one Thanksgiving poem, but ONE HUNDRED POEMS.
   New York City, according to my 2003 Parking Rule Suspension Calendar,
celebrates Idul-Adha (February 11-13) and Idul-Fitr (December 5-7).  (It's always
interesting to hear someone from a different faith tell me about the Orthodox
Dormition of the Virgin Mary or about Shemini Atzereth.)
   Tuesday was a holiday in Trinidad, and I'd posted a Trinidad book about
East Indian recipes.  This cookbook--inserted into the Sunday newspapers--is
perhaps of interest to record this other ethnic cuisine

   My group had a "Passionate Mousse" dessert in French Guiana.  "Passionate
Mousse" doesn't show up on Google, but there are 92 hits for "Passion Mousse."
   Personally, after seeing the Caribbean and South America, there's not a
moose there I'd want to be romantically involved with.
