Wild Fun at the Zoo

I went to the Cleveland zoo the other day with my son. It was our first time there. We were there about 2 hours, it was fun, but sad to see the animals in their unnatural habitats. I think Animal Kingdom at Disney does a much better job of creating a "real" environment for them to live in. And their slogan "notazoo" (spelled differently) is clever and catchy. I still don't advocate zoos, and think animals should be kept in their natural habitats.

When did Ohio become Florida?

It's in the 90's again today. I think it's in the 90's in Florida today too. As we approach mid-August, I can't help but wonder "Are we going to have a winter?" The winter of 04-05 was the worst in recent years and everyone yearned for warm days. Now, at least for me, I'm hoping fall starts promptly on September 1st! I probably could handle the heat better with a swimming pool...

Used to Like Cheesecake Factory, Then...

I just had the worst experience at Cheesecake Factory. They just opened a new restaurant about a month ago and I was looking forward to trying it out. The appetizer was cold, the waiter was non-existent and my well-done burger was bright red and very undercooked. I had the burger sent back, but it took forever to get it back. My husband was done eating, when my burger finally came back. It seemed as our dinner went on, it got worse and worse. We couldn't wait to get out of there and even skipped their famous cheesecake, because the experience was so awful. I think they will be getting a letter from me...

Onto more fun things!
