My cooking is so bad my kids thought Thanksgiving was to commemorate Pearl Harbor. Phyllis Diller
Phyllis Ada Diller (July 17, 1917 – August 20, 2012) was an American actress and stand-up comedian, best known for her eccentric stage persona, her self-deprecating humor, her wild hair and clothes, and her exaggerated, cackling laugh.
From Ms. Clarkson’s own blog site The Old Foodie: I am enthusiastic about food and food history, and love to write about it. Every weekday I give you a short story on a food history topic – always including at least one historic recipe, and sometimes a historic menu. And how much fun is that!
I began this blog on October 31, 2005, with the intention of posting every Monday to Friday (including holiday days) without fail. I am proud to say I have not missed a day – and by the end of 2014 will have written over 2,500 posts! More often than not, more than one recipe is included (sometimes quite a few more) so the recipe count is in the many thousands.
I am the author of several books with a food history theme, and hope you read and enjoy them too!
From IMDB: All that Neal Page wants to do is to get home for Thanksgiving. His flight has been cancelled due to bad weather, so he decides on other means of transport. As well as bad luck, Neal is blessed with the presence of Del Griffith, Shower Curtain Ring Salesman and all-around blabbermouth, who is never short of advice, conversation, bad jokes, or company. And when he decides that he is going the same direction as Neal….
Del Griffith: You wanna hurt me? Go right ahead if it makes you feel any better. I’m an easy target. Yeah, you’re right. I talk too much. I also listen too much. I could be a cold-hearted cynic like you, but I don’t like to hurt people’s feelings. Well, you think what you want about me. I’m not changing. I like me. My wife likes me. My customers like me. ‘Cause I’m the real article. What you see is what you get.
