RJ....her laptop is fixed....mine is broke!

DG...no...my friend's laptop is my old one...I gave it to her...it has Vista Home Premium on it and I reformatted it with no bloatware. This computer runs great! Mine had Windows 7 Pro on it and running like crap. I think I may have picked up something when I was at our hotel in OK. Think I'm going to reformat it this weekend!

Ann...again? They are slacking on us! Everyday should be national food day! LOL

annette, Oh boy, cider is perfect for the cool weather. :)

MadDog, Hope you're not trying to fix a laptop with XP. Quick hurry and get a windows 7 before they're all gone. Fwiw, mulled cider is just apple cider with allspice, cinnamon sticks and cloves warmed up. You can usually get instant spiced cider in the grocery store which is pretty darned good. :)

2uchngo, Hope your Thursday is good. :)

teejay, Don't rush the white stuff. :(

rj, Never even thought about the heat cooking the road kill. :)

Pre-Hump Day Hello's.

Ann, you could only imagine the stuff people eat from the south. Roadkill actually has a 5 minute rule here.

Mad, sorry for the laptop blues. I totally get that at times. Glad to see you back in.

Dirt, I would be fine with a happy medium.

Thanks everyone for coming up with game ideas. Possum? I don't think so for this girl.

DG...yeah...figured as much....I work on the equipment anyways...don't touch the mail unless I have to! LOL I was wondering what Ohio had to do with anything...that's why I questioned it! :P

Sorry I've not been around. Been on the road and had some laptop problems. Fixed a friend's laptop and using it until I can figure out why mine is being a pain in the rear! Great to see each and every one of you!

Ann....being a hill billy and a Marine...I've eaten all sorts of game....some that I don't even care to mention...my cousin made great food, but half the time he didn't tell me what it was until after I ate a bunch of it. The jerk! LOL Deer is probably my favorite out of all of it. Rattlesnake is pretty good too! Squirrel is tough chicken...lol Alligator...yummy! My cousin's possum stew was good...but got his butt whipped after I found out what it was. His response....it didn't stop you from eating 3 bowls of it until after you found out what it was...must have been my good moonshine that made you hungry! His butt got whipped! LOL I miss that guy though...idiot drank so much home brew, that it killed him at 29. I was 24 when that happened. :(

Haven't been here in a while, interesting reading back in time. RE: Fish, living in Maine means we eat lots of fish, mostly saltwater, haddock, hake, pollack, clams, oysters, mussels (occasionally) and, but of course, Maine lobster! Game, venison (deer), duck, quail, woodcock, I also had pheasant years ago, and elk and caribou. Don't eat bear. I have never had moose either though it is popular here in Maine. There also was a place called the Roadkill Cafe which served, yes you guessed it, roadkill(sure....). Link to the menu is here (and its fun to read):

Thanks dirt and Jay for the game ideas. Sounds like I need to date a hunter to get a real sense of game food tasting. Hmmm, date a hunter, sounds hot! LOL.

Nevertheless, what goes good with fish and game or German food? Today is National Drink Beer Day! Reminds me, I tell my bf that he never listens to me and only hears what he wants to hear. "Sure, I'll have a beer", he says while playing on his XBOX. Ugh! :)

Add another fish lover in please ;) love Salmon as well as the northern freshwater species listed, especially spring crappies (a favorite of mine) and eat game to, dg I have an old family recipe for duck that we've made forever..will admit I hunt with a camera anymore,rather than with the guns {although I swing a fishing pole as often as I can}.
I just realized something..this thread has added 10lbs. to me!We talk about food and it makes me hungry! LOL

annette, I like salmon but also like pan fish like sunfish, crappies and bullheads, not to mention northern and walleye. As far as game goes, duck and goose are good. Game in general tends to have it's taste affected by what it eats...so deer that has been eating corn out of the fields will taste a lot better than deer in an area where it eats mostly pine trees.

Jayburt, Count me in on the pancakes. :)

Welcome back roadjet, and everyone else whose been missing for a bit.
Pancake day and I have a old buttermilk recipe that was originally from an army chef back from the old days(cut down from 50 servings ;) that I'll start making for everyone, Blueberry syrup works for me and real old fashioned maple syrup does too.
Annette dieting is not right when hotcakes are coming off the grill!
dirt girl we went from 80's and humid to barely 70's and some cool evenings, even though its supposed to be high 70's coming up. Trees are just starting to turn here on the border with Michigan.

Ann, how about we call today Pluckers wings and Beer day in honor of me. I will be watching some football this weekend at a local wingery.

Hope everyone is enjoying their regions weather as much as I have. It is getting rather Fall-like around here.

Planning on shopping for new LED lighting to replace my high watt halogen landscape lights this weekend as well as celebrating my "mini me" b-day.

Have a VERY safe and exciting weekend. Make sure to LIVE well so we can live vicariously through you.......lol

Hi everyBUDDY!

First, a confession for the record. I am not single. Don't shoot, I visit in peace.

Hi to my good friend Ann. And hi to 2uchngo who I think is a new/old friend.

My two sources say that this is: National Cherries Jubilee Day!

If you enjoy cherries, you must absolutely love this day. Cherries Jubilee is easy to make. All you need is a can of cherry pie filling, some cognac (or brandy) and vanilla ice cream. I would add a mound of whipped cream with a cherry, stem attached, on top of it all.

Make today as sweet as a cherry. Enjoy National Cherries Jubilee Day to the max!

...Hmmmn...No "official" National food day ay? Well, since it was Tuesday the Twenty-third of September, perhaps foods that start with a terrific Tuesday "T" could have been a good choice, i.e.: talapia, t-bone steak, tamarindo, tiramisu, tortellini, trout, tortilla, trifle, truffles, Trix, eTc...

...Anyhow, mates, time to check for light leaks! Wishing you fun flights & happy landings for a wonderful Wednesday everybuddy! :)

Have apple tree in a big planter to put in ground when things settle down here.

Yum again! Not much a sweets eater but National Pecan Cookie Day works for me as I love pecans.
dirt girl, we get many varieties of apples here and since I'm on the Michigan border and they are known for apples too we have a nice selection to choose from. Best fresh off the tree washed in a pump well, nice and crisp.
roadjet, they did the orange tips to supposedly stop you from getting shot by the police,although I bet in the dark if you pointed one at them you'll still need to have your will in order,lol.People need to be careful with all guns.
Hope everyone has a great day, and a even better night

Mmmm, appples. My LEAST favorite apple is honeycrisp. Too many other apple varieties that were developed in MN that IMHO taste better. Unfortunately for the rest of you, you probably don't get those varieties in your area.

Pecan cookies are good though. :)
