Were going to be filmed by the BBC Fri, 04/1/11 1:03 PM (permalink)
Next wednesday or thursday a film crew and a reporter from the BBC will be here to film the place, interview me and some customers. This is the 150th anniversary of the battle of Gettysburg[july], and since we are so close to the Mason Dixon line they want an angle on the difference between northerners and southerers who come here. I got the call last night asking if I minded participating , yeah, sure I'd hate that kind of publicity. In any case all Roadfooders anywhere nearby are invited, you may get on British TV. I will post when I find the exact time and date.

        Sounds like fun Chewy! Just don't bring up the fact that the British built ships for the Confederates during the War!

                                          There's been a lot of discussion on here lately about Pasty's. Maybe you should whip them up a batch. Or ---feed them a meal that a Confederate Soldier would have eaten during the "War of Northern Agression!"

                                                Thanks one and all!
                                                Ancient One, I'm doing 16oz. Mason jars of Beefeaters, straight up, that should dull their appetites till we carry them out the door.

                                                  Change it to 16 oz. Bombay Sapphires and I might even fly out!

                                                    There's been a lot of discussion on here lately about Pasty's. Maybe you should whip them up a batch. Or ---feed them a meal that a Confederate Soldier would have eaten during the "War of Northern Agression!"

                                                    The only Pasty I'm familiar with was worn by Busty Russell!

                                                      You mean you never saw Georgia Southern at the Old Howard in Boston?

                                                        When I was a teenager I'm sure I tried to imagine her
                                                        Now I'm content thinking about Nigella Lawson
