Feta cheese, Bob Newhart, sharpening stone

Olives stuffed with feta cheese: a Mediterranean double whammy.

I listen to some Bob Newhart monologues. That deadpan, slightly surprised American voice and his genius for understatement and throw-away line make me laugh as often as I hear him. The Driving Instructor, Rocket Scientist, Defusing a Bomb, or Merchandising the Wright Brothers, I don't know which is my favourite.

A pair of garden/kitchen scissors has become blunt. I find the little carborundum stone which I keep in my desk drawer, and grind away. I don't think it has helped, but there is satisfaction to be had in fining a blade.
