Of course not! The only reason to com here is for the *food*.
Preach it, Caliann – food’s at least the BEST reason. Getting away from 6′ piles of dirty snow everywhere you look is another…
Okay, food and *warmth* are the best reasons to come here. LOL But, I must say, there is a certain wisdom in a plate piled high with homefries, steak, biscuits, all slathered in cream gravy with a nice side of of lemon-pepper greens that have been simmered in enough butter to cause a coronary just by themselves.

“Jeez, it’s FREEZING! It MUST be 70 degrees!”
Steve, being from Minnesota, nearly died of asphyxiation on the spot.
