A tourist-free traditional Tokyo wedding

Rainy season, it has to be said, isn’t the nicest time of year. The humidity ramps up enormously, and, as the name suggests, it tends to rain rather a lot. Yet despite such unpleasantness, June is a popular month to get married in, and probably just as popular as a venue is Tokyo’s Meiji Shrine. A money making machine that at the weekend sees up to around 15 weddings in a single day. Given the surroundings and the ceremonial outfits, the public procession element of each service is quite the spe...

Comment on bowties with sugar snaps, lemon and ricotta by Michele Archambault

Thanks for reposting this on Instagram! I was trying to figure out what to make that didn’t require a lot of stove time (very humid and no central a/c!) and this was perfect. It comes together so quickly. Very tasty and a good reminder that less can be more with a pasta dish. I used the mint, but going to try it with basil next time since I grow that and don’t grow mint. Sounds like that works well too based on some of the other comments.

Custom Bikes Of The Week: Best of The No Show

H-D pulled their entries from the canceled Mama Tried, Congregation and Born Free shows, with a few international wild cards in the mix, totaling 60 bikes from the USA and abroad.

This morning at 5:54, a man erected a large cross on the empty plinth where the "Forward!" statue had stood until protesters tore it down last week.

We happened to be driving by: The shirt says "We want more" (front) and "SOULutions" (BACK). I'd gotten out of the car to take the second picture, and as I was getting back, a black man walked up to me and began, "I'm from Minnesota...." I said "Sorry" and got in the car. The man went up to the guy who was putting up the cross (and the woman who was there with him).I couldn't hear the conversation, but the man with the cross listened, handed the man what I assume was money, continued to talk ...
