6 Then the LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast?
7 If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must master it."
8
Now Cain said to his brother Abel, "Let's go out to the field."
And while they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him.
9 Then the LORD said to Cain, "Where is your brother Abel?"
"I don't know," he replied. "Am I my brother's keeper?"

Genesis 4: 6-9

Why's it that the ones we love hurt us the most?

During my recent stay in the wonderful city of St Louis I visited one of the most magikal places. The City Museum located in the loft district of downtown is more of an adventure than a museum visit. Created mostly from found objects and architectural treasures its truly a must see. A surrealist playground is putting it mildly. From slides, to whales to secret passages to caves, planes, tunnels, cages, bugs, tree's. More than 6 stories of welded tunnels and slides, an entire airplane, a castle, bugs, dragons....all of which you can climb, explore play. Words cannot describe it, I'm blessed to have experienced it...
Heres some of what I saw...















Kimchi

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kimchi (pronounced /ˈkɪmtʃi/, Korean pronunciation: [kimtɕʰi]), also spelled gimchi, kimchee, or kim chee, is any one of numerous traditional Korean pickled dishes made of vegetables with varied seasonings. Its most common manifestation is the spicy baechu (cabbage) variety. Kimchi is the most common banchan, or side dish, in South Korea and many South Korean communities and locales. Kimchi is also a common ingredient and combined with other ingredients to make dishes such as kimchi stew (kimchi jjigae) and kimchi fried rice (kimchi bokkeumbap). Kimchi is so ubiquitous that the Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) developed space kimchi to accompany the first Korean astronaut to the Russian-manned space ship Soyuz.[1]

Yule Pie



Raw Pecan Pie

Lo Bueno
T'was Yule-tide, it was snowing and I had on my new union suit.
My first attempt at Raw Pecan Pie was more than a success it was heaven.
It was all I ever wanted....and then some.
Great texture, delicious flavor, perfect crust.

Lo Malo
I ate the whole thing....every last bite
It was raped, pillaged and plundered into my belly.
It started off like a quiet evening on Damen Ave, 2 slices after dinner, followed by some wine (I hardly ever drink)
Lets just say its early demise ended with me, a spoon and the kitchen floor.
