A dish with pig legs, mustard and rotmos (Turnip mash. Tastes like sweet potatoes).
Owe Thörnqvist* Rotmos Rock from 1956
First Swedish song with the word rock? ..

Very colorful; not very appetizing though... :~0-


I don't know. I looks pretty good to me.

One of the kittens loves to snuggle with me at bedtime. I must confess that
it brings me great joy. It really does. I call this one "Sibby." You can see
Buddy's butt, too, at the bottom right of the photo. This is where he
normally sleeps until he realizes there's a cat touching him. Then he moves. Silly dog.



(Wow. Look at those age spots. I guess I need to get some cream or something.)

Here is my Kiwi. I think he looks a lot like your girl, Eva.

It sort of looks like the white color is leaking down his
chest from his nose.





Eva.

I think you get a sense of her character from this picture.

I hope you can salvage some of her babies if you do Sue :) She was a good mum so something must have driven her off.


Or maybe it was just "her time." :-(


:( I didn't want to say that, but yes :( I read on that blog link I posted that they don't get past the first frost :(


Here in central Texas we sometimes don't have any frost at
all! That's why we have so many bugs.

I took the first egg sac down and put it into a container in
the house. We'll see what happens. It may be a few months
before any spiderlings emerge, if any do at all.

Interesting information. I've seen a lot of spider wasps around my house. I've entertained the thought that maybe they're responsible for the removal of the
egg sacs. I suppose I'll never know, though.

Now that mom's gone, maybe I'll take the last sac - which is actually the first
sac - and bring it into the house over the winter. Maybe.

Nature can be cruel, but it seems to know what it's doing.

And swiss cheese is not swiss, [PavelChekov]it's a Russian inwention.[/PavelChekov](seriously it's as American as Apple Pie)


That's like the "California Stop" when you're driving a car. It's
the California Stop everywhere but in California. There it's the
"Hollywood Stop."

I suppose we should call it Swiss-style cheese. But I'm okay with
calling it Swiss cheese.

It's possible to buy Emmentaler cheese in the US. I wonder if that's
also made in America.

:)))))) great picture Sue

Very sorry to hear about the disappearing egg sacs :(

Found this on a blog by Bug Eric

Various parasites and predators can take their toll on the egg sacs and spiderlings, however. One study found that 19 species of insects and 11 species of other spiders emerging from the egg sacs of Argiope aurantia. Chief among the parasites were the ichneumon wasp Tromatopia rufopectus, and the chloropid fly, Pseudogaurax signatus. The overwhelming predators of the egg sacs are birds. Nearly every egg sac found in the wild during the study had suffered damage from birds


:(

She looks very much like my Kiwi.

I'll have to take a picture and post it.

Another egg sac has gone missing, and the spider is gone,
as well. It makes me sad. Oh well. I'll see some argiopes
again next year.

One of the three eggs sacs has gone missing. I don't know
if it's the second or third sac that she made.

Does anyone know of egg sac predators?

Don't try this Swedish dish at home.
Surströmming!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surstr%C3%B6mming
When opened, the contents release a strong characteristic ammonia-like odor; the dish is ordinarily eaten outdoors. According to a Japanese study, a newly opened can of surströmming has one of the most putrid food smells in the world, even more so than similarly fermented fish dishes such as the Korean Hongeohoe or Japanese Kusaya.
In April 2006, several major airlines (such as Air France and British Airways) banned the fish, citing that the pressurised cans of fish are potentially explosive.



Combine with Limburger cheese.

Buy calves liver, soak it in Milk for a while. Saute it gently in Butter, Onions and Bacon. Do Not over-cook; just get most of the pink to disappear. It is really good tasting, and so are chicken livers--for these: add Mushrooms, and serve over a plate of rice (Filipino Style).

In the old days of American Indians, the hunter was awarded the organ meats.


How long is "a while"?

Here's the link to my crow video. I noticed there were a lot of
them coming around, so one day I went with peanuts. I'm throwing
peanuts to them in this video. Just the crows in this video. Not
me.

Here's a photo of me with Ronald Raven at the Tower of London in 1990.

This guy is gorgeous!






I think I posted a video on YouTube of crows I was feeding when I
was in Germany. I was throwing peanuts to them. I'll see if I can
find it and post a link here.

I also enjoyed the ravens at the Tower of London. You can get quite
close to them.

If you want the best Fruit Cake made and that simply isn't a horrible brick, this place makes simply delicious cakes, My family for years ordered this companies fruit cakes, nothing artificial here, straight out of Corsicana Texas too... Collin Street Bakery. They come in a box and inside that a Tin w/a resealable lid, see inset of picture.



I believe these are world-famous fruitcakes. Or at least
they're nationally famous. I saw a TV thing about them,
or maybe it was on the interwebs.


Okay, I guess I should have read all the posts before I
wrote this one.

My mom used to bake christmas bricks (fruit cake) but they were a pain. She had to buy small containers of all the fruits and nuts that go into the cake and us kids weren't exactly big fruit cake eaters. I think the reason they are associated with christmas is because after your treat it with the booze, they need to sit a while before eating for the flavors to blend. In the old days, the lack of refrigeration meant you needed the cold weather to properly age the cakes before eating. Now days the could be prepared any time of the year but by tradition we do it at christmas time.


Don't worry, Dena. Nobody is a big fruitcake eater!

Sue,

It's NOT much; however, it's all I can afford right now... I donated $10. God bless and good luck.


Thank you, too!

You people are lovely, you know that?!!!
