    Well my onions are still cooking and they haven't turned brown yet. I think I used too much ghee; I put in about a cup of ghee. The Rouxbe recipe says to only use 3tbsp. I guess I will try with less ghee next time.

    I have some pasanda curry marinating in the fridge which will be ready to cook in about a half hour. I need to get the onions out. I'll still eat them even if they aren't golden brown.

    My toe is a little better today, although still swollen. My ring toe next to my pinky toe is a little swollen as well. However, yesterday I was hopping around, today I'm limping around.

    I left about a third of the onions in the pot and added a bit more ghee, then put in the pasandas and let that cook for an hour or so on low heat. The pasandas came out much better than last time, and the sauce was much better as well. I think the key was the length of time I spent cooking the onion.

    I walked barefoot to the Starbucks this morning and walked past the sheriff who warned me that it was against the law to walk into a business establishment with no shoes on. I questioned him and doubted such a law existed, and he said it was in the health code. Or in other words, the nanny state code.

    I suppose I could have gone into a big deal about how we live in a police state and tried to determine if this guy was a true patriot or some kind of statist thug. I wonder how many laws there are that they have to enforce. I bet the law book is about forty volumes and could fill an entire shelf.

    I told the sheriff I'd just use the drive through unless he wanted to give me a pass, and he let me go inside, but told me that next time I'm going to have to wear shoes.

    I guess next time, I'll just arrive a little bit earlier, or maybe next time I'll sit down with them and talk about statism and get them to go in and buy a coffee for me.

    Yesterday I wrote an HTML page which displays a chess board and the initial position of chess pieces. I then wrote some JavaScript to load in a chess position from a FEN[1] string.

    Below are some code examples. The web page can be seen here.

    [1] Forsyth_Edwards_Notation

    Code:
    var Board = function() {};
    
    // Define HTML for chess pieces
    Board.prototype.WHITE_KING  = "♔";
    Board.prototype.WHITE_QUEEN = "♕";
    Board.prototype.WHITE_ROOK  = "♖";
    Board.prototype.WHITE_BISHOP= "♗";
    Board.prototype.WHITE_KNIGHT= "♘";
    Board.prototype.WHITE_PAWN  = "♙";
    Board.prototype.BLACK_KING  = "♚";
    Board.prototype.BLACK_QUEEN = "♛";
    Board.prototype.BLACK_ROOK  = "♜";
    Board.prototype.BLACK_BISHOP= "♝";
    Board.prototype.BLACK_KNIGHT= "♞";
    Board.prototype.BLACK_PAWN  = "♟";
    
    Board.prototype.set = function(square, value) {
        document.getElementById(square).innerHTML = value ? value : "";
    };
    
    Board.prototype.setByIndex = function(x, y, value) {
        this.set("abcdefgh".charAt(x) + y.toString(), value);
    }
    
    Board.prototype.get = function(square) {
        return document.getElementById(square).innerHTML;
    };
    Code:
    var chess = function() {
        var fen;
        var board = new Board();
    
        return {
            resetBoard: function() {
                fen = new FEN("rnbqkbnr/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/RNBQKBNR w KQkq - 0 1");
                return fen.populateBoard(board);
            },
            clearBoard: function() {
                fen = new FEN("8/8/8/8/8/8/8/8 w KQkq - 0 1");
                return fen.populateBoard(board);
            }
        }
    }();

    California is probably worse than Nevada. I did a google search and couldn't find any law that says I can't go into a store barefoot. I think that cop was full of it.

    I found this...

    Barefoot - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I also found a law which says you can't drive barefoot in California. I hope I don't ever get pulled over.

    Okay, I found this PDF and I'm printing it out. I'm going to carry it with me everywhere I go, and the next time a cop says I can't go in a store barefoot, I'll show him this:

    Hey Grok

    Just found your log and had to comment. Its good to find someone who loves barefeet as much as I do. Though I think any police in my area would be to shocked to see barefeet and would only ask me if I was aware I didnt have shoes on haha. Fight the fight when you know your right.

    hehe thanks. I went to Starbucks again today barefoot hoping I'd see some cops and as luck would have it, two cops entered just before me. I was all ready to show them my letter from the health department, but unfortunately these cops didn't seem to care that I was barefoot and didn't say a word.

    Oh well, maybe next time.
