Barry, well, if you have to be born in New England to really appreciate lobster in every possible way, then I labor under a slight disadvantage having been born in Egypt. Perhaps there is no hope for me? Perhaps that is why I discard the legs (? - are they legs??) disdainfully and eschew the green stuff. I'll await the lesson with bated breath - truly!

Liz - hope to be in England briefly in October of 2007 -- perhaps I can look you up? Smuggling lobsters in is probably not on the cards -- they are alive (til the fateful moment of the pot, of course) so it's a little bit unsubtle to stroll through the Green line at Customers -- carrying a brown paper bag with water dripping out (from the ice) and wriggling.....!!!!

Chanteyranger - thank you, too, for the welcome!
