You look very French and your last name is that of a famous sci-fi publisher-editor I admire. Both pluses in my opinion.

Stumbled on this site looking for the bone-in pork loin roast (which I will try tomorrow) and, having my own dixie beauty from N. Carolina, we will spend some time with your offerings. Thanks.
