Mimsy Were the Borogoves

Food: Recipes, cookbook reviews, food notes, and restaurant reviews. Unless otherwise noted, I have personally tried each recipe that gets its own page, but not necessarily recipes listed as part of a cookbook review.

42 Astoundingly Useful Scripts and Automations for the Macintosh

Work faster and more reliably. Use Perl, Python, AppleScript, Swift, and Automator to automate the drudgery of computer use. Add actions to the services menu and the menu bar, and create drag-and-drop apps.

Use simple scripts and make your Macintosh play music, roll dice, and talk to you. Create ASCII art from your photos. There’s a script for all of that in my new book, 42 Astoundingly Useful Scripts and Automations for the Macintosh.

Eating and buying food around San Diego

Jerry Stratton, July 4, 2006

After reading about a new Latino supermarket that recently opened in San Diego, I went looking to see what other kinds of large markets San Diego has. The “places” section of my own Jerry’s Diner Revue hasn’t had a new entry in quite a while. While I’ve moved some of the cookbooks over here to Mimsy, I haven’t moved any of the restaurants over. The only section that I continue to update is the Dining After Midnight section listing restaurants that stay open past midnight in the San Diego region.

I never did start that list of interesting markets I wanted to add to the revue. Fortunately, someone else has a much better San Diego market/restaurant/food blog than I could ever imagine creating. The blogger at mmm-yoso!!! “explores food” in San Diego and wherever else they travel.

The most interesting section for me is the Markets & Grocers section. Among the markets they review are some of my favorites

And of course there are many I’ve never heard of and will have to visit!

There are also a lot of good reviews of restaurants and other places to get food. If I’d been paying attention to this blog I wouldn’t have missed St. Spyridon’s Greek Festival this year. They’re definitely on my RSS list now.
