At 75, of bladder cancer.



Most know him from MASH, as do I, but I remember him most fondly as Cogsworth, just because Beauty and the Beast is one of my favourite fairy tales, and that particular Disney version was not terrible (unlike what they did to Little Mermaid)

Winter 2017-2018

Too early? Because it snowed overnight, enough to leave a thick coating on my car this morning. It'll melt by the afternoon, but there was still a fair bit on the ground at 10am.

Hollister “Holly” Moore, 69, a pioneering Philadelphia food writer, hot dog enthusiast, and lover of the city’s diners and hidden gems, died Monday, July 31, from complications from an infection.



Anyone here remember him from eG? I don't know if he posted here, as well. 

Amarillo TX, Las Cruces/Santa Fe/Taos NM

Any recent recommendations for any of these?


Amarillo will likely be for dinner on a Sunday and breakfast on a Monday, and perhaps some snacks (I have a couple of doughnut places on my list!). I'm not looking for fancy, but more tex-mex or texas-style barbeque. I wouldn't mind trying some chicken fried steak as my only experience with that dish was at Ponderosa Steakhouse in the mid-80s.


Las Cruces will be Monday dinner, and maybe lunch, then breakfast/lunch/dinner Tues and Wed. Nellie's Cafe comes up on a lot of lists, but I've already read that it's gone downhill. Anyone been there recently? Or have other suggestions? Mexican or southwestern cuisine is preferable, plus snacks. But we're open to anything, really.


In between Las Cruces and Santa Fe, we'll be stopping by Sparky's in Hatch, so we're covered there. But if there's anywhere else we should try for snacks for the road, I have no problem stopping by! 


Santa Fe - I'll be with Jaymes and we're meeting up with Verjuice, too, so I think I'll have plenty of suggestions to choose from, but if anyone has any others, I'd love to hear them!


Taos - We'll only be there a couple of days and we know nothing. Suggestions are very welcome!


I'd also welcome suggestions for stuff to buy other than chiles. Those are already on the list. Doesn't have to be restricted to food (turquoise is nice, too).
