The Best Tee Time According To Your Body

An interesting read, if you believe this New York Times article, Early Birds Less Likely to Catch the Birdies.

In summary, your body says the best time to play golf is 10 am or 4pm.

My personal experience jives with this.  I've generally struggled in very early morning play, and my hole-in-one happened between 5-8 pm, as mentioned in the article.

I ran across this Redbook article, and thought you might enjoy it, Tips to Survive Theme Parks with Your Kids.

In a nutshell:
  1. Choose parks wisely, if there are strict size limits on rides.
  2. Strategize wait times.
  3. Coordinate a complementary mix of little kid and big kid activities.
  4. Avoid buying too many toys.

USDA - Food Jargon Gone Wild

Uhhh, just when you thought you understood the basic things in life, along comes bureaucracy and complex jargon.

Check-out the USDA's jargon around food security, insecurity, and hunger:
USDA - Food Security in the United States: Definitions of Hunger and Food Security

. . . I guess that means you don't want to experience "very low food security" tonight!

About Bitter Eggplant - and more

EggplantImage via Wikipedia
We had dinner over at friends last night. They served a delicious tomato-based eggplant dish. It wasn't bitter at all, so the whole table of guests launched into a conversation about eggplant selection, prepping, and cooking.

After a quick (not exhaustive) Google search, I think these are my takeaways:
  • bitterness is getting bred out of eggplants, therefore, salting eggplant is becoming less important
  • selecting young, not overripe eggplant is good, because older eggplant and those with more seeds tend to be more bitter
  • don't let your eggplant sit around too long before cooking it. Eat it closer to the time of purchase, or it too can get more bitter.
Opinions tend to be varied, and I found this to be most helpful and interesting to me:
