London Log: Day 1
London Log Day 1 We had a seamlessly easy
trip across the pond from Portland to Seattle to London. Our first glimpse was
of the London Eye along the River Thames. I cried. I have dreamed about going
here for so many years that it is really a dream come true...

Wow, I love that Google now has a timer where you just type in "Timer 15 minutes," and it automatically will start a timer for you for that time! Woohoo! Freewriting just got even easier for me. It has been a while since I did a "no agenda" freewrite, but i...

London Log: Day 2
What a day! Of course, I woke up extra, extra early. I waited for George to wake up, and we were out of the room by 5:15 and on a bus to Abbey Road!  I wanted to get there to take the iconic picture before rush hour. It was great to take our first Double De...

I think home was safe for the most part. My parents loved me. I especially felt very safe when I was very young, but then when I started having opinions and gaining any sort of independence, my mom resented that. She would always condemn me later on in life...

27. The Jungle Book (Book 1) by Rudyard Kipling and narrated by Librivox (Version 3)
If you read my last entry, you know that I listened to another narration, but it was all the Mowgli stories and not the true The Jungle Book (Book 1). So, I decided to listen to the Librivox one, and it is SO COOL because there is this woman from Belgium (E...

Emiko is a gifted massage therapist who cares about her patients. She is very good at deep tissue and trigger point massage. She tries to get to the underlying issues behind why her patient is experiencing pain. I am sitting here pain-free today after a great one hour massage.

I LOVED the food. The two stars are for the service. I usually go for lunch, and the servers then are excellent. The restaurant was practically empty. We thought that was great. Maybe it is because we are not dinner regulars. Our area had no one. She came promptly and asked for drink orders and was going to come back with a sample for us, but she never came back. She never brought us a bread basket. She never came back to get our order. We waited and waited, and I kept looking for her as two other couples and a family filled in our section. I kept thinking that maybe she forgot about the sample; but I think she totally forgot about us. She did appear with many drinks and bread baskets for all the other tables who had arrived long after us. I saw her coming toward us with at least a bread basket, but she put the sample of the drink that I thought she had forgotten and turned her back to us to give the much later arriving couple a bread basket, salads, and wine when she had not even taken our order! I asked her, "Can we please order?" She almost acted surprised. I had to beg for the bread basket too. We overheard the manager in training talking to one of those couples who had come in long after us, and she said, "I like to talk to all the regulars." So I am thinking we are not regular enough to get service. When I finally complained to the hostess and eventually to the manager who asked us how our meal has been, they bent over backward and were quick about everything; but the waitress never apologized and never gave an explanation for why she ignored us. The manager was very nice. He took off things from our meal charges, he said, "She obviously messed up," but I am still sitting at home wondering why she disappeared. We have decided we need to ask for bread right away to get things rolling, clarify that indecision about a drink choice does not mean we do not want to order and give them our order while we have them because they may not come back. It was one of the strangest service experiences I have ever had. I have never had to beg so hard for everything. Kudos to the very nice manager and hostess. The waitress was also sweet-natured, but explanations are always helpful in these kinds of situations. I have to let it go and quit wondering.

Dr. Carr is fabulously caring and her nurse is super great too. They called me within a few days to tell me my results of the tests that were taken. In the day of managed care, she is great!

It was great! They even have nice cheeses in their deli case for making great sandwiches. Jeff's family goes way back, and he knows so much about the history of the area! If you go to Cross Fork, this is a "must stop" place!

I went to another tea room this woman owned in Corvallis, and I was so sad when she sold it to a new owner who just did not have the same scones! I was delighted to walk into the Ivy Garden last month and see that this owner has come back to the area to bless us with her famous scones! YEAH!
