"...the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like the fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars..." - Jack Kerouac

Voltage, Current, and Resistance - three of the most important electrical properties, are elegantly intertwined by way of a the simple equation - V = IR, better known as Ohm's Law.

This is the most basic concept in electronics presented for those of you who read this blog who have taken an interest in circuitry but don't happen to be operating with a degree in engineering...

Thanks Tom:)

Recipe: Philly Cheesesteaks!
Topic: Miscellaneous 5:19 pm EST, Jan 27, 2010

So Clint came up with a modified cheesesteak recipe that is awesome, so I wanted to share!

Caramelize 2 onions (we used red, but this would work with yellow or videlia as well) in a bit of melted butter and olive oil on medium-low heat for ~1 hour. When the onions are completely caramelized (no crunch left), add a small amount of balsamic vinegar (just enough to coat). Add 1 red bell pepper, sliced, to pan, and saute with the onions until soft (~5 min).

Remove onions and bell pepper from pan. Put pan back on stove, and heat on medium-high heat. Sear two steaks (we used strip steaks - on sale this week - but other steaks could work) until medium-rare (or until done to your liking). Remove steaks from pan and cut into thin strips.

Place onions, bell pepper, and steaks back into original pan, and deglaze with ~1/2 cup red wine (we used a Shiraz). Allow wine to simmer with meat mixture for a couple of minutes.

While wine is simmering with meat/veggies, toast 4 hoagie rolls from deli in the oven under broiler. When slightly toasted, remove from oven, add spicy mustard and white cheddar cheese (or your favorite cheese), and put back under broiler until cheese is melted. Spoon meat/veggie mixture on top of the cheese, and enjoy!

This recipe made enough for 4 sandwiches. (Yay leftovers!)

Buying children books is a wonderful thing - I recommend this particular online bookstore, run by my friend of over 20 years, Nancy Speas Hill.

What Slime Molds And Subways Have In Common, According to Scientists - biology - io9
Topic: Miscellaneous 6:35 pm EST, Jan 21, 2010

The slime mold Physarum polycephalum forms networks between food sources that are as efficient and fault tolerant as anything we can design. In order to test quite how good the mold is, and if it could be used to help human planning, a group of Japanese and British scientists pitted it against the Tokyo rail system, and found a surprisingly efficient result.
