198. Chili, Grilled Cheese, and some chilled Pears

Entry number three for October will be short. I haven't been writing since I've had little to say. I've read where you shouldn't write if you have nothing to say. My grandmother used to say if you have nothing nice to say, keep quiet. As a "Democratic operative," I should be excited about the governor's race since our side is going to win in a landslide it seems. I can't see any way for the incumbent Republican governor to find an electoral majority, no matter how hard I try - just as an academic experiment. And the lunacy of the Bush administration is beyond comment or belief at this point. I did do some volunteering for the Kentucky Shakespeare Festival over the weekend at the 50th Annual Saint James Art Fair in Old Louisville. The festival produces the Bard's free plays in Central Park each summer, in addition to some school age productions under the title of The Globe Players.

Sometimes when bloggers have nothing about which to write, they print other folk's work. There was an interesting article today or yesterday in the Wall Street Journal about Kentucky caviar being served as a specialty at the Seelbach Hotel downtown, which incidentally was sold last week. I could have reprinted that article. Or, a friend of mine, one who is an excellent writer and thinker, sent me an article to critique - one which should be printed somewhere. But that would be cheating. Cheating, by the way, is probably the only way the governor could be re-elected, but it would have to be one hell of a cheat.

So, instead of writing all of these things, or rather not writing them, I'll just let you know for dinner tonight I made some Chili, a grilled cheese sandwich, and had some chilled pears for dessert.
