Sinsull-

No, it's not the Mayan Calendar. It's a wonderful nautical calendar designed and published in the UK.

My confusion about the date has to do with the UK calendar format which has saturday and sunday next to themselves on the righthand side. Ugh!

Sorry about adding confusion to this thread.

Deb just left. The house is very quiet. She managed the drive in 5+ hours and was tired when she arrived but instead of a nap we talked and sang and enjoyed each others company.
Deb put on a wonderful evening of new and traditional music. The Matterhorn was a first for me. Her Darlin' Corey done acapello and bluesy slow is amazing.Lots of chorus songs with lovely harmonies from Jeri, Jacqui and Gordon.It was so good to have her back and catch up.
Tami and Jason were here along with a lady from Portland who does an AM radio program - sorry, name is gone for the moment.
Trubrit's Tom outdid himself with Shepherd's Pie to die for. Lots of food, drink, conversation. Jacqui produced breakfast with more conversation.I really enjoyed myself.Thank you all for adding to the evening.

It was a great evening. Deb, as usual, gave a superb performance in spite of not long having got over flu. She always finds some songs that invite audience participation, always enjoyed by this audience. Everybody seemed to enjoy the evening and it was nice to be able to introduce two consummate artistes to each other. Deb and Gordon spent some time talking and finding out what they had in common.

Kendall and Gordon left relatively early. I stayed over and the remaining four ladies finally got to bed around 1.30.

The other lady's name was Gail - the sister of a friend of Debs.

Now we want to try and get some house concerts in Maine for Deb and John Roberts, to make it worth their while to head up this way!

I'm not sure how it happened, but I found some cat hair on me.

Yes, it was a great time, and it was great to see the beautiful and talented Ms Cowan again. I didn't not like any of the songs, but there were old favorites among them, and some absolutely stunning new ones. The first one was one of those, but as I wasn't taking notes, I've forgotten the name of the song and composer. Hep me! Hep me! Truly, it was so easy to get lost in a song and completely forget all else.

Glad to see Gordon again--glad to see everyone who made it. The shepherd's pie was to-die-for, as was the key lime pie. All the food was wonderful. And Alice actually fell asleep on my lap and didn't want to get off. Velcro cat.

I sang "Tired O'Workin'". "The Jute Mill Song" is the one that starts with "O dear me, the mill is gang fast".

Many of the textile mills in Dundee were called "Jute Mills" because that was the fiber that was used in spinning. A good explanation of the substance called jute. can be found by clicking the link.

12 Italian sausages hot and mild.
5 large green peppers, seeded and sliced into thick ribbons
5 large onions sliced into thick rings
Lots of black pepper

Brown sausages on medium high. Remove to large lidded pot
Add peppers and onions. Sprinkle with black pepper. Cover and let cook for about an hour lowering heat to Low half way through.

It shouldn't need salt. The sausages have more than enough.
