Monday night is my NASCAR night. Also, like the rest of you I have not been impressed by the commercials.

I am glad I left that way too thumpershere2!

There is no reason I can see that poor people have to be treated like slaves because they are poor and need their employment.

This only acted that way because he thought he held us in economic slavery. It was in a college town near an army base where so many soldier's wives and college students looking for work, kept wages down, and there were few jobs available -- and those were very low paying.

Many of those who worked there were poor and black with few other skills besides cooking, and there weren't that many restaurant jobs available.

Now you guys see why I would not watch any show where an employer acts like a slave overseer with a whip!

The names he called us were awful!

OLut of curiosity.... what has my nation got to do with 'Yelling off of American Idol'?

****'s kitchen is has been through (I think) 3 series over here - the first one was run by Gordon Ramsay. The last one by two other UK chefs, Gary Rhodes and Jean Christop Novelli. Less viewers each series. I think we are 'reality show-ed' out here in the UK!

WOW - how come MY H ell's Kitchen has been censored, but the thread title was allowed?!

Thank you, and welcome to DC!

I try my best to be as good a cook as the rest of my family!

We take pride in our cooking/baking, and when one of the family compliments you, it is like winning the olympics!

I about cried when my great aunt stood up in church to tell the congregation about the sugar cookies I baked for a inter-church meeting. She said everybody loved them and they were wonderful, and that I was as good a cook as my grandmother and mother, and was carrying on their tradition! I was truly a happy camper that day!
