Snowhook Patch For The Iditarod

“Things seem really busy down there in Plunderland,” says Spence.

Admin nods. “Did the Plunderers want to be involved in the design and manufacture on the patch for the sled, or the equipment bag, or wherever it was supposed to go?”

“I’m not sure.”

“We were looking for something with Chet seen from behind, overlooking a snowy vista,maybe with a team racing  across,” Admin says. “And what? at the bottom?”

“Sounds hard to do,” says Spence. “And the Plunderers are already so busy.”

“Well, let’s throw it out there, see what they say over the weekend.”

“Are we having an Easter egg hunt?”

“What’s the point? Chet ends up with all of them.”

What’s this? Easter egg hunt? Doesn’t ring a … ah, it’s coming back to me. What a life!

Welcome Sage and Basil. Sneakers, please try again.

    Details – how big is the patch? What sort of orientation, landscape or portrait? or square? round?

  2. B.Stover

    I like the patch as described by Admin. Not sure what “production” involves. What do we need to do?

    Good morning Liz…or is it good night there?

    Rio set up the email address and gave us the password that we can use for sending things off this blog. I haven’t tried it yet but…..Barb: I’ll send you a test recipe using it.

    Good morning.
    I like the image of Chet’s silhouette watching our dog team running across a snowy tundra. Maybe we could see Whitey-Lance’s
    red and white jacket on one of the dogs. The patch would match the book covers. I can’t help drawing such a thing unless you want stick dogs.

  5. B.Stover
    9:17 am on April 22nd, 2011

    Excellent Dawson. I like the idea of Whitey-Lance’s jacket.

    Hey, Chet: Do you eat the shells and all?

  6. LizF
    9:18 am on April 22nd, 2011

    Good morning B! and D! It’s good night here – 11.15pm. I’m just here to put up the cookbook info before i collapse into bed. Dawson, u r so right about the prep, it’s a bore.


    Deadline: END OF MAY
    All recipes to Barb, either by snail or email to her, or via the dishlickers email address.
    Barb collates all recipes by 31 May and sends to B for editing. At this stage you two can use either electronic or hardcopy, whatever you prefer, but they all have to be typed up eventually.
    Pictures to Melanie by the end of May.
    Subjects: mostly the finished dish or a nice arrangement of the ingredients? Pictures of four-leggeds okay too, but this will be a design issue and might not be possible to include everyone even though there were some cute ideas (4-legs with their bowls etc).
    Melanie sends JPEGs to me, probably best on a CD if there are a lot of them. M – email me for my street address and we can discuss file sizes.

    Deadline: FIRST WEEK OF JUNE
    Pics on way to Liz, B sends all files to me via email only – no scans, Word files only.

    Deadline: END OF JUNE
    Finished cookbook up on the Snowhook website as a PDF.

    What do you all think?

    Great plan LizF.

  8. B.Stover
    9:32 am on April 22nd, 2011

    Great plan Liz. So that I know which laptop to use, what Word software do you have? My school laptop has the latest Word (is it Office 8….I don’t remember) so perhaps I should use that laptop. What do you think?

  9. Melanie
    9:35 am on April 22nd, 2011

    Okay LizF, do you want a specific size or pixel size?


    I just remembered that OTAS has two (very old) paintings he did with the a Newf and dish. Is it okay with everyone if I use a pic of a painting?

    Riö: Will be doing a video of YSAS cooking ribs. Needs it for a hosting reel! Sooooo, not sure when we are doing it. He’s here for a week or so. I will let you know when it’s up.

    Good morning! Eagle Pic!

  10. B.Stover
    9:36 am on April 22nd, 2011

    Chet: I’m being editor again–“Well, let’s throw it out there…”

    CHarris: Regarding publication of the cookbook, see Liz’s message above. It will be in PDF format on Snowhook’s website so no publisher necessary (right Liz?).

  11. Melanie
    9:40 am on April 22nd, 2011

    One more thing before I go off to pick up Jesse.

    Chet, I could photoshop one of your imagines from one of the bookcovers on to a photo.

    If Rebecca could send me a photo of a snowy vista with one of their teams mushing (?) across, I could make this work.

    Then using filters I could do it as a painting, or sketch or whatever people agree to.

    What do all of you think?

    Do need the size.

  12. B.Stover
    9:42 am on April 22nd, 2011

    Melanie: Wonderful!

  13. Basil and Sage
    9:52 am on April 22nd, 2011

    yah, yah…cookbooks, patches all that other stuff. fine. But did anyone notice who two of Chet’s new friends are – huh, didja?
    Those are two of the finest looking friends we have ever seen! We think that anyone with their “friend” picture at the top of the list should be able to have the ‘puter for the day – so PAWS OFF CORGI-BUTTS!
    (besides, the Corgis won’t be around much since YSAS is here – they get to visit with him. Betcha they come home with an autographed picture too…..humppff!)

  14. LizF
    9:54 am on April 22nd, 2011

    B – that’s right.

    M – well, images for the PDF cookbook can be 72dpi, I’ll send a minimum size later. (Or probably a maximum size is more useful…) If we ever go to hardcopy it might be worth keeping a 300dpi version of each.

    Great eagle pic!

    Whoa!…..Wait just a cotton picking minute!….snort!…. Why would we put the Dishlicker Cookbook out on Snowhooks blog in complete form?….grunt!….Isn’t the idea to raise money for them? I thought it was going to be like the Calendar, you have to order it to get it? …wheeze! ….I’m not giving away Grandma’s recipes for Nuthing…grump!

    Computer’s on its last legs. Might be all those payment notices we get from the UN and Africa and pharmacy deals.

    Thank dog so many of you have so many talents for recipes and patches. Recipes to Rio’s dishlickers account as soon as we can unfreeze Word.

    Wishes for a happy spring renewal weekend, however that looks to Everybody: Passover – Easter – baby goats 🙂

    Happy weekend, Everybody, in case it gets lost.

    10:00 am on April 22nd, 2011

    I thought putting it on Snowhook’s website as PDF meant that people have to pay to download it?

    Liz: Which Word software do you have?

  19. B.Stover
    10:14 am on April 22nd, 2011

    Basil looks so smart and Sage looks so comfortable.

  20. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:21 am on April 22nd, 2011

    Download!…How do you propose enforcing payment before downloading the document if you put it out there to begin with?…grunt!

  21. Basil and Sage
    10:46 am on April 22nd, 2011

    Melanie – we love the photoshop idea, but would it be too “busy” with a whole team racing across the snow? What about just the back of Chet sitting with the back or profile of Whitey-Lance, the two of them looking out over the snow? Maybe the Iditarod Arch in the background?
    Gee, we hope Siber gets back soon – we want his input for sure.

  22. B.Stover
    10:58 am on April 22nd, 2011

    I don’t think Whitey-Lance’s pack mushing in the distance would make the “scene” too busy.

    Rio: I have no idea about downloading PDFs but I’m sure Liz does.

    Liz: We probably need more of an explanation as to what you have in mind.

    I didn’t recognize the Herbals without their costumes. They look as if they are very fluffy, and I am not referring to their fur.

    Love the patch concept! Love it, love it, love it!!! And I especially love the idea of dressing WL in his striped jacket! AND I love the idea of Chet and WL sitting on the snow. Maybe with the team racing by, across the tundra, visible in between their shoulders.

    Liz is the designer of Funny English…Errors and Insights which includes illustrations. It was compiled by Troy Simpson. It is a published book, published by the National Library of Australia. She sent it to me last year and I’ve quoted several items from it on Chet’s blog: “Shakespeare was a great writer, only he used too many familiar quotations.”

    11:16 am on April 22nd, 2011

    Dishlicker!… We could put the book out there as a Bonus Item for anyone who visits the site during the Silent Auction, I guess….sniff! …It might become a tad complicated to take orders and then someone would have to print the book and mail it off ….grunt!….All too much work for the likes of Me…wuffle!

  27. B.Stover
    11:20 am on April 22nd, 2011

    Let’s wait and see what Liz has in mind.

    Google’s icon for Earth Day is interesting.

  28. Wolfie
    11:39 am on April 22nd, 2011

    I wonder if we could use the patch image as the cover of the cookbook? And I wonder if Rebecca would want to bundle it, along with the hoodies and the sweatshirts.

    For example, the calendar sells for $50. Let’s say the patch sells for $10. (Random number that I just made up!) But if someone were to buy both the calendar and the patch, they would pay $57 for both. I am pretty cheap, um frugal, and speaking for myself, I would be more likely to make the purchase if I thought I was getting a bargain.

    Just some thoughts.

  29. Wolfie
    11:44 am on April 22nd, 2011

    I wonder if Snowhook has a logo. I haven’t seen one yet, but the patch image might work, minus Chet. I’m not sure how or if that could work.

    Melanie, are you decorating Easter eggs for the pack again? I remember being amazed that the pack ate Easter eggs, shell and all. I wouldn’t do that. I make moom peel mine first.

  30. Mollypop
    11:45 am on April 22nd, 2011

    If Liz doesn’t have a way to pay for downloading the PDF, we could email the PDF to the buyer.

  31. B.Stover
    11:56 am on April 22nd, 2011

    Mollypop: I knew there would be a way. How is your iPad?

    12:11 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    Hey! Basil & Sage, Very nice pictures!

    What’s with all of the computer problems? Here too. Although we use IE-9, the speed is very slow lately. Probably need to get rid of some “stuff”.

    B. You remembered it’s Earth Day! Color me Green 365 days a year.

    Security issues: Couldn’t each of us set up a separate email account using our Plunderer idenity for the sole purpose of communication with the rest of the Pack? (ie:, which could be posted at the email address Rio has already set up. This way security would not be an issue (as in Lurkers of an unscrupulous sort) and we could move about freely without revealing our actual email address. Is this an option – what do you all think?

    Rio: I like the dishlicker email address for use as a group. Thank you for setting it up. Actually, I got my idea from you.

    Thank Dog! The deadlines have been extended. We are chasing our tails here trying to keep up with all that’s going on!

  33. Barb & Maggie
    12:11 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    We are busy this morning, will go to that dishlicker’s email address later, but really don’t understand why everyone doesn’t just email recipes to our regular address. Doesn’t everyone who wants it have it? And if I go to that email address, how in the world do I down load someone elses email from it? You guys are making this way too complicated for me, and it is making me very grumpy!!!

  34. Basil and Sage
    12:46 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    Clarification – when we said too “busy” for the patch, we were thinking of the embroidery values for creating the patch. If you try to get too much detail in its gets very complicated in the manufacture of the patch – of course we are just assuming that you are talking about an embroidered patch…if it was a photographic image, of course you can get in as much detail as you want. Especially with Melanie’s photoshop wizardry.

  35. Basil and Sage
    1:02 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    MollyPop – thank you for that link and info on sugar/fibromyalgia. Mama has been so exhausted she forgot to mention it last night.
    Since you make the cheesecake, we assume that milk sugars don’t bother you?

  36. BearSpiritDog
    1:09 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    Barb: I don’t have your email address. I don’t mean to make this complicated, but thought security might be an issue for some. We are trying to juggle 3 projects here – Don’t want to drop the ball on any one of them.

    Brain Freese! Think I need some more coffee! (or sleep)

  37. Riö - The Evil Pug
    1:12 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    Simple!… It’s not complicated to use the email address….snort!…Just log on using the password I posted yesterday afternoon….sniff!….If you want to put your Recipes out there just type them up and then mail it to the address. …grunt!… Barb can easily open any of the emails out there and collect the Recipes….snort!

  38. Gus and BooBear
    1:31 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    We love both ideas for the Snowhook patch. Really like that Admin suggested the back of Chets head…that ties to the books wonderfully. Maybe one of the artistic of the blog could do a preliminary one both ways…1 with just Chet looking at the team mushing and 1with Chet and Whitey side be side. Then we can get an idea of the busyness of the pic.

    Barb, we don’t have your email address but don’t mind using the dishlickers one Rio set up. Just don’t know how to safely get yours.

    Has any one ever tried to get cats to pose by an empty food dish? Great idea but we probably won’t cooperate.

    By the way, we aren’t implying that all Lurkers are Internet thiefs. But who knows where the thieves are hiding!

    For those who don’t have Barb’s address Melanie has it and can give it to you if you send her an email message.

  41. BearSpiritDog
    1:59 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    Patch! What about using Admin’s idea – one with just Chet looking down on the racing Snowhook team for the patch, with Whitey-Lance as lead dog (even though he’s not) just for display purposes? Then another version with both Chet & Whitey for the cookbook cover. We think it should be only Chet looking down on the racing team as Whitey is in the race. Just tossing out ideas here.

  42. BearSpiritDog
    2:11 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    Melanie & B: Thank you!

    I like Rio’s dishlicker@ It can also be a go-to place for all of our project information. I, for one, am having trouble keeping track of all the details and my computer skills are less than desired.

  43. BearSpiritDog
    2:25 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    Sorry, Wolfie! The 2 patch idea was yours. Just thinking of adding Whitey-Lance as a lead dog for the one.

  44. Riö - The Evil Pug
    3:51 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    Address!…It is …snort!…Don’t forget the ‘s’….sniff!…Someone else already had ‘dishlicker’…heh!

    3:56 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    Oh, I must be really DUMB! I go to the dishlickers email, and all I get is a regular email screen, like I am going to send someting, with cc and bcc and subject below the send to bar. How do you log on to an email using a password? There is no place for a “Password “. Makes NO SENSE!

  46. B.Stover
    4:10 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    Dislickers did the same thing to me–it takes me to a “new message” that I’m supposed to write and it’s addressed to dishlicker. There is no place for a password. If I sent a message wouldn’t it be using my regular email account?

  47. Siber-H
    4:19 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    I using another computer that isn’t mine and that is a piece of junk. We are still waiting on ours to get out of the repair place…part of my problem is my internet server. Our guy is working on the problem.

    I may be able to mush across the tundra with the best of them, but I don’t have an artistic toenail in my body. I very much like the design for the patch you guys are working out.

    For the record once again, I did not reject the Borozi’s advances. She dumped me.
    It would sure be nice if Wolfie could go to the wedding with her because I don’t like that kind of stuff.

    Rio, I’ll be watching the Rockies game. Go Rockies!

  48. B.Stover
    4:19 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    Barb: Could you please go to my blog and let me know if my email address shows? I’m signed into the blog and I want to see if that is what is necessary to show my email address.

  49. B.Stover

    4:28 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    We see the as a community email address we all can use. Rio has given us the password. It is ours to use as we see fit.

    4:29 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    Thanks Stover…I don’t know how much I can actually be around until I get my own computer back, but I am at least trying to keep up by reading the blog.

  52. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:30 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    Email!…. I thought everyone knew how to use Email….snort!….Apparently, I was wrong…yeesh!
    1. It is a Yahoo account.
    2. Don’t click on the address…grump!
    3. Go to
    4. Login as “dishlickers” then the password.
    5. Look! Now you can read the emails out there. Wow!
    6.If you want to share something with the group write up an email and be sure to put the dishlickers address in the Send to field.

    4:36 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    Bee, Did not see your email address on your blog.

    Rio, I never did that with email. Just wrote and received my own emails. See, we didn’t know how to use it after all!

  54. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:40 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    Yeah!…There’s alot of things I’m learning about you!…grunt!

  55. B.Stover
    4:47 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    No need to get riled Rio. Some of us don’t know technology that well. It is nice to have it explained thoroughly. I’ll try it now that I know what I’m supposed to do.

    Barb: Thanks. Google is protecting my email address which is nice to know.

  56. BearSpiritDog
    4:48 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    I agree with Rio. The dishlickers email address is very simple to use. Just think of it as your own email address and proceed accordingly.

  57. Wolfie
    5:10 pm on April 22nd, 2011

  59. Barb & Maggie
    5:46 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    Ok Rio, I am still not getting there and it is frustrating the frickin hell out of me. I did what you said – That thake me to my regular Yahoo page, with FB, Mail, etc. on the left. I tried putting dishlickers under web search and it take me to a page that says Riotheevilpug likes dishlickers. Where do you put your pass word?

  60. B.Stover
    6:00 pm on April 22nd, 2011

  62. B.Stover
    6:04 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    I just sent an email on the yahoo site. You send emails to My test worked.

  63. Barb & Maggie
    6:11 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    I figured out what I was doing – you didn’t tell me I had to sign out first, and then reenter all the Dishlicker info. When I click on email, it take me to my regular email, because I am always signed on as Barb. Yahoo is where my own email is. I had to completely sign off as me, then resign on as Dishlicker. Next time I went back, it says Hi Dish. So every time I want to check it, I have to sign off my own email and resign on.

  64. LizF
    6:12 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    How’s it going now with the email, is everyone there?

    Re the publishing of the book – I like Mollypop’s idea. The tech side of paying for a PDF isn’t my specialty but i can ask the guys at work.

    I’m a graphic designer and I work for a book publisher, so I know how complicated it can get, plus we’d have to pay up front for printing and delivery, then someone has to be the organiser of receiving orders and posting them out. PDF is more desirable.

    Maybe there’s a way that if people make a donation to Snowhook e.g $20 and under (pulling figures out of the air) they get sent a cookbook…

  65. LizF

    Ha! that’s funny. My browser doesn’t support Yahoo beta! sigh. I’ll try firefox.

  66. Siber-H
    6:24 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    I want to add that I like Admin’s description of the design of the patch.

    I am not into dealing with the tech skills involved with the cookbook. I have had it up to my pointed ears with technology right now. My server has managed to lose my emails and my address book. This is almost funny because my computer guy is calling them and trying to make them give them back. I will buy the cookbook if it goes up for sale. I don’t think it will work to try to sell the cookbook with the calendar because some of us have already ordered the calendar.

    I don’t know how to cook anything but Siberian Chicken or shaken bunny stew anyway. Mom just told me to keep my mouth shut about goat cooked over a campfire.

    6:54 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    For those who don’t have Barb’s address and cannot use the dishlicker site, please feel free to submit your recipes on the comment section of my blog. (Just click my name here on Chet’s blog.) I receive an email message any time a comment is submitted. I will copy and paste the recipes into an email message and send them to Barb.

    Good evening to all of Plunderers. Ve vish to clarify position ve haf made. Ve vere planning to make bid on date vith Siber. Ve thought this vould be good vay to support the Snowhook.
    However, ve vere forced to vithdraw bid vhen a certain Pug who shall be nameless, threw himself at Natasha, begging and screaming that he could not live vithout her. He begged Natasha to not date the handsome Siber – to return his affection instead.
    Natasha vas afraid that certain Pug vould do himself harm, so ve vithdrew bid.
    Ve vould be honored to be escorted to big vedding by Volfie – Volfie is tall, handsome doggie who vill not disgrace himself in front of royal pipples.
    Ve also think that maybe Siber is little bit playboy. Natasha’s heart is not toy to be shaken and buried. Volfie vould never do such things.
    As for Pug….is very cute, but ve think that if baseball game happened to break out in middle of mission, Pug vould be too distracted. Natasha is all about business – spying is very serious business. No baseball toys in spying.

    Basil and Sage – the fibro diet was put together by Dr. St. Amand over many years using data from patients histories. The purpose is to alleviate the “fibroglycemia” that can make problems for some people. Mom didn’t want to give up caffeine so she never went on the diet even though she had those problems. Mom was happy just being so free of the fibro pain that she thought she was okay. But a few months ago Mom started the diet and feels even better! Dr. St. Amand is amazing. You can follow his protocol right from his web site and he’s not selling anything.

    Mom is available for any questions because we hate to see anyone suffer needlessly.

    Will catch up tomorrow, whew, what a day.

    Have done a practice video of YSAS doing his double fried tofu. Snicker.
    Not going to use it on his website, but he said I could trim it and put it up on my youtube. (Just for you Riö!)

    Not sure when I’ll get it done. So TTFN

    Liz!….If we can get the Cookbook up on Snowhooks blog by the end of June this means we will have plenty of time to work on our Auction Items…heh!…Because Rebecca has been gone all week, she has not had a say about the book being on her blog….grunt!…Maybe she will check in tomorrow, or I will contact her and ask her about that…heh!…We are sort of assuming this will be alright with her, it may not be after all…sniff! ….All this plotting may be for naught!

    We don’t have Jimmy John’s here…drat it. Everytime I see that commercial during a Rockie’s game, I want a sandwich from them. Maybe they can ship overnight express.

    Borzoi, lads don’t come any nicer than Wolfie. You have chosen well.

    I have to admit that I was impressed with the play the Marlins pitcher made when the ball hit him on the leg, he picked it up, and ran to first base. Ok, I am through being a good sport…no hitter…bah humbug

  85. BearSpiritDog

    Why do I feel as if I have a big x on my forehead?

  88. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:39 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    At last – the Kats are asleep…
    To go back to the beginning of the day – Gus and BooBear – it would not be hard to get a picture of Basil sitting by his empty dish. Heck that’s what he does most of the time. He sits next to his dish, looking pitiful, and meowing when anyone notices him. Mama calls him the Kibble Hustler.
    Siber, Rio and Wolfie – sounds like you all have your paws full. Good luck at the wedding. tee hee.

    And Rio – what the heck is a Jimmy Johns?

  96. Riö - The Evil Pug

    Tupper!…. It’s a franchise here that sells sandwiches. Their thing is they Deliver and Quick! Like the second you call, you got your sandwich!…heh!…They have some really cute commercials on during the Rockies games….sniff!…My friend finally broke down and tried them, now we are both big Fans of Jimmy Johns…heh!

    Wedding!….I believe it is Next Friday!….sniff! …In England. At a time yet unknown to me…snort! ….We will be watching this it this time because of Natasha and Wolfie on their special date…yeep!yeep!

  101. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:59 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    Natsha!….So you are “Using” Wolfie for your own devious undercover plans at the Wedding….grump!…Wolfie, as Commander, I would advise against going with Natsha to this affair….sniff!…You could be implicated in a web of deception created by this conspirator Natasha….grunt! …She could implicate you in whatever she has in store…wheeze! ….Just say “No” to the Nat…snort!

  104. Barb & Maggie

    11:38 pm on April 22nd, 2011

    Wolfie: I would absolutely be watching the wedding but…I’m going to be traveling and at the mercy of others and their plans. I am packing now.
    Natasha: My hat goes off to you!
    Sam: You should go to the wedding because you are a princess and also you could keep an eye on that Natasha.
    I am racking my brain for something I could auction off but am coming up with nothing.
