Can anyone else smell something burning? like plastic???    :?

I'm a little worried , last I spoke to Don he was wiring his bike, or at least talking about it...I know it's 8200miles from here to Rainagain but I can't help smelling electrical problems  :evil:



Wow, that was close.

The yellow wire has been replaced with red and the smoke detector silenced. :-o

Our county (Douglas) has been declared a disaster area do to a forest fire, and no I did not start it.

Thanks to Dr. G being familiar with the smell of hot yellow insulation a near disaster has been adverted. :-D

 Don

Oh by the way it is Rainagainandagain or were you just abbreviating.

The traditional Oklahoma recipe for gar has you nail it to a board. Y'all might think about amending your recipe, the board is probably a lot more tender and juicy than a stone.

When I was at boarding school they used to feed us mutton, and I'm not talking about 3 year old sheep....this stuff was likely old merino that wasn't worth shearing anymore because the fat on the chops was thin and yellow and they smelt like stinky old scrubbers , jeez it was bloody awful. After that stuff I could eat anything, anything, except mutton.....A stone? no problems, as long as it didn't smell like mutton.........

Once an old neighbour gave my sister a chicken and said " I think it might be a boiler", she roasted it and I kid you not we couldn't eat it, it smelt good, it looked good but it was the toughest thing I'd ever tried to chew and I still had all my teeth, it made the galah we'd had a crack at seem like fattened quail.It definitely should have been nailed to a board, and boiled for a week, or two.

Hey Don, I couldn't help but notice that Sparky edited your post....did you call me something that the cuss-filter didn't get or was it something                      else.....

Here's a shot from Natsumi Penberthy's Australian Geographic article taken by photographer Nick Cubbin, we look happy because we just ran 215.041mph.....



Because we managed to run that speed I got a hat.... oh yeah and I dunno if I told you but I got a dog too, well sort of a dog...I figure she's probably in the lower .1 percentile of dogs by weight...she's under 4lbs at 18 weeks...She's called Woogie...

Don't know if this link ever got posted, but I'm sure we'd be happy to get together a collection to replace Animal's trousers.

Woogie - that's the second shot I've seen of her.  Still has the curious, head-cocked, floppy-eared "I wonder" look in her eye.

Man, does that bring back memories. When I was in the Army, we flew from Germany to Benbecula in the Outer Hebrides and fired our missiles into the Atlantic from a British Royal Artillery Range there. We ate in their mess hall and I swear they had mutton for breakfast, mutton for lunch, and mutton for dinner! We looked forward to getting some C-rations to get a break from all that mutton. Arrggghhh.......   :-P

Chris, I know you're a cat man, I love cats, they taste just like.....er, Galah....no, in all seriousness I have had cats in the past but I also love my birds and the problem isn't just that they eat them, but they keep them at bay too, particularly the less urbanised ones. If you have a cat you will still have mynahs, but no honey-eaters. The issue with Woogie is quite the opposite, I'm worried that a seagull or something similar might pick her off......

The Colonel, is a cat man.

Doc, don't be spreading libelous rumors about me.

The cat's belong to Mrs. Midget.

I am not a "cat man", I am the unwitting warden in a felonious feline penal colony.

As to how they taste - dressing out a 12 lb. tabby isn't worth the meat you'd get off of 'em . . .
