    Hickory~Nut,
    Anyone can come to these events..you most certainly would be welcome, it doesn`t matter what you own as all of the eggs used are provide by Seasonal dist. except for the ones back at the hotel. Glad you enjoyed the pics...a party it was indeed..I needed help just to get back to the room Sat. night...LOL[p]Wess

    WessB,
    Great pictures, thanks for taking the time to post them. I see that all of you really had a great time. Maybe if a west coast event ever happens we will be able to post picture's for all on the right coast to see.

    Thanks,
    New Bob

    Great pics. Kinda makes me homesick!

  • WessB,
    Great pics Wess. Sounds like a good time was had by all.[p]Good bandwidth on the website too. I looked at every one of the pics and not one single hiccup.[p]Time to put the Jerk Chicken on,

    WessB,[p]Those are some great pictures. What I like most about them is that in almost any picture I'm in, the person I'm talking with is either grimacing or has their eyes closed. This pretty accurately captures most folks' reactions to conversation with me! Also, I look pretty looped in that last picture...which pretty accurately depicts what I look like after drinking since 9:30am in the hotel![p]What a great time!!! I think I agree with Dr. Woo about that flank steak with prosciutto being my favorite dish. Also, those jalapeno stuffed olives were unbelievable. Woo himself did some chicken drumsticks that were perfectly cooked and convinced me to buy a jar of Swamp Venom at the after party. Wess, your wings at the after party were delicious with that sweet start that then morphed into some enticing heat. The smoked bologna was awesome, and that smoked provelone was simply a fantasticly simple idea which will be making it to the Meadowlands this year.[p]Smokin' Todd made some excellent ribs and some meatloaf which lead to a pretty funny story. We stupidly stopped at a drive through beer store on the way back to the hotel. One of my drunken brothers yelled in to the attendent asking if he wanted meatloaf. The man enthusiastically accepted and started chowing down. What was funny was a minute or so later one of my drunken brothers saying, "...ummmm...we're gonna need that back..." It turns out the guy threw in a small bottle of Jaegermeister (sp) as a freebie to compensate for the meatloaf. Too funny!!![p]The Eggfest itself was great and the post party was my favorite post fest activity yet. Also, the band was fantastic this year.[p]Many thanks to Dale, the man himself, for putting this thing on. Also, I hope we can do this again next year!!![p]I had so much fun during the day that I somehow managed to sleep through that fire alarm!!![p]I have a bunch of pics, but I currently don't know where the software is for my digi cam. I'll hopefully have this resolved shortly and some pics will be forthcoming.[p]
    Heeeeeeee,

    WessB,
    Great pictures, would be great to get an eggfest organized for the West Coast. My realquestion to you is what software or website was used to post the pictures and the captions. I really thought that was well done.

    LumpyBob,
    Thanks... I have it on a computer at work (which explains the speed ) and the software is a free version of "omnihttpd" seems to work well..as far as the captions, it`s just a simple webpage using a table to hold the image and caption, still an amazing amount of work to get all those pics out of the camera re-sized and renamed, then put on the page,all has to be uploaded to the server..then Sally and I had to remember names, and cooks to add the captions...well worth the time and trouble.[p]Wess

    WessB, Great pictures.I hate missing this fun. I am still trying to figure out "cornfed". Is this a set of several people with the same name, a family, or some brothers? Can't wait til Octoberfest!!
