Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, the, uh, establishment was Salt Wells.  I don't know anything about it, but it was frequently mentioned in jokes.  

btw, I couldn't help but notice the ivy in your driveway.  Is it considered a bad thing in your neck of the woods?  Here, they refer to it as "English ivy" and it's listed as an invasive species.  People have been trying for years to get Home Depot and various garden centers not to sell it.  It just goes crazy in our climate and chokes trees to death.  Seems like a losing battle, though -- it's everywhere.

Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding. -Hobbes

Yes, it is invasive.  It got ripped out a few years ago and needs it again.  Probably will take out the two bay trees that it is climing because they seem to be vectors for the stuff that is killing the oaks around here.  

Good eye.
