Mother’s Day dessert recipe

I love to cook. It’s one of my favorite forms of relaxation. I thought I would borrow an idea from Rogi and post a recipe or two every once in a while. An advantage of not having Google crawling over my weblog page is that I can add recipes without worrying about search phrases such as hot oiled man or something similar.

Mother’s Day is coming up. If you’re entertaining I have the perfect dessert — Dream Cream Berries: fresh strawberries or other berries, pound cake, and Dream Cream.

If using strawberries, slice and sugar. Other berries don’t require sugaring, usually. Prepare your favorite pound cake recipe or buy one (if you must). Prepare one recipe Dream Cream.

To serve: Slice the pound cake, spoon berries on top of the cake and then smother in Dream Cream. Serve. Eat.

Dream Cream (US measurements):

1 pint whipping or heavy cream
1/2 cup powdered (confectioner’s) sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 individual serving sized container lemon yogurt (or raspberry or strawberry)

Whip the whipping cream until cream starts to thicken. Add powdered sugar and vanilla and continue beating until the whipping cream is very stiff. (Not too long, it’ll turn to butter.)

With a spatula gently fold in the yogurt until blended.

This is a simple, tasty, refreshing and fool proof dessert.

To make it perfect — add two squares of very dark, almost bitter but excellent quality chocolate to the side of the dessert plate before serving.


Paul, you look good!

Paul McCartney opened his new tour tonight in Oakland. I would have loved to see the show, but it was sold out 15 minutes after the tickets went on sale. There are tickets still available for San Jose — at about 800.00 a pop or more. Needless to say, I will have to pass.

I loved the Beatles, and I think Paul looks and sounds better than ever — at 60, no less!

I did see Paul McCartney when he toured with Wings. I watched him in the Seattle Kingdome, one of the many, many people holding up their lighters that ended up being a cover shot for an album. What a great show, and what a great showman. I sure wish I could have seen him tonight. It would have been fun.

Paul just goes to show — you can’t get old when you still rock n’ roll.


Moth to flame

When I was looking for a reference to something else, I accidentally stumbled on to this page. Such a pretty poem, and the background music suits, as does the use of DHTML.

Note: Music will play when the page loads. And it is very sentimental.

I just wanted to share this with you all because it’s nice.


Time for more noise

Time for more noise:

Oh this is number one
And the fun has just begun

Roll me over lay me down and do it again
Roll me over in the clover, roll me over lay me down and do it again

Sing louder! I can’t hear you!

New version of the words. Does anyone know where I can find a complete recording on the song, online? Regardless of the version?


The iMac

The iMac — nice product, strange package, seems to be a good value

Radio 8.0 — commercial alternative to Blogger, Greymatter, and Movable Type, positive reviews, good price

I’m happy to see folks excited about technology, again. This is a goodness.

However, I can’t stand the noise any longer! First we’re slammed with egg white iMacs; then we’re hit with 8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8!


I thought I would provide some noise of my own. Ladies, if you please:

Roll me over lay me down and do it again
Roll me over in the clover, roll me over lay me down and do it again
