Passing on the regional dish of Granada

Paul, · Categories: Amusements, General

The week of April 24 – May 1, I’ll be in Granada Spain for the Louis Round Wilson Knowledge Trust meetings. I knew that Andalusia was famous for gazpacho, but I didn’t know of the renowned speciality in Granada, the Sacromonte omelette “a dish that is not recommended for the delicate palate and prepared with bone marrow, brains, calf testicles and egg.”
Yikes! Set me up for a British fry up of Egg, Bacon, Chips and Beans!

Bright to be in Black

Goth is good for you. (Unless you read the BBC version of the New Scientist story). Compare the headlines: NS reads Goth subculture may protect vulnerable children whilst BBC says fearfully Goths ‘more likely to self-harm’. From Boing Boing.
Kristina alerts us to another Goth Success thread based on a German dissertation reported in The Independent as Don’t mock goths: future’s bright for the men and women in black (Note that this is in the Enjoyment Section, but is Marilyn Mason really too mainstream for Goths?) and The Guardian as I have seen the future – and it’s goth (includes the funny 10 telltale signs that your boss is a Goth).
