    Correction.  It was the Fall of 1977 at the earliest,
    but most likely early 1978 while it was still cold

I'm beginning to see a possible viable use for those *steam toy* espresso
machine wannabes! Don't have one but maybe worth picking up for a buck or
two just to play with eggs. MM;-)

The friend of mine who helped me start my coffeehouse had worked at the Rush,
and we 'lifted' a lot of ideas for menu items from the knowledge he already
had from working there.  I started my coffeehouse after classes let out in
the spring of '77.  The idea may have come from Tony White or his boss, Jim
Greenburg, and passed on to me or my friend Mark Pitts.  Steaming eggs may
not have been an original idea, I really don't remember.  I do clearly
remember developing the combination of ingredients to make the steamed egg,
cheese, Canadian Bacon, homemade English muffin sandwich (even though others,
I'm sure, somewhere else had most likely done it before me).
Heck, I'm not going to patent it anyway, so it's not a touchy subject at all.
BTW...Tony probably knows Mark Pitts, and if he knows where he is, I'd sure
like to renew contact with him.  He went to Harvard, and that's the last I've
seen of him.

    Not to you, or me, or Tony, or...   but I can't say that about
    everyone.   Tony claimed many things about himself :-) so
    maybe Jim really did come up with the original idea.   I'm not
    about to suggest otherwise (again) - I was only wondering if
    maybe (hoping?) there was some prior use on your part.
    I have lost touch with Tony as well...
