I love snow. I wonder if anyone will come in for lunch today. I don't care. I am going to make sure we have plenty of hot drinks for everyone.

My new hero is Joe Stein. He is a 19 year old that works for me. He just got back from Mexico. He hitch hiked down to the interior with a few of his friends. He got down there and back in about nine days. He was in last night to work. I got a chance to sit down and talk to him of his adventures for a few minutes last night. He did this all and spent only 60 bucks. Twenty of it was on a "fine" and another twenty was on a bus.

So I got Netflix. I have gotten so many fun movies. I rarely get a chance to watch them. I usually just watch them with the volume off in the restaurant. I just sent back Escape from NY, Escape from LA, Once Upon a Time in America and Raging Bull. I should get in today Kelly's Heroes, American Experience: Fidel Castro, Battle for Algeirs and Serpico. It is so much fun. I think all this snow has inspired me to order the claymation version of Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer.

serpico is a great movie.

rudolph was on tv last wed. it was the one with the misfit toys and hermy the dentist elf. i can't decide if i was getting a kick out of the actual show, or the fact that a lot of the soundtrack (including voice) was terribly warped in spots. it was almost like those old informational flicks from the 50's.

serve up some of those hot cider drinks in this weather. those were tasty-

My mother said the same thing when I drove trucks to Mexico City. She is right. I am crazy. Joe is a good kid. He has a great head on his shoulders.
