(And yet…) At any rate, yeah, I know they’re prevalent here… I’d just always assumed it was a quaint German thing, until I found articles that suggested that it’s peculiar (apt phrase) to quaint German-*Americans*. Your mom is more than welcome to her pickle. 😉

Comment on The Christmas Pickle by Liz https://blogs.confusticate.com/karen/2008/12/25/the-christmas-pickle/#comment-94 Fri, 26 Dec 2008 23:09:04 +0000 http://blogs.confusticate.com/karen/2008/12/25/the-christmas-pickle/#comment-94 My mom has a pickle, too. Though the gods only know where she got the idea; she’s prone to reading about customs from all over and deciding she wants to join in.
I’ll also mention that just about every year-round christmas store I know of carries pickles, and most of them sport a decorated tree of nothing but.

RealPlayer doesn’t go for Macs, apparently. 😛 (Gotta love “standards” that aren’t.)

Comment on The Big Read Meme, and Joss Whedon’s Evil Genius! by Mary https://blogs.confusticate.com/karen/2008/07/19/the-big-read-meme-and-joss-whedons-evil-genius/#comment-92 Sun, 20 Jul 2008 12:18:08 +0000 http://blogs.confusticate.com/karen/2008/07/19/the-big-read-meme-and-joss-whedons-evil-genius/#comment-92 Hi, Gris – Here I am, checking your links. You are a librarian! So cool. I’ve discovered that museum people (me!) and librarians (you!) tend to be birds of a feather and I’m finding that in your commentary on you book list. I soooooo agree with you about Dickens and Tolkien. I can’t seem to choke them down, even though they’re supposed to be good for me.

I was trying to pick out a favorite but it was impossible to do. Particularly loved the wreath on the barn picture, I have a thing for barn pictures and the picture through the stained glass.
Thanks,
Barb

These pix were awesome – thanks for sharing them – I’m sending them on to my friends with the intent of making them all extremely jealous.

I just accidentally came across a old picture (July 2003) of yours of the most gorgeous apricot plum torte you made for – I guess – your grandmother.
It was so beautiful, I couldn’t resist asking – might you post the recipe for a fellow cook? I’d happily send you one in return, if you’d like.
Tracy

It’s scary what you find when you Google old friends! 😉 Just thought I’d drop a note to you and let you know that you’re still remembered down my way.

Comment on OW. by Liz https://blogs.confusticate.com/karen/2006/08/16/ow/#comment-85 Wed, 23 Aug 2006 07:14:26 +0000 http://blogs.confusticate.com/karen/2006/08/16/ow/#comment-85 Actually, the special place in Hell is reserved for ALL printers; it’s just that networked ones get the hottest spots. I was trying to check out of the resort Monday night, and the printer jammed while they were printing my bill.
Printers are T3H 3V1L, too.
