Sadly the word slow isn't much appreciated these days. Last year I had the opportunity to eat a dinner made in a slow fashion which brought out the very best in the meat. So wonderful!

Great corner view entry! And I had to laugh at the mention of the dot matrix printer. Not only were they show, but it was so easy to get the paper in wrong... We've come a long way!
