The Stinking Rose or the Gilroy Garlic Festival will be respite care enough for me :-)

Don't talk to me about pain -- I'm married -- sorry, what were we talking about?

Attention Karen: Can't you make EELive a month later?  Or get hold of the Gilroy Garlic Festival and tell them you'll have a bunch of hungry garlic-mad engineers in the area and get them to make theirs a month earlier?  (or compromise - each of you move 2 weeks.... :-)

@Max....Well I guess that since, to my horror and consternation, the Gilroy Garlic Festival is a month away from EELive 2015, that will have to be Plan B......  For you to like it they would have to serve garlic flavoured bacon and beer??  (Not garlic flavoured beer....just the bacon....)

Antedeluvian - "sardines and condensed milk"

That sounds positively disgusting. Fortunately, I haven't experienced it. However, I have been forced to consume condensed milk and canned oysters. I'm sure it's no less stomach churning.

Don't do anything rash -- you've been married for a long time -- having your wife locked up in a mental health facility may not be the best solution in the long run.

@David: You sound like a man after my own heart, sir!

If you are ever in San Francisco, there's a really good restaurant called The Stinking Rose that features garlic in every dish (there's a sign on the door saying "No Vampires Allowed)
