    Fascinating. What's the lecture on? It couldn't be music, eh?

    Please let us know, Glenn.

    I'm old enough that I was in Elementary School when the Beatles were at their peak. They were a major influence on my musical development. Hello Goodbye/I Am The Walrus was the first record I ever bought with my own money. I was 9 years old.

    Do still have the LP's, or have you gone digital?

    What format would you like? (Excluding tape - those have died over the years.)

    I've got music, and thank you. I should have asked if you still play LPs, what kind of turntable, all that..

    The Beatles are great! I have not listened to them in a while though.

    I guess I'm a bit of a redneck...



    Levon is sorely missed. As is Joan Baez, bless her lovely heart.

    And this. My cousin died a few years ago, and left me me aching. She really liked this one.



    Her signature line was "The circle never turns back", and no, it doesn't.

    You have me in a mood.

    This girl is a little rough at the edges, but it's a very good take:



    Besides, Axl Rose isn't nearly as pretty...

    While we're at it, have you ever heard of zydeco music?



    Beausoleil means beautiful sun in French. Michael Doucet is one of the best, in my opinion.



    And I just freakin' love Cajun and Creole cooking. Give me the Cajun trinity over a mirepoix any day! Want my recipe for shrimp/crawfish/trilobite creole?

    Thanks for sharing Dr_Toad!

    Beautiful song. Sorry to hear your cousin died a few years ago. Even though people in our life die we still have good memories of them, of course.

    That is a good saying.

    I have heard that kind of music before but I did not know what it was called. I like it!

    Good music!

    I have heard Cajun cooking is great but believe it or not I have not had any yet! If I ever vacation down south in Louisiana, where I believe the Cajun culture and cooking originates, I will be sure to try it. Sure, I would love your shrimp / crawfish / trilobite creole but I think I may need to find a specialty shop for the crawfish, because I live up in New Jersey, and a time machine to get the trilobites, ha ha!

    Trilobite Creole

    You should be able to find crawfish in your local grocery stores. If not Louisiana caught, then Vietnamese. It's actually not that rare, but if it's not in a regular supermarket, it's most certainly in an Asian market.

    I like using ground chile petin instead of cayenne. Let me know and I'll send you some, but it's hotter than hell...

    Thanks for the offer but if you like you could just send me the recipe and my parents and I will make it. My dad and I both love hot food but my mom likes food mild. I will check to supermarket or a local Asian market for crawfish.

    The recipe is the link in the first line of my above post. I like the recipe with crawfish, but you could use anything from chicken to alligator, just not beef..

    This place has a weird CSS scheme...

    Thanks! I missed the link at first. I have heard of eating Alligator before but i have never tried it alone and cooked or in a dish. What would you compare the flavor to?
