Ah, such wisdom, Man of Emms.

By the way, in case you wondered about my sporadic appearance on the 'Cat, the following excerpt from the UK Guardian describing the reorganization of the Government there will explain everything:

"Ed Miliband - David Miliband's younger brother - was promoted to secretary of state for the Cabinet Office and chancellor of the duchy of Lancaster. Andy Burnham, formerly a junior health minister, also takes a seat in cabinet as chief secretary to the Treasury.

And Baroness Ashton replaces Baroness Amos who stepped down yesterday as leader of the Lords."

Now that that's over I may be appearing more regularly here. I prefer to stay regular when possible.

I always look for the essence beneath the dross, but all too often I find that there is only dross beneath the dross. In fact, I find that some things are dross clear through. Often these are called "politicians."

Amos - when you learn to view the essence below the dull dross revealed to mortal eyes; Uncle Remus and Mr. Miyagi, Obi Wan, Yoda, Bugs; they are all very similar.

I personally love Mister Miyagi. I am f9ond of Uncle Remus as well, and respect both of them enough not to belittle them by confusing their proper titles.

This is the thread that never ends
it goes on and on my friends
some people started posting
not knowing what they'd wrought
and we continue posting
treasuring the thought
This is the thread that never ends. . .

GMTA==God Makes Trophies for Amos. The kind of mental reservations you are speaking of, clearly, is the sort where a small desert area, plagued with drought and poverty, is used to cordon off unfortunate souls. Fortunately I neither make nor occupy such reservations. If I did I would have condemend Rapaire to one years back, but I have shown discipline and compassion and constraint and humility and largesse of spirit.

"but the one I want is 18081, which reads the same backwards, upside down, or reflected in a mirror"

As does 18181 and 18881. So, there are numbers for all.

18009 IS pretty special.....(I guess)...but the one I want is 18081, which reads the same backwards, upside down, or reflected in a mirror.

With that, I presume I have shot all to hell my chances of getting it.

Yeah, but Bill D. snagged not only 18,000 but 18,009!! And THAT is a number far, far more potent than the 18,006 I got totally and completely unknowingly and by accident.

In fact, I had put in a mental reservation for Amos.

Whaddya mean "who never posts to MOAB"? Look at sections 2 & 3! Why I was even praised by the founder at one time!


Somehow, this seemed a consummate piece of BS....I was just browsing, and there in the list was 17,999! I went in, expecting any of a dozen suspects to be pouncing as I looked...but NO!

I can resist anything but temptation.

Thank you, one & all...I shall return when you least expect it. Maybe about 36,000...

please carry on...

*sob* I've been waiting for *ever* so long for post 18,006; and RAPAIRE stole it!

The numbe is so significant, what with the second triad being 3 times the first triad; and the first triad having two zeroes, while the significant digit of the triad is twice three, whereas the second tried is twice nine; and nine is three squared, which is so appropriate for being the seond triad of the number.

WAAAAHHHHHH!

MOM! Rapaire's cheating again!

Please note the self-restraint, the self-discipline, the temperance, with which I did not snatch the 18,000th post but stopped at 17,999. This left it for another to claim the glory and once again proves my humilty and modesty and how much I shun the spotlight and, after doing the work, leave the fame to others. Yes, I am like the publican standing in the back of the Temple, beating his breast and saying "Lord, be merciful to me, a sinner" and not like the Pharisee loudly boasting of how he prays and gives to the poor and lives his life in the fullest compliance to the Law. Or like the humble roadie who insures that The Star's concert proceeds flawlessly.

No, I would not want to snatch the 18,000th post.






























Dibs of 666,666!

I let them age naturally in the yard, and then gather them. I find that four or five days is usually (but not always!) enough for a good "cure." If they need more than that I use a mashie or a niblick.

Do you blanch them and use an ice bath, or do you hammer them with a meat mallet? Or perhaps you use a chemical treatment, like a sulphuric acid bath?

I steam them until a serrated-blade steak knife that is inserted in the middle, down to the choke, slips free easily. Then I try to pull off one of the outermost leaves; if it comes off easily I know the 'choke is done.

It depends on whether you're steaming them with or without the locally harvested golf balls. If they're recently retrieved from the yard, they're tender and steam quickly and compliment the artichokes nicely. If it is a ball that has lodged in a grassy hillock somewhere near the fence and been sun-baked for weeks or months, steaming takes considerably longer. And forget marinades, they just don't help. You need to serve them with a strong flavored sauce.

Or perhaps a prelude of fresh artichokes, steamed over white wine with dill and lemon, served with hollandaise for dipping? Then a summer entree of pasta salad with lox-style smoked salmon, a chilled white wine or fresh, homemade lemonade with a sprig of fresh mint, warm bisuits with butter, and chilled watermelon for dessert? Then an evening sitting on the deck, talking and laughing at the golfers as the sun sinks behind the Snowy Mountains, turning the golf course and back yard golden with its light?
