Some old Photos for your enjoyment


Northern NY Dangerous extremist...???
The community my folks were in in Baja was offered a muy grande' lobster . They couldn't get the whole thing in the normal 3-5 lobster pot so they cooked the front half then the tail . 17# tail on a Pacific spiney .
We used to hunt spiny lobster in scuba gear at night in Okinawa and then cook them in a trash can over a driftwood fore on the beach while listening to "Dick Bartleys Solid Gold Saturday Night" on Armed Forces Radio. Man, those were the days! Dick is still on the radio. I should send him a letter thanking him for the memories!

I just love Haggis! It is not sold in the the US anymore! Then again I'm finding it impossible to buy Red Keiska ( Polish Blood Sausage) anymore also. Can't Buy Calves Brains ( great for breakfast with eggs!)
All of the old folks are are dying off and the kids do not want to keep the traditions!
Man, the next thing they will ban is the Inuit "Stink Head"! Only the elders eat it!
I'm a traditionalist and hate to see the old ways & flavors fade away!

Haggis needs a sweet fat and salt to be edible. The Cajuns figured that out and not having barley or sheep stomach casing they used rice and pig casings and made......boudin!

Not a whole lot of things are better than camping on a beach with friends and eating Crab, or Lobster, or Abalone that you caught with your own hands! Shooting fish is pretty fun too!

Another Gem from!

I grew up in Appalachia, and all that was still being used behind the mule in 1952. My Dad got his first tractor, a used pre-war Fordson, made in England with a Model T engine, that year. I went on a church work project for two weeks in Tennessee in 1964. Men were cutting rye with hand sickles for $.75 a day, cash money, and lunch.
