Buy fat in Philly?

Where can I buy lard and/or beef tallow (to eat) in Philly? Italian Market, right? Is there a butcher you really like and trust that you can recommend? If I want to get some today, by what time do I have to get over there?

KauaiFilter: Where can I find the best Kalua pig on Kauai, and what kind of car will I need to get there?

Mrs. Hylas and I are headed to Kauai on 12/19 for our honeymoon. We'll stay 8 days on the north side of the island in a rental found through VRBO. After reviewing previous recommendations, we'll certainly go to Hamura Saimin. Neither of us have had a proper vacation in years, so we want to have only a few plans and leave the rest of our time open for spontaneous adventure. The only thing I really, really want to do while I'm there is make sure that we find a good source for Kalua pig (luau optional). Where should we go? We plan to rent a car in Princeville, but a few people have now told me I should get a Jeep. Do we need one? Why? Finally, Mrs. Hylas is convinced we're going to want to cook all of our meals in our rental and avoid eating out as much as possible. She would like to bring a cooler full of frozen stuff to save money. I'm not so sure. What say you?

Can you identify this breed of bird and guinea pig?

Can anyone identify this bird with its chick and does anyone know the breed of this guinea pig? Both were photographed in the UK, but the bird was at a reserve that has birds from all over the world. I believe the guinea pig is a recognised UK breed.

Richard Scarry's Sausage Pig

This should be pretty easy... Does anyone remember which book of Richard Scarry's had an illustration of what I think was a pig holding a big sausage on a fork? We are going through old childhood books and the vision of that image is driving me nuts and I need to see it again.

If it smells like a pig, do we have to make a joke about it being pork?

Now that the swine flu has become an issue, is there a way to see if the "pig odor" part of the stimulus bill and such a joke on the media for a few days might have contained money to study things like containing swine flu outbreaks? [more inside]

English Bacon, Canadian Bacon . . . Who knew there was so much to a pig?
