American things (continued)

Where I left off was just the beginning.
I found a nice looking place on the road,
 but then I realised it was actually
a McDonalds....! Different - yes, and we'll probably go to eat there sometime, but it is a McDo.......!
So - let's carry on with our American menu - next thing on the list is:
FROMAGE
As Gen. de Gaulle so aptly remarked, how is it possible to govern a country which has more than 3,000 different cheeses?
Well, he wouldn't have had the same problem in the States! 
They are almost all either blocks which can be cut into chunks or into slices which go on the slices of inedible bread, already mentioned.....! On the other hand, it seems that efforts are being made to do things  better
 in the same way as for the wines but it is difficult to change the habits of a large nation ......... takes time, and when many (in Europe) "normal" cheeses are suddenly classed as luxury items, with luxury tax (as in the case of "Roquefort" , from the district of l'Aveyron, Larzac in France) then Americans, or fewer French buy it......!

 Well - thar's the end - next time around, something good - DESSERT - You know they have things called cheesecake, and they are good, aren't they Ellen?
   but then, they ARE European in origin! Sorry!!!!! 
I'll look at ice cream, and then the famous difficulties with liquor/wine/beer stores then I should be so advanced as to print out my boarding pass for GOING HOME!...........................
