@Melissa808 @Annoddah_Dave  Delicate Blossom...thanks, I don't recall that post.  I must have been too spiked at the time!

Delicate Blossom:  Neat stuff and looks like it is filling...I wonder what a "Middle Tea" service would be like?  Perhaps "spiked" hot tea or ice tea.

MC:  It takes talent to write and act to make a film successful.  It seems a lot of US films are so formulaic just to punch out some dough for the company.  Even the actors are really no more than merely prostituting themselves...slam bam thank you ma'am!  They need the dough just like the rest of us and lower their standards and price accordingly just to make it through the day.

Delicate Blossom:  You are usually quite good at including prices of dishes...is there a reason for not including them here?  Maybe the LASIK wasn't good enough to see the small print of a price on the menu.  LOL.  I'm with turkfontaine, some things are better deconstructed in our stomachs than before we put it in our mouths.

Delicate Blossom:  I think pix #15 should be captioned as "rack of lamb" vice "lamb chops" which is a different cut.  The next pix is really not how true rack lovers would want it done.  Agree that it should have more pink...but fuud does luuk guud.  Fuud Reminds One Life Is Cool.

MC:  Spot on!  It seems like many of the comic geniuses have such huge chains...some are self inflicted others of a more mental nature.  Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, Chris Farley, John Belushi, Rap Reiplinger, Flip Wilson, Jonathan Winters, etc.  all were on the edge of a more bedeviled world it seems.  But I do disagree on including Sandler, Carrey, and Ferrell in such august company, these guys are not even in the same league as Williams!

Chef Ed:  Sorry, I did not realize how debilitating your injury was, as I wondered why you were in the photo profession.  There is a saying that "Those who can, do, and those who can't, teach".  You your case it seems like you "can't" due to physical limitation more than anything but your passion and desire is still there.  I know you do work for Highway Inn trying to get back in the groove.  In more ways than one I guess, you still "knead the dough", so I say go for it.  I think with your experience, you will attract more than enough interns who can do the physical stuff for you and actualize your creativity.  Let us know what is happening and will come out to support you!

Delicate Blossom:  This marketing and PR gig is one of the "toughest" sales jobs around.  There are so many intangibles and many do not affect the bottom line of organizations.  The metrics are what one would call "squisshy" at best.  This is like selling air...one never really knows how much is enough.  Maybe that's why the award is an Anvil, cause you get so beat up trying and your head gets hard!

MC:  Sounds like a regular bag of popcorn.  I did see the Vegas version and I was in the very last row way up in heaven and enjoyed it.  Then again, the music was from my era so singing along was easy.  I would have been too embarrassed to be closer to the stage and try to sing along.  Too bad the movie did not meet expectations.  Went to see Rover and liked it although it takes patience to watch it.  Lots of symbolism to consider.

Chef Ed:  Enjoyed "Chef" although some parts of the story had lapses but it was generally even keeled.  I had recently dined at the Cuban restaurant downtown so it made the style of fuud in the film more recognizable.  The corn starch bit was funny...I was hoping that it would have ended getting all pasty and the shower scene thereafter.  The headliner stars were interesting only from the standpoint that the viewer could easily recognize them...but they were really not needed.  Except for Downey..his bit was something to behold.
