RE: The Highlands

Hopefully its changed in 200+ years. I'm not too familiar with Highlands but I'm somewhat familiar with with the area a little east of there. Good to hear the area is improving. Some of the locals don't see it as an improvement. The eye of the beholder and all that.

RE: The Highlands

High end and snooty? My hillbilly ancestors were from around there. Well, a little bit east of there. I'll get on and see what's up there. It would be great if I could find something. The Highlands has had a lot of money move into the area and many of the shops in the downtown area are boutiques, cafes and other businesses associated with higher income areas. Much has changed there since your ancestors.

RE: The Highlands

Use the Allstays campground map and zoom in on Western NC area. That entire area is full of beautiful scenery. Keep in mind that the campgrounds may already be booked if you're wanting to take a trip there this fall. Leaf season is popular.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Semi-useful. I like that. I had to go down to the strip mall today. Tourists were everywhere because of the leaf color beginning to change. Glad we don't have vacay house rentals like Air BnB here. The next county over has them and they've been huge problems. The police have to constantly intervene. We have a state park with cabins, campground and lodge. 3 motels. They are kept quiet and orderly by their management.

RE: Sangria Gelatin Ring

How did it go, magnus? Everyone loved theirs. I'm hearing a lot about Jello salads again so it must be making a comeback. From the numbers it really is better for dessert than some of the high sugar and high calorie stuff. Guess people are figuring that out. Looks like Jello is here to stay at our house. It was easier than some of the desserts I've made in the past. It's good for following up a rich dinner.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Czarny sounds like a great buddy. We're glad we don't have a vacay rental near us. They've been banned in our county because of noise and party problems. I'm surprised the raccoon didn't figure out how to get back out of the barrel. Ours are pretty smart here. We call them Hairy Houdinis.

RE: Recent wonderful trip

Sounds like you had a fantastic time. Good for you! You captured the reason we live to rv.:C

RE: Newbie with a Dutch Oven

Chuck roast. A few hours and you have a tender meat. Remove and add chicken stock, potatoes, carrots and any other vegetables. Bring to a simmer and cook till done. Really good. You can get the basics from dutch oven videos on Youtube. Here's a good one: Dutch oven cooking for beginners.

RE: Sangria Gelatin Ring

WL, I made your gelatin salad and a grape jello salad for the kids. Family’s coming over for Sunday lunch tomorrow. Looking forward to their reactions. Here’s the grape jello recipe. 3 INGREDIENT GRAPE JELLO SALAD

RE: Sangria Gelatin Ring

Sister had a themed dinner, where we'd bring a dish that was popular in our birth years. For 1952, I found this one, and it's magnificent. The original recipe used lemon Jell-O, but I couldn't find any, much less sugar-free, so I used lime and it was very Christmasy looking. It's a keeper, and we'll be serving it often. SANGRIA GELATIN RING 1-1/2 cups Sangria or sweet white wine 2 packages (.3 ounces each) lime, raspberry or cherry (or mixed flavors) sugar-free gelatin 2 cups club soda, chilled 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries 1/2 cup green grapes, halved Bring wine to a full boil. In a large heatproof bowl, add boiling wine to gelatin; stir 2 minutes to completely dissolve. Stir in chilled club soda. Refrigerate until thickened but not firm, about 45 minutes. Stir in berries and grapes. Pour into a 6-cup ring mold coated with cooking spray. Refrigerate until set, about 4 hours. Unmold onto a serving platter. If desired, place more berries in the center of the ring. Makes 10 servings. NUTRITION per serving: 117 Calories 16 total carbs 2 g fiber 6 g sugar (from the fruit) 1 g protein 52 g sodium This looks great. I'm going to try this one. I'm guessing the alcohol is evaporated off from boiling so it can congeal well.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Yes, any rain is good unless the house is floating away.:B I wonder what Czarny would do if you got some chickens?

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Our hummers have decreased in visits as well. I'm sure they all migrated farther south. Sorry the food wasn't up to snuff. Dog slobber is contamination in the view of our cats. They think its toxic waste.

RE: Clusters of dog diabetes in households-Dr. Doug et al

Don't know for sure. I read somewhere once that there might be a virus that contributes to diabetes. Don't know what the latest on that theory is though.

Try the Allstays Florida Campground Map.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Poor Czarny; those pesky birds just keep getting bigger and bigger! Better not replay Hitchcock's "The Birds". Poor feller would need therapy after that. We have a German restaurant here but Herself is not keen. It's no longer open now because of COVID. We headed over to a mom and pop's tonight for steak and shrimp. Great to not have to cook tonight. Hoping we get your cooler weather here.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Glad you got some rain and the deer herd is on the increase. Deer here like our acorns. We've been going to local restaurants for about 2 months now. Everything is spaced out and the food just seems to taste better. We went out for pork chops and gravy last night. Nothing on tv. Saw they were televising cornhole championships. New one on me. Passed over it too. We've been going through our dvd collection and enjoying movies that you don't normally see anymore. Probably because they have John Wayne in them. He's not considered politically correct anymore.

RE: Anyone Mountain bike in Asheville-Pisgah?

I use Allstays campground finder. I cannot help you with mountain biking questions but if it were me I would do a search for Asheville mountain biking or call up the campground once I pick one out and ask them. Most of the campground office personnel I have asked have good info on the amenities of a nearby area.

RE: The sad part of pet ownership

I'm sorry about your sheltie. 12 good years is a respectable age. But it's never easy. Love her while you have her.

RE: Campground with RV sites and cabins

Double ditto re the state parks. Check them out. They are often less expensive and have more room between the campsites.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Sounds like a plan for the deer. Natural is always better. Don't know much about deer forage so what you've shared is new to me. Do they like clover in addition to rye grass?
