Huh.   ESP.   I'm doing a small Mississippi Roast tonight and will incorporate some of your upgrades.    Thanks.

There's a commercial in our area of a schlub who asks his neighbor if he has a rec for a good contractor.    Told yes, he asks neighbor to propose his project, get estimates and starting times.


Today I told an old friend that we had just switched phone and internet service with help of our techy son.     She responded, "Ask XXXX what would work for me. I have AT&T for most of it, but the store line(2) all are multifunction. One is the phone and the alarm. The other is the visa machine & the fax. The cell is AT&T because it has to be GSM 4 band for my French chip, although I often just use another phone now, and the internet is U-verse, which is getting slower & slower."


'Bye, love....

Cranberry beans, ground pork, poblano and green chilis, half a can green enchilada sauce, of course onions and garlic.

Right.  It's complicated when you go to a place like Frenchette (or, God forbid, Le Coucou) (no, that hasn't happened to me yet) with a group of four or six and everyone wants to share, and they all look at you like some kind of eccentric grouch when you say that they can but you won't.

This hotel model works well for those who want clean, basic, well serviced lodging but don't need faux luxe or party atmosphere public areas.    Reminds me of cherished Chelsea Inn in NY.    We used to book a one-bedroom first floor suite, directly across from reception.    Wonderful location on W.17th between (then) Gap and Barney's, 5 minutes to City Bakery, a few more to Union Square FM.   Great buses on 5th and 6th.
