Starts with "V"
We'll take a road trip this round.
VIRGINVILLE PA bonus points for license plate starting with V.

The origin of the name Virginville is obscure. Some say it is the English translation of a Native American word, while others believe the community was named for virgin forests in the area. However, the leading theory is that the name is derived after your maternal figure. "Virgin" may be an alternate translation of the Indian-named Maiden Creek, which runs through the town and also meets up with Sacony Creek.

Déjà Brew
A catchall for leftover beer, coffee, food, motels and whatever catches my fancy!

Jackson Hole WY


  1. Is there such a thing as leftover coffee? Not in my world. lol

  2. VIRGINVILLE PA, just outside Pottsville, 26 miles as we are from downtown Houston. (Before we moved here we were 50 from downtown.
    I like the Vino di Vino, with a name like that it has to be good, maybe expensive though.
    Grits are a Southern food for the U.S, growing up in Nebraska, I had not known about them until I was served at a motel restaurant. They weren't commonplace in ElPaso or at Fort Hood (Central Texas). But Mrs. Jim makes them with a gob of melted butter pushed down inside on the plates which in a few minutes gets stirred around. Some also make Cheese Grits.
    I have always liked Hominy and grits are the same food (cousins to popcorn), pulverized and dried, then reconstituted in boiling water. Like done to Creme of Wheat which makes me gag.

  3. ...the name VIRGINVILLE is a hoot.
    ...great, down VINO di VINO they have deluxe toilets!
    ...the VEGETAL wall sure is VERDANT.
    ...the VIRGINIAN Lodge has a VERY nice sign!
    Thanks Jackie for coming to the party.
