Sowing Seeds, Old Fashioned But Still In Style

Garden

A hundred years ago, garden magazines were filled with illustrations of striped sweet peas, poppies in colors that looked like old silks, nigella in a blue so exquisite that the great English gardener Gertrude Jekyll secretly sprinkled them in her client’s gardens.

Jump Starting Corn Season

Food

Our long-awaited, much anticipated fresh corn season is around the corner. Even though it’s not the farm stand, farmer’s market ready treat, markets are already stocking very fresh produce from nearby states. We can jump the season a bit and whet our taste buds for the local corn with this delicious salad.

Chinese Peppercorn Unbanned

Food

The first Chinese food I can recall eating was with my best friend, Nancy. On paydays (I was selling Lincoln Mercury automobiles  bruising my hips as I ran into the fins of these handsome, late 1950s vehicles  on the showroom floor) we would trot over to Broadway  near Times Square to a scruffy little restaurant and sit next to the steamed-up plate glass window, eating glossy Cantonese dishes like shrimp and greens in a mild cornstarch sauce with sticky rice and hot tea.
Fabulous.

New Old-Time Radio On WHDD and WAPJ

Radio: Shaw Israel Izikson

One night in a living room office at Trinity Church seven radio actors and actresses gather around a table looking at their scripts.
The actors are looking to see if any adjustments are needed for the episode they are practicing called “Space Sentries.”
“Why did you call this character ‘Alex’?” Jandi Hanna asks Timothy Quirk.
“Because I didn’t know if it was going to be a male or female,” Quirk says. After Quirk tweaks the script a bit, the cast starts practicing the episode.

Forcing For Free Flowers

The Lazy Gardener

Free flowers – seriously – for the next four weeks.  
Right before the gardening season really starts up and we get lost in the battles – us versus the moles and voles; us versus various blights; us versus the neighbors and their blowers – it’s nice to know that certain shrubs are offering flowers for anyone willing to do a bit of clipping.
The technical term for this is forcing but that just makes it sounds complicated and scary, a favorite trick of the snooty gardener, when it is quite the opposite.

Solitude By Choice Is Good

Life

There’s this thing called hygge, a Scandinavian word that means something along the lines of wholesome cozy indoorsiness, which has become something of a cultural fetish over the past few years. Peruse any winter Anthropologie catalogue and you’ll see what I’m talking about: rosy-cheeked models lounging in cashmere turtlenecks in front of a roaring fire, balancing a steaming cup of something on one knee and a sleeping dog on the other.

The Wedding Showcase: A Moment For The Beautiful Mother Of The Bride

In 2014, Kathy Weigel, a Brooklyn mother of two daughters — and a longtime summer resident of Lakeville — stepped out of an upscale department store in Manhattan with a shopping bag filled with Armani and feeling sorely unhappy about it. In the grand scheme of things, not the worst problem to have. Weddings though, as many of us know, can be a strange time in one’s life, even when you’re not the bride.

Curling’s Strange Allure

Curling

Curlers talk about “delivering” the stone across the 45 meters of pebbled ice to the target area. The thrust comes from the legs, as the curler pushes off from the hack, or foothold, and glides forward like a fencer lunging at his opponent. The hand that guides the 44-lb rock grasps it lightly, “like holding a chick,” says a curling instructor at the Norfolk Curling Club, and only at the last moment gives the handle a slow clockwise or counter-clockwise rotation to keep it on course.
