"Unattended children will be given espresso and a free kitten".
So reads the sign on the wall at Rowena Parade Corner Store in Richmond. I laughed out loud when I read this and will definitely be visiting just to meet the people who obviously share a similar sense of humour to me. Check out Little Eats review and I'm sure you'll be dropping in too.
It was Surfer Boy's 40th birthday during the week and tonight we are taking 40 family and friends to see his favourite movie. It may come as a surprise but his favourite film is the 1956 musical -
Not the movie anyone was expecting - except his family who are responsible for him knowing every word and song. Coming from a family with 4 sisters he was bound to be influenced and I for one am rapt that we are seeing this and not his second favourite film - PLATOON.
C.K. Dexter-Haven, a successful popular jazz musician, lives in a mansion near his ex-wife's Tracy Lord's family estate. She is on the verge of marrying a man blander and safer than Dex, who tries to win Tracy's heart again. Mike Connor, an undercover tabloid reporter, also falls for Tracy while covering the nuptials for Spy magazine. Tracy must choose between the three men as she discovers that "safe" can mean "deadly dull" when it comes to husbands and life.(IMDB)
Well we've managed to move our staircase without too much drama although I will admit I was close to chucking the whole thing. We're anticipating that within the next couple of days we will be clear of council for the foreseeable future - you can imagine how pleased I will be about that.
Surfer Boy even managed to find a place for the fridge in the re-design which pleases me muchly.
Me thinks we might get this thing built after all.
You may have seen this photo before but I couldn't resist posting it myself - Last month Licia Ronzulli, Italy's MEP, attended a voting session of European Parliament with her baby girl in order to draw attention to women's rights. What a great image.
I'm not big on Tacos but I sooo want to hang out at ROCKAWAY TACOS.
Chef Andrew Field is located in Rockaway beach, Queens, New York where he lives, surfs, reads, and cooks some of the best tacos in the area. He raises his own honey bees on his roof, grows all of his herbs and buys the bulk of his ingredients and vegetables from local farmers. This is a guy I'd love to meet - sounds like he has it all worked out.
