Notworthy Oh look..it's October. Wherever does the time go.
I would like a new sig line, but am not sure what it should be. So I will just put a tag that says "This space for rent"

the native American Indians called the berries CRANE berries because the flower looked like a crane (below)

laws were enacted about picking.

The Indians taught the pilgrims how to harvest the cranberries by hand. This was soon improved upon with the invention of a rake-toothed wooden tool known as a cranberry scoop. Since no one owned the vines, laws had to be enacted in Massachusetts.

“Any person should be found getting cranberries before ye twentyeth of September exceeding one quart should be liable to pay one dollar and have the berrys taken away.”

the scoop below was the old method.

the Indians were a lot brighter than the Pilgrims, and taught them to use the berries. so the Pilgrims invited them to Thanksgiving dinner and they did NOT serve that canned shit. (history by LC. hah )

I will have to say, LC, that if it were not for your push, I would not have even considered making cranberry sauce from fresh. It was no where near as hard as I was imagining. And I actually liked them, the only thing I need to work out is adjusting the sugar in it...they were a bit too tart, but still OK.

when my kids were little they tracked cranberries in the house instead of mud. the big berry-laden trucks rolled down the street spilling berries all over the road. try to get damn cranberries out of your carpets!
but in the winter the flooded bogs were perfect for ice-skating. it was idyllic...a frozen bog, skate all day, then come home and sit by a fire with some hot chocolate...great memories of a New England childhood.

As a kid I always thought that Halloween was the unofficial start of the holiday season & not much has changed. I just won't be jonesin' for snow to go along with it as I normally would be doing. All the fucking snow last winter traumatized me.

Oh, Maggoty one..didn't I write that big and bright enough for your poor old eyes? What part of I bought a bag of Craisins and put some in a salad was hard to figure out? This IS LC's damn cranberry thread for gawd sake.

OK, Maggot-breath, pay attention. You know raisins right? Dried up grapes? A Craisin is the same thing..only it is a dried up cranberry. Get it?
