The first post asked if we in New England still celebrate Bon Fire Night.

When I'm sarcastic I often leave people thinking I wasn't, and that's how I like it. If you think I’m being sarcastic, and I’m not, that's your problem. Don't worry about it. :cool:
You get old really fast Llaim.

Oh! Was that sarcasm? I'll let you figure it out.

Im guessing either sarcasm or dyslexia.

Scott, Welcome to the BBB. You will see that any thread is subject to hijacking and side-conversations between "posters". I'm also in New England and I've never heard of Bon Fire Night nor do I give a damn. Blow him off. Time to take the thread in the direction you want. The power is yours...or..."if you only knew the power of a dark side".

Whoooo HOooooo! Women of Power Unite! Katie and Serenity, take this puppy to Cuba! Or to Hershey Pennsylvania, a suitable location for a thread with this title.

Or to New Zealand, where we can discuss the delicacy "Pavlova", just the name of which makes me drool.....mmmmm! Gotta plant me a passion fruit vine! <dead serious icon>


Oh deary me: I got seriously cross-threaded!How embarrassing!

How about it gets hijacked to StaPuff Land?

Serenity and Scott...you must have heard of our New England-style bonfire nights. They're called keggers and they're held in the woods multiple times a year!

:)

...oh yeah, and go sox!

I know it's not baseball season but it's been a while since I've said that.

Oh...is that all it is?...wait...in the woods? Last time I cut through the woods (in the 80s), I found a couple of campfires with some sort of charred, furry creature nearby.....it then dawned on me that people were holding ANIMAL SACRIFICES :eek: ....so I high-tailed it and never went back to the woods

Has anyone else noticed Katie's listed as "5th Chair" on her post on this thread, but "Conductor" everywhere else?

Now I have to wipe my keyboard. ;)

I love pavlova & my wife makes an excellent one. She does it every year for my birthday, and occasionally to give the homestay students a taste of NZ. (Don't tell the Aussies though- they think it's theirs). A young Korean lad once had a memorable 3 helpings, then licked the plate clean.

....as in "forest", that which includes "trees"....Did the annual fires burn all the trees down in Sandy Eggo? That's OK, you can have "keggers" at the chaparral, or in the shrubs (thickets..if you will).

Serenity, we declare any area a "National Forest" if there are more than three medium shrubs per acre. I don't think you can count a manzanita as a "tree". Fires burn grass, greasewood, scrub, prickly pear, chaparral, and trees people have nurtured in their yards.

The only things I can think of called "keggers" are parties featuring a large container of beer, usually held on the beach. Also often featuring visits by various uniformed public servants and health officials.

I don't think "woods" are as big as a forest...I'm not really sure...I just refer to it as the woods...more than 3 shrubs, but less than 1000 trees maybe?

I don't know... :)
