    Not a bad idea, and if necessary will use that method, although I hope

    Trust me, you haven't missed much. However, there is a roadside bbq
    joint on the main road into the Palms. They serve a mean steak with a
    baked potato that I think grew near a nuclear plant. One of my first
    stops every time I went out to visit him.
