Veteran’s day

Salute to veterans, a late post, but only because I haven’t gotten into the habit of recording everything in a blog.

Brothers in arms (and sisters too these days) health, wealth and joy to you all.


Twists and turns of fate.

So Friday, whilst walking from the bus stop to the boat, I sprained my ankle, again. After spraining it just over a week ago, and not fully recovered, I go and do it again, and worse yet. Bah! Now I hobble around like a three legged peccary. This better heal soon.

Done some Dim Sum

•November 11, 2006 • Leave a Comment

November’s monthly Dim Sum was to the The Vegetarian Bistro on King street in the international district. Was a little cautious about vegetarian dim sum, but it worked out really well, despite being a confirmed meatatarian, I didn’t find myself craving dead animal bits. The salt and pepper tofu was great, in fact, of the roughly dozen dishes we had (there were eight of us in attendance this time) only one, the pumpkin cake was greeted with less than complete satisfaction. Worked out to about $11 per person, including a tip, the most expensive of the dim sums so far, but well worth the cost.

Good service, and the staff were cheerful and helpful. We’ll return.

Hello? is this thing on?
