Duck noodles, spicy Korean ramen, and YouTube

I haven’t been eating at nearly as many restaurants as I used to. Yesterday, however, I happened to be out for lunch and had a terrific bowl of duck noodles.

I have been eating potato chips with my usual frequency. That is, I try all the new flavors. Here are three recent ones. The cheeseburger one is my favorite of these three.

There remains a substantial backlog of flavors I have yet to share. For a while it seemed that Lays Thailand were releasing a new flavor every week. As much as I enjoy trying these flavors and sharing a few tasting notes, I can’t let my writing schedule be beholden to food scientists, marketing specialists, and corporate product release timelines.

Did you know that I’ve started posting videos on the ATC YouTube channel again? You may wish to subscribe to the channel and click the bell to enable notifications—you’ll then be among the first to know whenever I post a new video. I’ve even got a playlist for turf humor.

I've been adding timestamps to the longer videos to make it easy to navigate to specific topics.

I had posted videos at YouTube until 2014 and then stopped, and when I did create more videos I put them on my Vimeo page. Not many people watch my videos there, however, while a couple of my old videos on YouTube were getting about 5,000 views per year. So I decided to put some more videos on YouTube for people who want to watch or listen to them there. My idea is that more people will see what I am sharing, and that the videos I have on YouTube that already attract some views may lead more people to discover and watch some of the new videos that I’ll be posting.

What else is going on? Oh, remember the lion? I saw it! A couple weeks ago I was running back into town after a 9 km loop and the gate to the menagerie compound was open and I saw the lion, a big one, in a large cage just inside the gate.
