Welcome to an ecclectic blog concerned primarily with design; design in food preparation, in building, in slinging words together, and -- not to swing too blunt a cudgel -- design in living well by my lights. If that all sounds pretentious, it quite possibly is. As Mark Twain said, "My habits protect my life. They'd probably assasinate you." Expect no apologies. This is me: Dum Luk's.
