That is pretty and no doubt that it's a dandelion.

I have tried cooking dandelion greens. They were very bitter, so we thought they were nasty. Yes, I parboiled them first.

Luckily, no one sprays them here. It's a municipal bylaw that you can't spray pesticides or herbicides unless you have an infestation and then you need a permit and have to put little signs.

What is it about different forums, (not DC). and how nasty people can be to each other? I belong to several different forums, and I'm appalled at all the sniping that goes on, even between so-called "experts", AKA "moderators", as well as the regular members.

I'm ever so appreciative of DC and its civility!

I can't figure out how folks can have time for more than one forum.

Now when someone decides to make me their whipping post of the day, I do not responds. Nothing like "Love your enemy. It will drive them crazy." Works for me. And if they insist, they go on my "Ignore" list. So if you don't get a response, you know where you went.

Beagle has been sitting on the couch arm in our sunroom, watching the same rabbit for at least 45 minutes. True dedication.

I have a feeling that if Beagle caught a wabbit, she would hug it and squeeze it and call it her squooshie.

Same with cats.

A few pages ago someone was talking about sandwiches.

I want to know why I can't seem to buy a well made sandwich anything like I make. Just for an example, a simple ham and cheese sandwich should start with perfectly toasted bread completely spread with mayo from edge to edge, not just squirted on willy nilly. Then the seperated thin ham slices must cover every bit of the bread, not thrown on in a blob of balled up thin ham slices in the middle of the bread...grr. Then the cheese should cover every square inch of the perfectly placed ham slices, and pickle slices should cover all the cheese from edge to edge. One layer of sliced ripe tomatoes should cover all of the layers along with only one layer of a lettuce, not three or four. The toasted bread top should also be completely spread with mayo like the bottom half. I'm so sick of paying good money for every sort of carelessly made sandwiches made in restaurants these days!! I'm sending them back from now on!!

While I'm venting, I'm reminded of why I don't buy pizza anymore. The knuckleheads who make it don't know how to cover a pizza evenly with the toppings.
