 VERSE
Feast on wine or fast on water,
And your honor shall stand sure
If an angel out of heaven
Brings you something else to drink,
Thank him for his kind attentions,
Go and pour it down the sink.

 QUOTE
"In the light of what Proust wrote with so mild a stimulus, it
is the world's loss that he did not have a heartier appetite.
On a dozen Gardiner's Island oysters, a bowl of clam chowder,
a peck of steamers, some bay scallops, three sauteed soft-
shelled crabs, a few ears of fresh picked corn, a thin
swordfish steak of generous area, a pair of lobsters, and a
Long Island Duck, he might have written a masterpiece."
A.J. Liebling

-----------------------------------------------------------------
 TRIVIA
Marie, Vicomte de Botherel may have been the first to try the
concept of a dining car. In 1839 in Paris (or it's suburbs),
he installed kitchens on buses and stocked the food from
special kitchens he had built with the most modern equipment
available. His enterprise failed, and he is just a very obscure
footnote in history.
