  a new drink for the people
Lately I've been experimenting with food, blending some ingredients out of curiosity. A canned veg chili turned out to be bland, so I stirred in some peanut butter to give it a richer flavor; another day I brewed a pasta sauce based on NYF and miso paste when I ran out of tomato sauce.

Watching the YouTube/CNN Republican debate this week, I appreciated seeing McCain put Romney to shame on the issue of torture. I fundamentally disagree with the GOP platform and would despair to see any of these candidates end up in the Oval Office, but McCain is dead-right on this issue.


Doesn't OJ curdle cow milk?
I know Surge will curdle milk, but thats not really on topic.
