However, you did write:

Quote:
. . . No need to be so defensive, Mr. Setanta . . .


. . . which made it a personal characterization. I'd like you to know as well that you do not either occupy my thoughts so much as you must seem to think you do.

Eh Beth--yeas PUMPKIN and SEAFOOD chowder, as served up in the Micmac restaurant near St Stevens. It has a hearty "fudgy" consistency with a seafood taste and CHUNKS.

Your posts have chronically shown hairtrigger defensiveness,
as to EVERYONE, not just me.
I deem u to be a very defensive person. I accept u that way. U gotta be u.
Someone once said that u used to be charming and ingratiating, in earlier times.
On seldom occasions, when u r not venting anger, a slight amount
of charm leaks out a little; enuf with the personal characterizations,
except to observe that there is no evidence that u r an obsessive person.

That concept never entered my mind,
that u have me in your thoughts, until u just raised that subject.

@farmerman,
If we can call pumpkin squash, and if fish can be called seafood, I'll try some of that pumpkin and seafood chowder.

It does seem that it would be a very old, traditional American combo.

I have not really had much to say about chowder
on this thread.

I've never seen any need to ingratiate myself to strangers about whom i only know that they post online. You speak of defensiveness and anger, and yet you have absolutely no way of knowing if i am angry, or if i am actually being defensive. You can't see me, i'm not speaking to you so there are no clues of facial expression, intonation, body language--you have no basis upon which to assume that i'm being defensive or am angry, none whatsoever.

OK.
I 'll take your word for it.
I accept your assertions.
I have not suggested that u do anything differently.

EH BETH-On Saturday ,we had lunch at a restaurant down in a town called KEnnett Square Pa. Its a neat little town in the middle of mushroom country.
We had a nice bowl of a pumpkin mushroom chowder that had a hint of curry and small chunks of veal and some assorted veggies, including corn. It was a meal in itself. They then had a lunch portion of veal chop served with a rice dish and pepper grass salad.
We did not have to eat supper, it was so satisfying.

The point is that the stew was presented as a dish that was inspired by a "Delaware Indian Chowder". I heard that the Leni's would mix squirrel and deer meat in their versions and cook them in rock "potholes" by placing really hot rocks in the stew as it sat in the pothole. I dont think they had curry but they did use sassafras as a thickener and flavoring.

Im familiar with a stew called Brunswick Stew which contains all kinds of game meats but I was sure that this varietal was inspired by HillWilliams

@farmerman,
I just lost a whole day's supply of saliva reading the decription of that meal, farmer.

@farmerman,
That sounded fantastic, especially the chowder.

Love those squash/pumpkin soups/chowders. I've got a butternut squash ready to go today - I think I'll sort of vaguely follow your description, though with lamb instead of veal, since that's what's ready in the fridge. I'd been considering some kind of lamb stew - now it'll be part of a squash chowder.

How about practical jokes....... This one is Canadian but good for laughs anyway. Granny Palin thinks she is talking to the president of France.

@OmSigDAVID,
Sorry OmSigD about your love & devotion to firearms; BUT did you know that Toronto is a city of over 70,000 people yet in the past couple years has had a total of 3 deaths involving firearms. People there live like Americans USED TO. They don't have to worry about keeping their doors locked all the time. Like we USED TO. And did you know that WE have had about 146,000 deaths in ONE YEAR involving the use of firearms in the good old US of A? Something isn't right here, my man. Try to connect... the...dots.....why don't you.

I don 't have much information about Toronto;
I think its in Canadia.

However the case may be,
assuming all that to be true, for the sake of argument,
did u have a point about something ?

Was it your intention to imply that we shoud amend
the US Constitution to grant government authority
to interfere in citizens' possession of defensive guns ?


What u said about " ... don't have to worry ... "; I don t worry either.
I used to worry when I was 8,
before I armed myself with a .38 revolver, but since then,
I have lived between tranquility and serenity.

Anyway, if u had a point, what is it ?

@babsatamelia,
Babs, where is this Toronto you reference?

The Toronto I live in, in Canada, has a population of over 3,00,000 and significantly more than 3 deaths involving firearms over the past couple of years.
