I would think that Washington's would have something to do with hippies and salmon...some of why I left....

I'm a little hippy (in the broad sense of the word) and love a good blackened salmon. What's Dilling try to say? ha ha ha ha ha

I expected New Jersey's motto to be New York's. I didn't have HBO so I'm not sure where the Soprano's was but I always assume New York. At least that's where is it filmed.

Love these-they were good.
