Jessica Loves Cincinnati Chili (I Assume)

     Big news Company!  I received a comment on my post yesterday, My Life Below the D-List, that floored me.  Absolutely floored me.  It was actually a comment about my apparently popular post called Chili Con Genius, which incidentally is a post that I thought no one would like.  I was just grasping for straws and just needed something to post, and it was dinnertime, and I'd been seeing chili all day...but I digress.  The comment was from a girl named Jessica, I assume from Cincinnati, who wanted to ask me a question but couldn't find an e-mail to reach me personally.  
     Jessica, this brings up a good point.  I don't have an e-mail listed where people can drop me lines for certain things.  That's my fault.  I should have one up and running here shortly I hope.  There are going to be some exciting new changes coming to Big Dave and Company soon and that will most definitely be part of them.  So look forward to that.
     But the main point of her comment was to ask my permission to reference and quote parts of my post Chili Con Genius on an exciting new website that she is part of called Cheese Coney.com.  Cheese Coney.com is a celebration of the phenomenon known as Cincinnati chili.  I love this idea.  I was sort of confused by the name because I know many friends from Michigan who have introduced me to Coney Island restaurants and Coney Dogs, hell, PePe even worked for years at a Coney Island.  And I am originally from Wisconsin, which has "America's Dairyland" on the license plates, and where all cheese comes from.  So I was confused. I didn't know if this was supposed to be a website about me and my friends coming together in a wonderful working relationship or what.  But once I saw a little bit about what this CheeseConey.com site was all about I was all in.  Chili is delicious.  Cincinnati chili is even more so.  And if there is about to be cheese involved somehow it is even more yet.  This is just getting better and better the farther on I go.  And it's making me hungry.
    But the bottom line is that CheeseConey.com is cool with me, and the people who are putting it together are cool with me too.  If there can be a New York Donut Report blog there should be a website devoted to Cincinnati chili.  So good for them.  We here are Big Dave and Company are willing to help you in any way that we possibly can.  I have provided a link to the site both here and in my links section, and I will definitely be looking forward to seeing what you have to offer once you go live sometime here in July.

P.S.   I didn't even need the spell check to spell Cincinnati correctly.  That's got to be worth something, right?

It figures that you would get your recognition in life from a post about cheese (and chili). I am glad to see that being from Wisconsin has finally paid off!
