Re: blind men on galloping horses

It's in French! But they put pictures with the ingredients so I should be able to figure it out. Thank you!

Re: blind men on galloping horses

They tried it and liked it. There was enough for another meal. Then in the night the farmer and his wife were woken by a noise. The three daughters were in the kitchen eating the rest of the rabbit stew - including the one who was vegetarian. The taste of well-cooked rabbit will convert anyone! :D ...

Re: blind men on galloping horses

Liver and onions I still have regularly. Boiled beef heart and tripe is more difficult as the ingredients are less available. I love liver & onions - always have. But found out it was because we ate rabbit liver, not beef liver. That's one of the main reasons I raise rabbits. :) I suppose calf live...

Re: Peachy

I agree with Trolley. Also I have never heard it used in the way Steven suggests. Steven's usage sounds as though it may associated with that black, rap culture (are we allowed to say "black"?) Also I have never heard "douche bag", it sounds like a shower/wash bag but I would have to look it up. ht...

It's called a spoiler & as far as I know, it's just for looks. The young lady found a practical use for it!

Re: Open the door

I'd use "could" rather than "will" in that situation. Could you get that? Could you open the door, please? Tho the last always starts that song going in my head: Open the door, Richard/Richard why don't you open the door! Yeah - I'm old - but not THAT old! I used to love listening to the oldies when...

Re: Convenience shops

I live in too small of a town for that - most, if not all, of the convenience stores close by midnight. It used to be worse - the first time we visited here, the convenience store closest to the motel closed at 9. And there was NO place open later than that!

Re: Chrome circle

It does look like a ferris wheel. I suspect it's someone's cute idea for food photo shoot. Not practical for actually serving food.

Steven - you didn't ask, but those small hamburgers are called sliders.

Re: Foam and cling film

Bob & Trolley -

I so agree with you! I hate buying stuff on Styrofoam - it's the only plastic (other than trash bags) that the recyclers won't take. I'm thinking of talking with the manager of the meat department as fresh meat is about the only thing sold on foam trays. There has to be a better way.
