The Canadians have co-opted ham!

What exactly is back bacon? Me and my tribe are not exactly well versed in the ways of pork products. Suzy, at Toledo, spouted went out on this back bacon / ham rant a while ago and I just haven’t had time to relay it to you.

I’m back. Two weeks on the road is a damned long time. It proved to me that I was not meant to be a consultant flying from town to town like some sort of technological Johnny Appleseed. San Francisco gets hot in October… who knew. Orlando is always hot and muggy. Why exactly do people live in a malaria infested swap like Florida?

While in Orlando, I went to Universal Studio’s Halloween thing one night. The best thing about theme parks is the amazing amount of white trash you see. I mean, wow! Sociologists need to spend more time at these places.

How many of you like Puddin’ Pops? I certainly do. Apparently, they don’t make Puddin’ Pops any more. Just thought you might want to know.

Way cool bar flies

Last week, I had a really cool conversation with Pierre, owner and head chef at La Forchette. He came to this country and ended up cooking for Katherine Graham, owner of the Post. One of the folks he cooked for while at Ms. Graham’s was Warren Buffet. Apparently he eats, “Lamp chops, hamburgers, and peanuts.” He cooked for her for a while and then in 1978 he bought the restaurant for $20,000. Back then Adam’s Morgan hadn’t really rebuilt since the riots of 1968. He ended up cooking for President Clinton at Graham’s Martha’s Vineyard condo.
