If you are in a hurry, this is not the website for you.  My food nonsense and recipes tend to ramble
and I babble. I’m old and feeble minded and sometimes I forget what I’m doing and wonder off
into the woods and attract mosquitoes.

There are so many wonderful Food sites now that I don’t know why anybody would want to
bother with mine but I’m having a lot of fun with it anyway. My feet won't let me be a
professional chef anymore but I still enjoy cooking more than anything except sitting in front of a
fire and telling lies with old friends.

I am a stogy old poot and, I don’t like new stuff.  I like old hotels, old restaurants, old towns, old
music and old places. I prefer classical music and classical recipes. I don’t like computers and
hand held gizmos and I prefer classical Flamenco like that of
Sabicas: http://en.wikipedia.
org/wiki/Sabicas. I don’t like Nuvo anything.

Feria de Constantina,
España, 1960.....Abuela by
now. I worked at
Constantina from 1960 to
Hablo con un acento Andaluz y soy
cómodo con español. Mantengo
contacto frecuente con mis amigos en
España y México.

Mein Deutsch ist nicht besonders gut,
aber ich verstehe genug und kann es
ausreichend sprechen; so daß ich in
Ländern, in denen Deutsch
gesprochen wird (Deutschland,
Österreich, Schweiz, Südtirol) mich
sehr gut verständigen kann. Ich
behalte häufigen Kontakt mit meinen
deutschen Freunden in Europa bei.

Parlo l'italiano bene abbastanza e
mantengo il contatto frequente con i
miei amici Italiani in Europa.

My Japanese accent is good but my
vocabulary is very limited. I study
when I plan a trip to Japan.

Je parle à seulement assez français
pour obtenir que j'ai besoin de dans
Québec, La Suisse ou France. Je
m'appelle John Martin, j'habite en
Texas et New Mexico et j'ai besoin
d'un cognac.

Quando eu estou em Portugal, eu falo
principalmente espanhol e eu tento
meu mau português………….. Eu
faço suficientemente bem.

My Languages:

English-fair, Spanish-fluent, German- mediocre, Italian-fluent,
Japanese-Accent & Grammar-good, Vocabulary-weak, French-just
barely, Portuguese-when in Portugal, I speak mostly Spanish with a
little experimental Portuguese……….it works.
I put this little search thing here so you could look for recipes and
sometimes it works but, like me, it’s pretty dumb.
Oh fiddle-Dee Dee, I’ll think about that tomorrow.

Note about links in PDFs on this site:
When you mouse over a link, the little hand will appear. If
you just click, the entire page will be replaced by the site to
which the link refers. Going back may take a long time to
reload the page you were on. If you Ctrl click, the link will
open in a new tab and thus, you keep the original page and
the new (link) at the same time. the PDF makers haven’t
solved this mess yet.
In Firefox, you can right click and it will give you the new tab or new window
options. Google hasn’t figured out how to do this yet but they are studying Firefox
and they may eventually get it right. It’s not guaranteed (computers: %^;*()_)(*&;^!)
But it works often if not most of the time. In Chrome (and other browsers), you don’
t have this option. This is distracting and you might burn something on the stove.
With the PDF and other sites open in separate tabs, you can switch back and fourth
easily. Google has a new thing called the Canary version of Chrome: http://www.
omgchrome.com/5-reasons-to-use-google-chrome-canary/ It was created in the
Canary Islands, is yellow, sings and is used in mines to detect poison gas. You can
Ctrl click in the Canary version and the links will open in new tabs. But beware! If it
crashes while you’re browsing, it means there is poison gas in your house, so get out
and call the fire department.
