A refresher on the Differences between 'Brie' and Camenbert" cheeses

On Cheese: After a recent exchange with a friend who is a chef, I went back to checking the differences between BRIE and CAMEMBERT . To put it briefly they come from different regions, camembert from Normandy and Brie from Ile de France, think of it as the difference between Burgundy and Rhone wines. One of my favorite Web Sites which I used for this piece is French Cheese UK as besides the cheese description, they give you the best wine and bread pairing.

Want to take a Longer Vacation, Try 'Digsville'

A fellow New Jersey entrepreneur, Helen Bergstein, is the soul of DIGSVILLE , a home and hospitality exchange service.
Their tag line is: "Where smart folks spend a little to travel a lot more". The idea is that you swap your residence for someone else's home, therefore reducing the cost of your stay a great deal.
You can choose people whose profile is compatible with yours in areas such as neatness, space and so forth.
Their website is very user friendly. Type the name of the country where you plan on going and choices available come up.
In order to use the service there is a membership fee.
Take a look.
