Bryce Eleanor came up with a new name on Tuesday night for bow tie pasta or farfalla. She called it butterfly pasta. Which, of course, is not new, as farfalla is Italian for butterfly. The name "bow tie" was, undoubtedly, a result of its resemblance to butterfly wings. She ate her butterfly pasta one wing at a time, with commentary on each one. I love the word farfalla. It is just one of those words that has a nice sound, but I'm leaning toward butterfly pasta from now on.

I've found a new blog that I enjoy, Funky Junk Interiors, and after subscribing, I was scrolling down previous posts and found this one on how to make your blog friendlier for visitors. The one that hit home was the one about music--man, I don't care for this one, even if I happen to like the music (and I frequently do NOT like the music). Especially when it comes in with a blast, startles me, and sends me scrambling for the Mute button. If I can't find it quickly enough, I click out of the blog.
I've removed Word Verification (again)...until I get a bunch of spam. Each time I remove it, things go well for a while, then the spammers discover the inroad, and I apply WV again.
Anyway, I'm going to go through her list and her reasoning again and see what else would make this blog friendlier. I mentioned many of the items on her list as deterrents to my enjoyment of other blogs in a post a year or so ago, but I liked her more detailed explanations.
