Were going to be filmed by the BBC - Fri, 04/1/11 1:03 PM
0
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!"

And may the Saints forgive ya for invitin' in the British.

  You might think about making a sign saying your place is 'World Famous, as seen on the BBC'.  BBC America is one of the fastest growing networks at the moment, and their broadcasting does go worldwide.  Don't be surprised to see some Aussies walking in some day. 
  Many folks equate BBC with Ramsey or at least, quality food.  You never needed a re-tooling as your menu/ food  will speak for itself.    
  Speaking of the BBC, I love watching Top Gear...

What's the over / under on both:

 

Tom, by pure coincidence, sporting this outfit later this week?
 
And him also posting here later this week in a highly-affected British accent (a la Madonna as in "ello, Gov'nah!")?

Loved "The Two Fat Ladys". One of them, Jennifer Paterson, has gone to that Big Kitchen in the Sky. Besides eating all the non-nutritious but good food they cooked, she was a chain smoker and a boozer! Way to go girl!

In that case, just a heads-up: despite protests otherwise, he only needs to take your inseam measurement ONCE.

  Well?! How did it go? 

Really well, 1 take, about 15-20 minutes of me running my mouth to the veddy British interview lady's questions, my daughter got some face time on camera answering a question. They filmed all around the place. Who knows it may all end up on the cutting room floor...will air on the 12th or 13th, Will give a heads up as to the channel and time, they will also give me a link which I hope I can post!
One take Tom!
