! But many years ago, I read a short story by Truman Capote called “The Grass Harp” – on my own and not for college. I loved it. It’s a beautiful touching story with incredible imagery. And we all know “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” – actually a darker short story than the movie. But my strongest memories of Truman Capote are from the movie “Murder by Death”. This is a Neil Simon movie that parodies the murder mystery genre.

Over the years, I meant to read “In Cold Blood”, but didn’t get around to it. I know the story and the impact of the book. When “Capote” came out, I knew it was a must see. Last night, we finally caught it at the Sunset 5 in Hollywood. What an amazing movie!  Philip Seymour Hoffman gave one of the best performances I’ve EVER seen. I truly felt that I went through the experiences with Capote. All the emotion – the narcissism, compassion and grief. The character was so vivid and real for me. I highly recommend this movie.

What can a plastic surgeon do for you?

Plastic surgery is a medical branch that deals with the restoration and / or forms and functions of different parts of the body. It includes several types of hand surgery, microsurgery and reconstructive surgery. The word “plastic” is used in the sense of compression or part of the body.

A plastic surgeon is the person in the performance of different techniques of plastic surgery is formed. looks with the awareness of people is about plastic surgery is a rage in most people. It is a popular practice to remove the imperfections and the effects of physical aging of a person.

Seasonal garden chores

It’s April 2nd and I’ve been busy this week clearing brush, tilling and making raised beds.  I have peas, radishes, spinich, romaine lettuce and onions planted.  If the rain holds off, I should get the broccolli, brussels sprouts and potatoes planted soon.  I hope the weather in your region has allowed you to get your hands dirty this week.

             Wake Up Your Garden! Take 10% off orders of $75 or more at Gardener’s Supply Company! Offer ends 4.13.11. 

Seed and Starting Supplies

I usually get my seed, peat pots, potting soil and growing tray several weeks before I’m going to start my seedI have covered seed starting and needed supplies in the seed starting page.  If you’re going to start other vegetables or flowers, the seed packets will give you a time frame to start them but you’ll need to know the average date for the last frost in your area.  Your County Extension Service is a great resource to get that and any other information that you need.

Get the Tiller Ready

If you own a tiller, you need to go over some things so it’s ready when you are.  First, check the oil or change it if needed.  I only use my tiller once in the spring so I don’t have to change the oil that often.  I’ll usually put in a new spark plug every couple of years also.  I then check the grease in the gear casing and look around for any leaks.  Some years ago, I had used some twine in my garden and when I tilled it the next spring, my tiller picked up a length of that twine and wrapped it around the shaft, through the rubber seal and into the gear box.  Consequently, the gear box grease was leaking out.  I pulled out the twine and it resealed.  Just something to keep in mind. 

Next, I remove the air filter and check it.  Again, since I only use my tiller once in the spring, I’ll look at it but I usually clean it every other year.  You should check your tillers engine manual but, if it has a foam filter like mine, you can wash it in soap and water.  After you wash it, ring out the extra water and then pour a small amount of engine oil over it and squeeze it to make the oil spread through it.  The oil catches the dust and dirt so it doesn’t get into the carburetor.

The next thing I do with my tiller is sharpen the tines.  I put a lot of organic material on my garden and sharp tines really make a difference.  My tiller has 4 sets of tine assemblies (4 tines per assembly) that are easily removed by simply pulling out a pin from each assembly and then sliding them off the shaft.  The tine assemblies on my tiller can not be put on backwards, meaning the sharp edges of the tines will be in the correct position to cut into the soil.  Years ago I had a tiller that would allow you to put them on backwards.  Needless to say, it could make tilling pretty rough.  Of course, I’m not saying that I ever put them on backwards :).  I mean, that would be pretty dumb!  Anyway, after I remove them, I sharpen them on my bench grinder.  You can use a file but the grinder is so much easier and faster plus there are always many other jobs that you can use it for.  After you’ve sharpened them, slide them back on the shafts, secure them and you’re done.  Never put any oil or lube on the shafts because dirt will stick to it.

Finally, fill the tank with fresh gas and start it up.  It should start in 2 or 3 pulls but if it doesn’t start in a dozen pulls, there’s a problem.  Check the simple things like the spark plug wire not connected but, unless you’re a small engine whiz, you’ll need to take it to a professional.  That’s the advantage of checking things prior to the day you’re ready to get going!

Concerning your manual garden tools like the hoe, rake, shovel, potato fork, etc., you should get them all located in one place and take a quick check.  Since I dig beds in my vegetable garden (see plant in beds not rows), I also sharpen my round shovel.  

Do a Walk Through

I don’t clean my garden off in the fall because I till in all the organic material (grass clippings, leaves, straw, garden plants) to improve the soil (see Garden Soil).  I always walk around the garden and remove the bean towers, tomato cages, and anything else that needs to come out before I till.  With the winds that we have in the winter, sometimes you can find trash that could damage your tiller, such as the twine that I mentioned earlier.

Flower Garden

For the perennial flower garden, if you didn’t cut off the dead stems from your coneflowers, bee balm, black eyed susans, etc. last fall, you can do that now.  You can shake the seeds from the dried flower heads if you want them to spread even more.  If you have some compost, you should spread some on.  Sometimes I buy bags of the cow manure humus and spread it around the bed.  It’s inexpensive and seems to get them off to a good start. 

If you have an area that you plant annuals in every year, you can prepare it by turning it with a potato fork or tilling depending on how big the area is.  Mixing in some compost or humus will improve the soil and get your annuals going good when you plant them.

Be Patient

If you’re like me, you want to get in the garden but we still have some time to wait.  Don’t work your garden when it’s wet and check the last frost date for your area.  There are cool weather vegetable crops that you can put in soon (Growing Vegetables) and even some flowers that will handle a light frost but make sure you check and time your plantings accordingly.

Good Luck and Enjoy!

    Old havana furniture company

    e are the Old Havana Furniture Company & Art Gallery. It is our intention to educate the Cuban-American society on our diverse, colorful history and design background – not to mention the writers, poets, musicians and sculptors that have inspired us. We are the generation that has lived only with the memory of a free Cuba – a Cuba where it was safe to say and do whatever it was that moved you. It was these thoughts that prompted us to start this company. Since I, as an artist, think along these lines I felt that I should do everything in my power to showcase our culture, our love of the arts and the wonderful and gifted artists who have lived in exile for so many years. I want to show my generation what a beautiful place our parents and grandparents lived in, and how they lived, which brings me to the furniture part of our business. Our ancestors had such exquisite styles of furniture, it was as though the sky, the oceans, and the majestic mountains of our country were all incorporated into them. It was as if God himself had styled them.

    We at the Old Havana Furniture Company would like to introduce other Latin American artists who have that same passion and love of the arts that we do. It is with the utmost pride and joy that we introduce you to these wonderful people, their works of art, and our line of fine Cuban furniture reproductions. We hope that you will visit our showroom and see what’s been kept secret for so long-the beauty of Cuba and all the Latin American countries.

    Old Havana Furniture Company & Art Gallery is also for my father, who inspired me with his unrelenting love of his country and his culture. May he see through my eyes and heart what was kept from him for so long.
