F-221 becomes the Tabernacle

We had the children assemble themselves into the outline and furniture of the Tabernacle. This was part of our review day for the end of Exodus. What a joy to be with them every week.

Non-Service Station

I stopped for gas this morning and was treated to yet another downgrade in service and convenience. First you could pay at the pump and it was good. Then you could pay at the pump IF you entered your ZIP code, it was less good. Now for even more fun, you may pay at the pump with you credit card IF you enter your ZIP code, and IF you want less than 35 dollars worth of gas.

With gas at $3.40 a gallon and most cars holding at least 11 gallons, this will force most people inside to make their purchase, or put in less than 35 dollars, put the hose back, and make a second purchase.

Customers first at Texaco. I'll go somewhere else for gas.

Lettuce Origami

The Pie N Burger also folds the lettuce so it fits cleanly under the bun. A lost art to be sure. They take extra care in putting the food together.

Today we broke with tradition and got pie too!

Pie N Burger

The greater Los Angeles area has many great places to get a burger. The Pie N Burger in Pasadena is one of the best (the other is Apple Pan on the West Side). Both have burgers and pie. The Pie N Burger has a bit more space, and the counter help give you more time to order. Just remember, dispite the name you must choose: pie or burger. The burgers are too big to also have pie. If you are in Pasadena and you're hungry stop in, near the corner of Lake and California.
