  1. Summit Hill and Tamaqua! Coal Crackers! (But Cracker meant breaking coal, not the modern reference). My Mom had a piece of coal broken off into the palm of her hand for all of her life. Grandpap started as a breaker boy at the age of 9. And now we're scattered all over the country...
  2. Well, they would probably sing to you "Knocking on Heaven's Door".
  3. I had to look this up. I'm glad I did, eh? Battle of Vimy Ridge - Wikipedia
  4. No, this proves that the squire of the high pot and noose IS GREATER THAN the sum of the squires of the other two sides. Sorry, that's just the way math nerds...
  5. Funny cartoon, but one of our friend's kids is making BIG bucks designing games! Nice kid (well, now he's a daddy), so I'm tickled that he's making a good living while playing.
  6. For us Yanks: Pavlova is a meringue-based dessert. Originating in either Australia or New Zealand in the early 20th century, it was named after the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova. Taking the form of a cake-like circular block of baked meringue, pavlova has a crisp crust and soft, light inside. Wikipedia Origins: Australia, New Zealand Looks quite tasty to me! But where was it created? Inquiring minds want to know!
  7. Well, Dear Old Mum didn't TELL me how to cook them, so I was introduced to the learning curve. I didn't learn it, just that that it existed. The second pair of eggs were almost hard-boiled, but better than the first pair, so I made a kind of egg salad. The bacon came out crispy and not burned, so I was pleased. And my tea is Twinings English Breakfast. If it was good enough for the Queen, God Rest Her Royal Majesty's Soul, then it's good enough for me! A comment about your breakfast egg photo: Those yolks are so yellow, they look like eggs from a friend of ours that keeps chickens and feeds them healthy stuff. So much tastier than grocery store eggs. Now I'm hungry again!
  8. When we travelled in Germany with our AF son, the guest houses would always offer soft-boiled eggs for breakfast, along with tubes of pate of different types, and many other tasty items. I never saw anyone eat these eggs, except my son, so I've never seen this method, but it sure looks good to me! I would add salt and pepper, but that's just me. And I want one NOW! Reviving a 65-year-old memory, Mom would make me a soft-boiled egg, and add it to a bowl of torn-up white bread, to absorb the yolk. And a cup of tea with milk and sugar. That's tomorrow's breakfast, for sure!
  9. You're gonna need a bigger boat...
  10. I bet any number of us could come up with jokes or comments that would get us banned from the internet forever! But I bet we would laugh!
  11. I still have the one I made in '63 for Mom. It wasn't pretty. Some of the kids did great jobs. Some were like mine...
  12. Your Mama wasn't raisin you right! (Just going for the play on words. I've met you, and I know you're a stand-up guy, despite shooting cap-and-ball pistols in competition!) Did a sibling or you not like raisins, and so she left them out? Moms will modify recipes to please their young'uns. My Mom always put raisins in mine.
  13. About the same as Bread Pudding up here. Old fashioned, but delicious! I'll show these to my wife. She knows her way around the kitchen!
