No worries. I wrapped the recipe in a very sparkly, shiny golden wrapping paper, plus it has little silver stars all over it. Compass is bound to be impressed. I can just see his face. Am sure he would say, "Oh mon dieu!! Zeeez present, pour moi? Zat iz inkredible mes amis, merci boucoup". I don't know if he has a fake French accent or he speaks French at all, but in the unlikely event that it does not happen this way, we can always go to plan B

tee hee! Hope the present works. All this little bear knows when it comes to Compass' language skills is that he has been known to speak some latin here.

The words recipe and apples have jogged my memory. You would not happen to have a good recipe for an apple pie lying around, would you? I have "inherited" recently a fridge full of apples, and I tried making a pie myself, but it did not turn out all that well The big picture is that there are too many apples, they are going bad fast, and I don't have the heart to throw them away. There must be something I can do with them.

I unfortunately don't have a recipe for apple pie. I'm sure someone else here on the boards might though. Have you thought about making something like apple jam out of some of the apples?

My grandma used to make jam, but I always thought it was overly complicated - that's what my wife said in any case, so I did not investigate into it any further. I assume it involves sugar and lots of boiling.

Never heard of them. What type of planets do they represent? Apple bread - is that like thinly cut pieces of apple on a toast? Apple butter conjures up images of grinded apples mixed with a dairy product of one's choice.

I would think that making apple bread would be similar to banana bread only with apples instead of banana's. Not sure how to do the apple butter. I'm sure that is a recipe for it somewhere.

Nope it wasn't good that the tire that I had to get replaced was damaged in the parking lot at work by one of them drainage grates that cover the drains for excess water run off. One side of the tire had evenly spaced slashes in it about 1 to 2 inches in length. Other side of the tire had about 4 slashes in it a little longer.

What kind of tires are you running, bear? That sounds awfully expensive, and I'm in the auto repair business!

Apple butter is basically applesauce that's thicker and has more spices in it. Lots of cinnamon. Good stuff.

Not sure of the exact name of the tire. I know that it has Michelaine (sp?) written on them. the big white fluffy marshmallow looking fella is the best way to call him I guess.

Not sure of the exact sizing on them either. All I know is that it the size that is available for my car which is a PT Cruiser.

probably a low-profile higher-performance tire.

I dread putting new tires on Mrs. WHD's van--it sits on 18" Goodyear Eagles.------NOT CHEAP!

The tires for my mom's car cost more than mine do. Cost on 1 of her tires would just about cover the cost for 4 tires on mine.

Just pulled out the receipt from where I paid for my tire this morning. The tire that was put on this morning was a P205/55R16 Michelin Exalto Pilot 91H 29192. Don't know what all that mean, but it might give ya an idea on the type of tire that was put onto my car. Cost on the tire was $137.11 before tax & solid waste charge.

Have you tried eating snails Compass? Especially if one does not eat them raw, but they are well done in butter/garlic sauce with a bottle of Martini Bianco close by, to wash them down. They can be delicious.

Do you really speak Latin?
