Friday Distractions -- Random Links & Recipes Bookmarked

Ready for the weekend? To help you pass your Friday here are the highlights of what distracted me this week online, what I bookmarked that I hope to one day eat, and a picture.    

Never-before-seen photos from 100 years ago tell vivid story of gritty NYC. Boardwalk Empire fans - there is a mug shot of Charles 'Lucky' Luciano!

"Does Hollywood create a false expectation that love conquers all? Does the 'meet cute' story line have some play in the long-term success or demise of a marriage? Maybe it would help to realize that we do not know what happens to the happy couple after we leave the theater." Read Jane L. Rosen's hypotheses about how some popular romantic comedy relationships turned out in Are Harry And Sally Still Happily Married? (via Jeff)

"We’ll inevitably face challenges in life. The best defense is believing that we are strong, we will survive, and we will be better for it." Tiny Wisdom: Believe That You Are Strong

Peter Dinkelage doesn't like the word luck. His thoughts reminded me of the Thomas Jefferson quote Chris S. shared with me a few years ago -- "I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it."

Angel cleverly highlights that we may be eating more than we think. Yikes.
