SPECIAL CHRISTMAS EVENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"Weather permitting, people all across North America will be able to
watch the Moon glide across the low December Sun, creating a partial
solar eclipse. This event will be visible throughout nearly all the
inhabited parts of North America (except Alaska and the Yukon), as well
as from most of Mexico and the Caribbean."

TRIVIA
In Bavaria, beer is not an alcoholic drink. It is legally defined as a
staple food.

UNUSUAL MENUS
Worms, beetles, and bugs are not as American as Mom's apple pie, and
very probably never will be. But there was an occasion in 1992, at the
Explorers Club in New York City, when the New York Entomological Society
celebrated its 100th anniversary with a banquet that began with snacks
of roasted crickets and larvae and went on through mealworm ghanouj,
waxworm fritters with plum sauce, cricket and vegetable tempura, and
roasted Australian kurrajong grubs to roast beef and gravy. The dessert
was chocolate cricket torte, the centerpieces on the tables were live
tarantulas (for decor, not for eating).

FOOD FACTS
Find out some very surprising facts about French Fries, artificial and
natural flavors, and why vegetarians are upset. Go to
http://www.theatlantic.com/issues/2001/01/schlosser.htm
and read the January 2001 ATLANTIC MONTHLY article, WHY MCDONALD'S FRIES
TASTE SO GOOD: A trip to northern New Jersey, the home of natural
flavors by Eric Schlosser.
It is a long article, but well worth the read.

STONE CRAB SEASON IS HERE - (Oct 15 to May 15)
Sweet, delicious Stone Crab claws are served every night at Blue Heaven.
Stone crabs (Menippe mercenaria) are found along the Atlantic coast of
the southern U.S. mainly around the Gulf Coast of Florida and the
Florida Keys. They cannot swim, and live mostly on shallow flats in
high salinity areas near oyster reefs. Even though they possess great
strength and can crack the shell of a large oyster, they have a mild
disposition and can be taken by hand.
Only the claw meat is eaten, and only one claw is removed from the crab.
They are then put back into the sea so the claw can regrow. The shell
of the claw is 'stone hard' and must be cracked with a hammer. Stone
crabmeat is firm in texture and has a sweet succulent flavor, similar
to lobster.

FOOD TRIVIA
When the fruit of the South American Sandbox tree is ripe, it explodes.
The explosion, that is so loud it could be mistaken for gunfire, has
such force that it scatters the seeds as far as 50 feet from the tree's
trunk!
