I dunno, Bunnahy-boy, iffen these instructions are particularly welcome. See, the MOAB excels at what it does because it is self-organizing, a loose affiliation of self-enabling and reciprocally empowering elite peers, if you see what I mean. As to them silly spin-off threads, well, I have done told them the fueliddity of their ways. So iffen they don't wanna lissen to me, well, I ask you, whose problem is that? Not mine, you know, not mine for certain sho'.

Tell ya what -- YOU go over there and disguise yourself as one of them insipid uninspired spit-dribblers pretending to do BS and see if you can raise the tone a little. THEN you can bring 'em over.

You think we accept just ANY ole energy here? This is a quality outfit, pard. Quality.

Why all the parody threads at the minute? The combined creative energy that has gone into these could sustain MOAB for hours! We need to seduce these misguided people into the MOAB Hedgemony with the utmost haste, and convince them to the point of evangalising all and sundry to as the rectitude and veracity of MOAB as the true path.

They shall be taught to shun those pale and paltry Mayflies of threads, and offer praise to MOAB with puns, poetry, physics, prattle, and painfully obvious alitteration. They shall not care for '00s, and shall smite Flamenco Ted mightily in anticipaition of his sins. Context and common sense shall flee before these messengers of the word!

That's what going to happen, now you lot have to make it happen. Get going. Smartly, please.

Bunnahabhain.

Well, the Truth Is Out There, and MOAB has lots more of it than anyplace else. In fact, the MOAB has not only whole truths, but truths-and-a-half and even more. It's a good place to look for it, it certainly is.

well - here I am again - ready to plumb the depths of the MOAB in search of enlightenment.

Pitiful, ain't i?

But I have crucial, burning questions that need to be answered - such as:

If Martha *Has* broken her parole - How long will it take to heal? And will she have to wear a cast?


Will LtS ever find the source of her guinea Pig song (or did her Da just make it up?)

Will Liz ever think to start a thread at mudcat re: the above?

Is the Pope an Ivory billed Woodpecker - or will acoustic analysis show him to be nothing but a recording of the 'Nights Templar and the Illuminauts'?


Why does the "predicting your age by chocolate" ask me how often I would like to have chocolate a week - then restrict me to less then 10. that doesn't get me through a day. (breakfast, 2nd breakfast, car snack, brunch, coffee break, elevenses, small lunch, lunch, snack, late snack, tea, late tea, hor d'hourves, dinner, supper,ante-dormir)

Will corridus the Hamster returtn?

NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!

Pay no attention. I'm just trying to beat back the Google ads for that insipid '70s "symphonic rock" group whom I cannot name here for fear of further triggering whatever utility Google uses to site their ads.

Better yet, I shall click on the Google ad about a zillion times so that Google will pay Max lots of money and the "store" will have to pay Google so much money they will go into bankruptcy. That'll get rid of 'em!

Actually, 2003 was a really bad year. We had separate killing frosts around March 1st and March 15th. Our bushes are wild so they don't all bloom at once (like the ones in the U-pick farm up the highway), but two hard freezes during blooming season got almost all the blooms. We had maybe 10% of our usual crop.

Maybe I'll bring some of the blackberries that used to be along the roadside before they got mowed down.

Blueberry Muffins

preheat oven to 400o

Mix together:
1 cup white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

cut in:
1/4 cup shortening

add:
1/2 cup milk (I use soy milk)
1 egg, slightly beaten

Myffins will be available on the Mudcat Tavern bar, in a covered Tupperware container over in the corner out of harms way of flying jello, flapping ducks, etc.

Mix (washed) fresh blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries (or chose any single one, I don't care) and sprinkle with sugar (or Splenda). Toss together so that the berries become slightly bruised and the juices run out. After all the flavors are blended with the sweetner, serve over scones or angel food cake. Top with creme fraiche or whipped cream.

As an option, throw a little Chambord into the berries....

The Rapaire
By Rutic Rebel

I have come in a stately disguise, with trouser pockets full of dried blueberries.
I know of what I speak of mainly, for cause and justice and I fear not a bluish tounge that will whip a frenzy of a mannerish thought into an air of discreet notion and pentance, I will reveal.
My manner is but lofty and distiguished, as I saunter with my pocketful, and maintain a wishful thought that it remain so, as I casually taste of the sweet fruit upon my tounge buds.
Be it so sweet, like an air of flowered desire, for I am not of sour or salt.
My scent of rational thought lingers with an epicurism of fiendish delight, yet I am softened of belly.
Let the law of life revel inside, as I languish in the empathy of blueberry pocket treats, and permeate a breath of inspired blessedness unto the bluish stains of my fingertips.

You want blueberries? Have I ever mentioned that I have thousands of blueberry bushes, some the size of small trees, on my property? Have I mentioned that the usual early March cold snap that always seems to kill about half of the flowering buds on the blueberry bushes didn't happen this year? Have I mentioned that lots of my blueberry bushes that used to bear poorly because they were in the shade are now in the sunlight due to the trees that were shading them having been blown down? Have I mentioned that, in other words, I'm gonna have a shitload of blueberries this summer?

Now, if we can only have some reasonable temperatures when prime blueberry pickin' time gets here in July...

Yeah, right! Reasonable temperatures in July in Florida! Hah!

On the wide prairies between Laramie and Boulder, where the yellow flowers are firing up in the Spring, and the nodding grasses whisper in the sunset, there's a place where the sloping meadows run down to a broad creek. The creek is known as Little Bear. There's a broad turn to the creek where it is very wide, swing from south-west to south-by-west and forming a pleasant dell in its elbow. In that dell there is a crude plank building, with a wide porch, the lumber all adzed and crudely matched, the chinks stopped with adobe from the wetland. It is large and rambling, with outbuildings, small add-ons, and a wide gravel-and-dirt road that comes over the hill and down to the house and then peters out before it falls in the creek. There are oaks, ash, and a mess of half-breed stuff growing along the banks further down. It is a pleasant place, especially in a soft Spring evening. You can hear the whippoorwills getting their chorus on, and when the moon rises of the hills you can hear a coyote sometimes, looking for sympathy. It's a sturdy warm house, well built if crudely, and it stays warm all winter through.

That's a good place for a Mudcat Tavern. The lights are kerosene, the refrigeration is by cool-box. But there's a big roasting pit and a swimming hole at the creek turn. And ya never know who'll drop in for a pint of moonshine. The bar in particularly is well stocked with stuffs all the way from Denver. Never runs dry.

I was just thinking myself that the tavern hadn't been open for a while. You'll have to clear out all of the tree needles and such (tip it on end is what I threaten to do to clean my house, and a Mudcat, you really can clean a place that way!)

Locale--how about a nice warm and sunny place, not a cold and rainy one. You could use my back yard, but you'll have to be careful about the poison ivy back by the creek, and I don't want that jello pit turning my driveway into a slippery mess. Move it toward the back so visitors won't step in the veggie garden.   

That's just one suggestion. The honeysuckle is in full-bloom, there are lots of songbirds, and the June bugs aren't too bad yet.

Any suggestions for where it should be located this time around? Decor? themed or not?

No garuntees of course - you know how difficult it is to be precise when dealing with multiple sub-space dimensional coordinate conversions.

Loverly bit. Tyhe thought arose that it is a good thing we don't have any Biblical literalists about the house. They would be annoyed by our confusion of the tribes -- the Moabites mixed up with the children of Babylon and the confounded builders of Babel. On the other hand no-one ever said those things would never change. I think they have.
