Ginger Spice, probably. . .

Seriously, though, folks . . . I think Anise.



It's "sweet" rather than peppery, but has a great flavour, best to buy the whole pods and cook with them - then remove them at the end. The flavour "dries out" quickly if you grind it.

If a tree falls but no one’s there to hear it…

If a tree falls when no one is there to hear it, did it actually make a sound? The answer comes down to what is “sound”? If sound is defined as airwave disturbances caused by motion, we could answer that yes, a sound exists even if no ears hear it. But quantum theory holds that without a measuring device to record it, sound does not exist. When scientists determine how sound is to be defined, we promise to let you know.

Sounds, colors, smells, tastes, feeling of touch are brain signals. If there's no brain, there are no brain signals (including sounds).



The Battle of the Bzura (or the Battle of Kutno) was the largest battle of the 1939 German invasion of Poland, fought between 9 and 19 September 1939, between Polish and German forces. It began as a Polish counter-offensive, but the Germans outflanked the Polish forces and took all of western Poland.

The Battle of the Bzura took place to the west of Warsaw, near the Bzura River. A Polish breakout attack gained initial success but eventually faltered after a concentrated German counterattack.

Spiny lobsters, also known as langustas, langouste, or rock lobsters, are a family (Palinuridae) of about 60 species of achelate crustaceans, in the Decapoda Reptantia. Spiny lobsters are also, especially in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, South Africa, and the Bahamas, called crayfish, sea crayfish, or crawfish ("kreef" in South Africa), terms which elsewhere are reserved for freshwater crayfish

Sedona, AZ is a city that straddles the county line between Coconino and Yavapai counties in the northern Verde Valley region of the U.S. state of Arizona. As of the 2010 census, its population was 10,031.It lies within the Coconino National Forest.

Sedona's main attraction is its array of red sandstone formations. The formations appear to glow in brilliant orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. The red rocks form a popular backdrop for many activities, ranging from spiritual pursuits to the hundreds of hiking and mountain biking trails.

Sedona was named after Sedona Arabella Miller Schnebly (1877–1950), the wife of Theodore Carlton Schnebly, the city's first postmaster, who was celebrated for her hospitality and industriousness. Her mother, Amanda Miller, claimed to have made the name up because "it sounded pretty".

The 2019–20 locust infestation is a pest outbreak of desert locusts which is threatening the food supply across the regions of East Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, and the Indian subcontinent. The outbreak is the worst in 70 years in Kenya and the worst in 25 years in Ethiopia, Somalia and India. The plague began in June 2019 and continued into 2020, although locust swarms have experienced steady declines in population and geographical reach from May to October, and are, as of November 2020, primarily found in the Horn of Africa and Yemen.

Pat Morita died at his home in Las Vegas of natural causes. Nobody could believe me when I told them Morita was already dead. People think that because they are watching an actor in an old movie, the actor may still be alive, and sometimes some actors are forgotten by the managers, the directors and their public. Someone told me, “ I don't know if Pat Morita died or not, but I know Mr Miyagi died”....
