Now, cheese grits are good! But they have to be prepared right. Other than that, grits are pretty tasteless, especially hominy ones. Big, fat corn pellets soaked in lye. Yechh!

And, yes, I'm from the "deep south" originally...I'm from Louisiana. I don't think I would ever give a newcomer (and that includes my Yankee friends!) grits as a welcome device. Start them out with something they can handle better. Grits is an acquired taste. I would hate to go to Scotland and have someone expect me to eat haggis!

Haggis is brilliant!! - just enjoy the taste and ignore the ingredients. The traditional accompaniments are mashed turnips and potato (oh and whisky )

What is cool about this particular note is that it was produced specially for the eclipse of 1999 and it is made of plastic, with see through coloured plastic bits for the planets, sun and moon. I mean how cool does currency get??

I love that note!! I have three of them at home. Last summer I studied in Europe with four Romanians and they all carried a couple of them around to show people. Looking through the 'plastic' holes is kind of like looking through 3-D glasses. Of course one of them said the notes were un-tearable (is that a word? the notes could not be torn) so that set off a 'race' to see who could tear one first (I won, found that there are tiny creases along the edge that if you start there it will tear very easily). I think they had to make them so funky looking 'cause otherwise they are totally worthless

It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear ignorant,

A lot of whiskey, I should imagine, Mouse! Hehe! I dunno...maybe if I got tanked enough, I'd be brave enough to try it. Well, I eat oysters in New Orleans, so I can't see what could be worse than that!

I am delighted to have started the whole cooking discussion ! I more than half expected to get flamed by you British guys.

I also keep money from every part of the world I have been able to put my hands on since I was a child, I have given my full collection to my kid now - the last coin that had me laughing was the Australian dollar given to him by Yorick : he keeps grumbling about people thinking that there are kangaroos hopping everywhere in Australia, but guess what is on the Australian dollar ?

The world is my oyster !
And now I have the knives to open it ...

Chacun a son gout - personally I don't go a lot on shellfish. I suppose it is all down to a trawlerman telling me when I was a kid that the biggest, juciest prawns were found near sewage outflows.......
