We have the Crayola crayon melter to make swirled crayons. That was quite fun and we got our money's worth out of it. I liked that better than color wonder...



Thanks! So far I am not impressed as I thought I would be as prevalent as this stuff is.

I have a friend who bought a garage sale pan and melts her sons' leftover school crayons and puts them in cupcake wrappers (they end up looking like reeses cups) I've got a pan I bought for boiling skulls, so I'll probably use that for crayon bits at some point.

I'm not a big sushi fan.



I like sushi, but you have to get it at a really good place. Cheap sushi is not so good. It's been a while since I've had good sushi, but I was surprised at what I liked as well. I love tomago (if it's made with quail egg) I also used to snack on seaweed strips, so the flavor obviously doesn't bother me.

Orc makes a decent veggie roll though. (cucumber, seaweed, sushi rice, avocado, sometimes other stuff)

Finally had my sushi lunch with granddaughter. Don't think sushi's going to be a menu staple anytime soon. First had hissoun (?). Too hot for granddaughter, so I knew better than to try it. She ended up digging out the avocados and eating them. Then had something with tuna. Neither of us liked that. Didn't care a lot for seaweed. Interestingly enough, what I did like was eel. Ate a lot of that.



we like the eel. we also like the shrimp rolls. mrs. 1 doesn't like the raw seafood stuff, but i do. i like the ones with salmon more than tuna or some other fish.

I don't really like the seaweedy stuff, the California rolls, etc. The sashimi is more the way I like it.

eel is usually great, as are both tuna and salmon. weird, 'cause I don't like cooked tuna or salmon.

i think cooked tuna tastes completely different than raw. cooked salmon is a little more similar to raw. i think, when fresh, raw salmon and tuna have less of a "fishy" tang to them. (when not fresh, they're just yucky.)

Oh, yeah, had salmon. It was okay. And another unknown fish that was kind of tasteless.

And did NOT do well with chopsticks.



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

Maybe the tuna wasn't fresh because it was yucky. Real fishy.

If fish smells fishy its usually not fresh, it should smell like the sea.

You don't need to use chopsticks. It's perfectly okay to use your fingers.
Good sushi's hard to find. It's a shame.

I agree! We have some new places in town that serve sushi, but I haven't given them a try yet.

Brother-in-law is a sushi chef. But he just HAD to leave us and go back to Honolulu. I'm sure he's just kicking himself.

When I was in college, some classmates and I would keep and clean skulls, mostly from lab specimens, but also stuff we found in the field. We used them for reference and studying. The skulls I have are small, mice, pocket gophers, that sort. Some friends had elk, deer, coyote skulls. We'd bring our skulls for study session and that would save us a trip to the lab.

If you are going to boil skulls, you do not want to do it in the house. Preferably nowhere near your house. It's a great excuse to go car camping, bring your Coleman stove and boil them in the morning before you break camp and then leave. The lucky few got to use the bug box over at WSU, no boiling necessary and you couldn't beat the cleaning!

I understand why they have that filter, but it's the one I always forget about when writing long posts. Now the post should be easier to read.

I found a bird skull at the beach. It was already clean.
Maybe you should just leave them in the sun for a few months!
