I heard you were having a pledge drive.
So far I found six cans of pledge in the house . I think the neighbor might have some too. Then I just need a horse and a boombox playing rawhide I figure I can drive them up to your neck of the woods in a couple hours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27am Caryn:

I'd keep the boombox, ditch the horse. Just turn up outside the station wearing a trenchcoat, lift the boombox over your head and play some Peter Gabriel. Go for something super-proggy in order to get Ken outside.

@Brendan: As long as the cans have $100 bills in them.

they have kishka at Kramarczuk's in mpls, but I haven't tried it.
Avatar 11:10am DJ Stashu:

I never post things THIS long but this time I will:

Kishka or kishke (Slovene: kašnica; Belarusian кішка, kishka; Polish: kiszka / kaszanka; Romanian chişcă Silesian krupńok; Yiddish kishke; Hebrew קישקע; Russian кишка; Ukrainian кишка) refers to various types of sausage or stuffed intestine with a filling made from a combination of meat and meal, often a grain. The dish is popular across Eastern Europe as well as with immigrant communities from those areas. It is also eaten by Ashkenazi Jews who prepare their version according to kashrut dietary laws. The name itself is Slavic in origin, and literally means "gut" or "intestine."[1]

Here's a real geneology note from my mom "My dog is named Minsk, which of course is the capital of Belarus. The earliest references to Minsk date to the 11th century (1067), when it was a provincial city within the principality of Polotsk. In 1242, Minsk became a part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, and it received its town privileges in 1499. From 1569, it was a capital of the Minsk Voivodship in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. It was annexed by Russia in 1793, as a consequence of the Second Partition of Poland. From 1919–1991, Minsk was the capital of the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic" THANKS MA
