Her former owner apparently cursed a lot and she knows how to say things at the most in opportune time.
Thanks for the welcome and I sure hope we cross paths sometime in the future to see each other and our pals. I had a rescue, Nunzio, for around 8 years, a real basket case at first but he completely turned around and was such a great cuddler/buddy. He wound up crashing on the floor (wings were so chopped up they could never grow back in to slow his falls) and busted his insides up and you know birds, they hide it till it was too late and he passed on from internal injuries (I had a necropsy done). Boko picked up a lot of good whistling lessons from Nunzio and she still goes to town sometimes whistling.

If your Congo and mine got together, geez, they'd never stop yacking

Card catalogs, Dewey Decimal system, 35mm film, view masters, and headlight dimmers on the floor, all gone now mostly, from our everyday existence. The question what will the new technology be? is hand in hand with, what will we soon forget we once had?

Persimmons don't taste like anything I can think of to compare them to. Sweet, and thick mushiness, reminiscent of apricot texture but not flavor. Not like a peach, but if the peach had no tartness, and only sweet, that might approach the flavor. I thought I was the only one who had never tasted one before.

My grandaddy came to Arkansas from Georgia... He brought all kinds of exotics eith him, that i thought were everyday items.. Persimmon trees were one, they are really sour if you puck them early... Also until i was grown, i thought an artichoke was like a potato. He grew jerusalem artichokes... And muscadines and scuppernongs, and of course peanuts.....

I think Star Trek, which debuted in 1966, has gotten some things right We don't tap our communicator badges, we tap our Bluetooth devices to make them work and electronic tablets are making paper and books obsolete. I'd LOVE to have transporters that work like theirs, but my RV is the only transporter I'll ever see. Now holodeck technology, that I could see, but only visual images, not things that are computer generated that feel real.



What ever it is, I'm looking forward to it. But then, I've always been a science geek. I bet Earlene might have some ideas from her time working at NASA. If she can talk about them. I ran into a woman today who said she worked at NASA testing some of the systems that the space program was developing, but she couldn't talk about them. I'm not 100% sure I believe her, but I'm sure NASA has plenty of secrets.

Don't forget 3-D printing, Barb! Computer generated images that you can pick up and hold. 😃

Grapes! Do I get any points for the answer? In IL we have fox grapes instead.

On edit: I was playing ketchup and didn't realize the answer was already out there! No points then?

Jerusalem artichokes make the bestest, crispest pickles I've ever eaten. My VA landlady made them, and I've lost the recipe she gave me. 😥
