Hey, Straight Talk. Elegant process you have there. So simple. So easy.
Hint to others: The online process doesn't work. Emailing the information doesn't work. Save yourself some time and call the customer service number. I have gone through this twice, and it is the only way to connect service, get numbers ported, etc.

Wait. What? They said bruschetta correctly in an Olive Garden ad? 
Noice!

So, the Google Play Store has a new search mode - People. You can snoop around and see what people in your circles have gotten from the store lately.
Odd that there are so many "iPeople" on the list with no activity at all. (Many Google employees among this group, too.)
And why are non-people pages doing on there? They won't have any activity at all. Ever.

Jimmy Carter on Colbert tonight, explaining a picture of all the ex-Presidents, in which he stands at some remove from the others:
"In the south we don't get all that close to other men."
Well said, Jimmy. Well said.

The trick is to view the service as "charming." Whatever it takes to get to the food is well worth your effort and forbearance. Good stuff going on on here. Very good. And the service is not as much bad as "amateurish." And the root of "amateur" is the French form of "love." (Look it up.)

Lovely place with a surprising amount of personality. They could sit back and let the tourists keep the place going, but they work hard to make it a place worth coming back to. Had two great meals here when we lived in NYC. It was always special.

I have stayed here a few times in the past, and I enjoyed it. The location works for me, and the people there are very nice. Housekeeping staff are thorough and polite, and the people upstairs in the restaurant go out of their way to make visitors feel comfortable and cared for. Well, this pattern took a bit of a hit last weekend. Everybody else was great, as usual, but there is a new person at the front desk who really sets a negative tone for the operation. Her name is Chelsea, and she pretty much defines the words "officious," "self-important," and "unpleasant." If you go, maybe you can find someone else to check you in. Even if the other line is much longer, you won't be sorry.

I finally made it to Morrisville to eat lunch at Peppers. Glad I did, too! The place is bright, clean, and well laid out. The food is varied and of excellent quality. The staff are pleasant and helpful. The only bad thing I can think of to say is that they are not any closer than they are. I want a Peppers in my neighborhood!

I was a little leery of a restaurant that looks a bit like a tourist trap, but this place worked out great! The food and decor were a cut about what I expected, and the staff were efficient and friendly. One note: It is a little hard to get to. You can see it from the main road, but you have to wind around a few back streets to get to it. I'd say it's worth it!

Had another great meal at Watts Grocery last night. Everything was spot-on. I especially appreciated the help we got with the wine list. So many places don't help the staff help the customer, but not here. One oddity: They don't have a salad of the usual greens. They had a pea shoot salad, though, and it was excellent. It's been a while since I've been there. Have they expanded the dining area, of has it always extended this far to the rear?
