I had a pretty awesome birthday, yesterday, thanks to my wife. She got me a great gift, made an amazing Quinoa dinner and took me to see Christopher Nolan's new film.

Interstellar was beyond excellent! Nothing will come close to such an impacting story with emotion, love and honor; as well as intelligence and everything perfectly visual. The score and sound scape was soo terrific; the whole time I was in awe. I love the fact that no matter what that director/writer does, he is completely original and committed.

My wife took the liberty of official naming me "Papa Oates, the grill king" and actually did something about it!

Here's a couple pics that I'm proud to show off.

That dish is an excellent healthy Quinoa dish, with black beans, pico de gallo, and avocado. So good, so good.

Alright nook; just thought I could share the blessings of life with you guys.

Happy late birthday, Bryan. That dish looks terrific. I too enjoyed Interstellar, but (spoiler alert!) couldn't whoever sent him the data to transmit to his daughter have just given him a cell phone to use??

Thanks fellas, much appreciated.

Johnny - It so was. All of that over a bed of Spinach, hmmmm

John - I believe the circuity wouldn't function once out of the atmosphere of Earth. I believe Michael (Caine) said that to Cooper when he first discovered the "secret place" and considered going.
