Samardzic: Talks Approach More Important Than Mediators

Not Balkans related but important:

Immigration /surge in U.S.

and Ingmar Bergman has died. I loved his films, the wierdness and the total Swedishness of them made them cool. I especially liked 'The 7th Seal' and was horrified by 'Virgin Spring'

If your mother was raised in the woods by Swedes then well, serious discussions of Ingmar Bergman is important ....

Goran Visnjic's Alleged Mistress Got Nasty Voice Mails from Mrs. Visnjic

Well it's nice and windy this morning, meaning much cooler. I have some soup started to use up some of the last of the meat and the other half of the cabbage.
Right now the beef, a little bacon, some onion slices and a clove of garlic are browning in the little wok, with some pickling spice. I am going to take it out when the bacon is cooked and the meat is browned on all sides, then put it in a pan with the cabbage and half a packet of cider mix and enough water to cover it, and add in the cabbage. There's some dehydrated vegetables I'm putting in to make it taste a little like Vegeta. Yesterday I had a bunch of visitors, we all hung out for a bit, and then one left, then one of them and I went off to Red Robin. They have something really nice, it's called a Burger Salad, it's a burger without the fixings on a nice salad, I had that with a side of their horse radish sauce, and the Ultimate Margarita, which was VERY nicely done.

The Turkish minisupermarket here sells Vegeta. It's good stuff but I suspect the MSG in it may have triggered a migraine when I had a bit too much one day.
I can't get Vegeta here, it has to be used in fairly small amounts even in a big soup. I don't become ill from M.S.G. and I have suffered migraine for most of my adult life. I have fewer of them now. In fact the last real bad headache I had was from dehydration. One of the blessings of getting older for female migraine sufferers is the drop off in hormones tends to lessen migraines. Male migraine sufferers seem to have the problem until WAY later in life. I knew a a priest who was in his 90s and still had migraines sometimes.
