 WEBSITE NEWS
.................................................................
WE WERE HACKED!
Well if you tried to access the Food Reference website Saturday
night or Sunday morning - you couldn't. Several servers on Dell
Hosting, including mine, were 'hacked'. Dell was pretty much on
top of it, and working with them the site was up and running
again by noon on Sunday.

CHECK THE WEBSITE DAILY - I am posting a new FOOD QUIZ question
each day on the website, along with a Daily Culinary Quote,
Daily Trivia and other interesting food items.

MTV is here in Key West for the summer, and the Back Street Boys
were the most interesting visitors this week. Or maybe it was
the Jamaican Fire-Eater performing at Blue Heaven Restaurant.

 TRIVIA
Unlike most fruit, pears are better when picked hard and unripe.
They improve in both texture and flavor after they are picked.
