mlenkinhoker, I just saw your reply. Here's a quick catch-up on some of the places you mentioned.

Elite is still going strong, as is the Mayflower down town.

Primo's and Pasquale's on State are gone. Primo's is on Lakeland and another on Lake Harbor. Pasquale's is no where to be found (how sad. I loved it)

The Gyro place near Belhaven/Millsaps is Keifers. Ate there the other day. I don't think it has changed a bit. I live in Belhaven, so it is a neighborhood eatery for me.

Recovery Room is now a Lenny's Subs. Speaking of old dives, do you remember the Dutch Bar? Don't have to admit that you do! We all slipped by there once in a while. Well, it's gone, too.

Crechele's is better than ever. Scrooges has moved north on Ridgewood and Old Tyme Deli is a yuppie restaurant called Juleps.

Holler if you get back down.

I am from Illinois. I work part time 3 days a week. And I just started to post on the forums.

There hasn't been a post yet on Chuck E. Cheese's, but I posted about the beginnings of it on the forum for Roadfood.com

I found this site several months ago and really like it. I live in the Mississippi Delta and although I love southern cooking, I'm always looking for new and diverse recipes and cooking methods. I also find it interesting to read what others have to say about the restaurants I've visited.

Glad to be here.

Hi all, welcome. Stephanie, a little west and you would be in Georgia. Doesn't the Florida BBQ Association sponser a contest in Callahan?

Baileysoriginal, Friars Point... the first teaching job I ever had was there... I was living in Jonestown at the time!

You have some good food up there. I'm thinking of Kathryn's and Uncle Henry's.

How long have you been there? Do you remember Conway's?

Although I don't actually live at Friars Point, (I work there), I am familiar with Kathryn's and Uncle Henry's on Moon Lake. I don't know about Conway's - please fill me in ---

Hi Marlene. If you don't mind my asking, where in the UK do you live? The reason I ask is because I have relatives who live in Scotland. I'm pretty sure they live in Kirkcaldy or just around that area. I also have always wanted to travel to the UK (huge football fan) and now that I am in college I am looking at doing a semester abroad in the UK!

I live in West Yorkshire,which is about a 2 hour drive from the Scottish border.Can`t say that I have visited Kirkcaldy,but it`s not that far from Edinburgh,and I have travelled in that area.Scotland is a beautiful country,and has stunning scenery.Unfortunately a lot of tourists never make it out of London,which is a shame,as the UK is very diverse in lots of ways,and our capital city isn`t typical of the whole country.Good luck with your studies,and thanks for the reply.Marlene.

We went to London last May followed by a drive through the southern coastal towns of Wales, but the next time we go back our 'country' leg is going to be taking the night train to Edinburgh and doing Scotland. We can't wait. Welcome y'all!

Thank you Nancy,it`s always nice to feel welcome.Glad to hear that you saw more than London.Having had a Welsh father I`m rather biased about Wales,it`s beautiful.If you are coming north don`t forget the Yorkshire dales and the Lake District,you certainly won`t be sorry.

It was actually kinda hilarious, we stayed at a few farm-type B&Bs, and this one old coot proprietor asked us where we were going in Wales (we did Mumbles, Tenby, a couple other coastal towns and then came in to the Brecon Beacons with a trip to the national arboretum) and we asked what we should include, and he was all, you need to go back to England. What did he say, something about an Irishman being a Welshman who could swim. He was a nut. We didn't take his advice; we loved Wales. Definitely looking forward to going back to the UK.

I was cleaning out some stuff and found the address. It was Fferm Coedhirion in Llanddarog, Carmarthen, South Wales. The guy who runs it is a hilarious nut.

My name is Eric and I live in Georgetown Texas. I am a rabid BBQ'er and love all types of Q. Haven't had any bad yet, just some better than others. My job affords me the opportunity to travel to many places bothin the US and the UK. Ihave become an avid lover of the food in the UK. I spend most of my time in Cornwall in and around Plymouth and I dearly love the area and it's people. Can't get a good Cornish Pasty in Texas. My travels have taken me to Dunoon Scotland, Faslene, actually Helensbourough and it's all good.

Hi Eric,it`s so nice to hear someone compliment food in the UK.We are used to it being made fun of particularly by people from a neighbouring country.We have lots of regional dishes,Cornish Pasties being one of them.Yorkshire`s most well known one is Yorkshire Pudding,and when we visited Salt Lake City it was on the menu in our hotel.So of course,out of curiosity we had to try it.Big mistake,it was uneatable.When the waitress came to clear the plates she told us that everybody leaves the YP,so we told her we were from Yorkshire,and would willingly give the chef a demonstration in the art of YP making.She went off to tell him,but he never appeared.Did you have the Tatties and Neeps when you were in Scotland?Very tasty.

I had the honor of being invited to the Senior Rates Mess at the Submarine Base in Faslane for Robbie Burns night. I must tell you my first encounter with the haggis was a bit overwhelming but not wanting to embarass the colonials I got it down. Turned out to be not bad at all.
Once spent three months in Basingstoke working in Camberly and the chef at the hotel was awesome. He introduced me to jellied eel and a variety of dishes. I have eaten everything from Bubble and Squeek to Steak and Kidney pie.and even haave a soft spot for mushie peas.
I was delighted to travel to St Augustine Fla recently and discovered the Prince of Wales Pub. The entire menu was British. I had a ploughmans and I swear it was authentic.

My one disappointment in the UK was a "mexican"place in Portsmouth on the Solent, but why am I surprised. Still I have had many great culinary experiences. I long for real pate, good smoked salmon lincolnshire sausages, black pudding and a good gammon steak.

Well Eric,you are making me salivate with talk about all that lovely food.However I will give the steak and kidney a miss,well the kidney anyway.AKA kate and sidney or snake and pygmy.Also will pass on jellied eels,it`s not the eels,but the jelly,YUK.A sort of variation of mushy peas is pease pudding which originates around Newcastle.It`s delicious spread in a ham sandwich.I cooked gammon with fried egg and new potatoes for my husband and sons` evening meal tonight,delicious!I`ve never been to a Burns` night,but have seen the food piped in on New Years`Eve.Now I`m off to raid the `fridge.

To my good fortune, my parents emigrated from Bavaria when I was very young and we settled in a working class neighborhood on the north side of Chicago. We were surrounded by other etnic immigrants and being thus clustered, the children all went to one or two schools throughout their childhood years. Making freinds exposed us to other cultures and their foods. I fear nothing. I have eaten Italian, Jewish, Greek, Polish, Puerto Rican, Mexican, Lithuanian, Phillipino,Vietnamese and none of it is distasteful. Different and yet similar. I got to try some really good Tanduri in a litttle town in Middlesex called Ruislip. It's all good. My good fortune of spending time in the Navy has allowed me to go to some of these countries and actually taste the real origins. So, anyone who wants good BBQ come to Austin and I will escort you on what we call the BBQ Trail here in the Hill Country. I don't know if it's ethnic but it's Texan.

Bailysoriginal, this sounds a bit dull after the reports from overseas, but Conways was an awful dive owned by Conway Twitty. Occasionally, he would show up and maybe even perform.

Mostly, it was a pretty rough night spot on Moon Lake. Fights were not unusual, but we all went there anyway. This was in late sixties/early seventies.

Wasn't there also another dive on Moon Lake during that era that was called Oscar's, I think?
I've heard it was pretty tough, too, especially on Sundays when the crowds from Arkansas would cross the river to go there because you couldn't purchase liquor in Arkansas on Sunday.

I don't tink I should admit to having ever been to Oscar's. The stories you heard are probably all true.

My husband (before I knew him) used to go there when he was living & working at Moon Lake.

The last time I was up that way, Moon Lake seeemed to be reviving. More houses, nicer week end places etc. I hope that continues.

Dearfolk,
I'm hardly new, but I'll do an intro anyway because I've been gone for awhile.
My poster name is Ort. Carlton, which is an abbr. of my really real name, William Orten Carlton. I live in charming Athens, Georgia, which has the worst timed traffic lights in the world.
In my offline moments, I buy and sell used books, necessitating trips to the Atlanta area and other wheres to do scouting and selling.
Right now I'm sitting here at the University Of Georgia Library (I refuse to keep an online computer at home: it's a distraction), where food is not allowed, eating my invisible Una Merkel Memorial Tangerine. (She was born in 1903 and died in 1986, by the way.)
My favorite food is livermush and my favorite beer is The Citizens' Preposterously Bitter Ale (which was a homebrew recipe; someday I intend to brew it again and enter it in a homebrew competition as an English Bitter).
I can walk almost exactly like a penguin upon demand. I can also do The Hop Wilson Memorial Walk, which is too elaborate to explain here. I can also imitate telephone ringing signals from such cities as Roanoke, Alabama.
Now I have to disappear from here and check my e-mail... 23 skiddoo, folksies.
