Well, of course you don't remember it, none of us were there. But you've heard of it, right? It was nuts! People in Western Europe were fleeing right and left to try and escape it, which resulted in widespread chaos that wiped out a third of Europe's population.

[caption id="attachment_7669" align="aligncenter" width="1181"] You can learn a lot from just sitting and watching. (From Kitchen Stories, 2003)[/caption] I’m a people watcher.
