The goal is to start a thread that just never dies. You post something directly related to the prior post. It must have continuity. We will have to feed and nurture this, but I believe this crew is up to it.

I'll start by offering a seed of Germination: Madagascar

And remember what the monkey from the tote bag made its way into the House of Blues? :)

The House of Blues can produce some ferocious fumes when crowded with a bunch of monkeys carrying Cyburbia tote bags stuffed with dung. :p

Madagascar
A couple of years ago, I was Googling that very topic, out of sheer curiosity to broaden my geographic horizons.

Apaprently, Madagascar is a very popular tourist destination among the French, who are inclined to flock to out-of-the-way developing nations for holiday. The big destination there is Nosy Be, which is supposedly one of the most beautiful beaches in Africa. (Madagascar technically isn't in Africa, but still ...)

Interesting ethnic makeup and language, too. Many of the island's original settlers have Polynesian origins, and the Malagasy language is more closely related to Pacific languages than those heard in Africa. French, however, is now the national tongue.

All that from memory, too.

Speaking of French... I would really like some French fries. I'm pretty hungry right now.

Hey, they said it had to relate to the previous post... it didn't say how.

Speaking of Manhattan, I could go for one right now. I think I'll start preparing myself for the Denver debauchery.

Have no fear... debauchery will remain alive and well in Canada (Montreal especially).

As long as there is a Canada there will be beer- and where there is beer.. well, then there's got to be hockey!

(Speaking of hockey- did anyone see Hatcher pound that guy the other night? :) Since he hardly ever fights anymore I enjoyed it tremendously.)

Tremendous is a synonym for stupendous.

I know there's a Marry Theresa set-up somewhere in here - oh, no, wait... that wasn't set-up, she was knocked up. Are we back to debauchery? We always seem to be there. How did we ever get off?

Hammer... back to tools... yeah I agree nerudite Tool was definitely the best concert I went to in 2002. Shihad was pretty good too - has anyone heard of the New Zealand rock band Pacifier? They changed their name from Shihad because it was thought that 'Shihad' was too similar to 'Jihad' for US audiences so they changed it before going on tour last year. Now they are called Pacifier which is the name of one of their best songs.

speaking of pacifiers....

Our son never really took to one. He does, however, like a sippy cup w/ good ol' H^20 and ice at bedtime.

Speaking of kittens, did anyone (other than Mastiff) realize that Oregon is "the beaver state?" Oh yeah, that one will work its way into the quarters Photoshop thread.

from the beaver country

http://www.cws-scf.ec.gc.ca/hww-fap/hww-fap.cfm?ID_species=52&lang=e

Beaver
No other animal has influenced a nation's history to the extent that the beaver Castor canadensis has influenced the history of Canada. When Europeans began to settle in northern North America, beaver pelts were the prize that lured them farther and farther into the wilderness. Champlain pushed westward to extend the beaver trade in 1613. The travels of Radisson and Des Groseilliers in the Lake Superior and James Bay regions during 1659–61 were fur-trading ventures. The Hudson's Bay Company was founded in 1670 chiefly to trade for beaver fur. The Nor'westers, operating out of Montreal after 1783, went to the farthest reaches of Canada in search of beaver. Canadians now celebrate the beaver as a national symbol on stamps, coins, and emblems; in addition, literally hundreds of Canadian lakes, towns, rivers, and hill ranges bear the name of this interesting rodent.

Frank Zappa wrote a song about the dangers of eating yellow snow. Watch out where the eskimos go and don't you eat that yellow snow. And the doggy wee wee has blinded me.

Even though its winter, and cold, I still won't wear a sweater, I'll stick to short sleeve golf shirts for casual Friday.

Kelly,

when you knit mittens are teh thumbs the proper length. I hated the mittens my grandmother knitted for me as a kid as she always made teh thumbs too short.

On a serious note, somewhat like spam, if you are looking for hat or sweater patterns Personal Message me, my mother designs and sells hand knit hats, sweaters and socks as well as the patterns for them.
