Sailorgirl has been going for 2 years
wasn't that a great deal on bananas on that last provisioning run?
I When they're that cheap of course it was smart to buy the whole
stem. So now, 3 days later you've got 60 bananas that look like
a science experiment and a crew that might mutiny if you give them
another banana to snack on.
How to disguise bananas
and use them up. Recipes.
Ever wonder where bananas came from? Wonder no more.

It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it

Louis Vuitton Cup and

current standings and
the banana tree's looks and size, you'd be forgiven for thinking
it was a kind of palm tree, but in fact it's a perennial herb, its
trunk formed from the overlapping bases of old leaves. The fruit
grows in "hands" with 10 to 20 "fingers" (the actual bananas) clustering
into a bunch that can sometimes tip the scale at 100 lbs or more.
Sailorgirl would like to send special birthday wishes to Mary Helen
Tewes who's busy sailing the Solent on her 26 foot gaff-rigged cutter
- the Mary Helen. January 10 is her 91st birthday. In December 2000
Helen and her son Donald completed an Atlantic crossing from England
to the West Indies. They cruised the Caribbean and the Bahamas then
recrossed back back to England in July 2001.
