Ladder -> Snakes
snakes -> compost
I find snake eggs (non poisonous European Grass Snake) each year in my compost bins. The snake is a great swimmer and likes our fishponds to hunt frogs and small fish. If I see them in time I don't touch the nest and move the compost back. If not, we have a breeding machine for our quails. But works as good with snake eggs. Farmers want the young ones because they are hunting mice too.
Compost -> Bin
bin -> la binerie
old counter style resto in montreal... classic, delicious and so wonderfully french!
la binerie => Gastronomique
Gastronomique -> onion soup au gratin
LOVE that stuff
onion soup au gratin => quiche
quiche -> lorrraine
Lorraine -> Suzanne
lorraine -> Suzanne -> baking house
oops delta was quicker, typed too long But we have an old lady named Susanne doing great baking house recipes.
Most villages here had a public baking house. Heating it was hard work and so the people doing it got a good meal with lot of meat and vegs from the village community. After bread baking the leftover bread dough from rye was used to make tray-baked cakes topped with fine cut leftovers from the meat, bacon, vegs, eggs, .... The temperature of the cooling down baking house was no longer hot enough for baking bread but enough for a Speckkuchen (translate bacon quiche) eaten by the persons who had to do fire control and cleaning the oven.
Quiche Lorraine lacks the randomness in my opinion. I prefer our variants. And I prefer the bread dough over the nowadays shortcrust pastry for quiche lorraine
Suzanne -> Oh suzanna!
Oh suzanna! => banjo
banjo -> hunting horn
I bet you exspected my tuba, but to get a hunting license you have to learn (was play) all the horn signals which are important for hunt. Even in times of smartphones, not every place has access or is in line of view. And horns can be heard by miles. My hunting horn is hanging at the kitchen door. Signal 'Zum Essen' (come eating) is played on it.
It is quicker than calling everyone of the kids by name.
Knowing the signals may be important living mid in a forest. Signal for hunt is over, secure the guns they learned with 5. But call for the lunch is most important ;)
The Hessian Jäger regiments used hunting horns (guerrilla war sniper tactics since 1632) and not drums (for line infantry) in war times. Signal for bear hunt was often to go for enemy officers, boar for artillery gunners, ... So some of the hunting signals made it even to modern army signals.
Hunting horn -> signal
signal -> data
@chattius.. yes the Tuba!
data => binary
binary -> quantum
quantum => singularity
singularity -> humanity
Humanity -> destroyers
destroyers -> Zumwalt
https://allhands.navy.mil/Features/Zumwalt#:~:text=The U.S. Navy's newest warship,naval power from the sea.
Zumwalt => Michael Monsoor
Michael Monsoor -> Medal of Honor
medal of honor -> Gold
Gold -> Rush
http://johannesburg.hotelguide.co.za/Johannesburg_City_Guide-travel/history.html#:~:text=Gold was first discovered in,was declared open for mining.
The first gold rush occurred in the Pilgrim's Rest and Baberton area in Mpumalanga and saw gold miners travelling from all over the world in the hope of claiming their piece of land and ultimately their fortunes.
A Golden Arc
The incredible amount of gold found in the Witwatersrand area was all part of a "Golden Arc" that stretches from Johannesburg all the way to Welkom. The "Golden Arc" is found where a massive inland lake was once positioned. Silt and gold deposits settled along the shore of the lake to form the gold-rich areas that South Africa is now famous for.
Gold was first discovered in the Witwatersrand area on a lazy Sunday in March 1886 when an Australian gold miner, George Harrison stumbled across a rocky outcrop which was part of the main gold-bearing reef. He declared his claim to the government of the time and the area was declared open for mining. Today one can find a gold monument where the original outcrop was and the area where the discovery was made is known as George Harrison Park and has been declared a national monument.
Word spread quickly about George Harrison's discovery and soon the small mining village that had cropped up where the gold was found, known as Ferreira's Camp, began to expand into a formalised settlement. Fortune-seekers flocked from all over the world to claim their piece of land in the hope of striking it lucky and the population grew and grew and within 10 years the small village had turned into the largest town in the country, outgrowing the already 200 year old Cape Town in a few short years.
How the town got its name
It is said that the new, rapidly growing settlement; Johannesburg, was named after two land surveyors and officials of the Zuid-AfrikaanscheRepublijk (ZAR) named Johannes Meyer and Johannes Rissik. It is thought that the two men combined their names and added the word 'burg' to the end, an Afrikaans word which means 'fortified city'.
The South African government of the time did not believe that the gold would last of a particularly long time and therefore they only mapped out small triangular pieces of land as plots, cramming as many into a small space as possible. It is said that these small plots are the reason why Johannesburg's CBD streets are now so narrow.
