Dinner Saturday evening at Candela. We haven't been there in some time, but every time we go, there seem to be more changes. Good changes. When we first started going to Candela, it was one small strip mall shop with about five tables and very little ambience. After a rave review in the Miami Herald, business became so good, Armando (owner and chef) bought out the place next door to accommodate the larger crowds. Then he started decorating and turned it into a nicely atmospheric dining room. Saturday, we discovered he has added live music; a singer who is very good . We tried to buy one of his CDs, but there were none available. We will go back sometime this week for dinner and a CD.  Another change we noted, they now have a wine list.  Previously, you brought your own.  Robb and I both ordered Fish En Croute (fish wrapped in pastry dough and baked).  They only brought one to the table, but it turned out to be so large that if was more than enough for both of us (even though one of the guys at the next table ate one by himself).  Also new to Candela is cava, so of course, we had to have that and it, too was pretty good.  Dessert was a chocolate tarte.

It has been reported that the Mr. Coffee company has been sponsoring anti-gay groups. You might want to stop buying their products!

Registering to vote just got easier. With this little widget, you can fill out a registration form, print it off and mail it in ... or, if you're lucky enough to be in a state where you can register online, it will take you directly to your Secretary of State's website. Do it now! And share it with family and friends. Remember, as Rep. John Lewis said, voting is "the most powerful, nonviolent tool we have to create a more perfect union." It would be great if those of you with larger followings would reproduce this on your journals!!  

Dumb Law of the Week: In Columbus, Ohio, it is illegal for stores to sell corn flakes on Sunday.

À la prochaine, mes amis.
