Were going to be filmed by the BBC

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!

    Yep, An Italian Count and Countess, very nice people, and incredibly generous, left me a 599 Ferrari as a tip. I hope they came back. They're headed to DC to lead the Cherry Blosspm Parade!

    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!"

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

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