J'aime Paris

Tammy and I had a great trip to Paris. I'll post an album of pictures somewhere in a little while. This cat (M. Chat) is a well-known graffiti character who has appeared all over Paris and other parts of France.

K&F: It's happening

Emma Nash, Nate Allen, Charlie Nash, and Steve North working on the new outdoor seating area at Knife and Fork. For those who just tuned in, Nate and Wendy have bought the building next to K&F (the one with the white porch railing). They have various plans for the building (starting with a walk-in cooler for the restaurant), but the first step is to convert this part of the lot into a seating area with some kind of outdoor kitchen. If you want to help out, Emma is organizing another community workday on Saturday, May 18, from 10 - 2.

And while we're on the subject, a big mazel tov to Nate and Wendy on the arrival of little guy James Magnus Allen.
