    I love, love, love beans for breakfast. When I was in England breakfast was my favorite part of the day. Beans, tomatoes, fresh fruit, bangers...it was heaven on a plate.

    I'll take a good old southern breakfast of grits, ham, biscuits and gravy and eggs anytime.

    Here's something driving me crazy today- blame assignment. Specifically, why is it that the uppermost thing in the small mind is to make sure that first everyone understands that they are not to blame for the problem, and second another specific person is at fault, no matter how slight the problem. In the scheme of things, is it important that a you are not to blame for the copier being out of paper? Just refill it and move on, already.

    In general I agree. But the flip side of the same coin is equally pervasive if not moreso: never admitting fault.

    Naive maybe, but I really feel like dodging blame has become more commonplace.

    Leveraging off the breakfast discussion, it drives me crazy that taylor ham is (generally) only found in New Jersey.

    Or that I have yet to be able to find whole fried clams outside of New England. Everyplace else just has clam strips.

    I was going to add that you can get whole fried oysters in New Orleans. Or at least you used to.

    BTW, I'm not trying to softpedal the tragedy but this story might make you feel a little better.

    http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/...h4w3AD9GFQIS80

    More not-so-dreadful context: The amount of oil spilled so far could only fill the cavernous New Orleans Superdome about one-seventh of the way up. On the other hand, it could fill 15 Washington Monuments and two-thirds of the way up a 16th. If the oil were poured on a football field — complete with endzones — it would measure nearly 100 yards high.

    Me too, even though I'm ok with tomatoes and beans. Mostly I just want over-medium eggs done RIGHT.

    BTW: the hiearchy for syrup foods is waffles, pancakes, french toast.

    I've followed those numbers, too. Interesting to see the perspective.

    The amount isn't the issue.

    At all.

    It's the effect of what's there, regardless of the size.

    One can simply look at the ocean and see that the spill is small compared to all that water.

    I guess if you look at it this way, Hiroshima and Nagasaki weren't that big of a deal, relatively speaking.

    This argument would be like me spray painting my name on your house and then telling you that relatively speaking, I didn't put that much paint on it.

    You know, a little oil in the water has the same effect as a lot, truthfully. It's a mess.

    I have a buddy who will randomly scream "oh my god" going down the road like I'm about to hit something. He's kind of a tool like that.
