[at-l] Update on FRIED TWINKIES

My little girl Hannah and I went to "Mumfest" over the weekend.  Mumfest
is a neat local fair here in New Bern, NC with rides, games, crafts,
music, and lot's of the kind of food that is good to eat, but not
necessarily good for you . . . I am happy to report that the fried
twinkie made its debut at Mumfest this year! :)
