This is the last daily picture for 2016: one photo each day (366/366). It seemed appropriate to show snacks to ring in the New Year. In the bowls, from left to right: salsa, mixed nuts, ranch dip, and chex mix. The salsa and chex mix are home made. The chex mix is well seasoned, unlike the premade kind, and includes a bit of cayenne to liven things up.

 

Happy New Years everyone Hope you have a good year ahead.

Cheese Snacks - perverseness and predicability.

Cheese Snacks

Smartfood

Pirates booty

Combos (all three flavors, cracker and pretzel)

Cheezits

Cheese doodles (crunchy and puffy)

Even chex mix

  

I am always

And instantly

Attracted to

Trusting of

And at ease around

People that eat them

Especially girls

 

But its not like

The way you are

when you are comfortable

Around people that will pee

Or pick their nose around you

Cuz that's just dropping expectations.

 

Its different

Its more like

It denotes a mental shift

A change of perception

That I can identify with

Be comfortable around

And sympathetic to.

Its possible to meet somebody and immediately and instantly identify

And recognize a common mental deficiency / proficiency.

 

Because at some point

They had to say to themselves

This

Is not cheese

This is not cheese product

And defintely not cheese food

But despite it all

I will eat these

And be comfortable in this little cheesy salty lie.

Like sex with a prostitute

You need to accept

That's its not real

And once you do

It opens a whole realm of substituted psuedo experiences

Or so I have heard.

 

So you meet these people at bodega counters

Movie snack lines

And subway convenience stands

Like people glancing at each other

Sideways

Across the stage in a strip club

Or across the counter in a brothel

This is probably fake

 

And they are ok with that.

And I'm ok with them.

And that's why I am comfortable

With people who eat cheese snacks

Because maybe I'm not all I'm cracked up to be

And they'll have to look at me

One day

And say

I know

But I like him anyway.

National Cereal Day March 7

 

Cereal is celebrated and eaten today! Cereal, in general, may be a name for any grain, such as wheat, barley, oats, or corn. But since the end of the nineteenth century in America, cereal has usually meant breakfast cereal—now the most popular breakfast food in the country. It gained popularity at that time, as a healthier alternative to other foods. Until the 1860s, breakfast was dominated by eggs, bacon, and sausage. Reformers began preaching that eating too much meat was both physically and spiritually harmful, and cereal was looked at as a nutritious remedy of sorts.

 

The first American cooked cereals were corn-mush porridges that had been adapted from Native Americans. Quaker Oats, made from hulled oats, was created in 1877. Cream of Wheat appeared in 1894. The first cold cereal was invented by Dr. James Caleb Jackson, and was made of hard, bland bran nuggets that had to be soaked overnight and were hard to digest. It was called granula.

 

John Kellogg, head of the Battle Creek Sanitarium in Battle Creek, Michigan, gave grains to his patients, and then created packaged cereals. He first called his cereal granola, but then changed its name to Granose, as it was too close in name to Jackson's granula. He later made Granose flakes. In the 1890s, John Kellogg, along with his brother William, made boiled wheat and inadvertently left it out overnight and found it was stale the next morning. They then rolled it and saw it made flakes. They tried it with corn and saw the same thing happened. Their new creation was Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, one of the most popular and enduring breakfast cereals.

 

After suffering a nervous breakdown, Charles William Post went to Kellogg's sanitarium in 1893. Subsequently, he started his own breakfast foods company, and in 1897 started selling Grape-Nuts, made of wheat and malted barley. He started selling Elijah Manna in 1904, but after the name was criticized, he started calling them as Post Toasties in 1906.

 

In 1892, Henry Perky, a lawyer from Denver, traveled to Watertown, New York, and along with William Ford, discovered a process to press wheat shreds into biscuits. He called them Shredded Wheat. They were bought out by the National Biscuit Company in 1928, a company now known as Nabisco.

 

Wheaties were created accidentally in 1921. A Minneapolis health theorist name Mennenberg spilled gruel on a hot stove and found it made a crisp wheat flake. Washburn Crosby Company, later known as General Mills and the subsequent identity to the radio and television station WCCO, bought the rights and introduced Wheaties in 1924. General Mills introduced a corn-puff cereal called Kix in 1937, and a ring-shaped oat cereal named Cheerioats in 1941; their name was changed to Cheerios in 1945.

 

Shredded Ralston may not be a familiar breakfast cereal name today, but that is the original name of Wheat Chex, introduced by the Ralston Purina Company of St. Louis in 1935. They were followed by Rice Chex in 1950, and by Corn Chex in 1958. It wasn’t soon after that people started using these cereals as a snack mix, which today with many variations and ingredients, is known as “Chex Mix”.

 

The first sweetened cereal, Ranger Joe Popped Wheat Honnie, was introduced in 1939, and the idea of cereal as solely a health food changed. This began the trend of sweetened cereals being marketed to children. Radio and television ads began being used to popularize cereal, and cartoon characters were introduced. Some cereals were also named after cartoon or movie characters, such as Count Chocula and Frankenberry, and who could forget Tony the Tiger with “They’re G-r-r-eat!” for the Frosted Flakes cereal.

 

In the 1960s, breakfast cereals began being criticized for having little nutritional value on their own, and vitamins and minerals began being added. Sugar in children's cereals was also cut back. There also was an increase in interest in natural grain cereals—those without cane sugar or additives. Although, a lot of them did have honey, brown sugar, raisins, or other dried fruit.

 

About half of Americans start their day with a bowl of cereal. Annual sales of breakfast cereal are 7.7 billion dollars, and 2.7 billion boxes of cereal are sold each year. With so much cereal being eaten, it is only fitting that there is a day to celebrate it!

 

How to Observe

Celebrate the day by eating cereal! Try sampling some of the best breakfast cereals of all time. Eat cereal plain, have it with milk, or use it to make something, such as Rice Krispies Treats. If there ever was a day to eat cereal for every meal, this is it!

 

Here, Lloyd gets ready to have some Corn Flakes which Mr. Wu has brought to the table. But guess who else has come with his bowl!

Dill pickle ranch-flavoured Chex mix/bits & bites?! It can be done! Now that summer is here you can even make it in the crockpot which made it perfectly: www.suziethefoodie.com/dill-pickle-crockpot-bits-bites/

I threw out the remaining regular wheat bagels and bought bagel thins.

Throwing out perfectly good food is not something I do.

So, I have to tell myself that it's not perfectly good.

It's bad. Bad for me. Bad bad bad.

240 - 120 calories - 120 calories times howmanydays.

About a half a pound a month there.

It's just an excuse to grow chives and basil in my office, really.

 

Carrots, celery, green beans, green peppers, brocoli, cucumber, sugar snap peas.

Carrot ginger dressing, fritos bean dip, hummus, and walden farms thousand island to dip in.

Lunch will be a light freebird's burrito.

Dinner will be vegetable soup.

 

The fridge at work is full of vegetables and low-cal dips.

The dips add calories, if you're not careful.

Hence, walden Farms. Zero-cal. All chemicals, sure, but zero-cal, right?

The fridge at home fills up on the weekend with the good stuff, too.

I try to remember to do a fish sandwich or two every so often, keep the good proteins going, even though animals are animals.

The more I study, the more I learn.

 

The local stores stock some Walden Farms stuff.

But not all of it.

So, I ordered some samplers from their website.

It's all good stuff.

I will get more.

 

Yeah, the scale shows a bounce off of 235.

I'm used to this.

Keep to the routine.

Been walking 30 minutes in the morning and more than that when I get home.

Yeah, I hurt like a son of a bitch after, but it's making a difference.

I can't walk faster or at an incline much.

So, I walk longer.

As long as I have things to watch while I walk, I'll be fine.

 

Left the laptop's power cord at home.

We'll see how long before I use the Macbook to fire up SL for a bit.

Just for a bit... that's all.

 

Raisins are back i nthe vending machine.

Use my credits to stock up again until they run out.

 

There's 2 packets of Chex Mix in the hall.

Well, one. I may have grabbed it. And ate it.

The other calls out to me.

I should smash it and throw it away.

Or sneak it into a team conference room bin.

Temptation sucks.

 

Blanka suggested The China Study.

I'm reading it. Slowly.

It's a lot of science, which, yes, I'm a scientist.

Doesn't mean I enjoy it.

But I need to read this to reinforce to myself why I'm doing all of this.

Plant-based full vegan may not be entirely achievable, but the closer I come to that goal, the better I will be.

 

There's also the mental issue, too.

Just gotta let go of some stuff.

Perhaps I need to see a lot less names with sharp edges.

 

I met Aretha once.

Not sure when or where.

I forget a lot of those things.

I forget a lot of things.

It's not a good feeling, not remembering everything.

And remembering a lot of the bad.

But I remember that I met her.

The experience was unpleasant.

Not sure when and where, but it was unpleasant.

She was rude and bossy.

But not nasty. Was she?

Nasty takes energy, rude and bossy can be passive and petulant and sullen.

Like some winded unwell famous fat woman.

You know how that goes, an unwell famous fat woman.

Which, if you're unwell and fat, okay, I get it.

I'll get out of your way. How dare I say thank you for your music.

Dom Deluise was famous and fat.

He was beautiful and pleasant and kind and generous with his laughter.

Even though he was unwell and in pain a lot.

He fucking loved life and people.

Lord, make me more like Dom and less like Aretha.

We're all dead in the end, really.

 

I really like the primary development team I'm on.

The secondary one isn't so bad, either.

The third team I'm on is on hiatus, and the responsibilities fall to two sub-teams.

One is delightful to work with. The other is led by someone who makes it painful and unpleasant.

They appear to have chosen a time that no writer can "meddle" with that team's work.

Which means it'll remain disorganized as shit and unhelpful.

Oh well.

 

Headaches again.

Not good.

 

Cleaned up the friends list a little.

Probably won't go all full psycho massacre on it.

But I get in my moods. And I said that the last time.

I feel like I've been collected more than respected.

That needs to be fixed.

I turned off my offline and online toasts.

And I set all names to appear in white.

Friends, non-friends, and enemies alike.

It's all just noise, really.

 

I know it's wrong, but when I take a huge dump, feel good about it.

Especially when I know I'm eating light and healthy.

It lets me know I'm making progress.

And, no, I'm not going to play games with drugs or other things that will fill the bowl quicker.

I'm doing my best to keep this on the level.

In case you haven't heard, Lux is a kick ass bar in Rochester's Southwedge Neighborhood. Come eat some Chex mix, sit by the outdoor fire, look at some cool art, all while enjoying a delicious cocktail. There is never a cover charge! We don't have a TV. We have a huge backyard (with a fire-pit for those chilly Rochester nights), a kickin' Juke Box, lots of silly board games, and a swanky pool table. AT LUX, EVERYONE IS WELCOME! We don't care about the color of your skin or your hair. We don't care if you are gay, straight, (or both). We don't care if you love Allah, Buddha, Jesus, Or none of the above.

Lux Lounge is an alternative bar in the South Wedge, similar to what you'd find in a city like Portland or NYC. The atmosphere is very laid-back and conducive for conversation. Weekly specials are identified on the Lux website.

 

Lux offers arts & crafts nights, as well as benches and a hammock out back during warmer months. In the winter there is a fire and board games inside, and not to mention a juke box.

 

Though not an actual gay bar, Lux prides itself on being GLBT friendly and generally accepting of all kinds of people. rocwiki.org/Lux

 

Artist Jay Lincoln painted the large mural on the side of the Lux Lounge. He calls it "Sunflower Party" with the faces of a bunch of people he says doing South Wedge stuff. They are drinking coffee, eating cheesecake, strumming guitars all neighborhood focal points. cityliving.whec.com/news/arts-culture/avant-garden-south-...

 

The mural is part of the new Avant Garden Project in Star Alley Park.

 

Arch Gateway -- Artist John Grieco made the wrought iron arch at the entrance. You'll find sunflowers on it too. He wanted this 11 by 10 foot sculpture to reflect the neighborhood. "Having lived in the South Wedge, it's a very warm neighborhood, a very classic neighborhood. Turn of the century homes and pre-turn of the century, so I wanted a classic look," said Grieco. cityliving.whec.com/news/arts-culture/avant-garden-south-...

It was relieving, late last night, to realize how easy it would be to throw my lunch together!

 

I had been at a friend's house all day... as I quickly listed off all I had to do to create this lunch, he did a double-take, and I had to repeat myself a little slower... it was good for a laugh at least!

Made two turns of Chex Mix today.

Better than Chex Mix

 

Have you ever had homemade Chex Mix? That used to be the only option before it became ubiquitous gas station fare. As always, homemade is best

 

This pattern mix makes me think of 1960s autumn vomit. That doesn’t make a great title, so I’m going with “Ultimate Fall Mix” instead. The pattern mix is vomit or ultimate depending on your taste.

Tucson, Arizona — In my family, we have a holiday tradition of making, serving, and eating a party mix made up of the Chex products with nuts and pretsels. This photo is what happens when I am organizing photo gear and enjoying some of the blessings of the season.

 

I am not well-versed in the process of focus-stacking in Adobe Photoshop, but this is isn't my first attempt either. This is a composite of maybe 20 images to deepen the depth of field.

June 29 - Had the possibility of progress yesterday, ruined by a bag of trail mix. I need to get smarter about this shit, because I feel like I'm running out of time. Increasing incline and walking at 2mph to see if this helps the burn.

 

This month has been a total failure. I have so many excuses, but no reasons. Month started around 223, and I'm barely going to make it back there tomorrow.

 

What a mess.

 

I know what it's like to hope that the next month is change, but to do nothing about it.

 

I must make changes, and get back to my progress.

 

Or I will realize my worst nightmare, which is to lose control, do all of this for nothing, and get all fat and bloated and sick yet again.

 

Which is why trail mix and chex mix are bad, while veggies are good.

just outside the window as we ate artisanal Chex mix

INGREDIENTS:

 

3 cups Corn Chex® cereal

6 cups Rice Chex® or Chocolate Chex® cereal

1 bag (12 oz) white vanilla baking chips (2 cups)

1/3 cup coarsely crushed peppermint candy canes (14 miniature, unwrapped)

 

DIRECTIONS:

Some of the various treats I make at Christmas - these were some from 2013. And it's getting about that time to do it again. I can't wait!

 

People always ask me if I eat them all myself. No, I don't. I make gift baskets of these treats and give them out to family and friends. Of course, I do have to sample every batch to make sure they turned out right. Can't go giving untasty food away!

I still got it! I found my old scooter while wondering the house looking for photo ideas. and Yes, yes I can do a mean tail whip! :D

 

oh and want to know one of the most disappointing things ever!?? When you eat a snack size(you know the little bags) of Chex Mix and there is not ONE freaking "rye crisp!" Thats just bogus!! :P

 

Much Love,

T-Sil

 

SB-600 Camera Right triggered with SC29 cord

June 30 - Went overboard with the chex mix, and I regret every bite. I can't control it anymore, and unless I get my shit together, I'm going to be stuck at 224 for even longer.

 

This month has been a failure. So many regrets, and I don't feel like I am making progress at all.

 

I know I can do this. I've done it before, and despite age and change in metabolism, I should be able to do it again.

 

The pain is becoming more persistent, but as long as I just keep going, it'll be worth it.

 

Something has to change. And that's me.

mmm... comfort food! (well somewhat, some of it!)

 

my bachelor dad would make mac&cheese with green beans & bread crumbs. makes me all warm & fuzzy!

It was boring in journalism so me and my elbow buddy decided to play with our food... iPhone camera is alright, and the Photoshop application too, don't forget the awesome flickr app... Technology,

Wonder who thought this up ? A sunny-side up egg on Chex Mix ? Mind you - in the fifties, Chex Mix had to be made with your own different Chex cereals, butter, garlic powder , etc... There was no prepackaged.

I'm excited to share this late 80's Doo Dads box, as it's the latest to join my Nabisco Doo Dads snack box collection.

 

This also allows me to present a nice 30-year-evolution of the packaging design for this brand.

 

Doo Dads was a childhood favorite snack of mine and as such it's been a fun one to go back and to try to collect.

Just like cabooses represnted the end of a train, this picture represents the end of a year. For me, a year of diving head first back into the past time of chasing trains and the photography of them after a 17 year absence. Meeting many new people and growing friendships that will go on for years. I can't remember a year that I was called so many names, and by some I never personaly met. I have truly enjoyed my come back and the constant challange of tring to keep up with the photography skills of those like Billy, Drew, and many other of you Flickr Goobs (still can't believe I made Explore). The day road trips with Kenny (still feel bad about spilling your Spicy Bold Chex Mix ALL over your truck), the almost daily calls or texts to and from "The System" (ya'll know who you are). Getting schooled by many of you who bring me up to speed on what train runs where, the numbers of them, when they are supposed to run, and how we do this sport of chasing trains at this day and age. Thank you all for a great year and looking forward to 2012.

I am sure we have all thought these words in our heads at one time or another while watching the nightly news but it was cool to actually see it expressed like this, in this setting

Today I went on a hike with my friends Brennan and Sarathi, it was a day filled with offroading, strange looks, rice krispies, chex mix, french hip-hop, puddles, logs, new zealand snails, nature, and just a good time. We were out for about six hours, and there could not have been a better way to leave. The sunset was absolutely beautiful, and unfortunately I don't have any pictures that truly do it justice... but it was truly serene.
