You know what I can't stand about Flickr? The comments! Every good photo has a ton of meaningless comments attached to it... "Great." "Wow." "Best photo ever." Etcetra.As for the oranges: Is there a Godfather out there that needs to meet his end? Tiger Woods? A politician?
I can't get over that gorgeous Vernon Owens bowl. Or the tea cups and goblets. I'm a potter myself in my spare time, and I love looking at pictures of pottery. In the photo below this entry where you show the oranges spread out on the counter, I also couldn't help admiring the three square plates in the upper left corner. And you know those little cheese plates in the upper right corner? I have the very same set myself. Except I have four. Did you break one, or are you using it for something somewhere else? (I use one of mine as a spoon rest on my stove top.)
Fresh fruit juice was the limeys answer to scurvy on long sea voyages and it is a great answer to vitamen C deficiency in the winter months. I prefer Indian River Ruby Red grapefruit juice with added fiber, calcium and omega 3. They squeeze it for me too.
Actually, I see that there are four square plates. They are probably four of the small round dishes, too. They're just hard to see.

I prefer Indian River Ruby Red grapefruit juice with added fiber, calcium and omega 3. They squeeze it for me too. Which, of course, is how British military personnel came to be called, "Limeys". Personally, I like that name better than, "Brits". Onions do the same thing. There's a story of a troop of the 9th Cavalry on a very long patrol chasing Comanches. Upon seeing a field of onions planted by some Chinese miners and wracked by scurvy, they "threw out a skirmish line and not an onion lived to tell the tale".PS That bowl reminds me of an old ceramic one my Mom had. Hers was a bit more gold in color and had a little bit of embellishment on it, but many a good batch of brownies was mixed therein.Sigh. (Thanks, guys. You just brought back a nice memory.)
orange you glad you're married?
Oranges in a beautiful stoneware bowl? Eggs in my 18th century Wedgwood bowl.
When Global Warming finally kicks in, I can plant an orange tree in my backyard here in Pennsylvania. Can't wait.
Good thing you asked for four.
Yemen Mocha in my 18th century Sèvres porcelain cup?
Duck eggs on my Qianlong period Chinese export porcelain plate?
Salad with shrimp and apple.

Tee hee, for sure!
Regarding writing, I did my time: I just spent many minutes looking through the provisions of a new amnesty bill and discussing just how bad it is. You won't find discussions like that from bloggers, but even worse many of the current GOP/Republican leaders will probably ignore, support, or take a fall for this or a related bill. That includes the tea partiers, whose leaders are libertarians or corrupt Beltway hacks who receive money from those who want greater immigration.
How will I know when I've written four inches? It all depends on the monitor you choose to view this own, so the number of inches of this comment is dependent on the monitor (or device in the case of you smartphone using folks) used.I really want to follow the instructions for this comment section, but I'm afraid it's technologically impossible to be certain that the user-end experience meets the parameters set forth.Oh, well, instead I'll just pimp my lists of best films of the 00s.Here's what I've come up with so far:2000Battle Royale, Best In Show, Almost Famous2001Shaolin Soccer, Wet Hot American Summer, Spirited Away2002Orange County, Infernal Affairs, Femme Fatale (a weak year for films)2003Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, Finding Nemo, Pirates of the Carribean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (a remarkable year for actually satisfying blockbusters)2004The Incredibles, Kill Bill Vol2(and1), Kung Fu HustleThat's it so far, if you want reasons, and the films that just missed the top three of that year, follow the link. So far, seems like a good decade for Asian films, and a bad decade for good 'serious' films.(D'oh! Looks like I'm way over four inches...)(Also, that's what she said)
I suppose everyone at the Orange Hotel has fallen asleep on their soft beds of Satsuma mandarins...
For the hell of it: Frank Rich on Whoopi Goldberg circa 1984.
Also, how 'bout that move of Gitmo inmates from sunny climes to the village of Thomson, IL (and the silly, amusing, not particularly useful description of the Thomson Correctional Center as [just] 150 miles from Chicago? (You'd think they were talking Naperville, or something.)wv: OrionOh, tee-freakin'--hee!
OT: Busy two days for me, but I wanted to share this link with my fellow Althousians:IT'S HAPPENED AGAIN!"WASHINGTON – It wasn't a state dinner, and they didn't crash it on purpose.Still, a Georgia couple who showed up at the White House a day early for a tour somehow wound up at an invitation-only breakfast with President Barack Obama and the first lady. It left the White House once again explaining how people who were not on an event guest list wound up being ushered into the presidential mansion anyway."Come ON now. Who has to die before the Obama White House tightens up access to the President in the WHITE HOUSE??Cheers,Victoria
Victoria: I'm getting a "404 Not Found" in response to clicking on the link you posted. Repost it?
OK. This must be it. (Or at least it refers to the same incident.)
I'm not sure about the *again* part, though, since this appears to have occurred a couple of weeks prior to the Salahi incident.
Huh. Interesting how that article is written, and how the Darden quotes read [/are phrased].Makes me want to Google the Dardens, as well.
Yeah, lots of flickr comments are worth squat, but the tags and other features (like notes) more than make up for it.
Lord, I do love history--history being, at heart, the narrative of various smaller stories which lead to all sorts of connections, some of them quite large and sometimes even momentous.*** Fun times.Did you know that FDR owned a hand-controller car he bought from a Hogansville, GA, dealership owned by a man named Darden?Never heard of that my entire life, until now.
I saw Tom Ford's A Single Man tonight.Run to the theaters fellow republicans when it gets to your Red States in the summer or many months past it's due date.Tom Ford, what a fantastic transition from Gucci to film.Colin Firth-tour de force and Oscar Worthy.Julianne Moore-delish.Absolutely stunning.
Who has to die before the Obama White House tightens up access to the President in the WHITE HOUSE??Dont be taken in - its a purposeful distraction.The SS has become a political operation. nothing is sacred.wv - heist - see?
If you love Gucci in the late 90's, and who amongst us didn't, you are going to love A Single Man.Like a dreamy perfume commercial.I devoured it, every last bite.Julianne Moore putting on eyeliner, I totally jizzed my pants.

The SS has become a political operation. nothing is sacred.Certainly when the Demos are in charge.If the Secret Service (don't use the initials, it defames a lot of good men and women) is political in this case, on whose side is it?WV "scherhoo" What Sonny said when he met his future bride.
Good morning Althouse and All.Which of those oranges got squoze for this morning's juice?
Breakfast is served at TMR:Come and get it,...
Why are women bad drivers? Because for centuries, they've been told that 4 inches is actually 6.
The slanting winter sun.

Good eye, MMan.
@Ralph That's not the way I've heard that old joke. I heard it as why are men so bad at (whatever)... They *think* etc etc.Your form of the joke has women believing what men say, and that's not even good as misogyny.
I didn't know there was a distaff version of that joke.The male one cuts both sexes down to size, which yours (characteristically female?) doesn't.
