    Philip, Thanks for the link to ncfolk/NCFood. What a treasure trove of stoties and local recepes! I had fun going into the archives. My interest was piqued by an entry titled "Livermush, grits and eggs." I'm glad to see that scrapple exists in other parts of the country. If any one is in Lower Slower Delaware on 10/13-14, Bridgeville, DE is having their Apple Scrapple Festival.

    By the way, the egg sauce turned out top notch.

    TTFN, Bear

    Congrats to the Wilma Lee!!!! Sail on....

    NC Mainlander thinks a special song should be created for the Wilma Lee, if it hasn't already been done.
