    This reminds me of the famous quote from Sir Theodore Cook, commenting on Richard Clapham's 1924 book - 'Sport on Fell, Beck, and Tarn'....

    "Many men can do things of which they say little and write less. Many men can write whose personal experience has been so uneventful that they have nothing of original value to record. Fortunately for those who love sport in wild places, the author has been able to describe his experiences among the mountains of Lakeland in a way which will not only be a real help to those who propose following his example, but will also give great pleasure to the many who delight to read of the resourcefulness of the unaided sportsman among the solitude's of nature. The keynote of this book being that a comparatively poor man may, if he gives his mind and heart to his game, have just as good a time as the plutocrat, and better."

    Obviously I'm not implying that MP is a 'poor man' (nor plutocrat), but merely expressing my overwhelming anticipation of his forthcoming account of otter observation/ interaction amongst the Kara Karas of Madagascar.

    Good luck MP, and bring me back some oysters if the otters haven't yet finshed them off.

    No, no one is allergic to it. That's why they've banned peanut butter from all public schools in Ontario. :rolleyes:

    http://allergies.about.com/od/peanuts/

    Or how about...

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/...ve&db=PubMed&list_uids=11197398&dopt=Abstract

    Fortunately, most adults know whether or not they're allergic, so they can avoid dangerous foods. It doesn't make it any less annoying to go on a charity ride and find out that you can't eat anything because someone decided that everything needs to contain some form of peanuts.

    I have a friend that is alergic to nuts. He is very aware of his alergy and how dangerous it might be. If there is any possibility that a pre packaged food containst residues of peanut or any other type of nut, the FDA mandates that it must be informed in the label.

    It is a very serious alergy. Dont down play it.

    Thank God I am not alergic. I just downed a 18 ounce jar in less than 4 days.

    Once you try almond or cashew nut butter, peanut butter will become too pedestrian. Marantha RAW almond butter takes the cake. Almonds are a good source of calcium to boot.

    Peanut Butter on Whole Wheat Bread is a complete protein. I forgot to have my toast this morning and now must wait or pay dearly at the commuter cafe for some more of that slightly melted peanut butter on warm toasted whole wheat bread.... I can't stand it anymore.
