Rowdy’s Dream Blog #335: Photographing an Eagle with a Camera Made of Cheese

I am on the back porch of my childhood home. A large Mexican gray eagle lands on my shoulder and then jumps to the ground. I coax him back up and tell G to go get my camera. She returns but can't seem to work it. I take it from her angrily. It has become camera parts imbedded in yellow cheese. I try anyway to hold it at arm's length and get a shot.

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #147: Gunfight

Nick Brown Edition

We're in a gunfight against some other people. I can't see any of them peeking out of their buildings, so I scoot under a corral fence, gun drawn and horse apples right next to my face, to get a closer look. Some tiny blonde kids go in and out of a glass door and we all agree not to shoot. Then I notice a man across the yard with a shotgun pointed right at me. I try to scoot backwards but seem to be stuck.

Later, I'm going to trade some plums for some cheese in a cardboard tin with my own people. First a woman tells me it's too much cheese, then a man tells me it's not enough. Somehow, I'm the one giving both plums and cheese.

History Lesson

DayBird - March 1st

752 BC Romulus, first king of Rome, celebrates the first Roman triumph after his victory over the Caeninenses, following The Rape of the Sabine Women.

1562 Huguenots are massacred by Catholics in France, marking the start of the French Wars of Religion. Someone threw a rock at a duke, or something. Officially.

1692- Salem Witch Hunt begins - Sarah Goode, Sarah Osborne, and Tituba, are charged with the practice of witchcraft. Tituba, under coercion, torture or you know they asked her nicely, confessed to the crime. Go ahead, name names, Kazan.

It started a month before with Abby and sis throwing a tantrum. Others soon join in. The first tried was Bridget Bishop, who was found guilty and executed by hanging. Thirteen women and four men followed her to the gallows, and one man was executed by crushing. Those tried were condemned on the basis of the witnesses' shenanigans during the proceedings.

1910 David Niven, English actor (d. 1983) or you can watch “Casino Royale” in its entirety.

1922 Yitzhak Rabin, Prime Minister of Israel (d. 1995)

1932 - Lindbergh baby kidnapped. Charles Lindbergh III, the 20-month-old son of aviation hero Charles Lindbergh, is kidnapped from the family's home in Jersey. The kidnapper used a ladder to climb up to the open second-floor window. Does not end like “Raising Arizona”

1936 The Hoover Dam is completed.

1954 Castle Bravo, a 15-megaton hydrogen bomb, is detonated on Bikini Atoll. It proved to be a large radiation fallout disaster: ashes from the explosion flew miles into inhabited islands. Sharing is caring.

1981 - Irish Republican Army member Bobby Sands began a hunger strike at the Maze Prison in Northern Ireland.

We lost the gold yesterday in Hockey, in overtime. Well played, Canada. Now back to ignoring the existence of NBC.

The Big Cheese

It takes experts the better part of an hour to crack open a wheel of Parmigiano-Reggiano. Parm wheels weigh a whopping 85 pounds apiece, and cutting into them the traditional way calls for a set of five special knives from Italy. It's a serious spectacleone that restores dignity and respect to the age-old question: Who cut the cheese? Saturday at 1 p.m., you will know exactly who and how as Whole Foods Market locations everywhere demonstrate this age-old culinary craft. There'll be snacks and other treats, too.

Greatest Sips

In the six years since we starting doing food and beer writing, our conduits have been many: Internet, video, independent newspaper, radio, catering, hanging out, bike rides, beer tastings and various other bamboozley boons. It’s time to add another notch to the gun.
