Sunday Already

I’m taking the day off today. We’ll returned to our regularly scheduled programming tomorrow. I think. Advertisements

Tasty Confusion

For me it was a new twist on pizza-making. I think I liked it. But it did take me aback at first. Do you see what they have done with this one? It was at Zeus 2, my favorite pizzeria in Germany. It is fairly new, an offshoot of Zeus Pizza which has been running […]

Haus Vetter (Cousin’s House) dates back to 1473, though I suspect there may have been an upgrade or two since then. Canadian houses aren’t expected to last that long. I’m wondering why […]
