It's always nice to have a no-expectations, casual discussion area.  Glad this thread can fulfill those needs.

Im glad lentels and bread are not excluded in fasting, or I'd be in aheap of trouble...but maybe a little less gassy.

brands of crackers include lard], rennet [used in some yogurts], etc.)
Category II Dairy Products (includes butter, eggs, milk, cheese, etc. as well as items containing dairy whey,
and milk extracts such as casein and sodium caseinate, etc.)
Category III Fish (includes sardines, tuna, trout, bass, shark, pike, etc., but not shellfish such as lobster,
shrimp, crab, oysters, scallops, clams, mussels, etc.)

Why did you have to post something substantive on this thread?!  Anathema!

Caroline County is the only land locked county in MD.
... but not the only irrelevant one!
Tada! 
But what about Allegany County, is that not a landlocked county?
Silly me, I should have added Eastern Shore to the original question.  Forgive me for my error.

In Central and Western MD - every county except the ones which front the Chesapeake Bay or the tidal Potomac/Patuxent are landlocked.  Example, Howard County is landlocked but not Prince George's County.  A landlocked county can have a river border with another county.

Allegany in NY?  Allegany in MD?  Or have you misspelled the county in which Pittsburgh lies?

My dearest Cleveland, glorious manager and member of oc.net.

I meant Allegany County, MD.  Not the Allegheny County, PA nor the Allegany County, NY.

Someone once told me that Allegheny was the French way of spelling it and allegany was the british.  Remember the French and Indian War and Ft. Pitt, Brits versus the French...  in allegheny county and Pennsylvania proper the French spelling remains the norm.

I thought so... but hey, giving people a hard time can be so fun!

That's because that part of PA was French territory before it was British territory.  And it was Ft. Duquesne before it was Ft. Pitt; that would have been a more apropos name for the 'Burgh, and less likely to be made fun of ("U of Pit" - c'mon!).

Another interesting thing are the words Juniata and Oneida.  The Oneida are Native Americans that now live in NY. Juniata, like the Juniata River in PA is the word Oneida in the language of a neighboring First nations people in NY.  I can't remember which one, but it was one of the 5 tribes of the confederacy.
