England 2008

Just got back from a 9 day business trip to England. Stayed at a wonderful old hotel on the North Sea. Highly recommend it. The Grand Hotel
Went to church on Sunday. Note: no styrofoam cups, real English China at the coffee after church.
Ate some Shepherd Pie and Chips.

Tuesday night is Dutch Apple pancake night

Awesome. Tart Granny Smith, a special batter that gives almost a solid custard feel to the mouth.

Went to KC to see Jake and eat some BBQ

Arthur Bryant's is the best BBQ place in the nation. We went to the original location in KC. Yes, that is John and Sarah in the picture at Bryant's. They were there on Sept 7, 2008.

Saturday night we went to the American Royal for the big BBQ contest. Hundreds of competitors.

Finally, Mary wanted to go to Lamar's Donuts, but it was closed on Saturday pm, so we went back on Sunday morning before returning to Cincy. (I cannot live with a depressed woman.)

Mary wanted to take this picture since she thought I was stuck. (Actually, I was worried, but got out with a bit of rocking.)

Bodie Island, North Carolina

The week 1 winner, Kelli, is from Columbus, Ohio. Her store is right around the corner from Danny's place. We went up to see his show last night, but stopped first at the Black Market. Mary actually tried on a dress.
