Extracting the brain through the nostrils (TMI?)

It was a bit TMI for The Commander whenever I read “Mummies Made in Egypt” (by Aliki) to my older beach urchin. It was a little “iffy” for me too but the beach urchin ate it up seemingly without any issue.

Imagine my surprise when this very thing was mentioned in a book I just finished. The first in a trilogy of The Durrells in Corfu. I didn’t realize this was a memoir when I started reading it so I had a little trouble processing it. Now that I know there is a series, I think I will add that to my list of things to watch by myself. I’m not sure it would be the GG’s cuppa.

Here on the shores of Gitchee Gumee, the temperature never made its way outta the 50s today. I am feeling for a facebook/childhood friend who lives in Las Vegas where the temps have been 112 for a couple days now. How does anyone cope with that kind of heat? The highest temperature I can remember dealing with is 108. It was summer 2012 on the Planet Ann Arbor and I got into the Ninja to drive home from Cubelandia and she reported that temp. At least her a/c was working. My trusty Landfill Chitchen indoor/outdoor thermometer got STUCK at 108 that day. The next day it was MUCH cooler and I remember squinting at the thermometer wondering why the indoor temp was 77 (which felt accurate) but the outdoor was still 108. We have fancy new thermometers nowadays.

The pic is from yesterday when a storm blew through to the west of the moominbeach. I can’t call it a plassover because plassovers cross farther north across Whitefish Bay into Canananada. But this one missed us. I guess it plassed over in a different direction.

We had Copper River salmon (grilled) and friends tonight. Friends being brown rice, asparagus (purportedly local) with scallions (definitely local), and corn on the cob (very unlikely local but pretty good).

    Dinner–delicious! I love the photo too; clouds are so artistic. I read the whole Amelia Peabody series, so I knew about the mummies. I can’t imagine that kind of heat. When we had the heat dome in 2021, I didn’t yet have my heat pump, just a portable a/c unit. It was miserable. With a/c and those temperatures, people would have to stay inside all the time which would drive me BONKERS. I could never live there.
