    That's cool.

    It seems I can get from Bb to F between lipping and the hand in the conch techniques, possibly more if I use enharmonics, but I get the feeling that I am getting the full harmonic series so there will be a gap to the octave, though it seems fairly amenable to false tones, so maybe there is a fifth in there.

    Mine wasn't all that cleaned or polished, maybe a little. I still had to soak it to get the smell out of it, and give it a little scrubbing. The outside is still flaking off a little, it seems to have some sort of cover on it. There was a piece of the animal left on there where it attached, which I cut off before I plugged the hole to get the meat.

    I think the term queen denotes the species not the gender(Like king crab). Only six per foreigner. Bahamian Conch Salad Recipe or Scungilli salad. Information on the Queen Conch and Conch Pearls from Sandy Estabrook's Guide to the Abacos Bahamas.

    No worries, Ted, I didn't get KT's pun either. Yours, however, was first class!
    It's not hard for something to go over my head, mind you. :oops:

    Not to flounder around now, lets get right to the issue. If I could be more pacific, I would say a tidal wave of corniness beginning to swell up around here, and I'd like a lot more of it, and that's no fluke. Just for the halibut, let's just start with more puns again, shall we? :grouphug::thumbsup::laughwave:

    I'm just urchin to get started. I will perch on my bed and sea what I can come up with. Manta rays of the sun were no where to be found. Just rain all day long.
    I was so eel, that I fell asleep for 3 hours.
