I know….cats are taking over the internet. A certain Stewie that we got in November is also taking over my heart.
Today is the first time I am writing a post, since we added him to the family, without him sitting by my side (or in my lap, or batting at my legs). You see, he’s at the vet getting fixed. I’m 3 miles away worrying about him and missing that mischievous furball.
So, an adorable cat video is just the thing to give me a kitty fix. Aren’t these two hilarious?
My daughter always raves about the Blue Cheese Nachos that she gets when she skis at Burke Mountain in Vermont.
I thought they sounded so good that I wanted to give ’em a shot. I couldn’t decide whether to use potato chips or tortilla chips, so I did the only sane thing and used both.
I thought it would be fun to make side by side versions with slightly different toppings. So I did, and it was.
The potato chip nachos are blue cheese heaven with the additional welcome crunch from walnuts. The tortilla chip nachos, on the other hand are fun to look at have a terrific flavor boost from the three cheese ranch topping.

I’ve been meaning to play some Jim From The Moon for you for forever. Today is forever.
Jim describes his latest album, out last October, as psychelectric rock. Yes, that would be a good description for some of the tunes, such as ‘Sometimes’. But, there is also heartfelt folksy stuff like Jilted Lovers.
I love the spacey guitar on Futuredance and that bizarre riff 2 1/2 minutes in. Then there is the odd spoken word part at the end. My kind of bizarro tune.
‘Space, Flesh And Woe’ is Jim’s 9th album. Pretty impressive given that he is only in his mid-twenties. Go and check him out on the Jim From The Moon Website. You can link there to buy his music.
