This beautiful recipe is from the book Asian Flavors by Wendy Sweetser. It is one of the best cookbooks I have used covering a variety of Asian regions.

Do you ever wonder about ancestry? I have. In the past I had research that showed areas of my lineage, but with the advent of DNA testing I learned some new things. Paper history is not always correct. Here is my updated list for family DNA 2017. I am definitely a Heinz 57. A slang term in the USA for a little bit of everything.

Great Britain, France, Germany, Spain, Ireland, Scotland, Italy, Greece, Finland, Russia, Israel, and a surprise 1% Polynesia.

Official patch of NRO L-19 mission

Today the U.S. launched an ultra secret spy satellite nrol-65 that did not make the mainstream media except for a few internet sites. You can read about it here http://www.nbcnews.com/science/americas-biggest-rocket-launches-top-secret-spy-satellite-8C11022794 Signs of the season or conspiracy? O.k., if it is conspiracy why dragons, snakes, stars, sorcery, chains, flames, devils, etc. Why not angels, doves, and lambs? Why do we need to tear down crosses? Why are we being spied upon both in America and globally, and why are more spy satellites and equipment operations commencing at break neck speed? Why are things once considered evil being mainstreamed at the detriment to society? It doesn’t take one long to figure out that everything good for mankind is being slowly dismantled and replaced with unhealthy options and choices. At some point all the bricks will be removed and people will say,”We have no cover. ” During that time, it will be a very dark period for those who accept. Symbolism is around for those in the know, and for others to find out what it all means.

Here is a site that describes some of the more sinister patches of the spy satellite program.

If you’re in the light, you can only come to the conclusion that some very dark things are happening, and it is happening really fast.

Today I dabbled with some Vietnamese cuisine. I love it for its simplicity, color, and flavors. Here is where I found the basic recipe.  http://allrecipes.com/recipe/vermicelli-noodle-bowl/

However, I decided to opt out on the shrimp and cook gingered pork instead. You can pretty much add any meat or tofu you like for this dish.

To ginger your pork add about a teaspoon of chopped fresh ginger, two cloves of fresh garlic, one bunch of chopped green onions, and about 4 tablespoons olive oil to a skillet for about two minutes to saute. Add about one pound chopped pork loin, 4 tablespoons of soy sauce, stir around periodically until cooked.

Give it a spin in the kitchen. You will not regret it.

A Beautiful Cicada

These beautiful Cicada’s are so rare in Houston these days. It was nice to see one this evening and have him/her so gracefully pose for a photo shoot.

Lovers

A Moment along the Coast

2013 Albert Moyer, Jr.

As the sea mist blows across our skin

And the moonlight lights the way

Your warm beautiful body against mine

Is perfect in every way

The waves wash ashore with musical sound

As the warm water hits our feet

Your lips are moist and sensuous

Your eyes and my eyes meet

So before the sun rises above our head

And this moment passes us by

Let’s embrace with a passionate kiss

To remember this beautiful night

When I stumbled across this tree on the internet my initial reaction was,”Wow! Majestic.” I am just always thrilled by all the amazing things our world has to offer. Here is the Awesome Banyan Tree.

This is actually an outdoor shelter that I stumbled across while walking a trail. It is not a very good one, but some protection is always better than no protection from the elements.

While walking along a trail I notice this really insteresting looking bark pattern that I have never seen before. I do not know what tree this is, but it has colorful bark. Perhaps one of you will identify this tree.
