Shakespeare was not a big fan of winter! I totally agree! Thumbs down

"I, that did never weep, now melt with woe
That winter should cut off our spring-time so."

"For never-resting time leads summer on
To hideous winter and confounds him there;
Sap cheque'd with frost and lusty leaves quite gone,
Beauty o'ersnow'd and bareness every where."
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” – Leo F. Buscaglia

Robin:
As you can guess, we haven't eaten out much lately but I did visit Som Siam last month. When too lazy to go it from scratch at home, I resort to Wanchai Ferry and P.F. Chang frozen dinners.

A Thai place opened up here in my small town......husband & wife duo from Thailand. I've tried it once....it was good, but portions were small for the price.....will try it again in a few weeks.

I don't like that in any type of restaurant. I want plenty of food!

I like to get what I pay for....prices were too high for that, but I notice quite a few cars in their parking lot.....maybe things have improved, so I will try it again.
