Italian ices are a summer mainstay in my neighborhood.
Not so common in my part of the world but you can usually get some really good Italian or British handmade ice cream in the larger towns.

Thanks for PLing 9 - Section 10 now uploaded.

Re: [SOLO] The Complete Confectioner by Hannah Glasse - dc

Booms! Has an explosive sound to it. Kind of Monty Python. I like your thinking!! :) The scene with Mr Creosote sprang to mind but I don't think that he could have handled (or even swallowed) a Bomboom at the end!! :) So, the wafer-thin mint had to suffice! Thanks for PLing 7 - Section 8 now upload...

Re: [SOLO] Stories of North Pole Adventure by Frank Mundell - dc

So, the story of Nansen brings this trip to a conclusion and apart from one questionable decision, seems to have been the best prepared and organised of all the expeditions detailed in the book. Thanks for PLing 13 & 14 - Final Section 15 now uploaded. Thanks also for PLing & MCing the project - I r...

Re: [SOLO] Stories of North Pole Adventure by Frank Mundell - dc

The near freezing temperatures of late make listening to these stories more real. I'm sitting in front of the fireplace right now wondering what I eat contains vitamin C. Well, if it's of any help could I suggest that you consider including food sources such as caribou liver, kelp, whale skin, and ...

I regret not noticing the sources of the historical artifacts in the Anchorage Museum (Inuit?).
Many artifacts were probably obtained from the Inuit but could have also have been recovered from abandoned campsites, maybe?

Thanks for PLing 10 - 11 & 12 now uploaded.

Re: [SOLO] Stories of North Pole Adventure by Frank Mundell - dc

Sad that the Franklin's crew was so unprepared for travel by land. If they could have 'gone native' with clothing and food more appropriate to the conditions, they might have stood a greater chance of surviving. I recall reading in a previous chapter that breakfast for the overland explorers consis...
