I recently went to Natchez, MS and ate some biscuits at Biscuits and Blues Restaurant. They were the best biscuits I have ever eaten. I wonder if anyone has ever eaten there and if they have anything close to a recipe.
Thanks, Mary in Louisiana

Several days ago I came home to two frightened cats. Couldn't figure out what upset them until today. I was resting on my bed and watching TV when this huge dog was looking into my bedroom window. My back gate was open and they dog entered the back yard through the open gate. He hopped up on a table I have outside my bedroom window. I can understand why the cats were scared. He was barking, showing his teeth and looking in the window. After I pulled the binds down the dog went away. I locked the gate and hopefully that huge dog won't be back to scare us again.
