Re: Limone, Lake Garda, Italy

DrFumblefinger ·
I used to have a Meyer Lemon tree in my yard when I lived in California. It was a dwarf tree, no more than 1.5 meters tall, but it produced more than 300 lemons each year, more than we could consume. I miss that tree!

In Spain they take the largest, roundest fruits. Cut off the top and scoop out the inside. Fill with Lemon flavour Ice Cream and put the top back on. Wrap in food wrap. Freeze them. Buy them in the store next to the Ice Lollies. No drip Ice Cream !!

I'm enjoying reading these Blogs ! Very educational. Natural history is so interesting. Thanks DrF. Did you know that during the dry season Alligators dig holes in the river bed. When the river swells in the wet season these holes fill with water. And Fish. The Alligator does not harm them. He goes off to find his food in the river. When the river dries out he is left with holes full of Fish who have taken refuge from the receding water. They are the Alligators "Larder" to get him through...

Thanks for the comment, GarryRF. I do love love nature and natural history and often my travels center around seeing these sorts of sights. I did not know that about alligators and the fish. But I can't say I'm surprised. Nature has developed marvelous mechanisms of adaptation that never cease to amaze me. What I am looking forward to, as are others, is your first piece on those great Cuban cars. Not nature, but beauty of a different kind!

It is almost impossible to describe the debilitating heat in this location. We would instantly scurry to any shade possible, however inadequate. I have been on the southern fringe and broiled in hot springs about 30km off the road to Harar. Afars looked through me, knowing I was irrelevant in their world. In years gone by, my testicles would have been their chief interest in me, for decorating their waistband !

Re: January 31, 2017: Ye Olde Chip Truck, Kenora, Ontario

It's great to see real chips and vinegar making a comeback ! I often get folks in the US teasing me over the way we used to say Ye old shop. Just to put the record straight - and I'm sorry to disappoint so many - we never did. When the Guttenberg Printing Press arrived in England from Germany in 1440 there was no Greek letter "THETA" pronounced "th", so the nearest Look-alike letter was a Gothic "Y". So that soon replaced Theta in the printed word. But always pronounced The.
