: Seriously, for my part above, unsolicited negative comments against 1.9s are a given. No news there. My point was that I seem to get them from 2.3'ers who have yet to join this forum, despite my encouraging them to do so. Curious, IMO.
jeez, every time now I have to go to the fridge and check..... rough life eh?
Now as to what to serve with escargot... I dunno about champagne. imho the correct procedure would be champange as aperatif before snails, served with garlic bread and followed with red wine, but then, I break a lot of rules when it comes to feasting.
On the other hand, I would no more serve a fool who rates cars by engine size a saucy tidbit than Marie Antoinette would serve cake!
