Aiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeee......to paraphrase Calvin (of the late lamented Calvin and Hobbs daily cartoon)
I post a couple of messages and now I'm on the hook to furnish steamed crabs for 30 or 40 hungry roadfooders!!!! Note to self....watch what you say.
Being a poor boy I can't afford to do that but again if I hit that ever elusive lotto it's go time!
At least the Mayor offered to pour the beer......if not buy it.
Several messages here since I don't get to post as much as I would like:
Totally changing the topic....and drifting back in time, and (possibly due to age/alcohol induced dementia) mind, I remember 25 years agoI used to buy crabs on the north side of Baltimore for $3 a dozen. And these were huge crabs. I used to keep the shell of the largest one and measure it at the end of the feast. Often it would measure over 9" point to point. No lie. Don't know why I brought this up, it just seemed necessary....and of course I've had some wine.
I also saw the Mayor post on the top of this page (4) and state that he didn't know about the effects of clear glass on the "smoothing" of the contents of booze. As a home brewer I have some small knowledge of this subject. Clear glass is fine as long as the subject(the bottle not the drinker) is out of the light. Ultraviolet is harsh on potent potables...(booze). Green glass is no better. Brown glass on the other hand blocks the rays from damaging the delicate contents of the libation. Thus keep your drinks out of sunlight or pretty much any direct light if it's not in a brown bottle. And even if it is shade is still best.
I'd like to take this time to say that this is probably the best forum I've ever found, and I've been to a few. I have interests in the areas of comics, beer, motorcycles, guns, physics (if you haven't then you should read "A brief History of Time" by Stephen Hawking...good stuff), science fiction, movies, and of course food. Yet in none of the forums I've visited regarding these subjects have I found people as nice as you all, or y'all where I come from. And I mean that. Thanks.
I seem to be rambling here so I'll shut up now, unless I think of something that is incredibly important to share.
Talk atcha later,
