Master Sergeant Jyri Laats (US Army Retired) passed away quietly in Palm Springs, California recently at the age of 95. A true warrior has entered Manala (Estonian for the great thereafter). Laats was born in independent Estonia in 1923 in Põlva, one of two brothers. His mother fled Estonia in  1944 and reached the west; she died in Australia. His brother fell in combat against the Communists.

Freezing the entire bag of astel/paju (sea buckthorn) berries as they had been purchased (haljal oksal, "on the leafy branch"), resulted in the bright orange C-vitamiin rich marjad literally popping off their asteldega (thorny) branches, as opposed to becoming lömastatud (smushed). Buying them in this puhastamata "uncleaned" state meant a better price. 5 € for a 1 kilogram bag. And cutting the bushes back encourages them even more. They're a tough lot – kanged.
