    Why Thomas and I have been MIA

    ((( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HaggisHaggis is a savoury pudding containing sheep's pluck (heart, liver and lungs); minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, traditionally ))) Jesus... Don't you people eat anything from the MISCLE part of the critter? PJL_____________________________________________________________

    Why Thomas and I have been MIA

    Thomas: As much as I enjoy the British male voices, I always found them to be a bit ………mmmm…… “Presumptuous.” Now female’s speaking Brit…. It’s like listening to a sunrise. Your invited anyhow Thomas as long as you do the cooking. BUT NO! Black Pudding! PJL______________________________________________________________

    Yes Dan I saw that. Guess I was just thinking some Brit Chat would have worn off on Elise. <grin>
  4. So their 2 weeks into it as of 05/19 I understand the producers want all the drama they can milk out of each participant. And we only see a small part of their daily lives. But IMHO’s so far: I was sorry to see Mary Kate go. When she was a hotshot firefighter didn’t they teach her to use an ax? And basic first aid? ELEVATE! DIRECT PRESSURE! Tracy was due to leave but thought she would last a bit longer and her excuse was a bit lame. Desmond was…. Well… A wise man once said “Why go out seeking real life, when I can get it all at home in color pictures?” Randy: He burned a TON of calories building a shelter as big as a strip mall. If he were a real pilgrim I could see the need. But for only 2 or 3 months? It’s twice the size needed. Winter’s coming. More house = more heat needed. I bet he fills in that open end when the rain/wind hits. But it does look sturdy. He caught himself a mouse and yet he’s the only one with a bow/arrows. I guess they aren’t allowed to hunt birds. Mike: He’s very handy making drying racks and a stove and the tilt-o-bottle. Quite clever. Of course that’s assuming they stay put when the wind picks up and blows his Taj Mahal into central Canada. Justin: WRF ? over ! He has a “muscle beach” ? He can’t get a workout hauling firewood, building traps and improving his plight in general? And that swing might just send him home when he falls and breaks an ankle. His shelter did look well-built and cozy and the pee tube idea is GREAT! The duck he floated would have made great fish / crab / bird bait. Nicole: Not sure how long those ferns will last as siding. Great catch in her net. Wonder if she dried / smoked any of it? She’s got a great attitude about those bears. Hope it keeps up when they cross the river to investigate HER! David: 2 weeks in and he just now caught a fish. He’s an overactive philosopher which may be his downfall. He said he “only had a couple Limpet’s and lots of seaweed.” I guess the Red Tide is over? It’s hard to find better eating than mussels, clams, limpets etc. His shelter would be wonderful (on an island in Southern Polynyas but not Vancouver) Jose: Walking out in the bay to check his net sent chills through me. I have SCUBA’d those waters and even with a wet-suit the shrinkage factor is a solid 10. Larry just got the proverbial short end of the stick. I can’t help but think there is some reason the producers picked that spot. Maybe he hasn’t found it yet. Overall I’m surprised there are no crab / fish / bird traps yet. I mean what else is there to do at night but tend the fire and listen to the rain. Making stuff would be half the fun. Cordage – Kitchen tools – Musical instruments – Furniture – Fire place – Chinking – traps - Artwork etc. etc. etc. Respectively submitted, PJL __________________________________________________________________

    I'M GONA TEAR YOU UP ! UNLESS You give me a good scratching. Miss Piggy and Mom
  8. LOL... The answers are "Yes" and No" One is the prize, the rest are . . well . . . not really selling them. Think I'll keep them for another 10 years and try one again. I have 4 (plus the prize) so if I try one every ten years I'll be 106 when they run out. PJL _______________________________________________________________
  9. When I saw my first Puma I reached out patted it's head and scratched it behind its ear. (guess I should mention it had a collar around its neck that was attached to the bed of a pickup.) Your right Dan. Magnificent is the only proper word. The second and third I saw were also in the back of a truck. But they both had been dinning on a local cattle heard in NW Montana. So they were given acute lead poisoning by the rancher. While I understood the need to protect the cows I remembered my first experience and was quite sad. But enough of all that… Where are your lists guys? What would you bring? PJL ___________________________________________________________
  10. I posted this in a different thread. Then saw it really belonged here ******************* Digging around in the garage attic I found a mini-BOB. I don’t remember assembling it and it was quite basic. Small first-aid, fire starters, fishing kit, space blankets, poncho, multi-tool, AND Energy bars, gum, and one soup package. There was no details on the soup except what I had written. “Mushroom 4/94” <blink. blink. blink.> No dates on the gum but the best-by dates on the energy bars were from 01/94 to 04/95 ! Now I ask. Could you, as a good peppers, not want to at least TRY food that was 22 yeas old? The power bars were soft and ply able. I chose “Wild Berry.” Now I’m not a big fan of power bars in general and it was almost bed time. Extra energy was not a priority at the time. I never intended eat the whole thing. It was chewy and had good flavor. If I were stuck in a snow cave it would be classed as 5 star. These were made by “PowerFood, Inc.” of Berkley, CA. (now Premier Nutrition Corporation) The soup mixed up nice and thick with about a cup of boiling water. Bits of mushrooms floated up. I would call it tasty and after adding my drug of choice (salt) it was even better. The age thing kept creeping back into my mind and I caught myself trying to find something odd or wrong with it. For this test I finished the whole thing with a slice of fresh baked bread. I slept well with no side effects. The gum I haven’t tried as I don’t have as many teeth as I did 22 year ago. <grin> And the Maverick cigarettes were as I remember them <hack> All in all a fun experience and experiment. I have 5 bars left and am offering them for sale as “antiques”
  11. There has been a change. The winner here gets a very special Power Bar. Choose from : Wild Berry, Maple Nut, Chocolate, or Apple Cinnamon. PJL_____<evil grin>_______

    What do you store in bulk.
