And a new Nathan's Hot Dog Champion is made! Joey Chestnut brings the title back to the U.S.A.! It was a dog fight to the end with reigning champion Takeru Kobayashi, but Kobayashi had a "reversal" with 5 seconds left. The end numbers....Joey downed 66 hot dogs and buns in 12 minutes. Kobayashi 63.

The Mustard Belt returns to America. The previous Coney Island record of 54 hotdogs was shattered.

I think I could eat 5 or 6 in that time.

Columbia County didn't exist and was part of the larger Dutchess County
I've been to the Dutchess County Fair a time or two. My Dad used to design and make hooked rugs, and he won a First Place ribbon once for one of his rugs at the Dutchess County Fair.

Not bad, considering Kobayashi is suffering the ill effects of a lock-jaw type condition, and didn't know if he could compete at all this year.

Happy 4th to all from me, too. Here in the Washington, DC area, the keyword again seems to be "security" with 19 security checkpoints set up on The Mall for those wanting to see the show and fireworks near the Washington Monument. Rain possible here, too, later in the afternoon.

We have nothing special planned for today but being grateful to live in such a great country. Happily, we don't feel grateful just once a year!

The Dutchess County Fair - isn't that a great event? The Columbia County Fair was our big thing to do over Labor Day but it pales in comparison to what Dutchess did.

For those wondering, these are fairs where (at least the last time I went) they had the contests for the rugs, the preserves, the pies, old tractor displays, etc. Very much an Americana - Mayberry kind of thing.

My favorite is the jalapeno record - 247 pickled jalapeno peppers in 8 minutes by Richard LeFevre. Imagine what those post-eating bathroom visits must have been like.
