For several days, through yesterday morning, there was a smooshed sparrow slowly decomposing on the sidewalk on Broadway, on my walk to work. But yesterday, as I was passing it on the way home, my usual greeting of “what up, bird?” was interrupted midstream by my surprise at its appearance. A closer look revealed that someone had replaced the dead bird with a life-size, and lifelike, stuffed toy sparrow.

Whoever did this – if by some cosmic coincidence you read this – your Art did not go unappreciated.

    Portuguese people are sweet toothed! Their specialities include a least two hundred different types of pastries. This national taste to sweets seems to have originated during the Moorish occupation; and in the 15th century there was the sugar cane planted in Madeira. Later on, in the 17th and 18th century, the convents became famous for their pastries, as can be told by the allusive (!) names of their specialities: “toucinho do céu” – heaven’s lard, or “barriga de freiras” – nun’s belly.
