Is a first impression a dangerous thing? A really inspired piece by +Robin Thornton. Spoiler alert: "relationships are built over time and with effort, no matter the first impression."

Hands down the best Indian food I have had in Cincinnati. Palak Paneer is very creamy, Saag Paneer is more hearty, spice level is fantastic (although their regular spiciness may be a little spicier than most are accustomed to, and their most spicy could be a little spicier IMHO). This place is a revelation, and their desserts are wonderful as advertised.

Being a novice to straight razor shaving, I couldn't help but feel taken advantage of by Lynn Abrams and Straight Razor Design. What it boils down to is that I got a poor razor that they in turn blamed me for. Five days after I purchased my razor online, I wrote to Lynn questioning the sharpening on the blade as well as some very concerning water marks on the blade. I told him that I used alcohol and mineral oil on the blade. His response was to advise against using alcohol and to get some Maas polish for the water marks. Neither of those took care of the marks, and his advice of course didn't make the blade any sharper (meanwhile I spent up to an hour at a time trying to shave with that blade). Finally I emailed him again and he told me to send it in for honing. Kind of disillusioned by the whole thing, I waited until July to send it in at which time Lynn informed me that he couldn't sharpen it because of deep pitting in the blade. He accused me of trying to hone the blade myself. The gist of it is that I'm out $150 because SRD thinks it's a reasonable argument that a novice straight blade user could shave with their "shave ready" blade without getting a decent shave anywhere or even a nick or cut. And then after saying as much, seeking their expertise, and paying for sharpening - they figure I tried to put an amateur hone on this instrument that I want to place on my face everyday. If that sounds like a reasonable explanation to you, buy from SRD without reservation. But if it sounds like this business would go so far as to impugn the reputation of its customers to avoid replacing a clearly defective product, then buyer beware. That said, Lynn is highly regarded in the straight razor shaving community and I expect that despite my poor experience with SRD that this experience is the exception rather than the rule. But if you do have an experience like mine, make sure to bring up your issues within the window where you can controvert through PayPal or credit cards.

We went to Amol on a whim and had the buffet. The saag paneer was the most delicious preparation of the dish that I have ever had (and I've had it a lot). They also had a beautiful sweet potato dish that was absolutely delicious. Everything else was pretty good, but these two standout dishes (in a buffet no less) reinforced our resolve to return!

We have had a lot of experience with different accountants throughout the years, but none compare to CPA Seattle and Erin Gilman. Their office manager, Karen is exceptionally prompt and thorough to schedule appointments and make sure that everything from the tax organizer to other documents are delivered early and completed appropriately. Erin is exceptionally helpful and fast. In our meetings with her, she has given us a rough estimate of our tax liability before we leave her office, and she has completed our taxes in a blink of an eye. I can't say enough great things about her or the staff at CPA Seattle - they are far and away the best accountants that we have ever had. I hope we never have to find another accountant, because the standard has been set so high for promptness and professionalism at CPA Seattle.

Amma's Kitchen is my favorite Indian restaurant in Cincinnati. Their food is cooked in a different style than many of the other Indian restaurants in town, and it seems much more nuanced, flavorful and elegant. My personal favorite dish is palak paneer. If you care for spicy food, they will increase the spiciness. Rather than using cayenne pepper they use actual hot peppers and it makes the food just as spicy but allows the flavor of the dish to shine through a little better. The naan is beautifully done, they are very generous with their chutneys (the mint chutney is a favorite). You must try the vegetable pakora when you visit, it is spiced deliciously and is nearly irresistible. The one dish that we've tried and not enjoyed is the coconut rice which is a little bland (try topping it with spicy palak paneer, though). Amma's Kitchen is a lovely place to eat and our go to when people are visiting from out of town.

I was driving through town cross country and had my check engine light go on. Marc Empert was super helpful in diagnosing the problem and letting me know what my options were. Really grateful to him.

Dr. Sayyah is an extraordinary dentist. I am petrified at the thought of going to the dentist, but he and his staff are so kind and thorough that I don't mind it too much! I can't say enough about the skillfulness of Dr. Sayyah - I just had cleanings and a filling and it couldn't have been any better. He is an extraordinary dentist with an extraordinary staff and I recommend him without reservation.
