                A bit on pasties, which are particularly well known in mining communities due to immigrants from Cornwall in England: https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/...insula-pasties (Very similar to empanadas...)

                  Dave....Thanks for the "Heads Up" on Pasties. At 73 years old I am still learning, which is a good thing I believe. I also thank you for a recipe for making these little gems. Being a single guy, cooking is sort of a second hobby (a necessity if I want to eat at home) to me and I plan on trying these out. I remember as a young kid we could buy meat pies and I loved them, but it seems they just went away, as so many other good things have from the past. I remember when I was in boot camp at Ft. Jackson, I had a friend named Tom Laehy. He was from Haverstraw NY. I mentioned one day how I missed Mexican food. He did not have a clue what I was referring to. He had never heard of tamales, enchiladas or tacos. I still remember Tom after 50 years. Sorry about the lengthy reply. Thanks....John

                Pasties....

                Not likely what the strippers wore either.

                John, Pasties are a big item here in Michigan. Available in most grocery stores and many specialty shops in the Upper Peninsula where mining was/is taking place. Pronounced as Past - tees, think of them as a precursor to Hot Pockets. I also ran across a source for them in the Slate Pit Belt of Pennsylvania - where many Cornish immigrants settled and worked.

                  Thanks Bruce. I left a comment on Daves previous post. No need for me to duplicate. Thanks....John

                I first encountered pasties back in the 70's when I lived in southwest England for a couple of years. I had one for lunch almost every day of the work week along with a miniature mince pie. Never tired of them.

                    Some really stunning work here. Despite the forum being offline for so long, looks like everyone still had a productive year.

                      I did another O scale fishing boat this year. Started with a cheap, out of scale $10 kit, Mainly wanted the hull.
                      All of the cabin is scratchbuilt, plus lots of detail parts added. Named for my daughter.

                        Hi Phil. that is just some of my leadlight glass I used as a water fill in, for these photo's. It is known as water glass.
