Hello and greetings from Guam

Hi all, nice community you've got here.

Been cooking for about 20 years and all I've learned is that there's soooo much to learn. Looking forward to educating myself more here.

I love cooking with coconut milk, lemon, local vegetables and leftovers.

I like food photography too.

peace!

Welcome Guamdude! Very interested in hearing about the kinds of foods you prepare on Guam and seeing some of your pictures. My grandfather was stationed in Guam during WWII and he has took some cool pictures while he was there, it looks like a beautiful place to live.

Hey Toots, methinks you need to see it to believe it. Not much there, really. Lots of Goonie Birds (which are beautiful on the wind, but gangly on land.)

Never seen a goonie bird. Where would I look? And wow, if there isn't much here, I feel very fortunate to keep in touch with the outside world with my lil' ol' puter.

I'll post up some images when my account clears.

Well hello GuamDude - I used to live on Guam - back in '68, '69, 70, It was a beautiful, tropical, quaint island back then - MUCH different than it looks now. No building was over 3 stories high. Glad to have you and looking forward to your posts.

Well, I haven't been there since '60 and '61 when I was in the U.S.Navy. It wasn't much then, but I actually loved all the Albatroses on the little, flat island. You should see those big birds on the wing out on the ocean. Awesome.

Welcome again, and I too look forward to your pictures.

I was too young to realize there was nothing to do there. BUT, what I loved each and every day was snorkeling, diving, watching the MOST beautiful sunset, and enjoying the "tropical life". I loved it all except for the shrews and the geckos - eventually you just name the geckos and get over it as they aren't leaving your house! But the shrews? Naw...I couldn't stand them!!!
