Thanks +Heather Turner , We may just stay in a hotel (UGH!) because my in-laws will also be meeting us there and my parent-in-laws have accessibility issues.  I'm looking at a Hampton Inn just north of Tyler about 5 miles right off of I-20. It's also close to where we will be attending the last family reunion on my wife's side of the fam.

I may be a bit behind on this, but has Google finally fixed the Blogger share issue?  I noticed today that the blog I had scheduled to publish actually published twice.  I know that for the longest time the only way that Blogger would publish on Google+ would be for a person to have to go in and manually click the 'Share' tab. Did Google finally make it easier on people like me so now we don't have to go in and do this every time that a schedule blog publishes?

This is a re-post from an article in Entrepreneur dating back to 2013, but it is worth the re-read every so often.
Our PR expert Ivan Ristic discusses how businesses should handle negative comments on social media and review sites like Yelp.

I have a question that I would like to put out to the group, and it may only really pertain to those in the U.S. but I would like to know what Innkeepers are thinking in regards to 'Medical Marihuana' use in their Inn.
Reason I am asking is as many people know, more and more states are now allowing the sale and use of marihuana regardless if it is for medical or recreational reasons.  It may be a mute point, but with the substance becoming more and more 'available' here in the states, are people going to start using it as a 'crutch' to say they have a medical reason for it, just so they can smoke it in your inn when in fact they just want to get 'high'.  We did have someone who brought their pipe and materials and even though they were outside on the deck, when they came in, I could smell it on them and the odor stayed in the house for a while which caused an issue with another guest who does not like smelling the stuff because of the fact it gave them a buzz.
I have updated our policies, not on our website yet but plan to do that this weekend, where we now specifically state that our No Smoking policy now includes 'Medical & Recreational Marihuana'.
Any other thoughts about it?

We are a non smoking facility so the no smoking rules would apply to pot smokers too of course.  I don't care what they do as long as they respect our policies.  We had a couple smoking pot in their room recently and we could smell it in the hallway, and we just let them know that they were breaking our non smoking policy.  Because they were feeling so "good" they came down in their pajamas for breakfast and did a couple of other things we were not accustomed to seeing at the b&b.  But all in all it ended well. They understood and no longer smoked in the house.

Oh, you only get to the "translator" part when you reply w a made-up total cost for the 6 delegates staying 7 days. Once I replied & he told me about the translator, I emailed back "you bet! I'd be happy to send you $6k. Did you need me to mail a check or send it via Western Union?" Mr. Felix was eager to give me the credit card #. Funny enough, as I replied to his email I noticed that I'd received an email from John Warren 2 weeks ago also seeking lodging for 6 delegates. What are the odds?! :D

This is my new toy.  Bought it just today and I am really looking forward to using it tomorrow.  Expected to get about 5-9 inches at a rate of at least 1" per hour.

As part of my rushed trip to SE Texas I chose to stay in the Branson area on the way back home and stayed at Anchor Inn on the Lake Bed and Breakfast. My wife and I booked the Virginia Room and the bedroom is spacious and has a large private bathroom. We found the mattress to be a bit firmer than we like, but we still had a restful sleep and woke up refreshed for the final leg of our journey. The breakfast the next morning was very delicious- we had a fruit salad with nuts to start and then we were served a quiche with biscuits and jam. We would recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone going to the area.

Shortly after moving to Columbia Missouri 9+ years ago, I found Mutrux Automotive on Rollins Road and have never gone anywhere else since when it comes to getting my cars worked on. From getting the DOT's safety inspection to major repairs, I do not feel comfortable letting anyone else do the work except Ross and his crew. They have a high level of integrity which is hard to find in mechanics. Recently I took my car in before a long road trip and Ross found some things that were important enough that they warranted being replaced immediately. Had he not told me before I went on my trip, I might have found myself in a very bad situation with a broken down car hundreds of mile away from home. Thank You Mutrux Automotive!

Went to Ranch House BBQ on January 18th 2014. First time and my wife and I are always looking for new places to eat so we can tell our Bed & Breakfast guest about them. This is the one that will be on our list of recommended restaurants. I had the 2 meats (sausage & brisket) along with Sweet Potato fries and Cole Slaw. Best BBQ meal in a very long time. The brisket was 'Melt in your mouth' tender and both meats had wonderful flavor. The fries were the best I have had and the Cole Slaw was not too sweet and not too vinegary. just right for me. My only complaint, not that it is important, was that the roll was a bit hard. At first look it looks soft but it took a bit to bite a piece off. I am not that much into bread so it is not a huge concern for me, but others if it happens to them it might be an issue. The atmosphere was great and the staff was very helpful. We will be going back again and again. Hopefully next time I will have room for the dessert.

Mike and Lisa of School House Bed & Breakfast are wonderful Innkeepers and go way above the call of duty when it comes to hospitality. Their Inn is exceptionally clean and the rooms are spacious. There are plenty of common area's for a person to spend time reading a book, relaxing or just passing the time away. The breakfast are delicious and very satisfying.

My wife and I spent the night of September 29th there and really enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and very will supplied with amenities. The breakfast was superb with garden fresh ingredients and very satisfying. We would recommend the Brick Inn Bed and Breakfast to anyone going to Washington Missouri.
