Whew! So here we are, safely on our own at 86andholding,blogspot.com , after that initial venture that left us blundering into someone else's blog and meditating on the belly fat problem. You will agree, I trust, that 86 is a lot classier than 80 in a blog title anyhow. 86 has the merit of being truthful, at least until next February 27, and it has resonance -- If you have a friend in the restaurant business you can investigate its meaning. Or-- You Can Look It Up. That phrase is used so much these days that I decided to look up "you can look it up." I had the impression it had something to do with baseball, and indeed it does. Turns out it is the title of a James Thurber story about a baseball manager who hired a dwarf -- very difficult strike zone. Evidently based on a true incident, which was just a brief stunt. I forget the details, but you can look it up.
Meanwhile, if you google 86, you'll learn that
