    by the way, Etienne Klein is very famous in France and very appreciated because, he is clear in what he says and try to teach people to be critical about what they see, what they hear, he try to teach people to think by them self. I like him very much.

    Boudin is French and it is a sausage made with pork blood. You can find it also in Ireland and maybe in Scotland. It is called "black pudding"

    for Toulouse's sausage : https://img.cuisineaz.com/2880x1920/...-toulouse.jpeg

    edit : apparently, Wikipedia says that Boudin exists also in Spain, Italia, Romania and Russia, what I didn't know

    This is the boudin Iím referring to https://www.beststopinscott.com/prod...tegory/boudin/

    Scott, LA is the boudin capital. Thereís regional flavors in Louisiana, but just about everyone agrees that boudin from Scott is best. Blood boudin is not widely made. I personally donít care for it too much, more older generations like it.

    I never heard of blood sausage (Blutwurst) until I came to Germany. Never knew it was made everywhere.

    I'd say that one form or another is made very widely. While the term is widespread, I would guess that the actual sausage that results is wildly different from one region to another.

    Of course, at some level, sausage is just sausage. I have a link to that here.

    While hiking, we stopped for a meal at some place along the trail that was playing a bunch of 80s music. That song came on, and the gal I was hiking with didn't recognize it, nor the term 'Rick Roll'.

    Perhaps it is more fruited and nutted?

    As far as I can tell there have been a number of failed attempts to replace it. Some used Smashmouth, some Weezer, some The Beach Boys, and one group of them I see was using Glenn Miller playing In The Mood.

    But what can you expect of a generation where all restaurants are Taco Bell, the hot TV show is "Ow, My Balls!" and their fine dining music is a piano player singing the "Green Giant" products jingle?

    Mixed up your analogies, there, but "Ow, My Balls!" is a great reference.

    Fortunately, they are kind of wrong, too. The point behind idiocracy was that stupid people reproduce at a faster rate. In fact, it's less educated people, not stupid people, and the two groups aren't all that related.

    It rained last night, there were showers this morning (I took one), and sprinkles all day. It's the first we have seen since May. Unfortunately, it barely dampened the ground.

    Maybe next month.

    We have been experiencing the exact opposite problem. It has rained everyday for weeks now.

    I actually enjoy the rain, but my lawn is a bit neglected. Then again passing a mower right now is sure to leave bad ruts.

    We've been on a bit of a cool streak here. 80's to low 90's. Was surprised how cool it was this morning. Think we normally average @ 95 daily high.

    This summer has been unusually cool here too. Typically when it rains here, it cools off for about 30 minutes then it gets hot and humid. But this year after it rains it seems like the clouds are lingering around causing it to stay cool.

    Yeah but you guys have high humidity. That makes it so much worse. I don't like humidity. We're at 34% today. I'll take 100+ with 34% over 90 with 90% humidity. I guess you would get use to it but it just kicks my butt when I use to visit my sister in Houston. Now they live by Lafayette, so same thing, different location. lol

    I do remember visiting Arkansas and it was the most bizarre thing ever. I would get hot, stand under some shade, and I would just cool off.

    I thought Houston was bizarre. It never cools down. It was 90 during the day. I got up 4am to go fishing and it was 86.

    The Florida Keys were even worse. Nothing like being surrounded by a warm, shallow, sea, to keep your temperatures stable (in the low 90s...pretty nearly always) and your humidity high (also in the 90s...pretty nearly always).

    We have high humidity, today. That's very unusual for us, and it causes weird problems. We normally don't get condensation.

    Yeah, Houston is real close to the gulf of Mexico. That's where we went fishing. Think they said they water temp was 87. This was September.

    Boudin is French and it is a sausage made with pork blood.
    You might be able to solve a mystery for me. 9 or 10 years ago I was in a restaurant and was given a truly terrifying sausage. I think it was called something like "Liberty" sausage, but I might have that wrong, and this was in Normandy (in case it's a regional thing). I remember the waiter saying it goes back to the French Revolution It was pretty pungent and I think it was made mostly from offal - I clearly remember it having tubes in it (veins and arteries, presumably). It was also very coarse.

    Any idea what I'm talking about?

    If it was dark red almost black, it was boudin (black pudding) if it was more grey like , it could be some andouillette if it was warm (https://www.google.com/search?q=ando...Gs6zA1u2oWVSHM)

    or some andouille if it was cold : https://www.google.com/search?q=ando...-WJonSaYzro7gN

    and it is not vein and artery, it is intestine parts.
