Sunday - Joe Biden is really beginning to piss me off. Fish or cut bait, old man. I think there is something really cheap about his "will he or won't he?" bullshit. But being a power-hungry sociopath like almost every other politician on Planet Earth, he is loving the media attention, he is loving all the begging from his brain-dead supporters, and he is loving poking a stick at Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. He's what we call a spoiler, and if the Democratic Party has one brain in its collective head, it will tell him to back off.
It's also nice that James has lots of creative ideas of his own, which compliment and enhance whatever hare-brained scheme I happen to be working on at the time.

Cooking for people you love, or at least like, is a very special act of giving. It comes from the heart, and it is meant to be enjoyed by everyone, especially the one doing the cooking.
So slow down and smell the caramelized onions.
