Hmmm .... I'd love to try the Glenmorangie Cellar 13 ... have any pals in England that would ship us a bottle?
I'm afraid not. They keep saying we need to come there.

A diet coke this afternoon. :thumbdown:

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'.

You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows...

Good morning, everyone. Ground fog so thick I can't even see 200 meters! Wonderful! That means it's cooler outside and the Rainy season really is over! It's a wonderful Friday gift. I'm celebrating with a mug of my new "English Breakfast" tea and a veggie omelet and a fermented sour pork sausage from the Food Lady. Strange tastes but delicious. Then it's lace up my shoes and another 10km walk, two hours of reading, two hours of music practice (John Barleycorn is NOT working....) and the meeting with friends for another jam session. Or... perhaps it's a 'hootenanny.' Haven't used that word in public since the mid-60's! LOL!

We have an annual music show broadcast every New Year's Eve called Jools Holland's Hootenanny. It's an alternative "welcome in the New Year" show to the usual talking heads and fireworks programmes, and always has great acts on it. My only disappointment with it was one year realising it was pre-recorded, which makes a bit of a nonsense of the New Year countdown. I'd still rather watch the NY in with this programme rather than the alternatives, though.

Btw, Jools was the piano player for the band Squeeze, if anyone outside the UK remembers them?

Rooibos in my cup.

Busy day. Just having my last mug of tea. Late in the day, but it's the weekend so I can get a little crazy!

The keeper did a hunting go
Under his cloak he carried a bow
All for a shoot, a merry little doe
Among the leaves so green, oh

Jacky boy
(Master)
Sing me well
(Very well)

Hey, down, ho, down, very, very down
Among the leaves so green, oh

To my head on down, to my whole on down
Hey, down, ho, down, very, very down
Among the leaves so green, oh

The first, oh, she did cross the plain
The keeper fetched her back again
Where she's now she may remain
Among the leaves so green, oh

Good morning, everyone. Today is the second Saturday in October, which means 'Opening Day' of Bow season in Vermont. Quiet in the woods, (no guns allowed for hunting now,) and always a dusting of snow on the ground making tracking a bit easier. It's the time to harvest the summer-fed deer for a winter of good eating... if you're lucky. This year, because the deer herd has grown so healthy due to proper game management, each hunter can take one buck and one doe. God willing, enough will be taken to keep the herd size in check so as not to over-tax the available food supply. If that happens, there will be massive winter die-off due to starvation and illness. It's a sad, bad feeling to be walking through the woods in the early spring, and finding hundreds of dead deer, knowing that they starved to death, or died of illness spread through a weakened herd. I'll get off my soap box now...

Time for a mug of Ahmad's "English Breakfast" tea. Where I back in New England, this morning's breakfast would have been at 4am with a group of friends, drinking tea and coffee, tucking into pancakes, sausage, bacon, home-fries, biscuits, etc., and filling thermoses to carry into the woods. Tradition going back many, many years...

I am thinking of some nice deer jerky after reading your reminiscences.

Evening cup of coffee and a couple of chocolate cookies.

Mid-afternoon mug of East India Company's "Assam" tea, as we recover from today's walk!

I remember stringing lines across the ceiling over the wood stove to hold the strips of drying jerky. When the humidity in the house is -20%, jerky dries quickly! We used to make three different flavors; hickory-smoked, terriyaki, and pepper. Good stuff! Not as good as the venison roasts or the hunter sausage, but nice for snacking on! These days the only time I get to eat deer is when we go to Europe.

Terriyaki jerky is my favorite.

Still trying to wake up with my morning coffee.

I never quite got jerky. OTOH, muchaka, the Mexican dried meet, is simply wonderful. But you cook it before eating.

Fresh squeezed orange juice. And a mug of Peet's Anniversary Breakfast Blend.

muchaka. I had to look that up, and it is dried shredded beef. I don't know if I would know if it was cooked and served or cooked, dried, and then cooked again for a meal. I've never tried it at the dried stage to be like jerky.

It is seasoned (and cured), then hung to dry. And then cooked so that the meat basically falls apart. The result is really, really good.

More of the Peet's Anniversary Breakfast Blend.
