No Swine Flu in Jacksonville

Even though LA is coughing, has a runny nose, and is generally tired, we are ruling out Swine Flu for the following reasons: no contact with anyone who's recently been to Mexico, no cases in Florida, no fever. We are suspecting allergies which turned into a sinus infection, which moved to her lungs. Claritin-D, for all its wonders, makes her a little fuzzy, so we're switching to Mucinex and naps.

We had a wonderful weekend with Dad and Jenny, doing a lot of eating and relaxing. Anytime we eat 2 consecutive meals at a place, you know its good! The Fish Company on Atlantic is one such place, with options from sandwiches, to grilled fish, to fried entrees. Good happy hour specials (New Castle on tap), though the desserts are average.

Another good find, much more of a dive, is the Beach Hut Cafe, where we fought for a table as late as 1030. Busy and a little understaffed, our food came out quickly and hot. Biscuits and gravy all around! Its hard to screw up diner-style breakfasts, but this one was exceptionally good, with fluffy biscuits and mildly cheesy grits.

For reading material, I recommend Dragons Tale, which is running 1/2 off of all back issues and has lots of graphic novels at 60% off. I picked up Wolverine Noir #1, Star Wars Clone Wars #1 (Dark Horse 100 Special Edition), Iron Man: Viva Las Vegas #2, and Wizard Wolverine Masterpiece Edition (only $8). And after reading the article in Wired about the German import game Settlers of Catan (supposedly the best board game created), I was excited to see it in Dragons Tale! So naturally I had to buy it, even though its 3-4 players. I hope Kim enjoys it when she comes to visit!
