" Subject: oops
I mean no offense, but it startles me to see local food-and-wine types
misspell Mustards! Guess it's the restaurant's own fault for choosing a name
to susceptible to misunderstanding. It was, allegedly, named after the
beautiful mustard that blooms in the Napa springtime.

I suppose Mustards' owners are inured to this almost-universal error by now.

Best wishes,"

If that startles you, please take a Valium before I tell you that I often mistype "it's" when I really mean "its" even though I know the difference and will catch it in editing.

But please, please, I am not a local in Napa. I live 70 miles away on the far more beautiful side of the mountains in Alexander Valley. Otherwise I probably wouldn't have made the wrong turn. (g)

    I stand corrected. Not sure why I would be tagged a food and wine person, though. I'm "just" a housewife who is obsessed with food.

    As far as Alexander Valley being "far more beautiful" than Napa, that depends on where you are in Napa. There are some pretty spectacular spots over here too.

      Ann, I passed on that e-mail from a shy poster because I thought you'd find it amusing. You were only half-wrong, whereas I didn't spell it correctly in any of my previous posts.

        Melanie, glad you cleared that up. Thought for a minute there you were suffering from PMS.
