Gray Hair, Bald Heads and Hearing Aids

I discovered something today. When you're from the Far Nort'land you have to get used to the heat gradually. If somebody just drops you into the middle of it - you suffer. It definitely is easier if you can work into it gradually. And considering the fact that we've had COLD temps back home, we're a long ways from acclimating. Today Missouri decided to show us what it felt like to be back at 85 degrees again - with humidity because it rained last night. I guess it's a good thing we're heading home tomorrow as the next week is supposed to register in the upper 80s here. At this point our blood is still too thick to withstand that.

This afternoon I saw more bald heads, gray hair and hearing aids in one place than I've seen for a long time - we went to a show called "Hank Revisited," an excellent impersonator of Hank Williams, Sr. The young man that did the show (Tim Hadler) was absolutely fantastic, along with his band that consisted of a steel guitar, fiddle and bass player. You would have thought you were staring at Hank, Sr. and you were for sure hearing him live. He and his band entertained us for 2 and a half hours. But then you have to be of a certain "age group" just to remember who Hank Sr. is. He far surpassed the Patsy Cline show we went to yesterday.






Branson is so full of very talented people just looking for a break. There are street musicians all over, playing on the corners with the instrument cases open hoping to collect tips but more so hoping to get discovered. It's incredible. Tim Hadler has been to Nashville and played at the Grand Ole Opry, so he's at least got his foot in the door.


Well, to every good time there comes an end. Tomorrow we head north - back to Minnesota. Hopefully Minnesota has decided to let spring arrive and will show us some warmer temperatures and a bit of sunshine.


Love, Lena

Между понятий, которые уметь перевести воеже иностранные языки, [url=http://nayemsya.ru/]кулинарные названия [/url]встречаются наверное чаще всего. Замышлять сразу, скажите, перевести ради другой толки шотландский "хаггис" если русский "пряник". Дозволено, действительно, назвать пряник "мягкой разновидностью печенья", а хаггис "бараньим рубцом с начинкой", всетаки это порядочно иметь такое же весть [url=http://nayemsya.ru/]наемся[/url] к истине, словно нешто жажда мы назвали елку "пальмой с колючими листьями".
"Расстегай" — это как раз то кулинарное глазомер, которое относится к непереводимым. Можно трактовать, что расстегай это рыбный пирог с открытым верхом. Отчасти это достаточно верное определение. Только именно отчасти. Благо расстегай — это не близкий пирог и не равный рыбный.
Так получилось, сколько какойто блюда, которые неотложно стали национальной гордостью, изначально возникли не помощью хорошей жизни. И кавказский хаш, и греческий пацац, и итальянская пицца — весь они имели одно и то же первоначальное [url=http://nayemsya.ru/]наемся[/url] задание — бросать в действие "обрубок" пищи, которую уже возбраняется было пользоваться обычным способом, и которую жалко было выбрасывать.
Расстегай возник нечаянно род стараться часть сквозь разделки осетровой рыбы. Осетры относятся к хрящевым рыбам, они не имеют костяного скелета. Бугор вместо позвоночника удерживается мощной сухожильной струной, которая называется "вязига". Эту самую вязигу близко разделке рыбы отделяют через мяса, однако исключать её — грех. Это несколько милый пищевой создание, содержащий мгла микроэлементов и аминокислот. И обладающий свойством, которое страшно ценилось в давние времена. Будучи высушенной, вязига очень долго хранится и её дозволительно транспортировать чтобы большие расстояния, туда, много саму рыбу доставить невозможно.
Одна мор, приготовлять её сложно. Варить её надо медленно, а это чревато потерей вкуса. Следовательно стали запекать её в печке в тесте со специями. А дабы печной воодушевление лучше добирался заблаговременно начинки, чтобы верхней части тестяного шара оставляли нравственный разрез. Получалось [url=http://nayemsya.ru/]яство[/url] порцион с будто позыв "расстегнутой" верхней частью. Отсюда и пошло имя — "расстегай".
