Said a friend of Ol' Farley M. Mowat's,
While he Spoke about Life as He knowits,
"As the stress of the Day, Will not Winnow away,
I Seek slumber by Counting blind Poets."

The low down on this week's menu -  Tapenade is a popular spread in the south of France, where it generally consists of olives, capers,  anchovies and olive oil. Classically, tapenade can be riffed many ways, so long as it always has capers and olive oil. Our version consists of capers, olive oil, artichoke hearts, red peppers, parmesan, and parsley. Friday's hero is requested by our Will.

The low down on this week's menu - Tuesday's caramelized onions will either be on a panini with swiss cheese, dijon mustard and arugula, or pizzettes. Depends on the bread situation. Resolved. The wild mushroom pate is a particular favorite here in O2.

News from the dark side - still nothing.
Last week we shared our secret recipe for O2 chili.
Can the wooly bear's stripes predict the coming winter's severity? No. According to our source, the stripes may be  an indication of last winter's though.
Last week's limerick;
There was a coyote of Clinton, 
Whose coat was the color of flint and,
He pressed into the crowd, and he sang loud and proud,
That querulous coyote of Clinton.

Can the wooly bear's stripes predict the coming winter's severity?


News from the dark side - no news is good news.
Last week's toss off limerick, inspired by the start of turkey hunting season;
There was an old Tom from Westmorelan, 
Said, "My bombulus beard is for-lor-in,
Yet when I strut to the vale, and I fan m fantail,
All the hens will still be there adorin."

.

.
The work-a-day world takes its toll,
You may gasp for a grasp of the Whole,
To trade virulent clatters, for something that matters,
Put your hands on the shape of a bowl.


Personalities of the week: Steph and Sophie; Hands to work, hearts to God.
