I know that Addie loves her New England and I do too, but I feel as passionate about the West, especially California and the Pacific North West of this Country. I hope you are able to get this far someday MC, as too many visitors from across the pond visit only the eastern states, and go home thinking they have at a true feeling of the country. Believe me, the first Disney park and "Hollyweird" is not the true California.

I love the Pacific Northwest. My heart still skips a beat every time I see Mt. Ranier.

Now that there's funny.
I seem to remember you telling me that they were "nothing like a sloppy joe" when I said that they were like sloppy joes, but cooked with a different sauce/juice
Thank you!

On a clear day we can see Mt. Ranier and Mt. Baker from different directions on our highway. It is such a beautiful view. We are only 15 minutes from the US border. But we can only look since we still haven't got our passports!

When I lived in Spanaway, south of Tacoma, I would open my drapes in the morning and there was Mt. Ranier and when I went out to the back porch to get my broom, there were the snow capped Olympic Mountains. Year round God given beauty.

My next door neighbor had a fireplace. When the kids were in school, we would go out to Mt. Ranier Nat. Park to pick up small branches and trunks for her fireplace. The two of us would each grab an end and toss them into the bed of her pickup. It was in the late fall, and the Ranger warned us that if we got caught in a whiteout, to stand still. Sure enough we got caught. We were standing there and heard a noise. And it wasn't coming from either one of us. After the whiteout cleared, we both looked at each other and saw the biggest, baddest, bear running in the opposite direction. Did that stop us from going back? Of course not. We were young and foolish.

MC, if you are coming all the way across the pond, you should consider visiting Canada too.

I love the western part of Canada. Such a diverse vista of scenery.

Sad to say but I was way past needing a map to find anything, even bathrooms, and could tell you pretty much what was on the menus of the restaurants, even the ones that changed from time to time. I've been with the grandkids a few times but between the fact that it has gotten so expensive plus the fact that the ankles, knees and hips don't handle Disney days so well anymore, just can't go and keep up with the kids.

While visiting Paris Disney might be fun, I'd never skip Paris itself over it though.

However, back to the original topic, I always thought Roseanne's loose meat sandwich was something like this

Recipe Request: The Stewart's Scramburger!!!!!

I like this way better than a traditional Sloppy Joe, not as "gloppy" (my term).
Sorry for the mistake in the Disney title. I'm sure it's great for kids but I think I'd still want them to see New England and the Rockies and Jamestown/Yorktown/Williamsburg and Washington DC and San Francisco and New York and dozens of other places.

I suspect that not many Brits make it to the west coast as it's twice as far as the east coast. When my cousin used to come from Australia on a visit she used to either come or go via the west coast of America and stop off for a few days. (Apparently Australia>UK>Australia used to be cheaper if you booked your flight as a round the world trip rather than flying back the way you came)

There was a series of TV programmes on about 30 years ago called "Great Railway Journeys of the World". On one of them the presenter (Ludovic Kennedy IIRC) went coast to coast across America with all sorts of detours to famous and/or interesting places. Now I wouldn't mind doing that.

But of course. Do the US and Canada allow foreigners to stay for 3 years when it's supposed to be a vacation! I think I'd need a green card to see all I'd want to in one holiday!
