Prehistoric Skeletons Found Embracing

"Two skeletons about 5000-6000 years old have been found in Italy. They’re unquestionably hugging, making this the first of its kind. Pretty special.

“It’s an extraordinary case,” said Ms Menotti. “There has not been a double burial found in the Neolithic period, much less two people hugging - and they really are hugging,” she told Reuters news agency.

Flint tools, including arrowheads and a knife, were also found alongside the couple."

Sunday, May 25, 2008


Well I've been working a lot lately, but mostly on gifts for other people (surprises for loved ones/a week full of Birthdays). Unfortunately this means I haven't had time to make more public works (yet). Still I wanted to leave behind a bit of something on here. So I'm leaving the following pics to hopefully inspire, make you laugh or get you excited enough to go out and generate your own bits of creation and inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cornmeal-Thyme Cookies!

My housemate Jordan has made these several times and I have to say they are delicious.


Makes about 3 dozen
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup stone-ground yellow cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 ounces (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 large eggs
3/4 cup dried currants
1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. Whisk together flour, baking soda, cornmeal, and salt in a medium bowl.
Put butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; cream on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Mix in eggs, 1 at a time. Add flour mixture; mix on low speed until just combined. Mix in currants and thyme.
Using a tablespoon or a 1 1/2-inch ice-cream scoop, drop rounded balls of dough onto lined sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart. Bake, rotating and switching positions of sheets about halfway through, until pale golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer cookies, on parchment, to a wire rack. Let cool completely.
