Dinner and The Librarians

I had dinner at Nevanka and Lal’s house tonight. Nevanka cooked Sri Lankan and everything was wonderful, but a bit spicy. Well spicy for this Minnesotan palate (I had emailed her earlier in the week reminding her that spicy will kill me and she did not cook anything spicy!). It was also wonderful to see […]

Riddle Room, part 2

Not being a morning person and having to get up every morning to open at 9am was not very fun. Luckily we had some wonderful family and friends that […]
