    The *real* aficionado doesn’t just stick to their own. 

    I visited a lavender farm in the mediterranean, just as  it was coming into bloom

    we had a tasting of the various workers’... shall we say, ‘crotte de nez’.  

    Best is mid-morning. Air no longer dewy. They begin to firm up, no longer wet, but not too dry as with late afternoon product. 

    The pollen, mixed with the lavender perfume, and free of the grittiness from the late afternoon dust, is most sought after. 

    You actually want the ‘crotte’ from the older field workers. They have more nose hair to gather it from. 

    The neophytes make the mistake of going after that of the younger more attractive field hands. The woman who collect the lavender. 

    But their lesser nose hair means the collecting must take place from further back, in the sinus cavity. Too wet, and often strung out on what is almost a tap root of sorts, going back to their soft palette. 

    An acquired taste, admittedly. 
    How is this taste "acquired" exactly?  Does one start as a child eating his own dried nasal mucus like so many of us do and, despite the ridicule of others and the attempted teachings of etiquette, move on to craving and expanding the piquancy of third party snot?  A type of slimy pica?

    Originally we were discussing accidentally revealed credentials, but I must admit this is a more interesting tangent.

    @JohnInCarolina that 14 hour tine zone deal is quite a challenge.  Hopefully your participation and presentations are slotted around that deal.  Enjoy!

    I just gave the opening remarks Frank.  It's just after 9am there.  

    My semi-plenary talk later on today will start at 9:20pm locally here.  Safe to say that's the latest I've ever given a technical talk, anywhere.

    Probably some kind of seasoning or rub is applied at some point.  I'm thinking Honey Hog?

    Potatoes baking in the egg, small steaks on deck, leaving broccoli for the wife to prepare.

    Also just kicked off a house refi @ 2.75%. We just bought this house last year and this makes a big difference in monthly payments. Aside from the payment savings we are skipping two months so I might actually be able to buy myself a new toy.

    I think everyone is a bit more cautious about who they let into their calls after all the recent Zoom sex-bombing and that insider job by Jeffery Toobin.....

    I'm kind of disappointed that "Toobin It" hasn't become a thing in the parlance of our time just yet.

    I met a helo pilot at the O-Club in Albuturkey, nice guy, and we started playing pool.  He was very short, and only slightly less-ugly than me (don't remember his branch, either Army or AF).  He started hitting on the most beautiful woman there, in between shots, and within 45 minutes or so left, mid-game, with her on his arm, to his room.  
    I won, by default, I guess.

    Trying to figure out this new Iphone my daughter gave me. Been a droid guy forever, but I think I will like it after I find out where everything is. The camera is pretty nice, but I need to watch a few videos on how to use all the options. my icloud is full and I have had it for one day....bummer

    I don't think its possible to figure out everything on an iPhone without a "Missing Manual" (which aren't written for Android phones, surprisingly).  I'm about halfway through the 707 pages of my copy, there's so much hidden away on these things.  Highly Recommended.  
    After about 15 minutes with my daughter, my missing manual. I tell her to go home so I can digest all the information she has provided. Then she proceeds to put a Tips icon on my phone for homework. Took about 2 hours today because it was cold as " insert bad word here." So far I am doing ok. Looks like Linux back in the day. It will take me a while before I need to read a book....LOL

    Speaking of O-Club, I have only been to a few, but the most fun one was in Kwajalein.  It got crazy rowdy.  So much so the next day I met a few folks who got bounced off the island on the next flight.
