When in Berkeley, EAT HERE!

When in Berkeley, EAT HERE!

ohmygodohmygodohmygod!!! Cathy and I are in Berkeley to see Peter Mulvey at the Freight and Salvage tonight. While driving around looking for somewhere to eat dinner (and the BART station for pictures) we stumbled across ‘Fellini’ on the corner of Acton and University. An unassuming place on the outside but interesting on the inside.

Classic film posters, strong colors. Pretty cool place. But the icing on the cake was when we were choosing our drinks. With the antibiotics I’m currently on I skipped the wine this time and started right with the sodas. Ohmygodohmygodohmygod… They serve SPRECHER root beer!!!!! The first restaurant I’ve found outside of Wisconsin that does. [thud] picking up my jaw I quickly ordered. The waiter was equally enthusiastic. Cathy CAN drink so she chose the ‘Arrogant Bastard Ale’. quite good. Dinner consisted of mushroom risotto with asparagus in a cream sauce for me. Cath had the ‘gypsy salad’.

When in Berkeley… Eat here! You won’t be sorry. Cath and I recommend the roasted asparagus appetizer. Delicious!

Caden Michael

I’m a DOUBLE Uncle today!!! Caden Michael is now amongst those of us who can see the Sun. (Yeah, I’m REALLY mushy. <grin>) Here are a few pictures…

HAH!!! Cathy had this to say…


“he looks like he can walk already”

“look at his hands!”

A few stats.

  • 10lbs 3oz – and he was a week early! my sister knows how to cook ’em. Noah was big too. Not THIS big though.
  • 22 inches

BTW – Don’t be offended by Cathy’s first remark. Don’t get all Jesusy on us. 🙂 It’s from “Rescue Me“, a BRILLIANT show starring the BRILLIANT Denis Leary.

family mobile technology tips

“ICE” could save your life

This is really good to know.

Paramedics will turn to a victim’s cell phone for clues to that person’s
identity. You can make their job much easier with a simple idea that they
are trying to get everyone to adopt: ICE.

ICE stands for In Case of Emergency.

If you add an entry in the contacts list in your cell phone under ICE, with
the name and phone no. of the person that the emergency services should call
on your behalf, you can save them a lot of time and have your loved ones
contacted quickly. It only takes a few moments of your time to do.

Paramedics know what ICE means and they look for it immediately. ICE your
cell phone NOW!

Please pass this one along.
