On this Christmas day, a random pic of many things for which I am grateful. My father-in-law Rooster-in-Residence @nobskafarms brought some Trinidad Moruga scorpions from his farm up on Cape Cod (they have a green house). Supposedly the Moruga has been clocked at 2 million on the Scoville Scale. So the little sliver on my finger is a fraction of the full monster, cut with a petite tranche of Boursin.

I’m also very thankful for my family home in Portland where I was born and raised. Love and literature to all of you and yourn.
