I don't think anyone meant this as a slam to other parts of the country.  I
have either lived in or visited most parts of this country and have found
hospitality wherever I have gone.  Yes, I was raised in the tradition of
southern hospitality as well...but I think that it's more a matter of what
we want to do personally.

I also don't think that our having feasts is part of that heritage.  We were
originally a part of the East Kingdom and many of our "traditions" are
inherited from those folks.  Among those is the tradition of having feasts
at most of our events.
