Two spaniels

There were two spaniels in the hills beyond the dining room today, or at least I think they were spaniels, but they were mostly hidden behind rock.

Dogs are sure cute, but for my money you can't beat voles. I can sit and watch a vole forever and never grow weary. Once I watched a vole scurry back and forth using a cleaver method of pushing under leaves and other forest litter for almost the entire month of September. It sure was cute! I really grew to admire the little fellow. Then a feral cat got it and ate it. I was sure sad! I hope that darn cat doesn't find the spaniels!

And what of the plight of other beings? We wring our hands and purport to cringe at crimes so laden with horrible intent. Still mankind denies mercy to its most unprotected: yeasts, viruses, bacteria, single-cells. Can we not feed ourselves without feeding on these tiny co-inhabitants of our spinning destiny?

The manager over at Warren's Buffet writes: Huzzah to Mr. Thermopole for raising the ethical question that we all pretend doesn't exist! It is time for our species to challange itself to devise new forms of sustenance.

Also, did you know that almost all living things with circulatory systems from tiny voles to giant elephants -- including man -- share the same number of heart beats in an aveage lifetime, approximately 1.5 billion for each. The variation is the interval between beats: a tiny vole might have a heart rate of 1000 times a minute and a whale can have a heartbeat of 20 per minute. This translates into an elephant living 60 years and a squirrel living 5 years. Man has altered the basic average by developing hygiene and medicines, thereby prolonging the life cycle.

Still, huzzah to Mr. Theropole.

Did you see a couple of puppies on the previous page? I can't seem to find them. I think a litle boy has picked them up and put them in his pocket.

I would like to share my recipe for corn pudding with all of you.

2 ears of corn, cooked and stripped from the cob.

1 package of Royal chocolate pudding mix (I never use the instant type, being a purist).

Mix all the ingredients in a pot, add liquid. Stir in corn just after the pudding mixture has completed cooking. Pour into serving dishes and allow to cool.

I like to serve this mixture revoved from the dish over sliced cukes as a side dish to my popular varmint hash.
