    For those not acquainted with the term, the stomachs of a cow.....
    Worse than Spam, which is at least fit for human consumption.

    It's an aquired taste, I happen to like both, as well as other parts of
    cows, pigs, and other delicious animals.

    You're not too far away from Philly. The home of pepper pot soup. Also known
    as Menudo to friends from south of the border.

    Yeah, lucky we are. I think cooking tripe may be worse that eating it.

    I think anything can be made to taste great. But somewhere along the line I
    decided some things weren't meant to be eaten. Got tired of it reminding me
    of being a kid. I will however eat just about anything ,including menudo ,
    If I make it myself.

  9. I did consider white paint for the cabrio I was planning to buy 5 years ago
    but I was advised by various people not do do it as it would affect
    residuals. Funny thing, as in Europe up to the eighties white was very
    popular and was promoted by Merc on safety grounds. Plus Merc's very bright
    Arctic White was not available for this car.

    So I chose black instead. Almost as 'generic' as silver... :)

  10. I wonder if changes in color preferences reflect a change in social

    A happy, confident, exuberant group might pick loud colours.

    A more cautious group may choose less attention getting colors.

    My impression is than in the last couple of decades people have moved
    more muted colours, but I have no data to support that.

  11. And the lease company may prescribe muted colours for resale reasons.
    Then there's the observation that loud colors (bright red or yellow)
    tend to be the ones that fade long before the car is mechanically ready
    for the scrap heap. Faded paint coats look awful and repaint jobs are
    very expensive.

  13. Mercedes bright red or yellow, both of which I have seen (well, bright paint
    on Mercs, maybe aftermarket), won't fade prematurely... ;-)

    Oh, I dunno. I have survived (and enjoyed) an actual "Goat Grab" in a
    genuine Bedouin tent with a genuine Bedouin family in the Empty Quarter
    of Saudi Arabia. But to this day, I still will not eat sweet potatoes
    (or yams) in any form, pudding in any form, or offal. It can wiggle, it
    can be strange, peculiar or mysterious, no problem. But those three
    things I can detect in any quantity from about any distance, and I
    cannot (not a matter of 'will not') eat them. Just won't get past the
    plate or onto the fork (or into the right hand as it happens).

    Pho is another tripe based soup which is delicious and of course the
    Scots have their haggis and the southerners love those chitlins and
    fried pork rinds. Sausage, liver, kidney, brain, sweetbreads, blood
    pudding, scrapple, blutwurst, duck tongues, pickled pigs feet, beef
    tongue, etc., etc are but a few delicacies enjoyed by a lot of people.
    Expand your horizons beyond that overly salted and chemically preserved
    Spam and you might find some real dining pleasure.

    Well, I can't even begin to comprehend why yams or sweet potatoes are
    so awful they would rank with offal. And I'm not even sure just
    exactly what offal really is, since many cultures use most every part
    of the pig or cow but their respective oink or moo.

    Most meat products are really nothing more than tasty protein if fixed
    properly. Sweetbreads sauteed in a wine sauce are delicious for
    dinner, as is a chopped chicken liver sandwich for lunch. And who
    could pass up that Pennsylvania delicacy fried scrapple with scrambled
    eggs for breakfast.

    I would venture to say that some people would lose their appetite for a
    lot of common meat products if they saw a feeding operation or visited
    an abattoir.
