There are two versions of Chowhound Search that you can
use to find messages and articles based on key words.
Access to the Search page can be found on the main
Chowhound page at
You can also find a link to the Chowhound Excite search
page from here. Excite is much quicker but not as
"up-to-the-second" since it has to be reindexed
manually (ie. whenever I can get around to doing it).
But for your purposes (looking for an older message),
it's fine. I've included a link that launches a search
for "portugal" below.
