    Best hot and even better if you have some kind of dip

    My favorite is spinach artichoke dip but cheese dip or dill dip are good too.

    I guess my Mandarin will be limited to:



    KeyYe yiyibe Deuccua,,

    I spelled it in English as best as I could.

    I was hoping to understand my Partridge Chanticler hens, it appears they speak Mandarin.

    I understand that, and they do have a Canadian Accent and they say "Hey" after every sentence.

    I think EJB taught them Mandarin. He does that so no one can break in and command his attack chickens to attack him. Which is the same reason police dogs are trained in a foreign language. It must work too, as far as I know, no one has ever been able to turn EJB's chickens against him.








    and on a side note. Calgary people do not have the French Canadian thing going, to me they sound like Montana people.

    I tried to hold one yesterday, and I understood very clearly what she thought about being held. It was a very short petting session..
