Yesterday I sat and observed a squirrel consuming seeds from pine cones.
How long time did it on average, during 15 minutes, use per cone?

I think it is appropriate, to make this a little easier, to point out that the pine cones in question are not from Pinus Ponderosa, but from Pinus Sylvestris.
All you good people with stopwatches who have been scouring parks and forests for feeding squirrels, over the weekend, can now come home again and start guessing. :D :tpf:

I do wonder what kind of person decides it would be fun to time how quickly a squirrel manages to eat all the seeds from a pine cone. I mean, that would be like someone who spends part of their life carefully gluing back together corks from old port bottles which have fallen apart when being opened.

Indeed.
Nature is wonderful, so much is going on without us seeing it. Not everybody needs adrenalin kicks all the time.

I believe that entitles me to post the next question.

I recently visited South Africa. During my time there I tasted only one producer's fortified wine but purchased bottles from 4 others.

Name the producer I tasted and (at least) one of the producers whose wine I purchased.

Boplaas?

Is Google my friend?

I did indeed buy a bottle of Boplaas. I bought a bottle of the 2013 Cape Vintage Reserve. I also bought bottles from Allesverloren, Vergelegen and Overgaauw.

So which producer did I taste when I was in SA?
