Today is Boychild's birthday!  There were 5 boys born that day and the others were named Sean/Shawn or Patrick....he's Jason.  The nurse told me when she was filling out the birth certificate.  🙂 

He's coming down for the weekend (lives an hour away) and I'm making all his favorites.  We'll spend the weekend playing games, eating and maybe a movie.  Got a box with all the games we like and we draw at random.

Good times......

That's fantastic! I haven't seen my son in about a year. Once we all get vaccinated, I'm going to do all those things. I hope you have a blast!

Nawal el-Saadawii, Arab author and women's rights icon, dies in Cairo

Famed Egyptian author Nawal el-Saadawi, a champion of women's rights who revolutionised discussions on gender in the Arab world, died Sunday at the age of 89, Al-Ahram newspaper said. Saadawi died in a Cairo hospital after suffering a long illness, her family said.

A prolific author who shot to fame with widely translated novel "Women at Point Zero" (1975), Saadawi was a fierce advocate for women's empowerment in Egypt's deeply conservative and patriarchal society. She is founder and president of the Arab Women's Solidarity Association[3][4] and co-founder of the Arab Association for Human Rights. She has been awarded honorary degrees on three continents. In 2004, she won the North–South Prize from the Council of Europe. In 2005, she won the Inana International Prize in Belgium, and in 2012, the International Peace Bureau awarded her the 2012 Seán MacBride Peace Prize.  With more than 55 books to her name including the taboo-breaking work "Women and Sex", paying particular attention to the practice of female genital mutilation in her society. She was briefly jailed by late president Anwar Sadat and also condemned by Al-Azhar, the highest Sunni Muslim authority in Egypt.

Saadawi's outspoken brand of feminism -- including campaigning against women wearing the veil, inequality in Muslim inheritance rights between men and women, polygamy and female circumcision -- gained her as many critics as admirers in the Middle East. In 1993, after constant deaths threats from firebrand Islamist preachers, Saadawi moved to Duke University in the US state of North Carolina, where she was a writer-in-residence at the Asian and African languages department for three years. She returned to Egypt and in 2005 ran for president but abandoned her bid after accusing security forces of not allowing her to hold rallies. She fell out of favour with many secular progressives later in life for her wholehearted embrace of general-turned-president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi's military overthrow of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013.

Her path-breaking, critical books published in dozens of languages also took aim at Western feminists including her friend Gloria Steinem and policies espoused by heads of state such as former US president George W. Bush's invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Saadawi's death coincides with Mother's Day celebrations in Egypt and across the Arab world. She divorced three times and survived by two children.

I have a new recipe. I just tried it last night but it turned out pretty well. I make cream puffs and eclairs so I'm an old hand at pate choux but I wanted something savory. I've heard about crab puffs all my life so I assumed they were made like cream puffs but I couldn't find a single recipe that looked right so I winged it. I took some cooked crab that I had and squeezed all the liquid out with paper towels. To make the puffs I added the water and butter to the pan but I also added finely minced green onion. When the pastry was almost done, before the adding of the second egg, I chopped up the crab and added it with the egg. I placed the puffs on a parchment lined cookie sheet using and medium/small ice cram scoop, baked as usual. They came out great! They can be made in advance and frozen for your next soiree. 🥂

Dr. Wimberly is fabulous! I've got a book, 'Crowns: Portraits of Black Women in Church Hats', that is full of beautiful portraiture and historical insight. At a local church I saw a play that was an adaptation of the book; very enjoyable and the actors wore their own hats with matching outfits.

Sounds tasty and easy.

The crab puffs I've had are the baked and cooled pâte à choux cut in half, filled with a crab filling. The other appetizer is puff pastry dough filled with cab filling -- fold and paint with egg wash, then bake.

 

After months of earthquakes, a long-dormant volcano in the southwest of Iceland erupted on Friday night, leading to dramatic videos and splendid red skies near the country’s capital city.

According to the Icelandic Meteorological Office, the eruption near Mount Fagradalsfjall, about 20 miles southwest of Reykjavik,. Though considered small, the eruption created a fissure about 1,640 feet long, and spewed more than 10 million square feet of lava, sometimes in fountains reaching heights of more than 300 feet.

It was the first volcanic eruption in this part of Iceland — the Reykjanes Peninsula, home to Reykjavik, where most of the country’s residents live — in 781 years. And it was the first time this particular volcano had gone off in about 6,000 years.

Iceland’s location along a series of tectonic plates — known as the Mid-Atlantic Ridge — has made it uniquely susceptible to activity. The country straddles two tectonic plates, which are themselves divided by an undersea mountain chain that oozes molten hot rock, or magma. Quakes occur when the magma pushes through the plates. 

Iceland is no stranger to volcanic activity. There is usually an eruption every four or five years because the island is in a region that is particularly susceptible to seismic activity. The most recent one, in 2014, was at Holuhraun, a lava field in the Icelandic Highlands. Earthquakes are a familiar experience, too; since 2014, the country registered between 1,000 and 3,000 earthquakes per year. But since December 2019, that number has dramatically increased, according to the New York Times; scientists are still working to understand why.

In the last week alone, Iceland experienced more than 18,000 earthquakes, with more than 3,000 on Sunday. At least 400 had taken place in the area of the volcano the day before the eruption — and that was a relatively calm day, according to Icelandic state meteorologists. Many of those earthquakes were undetectable to ordinary people, but some were of magnitude 3 and greater, so that they could be felt. The largest was a 5.7-magnitude quake on the morning of February 24, followed by a magnitude 5 tremor 30 minutes later.

Yep, that sounds like all the recipes I saw when I was looking. I was concerned the crab might be too wet but I really squeezed all the water out.

This was confusing me. I heard in one newscast the volcano hadn't erupted in 6000 years. Then in a diff newscast 800 years. And I was like, wow that's quite a difference.

The Reykjanes Peninsula has many dormant volcanos, and hadn't had a volcanic eruption in 781 years. The recent earthquakes and volcano eruption near Mount Fagradalsfjall (featured in the video), is the first volcanic activity in that location in 6,000 years. The Reykjanes Peninsula experiences regular tectonic activity, as charted in the link.

My apologies.

Actor George Segal dies at 87

George Segal, the banjo player turned actor who was nominated for an Oscar for 1966′s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” and worked into his late 80s on the ABC sitcom “The Goldbergs,” died Tuesday in Santa Rosa, California, his wife said. “The family is devastated to announce that this morning George Segal passed away due to complications from bypass surgery,” Sonia Segal said in a statement. He was 87.

George Segal was always best known as a comic actor, becoming one of the screen’s biggest stars in the 1970s when lighthearted adult comedies thrived. But his most famous role was in a harrowing drama, “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”, based on Edward Albee’s acclaimed play. He was the last surviving credited member of the tiny cast, all four of whom were nominated for Academy Awards: Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton for starring roles, Sandy Dennis and Segal for supporting performances. The women won Oscars, the men did not.

To younger audiences, he was better known for playing magazine publisher Jack Gallo on the long-running NBC series “Just Shoot Me” from 1997 to 2003, and as grandfather Albert “Pops” Solomon on the “The Goldbergs” since 2013.

“Today we lost a legend. It was a true honor being a small part of George Segal’s amazing legacy,” said “Goldbergs” creator Adam Goldberg, who based the show on his 1980s childhood. “By pure fate, I ended up casting the perfect person to play Pops. Just like my grandfather, George was a kid at heart with a magical spark.”

In his Hollywood prime, he played a stuffy intellectual opposite Barbra Streisand’s freewheeling prostitute in 1970′s “The Owl and the Pussycat;” a cheating husband opposite Glenda Jackson in 1973′s “A Touch of Class;” a hopeless gambler opposite Elliot Gould in director Robert Altman’s 1974 “California Split;” and a bank-robbing suburbanite opposite Jane Fonda in 1977′s “Fun with Dick and Jane.” Groomed to be a handsome leading man, Segal’s profile had been rising steadily since his first movie, 1961′s “The Young Doctors” in which he had ninth billing. His first starring performance came in “King Rat” as a nefarious inmate at a Japanese prison camp during World War II.

In “Virginia Woolf,” he played Nick, one half of a young couple invited over for drinks and to witness the bitterness and frustration of a middle-aged couple. Director Mike Nichols needed someone who would get the approval of star Elizabeth Taylor, and turned to Segal when Robert Redford turned him down. According to Nichols’ biographer Mark Harris, the director said Segal was “close enough to the young god he needed to be for Elizabeth, and witty enough and funny enough to deal with all that humiliation.” Segal died 10 years to the day after Taylor.

He rode the film to a long run of stardom. Then in the late 1970s, “Jaws” and other action films changed the nature of Hollywood movies, and the light comedies that Segal excelled in became passe. “Then I got a little older,” he said in a 1998 interview. “I started playing urban father roles. And that guy sort of turned into Chevy Chase, and after that there was really no place to go.” Except for the 1989 hit “Look Who’s Talking,” Segal’s films in the 1980s and 1990s were lackluster. He turned to television and starred in two failed series, “Take Five” and “Murphy’s Law.”

Then he found success in 1997 with the David Spade sitcom “Just Shoot Me” in which he played Gallo, who despite his gruff manner hires his daughter (Laura San Giacomo) and keeps Spade’s worthless office boy character on his payroll simply out of a sense of affection for both. Series co-star Brian Posehn was one of many paying Segal tribute Tuesday night. “I grew up watching him, total old school charm, effortless comedic timing,” Segal’s “Just Shoot Me” Posehn said. “Doing scenes with him was one of the highlights of my life, but getting to know him a little and making the legend laugh was even cooler.”

Throughout his long acting career, Segal played the banjo for fun, becoming quite accomplished on the instrument he had first picked up as a boy. He performed with his own Beverly Hills Unlisted Jazz Band.

Born in 1934 in Great Neck, New York, the third son of a malt and hops dealer, Segal began entertaining at the age of 8, performing magic tricks for neighborhood children.

He attended a Quaker boarding school in Pennsylvania and as an undergraduate at Columbia University organized “Bruno Linch and His Imperial Band,” for which he also played banjo. After graduating Segal worked non-salary at the New York theater Circle in the Square, doing everything from ticket taking to understudy acting. He studied drama with Lee Strasberg and Uta Hagen, and made his first professional acting appearance off-Broadway in Moliere’s “Don Juan.” It lasted one night. After a stint on Broadway in Eugene O’Neill’s “The Iceman Cometh,” he was drafted into the Army. Discharged in 1957, he returned to the stage and would begin getting small film roles.

In 1956 Segal married television story editor Marion Sobel and they had two daughters, Elizabeth and Polly, before divorcing in 1981. He married his second wife, Linda Rogoff, in London in 1982 and was devastated when she died of a stomach disease 14 years later. “It was a time when I said, `It’s not adding up; I don’t get it anymore,” he recalled to an interviewer in 1999. “With Linda dying, I lost interest in everything. I worked just to make a living. Acting, like life, became a joyless job.”

Eventually he reconnected with Sonia Schultz Greenbaum, who had been his girlfriend in high school some 45 years earlier. They talked on the telephone, sometimes as long as six hours, and were married just a few months after reuniting. “She helped me through the worst days of my life just listening to me unload,” Segal said in 1999. “It was magic.”

Sure! But you have to use cream puff paste:

Pre-heat oven to 425f

1/2 cup water

1/2 stick butter

1/2 cup flour

Two green onions

1/2 cup crab

In your smallest pan, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 stick butter and finely minced green onion. Medium heat, stir until the butter is melted. All at once add 1/2 cup flour. Stir until the flour is well incorporated. Take pan off the heat and let stand for 5 min. Add one egg and stir until the egg is well mixed in. Let stand another 5 min. Add crab and second egg. Stir well. Using a table spoon or small/medium ice cream scoop place the puffs on a parchment covered cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes if small. For larger puffs, reduce heat to 375f and give them another 15 minutes. 

This should yield about 9 -12 puffs. I've been think about doing this with cheese as well.

Haha! I didn't mean crab with cheese because I've got an irrational dislike of mixing fish with dairy. I was thinking of just cheese. Probably a combination of provolone and gouda.

Jessica Walter, the award-winning actress whose career spanned five decades, passed away in her sleep at home in New York City on Wednesday, March 24. She was 80.

Walter’s career included everything from a standout turn in Clint Eastwood’s directorial debut, Play Misty for Me, to The Flamingo Kid and her Emmy-nominated turns on Trapper John M..D. and Streets of San Francisco. For her performance as Lucille Bluth in Arrested Development, Walter earned yet another Emmy nomination (Outstanding Supporting Actress) and two SAG nominations.

Walter won an Emmy starring in Amy Prentiss, an Ironside spinoff in the mid-1970s about a young San Francisco police detective. She also voiced Malory Archer on FXX’s animated series Archer.

First saw her in Play Misty For Me at the drive in with my mom. Damn.

I was surprised to see you go Lydia Lunch. I was betting you wouldn't. Good thing I didn't wager with myself.

And Le Tigre! haha, I thought I was the only one who listened to them.

Happy Birthday, @OhioSongbird!

Today is my, & Y&R's, bday.

I need to watch Where's Poppa again. George Segal, Jessica Walter, with actors of that caliber I'm afraid to ask who's next. You know how celebrities tend to go in threes.

You are not alone.

I programmed music for snarling insomniacs in the olden daze.

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is stellar, and King Rat is excellent.

She was excellent in The Slums of Beverly Hills.

I finally got glasses yesterday! I have never needed them before but it's gotten to point where I really shouldn't have been driving. I don't need them for the computer or reading books, newspapers, etc. Anyway I can read Faith's texts now. Just in time for her to get screwed over again.

Larry McMurtry, a prolific, Pulitzer Prize-winning author and Oscar-winning screenwriter, has died at age 84. He was beloved for riveting and yet unsentimental depictions of the American West in books such as Lonesome Dove as well as for tales of family drama including Terms of Endearment.

In a statement, his representative Amanda Lundberg said McMurtry "passed away last night, on March 25 of heart failure at 84 years old surrounded by his loved ones who he lived with including long time writing partner Diana Ossana, his wife Norma Faye and their three dogs."

In all, McMurtry wrote more than 30 novels as well as over a dozen nonfiction works that spanned memoir, history and essays. He wrote over 20 screenplays and television scripts as well.

God, I feel like the Angel of Death today:

NEW YORK (AP) — Beverly Cleary, the celebrated children’s author whose memories of her Oregon childhood were shared with millions through the likes of Ramona and Beezus Quimby and Henry Huggins, has died. She was 104.

Cleary’s publisher HarperCollins announced Friday that the author died Thursday in Northern California, where she had lived since the 1960s. No cause of death was given.

Trained as a librarian, Cleary didn’t start writing books until her early 30s when she wrote “Henry Huggins,” published in 1950. Children worldwide came to love the adventures of Huggins and neighbors Ellen Tebbits, Otis Spofford, Beatrice “Beezus” Quimby and her younger sister, Ramona. They inhabit a down-home, wholesome setting on Klickitat Street — a real street in Portland, Oregon, the city where Cleary spent much of her youth.

Among the “Henry” titles were “Henry and Ribsy,” “Henry and the Paper Route” and “Henry and Beezus.”
