Before Sushi went Global

I'll admit it, I still have not tried Sushi. My daughter loves it, and I intend to give it a try one day soon. I feel rather behind the times.

I guess it's because I didn't grow up with even the word Sushi, much less the eating of the raw blue fin tuna.

The globalization of food and technology is a wonderful thing, even though some of us are a little slow to incorporate new things into our daily lives. That's okay though. I'm sure I won't have it every day, or even every week, but I certainly will learn to enjoy it.

Here's some interesting info on the blue fin tuna before the American demand for it existed... you fishermen/women may enjoy this one.

" Commercial fishers, if they caught bluefin at all, sold them for cat food when they could and trucked them to town dumps when they couldn't."

Now, a couple hundred top quality blue fin tuna will sell for over a million dollars!!!

Dark Shadows Star Jonathan Frid Dead

How sad that he would pass just before the release of the movie in which he has a cameo in. I hope he got to see it.

Jon Stewart Hilarious Rant on Attitudes towards Poor

You must listen/see this clip from Jon Stewart to actually hear the ridiculous claims being made about the poorest in the US. For instance, 99.6% of those so-called poor have a refrigerator.

How sad.
