Re the tete-a-tete non-couple in the corner: sounds like a place where you are paying a hefty price for your meal; why would you want to spend the time worrying about what your friend is doing? Enjoy your meal, eat up and pay up and get out!

Very thoughtfully meditative, most appropriate for this sacred time. Keep in mind that the first year is definitely the hardest after such a big change of course; it will get clearer and easier if you keep walking the new path. My prayers go with you.

I find that foods at most "health-permit" restaurants still cause occasional indigestion and intestinal disturbances; any time you eat food from a kitchen not your own, there is a risk of infection.

Hey, Barney: how about a foodie opinion -- instead of just an overview of what's there?

Harry's sells the very best strawberries I have ever tasted, even back in the days when I picked them myself on a farm in Southern Michigan.

I'm delighted that I've lived long enough to take the greatest advantage of my "crone" status: not having to give a damn what others think of me. Freedom!

Although some may know that they will die in 2012 (a dear relative of mine is among those), any of us may do so. Living each day as though it were all we have (which it is) -- is the way to prepare for death.

I'm a fairly religious old lady (at least in the estimation of my kids) -- but I loved "The Guard" and am going to see it again today. I watched it on a flight to Ireland recently, and it was a wonderful introduction to the west of Eire as it is today. Great performances and riveting comedic-thriller story.
