Space - - - - the Final Frontier.
These are the voyages of the starship, Enterprise.
Its five-year mission: to explore strange, new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.

This morning I went downtown to a writing job ... had a single solitary snowflake land on my nose. Only one in town. It picked me.

Probably a good sign.

Bad sign, now that's where they all will land. I don't like it there when it's cold...it's a wet cold....even in Spokane where my aunt/uncle lived.

Magic, Omens, Wisdom

The owl is the symbol of
the feminine, the moon and the night.
The owl is the bird of magic and darkness, of prophecy and wisdom.
The owl is associated with Athena.
An owl totem gives you the power to extract secrets.
Meditate on the owl and things will be revealed.

Listen to its voice inside of you.
You will hear not what is being said by others, but what is hidden.

You can detect subtleties of voice that others cannot.
People cannot deceive a person who has an owl totem.

Owl people can see into the darkness of others souls.
Most owl people are clairvoyant because of this ability.
It can be very scary at times.
Learn to trust your instincts about people.
Let your owl totem guide you.

Snowy Owl
Conserve your energy until the time is right; be observant of your surroundings.
Has the power of prophecy.
Barn Owl
This totem reflects the ability to the heart and the mind.
It can connect you to spirits and the houses that they haunt.
Mediums and “ghost hunters” often have this totem.
This totem can give you very strong clairvoyant abilities.
Barred or Spotted Owl
People with totem can appear threatening on the outside,
but are actually very benign.
This Owl can teach us how to use your voice to great effect.
Screech Owl
Very courageous and ferocious, this Owl teaches you how to be a fierce individual
with an ability to cooperate with others.
Short-Eared Owl
This Owl gives you the ability to show up at the right place –
to take advantage of opportunity.
The Owl represents a blend of fire and air; they stir a passion for life
and fire the inspiration.

They awaken the imagination.

Great Horned Owl

This Owl is a fierce protector.
It is the lunar opposite of the Red-Tailed Hawk (who represents the Sun).
Gives the ability to adapt to constant changing environments.
The harbinger of Spring.
Does not have a good sense of smell and may impart this trait to its totem people.

Reading that made me think one thing ...

hey Chuck, you got a recipe for owls?

12-30-2009, 04:46 PM
They have this at the Loggers Landing restaraunt in Quilcene.

Put a prepared owl in a big pot with a granite boulder.
Boil the pot for several hours.
When the stone gets soft, throw away the owl and eat the stone.

Owl recipe from Louisiana Cookery, circa 1954.

"Pick, clean, and marinate in vinegar and oil overnight. Parboil, then dust with flour, and fricasse until done, adding water or marinade."

This recipe was just after a recipe for crows and a few before a recipe for porpoise.

7/8" cedar won't bend for squat? Even green?

I did not know that. But... Oh, I see where you're going. You can buy 5/4 stock, resaw it, and cold-mold over it. Much stiffer, just as light, maybe a little cheaper. I gotcha.
