I always think of my Uncle Jimmy when I listen to this song; how he so carefully tended viola until she died. Not the subject of the song but it works when I hear it. +jimmy dietrich​

Wonderfully said.
In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, she takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way.

At first you think I'm something I'm not.
Introduction
I'm Don, Donny, don, donaldo, ducky, don juan, don jr, Dr. Fun, Bean(y), dad(dy), pop(py)/(op).
I am a freak.  I'm a deadhead.  I'm a dad.  I take your photo. I cook the dinner, I make the cocktails, and I work locally to make my world a place more beautiful.

If you circle me here, be advised I have nothing to sell, nothing I believe, and am convinced that one shouldn't even be convinced. But I'm full of love, full of sorrow, full of desire to be here now.
Bragging rights
I have an instinct for a certain aesthetic. It won't win any awards but it will make you smile, get you tipsy, or taste really good. Anything more than that is not what I'm really doing.

A bit noisy and busy for me. Food was pretty good, not any problems.

Still pinching myself to have found this. Sometimes amazing food is close to home smack dab in the middle of the sterile mound of state-street Utah. We went for lunch. We were warmly treated. The room was peacefully comfortable. The service was perfect. But the food was absolutely fantastic. I'll be back.

A rare treat. The lightly breaded veal over penne and spinach really killed me. Fantastic waitress (thanks V.), beautiful ambiance. If it wasn't for the Rochester cold and the distance I'd eat there tonight.

When you deal with chains it's all about the people who work there. My experience is competent animal loving people. And sometimes you find greatness.

Oh yeah. This is where I'm going to eat several times on my next trip to Rochester. Great place, great people, great ambiance (can you say that about a place like this?) and above ALL, great ribs.
