    Just a positive comment-I enjoy the “small talk”. Is that not what we do when chatting with a friend and neighbor? I do not usually delve into the debates over NAFTA and global warming in light conversation. Keep up your work and stay true to thine self.

    Regarding the Amish Sweetheart Pudding recipes: is there such a thing as melted coupons (lline 3) or is this a trick to see if readers are paying attention?

    A few days ago I replied to your daily email which was about the spelling of Plattsburgh NY and how it used to be spelled Plattsburg. I lived in that area for 42 years and never saw it spelled that way, but anyhow it’s a nice small city in Upstate NY. Many people like to call the Syracuse and Buffalo areas Update NY and they are not. However, the interesting food thing about Plattsburgh is it is where Michigan Red Hots originated. You and others mostly call them chili dogs and Coney Island dogs. Those to me are sorry knock offs. A Michigan is way better. I am including a link to the story of Michigan Hots which you may find interesting http://www.seriouseats.com/2010/06/hot-dog-of-the-week-plattsburgh-ny-michigans-new-york.html

    PS: If you have never been to Plattsburgh you should visit there…especially in the fall. It’s much nicer than Watertown which you mentioned you like better.

      Kathy, that is fascinating article, thank you for sharing, I never knew! Also, fair points you’ve made about Plattsburgh vs. Watertown, my comparisons aren’t just. I have been through downtown Watertown and it was years and years ago and it was so charming, when I was there there was still a WOOLWORTH downtown! It was like a storybook setting…Plattsburgh I’ve only been to the interstate exits, so it really isn’t a fair compare. And I do love Lake Champlain and you have that much closer, so,yeah, I’ll give Plattsburgh a fair shake! – Kevin
