This is my 400th blog post here at Kosher Samurai!
My first post was on May 18, 2011.
I’ve been having a great time ever since writing and putting up my thoughts, ideas, musings, etc.
Check out my ‘sister blog,’ Vampyre Fangs!
And here is a shameless plug for my Twitter experiment, a journal entry style post apocalyptic novel, The Great Dead North.
I hope you enjoy reading my stuff as much as I love writing it.
Until my next post, thank you for reading my blog.

Great recipe from Fashion Food and Flirts!
A One-Pot Wonder. That is the best way to describe this heartwarming curry. Miraculously rich in flavour, magically packed full of spices and wizardly soothing with heavenly salmon and potatoes.
Ingredients (serves 4)
I’m paraphrasing somewhat…
But not by much…
He was talking about freedom…
He was talking about Scotland…
He was talking about ridding themselves from oppression…
But he may as well have been talking about…
Eating bacon is practically a constitutional right.
It’s practically a religion.
Yes. It’s true. These people had a ‘bacon theme’ wedding.
Why, do you ask? Well…
It sounded like a really good way to tell the world they are committed to each other…
And to bacon.
Thanks, as always, to my friends and readers who send me bacon-related photos.
I couldn’t have done it without you. Or people very much like you.

In my Twitter novel, The Great Dead North, two characters (the Narrator “Me” and his wife, “Callie-Ann” [aka Cally] from Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina) have the following exchange one morning…
Me: I take it with that bat-like hearing of yours, you heard me & Shara talking. Cally: I did. Me: And? Cally: I married the best Dad ever!
Me: Thenk yew. Cally: Oh, please. Me: Not even close? Cally: Honey? When you try to talk Southern… it only makes you sound more Northern.
Me: If a couple moved to The South & had kids, would the kids be Southern? Cally: If a cat had kittens in the oven, would they be biscuits?
I sigh heavily. Callie-Ann grins. Cally: You got Dixie Envy, that’s what you got. Me: Dixie Envy? Cally: The clearest case I have ever seen.
Me: Any cure? Cally: Well, marrying me & putting a bun in my oven is definitely a step in the right direction, I can tell you that right now
It’s kinda like a similarly-phrased concept in Freudian psychoanalysis which, in contemporary culture, sometimes refers inexactly or metaphorically to women who are presumed to wish they were men (or at least have their equipment).
I’ve gone on at some length as to why I love The South and I think it is fair to say that what spurs that love on is, in part, Dixie Envy.
It’s been a good many years since I was way down yonder in the land of cotton.
I wish I was in Dixie.
I miss it.
I love it.
I envy it.
