Picture of the Day – Scooter Olystyle

I see this scooter everyday when turning from 5th Avenue to Water Street around the horrendous park construction that is happening (again) in Heritage Park.  I assume the scooter is the master of some drone working in the Heritage Bank Mortgage office, which is right next door, but they could just as easily work over at El Guanaco, the El Salvadoran restaurant in the Traditions Building on 5th.

There is an eclectic style of decoration, including the “hands” diversity sticker, (very popular in Oly), a “Red Star” (of communism?), an Apple Mac logo on the muffler, and sooper cool arboreal camo cowling.  C’est Chic!

Peanuts don’t have gluten, do they?

In honor of the sweet peanut butter cookies I’m making tonight, I’m re-hashing some of my old web 1.0 content, and posting it to my blog, and to OlyBlog. Have fun, and remember, all things in moderation!


Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies by Cosmo G. Spacely


peanut butter 1 cup
sugar 1 cup



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, (180 C), mix ingredients thoroughly with fork, and spoon out cookie sized blobs on a cookie tin, preferably one lined with tin foil and pre-greased, then place them in the oven until they are done. (Usually between 13 and 18 minutes, depending on your taste, oven weirdness, etc. Make your own judgment, eh?)

Please don’t make the mistake of thinking since these cookies are gluten free, they’re somehow more healthy than other cookies. These cookies are heavy in fat, cholesterol, calories, and carbohydrates, all of which are bad for you one way or another. Make and eat at your own risk. Cosmo G. Spacely makes no representation of any kind regarding these cookies, not even that they are truly gluten free, (There’s no flour, do peanuts have gluten?) Cosmo does think that they are delicious, however. * Nutritional information is estimated, probably largely suspect, but included here anyway, as some kind of penance for putting these tempting cookies on the web in the first place.
