Hi Friends of Indian food,
There are many people who love Indian food. They want to cook it and learn more about it. Sometimes it looks a little challenging to learn straight off the dishes you’ve ordered at the restaurant. But no worries: they’re not so daunting. I can teach you the diverse types of Indian dishes and spices. I will teach you the nuances and secrets, where to get the masalas, and how to keep the aroma intact.
You get to cook, have food, and bring your items back home for next day's Lunch. Bring your own containers, please.
Come, take the initiative into the mysteries of Indian cooking. Unravel the secrets of the mouthwatering spices.

The city Parks Department has signed on to a plan to reduce the geese population in Prospect Park with non-lethal means such as poisoning goose eggs, posting signs asking people not to feed them and getting ready to deploy dogs to shoo them away. But the city is reserving the right to kill geese if less aggressive approaches aren't working.
VERY SPECIAL vision impaired kittens for adoption!
For Adoption: Bonnie and Clyde
5 Month Old Vision Impaired Kittens
Meet Bonnie and Clyde, the two most loving, gentle kittens you'll ever encounter. They were found living on the street with severe infections that caused irreversible damage to their eyes. Clyde's eyes were so bad that both had to be removed and he is 100% blind. Bonnie was luckier to keep both eyes, and some of her vision. Her eyes have improved since her rescue and may continue, to some extent, but she will always have cloudiness that affects her sight.
Some people may call these kittens "special needs" but they require no special care. Cats are highly adaptable and this pair does not know what it's like to have fully functioning eyes. Blind cats, like people, develop heightened senses of smell, sound and touch. They "see" not with their eyes but with their whiskers. Watching a blind cat navigate around a home is nothing short of awe inspiring as they wind their way around the couch and between the chair legs of the dining room table to their bowl of food, without taking so much as one wrong step!
Please consider opening your heart and home to these amazing creatures, they will change your outlook on life!
Bonnie and Clyde are about 5 months old, spayed/neutered, negative for Feline Leukemia and Feline AIDS, and free of parasites. Adoption application and fee apply, serious inquiries only!

two cameras were installed atop the rest room building. They surveil the playground, central corridor of the Parade Ground, and the intersection of Parade Place and Crooke Avenue. Iron stanchions have been removed from the concrete at that intersection, allowing patrol cars, which we've seen with increasing frequency, into the park with greater ease. A sign "Under NYPD Surveillance" has been affixed to the side of the rest room building.
Last week, Councilmembers Brad Lander and Steve Levin introduced a city council bill that would establish a Wildlife Management Committee to oversee wildlife in city parks in hopes of preventing drastic methods of wildlife management, like the mass extermination of hundreds of park geese last summer.
The bill also calls for the board to draft a citywide wildlife management plan to promote humane treatment and “biological diversity” for park animals. If the legislation passes, the board would hear public input on how to more humanely manage wildlife in the city.
Planting Crops and Sign Up April 23rd, 10 am
Do you want to help Prospect Farm grow vegetables, herbs, flowers and more? Sign up to be a plot manager for 2011. We will begin planning and planting on Saturday April 23rd (rain date April 24th) at 10 am, and are looking for 12-14 plot manager to dedicate 1-2 hours a week watering, weeding, and tending crops.
We plan to grow together as a group, which means no individual plots. Plot managers will be scheduled a day to water and tend crops. At the end of each week we will harvest together, weigh and record what we got, and divide up the produce to all members. In the future (this is the beginning of our second year) we hope to offer a CSA, and we feel this is a step towards that model.
Currently our steering committee has decided what to grow based on space, amount of members, and quality of soil. In the future we would love input from the dedicated plot managers. Our current list includes multiple varieties of: tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet peppers, hot peppers, lettuce, spinach, herbs, zucchini, beans, eggplant, peas, squash and ornamentals: sunflowers, Seapink thrift, Ornamental Cabbage (Brassica oleracea), Pennycress (Thlaspi rotndifolium), Hemp Dogbane (Apocynum cannabinum).
All plot managers must become members of Prospect Farm, paying a fee of $25 (or $35 with tshirt) paid in cash or check and committing an hour a week to work at Prospect Farm. Details are here: http://prospectfarmbk.wordpress.com/support-us/membership/.
Please respond to by email with questions or bring them with you on Saturday the 23rd: prospectfarmbk [at] gmail.com.
If you can not make it there will be opportunites in the future to sign up.
