The first inhabitants on this continent were the Aborigines. Their food was of high nutritional quality and whenever sufficient energy was obtained through hunting and gathering, the nutrient intake was balanced and adequate. Plenty enough to allow a rich and diverse culture of art, story-telling, dance and song to develop across the 600 tribes present at the time of the coming of the British. The British influence determined the main dishes such as Sunday roasts, grilled chops, stews, and other recipes made from meat and served with vegetables. The most frequent vegetable side dishes became mashed potatoes, beans, carrots, and peas.
The Olde Pink House Restaurant and Piano Bar is located off Reynolds Square, near the corner of E. Bryan Street in Savannah, Georgia. This is a Georgian standard from 1771.

There is a basement bar/restaurant – descending down steep wooden steps one finds a nice piano bar with wooden tables surrounding it. On the right side of the room is a comfortable, relaxing sitting area with chairs and couches situated in front of a huge fireplace.
Turkish cuisine has also been a great influence on its neighboring cuisines and in other European countries. There are not only common Turkish specialties but also many region-specific specialties.

Tommy James and the Shondells hold a special place in my heart because they have so many great songs which I just simply love to listen to again and again. They reached the peak of their success in the late 1960s. This American rock band had two very popular hit singles in the U.S. which are still played on the radio today. The hits were”Hanky Panky” and”Crimson and Clover”.
At one of NYC’s oldest theaters, The Belasco Theater 111 West 44th St., there have been sightings of the builder and namesake, David Belasco. He lived in an apartment above the theater before he died in 1931. His ghost supposedly interacts with actors, offers kudos and handshakes. Many people have also reported hearing footsteps and the sound of the disconnected elevator running. There have been sightings of a Blue Lady who may have been Belasco’s companion.
