“DRIGGS, Idaho – Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann on “Gilligan’s Island,” is serving six months’ unsupervised probation after allegedly being caught with marijuana in her car.

She was sentenced Feb. 29 to five days in jail, fined $410.50 and placed on probation after pleading guilty to one count of reckless driving.”

(From Yahoo)

Incidentally, for those keeping score, Driggs, Idaho is approximately 120 miles from Preston, Idaho, the location for the movie Napoleon Dynamite. It also happens to be 100 miles (or so) from where I grew up.

This just in… jamon iberico is now available to be imported…  See Marc Fleury’s blog for the scoop.

At $70/pound it certainly is a bit steep, but I have to admit that the last time I ate any, it was simply fantastic.  It’s a good thing friends are willing to smuggle things like this back from Espana.
