Monday after the Oscars

I missed the Oscars last night because ABC doesn't stream video outside of the USA. Oh well. I read that Natalie Portman won best actress. I liked her role in Black Swan, but I didn't think that it was the best performance of an actress in 2010. Also, I saw The Kids Are Alright on one of my 9 trips to and from Puerto Rico in 2010. I thought the ending was unsatisfying. I would never have thought one of the actors from that movie would have been nominated for an Oscar! The movie was on par with The Jonseses, another one I caught flying over the Atlantic.

Glad Batman picked up his first. "I'm not wearing hockey pads!"

One more week till Ambar Comes

Only one week till Ambar gets here. I've been working hard these last three weeks trying to get a lot of leg work done on my project before Ambar gets here. We'll want to go out and spend time together in the city in March and April.

It's official, we're going to Switzerland on March 12-15th. April we'll be in Milan, Italy for Easter. But I'll post something on that when the time comes.

I eat a lot of soup in the house. It costs about 70 cents to buy a can of beef soup. I pour that soup into a pot and add another can of water and add salt to dilute the taste of water. I add a bag of fresh carrots, celery, and two other vegetables that I don't know the name of.  I add some tomato sauce to the broth too. That makes a pot of soup that can be eaten every day over the weekend. We'll see how Ambar likes it. She'll probably have some smart twist to put to it, which is always welcomed.

I want a chili recipe. I want some chili before it warms up. You gotta eat chili when it's cold outside! And we got chilly days here in Hamburg. Email me some simple chili recipes!

Superbowl Sunday

It's SuperBowlSunday! I'll try to find the game in a sports bar in Hamburg. I saw it last year. We are about seven hours ahead of US central time, so the game should start after midnight here. Fun.
