It is kind of like playing a computer game and then looking up the cheats.


You may have just pushed his button. ;-D

I mentioned it to his mom on the phone, SIL is the son of two school teachers so I suspect grandpa doesn't have a whole lot of leverage on this one.

OT - Birthday Party Industry

It would seem their is a whole new small business industry here or perhaps it is just my perception?

C. had a "Tiny Chef" party for her newly five year old last weekend. They show up with all the ingredients and the little ones all get to make their own lunch (Pizza). The two ladies even clean up the kitchen after. She has booked the girl's dance school for a "Princess Party" for the little (3 in April) one's birthday. Meanwhile Banker lady had a "Mad Scientist" party for the 9 year old in December and has booked a "Laser Tag" party for the 7 year old to be next week. I wonder if this is a lot of people starting a small business that doesn't require a whole lot of up front capital? Of course some of it is existing small business trying to bring in some extra cash flow from existing facilities.

C. commented that it is "raining ministers" in Washington right now and she and the ambassador have "tons of hill calls" coming up. She got a call from a Foreign Affairs friend who was supposed to become ambassador to Iran until our PM shut down the embassy their. He was hoping for a change of mind but as he is with the ME desk he is now scouting for another position somewhere there. Lots more interesting stuff but I forgot to take notes.
