Guest Columnist - Richie Murphy

Hi from the road.  Which road?   The correct one, I hope. 

We, the guest blogger and the head blogger, are visiting Texas for a birthday party.  You may have read about this party elsewhere.

"Is it hot this time of the year in Texas?" you ask?  Yes, around 100 and bit a bit humid. 

So:  as we travel the road from Beeville to San Antonio's airport, we stop for fuel.  It is a 7-11 petrol palace.  As the car needs fuel, so do the pilot and crew.  We  buy a 3 oz. bag of cashews.  We saved them though for our 6:30 a.m. flight home.  Good thing' not much else to eat on board.

So, I am thinking, the cashews must be from Brazil.  I look at the package and they are.  But, with some nutty friends - they are also from Cambodia, Ghana, Guinea, Bissau India, Indonesia, Ivory Coast, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Viet Nam.   Who knew that cashews were so worldly?

But notice:  no mention of the United States (no surprise.) 

So on "Jeopardy" when the question about cashews comes up - and it will - you will have the correct answer thanks to this blog!
