  4. Spaghetti and Loose Ground Meat Making your sauce is always better — it's cheaper and so much more flavorful. This one comes together in just about 15 minutes and is the perfect accompaniment to the big garlicky meatballs. (If you have leftovers, try our Spaghetti & Meatball Cups. Kids LOVE them.) YIELDS: 4 PREP TIME: 0 HOURS 20 MINS TOTAL TIME: 1 HOUR 0 MINS INGREDIENTS 1 lb. spaghetti 1 lb. ground beef 1/3 c. breadcrumbs 1/4 c. finely chopped parsley 1/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan, plus more for serving 1 egg 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 tsp. Kosher salt 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes 2 tbsp. olive oil, divided 1/2 c. onion, finely chopped 1 (35-oz.) can crushed tomatoes in puree 1 bay leaf Freshly ground black pepper DIRECTIONS In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook spaghetti according to package instructions. Drain. In a large bowl, combine beef with breadcrumbs, parsley, parmesan, egg, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and red pepper flakes. Mix until just combined then form into 16 balls. In a large pot over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon oil. Add meatballs and cook, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Remove meatballs and reserve on plate. Add the remaining oil and onion and cook until onion is soft, 5 minutes. Add crushed tomatoes and bay leaf. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a simmer. Add the meatballs back into the pot, cover and simmer until the sauce has thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve pasta with a healthy scoop of meatballs and sauce. Top with Parmesan before serving Travis J Bourque thank you for sharing
  5. If a Holly tree (Ilex aquifolium) finds its leaves are being nibbled by deer, it modifies its DNA to make them spiky when they regrow. So on taller Holly trees, the upper leaves (which are out of reach) have smooth edges, while the lower leaves are prickly. Leif Bersweden

  7. The original Star Trek Captain, Christopher Pike has been portrayed by four actors in TV and movies, and in two different timelines. Pike predates James T. Kirk (William Shatner) as the Captain of the Enterprise, but his version of Star Trek never made it to series. NBC demanded Star Trek be retooled, and Pike was a casualty of the changes. Yet Captain Pike returned in Star Trek: The Original Series, the J.J. Abrams Star Trek movies, and the Starfleet exemplar has found new vitality in Star Trek on Paramount+.
  8. "Larry Linville sort of indicated in a tv interview that's included in one of the documentaries included with the M*A*S*H Season 11 3-DVD boxset that the notion Frank could start to """"be (more) human"""" was a dead end for him as an actor. He says, on tape, """"people have asked, why didn't Frank grow or become more understanding, and I say to em, what do want him to be, Alan Alda?!"""" So Linville may have asked himself the question, 'could we add humanity to Burns if I continue longer on MASH'? And just rejected the idea, thus had to leave when there was no more 'butt of the jokes' plots to be had. I totally agree with you that Burns can be nominally human. I love him in """"Der Tag"""" ---desiring being friends for a night with Hawkeye and BJ, and getting fall down drunk with them, and """"Hot Lips is Back in Town""""---talking about wanting to go after the new red-headed nurse to Margaret's face and landing a """"direct hit"""" as BJ says, on Margaret, talking about it with Hawk and BJ in the mess tent!"
