Party went very well indeed.  I'm not sure they all would have thought I 
was such a Great Hostess if the crowd weren't already ecstatic, but 
that's probably just my natural modesty talking, the buffet was okay.  
Mom was a little embarrassed to be asked several times for the recipe 
for her BBQ meatballs, since it was no more than frozen Costco meatballs 
plus KC Masterpiece original bottled qsauce.  Whatever works, I say.

We could parlay this off-topic into a discussion of USAn regional BBQ 
sauces and styles and their historical antecedents, could we?  Sweet vs. 
Spicy vs. Vinegar/mustardy, etc.  Which flavors prevail in which areas, 
and what was the demographic of the early settlers in those areas?

Trying to muscle a topical discussion,
