As for the weight, it does depend on the "overrun" aka air that's whipped in. Generally the cheaper the product the more overrun, less/cheaper inclusions like nuts cherries etc.
I know y'all are a "thrifty" group (read cheap) but I figured i'd ask anyway. I got an answer on another forum I'm on of $2 per scoop so there's a big swing from y'all.
Split the difference. $2 for the cone and one scoop. Dollar a scoop for anything added.

While that's more than I would pay, it's probably fairly rational in the CA/AZ market, where "instant gratification" items (like ice cream trucks) tend to be higher priced than the ol' Montanan would expect. After all, Costco gets $1.50 or so for a large ice cream bar on a stick, and does a ripping business.

Went to Westby MT last Friday with a couple folks to go pheasant hunting. The town is aaaalllll the way in the NE corner of MT. One guy I met here in Helena is from that little town so we had access to a lot of farms. What a gorgeous area.

Was my first time hunting upland game. Took my family hand me down Browning A5 12ga and did pretty well. Got a dozen or so birds, so I'm happy. I liken' them to rabbits with wings, lol.

What are the origins of the two types of Menorah? Also what's the logic behind the Temple Menorah being forbidden public display? (There seems to be some practical application behind almost every Jewish law, even if it's not immediately obvious.)

You can readily see it by looking directly above the Eagle on the reverse of the one-dollar bill (it's in the stars).
Is there a record of why the Star of David was included in the Great Seal? Tho seems to me they were trying to include symbols for a variety of great historical dynasties that left a lasting heritage.

I like to play with Escher-style impossible triangles. One day I found myself with this interesting variant on the 6-pointed star:

I haven't been pheasant hunting in years (and I have a life time upland game bird license). Sounds like you had a great time and that's the important part.

........Hey ThreeRun........

Just 'broke out the Lap Top' after several days of travelin'....me and the Brittany. Saw your post re pheasants....... I'm now here in northern Illinois for my 60th high school reunion. Did a little pheasant huntin' in that N/E corner of MT as I passed thru on the way into ND. The Brittany (REX) sure had fun with a few of those "ditch parrots'. That Browning A5 is the gun I grew up with back in the 1940's.......used it for everything: pheasants, rabbits, squirrel, duck & , geese, yotes & deer (slugs) etc. It sure could 'take a lickin' & keep on tickin' (shootin'). Glad you like our upland bird hunting.......wait until some of those Huns and Sharpies bust out in front of you......not quite as easy as nailin' those big ole Roosters (B-52s). See ya,

P.S...gotta go now....goin' check out some of those 'ole Cheer Leaders!!!!!Hee Hee

Judaism 101: Signs and Symbols should answer many of your questions abut the 7-Branch Temple Menorah..

The 8-Branch Chanukah Menorah is related to the 7-Branch Temple Menorah:

In 199 B.C.E., the Greek Seleucid dynasty that ruled Syria took control of Israel from the Greek Ptolemies. It was under the Seleucids that anti-Jewish decrees were first issued against the practice of Judaism. Sabbath observance, the study of Torah, and male circumcisions, for example, were forbidden on pain of death. In addition, Greek gods and other symbols of Greek culture were put inside the Holy Temple, desecrating the center of Jewish ritual life in Jerusalem. To add insult to injury, the pagan Greeks also slaughtered pigs in the Temple.

Led by Judah Maccabee, the Maccabees (which in Hebrew, means Men Who are as Strong as Hammers), a force much smaller than the powerful Greek armies, led a guerrilla uprising that, after several years, triumphed in 165 B.C.E. On the 25th day of Kislev, the Maccabees reclaimed the Jewish Temple, which was, at that point, almost unrecognizable as a place of Jewish worship.

The Talmud (includes the Oral Torah, the codified explanation of how to obey the 613 Commandments given at Sinai and found in the Torah) says that when the Jewish army wanted to rededicate the Temple, they were unable to find enough specially prepared oil to light the 7-Branch Temple Menorah.

According to rabbinical myth, in one Temple chamber, the Maccabees found a single bottle of oil, which normally would have lasted only one night. However, by a miracle, the one bottle of oil lasted eight nights, until new kosher (ritually clean) oil, fit for Temple use, could be produced.

In commemoration, each year, beginning on the 25th day of Kislev, on Chanukah (= Rededication), the 8-branch Chanukah menorah is lit, increasing the number of candles lit each night, until on the eighth and last night, 8 candles are lit. In many American households, red, white and blue candles are set aside for use on the final night.

If there is, I'm unaware of it.

After viewing, I needed a few minutes to collect myself so that I could walk a straight line into the kitchen to make some pop corn!

That's kind of what we're thinking, $2 for the first 1.50 the second and $1 thereafter.
Ya gotta figure in transportation, equipment, food cost and TAX at 10%.
