the people who flock to dine at the restaurant on account of its reputation/stars are getting their money's worth because what they are after is a piece of the reputation/stars and nothing else. their money is not wasted. -- mongo jones, 11/5/2014

Yes, I made a reference to him out of the blue and he responded out of the blue.
Didn't he just post here a couple of days ago?
Very sorry to hear this - condolences to his family, friends and dining cohorts.
He called me a wag. I told him that I had missed him.

Tony, My "bruvver"
I regret it now, which is easy with hindsight, but I am comforted by the thought that, if I had ever got over my own stupidity and contacted him, he would have assumed that same East End Jewish accent and said ď no bovver, letís go and have dinnerĒ and that would have been it. Thatís the kind of man he was. Although, I did not always think I was his friend, I am pretty sure he always thought I was his.
I love that.

"Gay people exist. There's nothing we can do in public policy that makes more of us exist, or less of us exist. And you guys have been arguing for a generation that public policy ought to essentially demean gay people as a way of expressing disapproval of the fact that we exist, but you don't make any less of us exist. You just are arguing in favor of more discrimination, and more discrimination doesn't make straight people's lives any better." -Rachel Maddow to Jim DeMint and Ralph Reed

When working with high heat, the first contact between the cooking surface and the food must be respected.
