I was watching the weather news on MSNBC, trying hard to control the laughter. One of their reporters was out with a ruler measuring the one inch that it had snowed since he'd started standing around reporting on what looked to me to be a very minor storm. I know that DC area doesn't get much snow, and that they don't have a lot of snow removal equipment to deal with it effectively. But still, I couln't help but notice they're from the network sometimes prides itself on belitting Sarah Palin. Having lived a town or two up the highway from Palin in the backwoods of Alaska for about a quarter of my life, I'd have to assume Palin is one of the old-timey Alaskans that doesn't need a ruler to estimate an inch of snow.

Back when I lived in Alaska and they didn't have an Olive Garden in the state I'd stop in at that national chain while I was on vacation. But, other than that excpetion, almost every other dining choice I've made when I travel was to look for diners, drive-ins and dives. I like trying out restaurants with local charm and recipes I'm not likely to find at home.
I haven't bought this book yet, but I'm seriously thinking about it.
