Lived at 974 Davisville Rd. on a farm that no longer exists -- now all just houses. Left PA when I joined the Navy in 1976. Went to Centennial Elementary, Klinger Jr. High, then William Tennet. Warminster used to be a small farming community that was just starting to see suburban encroachment from all the folks moving out of Philly. Mr. Hoy's pig farm next to us sold and that became Lamplighter Village. You could buy a brand new, two story colonial style home there for between 12 and 17k in the early 70's. Hard to imagine, huh?

My dad was stationed at NAS Johnsville, then Willow Grove for awhile when he wasn't out to sea. Last time I saw Johnsville, it wasn't even a base anymore. Warminster was a great place to grow up --- at least then!

As I kid I used to ride my bike up to Dark Hollow to fish Neshaminy Creek nearly every weekend. Loved that place!!!

[quote=CJS;3250367]WTF is it with calling sauce, gravy? My GP's on my
Mothers side were 110% Sicilians, right off the boat
and if you had called Gracie's sauce "gravy", She
would have broken the wooden spoon over your head,
and then hit you again with the short piece just to make sure
you got the point. "Gravy" is something you make from pan drippings
and put on Roast Beef or Turkey .The only place I've ever heard it called "gravy"





If it is with Italian/pasta it is typically red in color and called sauce.
Oh and with fish, it's sauce.
If it is with beef, turkey or chicken then it is gravy where I come from.


But call it what you will, lets get back to what you can't refuse.....food wise....

Maybe you can both have your grandmothers fight each other with wooden spoons over this. We could make a reality show out of it.
