Herbs and Spices

Well, would you believe one herb and one spice? The spice in this case is Ginger, and the herb is catnip... The assistant manager of our retail operation decided to give Ginger a catnip-filled toy, and our precious kitty took to it like a dolphin to a pufferfish:

She was pretty blissed out after attacking her toy, but I'm sure she can quit anytime. At least she lives close to her job, so it's not like she's going to have problems with traveling under the influence.

speaking of seasonings, did you know that spam - the canned lunch meat - is a contraction of 'spiced ham'?

and that the spices - speaking very broadly here - are sugar and salt?

during the previous century, i baked a spam in the oven, with a brown sugar and mustard glazing, dotted with cloves - i had seen the idea on the can, or maybe in a magazine - definitely not on the internet, which wasn't invented yet - it was tasty

I actually knew that, Mr Charley, but it's actually made out of pork shoulder.
