Thomasina in Tom Stoppard's mind bending time warping play, ARCADIA, observes that when you stir rasberry jam into vanilla pudding it will first swirl in streaks but ultimately will turn the entire pudding pink. If you stir the pudding in the opposite direction, the jam will not separate back out again.

Chicago is Enticing
Take your camera to Chicago in the good old summertime and you will be rewarded with a shot around every corner or bend in the river. We will be heading in for another trip next week so I felt some pressure to get the last round of shots culled and stored. A short gallery follows, but if you need more, you can see all the pictures from the Chicago Architecture Foundation's river tour, the new Modern Wing at the Art Institute, a trip to Wrigley, a party at the Greek Islands, and some skyline and lakefront pyrotechnics at my Flikr site.
Jim and Jan arrive from rural Monmouth to marvel at the sights.
The new Trump Tower is pretty impressive.
The Cubs lost but the beerman batted a thousand.
Obama gazes down at the children playing in the fountains at Millennium Park
As the day slipped into twilight, we sipped martinis and feasted on the view at Carolyn and Gordon's condo.
