Tuesday brain food ...
SAINT OF THE DAY: St. Catherine of Bologna 1413-1463 – patron of art and artists and against temptations
QUOTE OF THE DAY: Sometimes we used to eat once a day... chicken backs. You could buy four chicken backs for a quarter. – Raul Julia
Thanks to my friend Pam for sending out Word of the Day! Both of these bits of information seem oddly pertinent today. The first, because I think I could use a patron saint against temptations, and the second because it's a good reality check regarding personal economy and global food context. Things can certainly look different depending on which piece of the bird you get.
