My coworker just handed me another bag of freshly picked ghost peppers, habaneros, lemon pepper and curry leaves.
Avatar 9:37am Sem Chumbo:

In addition to being ideal access points to the Jurassic Coast, gateway towns provide a complete range of services which support conservation and the management of the World Heritage Site. Each of the towns are destinations in their own respect.

I stopped at that one, though the list is very much longer.

The village of Beer is situated on the 95-mile long Jurassic Coast, England's first natural World Heritage Site and its picturesque cliffs, including Beer Head, form part of the South West Coast Path.

I'll have to look out for lemon peppers. From the description it sounds like they could add a citrus flavor to a dish? Sounds nice. I've been using limes and lemons a lot recently in my cooking.

I remember when I would read my Boy/Cub Scout magazines when I was a kid, and there used to be PSA comics w/ Meat Loaf about how kids shouldn't use drugs. I was confused, I thought Meat Loaf was some sort of lame superhero.
