Your Brain on "Deep Reading"
The Ezra Klein Show podcasts are always interesting but this one is especially so. It's entitled "This Conversation About the "Reading Mind" is a Gift." It's the kind of podcast that you listen to and immediately think, I need to listen to that again! Enjoy! (If this is behind a paywall, you can find the show on your podcast app.)
I've spent many, many Christmases in Japan. For the most part, I've come to accept the limitations of the season here and have made my own traditions. However, one thing I still miss (other than my mother's pork pie) is eggnog! It's impossible to find it here. I have made it but my husband loathes it so finding a recipe for only a small amount has been a challenge. Until now, that is! This recipe for small-batch eggnog from Smitten Kitchen looks doable! I will most certainly give it a try over the next week.
When can I reuse my calendar?
I have several old calendars stored away because the artwork is so beautiful that I'd like to find a way to recycle them. However, I just learned that it is possible to reuse them as calendars depending on the year. (Of course, some of the events may not match-upl) This handy website set you straight on what calendars from the past you can re-use this year, and when you can re-use this year's calendar in the future. (I just dug out one from 2017 and it's going to work for 2023. It's a standing calendar shaped like a vase with the months printed on flowers that you flip up. I'm so pleased that I can use it again!)
I'm stepping back from social media so this is where I share links that I think others might enjoy. They will rarely be related to photography though!
