Wow, I didn't realise she was that rare a find.

As the article says..

That's the heart of it. You can't replace unique, at any price.

Default Montana's first snow of the season likely this week ...

It won't happen in the bigger cities, but for those traveling to Glacier National Park this week, the first snow of the season will greet them!

Spent the weekend working on the cabin and got quite a wake up call yesterday.
At 6:30 AM my parent's little pug dog started barking. My Mother was downstairs and calmly announced that there was a bear looking in the window.

When my Father and I got down there the bear took off, and while we were looking out the window we noticed there were 3 cow elk standing on a small hill looking down at the cabin from about 70 yards away.

Nothing like waking up in a zoo!!

The bears are super active now as the chokecherries are ripening and the low bush huckleberries are in season. A fellow my parents know south of Big Timber had a bear tear off his screen door and come in the house, and one of his neighbors had the door open to let in some air as the heat lately has been stifling in the evening, and had 3 bears come in his house.

We heard the elk start to bugle last weekend as well. No big bulls yet, but the young bulls are getting excited. Rubs all over our timber plots. Herds are getting active.
I saw the antelope were starting to bunch up in herds of a buck and half dozen does or so. There were wild turkeys in a field next to the road, deer running across the highway in front of me, (nothing like grilled venison huh??).
The most wonderful holiday season of the year is about to start.... When peace on earth, good will twoards all reigns across the land. When everyone has a smile on their face, a song in their heart and a story of the wonders of creation is heard in every gathering.....

HUNTING SEASON!!!!

Nothing like life in Montana Huh?? LOL

Yesterday, I rolled up on the mountain. I saw deer, I saw elk, I saw a little critter that was too quick to identify. haha I had a blast. Lost a friend so had to get out of Dodge for a bit. I went up where he loved it. I swear he was on my shoulder tapping me in the side of the head, "Hey, remember when we???" It was well worth it.

For those who may not be familiar with the Egg Cream, here's The latest on that NYC favorite, the Egg Cream

The traditional Egg Cream is made from one, and only one, chocolate syrup, Fox's u-bet, made in Brooklyn since 1895, and reportedly named for the U-Bet mine that was located some place in Montana.

Following those links leads me to this pleasant retrospective with a funny title:

Reziac, corn syrup can not be used on Pesach (PEH-sahkh, PAY-sahkh = Passover) and that's why the production line has to be stopped and koshered (cleaned of all chumetz (KHUH-mitz), leavened grain products: wheat, barley, spelt, rye, and oats, which may not be owned or consumed during Passover, such as corn syrup), in order to be kosher for Passover.

In many parts of the country, Coke and Pepsi go through the same routine to make their soda with sugar and not corn syrup so it can be kosher for Passover. They print a KP on the top of the cap or can to indicate that the soda in the bottle or can is kosher-for-Passover. (While Montana Coke is now kosher, it is not kosher-for-Passover.)

Back East, I knew many Gentiles who bought 100 to 150 2-liter bottles of kosher-for-Passover Pepsi each Spring as they prefer the sugar-based syrup.

Pepsi finally figured out they were selling a heck of lot more kosher-for-Passover Pepsi than there were Jews and, hence, we now have Pepsi Throw Back, Pepsi made with sugar, and while kosher, not kosher-for-Passover.

That leavened products could not consumed during Passover, that I knew, but not owned? Wasn't aware of that.

That's interesting about Pepsi expanding the sugar-sweetened product for the Gentile market!

Fructose could come from fruit (apples are another occasional source), presumably that would be acceptable?

So what about the artificial sweeteners?
