Isn't true that you should only eat oysters in the months that end in ''R''? I love oysters!!! We have a place here in Redondo Beach CA that has about 20 different types, decisions decisions....I think the smaller the better...thats not what she said! ;)

You have it backwards, you don't eat oysters in the months with R in them.  R is the 1st letter in Red Tide, a toxic algae that has been known to kill people who eat shell fish contaminated with it.

I don't know about that I've killed and eaten rabbit, pork, and oysters in every month of the year and I'm still standing.  I also see you missed the joke on the letter R.  I guess I need to LOL statements like that as I've missed intended humor in the past myself when no smiley or LOL in appended.

 I was always told that you only eat them in a month that had an R in it. During the hot part of the year they are milky and not very good. I still skip Sept.

I am only 10 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, I have s small seafood monger and 2 supermarkets who deal with the same quality boats. Literally, at most of your quality seafood - or fast seasfood turn around is always fresh and good. Any FISH runs from $5.95 to $14.95 at the monger, but GREAT PRICES especially about shrimp, fresh and saltwater fish, unique critters too.

I would eat more seafood if my wife woulf come up to bat and eat her fairshare. She'll by 1.5 - 1.75 lbs of fillets of scrod for me and also for her. Now, Tracey may eat a nice broiled in extra virgin and fresh cracked big chunks of peppercorn. Uner a broiler and cooked very moist.

Notice Jerry you can say saltwater again - lol. I fixed a few :)

BUT TO THE POINT: I would love to try every REAL APPITIZER  or MEAL on Earth - minus (and I hate to sound bigotted) 3rd world countries.

I will taste anything, I won't love everything - but I bet a find LOTS of NEW FAVORITE things to eat!!!!
