From Round to Square (and back)

For The Emperor's Teacher, scroll down (↓) to "Topics." It's the management book that will rock the world (and break the vase, as you will see). Click or paste the following link for a recent profile of the project:

A new post appears every day at 12:05* (CDT). There's more, though. Take a look at the right-hand side of the page for over four years of material (2,000 posts and growing) from Seinfeld and country music to every single day of the Chinese lunar calendar...translated. Look here ↓ and explore a little. It will take you all the way down the page...from round to square (and back again).
*Occasionally I will leave a long post up for thirty-six hours, and post a shorter entry at noon the next day.

No worries, though—my name is Lederhosen Pug, and I know the way (知道).

And the way to my heart every May and June in my Bavarian homeland is with white asparagus (we call it Spargel).

We love it and, according to the New York Times, we are a little obsessed. Take a look:

Grandma Pug always made it just right, and it starts with the peeling. You have to take off just enough of the "tough stuff" to get it ready for cooking. From there, just a little pan of water and cooked (not boiled) until tender.

Grandma Pug's was the best, but here is a good website.

Tasty. Although it doesn't traditionally go with Weißwurst, Brezen, und Bier, I always convinced grandma to put a little on my morning plate. Tasty.

Non-traditional...traditional pug.
