default Hello! Happy to be here

Post by OmaKokoBA on 12th April 2013, 9:01 pm

Laughing I found this site by clicking on a recipe for pork jowl bacon.
Now, If I can get back to the recipe, I'll start my jowls. And let you know how it turns out.

If you are interested in what my name means: it's "grandmother" in three languages.
Can you guess which three?

Oma is also Dutch and in November I was in Amsterdam when my California daughter gave birth to a little girl whose father is from Angola. So Koko is his African name for his grandmother. In February my son and his Vietnamese wife gave birth to a baby girl. So I added Ba,the last syllable to my new moniker. When you sing it it sounds like a Santana verse.

There are some erm - unusual things in the dusty recesses of this site, aren't there ? Sounds like one of Wilhelm's ... should turn out good.
