Hello all!

we are supposed to be approaching our monsoon season here in the desert which means flood rains, dust storms and humidity. So far, in my area, we have only had one area be affected. Guess I need to go out and give my cactus plants their once a month watering.

all goes well here. Just been very busy or I have been flat on my back. Please do not take the latter as whining, but the reason I cannot get on here every day as I would like.

My doggies are doing well.

I am hoping to go to Flagstaff for the 1745 Jacobite re-enactment event at the Flagstaff Highland games in a few weeks. The event is July 18-20th. Hope to see the Wicked Tinkers perform most of all! And most of all I hope to see many of you who can make it to the event. I will will be at the 1745 Jacobite re-enactment camp, which every organization places us as far as possible due to our black powder demonstrations and safety.

More soon!

I posted this under weather but my neighbor gave me three Starts from a pretty big barrel cactus. They are vicious little things. His were in bloom (30 of them). I hope I can grow these. I need to find my tweezers as I am sure my dog will check them out!

Slàinte,

Just a quick note to say hello and hope everyone is doing well.

I wrote something yesterday and when I hit the add reply my computer shut itself off. Oh well that is technology.

Gwyn. I was in the mountains and I didn't feel any movement. I guess because it was just a little shake.

Guys I think eating bugs is against my religion unless I am starving. Yuk!!! An no way would I ruin good chocolate just to try the crunchy little critters. Give me a big steak anytime.

Not much is going on right now. My son has left to go to college and we have already converted the room.

I am going to have family and friends over for the 4th for a cook out and then to watch the fireworks.

Well take care

Typically the bitterness is from what the insects are eating. Yes, thats why many people remove the wings and legs as they can have a slightly bitter taste, I don't mind it. This is why you prefer the newly hatched cicadas, they are the best, the females also are good. Big reason you remove the head and entrails from the grasshoppers also is they are very bitter. I never like the candy coated bugs, it is an attempt to mask the insect plus the crunchiness is not my favorite texture with chocolate and they are definitely not fun to lick in a lollipop. Fried, grilled or roasted are best.
I read in article in I think National Geographics about paleolithic peoples in the Americas ate insects in very large amounts as a ready and easy source of protien, later the neolithic peoples would supplement their gathering and farming with insects. This was determined through their coprolites.

I hope it doesn't come to that but with the projected food shortages, who knows what will happen. I will eat all the rabbits and squirrels in the neighborhood first.

They are on their second or third litter this year already(if that is what you call them)! If I could get potatos, carrots and onions to eat with them I could make one last for 4 meals.

Yes I would be willing to try it. Having lived near the Southern Ute Indian Reservation and worked with Navaho indians, I saw some strange things devoured with gusto! I drew the line at roast prairie dog, Navaho style. Bugs and grubbs weren't TOO bad. Over the world people eat some strange things.

I often wonder who was the first person to look at a lobster and say" Hmmm, that might be tasty, think I'll try it!!" or clams and oysters or any of the rather ugly foodstuffs. The Travel Channel has that program Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, I would try about half of what he does and I thought I was adventurous.

Hey everyone!

Been a few days since I posted here, so I thought I'd pop in and say hello!

I went to my town's fireworks show this past Saturday. It's part of an all day carnival they have the weekend before Independence Day. I took about 40 pictures, and maybe ten of them were keepers. I've posted them on my Flickr page if anyone wants to take a look. I plan on going to some of the neighboring towns' fireworks shows tomorrow, the 4th and 5th.

It's nice that towns stagger their celebrations like that, to give people a chance to go to more than one.

Hello all! 

we are supposed to be approaching our monsoon season here in the desert which means flood rains, dust storms and humidity. So far, in my area, we have only had one area be affected.  Guess I need to go out and give my cactus plants their once a month watering. 


I posted this under weather but my neighbor gave me three Starts from a pretty big barrel cactus. They are vicious little things. His were in bloom (30 of them). I hope I can grow these. I need to find my tweezers as I am sure my dog will check them out!

Slàinte,

Patch, I seriously thought about planting one of those barrel cactus in my back yard, just so I could have quick access to photographing them when they bloom. Thought better of it cause I have three nosy dogs who would probably get their eye poked out cause those thorns are long!

It is interesting what the world over does indeed eat. I love fish and eat lots of it. I studied Native American history for years and was always saddened and mortified when I would read about tribes who ate dogs and horses. But one had to do what they had to do or starve. I say I don't eat much meat and I really don't, but then I am a hypocrite because my in-laws who hunt wild game, I'll be the first in line to eat it. And I do love a good steak every now and then. rolleyes.gif

Our monsoon season is still having a rough time getting started. So it is still pretty hot here. Right now at 6:30 p.m., it is 112...eck!

Anyway, wanted to say hi. Been reading your posts but at times I don't feel like replying. All is well here, just hot and trying to stay out of it.

Take care all!

I can't believe it's July already...sheesh...where's the time going? Thanks for all the congratulations everyone...she is just adorable...can't wait until she's old enough to play with.... still don't have my kilt...getting very frustrated with the shop...they said the tartan factory in Scotland got confused and now they have it on priority order... good thing it wasn't a priority...I ordered it 5 months ago. Our weather has gotten hot and humid here. Supposed to have storms and lots of rain over the next couple of days. Will probably mess up some fireworks displays. The one I was thinking about going to is on Saturday...so maybe I'll be lucky and get to see some. Hope everyone has a wonderful 4th.
