What's In A Name?

Did you know that Hendrix changed his name twice? He was born Johnny Allen (his Dad later changed it to James Marshall) Hendrix.

Later, just before heading off to England, his manager, Chas Chandler urged him to change the spelling of his first name to Jimi.

Thanks for the share +Caroline Chiasson​ and h/t to +Oleg Moskalensky​.

How to Make Butter

For someone who loves butter as much as I do, you'd think I would know more about it. Who knew people other than farmers could make butter?

Whenever I'm in South Florida it's always a joy and delight to visit Joy's Roti Delight. Extensive menu with lots of delicious selections and it probably has the best authentic "Trini" cuisine outside of Trinidad and Tobago. If you enjoy "Trini" food or never had it, I would highly recommend this restaurant.

An extremely popular Chinese restaurant located on the second floor of the Long Circular Mall. The food served here is excellent and the wait staff are cordial and courteous. Their Wednesday night All-you-can-eat buffet is very popular as well as their Dim Sum Sunday brunch. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

The Pollock Tropical branch locations in South Florida served much better food. I figured that since this local restaurant is part of the franchise, the food will be consistent, wrong! I had rice, peas and chicken and it was very bland, I was not impressed. Will not be going back.

Spring 44 has a superb collecting of some of the finest spirits. Their Honey Vodka will simply blow you away. It's by far, some of the best Vodka I've ever tasted. Try it and you won't be disappointed.

Today, I had one of the best taco and cocktail experiences in my life! Alex the manager/bartender definitely has the "Midas touch" because everything he mixes is 'golden'. Chef Serena is top shelf, her food is simply #awesomesauce !! Whenever, I'm in the Longmont Colorado area again, this restaurant is on the top of my list for superb Mexican food.

I went here to renew my US passport and the experience was very fast and efficient. The only hiccup was my cellphone. Before going into the embassy, you are required to go to an establishment, one block west from the embassy, and leave your phone there. You also have to pay them a non-refundable TT$10.00 for holding your phone.
