    About Cashews..!

    An interesting read. Tells about the history of where they came from and how they grow and how they've been exported as a crop to various parts of the world.

    Interestingly enough, the cashew isn't a nut at all, but rather a legume.

    Nope! Moderators don't get perks. That could be considered a bribe.

    If I can't find a law, I'll do like our Supreme Court does and interpret one to cover it. :D

    Don't want any pecan pie (much to sweet), but I'll take all the nuts (and cashews) you can send to Jackson, TN. :D I love brazil nuts and almonds.

    What makes you think cashews are legumes? The first link said they were related to mangoes.

    Peanuts, of course, are.

    Ahem. I know you're not suggesting that moderators could be had for such paltry gifts as pecan pies, no matter if your sainted mother made them. No, moderators and administrators are made of sterner stuff than to succumb to favoritism over such trifles, which would only be accepted as a sign of appreciation for their incessant vigilance and evenhandedness, which, to be sure, can sometime make them weak for lack of nourishment.

    Now, of course, if you're willing to fork over some Bob's ribs ... that's a different story.
