Re: PICTURE POST II!

Your grandfather was quite handsome, tsq. He did look like your brother (I've seen the pics you posted of him).

If I may ask, didn't you mention your brother was diabetic?

^He was handsome, huh. Now he has very long hair and admits he looks a bit the stereotypical indian.

Yes, my brother was a type 1 diabetic. He died from hypoglycemia after a tennis match when he was 16. My grandfather also has type 1 diabetes, and so do I.

Type 2 runs in my family--my mom, dad, three of four older sisters, and most recently, my older brother.

Your brother was really cute, too.

That's very sad.

I didn't know you were part Chippewa. (Or maybe I did and forgot.)

There are a bunch of Chippewa in my family. Both my Grandpa's sisters got a bit adoption crazy and gobbled up a sibling-set each.

I only know one of them well though. She and my mom are the same age and have always been really close. She's pretty big into her heritage and has taught me a lot over the years. She speaks the language fairly well and has taught me a few words too--not that I can ever pronounce them.

On the positive side at least there is more that can be done (in most cases, though not all) to prevent or at least delay the onset of type 2. Type 1 is a whole other ballgame!

Your brother was really cute, too.
He was. Pretty much the cutest thing ever. And in case anyone needs proof:



And my all-time favorite picture of him:

I'm half Indian half white. Falcon, my grandfather, is Turtle Mountain Band Chippewa.

Anishinabek language group is really difficult! I know one song in that language, but that's about it. My mom can speak a little bit of it. The words are super long...it takes like 47 syllables to say "May I have some coffee?" And if I'm remembering correctly, coffee translates literally into "black medicine water."

Re: PICTURE POST II!

A handsome family, indeed!
Ahem.. do you by any chance have a brother or cousin in his 40s or early 50s over here in Germany? I'm kinda bored with being single

Sorbus aucuparia!

The ripe berries are to be picked after the first frost (or frozen after picking) as the frost will make them a little less bitter (the pectin content, however, is reduced by frost, so if you're making a jelly don't let the berries freeze).
You can pick them before the frost and infuse the fresh berries in water over night and then change the water before cooking them into a jam or jelly. This will remove much of the bitter taste (but also some of the vitamins).
These berries are also good as a chutney (goes well with venison) in which case you throw away the water after boiling them.
In Bavarian they are called Vogelbeeren = bird berries

^Oh, chutney and venison! I had that a few years ago at a nice restaurant in Neuschwanstein. Yummy!

This is from one of my many trips to the mountains here in Romania:

TSQ, your family is very handsome! I have three brothers and cannot imagine losing one of them. I am very sorry for your loss, especially at such a young age.
