"The time has come," the Walrus said, "to talk of many things. " - From "Through the Looking Glass," by Lewis Carroll It's time the world had a serious think about etiquette. When it comes to which fork to use or what to do with our napkins, our parents know everything. As kids, we hear the inevitable from our parents: "Get your elbows off the table!" and "Chew with your mouth closed. You're not a cow. " We dismiss these words as nonsense - and sometimes forfeit dinner.

Thursday evening at LJ's & The Kat Lounge was both a reward for a year of participation and a lesson in etiquette for a group of young women and a young man from the Boys & Girls Club at Noland Village. The group arrived at LJ's in style, pulling up in a limousine provided by E.G. Specialized Limo Service. Once inside, they sat down for their seven-course meal with each setting having a dozen knives, forks and spoons on a wine-colored linen tablecloth. As each course is served, LJ's owner Alex Tiches told them before dinner, the diner goes from the outside utensil inward as the meal progresses.

By ART CALLAHAM | February 19, 2012
I wrote a couple of weeks ago about our nation's “Pledge of Allegiance” to our flag. I received several kind and supportive comments about the column. Some asked for my reference sources, to which I admit most of the information came from searching the Internet. I usually look at two or three different reference sources to ensure the information is essentially the same before I use it in my column. I was pleased that others found the information contained in my column interesting and informative.
