Hello friends,
Does anyone know how to make an hour? Some days it seems I just need one more and I could get everything done. Other days a 100 more hours and I still wouldn't get everything done... But if I ever did, I think I would get real busy again taking on new challenges! Such is the nature!

This week for Thai Thursday Victor will be serving:
Cabbage salad
Steamed seafood packets
Sweet & sour pork
Green curry prawns
Steamed rice
Coconut ice-cream

All this, just $19.95. Those who prefer meat and potatoes can join their Thai dining friends with selections from our grill. (Steaks, Lamb, Chicken, a pasta for vegetarians...) See you soon!

Comedians wanted

In light of our recent success with the Murder Mystery and the great personal satisfaction I got out of "acting" I am going to continue in this direction. Next fall I think we will do an improve show and a comedy club. If there aren't enough comedians in Groveland to put on a dinner-comedy show, then maybe we can do a dinner-gong show!

Interested in working with me on this? Must be funny and quick on your feet! 209-962-6455.

Do frogs hybernate

So, in the evenings we enjoy a beautful concert by dozens of frogs singing their special song, but by day, where are they? We stomp around the same area, one would think we would hear a croak or two...Just curious.
