i would consider being envious that you had ped penang leftovers on my birthday, but i had a very tasty dinner cooked just for me, and a truly decedant piece of chocolate cake (also baked just for me). so i'm feeling suitably special to just be happy for you ;p

Just finished, with my Dad, enjoying two of the biggest bestest BBQ plates we've ever had.

Let me try to recreate the moment here...

This evening starting at 6:00 pm was the annual Mason Volunteer Fire Dept. BBQ &
auction. It was held at the community center in Ft. Mason park. I drove down there to pick up
a plate for me and Dad. I couldn't believe the turnout! Hundereds of people in line and more
coming!

It was about a thirty minute wait, but the line moved steadily. As I passed the auction tables
I asked the fellow sitting there "Where do I purchase my BBQ plate tickets, here, or over there by
the serving line?" "oh, no" he replied "theres a place you can make a donation over there."

As I got to the food tables I realize what he's talking about. At the front of the tables is a
rubbermaid trashcan with a secured lid with a small rectangle slot cut in top and a sign saying
"please place donations here". There was no person with a cah box selling tickets. It was
completely on the "honor system"

I put in two $10 bills (after all it is for a good cause) and nobody saw. Remember, it was
crowded. The line was "serve yourself" and there were steaming pans of Brisket, Grilled Chicken,
Smoked Sausage, Smoked Pork Loin and even Cabrito (goat, for those who don't speak Spanish).
And then there were the sides - Hot Pinto Beans, Potato Salad, Sliced Onions, Pickles and whole
Jalepeno Peppers. White sandwich bread, sauces, iced tea or your choice of soft drinks topped
it off.

When a couple of volunteers saw me struggling with two to-go plates, they came over and
insisted on carrying them for me and at the same time encouraging me to load them up as much
as possible. I could hardly get the lids closed. Then they offered to carry them out to my truck
for me. But being a big bad macho, I said I could handle it from there.

Got home, and we sat down at the kitchen table and had our plates... Absolutely Wonderful!!
Nice lean BBQ meats. The sides were great! Brisket Sammiches... YUM!!!! This was truly good! And
the people there were fantastic! (btw: I got everything but the cabrito)

It brings to mind a line from a John Cougar Mellencamp (or whatever he's calling himself
these days) song called Small Town :

"... But my bed is in a small town ... Oh, and that's good enough for me...

As I re-read my last post it seems like it might come across as a restaurant critique.
I didn't mean it that way, that's just how it came out.

The "fantastic people" I referred to are just other townsfolk. People I see almost everyday
at the Super S, the Chevron station, or even a local convenience store.

(please refer to song line above)

Sounds nice. I often regret that I live in a place where everyone thinks they're so damn sophisticated. Small town life seems like a nice existence.

I have friends who live in a small town..... Their biggest problem is that everyone knows everyones business. Anonimity is non-existant.

why? what are they trying to hide?

My neighbors know all my business. so what?

That's the same attitude people have with governments too..... If you have nothing to hide, why do you care?

I value my privacy, whether it's with governments, business, friends, etc.

And we value trying to intrude upon Ragnar's privacy at every opportunity.

It helps keep us on our toes.

Um ... there's a big difference between having Annabelle the Town Postmaster reading your postcards, and having Big Brother set up billion dollar surveillance frameworks to monitor your every move.

*peeks into Ragnar's underwear drawer...*

I donno. I live in a country that has national ID cards and requires you to list any change of address with the government. Doesn't bug me.

Only thing that bugged me was when they started arresting people who were leading political rallies or were active in political parties that the government didn't agree with.

And that's pretty much why, here in the US, we don't want our government doing that kind of nonsense.  We already see some mild abuses of power along those lines.

but they don't need to monitor your every move to do that.
