Re: [BKARTS] odd things that one finds in a book

LOL i know what they mean! I have an unbelievably bad
condition copy of the second edition of Wenzel's Menu
Maker -- eight pounds of the best cookbook ever
published. I had a first edition I dearly loved, but I
had it stolen while I was cooking as a guest chef at a
christian church. (Southern Baptist I believe.)

Pagan, Pagan, what are you finding?
Yours is the road that winds lonely and far,
Strange are the shadows that round you come creeping,
Still through the clouds is the glint of a star!
