Must see to appreciate! $179,500 by Bill Fink Food For I've been lucky over the years in that I got to live or travel all over America• There were some places rve loved, others that I wouldn't go back to if all expenses were paid. But one thing that every area rve been to has, is its' claim to fame on its' lOcal cuisine• rm going to make what some might consider some outlandish claims and if you really think rm wrong or you know better, you can write a letter to the editor with your opinion and wax eloquently on grits or German food or whatever. Speaking of grits, my first experience was in a North Carolina diner when I was eighteen• It was just like a scene from the movie My Cousin Vinny. The waitress asked if I wanted grits, I replied what's a grit and had them for the first and last time• I still don't know what a grits or a grit is because I never had them again, so the door is wide open as to where the best grit or grits are made• I don't care. I may be a little prejudice in regards to the cuisine and produce of New Jersey but for my money the Garden State produces the best Beef Steak tomatoes anywhere• They were part of the daily produce of my Grandmother's garden but rd put up those dense, red, sweet, juicy fruits against any in the country, bar none. Jersey subs, the best anywhere• Pizza, Jersey Shore and Brooklyn, NY a tie. Italian food, Jersey, New York and View Parcel, 5 acres. Nice gently slopping parcel, good well, water storage tank, shed and pump house. There is a septic tank installed but the condition of the system is unknown at this time.

Perfect for someone who wants to be active in preserving Julian's rich heritage. 3 bedroo- ' 3 full baths, 2 car garage ,C~ guest house with full batF " ~"~='en used as a weekend r- ,..~.~many years. Located in *'~:~t~:-'~ of Julian. $4' ~., Harrison Park, 5 acre two 2.5 parcels with fabulous views of the Julian countrysides. Perc test and survey completed. Unique property with terrific potential. $12o, ooo Boston, everywhere else just doesn't get it. Really, if you find great Italian food, they're probably from Jersey, NY or Boston• German food? rm kind of an expert as I grew up with a German grandfather. Problem was that Grandma was a lousy cook and ruined German food as well as anything else she made• If German food is haute cuisine I just don't get it. If I went to Germany rd probably eat Italian• Crab? Hands down the best crab in the country is the Chesapeake Blue Crab. Not only is this little crustacean fabulous eating, but the p?ocess of dining in a crab house in Maryland, Delaware or Virginia is a lot of fun. Typically the furnishings are sparse and rustic as you sit down to a long, butcher paper covered table• The menu is limited, Old Bay Seasoned crab brought to you in a half or whole bushel basket and dumped in the middle of the table where you proceed to break apart or smash (the crab that is) them with little wooden mallets• The Old Bay that begins to singe your lips and tongue is slaked by copious amounts of cold beer There's shrimp, French fries, coleslaw and hush puppies on the menu but they all take second fiddle to the crab. Truly one of the great and fun dining experiences in the country• Beef? Chicago, Austin, Kansas City? I can't really say definitively but one of the best experiences rve had was stopping at a small gas station-convenience store- caf6 just outside the east gate of Badlands National Park in South Dakota• We were supposed to go back to our friends home for a crock-pot meal but when we saw this gargantuan slab of two inch thick medium rare prime rib hanging over the plate with no room for the baked potato and veggie that came on another plate all for fourteen bucks for God sakes, the crock pot meal was relegated to leftovers. I asked the waitress where they got their meat, she waved her thumb and said, "The herd out back"• Corn? Jersey Sweet or Maryland Silver, toss-up, rve eaten corn all over the country A RARE FIND! 3.97 Acre View Parcel. This parcel is situated within walking distance of town and is ready to go with electricity, telephone, shed and a well completed.

This 1644 SF modular has a fantastic view, sits on the P " of open space yet is within 'J,C~ • distance of everything ip ~,.~.-nis is the nicest, afforda~'...~P1ospace in Julian. ~'~ and everywhere else it's just corn. Gumbo? rve had the imposters everywhere but nowhere compares to places all along the Gulf Coast except for maybe Woody's Pit BBQ in Anaheim. Of course Woody was from Louisiana and "his" Gumbo reflected his roots. Unfortunately. for Woody, the restaurant was next to a really sleazy strip joint so location killed him along with my Friday afternoon repast. Gumbo, from the African word Gombo meaning okra. In the west you've probably never heard of She Crab Soup but it's a staple of the South Carolina low country. If you're ever in Charleston don't miss it at Hiram's. Chowdah? Anywhere in New England, and don't even try to tell me that those thick, pasty imitations from everywhere else, where your spoon will stand straight up are anything even remotely like the creamy, milky, flavorful, clam packed version of our Northeast states. Lobstah? Guess. Hint... they have claws and they pronounce it Lobstah. Oysters are a hard one. I'love them and have had them all over the country that's in close proximity to the water• But my choice are the varieties that are available from the cold waters of Washington State• Small, salty, cold with lemon and horseradish sauce and cold beer, really hard to beat. rm not a real connoisseur when it comes to Mexican food but the best rve had was in LA. I also used to eat in La Paz and Punta Colorado years ago and other than the tortillas it was nothing like what we assume the Mexicans are eating in their coastal areas• Jewish Delis, home of the pastrami, or corned beef sandwich, or matzah ball soup, knishes and Dr. Brown's Cel- Ray soda (yes it's really celery flavored)• New York of course or anywhere that the Jewish diaspora has wandered• A local taste of an authentic NY deli would be DZ Akins. I just don't understand why Jewlian doesn't have an authenticdeli. Go figure• Apple Pie? Uh... l Quaint 1930's style home located in the Julian Village. Features 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, basement plus an extra room. Pretty views of the mountains across the valley.

I support gay marriage. I support gay marriage because I believe Conservatives support the-institutions of commitment. -- George Osborne [I by Larry Cracker Jack Q: When I was a kid in the 1950s, Cracker Jack was one of my favorite snacks. I loved the prizes inside each box and have a cigar box full of ones I managed to save. Since I have some duplicates, I would like to find others who collect so I can swap for ones I don't already have. -- Paul, Mercer Island, Washington A: F.W.

In 1912, prizes were added to each box, and since then more than 18 billion have been distributed• Almost anything associated with this popcorn, molasses and peanut product is collectible• Some of the prizes have become extremely valuable• For example, a horse-drawn wagon trinket from the 1930s, $450; a nodding-head elephant, also from the same period, $500; magic game book, circa 1940s, $50; paper whistles, 1940s, $40; and a miniature grandfather clock, 1947, $100• Plastic toys from the 1950s generally sell in the $3 to $10 range• I suggest you contact the Cracker Jack Collectors Association, a group formed in 1994.
