Many thanks to RR of N.-D. for the gift of squid ink spaghetti!
When I go to the "big city" I may have to look for some real "squid ink". I know a place where I can get it, with a little luck.
I very much like risotto or spaghetti with nero di seppia. Whenever I would be in Venice I would find my beloved nero. It is a wonderful thing to mix up sauces and have something other than red stuff.
Eat The Black. Eat The Red.

Many thanks go out to BK of NJ who sent a CD Musical Evenings In The Captain’s Cabin which picks up on music talked about in the Aubrey/Maturin books.
I look forward to listening to this music while eating my black spaghetti!
I see there is some music by Carl Stamitz in the disk. I played some Stamitz when young and actually used one of his concerti as an audition piece. I think of Carl with fondness.
UPDATE 16:30 GMT
Both Mr. FedEx and Mr. UPS have been here this morning.
Many thanks go out to KF of AL for the book… one already listed in my reading list, but which I had lost somewhere in my travels: Roy Peter Clarks’s Writing Tools. Great book and one I need to consult… often.
Also, many thanks to the unidentified soul who sent the salame. I look forward to it!
