The Acme Barbecue College

Once upon a time, in Alhambra, CA, you could go to school just for BBQ. One presumes that this is where Wile E. Coyote learned how to cook a Road Runner--if one such could ever be caught!

In Kansas City the BBQ firm of Gates and Sons operate a similar school for pitmasters called "Rib Tech".

I remember KTTV channel 11. In the 50´s we had 2 4 and 7 as the national channels and 5, 9, 11 and 13 as the local L A channels.

That´s funny. For the first time a comment appeared under my real name even though it still shows F. U. D. on the form. Must be your new server ?

It's a shame that Wile E Coyote will be remembered by most for his failed attempts at securing dinner, as opposed to the brilliant painter of tunnels that he actually was.

F.U.D. -- Interesting that it did that. Yeah, I guess it must have something to do with the new server, though I don't know why specifically.

I lived just a few miles from there in the late 50's. Why couldn't my Dad have spent a little time at that school instead of the golf course?

Alex, it took me a while to post (under Trick or Treat!...) until I notice it had forgotten my name & I re-entered it. Also, it no longer picks up the "Location" field -- no big deal, IMO.

Virtual -- As long as everything is mostly working okay, I'm considering that a success. In the over 20 years I've had a website, this was the first time a webhost told me I needed to complete the process of moving to a new server entirely on my own. Before they had always done that for me. Figuring out how to export and import the mysql database turned out to be pretty straightforward, but, not being a techie, I'm not sure if there were any small details I should have done but was unaware of.
