   Hikergal posted on Main Page The Lobby  My SIL POSTED THIS today and I understand his frustration. He is aboard the USS G.Washingtonhelping in the Philippines.

Everybody hates the U.S.A. but out here in response to another countries need, the U.S. has numerous Naval ships as I look to my left and my right answering the call of people in need, we are supplying our own food and water as the sailors on board the ship willingly are going without either as a testimony to their sacrifice, but I don't see not one other countries direct support from out here nor real acknowledgement for active duty and veterans of the Armed Forces. And why is the U.S. the enemy again???? What's wrong with the world. And they ask us why we do it....it's to show other who won't how WE WILL!

   Hollyhock  Hiker, your SIL's post pretty much sums up what is going on. As he said "What is wrong with the world and why is the U.S. the enemy?" It seems like the world is divided into givers and takers. It saddens me to know that our honorable men and women are giving up food and water to help in this tragedy. Yes, other countries should step up and help too. I think about the innocent babies and children in the Philippines. They were needy before this happened.

To your SIL - God bless you and keep you safe. Thank you for volunteering to serve this country.

Daughter #3 who hasn't spoken to me or anything in over 4 years. At the urging of her siblings she sent me an email to open up contact !!! It is a small start but I'll take anything right now.It took me 2 days to figure out what to say without blowing it : )

Brussels sprouts braised or steamed are on my mind.my in box had a letter from the local farmers market started of with this ...
" Old ladies, experienced farmers, and seed catalogs all say that certain varieties of in the Brassica family (Kale, Collards, Brussels Sprouts and Cabbage to name a few ) are "sweeter after the frost".
In my minds eye I see my mother in Canajoharie growing things every where.The spot that embarrassed me most as a teen ager was the verge,the space between the road and sidewalk and she grows veggies amongst her flowers. It's fall and I just want to mow it down to hide it ,disappear it, not stand out, be normal.Mom says we wait til after the 1st hard frost.... we do .Finally I can remove them.
THEN SHE WORK HER MIRACLE! She takes those lowly,hated ugly balls of embarrassment throws them in a banged up ancient black cast iron skillet with bacon drippings and love and out come pure heaven in my mouth.
MISS you Mom

   Hikergal  Gerty they were Brussels sprouts of course : ) my mother grew things in every spare inch of dirt she could find.We lived down the street from the RC Church and our street became a one way on Sunday everyone had to go past our house after mass and in a community of non gardeners my mom's riotous, exuberant,brash gardens of flowers and veggies stuck out. Being a teenager I was an idiot Mom.Mom gardened joyously until she died with no ground left unturned or wasted in grass.

   Linder  Loved the story. Fixed Brussels sprouts for the first time recently....steamed a short time and then browned in butter. Delicious. Will be trying to raise some next summer. The verge, as used in the story is a new term and I'll be using it.
