No trip to the Boston “Museum of Science” is complete unless I take a selfie in one of their many mirrors. These were the selfies from March 2, 2017.

Wow. I will have to work on my impressive TRIPLE chin! I look like the turkey that many think I am!

Think – Today: Why Don’t Plastic Oven Bags (For Roasting Turkeys) Melt In The Oven?

by Anura Guruge


thinktodaybanner
turkeybagsI just bought some today and used a bag, very successfully, to roast a 14lb turkey. Yes, it sure does help keep it real moist. But, I couldn’t help wonder why the bag wouldn’t melt (despite the 2 tablespoons of flour you have to put in to prevent such melting?


Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.


Yesterday’s ‘Think’‘538’ is the number of ‘electors’ in the U.S. Electoral College — which, in the end, is the body that formally elects the U.S. President. The ‘538’ corresponds to the 435 Representatives and 100 Senators, plus the three additional electors from the District of Columbia. The candidate that gets a majority of the 538 Electoral College votes is automatically the President. 1/2 of 538 = 269. Hence, the magical ‘270’ number. The absolute majority when there are 538 votes.

We have a lot of turkeys around here — with and without feathers. These, for a change, were not in our yard or on our road. I think the dogs have done a good job letting them know that if they are on their yard they will be chased. These were a few miles away. I took the Jaguar for a spin. If you look at the post you can see the turkeys behind the car,

Always Strikes Me As Strange That Popes Can’t Protect Italy From Earthquakes.

by Anura Guruge


earthquake

From “usatoday.com”. Google for more. Breaking news — today.


The OFFICIAL Titles Held By Pope Francis.

One of them is ‘Vicar of Jesus Christ’.

Vicar, in this context means, ‘Representative’ (or ‘Deputy’).

The list of Earthquakes in Italy since 2000 — from Wikipedia.

popes1212


To I, it just seems strange — incongruous.

All this praying, Masses and whatever.

Why can’t they keep Earthquakes away from ‘home’.

Shouldn’t God be using them to RATTLE the heathens rather than hurt the poor, long-suffering Italian Catholics?
(And yes, of course, I have not forgotten Japan, China, Nepal and Turkey.)

Just wondering. Just asking.

I wish I had the answer.

The supreme irony here would be that the magnificently incomparable Hagia Sophia is what it is today, a secular Byzantian Museum because of the inspired diplomacy of Archbishop Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli (who would become Pope John XXIII (#262)) when he was the Apostolic Delegate to Turkey (1934 to 1944). I talk about it in my 2014 book “Pope John XXIII: 101 Facts & Trivia“.
