My sister and my 8yr old niece moved in with me 15 months ago following my sister's divorce. She was only supposed to stay a few months to save some money and then get her own place. Obviously, she's still here and there doesn't seem to be an exiting plan in sight. More snowflakes inside. [more inside]

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 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.

My father will likely have to have an aortic valve replacement. He's 63. His choices are a pig valve (with an expected replacement time of 15 years) or a mechanical valve (and a lifetime of coumadin). Any personal experiences? What do you recommend? You are not a doctor. [more inside]
I recently bought a share of a pig from a farmer, and it came wrapped in various cuts. One of the cuts is a large, meaty, bony one called "chine end roast." How should I cook this? [more inside]
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.
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]

While abroad last fall, I had really awesome sandwhiches. It seemed like every pub we ate in had a brie-and-bacon-on-some-sort-of-bread available. Now that I'm back in the states, I want to know where to find English bacon, or how to substitute for it. [more inside]
