The Drugs Used by the Ancient Greeks and Romans

Many of us living in the parts of the world where marijuana has recently been legalized may regard ourselves as partaking of a highly modern pleasure. And given the ever-increasing sophistication of the growing and processing techniques that underlie what has become a formidable cannabis industry, perhaps, on some level, we are.

Sandra Bullock Turned Down A Superhero Movie, But Won't Say Which One

Sandra Bullock would make a wonderful superhero. I mean, she helped save a speeding bus full of people in "Speed," magically saved her own love life in "Practical Magic" (a film I will defend forever), and saved herself -- maybe -- in "Gravity." Bullock recently appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" to chat about her new Netflix film "The Unforgivable," and let it drop that she'd been approached for a superhero film and turned it down because her son Louis told her not to take it. She kept which movi...

Giving Thanks

Like most holidays we celebrate, the essence of the Thanksgiving holiday hides underneath our celebration of it. Ask anyone about Thanksgiving, and you will hear about turkey, stuffing, a big meal, family, and maybe football. I’m fine with all of that, particularly the stuffing and family parts. But the thing that I like most about Thanksgiving is the idea that this is a time of year to give thanks. The story I heard is that the first Thanksgiving was done to give thanks to the bount...

The 15 Best Board Games Of 2021

In any other industry, the best titles of the year would hit the market with an appropriate amount of fanfare and industry coverage. But for board game publishers — an industry dependent upon crowdfunding and limited by global supply chain issues — many titles can slip into circulation unnoticed, even with a regular dose of fulfillment updates available to the masses. So, unless you receive advance review copies or have embarrassingly deep pockets, this may be the first time you hear about a few...

The Gift of Passing Down Family Recipes

I can’t remember a time when cooking wasn’t of paramount importance to me. My first game of pretend? Cooking show. Tiny plastic cups and saucers arranged on an imaginary stove, balls of play-doh mimicking the vegetables and curries and chapatis (unleavened, griddled flatbreads) that were commonplace on our dinner table. I remember the first time I tasted homemade butter; my grandmother put a stainless steel bowl next to me, with a wink. No butter can ever come close to hers because a grandmother...
