Are you a book hoarder? There's a word for that.

Not sure if I’ll be able to read all the books I have collected over the years but I can’t dump them. They are my “precious.”

Emily Brontë, also known by her nom de plume Ellis Bell (younger sister of Charlotte Brontë, also known by her nom de plume Currer Bell) (and older sister of Anne Brontë, also known by her nom de plume Acton Bell), was born on this date in 1818.  Wuthering Heights, that sterling exemplar of a gothic novel, was her only work—it was published in 1847 and she died the following year, at age 30.  Thanks for giving us Heathcliff on the moors, Ms. Bell!

Turkish women are laughing in public because a politician told them not to

Apparently having a sense of humor in Turkey is a feminist act. More power to the ladies!

Poutine. You can have it so many ways, it is easily the best food group in the world. The crunch of chips, the warmth of gravy and the silky smoothness of cheese……………….need I say more! Q: Can I add bacon bits to it? A: Of course you can, you silly scamp. Q: What about jalepenos? A: It’s Poutine, you can add what you like!

Was editing a review of an anthology of Canadian zombie fiction, Dead North, and learned a new word. Poutine is a classic French Canadian dish of French fries, cheese curds, and gravy. Definitely not for those on a low-carb diet! Does this top fried chicken & waffles as the most insane food ever?

Quote

"Every nation that has ended in tyranny has come to that end by way of good order. It certainly does not follow from this that peoples should scorn public peace, but neither should they be satisfied with that and nothing more. A nation that asks nothing of government but the maintenance of order is already a slave in the depths of its heart; it is a slave of its well-being, ready for the man who will put it in chains."
