@MothersBistro Portland, OR

Wonderful breakfast and coffee with Mother’s Bistro owner @robsample. Swirling, inspiring riffs on music, movies, food, tech, Sicily, Portland culture and the Beat Generation (just mentioned it again!).

Great meeting you. Rob. A prossima Volta!

Update:  More photos and a video.

Very good Lebanese food here:

Better Than the Real Thing!

I see these fruity sweets in windows in every town in southern Italy. Today, my wife is making them herself for the first time. She has the molds, but only “half” molds. If she fuses them together will they look as good as these?
