  1. “It is sometimes an appropriate response to reality to go insane.” ― Philip K. Dick, VALIS ... Or to go to grad school because that's pretty much the same thing. Purdue Food Science PhD program on a USDA National Needs fellowship for Foods & Health, starting in the fall. Yikes!

      It will, which, given the current weather, lends more credence to the insanity plea I'll surely be making in court one day.

      Working in a nut-house (per se), as I do, we try to promote our products. So, dairy-replacement products are things I work on sometimes. And for those keeping score, they need more coffee & more cocoa, but the sugar & vanilla amounts are good. Still have to tweak the hydrocolloids more though. ;)
