I thought the discussion of elk butt might have deteriorated further before we returned to pizza. To answer's Jason's question about Boston's in GJ, it is owned by a Canadian chain, Boston Pizza, and is a bit different and good, though sometimes weird. Nachos as made by Canadian standards can only be said to be Mexican influenced. The American version of Boston Pizza has been Americanized—more fatty stuff mainly (for ex., Caesar salad has twice as much dressing than in Canada). Still a chain restaurant better than most, though the ones in Canada are a lot better than the US version.

Yes, restaurants in western Colorado are for the most part, awful. The Vagabond in Crawford is very good. The Chef, Dick Berardi, is well known around the county and in the Denver/Boulder area. I don't know how much longer he can keep this up because fine dining is not appreciated here, but a trip there is well worth it while he's still there.

Why would anyone go to Italy for pizza? Isn't it an American invention?

This:

The term 'pizza' first appeared "in a Latin text from the southern Italian town of Gaeta in 997 AD, which claims that a tenant of certain property is to give the bishop of Gaeta 'duodecim pizze', "twelve pizzas", every Christmas Day, and another twelve every Easter Sunday,"

Is from this:

I just checked that out. No doubt in my mind now. I have absolutely no life. Sal.

I read it too Sal. I have no life either, but I refuse to believe a pizza with pineapple is Italian.

Didn't we invent fortune cookies and chow mein?

I joined the club also, I was trying to put off paying bills for the clinic. It worked. Then Elsa just peed on my recliner. Potty training is a pain. Thats one of the 2 year old twins not a dog.

Dog would probably be easier and you can rub their nose in it and wake them for it The other twin Linnea has no problems.

I was going to comment on this but I can not get in touch with my therapist. She moonlights as a game warden and is in the woods.
I don't think I can get back into the club, though.

The whole concept of therapists is just so sadů Imagine, not having one single friend to tell your troubles to over a beer, so that you have to pay someone by the hour to listen to your tales of woe. Especially since once you're done, the therapist will ask you, "Well, what do you think you should do?" without ever actually giving you advice the way a drinking buddy would.

Quite often, the best advice is no advice.

I'm more inclined to think that quite often, the best therapist is no therapist.

The best advice I ever received was also quite succinct: "You're screwed. Get over it." Won't EVER find a therapist that will give it to you flat-out like that!

I think you need a therapist. You have pent up hostilities toward therapy.

You're not a therapist trying to drum up business, are you?

Anyway, I don't have any pent-up hostility; my hostilities are all in the open for the whole world to see. Keeping hostility pent-up is bad for my blood pressure, so I vent my frustrations and get it out of my system early and often.

I would like to continue this discussion, but I'll be late for my therapy. My therapy is riding about 20 miles on my bicycle. (Some people say that I pedal my ass all around town). It is a nice not too hot day. However people in the states up wind from us are burning their wild lands, so its pretty hazy.

Pro',

If you want someone to say "you're screwed, get over it", see a lawyer.
