Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Hawaiin Pizza is strictly a west coast thing here. The sweetest thing I want on pizza is garlic.I like anchovies to.Pepperoni,dry hot red peppers sausage,shrooms.Although I did have a sea food pizza in Thailand that was spectacular.It didnt resemble pizza in any way except that it was round but it was delicious.

It's basically the stuff scraped off the bottom of the beer barrel with an additive to two to make it (only slightly) more palatable.

Vegemite = Dead yeast with salt
Marmite = Dead yeast with salt

Pick your favorite (and enjoy this - slightly imprecise - description)

Seems appropriate since it looks and tastes like something scraped off the bottom of your shoe.

If you grew up eating it you'd think it was mother's milk, like I do.

My guess is that those cheek roses come from spending so much time with your cheeks on the seat of the toilet ( you can pick which cheeks will be rosiest, I am figuring both sets are going to be there.)
