I am still learning from him. I took up painting about a year and a half ago and he's the tutorial that I watch.

A party favorite in the 70’s involved melting cheese and sometimes chocolate in a metal communal pot heated with steno fuel. Then using long-handled forks you could dip bread, precooked meat or fruit in the warm melted edible delicacy.  

 

What was this party favorite nourishment called?

 

Fondue, and what I wouldn’t give right now for a pot full of fondue and the Eagles playing in the 8 track.

I would enjoy joining the AARP Righht Again! Trivia Contest 2021. Is it too late?
