VAV!/July 19, 2014

On May 24, 1844, Samuel F. B. Morse dispatched the first telegraphic message over an experimental line from the chamber of the Supreme Court, then in the US Capitol, Washington, D.C., to his assistant Albert Vail at the Mount Clair depot in Baltimore. Morse allowed Annie Ellsworth, the young daughter of a friend, to choose the words of the message, and she selected a verse from Numbers XXIII, 23: "What hath God wrought?"

ROAST BEEF SANDWICH RECIPE

VAV!/September 28, 2014/Contributed by Bobby of The Blog Chef Looking for a fantastic lunch or snack? If so, try this roast beef sandwich. This sandwich is roast beef topped with provolone cheese, lettuce and avocados. The real highlight of this recipe is the spicy mayo, it has just the right amount of kick and adds great flavor to this sandwich. The spicy mayo is a combination of mayonnaise, Tabasco sauce and chopped cilantro. It is important to dip the avocados in lemon juice or else they will turn brown. You might want to hollow out the bread a little to help everything stay in the sandwich (this sandwich is stacked!). This sandwich is so easy to make and so delicious, everyone will love it. It might be even perfect for a football party. Enjoy.

 

The Drop

VAV!/September 26, 2014/Contributed by Stars in Her Eye Dennis Lehane is a master story teller and his genius as an author has not gone unnoticed by Hollywood. Classics such as Mystic River and Shutter Island have been adapted to the big screen by prominent directors. Lehane has lent his talents to the small screen as well as working on The Wire and Boardwalk Empire. For his latest project, one of his short stories comes to life starring Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini. The Drop is based on the short story "Animal Rescue" and, Lehane adapted and expanded it for a feature film. Bob is a quiet bartender whose bar has been taken over by organized crime. The bar is used as a "drop" point, a place where dirty money is held until it can be picked up. When the bar is robbed, Bob and his boss have to deal with the repercussions and angry mobsters.
