The Lovely One is superstitious. I looked up what omens frogs bring and I was pleasantly surprised. Here is a gleaning of what I got from my friend Google:
- Frogs represent transformation of the positive kind
- a positive omen in all ways
- Whether you saw them, held them, heard them, or ate them, they signify happiness, success in your profession, and true friends
- Frogs represent good luck
- Frogs represent forward movement, since they cannot move backward
Things out of the ordinary fascinate me. One of those is weird search engine results that bring visitors to my blog. One of the enigmatic terms that brings visitors to the blog is "cabbage paw". The reason that this is interesting is that apparently there is no such thing, or record of such a thing on the internet, and yet people from all over the world google the term.
When you enter the term into Google, my blog comes up as the most relevant search. It is the story about the cat paws on the walls where they boost themselves up on the Beamer. I don't think that this is what they meant. I am intrigued when in all of the billions of pages on the internet, there is no information on a search term that comes to my blog from North America and Europe.
I decided to investigate. Unfortunately my prime investigative tool is Google, and Google has no information on it. My imagination ran wild. At first I thought that it was a veterinary complaint. An animal would get a disease of the paw, and the paw would deform into a cabbage shape. This would indeed be a rare complaint, and documented, but this was not the case.
I got my first inkling of what it might be, when I tried my favourite Google trick to enhance search results. I changed it from singular to plural. I googled "cabbage paws" and got two entries. One was a total loss, and the other was an expired web page. Although I couldn't access the page, it seemed to give a recipe for corned beef and rice stuffed into cabbage leaves, called "cabbage paws". This was presumably because they are shaped like an animal paw after stuffing.
This is the closest that I can get to solving the mystery of the Cabbage Paw. Anyone else with alternate theories or information is invited to leave a comment.
