Cavalock and The Great Corn Collective

What a crazy ass busy couple of weeks. Me Dad was down with a terrible case of food poisoning and I was back in full caregiver mode for an entire week. Daily trips to NUH and all that. Got some writing to do, Lego to build and new boardgame or rather miniatures to play. Oh yah, plus a whole buncha TV shows to catchup, believe it or not, I have yet to watch Iron Fist and last year's American Horror Story and already I'm looking forward to the new season of Fargo. You know Fargo usually has little Easter eggs tied in with previous seasons, well, unfortunately I don't remember much of the previous season anymore. Got to rely on the Internet for that. I'm not ambitious, these days I just got for little pockets of accomplishments or achievements. Hah!

Our regular hangout Suju at Mandarin Gallery is finally done with its renovation and we headed there for dinner after catching Wonder Woman on the big screen (yes, I don't watch every movie on me iPad!). Highlight of that meal has gotta be the Toumorokoshi, a ear of Japanese corn or corn cob done three ways. Grilled, raw and boiled. Raw was the star with its natural sweetness. Amazing.

Me 83-year-old Dad took these shots at Chinese Garden a couple weeks ago. He was there almost every morning staking out the nest. Pretty sure they have all flown the coup by now.
