It's Been A While

Leonora: A Spanish goat cheese. Creamy goat center with a soft, ashy rind. Very Humboldt Fog-like, except that that ash is the rind rather than a middle layer. It's also a little stronger than Humboldt Fog. Pretty good.

In other news, on the recommendation of "experts", I ate my Vacherin Mont d'Or with both boiled potatoes and tuna fish (yes, tuna fish). The potatoes were a hit. I'm still trying to digest the tuna fish.

Guns or Butter?

Anytime Niall Ferguson is referenced, especially when he is comparing the spendthriftness of the Spanish Habsburgs on all things military with the current U.S.'s sad state of financial and military affairs in Iraq and Afghanistan, I'm all ears.

As for me and my house, we choose butter (preferably on a spoon with a little sugar).


Stratfor examines Germany's choices in the face of the impending Greek default.

I wonder if I'll miss the Euro?
