Warm weather and Da Pan Ji

The weather here has started to warm up. Most days get up to around 20°C (about 68°F). Pretty nice for the end of February and beginning of March. It is still cloudy and a little rainy, but some days we get some sunshine. I was reading this article awhile ago about whether or not there is global warming...

Extreme weather is normal?

In the article they interviewed a wide range of meteorologists, climatologists, a tornado expert, scientists and professors about the subject. I thought this one source was kind of out of place...

"It certainly seems like something ominous is going on when you experience these extremes," says Gregory Berg, an assistant professor of music at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wis.

They're asking a music teacher?!

Anyways, it's nice to have some pleasant weather for a change. On Saturday I went out and got a haircut and bought some groceries. On Saturday evening Reese took me to a place that serves 大盘鸡. This is a dish from the the XinJiang province and consists of chicken, potatoes, peppers, onion, garlic, and spices in a nice broth. It is usually served with large noodles. You can see a picture of what it looks like here. I use to get Da Pan Ji at the Muslim restaurants in Dalian, but have not had any since moving to ChengDu. It was wonderful!
