'Tis a puzzlement! Thanks for the info. It almost seems to make some sort of sense.

I would not have been allowed that name if it were already taken.

Just a heads up but that thread about retirees and their Medicare plans got moved to the Medicare Forum up in Health and Wellness. There are questions waiting to be answered that were addressed to people here. (I didn't move the thread, I wish it could have stayed here.) At least we have a clickable link to that forum.

My biggest nightmare as a kid was when my mother, a poor cook, made corned beef. I tried to work OT at the library when I knew she was making it so I could come home late and make a quick supper like cereal. As for boiled cabbage, no way.

Back on the subject of restaurants ...

This past weekend I was in the "Pennsylvania Dutch Region" (aka Amish Region) in Lebanon and Lancaster Counties. It was hot, but the countryside was beautiful. Yes, as always I saw of lot of the "Plain Folk" in their horse and buggies.

Now just east of the city of Lancaster has a huge Discount Outlet Shopping district with several large outdoor outlet malls, surrounded by hundreds of acres of parking, shuttle buses, stand alone stores and so on. Parking was difficult ... hundreds of cars circling around looking for parking spaces, sores of families carrying large shopping bags ...

You would think they were giving away stuff free!

An uninformed foreign visitor would surmise the economy was booming with so much frantic shopping going on.

What both amazed and annoyed me was as early as 5:30 PM the crowds forming lines - outside in the heat! - to get into mediocre mega chain restaurants: Appleby's, Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Outback, Carrabba's, California Pizza Grill, Texas Roadhouse, Bonefish Grill, etc. These places are not cheap, and are quite frankly MEDIOCRE! They must be unaware that there are some good unpretentious and reasonably priced Amish owned restaurants in the area where the food is both plentiful and great. Sometimes they appear like ordinary diners. Shoo-Fly Pie, anyone?

You've struck one of my pet peeves. Those junky, overpriced boring chains. The only one I ever bothered with was Applebee's and that was a long time ago. There are so many good places that have real food and they are independently owned. We need to support them or these chain places will take over.

Like walmart took over all across the country? Yup, mom & pop restaurants will go by the wayside unless WE give them grades on the internet. Whatever vehicle you use, let people know about those places. You know it will spread like wild fires.

A new question, does anyone know recipes or drinks that includes Amaretto? I had a recipe that called for 2 Tbls but the liquor store only had a one liter bottle. I bought it because I remembered having it years ago. I'll do a search, but do want to know if there are any recipes my favorite people make.
Ooops, does this belong in food & drinks? If so, please move it. Thank you.

Drink Ingredients...
Amaretto
Ice


Jut when we thought it was safe to put the garbage out again, a bear bent a neighbor's chain link fence getting after theirs.

Anything and everything is appropriate in the Chat Thread. Now, had you started a new thread to ask this question with some B.S. comment about wanting to know how seniors drink Amaretto, then it possibly could have been moved.
