Reinterpretations

An alternative take on classic treats...and meats.


Newman's Own version of the Oreo cookie, Newman-O's. The classic treat, that features more cocoa flavor than sweetness (with no high-fructose corn syrup), it's (mostly) organic, and all profits go to charity...it's clearly superior to the original incarnation.


Fig Bites made with Turkish figs. A healthier, more satisfying version of the Fig Newton brought to you by the always welcoming, Trader Joe's


Here's a rarity...a veggie burger that's moist AND dense. The Beast Burger, brought to you by Beyond Meat, is made from pea protein. A welcome departure from the black bean and soy options that currently dominate the market.


Finally, a long-time favorite of mine by WestSoy. Seitan is high in protein, low in fat, and has great density & texture. It easily replaces any meat...try using seitan in a Philly CheeseSteak or Shepherd's Pie.

Remnants Of A Destroyed Star


Crab Nebula (Hubble Space Telescope/NASA)

"This new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image reveals the beating heart of one of the most visually appealing, and most studied, supernova remnants known - the Crab Nebula. At the centre of this nebula the spinning core of a deceased star breathes life into the gas that surrounds it."



Veil Nebula (Hubble Space Telescope/NASA)

The Veil Nebula is 110 light-years wide, a cloud of heated and ionized gas & dust approximately, 2,100 light-years from Earth in the constellation Cygnus.

Meanwhile...On It's Way To Jupiter


Measurements by the Juno Spacecraft (NASA).

'Jupiter, the largest planet in the Solar System, is best known for its colourful storms. Now astronomers have focused on another beautiful feature of the planet, using the ultraviolet capabilities of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. The extraordinary vivid glows shown in the new observations are known as auroras. They are created when high energy particles enter a planet’s atmosphere near its magnetic poles and collide with atoms of gas.'

    "I'm Keith Hernandez"

    30 years later...the Mets finally recognized their epic season at Citi Field.

    Photo: New York Mets


    The '86 Mets were one of the most successful (108-54), passionate...yet dysfunctional teams in MLB history, and they encountered some of the most improbable post-season outcomes to win the championship (vs. Houston, and then Boston). It brought pure bliss to their loyal and unfortunately, deprived fans. I'll never forget when my family and I screamed with joy as our Miracle Mets won in the only way they know how...unlikely, incomparable and nearly impossible.

    'It really does help to cool you off a bit. You need a little energy, some vitamins to pump you up before you can drink the rest of the night and dance. You kinda get a sandwich with every drink'

    Young Stars

    The Trumpler 14 cluster is approximately 500,000 years old. According to the European Space Agency, 'This region of space houses one of the highest concentrations of massive, luminous stars in the entire Milky Way - a spectacular family of young, bright, white-blue stars. These stars are rapidly working their way through their vast supplies of hydrogen, and have only a few million years of life left before they explode as supernova'. Earth's Sun, by comparison, is 4.6 billion years old.

    Dub On Ice

    While on vacation in Hawaii, I suggested to Ulf Lindemann AKA [Dunkelbunt] that he needed to try an Ululani's Hawaiian Shaved Ice, and if you're fortunate enough to ever be in Hawaii, I urge you to do the same. Ululani's shaved ice is made with in-house syrups featuring natural fruit purees, fruit extracts, pure cane sugar and purified water.

    Milk & Cookies...With A Conscience

    Did you know that it takes a gallon a water to grow one almond? Avoid Almond Milk and try Good Karma Flax Seed Milk, instead. You will not be disappointed! Also, try a much more satisfying version of the "Nutter Butter" style cookie from Back To Nature. Remaining centered while snacking, now that really is good karma!

    "Baseball Been Berry, Berry Good To Me"

    It's a great time to be a Mets fan! Especially with their phenomenal pitching staff and the re-signing of Yoenis Cespedes. Following their first World Series appearance in 15 years, Spring Training is now underway and expectations are riding high for the defending National League Champs. Yet, I've been a Mets fan my whole life and we have a storied history, but I never envisioned two players coming to the ball park on horseback! Especially, a 6'6", 240lb pitcher in Noah Syndergaard (who throws 100 mph) and Cespedes, one of the most prolific power hitters in the game.


    This absurdity reminds me of two other Metropolitan players...
