I own a VW Beetle. I found a VW Beetle forum and it is the same way. They have alot of trash posts that talk about Seinfeld, movies, and Star Trek. I prefer our site because it keeps to tech stuff and people's projects. I only have about 5 posts on the VW forum.

Speaking of "RICE"

Shrimp Perlo Recipe



Ingredients
Serving 16 people
  • 4 lbs. Fresh Shrimp
  • 1 lb. Salt Pork
  • 4 bags of Rice (your choice - not yellow)
  • Garlic Powder (or minced garlic)
  • Lemon & Pepper Seasoning Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Seasoned Salt
  • Paprika


    1. Peel 4 lbs. of uncooked shrimp
    2. Start cooking rice of your choice - 4 bags of precooked (no yellow rice)
    3. Cut up 1 lb of Salt Pork into small tiny pieces the size of match sticks - then cut these in half.
    4. Fry Salt Pork on medium to high heat until brown in large 5-6 Qt. cast iron fry pan. (You can use an aluminum pot or any heavy pot if you prefer) Note: Do not drain Salt Pork.
    5. Add Shrimp to salt pork and cook until all the shrimp turn pink.
    6. Add 2 tablespoons Black Pepper
    7. Add 2 teaspoons Garlic powder (or minced garlic)
    8. Add 1 teaspoon Paprika
    9. Add 2 teaspoons Seasoned Salt
    10. Turn off burner.
    11. Add 1 teaspoon lemon and pepper seasoned salt.
    12. Add rice and stir.
    13. Eat
Notes:
If it tastes too dry, add butter
If it tastes too greasy, add more rice.
The smaller the shrimp the better.
1 bag of rice per pound of shrimp (of course Florida River Shrimp are the best)
You can add more rice or less rice depending on how many you are cooking for.

The only non-big3 car I ever had was a 76 Volvo, and only because it was free. I have never owned a rice rocket. I once had a girlfriend who had a 74? Toyoda Saleekuh. So we broke up. Generally, I don't even like them to be on my driveway. In the winter, I make sure that I have an ice hump at the foot of my driveway so that they can't even use it to turn around.

Jamesbo, that looks like a good recipe, I think I'll lift it. I had a KILLER Paia (sp?) when I was on my last cruise. We stopped over for liberty in Southern Spain. WOW! some of the best seafood gumbo/soup I have ever, ever had.

Paella


Paella is like chili or vegetable soup, there are a million recipes


Paella
Serves Eight

8 chicken legs
3 chorizo sausages, cut into 1 inch pieces
4 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 1/2 cups medium grain rice
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon saffron threads
4 cups chicken stock (or 2 cups chicken stock and 2 cups clam juice)
1 pound shelled & cleaned shrimp marinated in:
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup white wine


1/2 pound fresh mussels and/or clams
2 cans artichoke hearts, drained
1 jar whole pimentos, drained
1/2 cup fresh or frozen peas, cooked and drained
8 lobster claws or crab claws
2 lemons, quartered



In a large pan, brown the chicken legs and sausages in the olive oil. Add chopped onions and garlic, brown. Remove meat mixture from pan and reserve. Add rice to pan and cook until slightly golden and transparent. Add salt and pepper. Bring stock to a boil. Dissolve saffron in the boiling stock. Cover rice with the stock and put the meat mixture back in the pan. Cover and cook slowly until the liquid is absorbed (about 30 minutes) on the cooktop.
Marinate shrimp for at least one hour. Remove from marinade before adding to paella pan after the liquid has absorbed into the rice. Garnish paella with mussels/clams, artichoke hearts, pimentos, peas, crab and lobster. Cover and let the garnish ingredients steam for 20 minutes over a low fire (so the rice on the bottom does not burn). Serve with lemon sections.

Stay in by the fire and EAT

Leave the poor defenseless Wappiti's alone
[Yes, I gave up hunting and now "Support the Right to Arm Bears"]

Stay home by the fire and mix up some of this stuff, you'll be the hit of the party. This is really good. Just be sure to carmalize the onions.

Barefoot Contessa Onion dip
Makes two cups.

2 large yellow onions
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup good mayonnaise

Cut the onions in half, and then slice them into 1/8-inch thick half-rounds. (You will have about 3 cups of onions.)

Heat the butter and oil in a large sauté pan on medium heat. Add the onions, cayenne, salt and pepper and sauté for 10 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 more minutes, until the onions are browned and caramelized. Allow the onions to cool.

Place the cream cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and beat until smooth. Add the onions and mix well.

Taste for seasonings. Serve at room temperature.

I am just funn'in with ya.

I have a good friend who brought me some smoked bear chops [Ursus Americanus as opposed to Urus arcto or Ursus Horribilis] and they were delicious. I was however, amazed at how small the ribs of a bear were.

He also brought me a Venison Tenderloin that was mighty fine also.

I've also got some Elk sausuage in the freezer my boy sent me from somewhere. Haven't tried it yet.

But I still prefer duck and quail as game meats.

Although I've murdered a few million of them, I don't care too much for Dove either.

Oo, oo [Said as in "Car 54 Where are you"]

Many years ago, I came home to my old apartment and my room mate thought he was cooking up some doves from the freezer.

Unfortunately they weren't dove but Marsh Hens I had shot at Cumberland Island.

They need to be soaked in buttermilk to get the mud/fish odor out of them for at least a day.

The apartment stunk for week, Smelled like a Tuna Boat stuck on a oyster bar.

Pheasant are my bird of choice. Great on the grill. Met a bear once 30' from me in the brush facing each other. He looked at me I looked at him and we both decided to go in opposite directions. Good thing for me as the rifle was slung on my back so I could use both hands to get through the brush.

Guns & Ammo

Hum, So let's talk a little gun stuff. Pre 64 mod 70 Winchester is my favorite rife. And I would vote for a Belguim Browning Superpose for Scattter gun. But I still have grandpa's model 12 Winchester with 2 set of barrels

I inherited a model 94 30 30

My mother bought it for my Dad in 1961. It is like new. It hadn't been shot since 68, with less than a box of shells through it. I'll pass it on to my kids. I have learned through the years it is tough to beat an old wingmaster 870 12 ga. pump. I had mine parked for years while I used a benelli 20 ga auto. I think I'll be parking the benelli for a few years. I also inherirted a 1873 sprigfield rifle that my G-grandfather bought about 90 years ago in SD. Supposidly it was retrieved from the battle of little big horn but think he lied to. We shot it a couple weeks back in SD and it still works great.

1873 trap door Springfield

Now you hit a subject I know about.

Is it a rife or saddle ring carbine? Springfield made many variations of the trap door and I would be more than happy to tell you more than you probably want to know about it.

Look for date stamp at top of trap door.
and date stamp on lock plate.

Cartouche stamped in side of wooden stock on left side above trigger guard, inspector marks on the barrel at receiver,
Does the trigger have groves in it?
What type rear sight?
Coarse or fine checkering with oval arround it, on the hammer spur?
What's the serial number?

I have a list of Serial numbers of some of the guns used at the Battle of the Little Big Horn-really

The 7th Cal shot 38,030 round of Springfield ammo and 2,954 round of Colt pistol ammo

Sorry this is exciting to me.

If it can be verified in any way to be a Custer era trapdoor, you've got yourself something VERY valuable.

It is a long rifle. It says US model 1873 on the top of the trap door. The serial number is 252274 where the hammer hits the trap door.
There is a stamping on the wood above the trigger but I can't quite make it out. It is about .75 in long and .5 in high.
The trigger has grooves in it that run the length of the trigger.
The rear sight flips up with a hole that looks like a Christmas tree.
I can send a cople photos if you need further info.
Thanks for the help.
Dave

Wood stamping [cartouche] should look like script ESA [inspector Erskine S. Allen]

Sight should be folding leaf with graduated steps [side view] and a movable slide with a "V" notched into the top of the slide.

The sight you described sounds like a Buffington rear sight that has 2 screws on the right hand side at the top.

Since you don't have several to compare this is going to be tougher. But the arch on the bottom of the trap door is steeper on early 73's

Earlier 73's should also have smooth triggers.

Unfortunately, all of the serial numbers of Custer guns I have, all have 5 diget serial numbers

But I have another book [of course at another house] let me keep digging.

So far I believe you have a newer trapdoor that the 7th Cal used, [1876] But that's cool, It could have been somewhere else interesting.

The fact that most [if not all] of these trapdoors encountered service makes an origional unaltered rife rare. Most were re sighted, overhauled and refinished at government arsenals with various new interchangeable parts such as sights, triggers, hammers etc.

Later as the new "smokless powder" became avaliable for the "new" Springfield Krag rifles, many trap doors went to Guard units etc.

As a side note; Trap door Springfields #311218,322,599,322,634, 472,841,472,927,472,941 were sunk 1898 on the U.S.S. Maine in Havana Harbor and were recovered and sold for $25.00 in a catalog.

If ya got one PM me

Later still, some were government reworked, had their barrels sawed off, filled with lead and equipted with a leather cover bayonet. These were used to train troups for WWI in bayonet practice.

But you definitely have one of the last black powder US arms made at the Springfiled Arsenal.

More than you ever wanted to know Huh?

If it's a pre 64 [Before Olin bought out Winchester] you can easily tell by opening the lever and looking down from the top towards the chamber. If the follower [thing-a-ma-jig what pushes the rear of the cartridge up from the magazine tube] looks machined it was made prior to 64, If it's a stamped part it's after 64. Either way they're great guns.

But alas Winchester, like Oldsmobile, is gone but not forgotten.
