Mudbug is a slang term for crawfish. Part of my heritage is from Louisiana, so I chose to remember it with my moniker. My friends around here usually call me mud or bug.

i'll jump in for barbara since she's not here right now. have you ever heard of a sloppy joe, ishbel? it's ground beef spiced and browned, then cooked in a bbq sauce-like gravy and served on a hamburger roll. well, a maid rite is a specialty from iowa and illinois that is like a sloppy joe, but the ground beef isn't in a thick sauce, more of an au jus, so the meat is crumbly or "loose". hence a loose meat sandwich.

Thanks for the info BT....!

Hmmmm I've seen sloppy joes on menus in the States, but have always been slightly embarrassed to enquire what they actually were! Thanks!

More specifically, loose meat is steamed ground beef. The fat drains away, but they are still very moist from steaming.

I would love the recipes too buckytom.

Speaking of Radar, James said they had a special M*A*S*H celebration in Ottumwa and Gary Burghoff (Radar) was the only one who turned them down!

Thank you jkath. I think a lot of my furry friends. Blue in particular intrigues me and has for years. He walks alongside me when I take the dog for a walk, as though he's a human companion - right by my side, except to stop momentarily for an occasional roll in the sun on the concrete sidewalk. People come out of their houses (sometimes with cameras) to ask me how I trained him to do this. All I can tell them is that this is what he choses to do, because we all know you can't really train a cat. He's a complex fellow.
