What do you do with so much squid?


Why, you smear it all over your body, of course. Or use it to wash the dog. What do you think you'd do with 6 pounds of squid, vato loco?


I've not one, single, solitary clue jefe. Not being much a fan of seafood in the best of times, 6 lbs of any sea creature sounds like a lot to me.

Pray tell, how does the dog react?

Eat it - of course!

We cleaned it and froze it for two nice family meals (one time fried squid and one time filled squid - those two are quite common and loved way of preparing squids here)...

Filled with what Leo? Please dont tell me with more squid.

Okay here is my project... for the last month or so I've been teaching myself how to do AE aircraft art, and after about ten attempts and a lot of sweat and tears I've completed my first aircraft.

Now it's not that good and not up to Dixie's standard, but it's a start. So here we are; Its a LB-30 from the 98th Bombing Group, which actually served in Europe I think. Also one of my new years resolutions is to talk with Dixie for half and hour, and get all the proper technics and tips from him.





It's good mate, easily as good as my first attempts. The biggest improvement you can make will be reducing the jagged edges.

What did you use to make it? I use paint.NET, it's got a lot of nice features and is free. The most important thing you can do is learn how to use layers. With those you can do all sorts of nifty stuff. I can sort out a helpful guide if you want, I'm not saying it's the best way to do things but it's my way.


Thanks Dixie, it's a start and maybe I have a wee bit of promise, also I'm hooked on these little pictures now. So I would appreciate any help you can give me thanks mate, and I promise you'll have a attentive student. I think you already have my E-mail address, but if you don't I'll PM it to you.

I've done some work on ship/siggy images, there is a lot more skill/work in the aircraft art. I seem to spend half the time on preparing the template, by having to strip an aircraft profile down to a line drawing.

I use Paint.Net also, and do layer my work, also I am learning about shading. But as you can see I've haven't learned to soften the edges yet. Its just the size you see, I used to do airline profiles for a airline game I played, but the scale was much bigger as you can see below.

I found the trick with jagged edges is to work with the images in large size (as you have with the image above) and only shrink it down to the final size when you are ready to paste it down over the background layer.

Squids here are quite common and delicious meal enjoyed by almost everyone!


We usually eat them fried (i.e. "Fried Calamari")

Example from one Croatian cooking site:

http://www.coolinarika.com/recept/przene-lignje





or stuffed (i.e. "Stuffed Calamari" - and yes the filling is made from squid itself amongst other ingridents )

When I first ate squid as a kid I was violently ill. I've never been able to eat it since then.

Was it cooked first? It dramatically improves palatability, I've noticed.

I felt the same about Brie and Camembert cheeses. Unfortunate coincidental timing with norovirus "stomach flu" had a long-term association thereafter.

Here too, Leo. Very popular appetizer dishes (calamari). Sometimes stuffed with other fish or shellfish too. Yum.

Does anyone besides me feel like our medical community is abusing antibiotics for simple ailments which our immune systems should be able to deal with naturally in most cases which will invariably result in an increased rate of mutation among the common viruses...a rate of mutation which we are already falling behind....and will sooner or later result in a strain or multiple strains of common viruses which our medical science cannot currently treat, leaving us in the same boat as sufferers of various poxes hundreds of years ago, i.e. hope and pray that you are among the 20-25% of the population who, for various reasons, are able to pull through?

No? OK, then, I'll just go put on my tinfoil hat now.

Fried calamari I've had. In fact, living on Long Island it would have been supremely hard not to since its a very Italian dish and you cant spit in LI without hitting an Italian restaurant. In fact, I like it quite a bit, but very few places do it well.

The squid stuffed with squid thing looks very good....but for some reason I cant help picturing that the whole mass of it is as chewy as I found squid to usually be.....which I dont think is a good thing.

Morning tithe... mild (14C) hazy morning, and going to be another warm one.

Couldn't use my laptop till after midday yesterday, because of a violent thunder storm overhead yesterday, and I had turned my electronics off. I have now heard that a teenage girl training in the Town's large heated swimming pool yesterday morning, was badly electrocuted because of a lightning strike nearby. Also it appears that the Area High-school which is next to the swimming pool, has had a lot of it's computers and electronic gear fried. The thing is that the High-school is next to us, only around 50m down the road, and the swimming pool is just on the other side about 100m away!

Onime-usually we use punctuation in our sentences in English to break up a thought. Otherwise, one's point gets lost in 75 word sentences ("run-on" sentences). So, after reading your comment, I have just one question-whadzithuh?

Hi Reg, thanks for that mate... I did try this, and made the work about 3x times the size needed, but when I down-sized the image, it was blurred.

Listen mate-if you bollocks up the turn and short out your computer by spitting coffee on it, I'm not redoing the turn. That's on you.

CB I hope you're little boy is not too bad, and the flu passes quickly.

Also I was wondering what type of bird flu it is (harmful to Emus), and can it be communicated though Pbem turn transfer?

For your information CB I do the turn electronically in my head, and upload it on to my laptop for communication to you. That is how advanced my playing style is, also means I can read the code and see your every move.

So, I'm doing our weekly grocery shopping at yon Piggly Wiggly. Working my way through the produce area when my eye notes a blonde woman in a nice tight skirt, with a nice figure. She's wearing tall leather boots-the kind that come up just below the knee. Between the top of the boot and the bottom of the skirt is the back of the knee that's accentuated with this type of clothing. It's hypnotic and I find myself staring.

She senses the staring and turns around. She's a nice looking woman. I'm caught ogling.

She speaks to me: "Oh, hi!".

I, being an idiot, cannot figure out where I know her from and meekly return the same lame greeting.

"Hi, how are you?", I lamely offer.

Suddenly my shopping list is critically important and I bury my nose back into it. She moves off. I realize that she is the mother of one of the kids in my boy's karate class. So, me (perv) gets caught ogling the legs of a karate mom. Great...

It's not 'dorky' enough that I, a full grown man, am still actively engaged in karate. Now I've got kids' parents get to see me dance around in my pajamas twice a week. Sigh...
