<quoted text>I have a friend from Thailand that makes jokes about baked possum and hillbillies every time I talk to him. I had him and his lovely south korean wife over for dinner one evening. My date had made them some fried rabbit from a few that I had been blessed to get the day before. They smacked their lips and devoured every bite of that rabbit. When he finnaly asked what it was I said...why that was baked possum Tao... You should have seen his face.
I shouldn't have fessed up that it was really rabbit, but I did.
I've never tried it but I hear Armadillo is tasty. Road kill cafe I guess

But there are just as many yuck items there--- hog head cheese, tripe, stomach. When they say a Cajun eats everything but the oink -- they are not lying

My goodness! You all have been places! Funny foods. All I know is farm foods, canning, and fast food. I did eat 1 tiny fish egg, and I've had escargo. I put the squid in a styrofoam cup to take to mom to try first. Lucky her, it never made it to her though, the ice melted and it started stinking, so I put it in the gas station trash barrell.
I'm just taking a break from work, work, work and putting my 2 cents in..

It is not necessarily Cajun... We only wasted the squeal. The intestines were turned inside-out and washed in the creek, then boiled for sausage casings. Souse was made from snouts ears, eyelids, etc. Pigs feet and tail were pickled. The fat was boiled down for lard and the resulting pork rinds were ground and put into corn bread that we called "Cracklin Bread". Good stuff except for the souse. Even the heads were cracked open and brains and eggs were a delicacy (but not for me LOL).

Tobacco is still grown around here but just not as much as in prior times. In the flatter areas, I am seeing large acreage of corn nearly as far as one can see. The hill country (where small tobacco bases could be grown in the bottom land) has just returned to woods and forests or pasture land.
Many of the old tobacco barns are in bad shape and falling down and the lumber being reused such as I have done with my homestead addition interior walls. Some of that lumber is so old and seasoned that it cannot be nailed without pre-drilling.
Just last night on the way out to dinner with my friend, I saw several acres of what looked like Morning Glory blooms. I did not understand that unless it was some kind of winter cover crop or something for cattle feed.
The boards making up an old dilapidated barn can brign some big money.

August 14, 2013 - STRANGE THINGS AFOOT ON OUR SUN: A coronal hole has formed in the sun's northern hemisphere, and it is spewing solar wind into space. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory photographed the UV-dark gap during the early hours of August 14th. In the image, above, the sun's magnetic field is traced by white curving lines. The coronal hole is where those magnetic field lines have opened up, allowing solar wind to escape. A stream of solar wind flowing from this coronal hole is expected to reach Earth on August 16-18. NOAA forecasters estimate a 25% chance of polar geomagnetic storms when the windy stream arrives.

Copy/paste for my C/P fans.

When I was about 10 or so I opened grandmas freezer and saw a large paper bag. Curious person that I am I opened it. OMG !! A big hog head!! Snout, ears, hair bristles! All there!! I shut that freezer lid FAST!
I think she finally threw it away as we NEVER had any thing called souse or head cheese!

Missed that. And fire swirls would sure be a sight to see! But I made a point to watch those meteor showers. Last night I tried it again for a short time--saw several but the planes circling for a landing with their "headlights" on bright and the chill in the air soon discouraged me and I went in and hit the hay.

If you have ever bought pickle loaf, vienna sausages, potted meat, bologna, or some hot dogs; then you most likely ate some hog heads.
