Food Flavored Song of the Day: Need You Now by Peppercorn
On the Wednesday nearest April 23rd the Masonic Lodge of St. George (Number 200) pays its annual rent for using the Old State House as a meeting place. The ceremony consists of a parade, gun salute and the governor arriving in a fancy carriage to accept the payment. What does a meeting house like this cost? Why a single peppercorn perched on a silver plate which is on top of a velvet cushion of course.
I'm currently drafting a letter to governor asking him to consider "Need You Now" by Peppercorn as the ceremony's permanent theme song. The two seem made for each other.
