That the last message was duplicated?

I understand what you mean with the sleep apnea aparatus.

We have motels also.
They are cheaper than hotels.
But they are not at the center of touristy areas.
We could stay further away.

I'll look and send you more info.

Mr. Zen,
Did you get the email message I sent you?

I've tried emailing you here, twice.
Not sure if messages actually go thru!

Might you check and let me know?

Adding to the list of things to do over here:

1- go out for a catfish dinner.

It is the equivalent of "fish and chips".
It is a mild white fish, battered, with our version of chips, which we call french fries (they are long cut).
It is also served with a small side of coleslaw and some dipping sauce for the fish, called tartar sauce.
We also put lemon on our fish.

Catfish is a big thing here in the South, and it is very fresh.
Not like when I used to live in the Midwest of Chicago, where you could only get it frozen.

The only difference here would be the catfish. Usually, we have cod, plaice or haddock. Chips come in all kinds of varieties. Lemon and tartar sauce are standard. Usual accompaniment is peas, from mushy to petit pois, but I have seen cole slaw. I prefer baked beans and curry sauce.

At "Cheddar's" (a local restaurant) you can get a side of beans, instead of coleslaw, but they are not sweet-ish like your baked beans.
And over here you will not find curry sauce, unfortunately ... :huh:

Also, no mushy peas here either.
I liked those when I first tried them! Found them to be a better alternative to mashed potatoes!

When I'm up there I get cod and mushy peas! Love it!

'Our baked beans'? We got them from you :lol: But if you haven't had curried beans, you haven't lived, IMO.

Are they spicy?
I'm going to have to try them, then!
It'll be up to you then, to show me!

I think baked beans (in a tin, not home made) always benefit with a little something if not already added. I often use chili sauce or curry powder. It is nearly impossible to get them in France and when you do the quality is very poor so they need a bit of help. I grew up with beans on toast which seemed novel to an American I once knew. For added luxury, we'd get an egg on top.

That actually sounds yummy!

I copied the beans on toast from Malcolm.
I saw it when I went to the UK the first time, at a place we went to for breakfast.
I love eggs, so that would work for me.

My only problem is that I have to have "special" bread.
I'm intolerant to gluten.
Yuck!
For I love pizza and pasta.
I have to make pretend pizza and use spaghetti squash instead of pasta.

It's healthier either way, but not the same ...
