Julia Makes Dinner

First dinner on the porch of the summer season. Went with kind of Italian theme with caprese salad, olives, Italian bread, olive oil for dipping, summer sausage, and a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. Tiramisu is for dessert later on.

Weird how that shit works.
Ultimately, I think I want more conversation. The introvert in me loves social media because it allows me form a complete thought and reply to wha…

[UPDATED VERSION!] The Trouble With The Electoral College
