For breakfast today at this place www.squareonedining.com/ I had brioche french toast with vanilla whipped cream and grade A maple syrup. Oh yeah and a cup of delicious coffee. The coffee they serve is from this place www.intelligentsiacoffee.com/
While in the library at my school I had to snap this photo of my school from the 40's. It is amazing how much has changed in this area since then. There is no freeway, there are horse stables that were a part of the campus, yet the amazing thing is the main buildings are intact and look exactly the same. Very cool!!!
Sunday excursion to the Apple Store. I just had to snap this photo and luckily for me, or not, the guy on the right looks very pleased with me taking a photo in the Apple Store. I had heard they do not want photos taken in the store. Oh well at least I am not criticizing them. The "genius" who helped me was very gracious and yes, helpful.
While have lunch at this wonderful place www.beacon-la.com/ I had to snap a photo of the dessert. The other items I ate were very good as well, but this one was my favorite. Banana crunch cake with chunks of banana, chocolate fudge sauce, and vanilla bean gelato.
Second of two birthday cakes. This is is quite different than the other. Red velvet cake, with cream cheese frosting. The flowers are sugar flowers and the little buttons on the side are hard candies. I may move up to 3 cakes for next year.
Even though my birthday was yesterday another traditional thing I do is have more than one cake and enjoy it over the next few days. I had this one yesterday, but did not cut it until today. Chocolate cake, with chocolate fudge frosting, and chocolate chips in the cake. Mmm chocolate!!
So every year for my birthday I take a small drink of this high end scotch/whiskey. I have been doing it at the exact time of my birth for the past 10 years. Always have it served up neat with a glass of ice water on the side.
