And, as for those heavy-footed thieves .....! Rolling Eyes Jeeze, they should take classes! How embarrassing!Rolling Eyes


Thieves broke into my house and took almost everything. They entered by kicking in the front door with a 1" deadbolt. The force must have been hard, because we found pieces of the lock and the door latch 30' from the point of impact. The door had a huge muddy bootprint in the middle. For investigational purposes, the police took the whole door, solid core mahogany weighing nearly 100 lbs. Nothing was ever recovered.

Guess these guys were a little higher on the IQ scale than the guys in the balaclavas.

ONLY "quite tasty"! I wonder what all the fuss is about, then?

But what sort of cheese lasts that long, cav? Confused


The average american cheese slice has a landfill life of about 20 years before it completely disintegrates. For that matter, so does a cheap hotdog composed of pork, chicken and beef scraps. Does that answer your question?

Anyway, if the miraculous cheese sandwich was hermetically sealed, that is to say, sealed to prevent invasion of air, moisture and mold spore, it would indeed keep almost indefinitely.

msolga, the fuss is that they are rare, and cannot be cultivated. They are also an acquired taste....both black and white truffles have a fungal quality to them, but the white ones, about 3 times the price of black, are the most pungent.

<gulp> I started looking at the Humane Society site, cav, but got as far as the pets for adoption section. <gulp> Those photographs of animals waiting for owners just break my heart. Poor little creatures. It's hard to believe people can be so cruel & thoughtless. Sad


They do good work, completely on donations, no government funding. I suppose that's why I was so disgusted by the story I found.


I used to volunteer at the local animal shelter. Some of them have been abused and all they really need is a little love and attention to bring out the best in them. It is heartbreaking to see beautiful, intelligent, loving animals put down just because no one wants to give them a home.

All of my pets have come from the shelter, including Angel, an English Lurcher Greyhound. She was abused and afraid of everything. Now, four years later, she is my best friend.

combining a couple of these tantalizing stories brings me to the African
"Legend of the Amazonian Truffle"

It seems that in the dead of the African winter (a difficult place to find, at best!), the hypopotamuses (or should that be Hypopotomie?), migrate in search of the giant African truffles dubbed "Amazon" (short for 'amazing' in Swahili).
These massive 'truffle hounds have not been seen at night (only because it is too dark) snuffling through the underbrush, and digging precipitously with their sharp ......er, hooves, in search of the esoteric, and rare, delight!

Yes, I know they're rare, cav, but at that price you'd expect something deliriously, exotically, out-of-this-world FANTASTIC! ... & beyond gastronomic belief! Laughing

Whoops!

Workers renovating the Dutch parliament drilled a hole through a wall into a 17th-century painting by Ludolf de Jongh on the other side. The work was valued at $A440,000.

When Tarzan used to sit on his elephant and shout "Umgowa", he was actually using the Swahili word for "go".
