I know what to call the Benghazi Committee interrogation now....

I believe this is a form of Political Waterboarding.....conducted by republican CIA wannabees.

That is all

My Brett, who is at New England Culinary Institute, attended " Best of France " at Time Square NYC.

He's still in New York for the week...the event was over the weekend. He got to meet Daniel Boulud.... Went and did a stag at Per Se.....Yes, met with Thomas Keller.... He will also do an internship under Thomas Keller at Per Se and French Laundry.... I'm in heaven now. I got pictures... Don't know how to share them or get them out of my Gallery yet.

Question.... Regarding Black Lives Matters...

I understand there is a 10 point Manifesto....Is there an author to these points? If not....how were they adopted? A friend was asking and I'm clueless. DU is always spot on top of such issues.

It's here!!!! My dear friend, Francois de Melogue has finished his cookbook!!!!


" Cuisine of the Sun"

features simplistic, delicious cooking techniques and Provencal recipes.

Please visit the kick starter page and see his video clip. He did everything himself....now in the final phase. Pledge your support and get a first edition, signed copy.

Oh, I must add....he is a HUGE Bernie Sanders Supporter. Francois trained at the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont where now my Brett attends. Francois has been pivotal in guiding Brett as he has also done for Beau MacMillian who is featured in the video clip.

Game of Thrones: Episode 9 Dance of Dragons....***Speculation Spoilers below.

Well, Stannis has just failed the test of what kings are made of.....apparently he has to cheat to win. In light of his most recent choice of battle strategies, it makes me sense that he will die very soon at the hand of Brienne of Tarth from the pointy end of Oathkeeper. I think the show has built-up to this possibility. Brienne talking/sharing with Pod the Squire about her bond with Renley in earlier episode and her first oath was promised.....I just hope that Ramsey and the Boltons are snuffed out before that happens.

I was thrilled with Dany riding Drogon as this is who she is..." Mother of Dragons" ; glad to see her back on task....Tyrion is just awesome.....Jorah has been redeemed but what the hell is going to happen with the greyscales? That said, it was discussed in previous episodes that Stannis did seek out all the Maesters in the land to cure his daughter...which was a success. So, maybe Tyrion will recall the incident.

Jon at the Wall....I think he is going to have his "awakening" moment. I am a fan of the Prince who was Promised.

Okay...what say you?

I'm throwing this OP post out here to get feedback...

I know we have to wait for the autopsy report etc,,,, I always want to understand what happened. I'm just speculating....like anyone else.

I think the Baltimore cops were cowboying around resulting in the fatal injury to Freddie.

I listened to Rachel Maddow....

Sounds to me it was a combination of events.. I sense initial injury of a cracked spine/ vertebrae occurred at the chase take-down. Then he got a "rough ride" in the van, unrestrained and handcuffed which extended and displaced the spinal cracks into fracture shards cutting the spine. Fractured larynx from an impact hit to the throat during a toss in the van...probably hitting the bench while handcuffed and striking his neck area during a toss when brakes applied to van. Hitting the bench at the larynx area also could of extended the spinal cracks in vertebrae...making complete fractures and severing spinal cord.

That's my sense of breakdown scenario. Rachel gave no injury speculation but did give details of the transport phase. It's just my look at the options...

I think the rough ride was done because they were pisst after having to chase him for several blocks.....No intentional harm but always dangerous for obvious reasons. The ride to the jail was only 30 minutes...they admitted to making I believe, 3 stops. Maybe the term cowboying around does not fit...I don't see malicious/ malice either....

Should there be a movement to boycott the NCAA Final Four? Related to the Indiana discrimination law

The Final Four will be held in Indianapolis Indiana. Home viewers can go into "blackout mode"....I enjoy the Final Four but will support a TV blackout if it is in vogue.

John Legend accepted an Oscar for "Glory".... Why was he not listed as a nominee?

I'm confused....

Son is doing his first culinary internship in California.

This is an amazing opportunity for a 19 year old who desires to become a fine Chef. He attends New England Culinary Institute in Vermont.

The Chef is very much a dynamic teacher of the French Culinary style using, local, sustainable ingredients. He will work this intern to his limit...that's a good thing.

It's a 6 month internship.
