Here at the “Zone” I(we) made a few changes. The “About” page is updated, and I’ve added a Hungarian Links Page to the blog. Some streamlining on the category widget (still a work in progress.)
For those of you that read “It’s not the waiter’s fault” post, I forget to add one vital piece of information at the end. They ran out of take-out boxes, but no worries, they got some from the restaurant across the street. Like I said, you can’t make this stuff up!! 🙂
Last but not least, what would a Friday post be without a little bit of humor? Kat
