Congratulations, in any case. One thing I learned during my short visit to China, patience isn't just a virtue, it's a necessity for survival. The Chinese invented patience. But then, I'm sure you already know that...

I have a few birthday presents to give to 6 yr olds this year. I was hoping the book would be ready by now, but August is manageable for starting Altoid's collection of signed first editions. :)

We'll have to work out the drop-shipment logistics once the book is published.

Oooh. Saimin are the long noodles?

From the Amazon blurb, I'm guessing it's a "stone soup" story. I too will need a copy or two, as I have these short people in my family...

Thanks, we do appreciate your encouragement.

Saimin is a popular staple here; derived from a Japanese dish that apparently was derived from Chinese Long Life noodles. I think they are completely tasteless.

Stone Soup does have plot similaries. The themes, though, are a little different: in Soup a village is tricked and learns a lesson in cooperation; in Saimin children demonstrate the benefits of cooperation resulting from cultural harmony. At least that's what I think.

I had to google a bit - seems like Saimin is the Hawaiian version of noodles in broth, plus stuff. (I personally refuse to put tofu in anything. Green onions and some bok choy and maybe a little shredded cabbage and some snow pea pods and shredded carrot and a bit of ginger and some ham shreds sounds good. Or a bit of fish. Maybe a little leftover chicken.)

Spam.

For some reason, Hawaiians and Alaskans think it's a treat. The rest of the country, mostly, doesn't. I think I've got a can of spam, somewhere in the back of the pantry. Next to the block of Velveeta. And the jar of instant coffee.

for starting Altoid's collection of signed first editions.


I was told you should contact the publisher here and include any message you want with the signature. I'll update when the book releases. Thank you for your support!

Thank you!
When the time comes, the book will do very nicely for gifts, and a copy for the school library.

I need to get my copy on order.

Dude!! Tell me it was a bad can, the only place spam tasted good is on camping trips, but ya gotta pan fry it well. I have to admit that some of my survival kits are comprised of spam and Dinty Moore stews....

:rofl: Well...I did pan fry it. Salt, fat, gristle...that was about it. It ruined the "eggs" that I did not think could have gotten worse. :rofl: :crazy:
