    We have lots of activities for the kids...plenty of stuff to eat, drink, buy and see...so please help spread the word to family, friends and co-workers to come visit us in Westport on the 26th and 27th.

  3. .....

    I guess what's "right" and what's "wrong" is all in what you're used to.

    And what's "good" and what's "bad" is all a matter of personal taste.

    We all get to do it however we like.  And that makes for a pretty grand ol' world, I think.

    Bingo. That's what I have gleaned over my years of visiting Ecuador, another big ceviche country. Tomato or even catsup in the sierras. None on the coast. There are no hard and fast rules, other than the requisite citrus, even if the seafood is first cooked with heat.

  4. On the weekend of October 24th to the 26th the Sayville Chamber of Commerce will be hosting the Battle of the BBQ Brethren as part of their annual Sayville Fall Festival.

    This KCBS sanctioned event is a NY State Championship.

    Come down and enjoy live bands, demonstrations, lectures, great food from our BBQ vendors and the heat of competition.

    The cook-off will include Chili on Friday after set-up, Grilling and Kids Q on Saturday and BBQ on Sunday.

    The Sayville Chamber of Commerce will be aided in the BBQ aspects of their Fall Festival by members of the BBQ Brethren.

    The Brethren will be dedicating two of their on-site locations to Breast Cancer Help, Inc., a Long Island charity dedicated to eradicating the scourge of breast cancer.

  5. As are lots of rums. Trying to think about cocktails here, as per the request.

    Which reminds me that you could bring one bottle that has your liquors premeasured. (Not citrus, of course; don't want that oxidizing.) Manhattans, Negronis, Martinis... sky's the limit.

    mmmmm..... Warm Martinis out of a bottle.

  6. Ronzoni's Healthy Harvest, with its "whole wheat blend," is one of the best of the bunch, IMHO.

    Blech, that is a sad state of affairs. I can't stand that one! If that's the best, it's a good thing I didn't try too many others! :shock: Do you like it, or just tolerate it? Maybe our tastes just differ...

    At my age, it's
