I deliberately keep my clocks on the wrong time, which causes my Rebbetzin some frustration. There's no real reason for it; I just do things that way.
[I also never changed the dead battery in the clock in my shul office, but that was for a specific purpose: to avoid the temptation to look at it during a meeting. That same goal was the reason I never wore a watch; I didn't want to fall into the trap that took George H. W. Bush in 1992.]
So once my long-suffering wife asked me, "How can you tell what time it is?" To which I replied, "Just go to www.whattimeisit.com!" She called me on it, so I typed it in - and sure enough, there it was, a site to inform the poor, achronistic websurfer of the time of day.
That came to mind this evening, when I was preparing corn on the cob for the kids' dinner [the last of my Rebbetzinless week]. I wanted to do something unusual with it, rather than simply boil it. So I went to www.howtocookcornonthecob.com - and lo, there was a page offering instruction on steaming, boiling, microwaving and grilling becobbed corn.
This, of course, led me to contemplate some other potential How-To websites addressing life's challenges:
www.how_to_cook_rice_without_clumping_it.com (I like the clumps, for the record)
And life's particularly Jewish challenges:
For the record, I found a recipe I thought would be different enough to be interesting, without being so interesting that the kids wouldn't go for it; you can find it here. It wasn't bad!
