Maybe yours is to be more organized or to be in a better mood. But, if you are Christian, you might have more religious intentions.

Chefs are challenged to create dishes that are simple yet elegant. Dim sum houses are very popular here. Dim sum (touch of the heart) is served steaming hot on pushcarts. These are tiny appetizers, bite size, which are steamed, deep-fried or whatever the chef fancied. There are hundreds of varieties. Most dim sum houses are packed on weekends, when IDPLOLHVFDQJHWWRJHWKHUDQGH[FKDQJH stories of their daily accomplishments. There are no menus on the table. You pick out what you want when the carts pass by, and the server adds up how many dishes you had when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re done, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your bill. Another tradition of dim sum houses is that they always serve you tea of the highest quality (no wonder, most of them charge $1 per head). There are many rules that we observe in the dim sum houses. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk about them later. On the west are the regions of Szechuan, Hunan and Yunnan.

Farther north is Beijing (Peking), the capital of China. The north is not known for its foods. Muttons and pork are popular, and chickens are raised for their eggs by the poor. Only on special occasions would wealthy families put chicken on their menu. Duck, however, is a different story. Actually, most Peking duck is served three ways, and the crispy skin is the main attraction: The crispy skins are carefully sliced off the perfectly roasted duck. Then the skins are served in small, puffy pancakes with scallions and a dash of plum sauce. The meats are taken off the bone, and stir-fried with vegetables. The bones are used to make a soup.

Most vegetables used are fermented or pickled cabbage and mustard greens harvested in summer. A lot of animal fats are added to the dish. Garlic, leeks and chilies are used in most dishes, and sauces are made with fermented black beans and soy beans. On the east sits Shanghai, another seaport that is vital to the trading business of China. The great Yangtze River rages from the west and ends up merging with the mighty ocean in the east. Hence, Shanghai is mostly famous for its seafood dishes and other delicacies. Sauces are known to be heavy, pungent and plentiful. One can always taste the hint of rice wine and the sweetness from the dark cane sugar. My favorite Siu Long Bau is so very delicate and tasty. Those are steamed buns served in a bamboo steamer. You have to use the spoon to dish it out carefully from the container. Otherwise, the skin would break, and you would have the soup (juice) all over the table. And the dipping sauce is another story.

ncreasingly, it seems, people my age tend to shun New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve parties, acting as if the passage of another \HDUKDVQRUHDOVLJQLĂ&#x20AC;FDQFHZKHQVR many have come and gone. Our group of eight used to stay up talking well into the new year but this year, most slipped off to bed before the midnight hour. For those of us who remained, the celebration was muted - no noisemakers or party hats, just the grudging acknowledgement that yet another year had passed. ,VWLOOĂ&#x20AC;QGVRPHPHDQLQJLQWKHWXUQing of the page. New year, new hope - it still plays out that way in my mind. 2015 was a year of increasing clouds, ominous gray by yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end, a gathering storm. But sometimes storms lose their power or disintegrate altogether, and I like to think that 2016 will see those clouds break, letting the sun shine through. There are glimmerings of hope out there on the 2016 horizon, even in the cartoon candidacy of Donald Trump. Some warn of his authoritarian tendencies while others cringe when he lets loose with yet another knucklehead remark. But Trump is connecting with a block of voters who sometimes feel shut out of the system, and I can relate, having felt that way at different junctures in my life. Ultimately, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll put my trust in the wisdom of the electorate and the process that has continued unbroken for 240 years. Racial issues were front and center for much of the past year. Some saw us entering a post-racial period with the HOHFWLRQRI%DUDFN2EDPDLQ, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe that for a second, though I reveled in the moment with those celebrants in Grant Park in Chicago on that November night. But the race issue has

Two steps forward, one step back. I see the promise of a better era in race relations in the year ahead, based on an honest dialogue and a willingness to see things through othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; eyes. The proliferation of guns and gun violence continued unabated in 2015, with some suggesting that more guns in more hands is the only way to stem the tide. To that end, it became legal in 7H[DVRQWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWGD\RIWKLVQHZ\HDU to openly carry guns in shoulder or hip holsters. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see how that plays out in the year ahead. The most recent statistics show that, in general, states with more laws regulating gun ownership tend to have fewer gun deaths, see politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2015/oct/06/barack-obama/ obama-more-gun-laws-means-fewergun-deaths, but little data is available on the effect of open carry on gun violence. And the issue of gun violence became entwined with radical jihad and terrorism in the San Bernardino, Calif.,

shootings on Dec. 2. Legally purchased automatic weapons were used in the slaughter of 14 innocents, with 22 injured, at a care center, by two individuals who claimed they were motivated by, though not in direct contact with, ISIS. This led to a spike in gun sales across the country, apparently driven by the belief that a heavily armed populace can somehow ward off attacks on soft targets like the one in San Bernardino. Meanwhile, the Senate, to the disbelief of many, rejected an amendment that would have barred people on the terrorLVWZDWFKOLVWIURPSXUFKDVLQJĂ&#x20AC;UHDUPV RUH[SORVLYHVDPHDVXUHRYHUZKHOPingly supported by all including those likely to attend GOP caucuses in Iowa this month. The NRA, it seems, continues to hold sway over Congress while thwarting the will of the American people, but hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to a more balanced approach in 2016 if the polls are any indication. Here in Wisconsin, you can feel the pendulum swinging back after a year RIH[FHVVLYHRYHUUHDFKE\WKHJRYHUQRU and the Legislature. Gov. Walker saw his approval rating dip below 40 percent after an aborted run for the presidency. Too early to tell if that taste of humble pie will translate into a change of direction, but Walker declined all requests for year-end interviews in keeping with WKHGHFLGHGO\ORZSURĂ&#x20AC;OHKH¡VDGRSWHG since abandoning his quest. No doubt he would have been asked some difĂ&#x20AC;FXOWTXHVWLRQVLQFOXGLQJKRZKHMXVWLĂ&#x20AC;HGWDNLQJPLOOLRQIURPWKHSUL]HG UW System and giving it to the wealthy owners of the Milwaukee Bucks to build a new arena. While the governor has said he might seek a third term, 62 percent in the most recent poll said they would oppose that. And after a year of take-aways by the Republican-dominated state Legislature, all state representatives and half of state

senators will have to defend their actions if they seek re-election. Locally, Sen. Sheila Harsdorfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s term is up with no word yet on whether sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll seek a Ă&#x20AC;IWKWHUPLQWKHWK6HQDWH'LVWULFW while Janet Bewley is not up for re-elecWLRQXQWLO,QWKH$VVHPEO\1LFN Milroy, Romaine Quinn and Adam Jarchow, the three representatives serving Polk and Burnett counties, are all up for re-election. Milroy ran unopposed last time, while Quinn surprised Democrat Steve Smith and Jarchow won handily over Travis Schachtner. The composition of the Legislature will likely change in 2016 since the presidential election will bring more voters to the polls, which has favored Democrats in the past. Milroy is a likely winner since his district tends to run heavily Democratic. Quinn has kept a ORZSURĂ&#x20AC;OHUHODWLYHWR-DUFKRZRYHUWKH past year. The youngest member of the legislature at 25, he has pretty much YRWHGWKHSDUW\OLQHZLWKRQHH[FHSWLRQ a no vote on the Bucks arena, so his fortunes will largely be aligned with the Republican Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in 2016. Jarchow will have to answer for some controversial actions that have eroded the public trust and transferred more power to Madison this past year. Some have described his positions as selfserving, and a broad coalition of groups favoring local control and preserving our waterways is coalescing to oppose his re-election. The representative will OLNHO\KDYHKLVKDQGVIXOOĂ&#x20AC;JKWLQJWR retain his seat, especially if a strong candidate emerges early in the year.

â&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve sometimes heard it said that &KURQLFOHV I Forts Folle Avoine Historical Park is one of this areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hidden gems. Boy, ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that the truth? I mean sometimes my information source on Fort happenings, the Old Recluse, has a hard time Ă&#x20AC;QGLQJRXWLQIRXQWLOWKHODVWPLQXWHRQ various events scheduled there. Such appears to have been the case with an upcoming couple of days being billed as cross-country ski days at the Forts. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll try to clue you in here, based on what my pal, the Old Recluse, can decipher of the scraps of info heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obtained. So, on Sunday, Jan. 10, and again RQ6XQGD\)HE)RUWV)ROOH$YRLQH +LVWRULFDO3DUNLQWHQGVWRKRVWLWVĂ&#x20AC;UVW ever family cross-country ski event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Intendsâ&#x20AC;? could be a key word, as the activity is of course dependent on adequate snowfall around those dates. The hours are from noon to 3 p.m. each day, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entirely free to any and all. What few realize is that the historical park has had a cross-country trail system in place for years. The project was started several years back by old ski bum Buck Gooding and a cast of volunteers who still set up and maintain an open-to-the-public course of trails that wend their way through the wooded and open areas of the siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy grades and routes. Markers are rehabbed and placed each year. To use the trail system, one needs only to show up any day. Even if the main gates are closed, people can park at the entrance and follow the trail signs from there. The January and February events will use the same trails, but will be specially hosted by Jerry Becker, a ski buff and historical society board member. As-

Woodswhimsy the gnome sisted by a slew of volunteers, the day will also include an optional stop at the siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visitors center, where goodies like hot chocolate will be served. The siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gift shop will also be open so you can buy me appropriate presents for writing this on short notice. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m running low on wild rice, hint, hint. Thanks! According to Becker, â&#x20AC;&#x153;participants should just bring their skis, boots and gear for a fun afternoon. We will have both classical and skate-skiing trails open. Volunteers will also be on hand to answer any and all questions about techniques and gear.â&#x20AC;?
