    Yea knickers, congrats on the new grads, and enjoy your time off.

    I had dinner last night with a local reporter for a large newspaper in the area, he told me about a story he was going to write when he got back to the office. There was a teacher who was fundraising on FB as the local school district stopped paying for kids caps and gowns, it's a very local income area. She identified a bunch of kids she taught who would not be able to come up with $22 in a month for it. They raised $10k, in just a few days. Got every kid who needed a cap and gown one, and have reserves for next year. How cool is that.

    Celeste. Could not get on to the link. So that does not clear it up for me. Why would the manufacturs of an artificial vanilla flavoring add Beaver Butt, and , just what is it.

    Consider the different connotations placed on the words beaver butt
    In the coffee by the folks throught out the world. I don't think it would be wise for me to explain the NZ connotations. But I would love someone to just answer the question. What is beaver butt and why put it in the coffee. What does dunking the rear of an animal in ones coffee add to the experience of coffee drinking. And I thought we New Zealanders had problems.

    I rarely drink coffee, but when I have a good cup I wonder if I care if it has beaver butt in it, I don't really think I do.

    But heck I am British, so I drink tea. And that's not the sorry excuse you American's ship over as tea, no wonder you don't all drink it.

    Castoreum /ksˈtɔriəm/ is the exudate from the castor sacs of the mature North American Beaver (Castor canadensis) and the European Beaver (Castor fiber). Within the zoological realm, castoreum is the yellowish secretion of the castor sac in combination with the beaver's urine, used during scent marking of territory.[1][2] Both male and female beavers possess a pair of castor sacs and a pair of anal glands located in two cavities under the skin between the pelvis and the base of the tail.[3] The castor sacs are not true glands (endocrine or exocrine) on a cellular level, hence references to these structures as preputial glands or castor glands are misnomers.[4]
    Today, it is used as a tincture in some perfumes[5] and as a food additive.
