On this day in history: April 29, 1992 - Rioting erupts in Los Angeles after Rodney King's assailants are acquitted by a jury. The looting and destruction begins in South Central L.A. and quickly radiates outward. By the time things are under control, 51 are dead and the city has sustained $1.5 billion in property damage. Civil disorder manages to spread to other North American cities, through the influence of live TV coverage.

Pop Some Bubblewrap! Relieve some stress. Pop some bubblewrap!

Yesterday, it was warm. Although cooler—at a high of 84 degrees—than Sunday—which saw a high of 93 degrees—yesterday was the first day this year that I found it necessary to turn on the air conditioning here at my office. Today is forecast to be ten degrees cooler. Yikes!

For dinner last evening, I made fettuccine with marinara sauce. I simmered ground pork sausage, minced garlic, sliced white onion, sliced white mushrooms, and diced Roma tomatoes in Cabernet Sauvignon—seasoned with Tony Chachere's More Spice, ground black pepper, ground Cayenne pepper, sea salt, and Italian seasoning. This simmered for two hours. Laura stirred in a bottle of Classico basil and tomato marinara sauce and cooked a package of Barilla fettuccine until al denté. I sliced half a loaf of garlic bread, arranged on a pizza pan, and placed in the oven. Laura watched it and removed it when ready. At the table, we added DiGiorno shredded Parmesan cheese and crushed red peppers. It was a delicious meal. A quantity followed Laura to Chico for lunch, and a goodly amount remains for another dinner Thursday.
