I've never seen anyone here eat edamame before. I can't remember where I ran across it, but I know I ate the pod and everything.

There's a bunch about culture and life in general that you need someone's guidance for. For years as a kid I pronounced the word "facade" as "fah-KAYD" because I'd never heard it spoken, I'd just read it in books. I have plenty of other examples like that. Without guidance, most people wouldn't "get" anything. I'm nosing around in the dark on my own on a lot of this stuff. It's funny, but at the same time it's frustrating.

This is a decent place to live. But there's zero culture. It's fast food and chain restaurants, and until recently Beringer was the "nice" wine you could get. These people are happy with their meat and potatoes, so it sucks to be someone like me who wants to learn and grow and try. My options are really limited.

:-/


God no offense but dont' you want to GTFO of there? I mean I'm no monopoly man of class but I think new cultures and things. I did live in SC though for a while and I guess I see where you are coming from with the "can't tell people" you ate Thai food or something.

BTW no fresh tomatoes would be ok cause they give me heartburn and I don't digest them very well if you know what I'm saying.

We have family here, we've spent most of our lives here, and we're raising a family here now. It's not all that easy to just pick up your life and move to a new city. Believe me, I've thought about it, but going clear across the country where you don't know anybody... that's a big step.

We did it once, but moved back. Now if we move again (and I do want to), it'll be to Omaha. Omaha is, for Nebraska, a pretty decent town. They have a good restaurant scene, some outward attempts at developing the culture they have, better shopping, better entertainment in general, and the most millionaires per capita of any city in the US. So it's a decent town. It's also where my wife works, and I don't like her driving through construction on the interstate twice a day. Maybe this time next year we'll have moved there, so we'll see.

knapplc wrote:No, we get great tomatoes here. In fact, I planted two jet stars and two romas this year, and I have a BAZILLION tomatoes ripening on the vines. These plants are HUGE.

We get decent veggies, but just the basics - asparagus, corn (of course), squashes, tomatoes, peppers, onions, garlic, lettuces, stuff like that. What we don't get is good fruit, or anything other than the basics. They really do spray green fruit with ether (or formaldehyde, I forget which) and ship them to the middle states.

I see. The question remains...have you ever made Caprese? I'm always high on it during tomato season. :-L

haha...yeah. For some reason that cracked me up. Reminds me of the Simpsons episode where they run into Flanders at the apple orchard. "If it's yellow, well you've got juice there fellow, and if it's brown, you're in cider town."

I tried to make some homemade cider with apples from my tree last year. What a fiasco. I'll stick with apple butter this year.

I've been to Denver several times. It's a great town, and you can't beat the climate and the mountains. But I don't want to live there. :-b
