A Free State classic: Downtown brewery shares its legendary Cheddar Ale Soup recipe | News, Sports, Jobs - Lawrence Journal-World: news, information, headlines and events in Lawrence, Kansas
I personally have never been a huge fan of Free States Brewery's Cheddar Ale Soup, but I am in the minority. For those who do:

> The recipe is as follows:
> Free State Brewing Company Cheddar Ale Soup
> 3 tablespoons salted butter
> 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
> 1/4 cup minced yellow onion
> 1/4 cup small diced red bell pepper
> 1/4 cup small diced green bell pepper
> 2 garlic cloves, minced
> 1 cup Free State Ad Astra ale
> 3 ounces cream cheese
> 3 cups cream
> 2 teaspoons salt
> 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
> 1 teaspoon hot sauce
> Fresh parsley and thyme to taste
> 6 ounces grated Alma white or yellow cheddar cheese
> In 1 tablespoon butter, cook onion, peppers and garlic until onion is transparent. Add remaining butter and flour, stir well and cook mixture on medium-low heat for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add beer in small increments, mixing smooth after each addition. Cut cream cheese into smaller chunks and add to mixture. Mash and stir cream cheese until it is completely melted into mixture. Gradually add cream to mixture, mixing smooth after each addition. You may want to use a whisk at this point. Add seasonings, stir and heat to 160 degrees, being careful not to heat beyond this temperature. Add cheese in three increments stirring smooth with a whisk after each addition. If cheese is not melting after 30 seconds, check temperature and add heat if necessary. If soup is thin, add more cheese. If soup is thick, add milk. Serves 6-8.

Ignore the Pain
> Years after that Kansas City-Buffalo game, I visited Priest in San Antonio. He would tell me about lying awake at night, staring at the ceiling, praying for the feeling to come back to his arms and legs. He told me about looking for cracks in the sidewalk when he walks because he knows that if he hits a crack wrong now, his whole body might crumple. He told me about the migraines that split his head open. He told me that he would never have a full-night's sleep for the rest of his life.

Mr. Rogers's Simple Set of Rules for Talking to Kids - The Atlantic
> Per the pamphlet, there were nine steps for translating into Freddish:
> 1. "State the idea you wish to express as clearly as possible, and in terms preschoolers can understand." Example: It is dangerous to play in the street.
> 2. "Rephrase in a positive manner," as in It is good to play where it is safe.
> 3. "Rephrase the idea, bearing in mind that preschoolers cannot yet make subtle distinctions and need to be redirected to authorities they trust." As in, "Ask your parents where it is safe to play."
> 4. "Rephrase your idea to eliminate all elements that could be considered prescriptive, directive, or instructive." In the example, that'd mean getting rid of "ask": Your parents will tell you where it is safe to play.
> 5. "Rephrase any element that suggests certainty." That'd be "will": Your parents can tell you where it is safe to play.
> 6. "Rephrase your idea to eliminate any element that may not apply to all children." Not all children know their parents, so: Your favorite grown-ups can tell you where it is safe to play.
> 7. "Add a simple motivational idea that gives preschoolers a reason to follow your advice." Perhaps: Your favorite grown-ups can tell you where it is safe to play. It is good to listen to them.
> 8. "Rephrase your new statement, repeating the first step." "Good" represents a value judgment, so: Your favorite grown-ups can tell you where it is safe to play. It is important to try to listen to them.
> 9. "Rephrase your idea a final time, relating it to some phase of development a preschooler can understand." Maybe: Your favorite grown-ups can tell you where it is safe to play. It is important to try to listen to them, and listening is an important part of growing.

The NBA is obsessed with 3s, so let's finally fix the thing
> Where would Golden State put its line? What about Houston? You might think that Golden State would put their line closer in to get more 3s; however, their shooters all thrive from deep. Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson all hit from 25-plus feet with relative ease. By drawing their line at, say, 26 feet, they would emphasize their skills while challenging their opponents to swim in the deep end.

Software Journeyman – Smaller Python Docker Containers with Multi-Stage Builds and Python Wheels
> If your Docker Python build requires system dependencies that are NOT required at runtime, structure your build as follows: Use a multi-stage build Stage 1 installs system dependencies and uses them to build local wheels Stage 2 begins from the same base as Stage 1, copies wheels from Stage 1, and installs the wheels The rest of your build will be based on Stage 2 If you follow these steps, you'll end up with the smallest-possible Python Docker container with all your Python dependencies intact.

Why I miss Rails |
> The world of tech moves fast, and there's always new frameworks and paradigms popping up that make developers' lives easier and allow us to build more and more powerful applications. But, these transitions don't always just make things better for developers - sometimes we take steps backwards and undo the progress we made in the past.

This but for Django, and I'm doubling down on Django.
