Welcome back, Johanna!

Parakeets in your back garden? Wow London has become exotic! I thought of doing this list, but my total wasn't nearly impressive enough, so I didn't end up posting it!!

Glad you had a good holiday - my mother has just had a week's walking trip to Austria and had a lovely time - wonderful weather and swimming in lakes instead of rainy old England.


Welcome back!

Ad #35: root beer has nothing to do with beer. My two boys, aged 7 and 9 love this stuff - essentially ice cream in soda - even though I would never try it.

Alles Liebe,


A root beer float is delicious! Root beer is a soft drink with a very distinctive spicy flavor (like ginger ale -- not alcoholic), and a scoop of vanilla ice cream is a lovely counterpoint to the carbonation and spice of the root beer. It's an old fashioned dessert my parents and grandparents enjoyed. One alternates sips through a straw with spoonsful of the ice cream with a little root beer.

As for carob, I thought it was a chocolate call it monkey bread? I'm confused!


Impressive - but then I expected nothing less :) And I'm going to make you some vodka jelly next time you visit, LOL!

Those ring-necked parakeets are a scourge - total alien invaders that escaped from a crate at an airport (so they think) and are now breeding like rabbits in West London...

Perfect list. I guess I don't need to be "tagged" to play along, in which case I just might in a few days...

You inspired me; I've posted my list too.
