what is a "corncrake"? North and South of the River

Does anyone know what a corncrake is,
or would anyone like to take an educated guess?
A biscuit/cookie?sought after late at night when the serious munchies set in?
A pesky journalist?seeking out music stars late at night?

Schmeg asked a question about the song "north and south of the river". That motivated me to look in my new lovely lovely LOVELY book by Christy Moore. It has a page devoted to Christy's thoughts about the co-writing of that song and it also has an earlier draught written by Christy" Hands Across the Lough"
It is interesting to see how a song develops and can be polished. I'll type out that song and some quotes when it is not 2 hours before the year 2003 AD and I am not typing under the influence of applle ciderrrrrrrrr
show me the way to go home..............oh,
I am home night night.

seriously..what is a corncrake?
seriously....best wishes to all of you for the new year

"With Bono. Looking for corncrakes. 1999"

"Sing the song."

Ingredients:
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup white flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
2 cups milk
1 egg
2 Tbsp oil

Combine dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately. Stir the wet into the dry just until well blended. There will be lumps.

Cook on lightly oiled heated griddle until bubbles burst on top, and bottom is light brown. Turn and cook other side until browned. Serve with warm maple syrup, applesauce, or other favorite topping.

thank you skeek and the fabulous gheto

funny you should mention eggs, gheto.....but I think it deserves a thread of it's own.
**cass starts twitching**
I have to stay off that apple cider. I woke up at about 4 am to check on my hens ( *see Nature's Gift thread) and I thought I saw an angel.............it must have been New Year or lack of sleep or.............something. Certainly not lack of food.....ewwww i binged on chocolate last night ewwwwwwwwwwwww.
Thanks guys.....2003 looks good from here, so far.
It's a beautiful day. I've brokne my first NY resolution already...visit Interference less! I'll make another one right now....send some money to Elvis, asap.
