Well, not quite Fountain Hills ...

Didn't make it to Fountain Hills.  Instead, we ate breakfast at "Matt's Big Breakfast" in downtown Phoenix.  Connie V has several diners on her list - this was one of them.  A very small building - had to wait outside for a table.  Breakfast was very good; thick bacon.  By the time we left, the outside crowd had grown considerably.


After "Matt's" we stopped at Fry's Electronics; from there to the Ahwatukee Farmer's market.  We planned to get some relishes from "Terre Verde Farms", but they were a no-show.  Bummer.  Their Spicey O's are VERY good.  We did get tomatoes and olive oil.  Then on to Ikea to buy furniture for Donna's work, and  to Chandler to try some wine at Kokopelli's first annual zydeco festival.  Problem - the festival ended on Saturday.  A misprint in the paper!  Lastly, we visited Queen Creek Olive Mill - brought home a jar of Wasabi-Ginger olives.  They are very good in gin.

We returned back home early afternoon after a short detour via Florence (we didn't believe Keith's GPS and took the REALLY long way home)!

For our next trip, Donna and I are taking LaMarr to the Steel Pan Band at ASU.

Discussion Group Update

Our group is still small - not much discussion on Ubuntu.  We've changed the agenda to cover all computer concerns and hope attendance will increase.

Fountain Hills

I think we're going to the Fountain Hills Arts Festival on Sunday.  They expect about 500 artists and over 200,000 people during the three day event.  Should be some very interesting art - hope we can keep our expenditures very low.  I'll take some pictures.

Giant Hamburgers

Took a road trip to Giant Hamburgers. Online reviews said this was a great place for breakfast. So-so. Still like breakfasts at Cracker Barrel.
