What was your technique?
Both of these need dill.
Tonight featured a lengthy blackout from the board...now I'm back in but ready to sleep.
I could actually gain a few nanograms of weight eating this delicious looking stuff.

Yesterday I found out that stairs can be slippery. Wasn't my most glamorous moment.

Here you go:
I tried an Oculus Rift today. It was a surreal experience to say the least.
I bought samosas, pakoras, and other Indian bakery goods today in San Francisco. The perplexing dilemma, a mind-exploding equation that I could not calculate, was the choice of condiments.
Naturally, hot mango chutney was a given, but I nearly scratched the top of my head to a Nadal-like thinness of hair wondering about the choice of relish.

Where did the "This or That?" thread go?
Sun came out today after a couple of cold, wet days. Afternoon sun on the trees was such a beautiful sight.
Am wondering when is it spring where you guys are ? It must be early for you in America ? Is it still winter there ?
Springs are quite short here. Summers long and merciless (like StringerTom's trolling )
Mike, I am not even sure what a "relish" is. Or how it differs from chutney.
We usually use the word "pickle" on our bottles here which in my lingo is "achaar". We typically do not use vinegar, we put vegetables or chillies or lime/mango in oil with some seasoning (e.g. anise seed). It is usually kept for a few days or more, preferable in the sun.
From what i can think, a chutney has a smoother, pasty consistency. Often it is not cooked, or even kept. It can be made and eaten immediately such as a mint chutney, which is essentially mint leaves ground with (optional) green chillies, or coriander chutney (uses coriander/cilantro leaves). A mango chutney could be cooked ??
I have no idea about relishes.
It has been very pleasant and spring-like in the San Francisco Bay Area for a long time, but the lack of rain is a problem. I briefly saw snow and winter in Denmark and Russia (Putin is a fascist cunt) late last year, and enjoyed it in a small dose on holiday. I hear that it is still Stolichnaya and dill pickle season in New York; I hope that Dedans sends some of his harvest to the Bistro.
I think that you are right about the relishes being pickled mangoes and lime with peppers. Sometimes it is best not to read the ingredients, which I will read off the labels.
Patak's Hot Mango Chutney:
Sugar, mango, salt spices, acetic acid, paprika, garlic, dried red chili peppers.
Patak's Hot Lime "Relish":
Limes, Caonola oil, salt, chile pepper, mustard, acetic acid, fenugreek spices, tumeric (color).
I didn't buy the mango "relish" and am too lazy to read the ingredients of the tamarind chutney.
Langoowage, my dear Mike !
Oh, the Bay Area. I was there on work in the 90's. Wonderful couple months I spent in Redwood City.
I remember the long drives on Highway One. I'd love to run on that road with the ocean on one side. A 20 miler on that road should be awesome.
I learned from a master, master!
It will be 87F today in Orlando...a very early mild and brief taste of our long and merciless summer.
I made my first batch of home-made (obviously!) peanut butter and it's good. Just roasted peanuts and a bit of olive oil. No salt or sugar/honey etc. Went nicely on toast this morning.
It's been ages since i've had PB, btw.
Tomorrow's the festival of colours in my city. Since offices are closed and people will be waking up late, I am scheming and conniving to go on a long early morning road run.
The Simpsons episode from where I got my user name is on right now.
I just bought a take-out "Super Vegetarian" Mission-style burrito. It weighs about three pounds and I think it could feed me for three days.

Potato vodka and dill pickles from Poland are underrated.
The Himalayas from 20,000 ft
The aerial cinema experts at Teton Gravity Research release the first ultra HD footage of the Himalayas shot from above 20,000 ft. with the GSS C520 system, the most advanced gyro-stabilized camera system in the world. Filmed from a helicopter with a crew flying from Kathmandu at 4,600 ft. up to 24,000 ft. on supplemental oxygen, these are some of the most stable, crisp, clear aerial shots of these mountains ever released, which include Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, and Lhotse.
Agreed and on the subject of pickled cucumbers may I just add that the continued prevalence of vinegar use as a conserving agent in North America is a bit puzzling in this age of 21 century logistics, cold chains, etc.
For those who love the sea, this is incredible, totally hypnotic. Just put in on full-screen and keep ogling.
Trippy sea yeah... too bad the 'floor' function was not yet available for the 'float noise' routine in my CS101 back in the day...
I have two never strung Boris Becker Super racquets (red and purple) and strung one with syn gut at 62 lbs and took it out to play. It was very plush with good spin and control. I rate it very highly.
It’s “Groundhog Day” in the cosmos.
In the 1993 Bill Murray movie, a weatherman finds himself reliving the same day over and over again. Now astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope say they have been watching the same star blow itself to smithereens in a supernova explosion over and over again, thanks to a trick of Einsteinian optics.
The star exploded more than nine billion years ago on the other side of the universe, too far for even the Hubble to see without special help from the cosmos. In this case, however, light rays from the star have been bent and magnified by the gravity of an intervening cluster of galaxies so that multiple images of it appear.
Four of them are arranged in a tight formation known as an Einstein Cross surrounding one of the galaxies in the cluster. Since each light ray follows a different path from the star to here, each image in the cross represents a slightly different moment in the supernova explosion.
This is the first time astronomers have been able to see the same explosion over and over again, and its unique properties may help them better understand not only the nature of these spectacular phenomena but also cosmological mysteries like dark matter and how fast the universe is expanding.

^ How does one get to do any long-distance running on those ocean liners ?
Going to sleep now
It took me 2 1/2 hours with breaks in between to edit the fire pro wrestling returns database.
Baltic rides on the undulating sea are the best.

Senti dreams of running in places like this ...
^^ good place to run but the plateau behind is a very good place to do Tabletops.;-)
Running on sand at the edge of seas is pretty nice.
^ Yes, Mike, barefoot running on the sand, i once did that in 2000, with ankle deep water.
Western North Dakota
I have the worse cold ever stuck in bed all day don't feel any better
Running barefoot on the sand is great. I prefer running where the waves break, the sand is firm but soft, and the tide is receding like Rafa's hair. It is important not to get lost in a "runner's high" trance and keep running into the colliding seas!
^^^Happy St Paddy's Day!
It seems like I'm still able to speak Danish.
The Guinness at Copenhagen pubs is pretty good.
Have this, brother.
Sorry, but i was just looking for an excuse to post pics of things I dream of.
I have not waxed my legs in 47 years.
Neither have I.
Have this my good friend.
