looking for a soul-mate?

“you had me at ‘hello.'”

“you complete me”

Jerry Maguire articulated perhaps what more people, than would care to admit, think.  The notion of a soul-mate–a seemingly perfectly fitted and compatible human being for marriage.  Legitimate aspiration or pipe-dream?

a clean, well-lighted, coffee house

may we make a recommendation on a brand-spanking new independent coffee house in the Uptown area? It’s owned by two ladies, Sara and Kristin (sp?), and it’s called The Crooked Tree.  It’s a warm, inviting, and relaxed area with coffee (of course), pastries, and sandwiches, too, if you’re hungry for a little more than caffeine.

There’s live music on most weekends.

So when a few extra moments avail themselves, stop in and have a cup.  The place says “welcome, sit a spell.”
