Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!

2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.

8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

        Many ways to cook morel mushrooms. A common way is to sautay them in butter plus salt and pepper to taste. If cooked to long they become rubbery. Only need to be cooked one minute or two , should be soft(but firm and melt in your mouth.
        If cooking dried(they keep excellent) one has the option of rehydrating them with liquid of choice. Example, I like water or beer, a friend likes milk etc.. Also can be used in stews ,sauces etc..
        Flavor is sutle but unique.
        The pic of my freind(cat) was me practicing this pic transfer.
        My freind showed up at my door 14 years ago. It was 27 below zero Fahrenheit. I said to him I was sure we could be friends and I had plenty of extra room. He took me up on the offer and we've been inseparable until his passing 3 months ago. I'm sure he is in a better place. A bob cat of Manx/Persian mix.
        The only cat I've seen climb a tree and then come down backwards like it was no big deal. Cool cat, great freind.

          Also, the morels you are looking at are dried. When rehydrated they will become 10(approx.) the weight.
          What you are looking at is a robust meal for one or a delightful fo two.

            Sorry for multiple posts. You are also looking at 3 kinds of morels. Blond, Dark, Grey. They run together so I pick as I find them. All have that subtle, unique flavor/chew. Unlike other mushrooms morels dont have that mushy gooshy mouth feal but are more like eating a fine piece of steak.

                Up here in this part of Alaska we have two white barked trees, the Aspen and the Birch. The white part of the Birch bark often peals off the tree trunk in thin paper like pieces. On the first 3or4 feet of the trunk from the ground up and again about 8or10 feet up the trunk of Birch trees one can sometimes find a growth that resembles a mushroom but they are hard like wood and can be large like a splayed hand or larger.
                A Korean friend told me this story. An old Korean man in Korea went to a doctor with a big lump on his body. The doctor told him the lump was cancer and their was nothing medical science could do.
                (if that happened in America I imagine the doctor would have then said--- have a niece day that will be seventeen thousand dollars and you need to make another appointment before you leave but after you've paid the 17 grand).
                Anyway the old Korean guy goes back to his village and consults with the village herbalist.
                The herbalist tells the cancer stricken old guy to get some of these wood like mushrooms from the Birch tree and cut them into pieces so that 4or5 pieces could fit in the hand. Then throw in water and bring close to a boil, then reduce heat to a low simmer for 4to6 hours. Forgot to say one gallon of water.
                Doctor then told the old guy he could repeat this 10 times so each handful was worth 10 gallons of tea.
                Old cancer stricken man does this faithfully for 6 months then goes back to medical doctor. Doctor finds one tenth of cancerous lump and expresses surprise.
                It is a prized thing in Korea. I'll take pics tomarrow or next and send.
                And yes I love my friend.
