    Good band. I liked the tune.

    Q: What's a really teensy tiny duck say?
    A: Quark! Quark! Quark! :laff:

    Also known as pork & beans and wieners. Frankfurters. Hot Dogs. Not like German sausage at all. We'd probably call those Brats (bratwurst)

    I feel like I've stumbled into the funny house in here today.

    Good afternoon folks. Smoking some '06 Telegraph Hill in a Northern Briars banker.

    Another beautiful day here. 70˚F (21˚C) in the shade, 29% RH, winds SW at 17 mph, gusting to 25. Not bad at all.

    If you'll pick me up at the airport and drive me out to Banff, I'll be on my way, OC. But I refuse to do it myself, because the only decent way to get there is through Calgary, and I ain't driving through Calgary, no sir. One time driving in that city was one too many.

    I'm not jumping to conclusions just yet, as there are still lows in the low 40's and probably 30's coming up. Personally, I like winter, so I hope Spring will hold off just a little while longer, but knowing Alabama, I won't have that luck. Still, this place gets awfully beautiful around April, so I should have some great opportunities to take and post photos then.

    Good afternoon all. Been running errands all morning and I can now say without reservation that Salem Oregon has the worst drivers in...well, everywhere with the possible exception of Italy. :doh:
    Get home and settle in for an afternoon of sanity and find out Wicker Man has a tobacco shop that stocks bananas! :eek:
    I did enjoy the travel log photos there WM and would love to visit those places someday, but I'm afraid I must wait until you folks learn to drive on the proper side of the road.

    While that transition takes place, I will be smoking some McClelland #5125 in a pipe stamped simply "BRASSO" over Italy.

    Van Rossems Aromatic Cavendish Troost (Thanks mrpipster), in the YSCF. First impression of this blend...salty sweet woody richness. Good smoke. Just finishing this bowl up.

    this is a little confusing...Wiener Würstchen is a sausage made from calf and it's Austrian, the german sausages are Frankfurter Würstchen made from calf and pork and it's a cooked sausage used for Hot Dogs, Nürnberger Rostbratwürstchen are pork and I guess what you're eating right there - but what is a german sausage? Are you talking about a bavarian Weißwurst?

    What an interesting difference amongst countries. In the US, Hot Dogs (also known as Frankfurters, Franks, Wieners and sometimes, but not commercially, Tube Steaks) used to be made of beef. (I used Oscar Meyer Classic Beef Franks in my meal.) But not that many years ago, when they began trying to convince us that red meat is bad for us, we started getting hot dogs made of turkey, pork and chicken. Lord, there's probably even soy 'furters for sale somewhere! I've never seen white wurst - what do they put in there to make them so white? And what's the translation for "wurst" anyway? The "chen" suffix means "little," right? And is Wiener a city in Austria? (I know Frankfurt is just down the road from you, so I'm just guessing that Wiener and Nurnberg are cities as well.)

    Yeesh, take a couple days to play outside and get over a dozen pages behind! Bleh. So I finally finished up that meer of Sam's Flake from Thursday evening, then had a MM 5th Ave Dip full of H&H CBK while hubby burned a cigar as we watched the mostly-dead tree trunk burn this afternoon. Hubby took the chainsaw to the smaller tree I had cut down, and piled up the sections to season as that one wasn't hollowed out in the center.
