the inn at brandywine falls

if you get to the cuyahoga national park in northern ohio, you will want to see brandywine falls.

while there, you may want to stay at a bed and breakfast built in 1848, the inn at brandywine falls.  you will be able to walk to the waterfall and to trails.  

not a place for children, the inn has a formal feel with antiques and period dresses as decorations.  breakfast is served with classical music and delicious homemade treats.  there's no rush.

the bright sunlight line runs under the bridge, through the creek, 
over the path, and

up the hill.

university golf team indoor practice

the ohio state university golf course has a new building.
there is an indoor practice range, a weight room, a small kitchen,

locker rooms (in school colors, of course), and

a place to relax.
winter golfing will be a joy.

educational beauty.

waiting while the dogs bark

early sunday morning, arriving for a scheduled walk, there's no answer to my knock.
the dogs hear me, and start up the alarm.

the big old house waits and they do their work.
soon friends are joining me in the fresh air.

canine beauty.

butter is back

remember when mark bittman,  ny times writer and food expert, was advised to become a vegan to fix his health?  he compromised and limited himself to that way of eating during the day. this book and its accompanying cookbook are a result.  the news is that, as mark said in a ny times article, butter is back.

a meta-analysis published in the journal annals of internal medicine found that there is no evidence to support the notion that saturated fat increases the risk of heart disease.  as bittman says, you can go back to eating butter, if you haven't already.  he goes says the real villains in our diet are sugar and ultra-processed foods.  

this reminds me of a story about julia child.  someone - dean ornish?  andrew weil? was creating a cookbook with very low fat, vegetarian entrees, and invited celebrity chefs to participate.  julia turned them down, saying it was against her cooking and eating philosophy.  

let's try this - simple food, with few ingredients, more vegetables, and meat from a local farmer.  

edible beauty.
