    Always!

    Guess what I'm having for Christmas dinner, Timmy! Hint:

    Lamb Loin Chops with Fig Glaze
    Ingredients:
    8× 4 oz Lamb Loin Chops, trimmed
    Marinade
    cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    ½ cup Red Wine, dry
    2 Tbsp Preserved Lemon, chopped (or fresh lemon juice)
    3 Garlic Cloves, minced
    1 Tbsp Mint, chopped
    1 Tbsp Oregano, chopped
    1 Tbsp Rosemary, chopped
    1 tsp Balsamic Sea Salt
    1 tsp Course Black Pepper
    Fig Glaze
    ½ cup Fig Preserves
    3 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
    ¼ cup Lemonade, light (or fresh orange juice)
    Directions:
    Combine marinade ingredients in a mixing bowl. Place lamb in the bowl and coat evenly. Put lamb and marinade in a heavy-duty zip-lock plastic bag. Seal bag. Marinate in refrigerator for 8 hours, turning occasionally.
    Meanwhile, add the fig glaze to a small sauce pan. Reduce glaze until bubbles appear. Remove from stove.
    If roasting:
    Preheat oven to 400.
    Brown 4-5 minutes on each side.
    Bake 10 minutes, adding glaze after the first 5 minutes.
    If grilling:
    Prepare your grill.
    Coat grill rack with cooking spray; cook 4-5 minutes on each side or until desired doneness. The last few minutes of cooking time, spread glaze on lamb.

    EAT LAMB!!!!

    Today we had pasta that my son made, with scallops and roasted tomato sauce that he made. It was very, very good. Tomorrow, lamb and salad and tarte tatin if I can make it right.

    from Tony Ortega:

    Harlow Shapley: A Christmas treat



    Recently, we were asked about a story we wrote for Astronomy magazine 15 years ago about the American astronomer Harlow Shapley. We hadn’t thought about that story in a long time, and it’s never been online. And since we were reminded about it, and since the rights reverted to us after it was published, we decided to add it to the Bunker here among the other non-Scientology related stories we archive.

    We were long a fan of Shapley and his particular discovery — that the Sun and the solar system weren’t in the center of things, but were actually far from the galaxy’s center — but we also knew that as the longtime director of the Harvard College Observatory, he was an active, and liberal, promoter of international scientific cooperation. He was famous for standing up to the House Un-American Activities Committee and to Senator Joseph McCarthy, and he was also an outspoken atheist who made a point of working on Christmas Day 1946 to bring attention to it. We assumed that J. Edgar Hoover would have had a guy like Shapley tailed. Turned out we were right. After waiting a year and a half, we received a copy of his 461-page FBI file in 2001 and then put our story together for the magazine.

    We think Shapley is not remembered nearly as much as he ought to be, and we hope you find our article about him to be a fun holiday treat.
