Well, sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't.

Autie's cousins are pros. I believe they just had the World Noodling Championship in Red Dirt Hell last month.

Yup. They comed up here one time a long time ago one time and said they was taken us noodling. All I could say was "you gonna stick your hand where?" So we stayed home.

Hannibal has missed a lot of questions that he should have given intelligent and informed answers. This is one of them.

RI , Thanks! I loved it. Can't wait to try it with my new water skills. I meant Roe's comment was the second one, so it over before yours or over yours. You know that comments on here don't have to make sense, they don't have to have anything to do with the thread. And, when you come right down to it, everything is relative. Speaking of nuts, what do you think of the mother who was arrested because her son weights more than 500 pounds?

Found out the hard way I have a reaction to Pine Nuts. I like Cashew Chicken, but not necessarily any nut by itself.

It seems there aren't that many true nuts. Of the real nuts, I prefer the hazelnut or filbert.

Botanical definition A nut in botany is a simple dry fruit with one seed (rarely two) in which the ovary wall becomes very hard (stony or woody) at maturity, and where the seed remains unattached or unfused with the ovary wall. Most nuts come from the pistils with inferior ovaries (see flower) and all are indehiscent (not opening at maturity). True nuts are produced, for example, by some plant families of the order Fagales.

Order Fagales Family Fagaceae Chestnut (Castanea) Beech (Fagus) Oak (Quercus) Stone-oak, Tanoak (Lithocarpus)

Family Betulaceae Alder (Alnus) Hazel, Filbert (Corylus) Hornbeam

R-I, Is that a dare? No, but they are fun to climb and the pine cones are good for throwing at the girls.

I did have a 1965 Plymouth Valiant that ate one once.

Multi, Roe is right over your head. Just look up. As I said in the other poll on the other side of the page on the same question, I like fresh roasted cashews. Roe, come one, as much as I loved your links, I am guessing your favorite to be beer nuts.

"I used to be able to name every nut that there was. And it used to drive my mother crazy, because she used to say, "Harlan Pepper, if you don't stop naming nuts," and the joke was that we lived in Pine Nut, and I think that's what put it in my mind at that point. So she would hear me in the other room, and she'd just start yelling. I'd say, "Peanut. Hazelnut. Cashew nut. Macadamia nut." That was the one that would send her into going crazy. She'd say, "Would you stop naming nuts!" And Hubert used to be able to make the sound, he couldn't talk, but he'd go "rrrawr rrawr" and that sounded like Macadamia nut. Pine nut, which is a nut, but it's also the name of a town. Pistachio nut. Red pistachio nut. Natural, all natural white pistachio nut." Harlan Pepper.

The very expensive smoked almonds in the gallon tins are the best. And do we argue the green boiled peanuts are legumes issue here?

RETICENT_IRREVERENT 4 years, 8 months ago
