And I loved her.
Speaking of Danish food (harrumpf!) the BEST thing about it that I remember from childhood was this super yummy dessert:

My paternal grandparents came from Copenhagen in the early 1900's, lived on Long Island so I only saw them once a year.

I remember Aebelskivers and currant jelly, don't recall ever eating this rice dessert.....but am going to have to try it.

Aage & Maggie, the Danish rice dessert sounds scrumptious. I am really going to try it. Love rice pudding - this will be a great alternative to the rice and raisin version.

The Swedes make pepparkakor every Christmas. It is similar to gingebread, but lighter and crispier.

Honestly, that is the only sweet thing I remember my Swedish relatives making. They were big on the salt/savoury foods vs. sweet.

I have had those, and they are delicious.

Am getting ready to make gingerbread cookies for my grands.......their favorite, interestingly enough, even tho there is very little frosting on them.

Sounds so nice, Maggie.

Have a wonderful holiday with your family.

Someone asked if I'd like to see Adele next year. I said okay.

Wish they would quit poking at her weight. (Joan Rivers was notorious for that.) What weight? She looks normal to me.

Thanks, FaN, and Happy Holidays to you.

Adele is such an amazing singer, I love her. I thought it great that she went to an Adele impersonator competition, impersonating an Adele impersonator....and got away with it, until she began to sing.

What a woman. Go see her if you can!


Maggie

Won't be going, Maggie.

I'll defer to Bruce Allen's Reality Check, "Adele Fans Left Frustrated."|

That's disappointing.

I have read of all sorts of ways people can pre-reserve blocks of tickets, before they actually go on sale, causing just this kind of thing.

On another note!.....a Shirley Valentine-ish, women's gathering is on mid-September in Astoria, OR at Fort Stevens SP we're thinking.

I'm heading for the west coast, after all, after the Wyoming gathering mid-August. Will hopefully also visit friends off the coast of Seattle.

Fort Stevens is Gail's recommendation... I haven't looked at exact dates or reservations to check availability yet. I think it will just be a few of us....

Would love to have you come down. Think about it. :

Will really try, Maggie. Thank-you for the invitation. With my food business and the vintage-aviation group, it's hard to make any long-term plans.

Speaking of which (vintage aviation group) the FaN has become craft central. I am making 20 of these steam-punk book-box centrepieces for our fundraiser. The organizer just told me we could be moving to a larger hangar, and we might need 20 more!

I really enjoy doing stuff like this, though. It's creative and relaxing. I think these book-boxes will look really kewl - the Edison light bulb will actually light up.

Yep, you are one creative woman, FaN. Those are indeed, very cool.

I started a SV gathering thread, we are doing the weekend of September 9-11 at Fort Stevens SP, so keep a watch on that and hope you can make it.

Was there anything kewler "on the road" than a '65 Mustang (besides an Airstream)?

Stumbled across this neat video. In the time it took for the Vandellas to sing "Nowhere to Run," another Mustang was ready to roll.

I think Airstream with their stop watch timers trying to shave seconds off the assembly process are getting the speed up and the quality out. There are too many structural variations across the models for true quick assembly line process times. The number of rivets on a 16' Bambi are far fewer than a 3e1' trailer of any trim line. And they are not putting rivets in every rib.

Well, this is interesting. Now the geek in me wants to investigate various assembly line times. Everything from the average car to an A380.

BTW, what is the average assembly-line time for an Airstream?
