Have to plug Ernie's Place. They allowed us to have an anniversary party there last evening and it went off well. Great wings, though the hot ones are not for the meek. Would rate them HOT.

Staff is friendly and helpful and its clean.

I hate to do this, but after my one and only visit to Mo's on 66 between East Hampton and Portland, I wanted to warn you off the pancakes.

Maybe they were having a bad day, but any place that will serve up and take to the table pancakes that were BLACK they were so burned in places, needs to close up shop.

Sorry to have to correct you on the spelling of Marlboro, but it is not like the cigarette, it is spelled "Marlborough". The people in town get picky about that! Not that I live in the town, but know people who do.
You also might want to try eating at Sadler's Ordinary or the Marlborough Tavern if they are still there, depending on how much you want to spend. Don't forget to get some penny candy at the Marborough Country Barn next to Sadler's. The Tavern is a nice place to have a brew. There used to be a place on the east side of the bridge crossing over RT2 on Rt66 in the little shopping center off to the left, it usually had some kind of place to eat. Had a friend who used to cook there when there was a restaurant there.

Anyone lucky enough to live within driving distance of Foxwoods Casino in CT needs to drop by their new restaurant Amy Ruth’s which is owned by Carl S. Redding and offers “Home Style Southern Cuisine”.

Henry and I tried out the Honey Fried Chicken and Collard Green’s while there and believe me I though I’d died and gone back South!!!

5 Kudzu Leaves to the desserts too, we had the Country Bread Pudding and Peach Cobbler, which was out of this world.

An added delight to our visit was to be honored by Mr. Redding joining our table and buying our dessert. He may be from NYC, but his heart is that of a true southern gentleman.

Tough place for lodging, work was OK.

"Nuclear Plant's Dome Coming Down
 Demolition Work Lowers Concrete Structure By 100 Feet, And Removal Of The Rest Should Begin Soon
July 6, 2006

HADDAM -- The landmark concrete dome that for decades housed Connecticut Yankee nuclear power plant's reactor has been markedly lowered.

The company expects to fully demolish the reactor containment dome this month and restore the landscape along the Haddam stretch of the Connecticut River.

Connecticut Yankee permanently shut down in 1996, after producing 110 billion kilowatt hours of electricity over 28 years.

Since April, demolition crews have shortened the dome's height from 175 to 75 feet.

Connecticut Yankee spokeswoman Kelley Smith reported Wednesday that decommissioning at the Haddam Neck plant site is more than 90 percent completed.,0,4760070.story?coll=hc-headlines-local
