One Step from Completion

So… I’ve been on a mission.  A long, difficult, and culturally divisive mission.   And I’m one step–one long and potentially impossible step–away from completion.

I’m on a mission to make….

…. Eggs Benedict!

All I need is a Chinese replacement for English muffins.   I’ve learned to make hollandaise; I can’t poach eggs the right way, but I’ve figured out a way to do it with a double-boiler; I found ham slices; I have a small oven to toast the English muffins (if I can find them).  Now… all I need are the English muffins.

Soon!  Soon!

Weather

I put a new weather widget over there→.  The old one was showing the weather for Shanghai, and the weather there is quite different than here.

The past week or so, we’ve been sitting at about 100°, with a heat index of almost 115°.   This is a normal summer here.
