The sad news about the demise of Hostess Twinkies reminded me of Sarah, Duchess of York.
What do Fergie and Twinkies have in common?
Well, me, actually, since I introduced the Duchess to the classic American snack during one of my interviews with her.
Enjoy the video below, and if you have any Twinkies stashed away, now's the time to dig in.

Sad news, Teri Shields passed away. I interviewed her years ago with her daughter Brooke (Brooke became a frequent guest of mine.) My interview with Teri was quoted in today's New York Times. There's a link to a video of the original interview below:

Of the thousands of people I've interviewed, Gore Vidal stands near top of list for being a guest on TV who looked great, entertained, raised pulses and ratings. His assertion: 'There is not one human problem that could not be resolved if people would simply do as I advise,' was a line he uttered that I will never forget.

I’ve got to admit, time really does fly by.
I began this blog on this day back in 2006.
I posted an item about one of my favorite restaurants—the charming Homestead Inn in Greenwich, Connecticut where I had the best meals of the previous year, 2005.
Just thinking about now makes whets my appetite...
Join me in a toast to future travels and adventures—Cheers Everyone!
