    barbara kafka, cookbook author and writer, died this week. i was a big fan of her first microwave cookbook. there is still much disdain and ignorance about the ways that the microwave can be a useful tool and i remember her book being controversial when it came out.

    Bruce Cook

    Bruce was on the founding team of moderators and dreamers who created LTHforum.com an eon ago.

    Over the last few years, I sensed his presence more on facebook than LTHforum. This afternoon I recalled not hearing from him for a while. I flipped over to his facebook page to learn he died in January.

    One often used and cited trick I learned via Bruce: pour very hot water into an insulated container converting your 'cooler' to a hot box. Someone once grumbled Bruce was not the inventor, however he was my source on how to do this.

    Bruce is survived by his wife Mary.

    I read the obituary in the Sun Times, and he died from Lewy Body disease, which is a combination of dementia and parkinson's. When they did an autopsy on Robin Williams after he committed suicide, they found out he had it. Apparently Paul remarried only four years ago, and so I assume he had it then but was not diagnosed. I've taken care of three different men that had it, and in at least two of the cases, it took the family forever to get the right diagnosis.

    For those who watched The Boss series, the mayor had Lewy Body disease. It was the first time I was aware of this disorder.

    Ralph Paige, a nationally prominent advocate for black farmers who fought to save their land and to win them financial compensation for what they contended were years of government discrimination, died on June 28 in Atlanta. He was 74.
