Ms. Barbara Carroll was quite elegant and charming, as she performed semiclassical to bebop. The perfect compliment to the stately morning was the poached Atlantic salmon, served refreshingly chilled with dill crème fraiche and black olive tapenade, not to be outdone by the heartiness of the eggs benedict. One word to describe it: Merveilleux!

But what if the Palm was to go dead one day (any day now), could we even go completely non-PDA? We think something like Muji's Chronotebook may work just as well (here's why). If you like visual in-your-face reminders, a neat idea like this may work for you. If you like to do long-term planning on paper (or on your wall), check this out. If you're tight on funds, any notebook or a huge piece of contruction paper at your local dollar store will do. It's your life... be creative!

The water bath trick is a bit of a pain. But ensures a light, fluffy, supersmooth cake. Ignore the recipe suggestion of 325 degrees. I bumbed it up to 375 and left the cake in the oven to cool down for a bit. My group of picky taste-testers agreed that this one definitely earns five stars!

Photojournalist James Nachtwey, for the past three decades, has devoted himself to documenting wars, conflicts and critical social issues. However, when certain stories he wanted to cover - such as Romanian orphanages and famine in Somalia - garnered no interest from magazines, he self-financed trips there. In 2007, he was awarded the TED Prize, which comes with $100,000 and one wish to change the world. These photographs and this project are his wish, to tell the story of extremely drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB) and TB.
