    Happy 'Birthday', Babylon 5!!

      Well, well...

      ... but some recent tweets which couldn't circumvent Bagna Cauda ;-)

      bhandel58 @straczynski:
      Were there any unnecessary government shutdowns on Babylon 5? ...
      J. Michael Straczynski retweet:
      No, just a labor union strike and a pay freeze while transitioning from
      Earth Alliance salary systems during the separation period. But everyone kept
      coming to work because, well, they had nowhere else to go.
      Kate Lambert? @straczynski:
      Wasn't there a delayed bagna cauda shipment from Earth?

      Bagna cauda is a dish best served cold, Or, not at all.
      So, Satai what were Your recent experiences about that causa <err> cauda?

      And yes: HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIDNIGHT!

        HA! I watched it pretty late Saturday and meant to come say something, but then I got caught up watching THE L-SHAPED ROOM (1962) on Turner Classic Movies. Two-hours and six minutes later my eyes closed before I made any comments. When I awoke Sunday morning and got on the go it completely slipped my mind. LOL

        HAPPY Be-Lated BIRTHDAY MIDNIGHT ON THE FIRING LINE!!!!!

          Unfortunately I had fled the country at that time to get some writing peace and ended up in Athens. There was a party though and it included booze and a huge pile of lamb shops. As soon as I return to my TV and DVD:s I'll see if I can do something properly about it.

            Wow 25 years. I still remember when I saw the first airing of this episode. I remember seeing the listing in the TV Guide and contacting my mom to see if I could go over to her place to watch it. Hmmm, do they still publish TV Guides? I never seen the pilot. So Midnight on The Firing Line was my first exposure to Babylon 5. So seeing this thread is a reminder of my mom who past away approximately 10 years ago.

              I recently began re-watching the series while working @ home. The story still holds up even if the EFX looks dated.

              I remember watching the original airing of this in my apartment in Fullerton CA, I was recently laid off from my job and in the midst of writing a book on Powerpoint 4 for Windows. I don't remember if my GF at the time was there or not.

              A lot of crap has gone under the bridge since then and I don't know if the past 25 years has been good bad or indifferent for me. But faith manages and B5 endures.
              All generalizations are false, including this one.

                Yeah that "crap" river does flow. I can answer your question, "good" because you are still here sharing your thoughts with us. I was about to agree with your sentiment and then I thought in terms of my own "crap river" at least I'm still here to bitch about it to everyone and I know you all appreciate it.

                  we'd feel lost without your superfluous emojis looney
                  "There are no good wars. War is always the worst possible way to resolve differences. It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

                    It has taken 25 years, but I finally looked up bagna cauda and it looks like both veggies and bread are implicated ("Literally translated as "hot bath," this dipping sauce for vegetables often appears in many Italian homes as part of the Christmas Eve buffet. Although cardoons (an edible thistle related to the artichoke but resembling celery) are traditional, celery makes a fine substitute and any combination of vegetables will do. In Italy, the routine goes like this: Vegetable pieces are dipped into the sauce (a fondue-style fork will help) and then eaten, with a slice of bread held underneath to catch the drippings. Once the bread is soaked with sauce, it's eaten, too. Then everyone starts over. It's fun for a party appetizer no matter where you live." -- see https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/f...gna-cauda-2827 for recipe).

                      Made bagna cauda years ago, it's so freaking tasty. Crusty bread is the way forward. You can put a hint of lemon juice in it to balance the richness a bit.
                      Captain John Sheridan: I really *hate* it when you do that.

                      Kosh: Good!

                          Like I am going to listen to a doctor concerning what I eat!

                            It's not Dr. Who. It's Dr. Franklin!

                            I'm surprised that Garibaldi with his bad eating forms got so aged.
                            I suppose, later on Lise had a "healthy" influence on him.
