This is funny.

Oh... And bappy hirthday to me... I'm a quarter century old. My family got together for dinner last night at Valentines [maps.yahoo.com]. It's one of my favorite places to eat in Springfield. It has great atmosphere, very contemporary and the food is delicous. I recommend the rib eye steak.

My first choice for my birthday dinner, however, is Tong's, but Tong doesn't work on Sunday.

Here's a followup story on the grave sites found on some O'Reilly Auto Parts property. Looks like it all works out in the end as the company has donated the land (in exchange for reimbursement of work done to it) and is looking for a new location.

I forgot to mention in my last post that my wife and I have removed my last usable excuse for not doing aerobic exercise and purchased a treadmill. So far the streak is 1 day of waking up and using it!

Well my two faithful readers are probably wondering if I will ever update this thing. So here goes.

First Chris e-mailed me the name of that Vietnamese restaurant. It's called the Pho Grand and I highly recommend it to everyone. My wife, a coffee connoisseur, loved the Vietnamese coffee and still talks about the 15.02 (menu items are numbered for ordering ease).

Second, happy belated Thanksgiving. I've got a lot to be thankful for this year including but not limited to my loving wife and my wonderful family and friends.

Look soon for an entry explaining the story of Dobie. It should be a good read. Until then rescue a loving soul at petfinder.com.
