TOOKS did it!!! 25,000!!! Celebration Thread!!

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Hmmmmm, now why hasn't some enterprising young eco-warrior come up with a way to trap methane gas from animal and human . . . digestive processes . . . then bottle it and use it to fuel a new generation of cars?

. . . wanders off with a scratch pad, madly scribbling . . . :P :D

I think they have, actually, it just hasn't caught on as a mainstream power source yet. I'm pretty sure I've seen backyard grills powered by a little enclosed composting bin where they collect the gas. Works like a propane tank, but self-refilling.

Yes Ninui..it is awesome...I learned to cook some Greek food just because I loved it so much...and some of the food is so simple, like traditional Greek Salads *(cucumbers, red onions, tomatoes,calmari olives, feta, oil/vinegar). An off the shelf spice you can buy, is Cavendars (fennel, thyme and some other seasons)...which blends a lot of the traditional spices the Greeks use. I use it on a lot of non Greek things such as scrambled eggs or a pot roast.

Good lord, I think I know what i'm having for dinner :D

OPA!!! Are we talking Greek now? I am in. I lived in Athens for just short of a year....well, it has been a long time ago now, but I remember every site, sound, smell and taste of it. My favorite Greek food to cook is Avgolomono Soup.....sort of a chicken rice and lemon soup...yum and Greek cabbage rolls....similar to our sort of cabbage rolls but no tomato sauce on them....but the lemony eggy stock sauce...so very good. And I am a huge fan of an American Greek invention...the flaming cheese, saganaki. But I love it all. In Greece the food has no preservatives everything has so much more taste to it....hard to describe....but so so so good.

OPA!!! I asked my Greek friend why I felt so different in Athens....I loved the food, the music, the dancing...the attitudes of the Greeks...he told me, "it is in the air we breathe".

Oh....and just to stay on topic....Tooks...a challenge, you must dance the traditional dance of Greece for us. :D :D :D in your best Hawaiian shirt!!

Sorry, don't drink coffee. Never have.

I USED to get my caffeine fix from Coke. And yes, I would drink it any time of the day.....several times a day.....

I used to joke that if I were ever in an accident, they could just give me an IV with a 2 liter bottle of Coke, and forget the blood transfusion.

Me. I drink coffee. However, it is now almost 7:30 pm, so I'm not brewing any. Stop back in 12 hours. ;)

I used to drink diet coke, but have lost my taste for really sweet drinks. I guess that's a good thing??? :D

I also drank Coke when out and about also at home. Drank so much I can't any longer. Still have one at a restaurant but no longer at home.
Caffine comes from coffee only. Love my drive through. Prefer iced but will do a blended every so often. Hot ocassionaly. Brewed in kitchen every morning !!
