Good Eats

If there is one thing my family all has in common it is the love of good food. Something we discovered on our trip to Bigfork is that there are quite a few good restaurants in that area. Who knew such a place would have such great dining out options?

Dinner out with my folks usually includes wine. Wendy and my father have developed quite the rapport over bottles of wine. It usually results with Wendy being hungover the next day. Not on this trip, though. We ate more than we drank although we drank while we ate.

This photo was snapped in nearby Whitefish. I decided nearby in Montana constitutes anywhere one can travel in an hour or less. We dined at an interesting restaurant named Mambo Italiano. Fresh spinach layered in my lasagne? Score! I'm all about the fresh spinach, dontcha know.

It was The Boy's birthday. What the picture does not show are the other tables occupied by a bunch of his fellow actors and technicians. We were fortunate enough to meet many of them while we were there. Quite the boisterous crowd. One would be hard pressed to find a more melodious rendition of the "Happy Birthday" song.



Yes, my face is red. We'd had an outdoor adventure that day.

Oh and look! I'm wearing paisley!

You mock the fashion world with your paisley wearing! Thank Our Lady Of Guadalupe that you were in Mon-freakin-tana, population 55.

And where was your sunscreen? Hmmm? You went out without sunscreen. You're hopeless.

Your drunken bum, pie faced, ossified tip o'the day: Drink at least the equivalent of a wine bottle of water before going to bed to prevent the wine hangover.

Glad you had a good time with your peeps.

You look a lot like your dad -- and in some strange twist :) -- Wendy looks like she could be your mom's daughter :) Go figure -- or is it just in the photograph and not in real life?

I concur with Eyes for Lies. There is a close resemblance. Slap a pair of glasses on you, a lot of facial hair and viola!

Tivo, Internet Archive, and GlitchTV
Worship the Glitch has a great post about finding free MPEG2 content online to stream to your updated TiVo.
Nice to see some decent content for a change. FYI, I log on today and see that we've got a new feature, the 'Flag blog' button, which is inconveniently located between the 'Get Your Own Blog' and 'Next Blog' buttons so that we would presumably be getting some flags on error alone (although if one happens to notice it, you can unflag a blog) But that's a trivial matter. What concerns me is this: When a person visiting a blog clicks the "Flag?" button in the Blogger Navbar, it means they believe the content of the blog may be potentially offensive or illegal. We track the number of times a blog has been flagged as objectionable and use this information to determine what action is needed. This feature allows the blogging community as a whole to identify content they deem objectionable. Ok, see the problem with this? What's "objectionable. And there lies the problem: what is objectionable? Just my 2 cents, Contact Lens

What a lovely picture!

My friend, I take it back, you make paisley look good.

Actually, in two of my "highbrow" catalogs that I get, they have paisley clothing for the fall. Look at that, you are a trendsetter!
