This article made my mouth start watering with my heart start racing to taste the pit fired delicacies. I plan to load up the van with the rug rats and begin my road trip today stopping at the P-town BBQ joint, and next weekend, extend my road trip to South Norfolk, and so on until I sampled each location. This is a great review and a fabulous idea for family outings while social distancing during the pandemic. Our journey has just began. Please continue your sampling reviews.

Poor App

Terrible mobile app compared to others. As a subscriber I am constantly having issues. Pilot Pop up ads will cover the entire stories when logged in to my full price subscription. I was Very disappointed when I contacted tech support, I was told they are constantly receiving complaints about the same issue. I will probably cancel, it’s just not worth the trouble.
In addition, I don't care for cometary news reports. I just want Walter Cronkite news reports. I will form my own opinion and could care less about the reporters personal take on the facts. I question credibility when I get news with two paragraphs of the reporters political views. Whether I agree or disagree, save the space and give us a factual report.

Thank you🥁.

I so very much appreciate your Print devoted to our Military 🇺🇸. Our Family has a total of 6 men and women serving in Navy and Marines ~ Planes, Pentagon, Hospital, Officers, Enlisted. Considering the Biden disaster this past weekend we will be anticipating more coverage even though we dread the facts of decisions being made by the White House and Congress.
