dg, Need more apples here. Seem to be in area that doesn't have farm stands or local produce. Gonna google, again.
Have apple tree in a big planter to put in ground when things settle down here.

RR, So you got thru struggles with Chemistry? Vet school will still take you? Yeah!

Welcome 2uchngo.

Jayburt, Fresh is best way to eat anything from ground. Asparagus, beans, plums, peaches, tomatoes, peppers, herbs.

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. :)

If it doesn't freeze while you're attempting to take a bite! Are you lobbing/bobbing over there for a visit?

Heading into the weekend peeps.

Ann & Jay, Nothing beats a dressed homemade cheeseburger.

Dirt, If you noticed all fake guns now have bright orange tips to make sure you get laughed out of a bank stick up......hahahaha

Hope everyone has an eventful weekend that is free of drama, sickness, accidents and bad weather.

The equine science program is supposed to be 4 years, but I have most of it done with my pre-vet so I only plan on being here one year. I am enjoying it so I am glad I came over here for the extra schooling.

Apple Dumplings? I love those, although, I can't remember the last time I had one.

DG, must admit, I'm not much of a milk drinker. Just a little cream in my coffee is about it. You just can't escape the chemicals in our foods anymore, no matter how hard you try. I truly believe it has a direct effect on the increasing cancer rates in the world, just like I believe processed foods are the #1 cause of diabetes. Luckily, I just drink enough beer to flush all of that bad stuff out of my system. LOL

gold, Yep, those were the good old days. Being a kid with no responsibilities. lol As for the milk, what do you think they grow corn with to feed those cow? Fertilizer is made with petro chemicals. Not only does the price of milk go up but also the price of beef, pork and chicken. :(

rj, Don't encourage MadDog. lol Just think, we had cap guns growing up. Now it's hard to find a cap gun.

annette, Cinammon raisen bread is soooo good. Not too much cinammon though.

MadDog, Don't talk about me like I'm not here. ;) You know I only tease because you enjoy it. :)

RR, How long is the Equine Science program at RF?

Rebel, you can't go wrong with the extra stuff.

Gold, I still never grew up. Kind of like Peter Pan without the green tights. I had kids so I could have a permanent excuse. And yes, those were the good ole days.

Mad, I will always have your six bro.

Gold, I finished my Pre-vet degree and now I am adding on Equine Science. So basically everything about horses so i can specialize. I will still only have a 4-year Bachelors of Science but with the extra on top that will look good on a resume.

Looks like I missed some good convo.

Ann, I like turtles....hahaha Fried pickles are awesome. Favorite filling in a donut is Bavarian Cream.

Rebel, glad your having a great time at your new school.

Mad, there IS NO such thing as an EX Marine!! Ooh-Rah

Dirt, kids today have so much more instant gratification than we did that they wouldn't believe what we had growing up.

hat, You had tv dinners with brownies in them. I am so jealous, all we got was apple crisp. I hated those mixed veggies. My mom used the trays to make my grandma homemade tv dinners. Think I still have some of those trays left. lol

Hi gold.

Hi Jetta.

rj, If you told most kids today that that's how we used to get a clearer signal they wouldn't believe us. Amazing how fast the brain turns to mush. lol

Thanks for all the recommendations? for german food. =:o

Fwiw, I've noticed that a lot of kids today who are constantly on their cell phone texting can't carry on a regular conversation and also have trouble comprehending everyday clerical tasks. I wonder if it would help if they would take their headphones off. ;)

Real Old fashioned milkshakes like they had at the diners many years ago were the best things on earth! So thick you had to eat them with a spoon, so cold they froze your brain (maybe thats what happened to me?) and so good you thought heaven must be like this...
I vote that everyday should be 'Milkshake Day'

Dirt, I remember the aluminum TV dinner trays. I remember my grandmother used to reuse them outside for feeding the stray cats in the neighborhood. I also remember us kids always fighting to get the one with the brownie in it, not caring about what the rest of the meal was. LOL

rj, I think all of those are good descriptions. lol

annette, I haven't had Wienerschnitzel, I'm afraid to try most german food. lol You haven't lived until you've had a tv dinner...Especially the chicken ones with the mystery shaped chicken pieces in them. lol Fwiw, frozen dinners have improved 1000% since I was a kid.
