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. 😥

Reflections on a Gift of Watermelon Pickle Received from a Friend Called Felicity

During that summer
When unicorns were still possible;
When the purpose of knees*
Was to be skinned;
When shiny horse chestnuts
****(Hollowed out
****Fitted with straws
****Crammed with tobacco
****Stolen from butts
****In family ashtrays)
Were puffed in green lizard silence
While straddling thick branches
Far above and away
From the softening effects
Of civilization;

During that summer—
Which may never have been at all;
But which has become more real
Than the one that was—
Watermelons ruled.

Thick imperial slices*
Melting frigidly on sun-parched tongues
Dribbling from chins;
Leaving the best part,
The black bullet seeds,
To be spit out in rapid fire
Against the wall
Against the wind
Against each other;

And when the ammunition was spent,
There was always another bite:
It was a summer of limitless bites,
Of hungers quickly felt*
And quickly forgotten
With the next careless gorging.

The bites are fewer now.
Each one is savored lingeringly,
Swallowed reluctantly.

But in a jar put up by Felicity,
The summer which maybe never was
Has been captured and preserved.
And when we unscrew the lid
And slice off a piece
And let it linger on our tongue:
Unicorns become possible again.

John Tobias

I think they're used to stretch or enhance mashed potatoes. Depends on your perception of the potatoe and / or the J-artichoke...

And not just for holding! How about eating it? Check out this website, interesting
All the Food That's Fit to 3D Print, From Chocolates to Pizza - Businessweek

Actually, NASA & the military is working on a 3-D food printing process for all of the meals....

In Germany, they are using the 3-D food printer in their nursing homes..
