Thank you for expressing your opinion. You know what they say about opinions.

Funny story: We were regulars at a pizzeria/restaurant in Sag Harbor. In the Summer it was a bit of a zoo. One family who we knew came in with their two pre teens while we were there. They sat with us and their kids ran around like total animals. Even our 7 year old son knew it was wrong. The waitress was a friend and as we left I apologized. She said: "No worries. Everyone in town knows them as 'The Louds'!" I had to laugh.
We have a saying out East on Long Island: "Summer people, some are not!"

Hmmm? I really have to think about that. Other than my car most things were better 20 or more like 40 years ago. Then again............
My mind is racing.

Do you pray before a meal?

Think about the "Hail Mary" prayer. Do any Catholic school 5th graders really understand what they are saying over and over and over. "Blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus!" Heavy stuff!!

I think Bob meant more like 40 years ago. The new generation of permissive, entitled yuppie parents is the cause.

No kids allowed?

Yes!! It would be great to go to a fine restaurant knowing I would be undisturbed by ill behaved children.
Unfortunately many parents of today have a self indulgent sense of entitlement. Sadly, they will pass this on to their children.
We would often bring our young son to restaurants. Never to high end "intimate" restaurants but to many middle of the road fine restaurants. If he got cranky one of us would immediately bring him outside. In McDonalds or Chuck E Cheese it was a free for all but we still expected him to behave well.

Do you pray before a meal?

Do you think most people reciting that actually think about the words and what they mean? I doubt it. It's lost meaning and become a chant.

My first choice would be an Italian specialty (pork) store where they make it fresh.
COSTCO sells Buffala Mozzarella that is excellent.

Shopping for motorhomes today!

Never a fan of H&H. How would I get a bagel to stay on my bald head? I have the same trouble with Yarmulkahs!

Do you pray before a meal?

Being agnostic I don't have a religious prayer. When I have a dinner party I do like to say a few words thanking the farmer, fisherman, merchant, cook etc. for the meal.
I feel it is good to be aware of our good fortune and be aware of the process it takes to get our meal on the table.
I don't do this when I eat alone.
When I hear a religious prayer or "Grace" I always seems like a chant. I wonder if the people actually have a feel for what they are actually saying or if it's just a knee jerk reaction.
"Rub a dub dub, thanks for the grub, Yay god!"

I've been wearing baseball caps but wanted to buy a hip fedora. But every time I tried one on I channeled Rocky Balboa and changed my mind.
For my birthday two years ago a good friend gave me a straw fedora that looked great. He saved me the trouble of making the decision.
The hat was not high quality and was looking shabby after two years.
For my latest birthday my trophy GF gave me a very nice expensive Stetson (not a cowboy hat) straw hat that looks fabulous. She bought it at H&H hats on 5th Ave in Manhattan. An amazing hat shop.
Now I channel Paul Newman in The Sting.
Thanks for letting me share.

When I was a child my parents tormented me by threatening to make me wear a fedora.
What do I wear now? A fedora!! I thank the hipsters for that.

Anyone been to Puttanesca?

1997!!!!!!!! OMG!!! For what it's worth I like Puttanesca. Becco is good but always seems like a bit of a factory on a schedule, the Broadway schedule.

Eating Corn On The Cob--What's Your Style???

Soak the ears with the husks on then roast in the BBQ grill.
Peel off the husks and brush/slather with chili lime butter. Douse with salt.
Eat left to right typewriter style.
Clean all kernels from cob.
Roll denuded cob in plate to soak up butter sauce. Suck all of the sauce off cob.
Bite off small chunks of cob to squeeze out the center sweetness.
Toss the remains in the compost heap.
Thanks for letting me share.

Gigantic cucumber?

I seem to find those hidden cukes in my garden. I peel it and slice lengthwise into quarters. I scoop out the seeds which are usually too big and not tasty.
I will also make yogurt, mint, garlic cucumber cold soup by slicing the cuke thinly, no seeds.
