Barry, well, if you have to be born in New England to really appreciate lobster in every possible way, then I labor under a slight disadvantage having been born in Egypt. Perhaps there is no hope for me? Perhaps that is why I discard the legs (? - are they legs??) disdainfully and eschew the green stuff. I'll await the lesson with bated breath - truly!

Liz - hope to be in England briefly in October of 2007 -- perhaps I can look you up? Smuggling lobsters in is probably not on the cards -- they are alive (til the fateful moment of the pot, of course) so it's a little bit unsubtle to stroll through the Green line at Customers -- carrying a brown paper bag with water dripping out (from the ice) and wriggling.....!!!!

Chanteyranger - thank you, too, for the welcome!

We can share Liz's lobster but she may want to try it after watching how it's done & I'll show you how to do the tounge & innards thing. You really have to be born to the New England coast to suck lobster with your tounge. Kinda of like Cindy sipping cider thru a straw.
Se ya soon & happy hoildays

Barry - thank you for the welcome! Nice to hear from you. The 2nd finished up being tiny, but that is ok -- it was there for them as could make it.

It took me 7 years of living in Maine before I could eat one, but I do eat lobsters. So when Liz comes over from the UK, I'll fight you for her lobster! I don't do too much with the innards and the tongue but perhaps I am still a novice.............??

So happy to have met you at the Getaway. Hope our paths will cross.....you can really sing!!

I some how missed you & this thread Deb. I'm glad to see that you're here. I wished I could've made it up north for the 2nd but it wasn't in the cards. It's nice to have another delightful Main-e-ack amongst us, we just can't have to many.
Liz if you do come over you don't have to eat the lobster but you do need to watch the rest of us/them tear into them. It's some site to behold. New Englanders forget their manners altogether & whatever table ware there was set out. They start with hands & fingers ripping them apart, pounding with fists on the shells that won't shred, pulling legs from sockets & sucking & grinding them til there's not a drop of meat or juice left, snapping the backs in half & reaching into their cavities to slide their inards out with their tounges. This is the ritual & it's done so the folks that don't know about lobsters won't try them. So when you do come over can I have yours?
I should've asked Deb, do you eat lobsters? I know Mary's a bit squimish about them.
Now I forgot how I came across this tread, anyway, glad to have found you.
Hopefully we'll cross paths soon.
Happy Hoildays
Barry

Tami,
Before you take Joe too seriously, remember who was jumping around joyfully in a battery-operated blow up horse costume. The pot calling the kettle black.

Manitas,
I serve but do not cook or eat lobster. You can join me in a steak, hamburger, hot dog or steak 'n kidney pudding. Your choice.

Hiya Deb! Congrats for finally making the jump.

And Joe, whaddaya mean by that remark about Deb being the only sane woman from ME at the Getaway this year? What did I do to earn the loony designation (other than be seen in the company of Sinsull and jacqui)?

I pm'd Jacquie C and said the Welcome TruBrit thread had disappeared but she assured me otherwise so I checked again........I will have to get used to how incredibly active this site is. Thank you all so much for your welcomes.....as Jacquie says we will be hosting a song circle at our house on December 2 - love to see as many of you there as possible -- the house is infinitely expandable (Lynn and Tom - beginning to think you don't love me -- you ALWAYS come to Sinsull's and NEVER to me -- oh, all right, I've only hosted one gathering with one to come but that is two you never come to!!!!!) Just teasing - I know you will make one soon. I'll pass your kind words about the letters on to Tom - he is the author.

Georgeous - yes, that was my car. We realtors are not subtle -- any advertising opportunity is one not to be missed......my car is well known in Maine!

I feel very welcomed and very happy to be part of a group that doesn't think I am totally wierd for loving this odd music and wanting to sing it - voice or no!! Tinker, keep the pillow - if my experience of a houseful of teenagers is the same as yours, one can never have too many pillows!!!!

Happy day after thanksgiving to one and all.

No, Joe, she's a lovely loonie -- like the rest of us. (If I didn't keep my present level of insanity, I'd go crazy.)

Nice to have Deborah not only at Sinsull's gatherings but here at Mudcat!

(Wish she wouldn't schedule "her" events on evenings Curmudgeon and I can't make it, damn.)

I LOVE her newsletters! (and website) (And Tom's curry at least as much as I love Curmudgeon's curry!)

Well, now the traditional Boxing Day Hunt has been banned, you can go out Mumming with any one of several Mummers in the UK. I'm sure Herga Mummers will need a spare body if you're anywhere near London. Manitas has his own dress these days, but I'm sure we can fix you up with something if you need a costume!

Jacqui told me that caps were a no go-----I will remember next time!!!! It was so much fun to be around people who didn't think me insane for liking this kind of music!!!!!!! TruBrit is because I am British (get it?????) -- as Mary said I am a realtor and a good one......those of you I actually met will be getting nice to have met you letters....... We do a newsletter about six times a year that has nothing to do with real estate and everything to do with an English idiosyncrasy (? sp) like Boxing Day or Guy Fawkes day and you are on it if you receive my intro letter - let me know if you want to be off the mailing list and it will happen.....

TRUBRIT is a lady after my own heart, screaming her entry in CAPS. And she doesn't even have a problem with the infamous CAPSLOCK button.

She is a wonderful lady, a mischievous friend and a first rate real estate agent. Both Jacqui and I got our homes through her. Some of you met her at the Getaway. She of "She's stopped snoring. Maybe she's dead...GOOD!" And I who do not snore was not the target.

Deborah is a regular at my Song Circles and has been growing her collection of songs. I will let her tell you what she chooses about herself. Please welcome her.
