Things I cook usually turn out pretty good, but I recently made a batch of butterscotch brownies that even the squirrels aren't touching. I tried using a glass pan--I know better, but my metal pan was unavailable. The middle ones were ok. Victoria ate them and tried to persuade a friend to try one by telling him they taste a LOT better than they look. Her friend still said no thanks. Fortunately I was making them for Friday so tonight I will just double up on production and all will be fine. I made butterscotch cookies instead and they aren't horrible. I have some regular brownies in the oven right now, now that my metal pan troubles have been ameliorated.

"Is their a difference between a collage and a univercity?"

A Univercity is a cheap storyline device used by hack writers to insure an excuse for whatever type of story they feel like writing without having to dream up new characters to fit the chosen milliue. Need a noir detective story, two blocks down and turn left onto "Crime Alley". Want a story of the mystical far east, no problem hop a taxi to "Pacific Rim Town". Need a story of the raw brutality of nature - head for a picinic in "Center City Park".




OK. I am *so* stealing that for one of my games.


On the other hand a collage is a piece of art created by ransacking, and destroying other pieces of art, graphic design, and often debris scavanged from trash bin and piecing them together in new and disturbing ways.

So while superficially there is a great deal of similarity, they are rather different.

huh. i'm trying my metal pan next time -- I have been having trouble with my glass pan. Never even thought of that.

Fortunately, my boy has lower standards than most squirrels I have seen.

(I'm not sure the lower standards thing is good *unless* you are talking about food only...)

We have problems with the metal pans -- for brownies and noodle kugel, the top layer of the pan sometimes sticks to the food. (We have thrown those pans out.)
