Wooden Shoe Rather Be Dutch?

Hello, dear friends and family!  Since my dad has been visiting this weekend while attending a conference in Scottsdale, it has been a fun weekend of family time a Dutch indulgence!  On Thursday evening, I made a modern take on a traditional Dutch meal, Boerenkool met Worst.  Usually, this is mashed potatoes with boiled kale and sausage.  I am not big on boiling kale, so I sauteed it and mashed it with sweet potatoes.  The sausage is beer-boiled with onions.  It was a fun and easy meal and quite tasty!  Friday, Dad attended his conference, Matt and I went to work, and Nancy, my step-mother, arrived by plane in the evening.  We went out to the Salty Sow in Paradise Valley - it was a pretty cool gastropub type restaurant.  I definitely overate!

"Boerenkool met Worst"
On Saturday, after Dad had been to his conference in the morning and I had more students, we went to the Musical Instrument Museum in Scottsdale.  I love this place and have been at least 4 (maybe 5) times in the (almost a) year since we've lived here.  Unfortunately, the museum closes at 5 PM, so we couldn't linger very long, but we saw a lot of great pieces and had a lot of fun!  We went out for Thai food in Old Town and then enjoyed an evening at home, where Nancy is trying to get me hooked on Breaking Bad.  I enjoyed the pilot, but I might put it off until I am all caught up on Game of Thrones.

Dad hits the gong!

Nancy enjoys the MIM interactive room.

Today has been the pinnacle of our Dutch-iness!  Nancy and I went for a hike this morning while Dad finished at the conference and then our cousins, the Vandenberghs, who live in Chandler, came up for poffertjes and brunch.  We ate poffertjes, little pancakes about the size of a half-dollar, with butter, jam, powdered sugar, and keukenstroop (super sweet Dutch syrup).  We had marzipan candies, bread with hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles), ginger cake, almond cookies, and more!  I am definitely feeling the food coma!  I know have a pantry full of more delicious Dutch treats to keep me fat for the next few months! (Or days, depending on my self-control or lack thereof...)  Now we are all relaxing on this beautiful Sunday afternoon and napping off the food.  What a fun weekend!

  25. If you want to watch sports content and additional movies and TV shows from non-Disney sources,disneyplus.com/begin you should consider the bundle option.The Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN+ bundle currently costs $14 a month. If you sign up for each of these services individually, the total would come out to $22 a month. This means that you can enjoy an $8 discount when bundling the three together.Existing Disney Plus or ESPN+ subscribers can upgrade to the bundle without having to cancel their current memberships. To upgrade and save, you can visit the Disney Plus bundle page here. It should be noted the version of Hulu included in the bundle by default still features ads. If you pay a bit more, however, you can upgrade to the ad-free or live TV versions of Hulu and still take advantage of the bundle discount. You can find detailed instructions for bundling different versions of Hulu with Disney Plus and ESPN+ here. Though the regular Disney Plus catalog is included with a standard subscription price, Disney occasionally offers early access to select titles that are still playing in theaters for an additional $30 fee. This option is called "Premier Access."The first Disney Plus Premier Access movie was "Mulan," released in September 2020. Disney followed up by releasing "Raya and the Last Dragon," "Cruella," Marvel's "Black Widow," and "Jungle Cruise" via Premier Access during 2021. All of these movies were eventually added to the Disney Plus catalog after about three months in Premier Access.

  26. Fox News, the influential cable network launched by Rupert Murdoch in 1996,Foxnews.com/connect holds a unique place in the American media landscape, particularly for those on the ideological right. While Democrats in the United States turn to and place their trust in a variety of media outlets for political news, no other source comes close to matching the appeal of Fox News for Republicans.Below are five facts about Fox News and how Americans feel about it. All findings are based on recent surveys from Pew Research Center’s Election News Pathways project, which focuses on what Americans hear, perceive and know about the 2020 presidential election and how these attitudes relate to how and where they get news. (You can use this interactive tool to explore the data from these surveys yourself.)On an ideological scale, the average Fox News consumer is to the right of the average U.S. adult, but not as far to the right as the audiences of some other outlets. As part of the November survey, the Center grouped the audiences of 30 news outlets on a scale based on the self-described ideology and partisanship of those who said they had gotten political news from each outlet in the past week. (You can read more about this classification system in this Q&A.) Based on this scale, the average audience member for Fox News is more likely than the average U.S. adult to be conservative and Republican. But the average audiences for four other outlets in the study – the Daily Caller, Breitbart News, and the Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh radio shows – are to the right of the average Fox News viewer.People who cite Fox News as their main source of political news are older and more likely to be white than U.S. adults overall. Americans ages 65 and older account for around four-in-ten of those who say their main source is Fox News (37%), compared with 21% of all adults, according to the November survey. And around nine-in-ten who turn to Fox News (87%) identify their race and ethnicity as non-Hispanic white, compared with 65% of all adults.

  27. So how do you use Plex? Let's go ahead and take a tour of the interface.Plex.tv/link We’ll start by explaining how to add your own movies, music, and photos to Plex.You’ll need to set up a drive on your PC with the movies, shows, and music you want to add. You’ll then connect Plex to that specific folder. Then Plex will scan that folder and pull the files into your library.When you go into your Plex app, you'll be able to pull those assets and watch them on-demand just like you would on any other streaming service. We think it’s pretty cool that you can also upload your own photos and music.Plex’s Live TV has 162 channels that you can scroll through. We’re not saying that these are all channels that you're going to want to watch. We really liked the live TV guide because it helped us find several shows I was interested in. That's a great sign that it does have stuff on here that's worth watching.Now, the music tab is a little bit frustrating for somebody like me simply because I don't use TIDAL. I use Spotify, and I wasn’t interested in signing up for TIDAL, so the music tab wasn't very effective for me. But if you are a TIDAL user, then you will find it very attractive.That brings me to another thing that we should talk about. There is a premium version of Plex. Should you get it? Is it worth it? The Plex Pass gets you offline downloads on mobile, so you can watch your stuff on the go when you're not connected to Wi-Fi.It also gets you data-usage statistics. If you have a lot of people using your server, then you can see who is using the most data and what they’re doing.You get a live TV DVR. So if you have an antenna that you have up in your window and you're getting live TV stations through that, you can actually DVR that on your Plex server. That's not a bad deal.
