It was great. Small sampling portions so we shared and didn't fill up too fast. I hope you could read the descriptions of the ones we tried.

The one we likes the BEST was a tie between the Krumkake in Scandinavia and the Brie et Marmelade d'Orange crepe in France. The worst was the Poulet Cordon Bleu Crepe...just no flavor. (First set of photos)

I really really liked the Gazpacho con Ceviche in Spain..that was awesome..but B is allergic to seafood so that was a me-only tasting. I didn't want to share that one anyway... WAY too good.

Bountiful Harvest! Seems so early to us here, garden produce is just starting to come up in SE South Dakota. If this rain would stop & the sun would come out one of these days.....

Are you sure it's not whooping cough? There's quite a few cases now through-out the U.S. (Or maybe you've been vaccinated for it?)

Seems improbable to me that it was whooping cough because they heard her cough on the phone and thought it might be pneumonia. Whooping cough is pretty distinctive. OTH, I don't know if some people with whooping cough don't whoop.

BTW, there is an epidemic of whooping cough in California at the moment, but 85% of the people who got it were immunizied. Immunized People Getting Whooping Cough | KPBS

It almost always pays to bet on the bacteria/virus (or maybe cockroaches) finding a way to survive.

It is not whopping cough. I know what whooping cough is and sounds like. At 75 y.o. I think I am a bit old to get it, and I wouldn't be sitting here at the computer if it was.

I went into the good morning thread and because of pictures being stretched out it made it very difficult to use the site. So I just wanted to wish all you gentlemen I Happy Father's Day. Here's hoping everybody waits on you and what and this gives you the attention you all deserve. Where would we be without our daddies.

I think Dragon is finally learning to recognize my voice and accent. It's nice to just sit here and talk to the computer and have it type out everything I am saying. But this constantly calling for a period is a pain. It still screws up sometimes but it's getting used to me. I still have to go back to make some corrections.

You are right. I gave them a really good cough. And those with whooping cough do whoop! It is a terrible sound. I know whooping cough when I hear it. I had all my DPT shots including all my boosters as a child. And later during the childbearing years also. I also made sure my kids got what shots were available at the time. Unfortunately the measles and chicken pox immunization was not available before they contacted the diseases. I simply do not understand parents who do not believe in protecting their children.

All I have is a stinking summer cold in my head and chest. I will survive it. But right now I feel miserable.

Almost had that pesky Gopher.Missed him bythismuch.I'm on a mission with the shovel.Those little things are fast.Can't wait to WHAP him!

It owes me over 100 flower bulbs and a newly planted front lawn.The dogs will break their legs if they step into one of those holes.

I know where he lives, where he sleeps,what time he comes around.Tomorrow is another day.
