Lost Architecture and RIP Diana Rigg: What I Learned Today – Thursday, September 10

Let’s try a Trump/Covid free version of this today. Even though both are currently devastating everything they touch, I’m going to try to take a break from it, even if just for my own sanity. And it’s so humid right now that I’m basically air swimming so I need some pleasant things. I’m sure you understand.


Places on the web I can get lost in for days at a time.  Reddit’s /r/Lost_Architecture:

Pictured here is the Salem train depot from Salem, MA (Yes, that Salem), which was built in 1848 and torn down in 1954.

Or the Cincinnati Public Library, torn down in 1955.  What a beautiful interior with the spiral staircase.


A homemade hummus recipe. One thing I really like about this recipe is how he prepares the garlic oil and garlic which both can then be used in other recipes as well. (Roasting garlic and infused garlic oil is just so amazing. It cuts out the sharpness in raw garlic so that you can enjoy the rest of your day/night without scaring off anybody who comes closer to you than 15 feet)


RIP Diana Rigg. She stole every scene in Game of Thrones and when people talk about the Avengers, it takes me a bit to realize they are talking about some CGI superhero shit show and not the one with Emma Peel:


Inspired by yesterday’s video, I think this will be my first venture into a new type of breakfast for my palate.  Tamago Kake Gohan. Although I may wait until I have better quality eggs then the one currently in the fridge.  Developing!!
