We've had our Bamix for 20 years and it's still going strong.
My favourite summer-time treat is to roughly chop a couple of ripe bananas then freeze overnight. Put into tall cup and blend to a cream with Bamix (chopper blade). Better than icecream, no additives.
even after many, many, many years and even MORE books later, I still distinctly remember the beginning of 'Sheepfarmer's Daughter'

regarding Collared Doves
This from an article in a California newspaper website
(vintage August 2006 if I'm decoding that part of the URL correctly):Eurasian collared doves are a nongame species in California, an invasive species that flies, has the appetite and habits of a rock dove (aka city pigeon), but actually tastes pretty good. That's according to hunters who, thinking the birds were huntable doves in recent years, shot them by mistake and ate them, not by mistake.
Dove hunting season opens Sept. 1, so what's going to happen to this invading dove that looks like a game bird, sounds like a game bird and tastes like one? What is the Department of Fish and Game to do with these Eurasian collared doves that are showing up more and more throughout the state?
Right now, nothing. Wink, wink.
“This is a case where biology is ahead of the law,” said Mike McBride, assistant chief of the California DFG's enforcement branch.
So you might want to check with your Local Game Warden.
Texas may have declared them to be Official Legal Game by now.

Re: regarding Collared Doves
They're an invasive alien species, and so listed. I have a wildlife management plan that includes a section for removing invasive alien species.
The trick will be getting them without getting any of the native doves they hang out with...as you report from California, the easiest way may be during dove season.
