Sher,
Is that really a chestnut? Very interesting.

Please... tell me that it's not edible. It looks positively gross and I thought that it was a underbelly of a dead cockroach when I first saw it! :p

Hello Sher!!

Glad to be here again!

What is that? It looks to me like a viking version of a paramecium - that microscopic organism we used to study and draw in Biology class back in High School! But it's a chestnut shell huh?

I have a question...why do you think they named it chestnut?

By the way, I'm sorry for the long delay in acknowledging the Award you gave me. I missed that post and I saw it only yesterday. Thank you very much for including me in your list and the very generous description you provided. I am honored by it.

Hope you have a good week dear friend. Regards to your partner too. :-) --Durano, done!

Hey hey Durano!!
Yeah.. scary looking shell hur?
I've read somewhere that only the female trees produce these shells and nuts.

I'll have a go at the origin of the name.. probably they are telling you that there is hidden treasure within the hard shell and outer covering (which is referred to as the "Chest")! Hope I'm right! :P
