Never tried--and don't ever plan to--Lamprey meat. Sounds awful. Glad you're feeling better, Spud.

I made pizza dough out of coconut flour the other day. Unusual, but quite good.

I'm still not over the illness, but my body is winning over the pathogens.  I felt much better yesterday, and the same today.

This morning I watched "Oregon Field Guide" on TV, and they had a piece about Lampreys on the Willamette falls.  The native tribe has been harvesting them for food for thousands of years, but the Lampreys are in decline.  Scientists are trying to figure-out why.

The reason I mentioned it here, is that they said Lampreys have a strong fish flavor, stronger than anything else, so they are an acquired taste.

I think I would like them because I usually like strong flavors, and especially at my age where my taster is declining in sensitivity.

I will definitely try some if I ever get the chance.

I'll have a slice of that pi.  To the 5th place please.

Happy pi day (3/14/15), everyone!

(More pi, pies, and pi pirate pie-rats here)

Perhaps I should have turned-back before reaching the store, so as to not pass-on any pathogens I have to others, but I did use hand wipes, and kept my sneezing and coughing under control.

Thank Joan.  I thought I felt like going shopping today, but was wrong.  Running nose and eyes got worse as I drove and shopped, but I plowed through, and bought what I wanted.  

Patricia, the cheapest brand of butter (Darigold), at WinCo, my favorite grocery store, is $2.58/lb.

Big Ag is what sucks up most of what water is left out here.

I wonder how the almond crop is doing in California? I know the drought has hurt them. The reason I ask is, I'm a huge fan of almonds. I eat them raw, roasted, buy almond "peanut" butter, and almond milk, among others. I would use almond flour, but it's just too darn expensive. But then again, so are all almond products.

Spud, I hope you are sprouting new wings and feeling great from tip to toe.

Thanks Patricia.
