An Ode to Nutmeg & Onions

I was reading a food lovers article that said, “Of the five senses, smell is the most “direct”: when we smell the aroma of a delicious dish of pasta served in tomato sauce, the odorous molecules reach the nasal cavity and are captured by the mucous which contain olfactory receptors.

Let's see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who's standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend... Continue Reading →


Man, am I tired of this word. Every five seconds. I'm living in unprecedented times. These are unprecedented markets. These are unprecedented situations. Holy hell people, yeah, we get it. We ain't been 'ere before. I turn on the TV and there's a morose yet soothing voice saying someone's company somewhere is "here for me".... Continue Reading →
