  1. I have a ton of fresh picked berries right now, and I'm looking forward to picking more throughout the summer. I have marionberries, salmonberries, raspberries, and blueberries--there are also a few sala berries, and in 2 weeks or so, I'll have more blackberries than I could possibly hold. Anyone have any tasty suggestions or tried-and-true recipes for these babies?
  2. Heya Damien. Congrats on the show--it'll be a hit for sure. Your photos are beautiful as always.
  3. Hey tough stuff!

    Hoping all is well in cheery MN!

  4. Hey there, Ransom. I agree with you about the Meadow of Love--delish! Hope you enjoy your stay.
  5. Thank y'all for the wishes--it was a great day. Jules, I did play with the kids, and I got 2 more pages done against the last paper of my Master's program. 26 more days!
  6. Happy late birthday Dakini--hope all is well.
  7. The "absinthe" pattern has been around for a few years. Target should maybe reword the description.
  8. Wow! I'm never one to knock hot dish, but this prize I received today is the greatest tangible thing I've ever gotten from the mid-west! Right now I am enjoying the "P" version, and it is out of this world. Congrats and thanks, you. WWS has such a good thing going.
  9. I had a few glasses of aquavit with a late dinner of venison sausage, rich gratin Dauphinois, and fridge pickles. I'm going to go enjoy my coma now.
  10. I heard this song for the first time on KMHD yesterday. Lyrics by Andy Razof Recorded by: Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys - 1942; Phil Harris - 1947; Nolan Bruce Allen; Buddy Blue; Cliff Bruner; Moon Mullican; Red Stick Ramblers; Rollin' In The Hay. Won't you come with me to Alabamy Let's go see my dear old Mammy She's fryin' eggs and boiling hammy That's what I like about the South Now there you can make no mistakey Where those nerves are never shaky Ought to taste her layer cakey That's what I like about the South She's got baked ribs and candied yams Those sugar-cured Virginia hams Basement full of those berry jams An' that's what I like about the South Hot corn bread, black-eyed peas You can eat as much as you please 'Cause it's never out of season That's what I like about the South Aahhh, don't take one, have two There's dark brown and chocolate too Suits me, they must suit you 'Cause that's what I like about the South Well it's way, way down where the cane grows tall Down where they say "Y'all" Walk on in with that Southern drawl 'Cause that's what I like about the South Down where they have those pretty queens Keep a-dreamin' those dreamy dreams Well let's sip that absinthe in New Orleans That's what I like about the South Here come old Bob with all the news Got the boxback coat with button shoes But he's all caught up with his union dues An' that's what I like about the South Here come old Roy down the street Ho, can't you hear those tappin' feet He would rather sleep than eat An' that's what I like about the South Now every time I pass your door You act like you don't want me no more Why don't you shake that head and sigh And I'll go walkin' by On, on, on and on and on Honey, when you tell me that you love me Then how come you close your eyes Did I tell you 'bout the place called Doo-wah-diddy It ain't no town and it ain't no city It's just awful small, but awful pretty That's Doo-wah-diddy Well I didn't come here to criticise I'm not here to sympathise But don't tell me those no-good lies That a lyin' gal like you can devise You love me like I love you Send me fifty P-D-Q Roses are red and violets are pink If I don't get all fifty, I don't show She's got backbones and turnip greens Ham hocks and butter beans You, me and New Orleans An' that's what I like about the South
  11. I am looking for a couple of different sparkling wines--one for special occasions, and another for really special occasions. That's about all the criteria I have. Any recommendations?
  12. Water, and lots of it. We hit 106 this afternoon.
  13. I feel I must inform you that a) many women, ladies even, frequent this board, and 2) welcome aboard.
  14. We busted 100 degrees last week. Thankfully, I guess, it's only 90 now. The first Pimm's Cup of the season!
