I wrote most of the Wikipedia article but any of my material from there has been 100% rewritten, edited, and added to here.

Yes, there's some interesting stuff there. I probably ought to incorporate some of the info, particularly from the Amer. Heritage article, into the Don the Beach article but I'm feeling lazy at the moment -- too many Mai Tais over the last couple of days. But I'll try to remember to scan a couple of the Phoebe Beach book photos and paste them in somewhere. Hayford Peirce 17:23, 6 July 2007 (CDT)

Okie, thanks for the tip -- I wuz doing some rewriting, shuffling around, and new material, and probably didn't realize it. I'll take a look and do some fixin'. in a new book, there's a photo of "Joan Crawford's favorite meal" -- almost exactly what I'd order too. I'll email the guy who wrote the book and see if I can get permission to upload it here. Hayford Peirce 16:00, 13 August 2008 (CDT)
