Thanks for plugging the Piecemakers buffet in the Monday "Our Towns"
I was told, they got the biggest crowd ever, there were 3 complete
"sittings" and the line past the buffet ran continuously til the
Obviously, nobody was frightened by the "barring of health
inspectors." Nobody pays attention to the arrogant tyrants in the
health dept, anyway. The customers are glad to make their own
Nobody got sick or even got choked on anything. The "health dept"
is a complete waste of taxpayer's time and money. It should be
abolished, the people fired and the buildings and office equipment sold.
There was even a small concert by The Mixed Chorus, some 20 people in
perfect harmony singing praises of liberty and freedom and good
digestion. They were scheduled to perform once, but the crowd
demanded an encore, then two more.
As one customer said, "It's like visiting grandma's house at
Christmas. Lots of fun people and a table groaning under the load
of God's bounty. Glad we came."
This is precisely the kind of community activity that Marie, the
group's leader, believes is the group's mission in life. She is
glad the store can serve thousands of customers with crafts products
and teaching seminars, but the real joy is in providing the little
"extras" like community activities such as buffets, banquets, fairs and
theatrical presentations that entertain ALL kinds of customers.
The Piecemakers Store, Crafts School and Pumpkin Patch are a true
community benefit to living in Costa Mesa -- a great enhancement to the
lifestyle here. People who are weary of a life of preservatives,
artificial sweeteners, plasticized food and embalmed meats, will surely
enjoy the country home cooking of the Piecemakers' Kitchen.
Bring your whittlin' knife and come over and set a spell. Have
some authentic apple pie devoid of fillers, HFCs, PVCs, PBEs,
DVDs or compressed air.
