Squirrel Soup

OK. In retrospect last week probably wasn't the best time possible to ask you to think about your "bucket list".

After all, the movie Bucket List was all about a couple of old geezers doing various extravagant things in what they both assumed was the last year of their lives. One of the dudes was filthy rich and he financed their spectacular round-the-world vacation.

With the financial news last week, most of you were probably wondering if you would ever be able to afford to retire, let alone visit the Pyramids or go skydiving; or if already retired you were trying to work out whether to give up sailing, stop buying gas for the car, or cut back on eating first. Some of you, in anticipation of another Great Depression, may even have been searching for recipes for squirrel soup.

But our group writing project on your sailing bucket list is still open. So switch off the news, imagine that you will be able to afford to pursue any and all of your sailing dreams, and tell the world what sailing adventures you want to enjoy before kicking that proverbial bucket. Full details at Bucket List Group Writing Project.

Place squirrel, stones and seasoning into cold water. Place saucepan onto fire, and bring to the boil. Continue to boil, replenishing water as necessary. Boil until stones are soft and tender. Throw out the squirrel and water and eat the rocks.
