Saw this several days ago and laughed. Thought about it while I was attempting to clear the driveway today and cried.

Well so what? I went to Oxford! It was just a short drive from Bracknell really. I poked around. Took in the sights. Snapped some pictures. It was a nice day all told.

Could be. That might explain the utterly senseless panic.

"When asked what he did to nurture his daughter into such a fierce advocate for Women's rights, Ziauddin says, 'ask me what I did not do, I did not cut her wings.'"

Words for fathers of daughters everywhere to live by.

The question remains, how do we encourage more men to be advocates for the women in their lives?...

If only 1950s SciFi/horror movie makers had known about this stuff :-)

A wonderful place to go and have dessert with friends or family, or to go alone and sit with a cup of coffee and a book. Their handmade ice creams and gelati are the best I have ever had in Minnesota. The dining area is family-friendly and bright, outside with a patio overlooking the pond, or inside with a fireplace, a bookshelf, and even board games. Occasional local live music and the local art hanging for sale on the wall give it a sort of "city neighborhood cafe" atmosphere, a welcome change from the usual pre-packaged, strip mall, suburban dining.

In three years, I have never had a bad meal here. The sandwiches, quiches, and entrees are all mouth-watering, the desserts and pastries are amazing, and the atmosphere is friendly and inviting. They offer intimate live music shows, typically jazz, on the weekends. A first rate casual french dining experience, not clubbish or stuffy or expensive.

Not a fan. The food is passable, but the service is awful.

Excellent value for a unique pizza experience. They build the pizza to spec while you watch (a la Chipotle), from a wide ranging set of sauces and ingredients. I particularly appreciate that they have gout-friendly turkey pepperoni, so that I can enjoy an old favorite without having to pay the price in arthritis pain the next day.

Great Chipotle experience. Friendly and attentive staff. Clean, well-stocked dining area. Excellent management. Not as much wood-and-aluminum "post-modernism" as you see at a classic Chipotle restaurant, but I really don't miss it much. On busy weeks when the family hardly has time to say "hi-bye", I am a 2-or-3 night regular.

We have been regulars here since we moved into the area in 1990. We have never had any of the problems that I have seen in other reviews here. Delivery, take out, and dining in have always been positives for us. The family owners are friendly and attentive, the food is great (the sesame chicken and orange chicken are particular favorites of mine), the dining area is clean, quiet, and intimate.

Unique specialty pizzas and excellence in the old favorites too. Delivery is fast and friendly. Dining in leaves something to be desired though; the dining area is clean and well-kept, but a bit cramped.
