My Mom told me not to eat mulberries, they had "mites"...we ate them anyhow and they were good...I'd eat some now if I had them. If the "mites" did any harm, it hasn't shown up in over 65 years. If I had known about fermentation back them I bet we would have eaten even more.

I had an uncle with a large mulberry tree.
The fruit never lasted long enough to ferment.
If they had enough colour to stain a boy's fingers and face (and shirts!) they were fair game.
(Occasionally we would pick enough for mum to use in desserts)

Surely you noticed the Kärcher naming scheme



The Hocir seem to have extended their influence.

Jean: does that guy make house calls? I'm always so nervous about cleaning the sensors and it would be great to have it done by a pro.

He's not cleaning the sensor, he's trying to flush out the squirrels.

Aha! So that dark blotch appearing at the same place in so many of my images is actually a peanut.

That's Fred from his FB page.

Yes, another blatant steal ... but he may be trying to complete with Eric H ... thus the "showing off" of his skills.

W ... PM me if you want his contact info.

PM me if you want Otis' contact info. He likes mostly girls, and those that talk filthy are the ones he likes the most. Secondary, he likes discussions about exotic nuts and cold beer...he isn't particular about the beer as long as it is cold and plenty stout.

My Tess does, but then, she's just about perfect.
