AND! If the new joint is being named, "Pancake House", then it better be making the very best, top notch, perfect pancakes.
Recently, the giant restaurant chain, Denny's, reformulated their recipe for "Buttermilk Pancakes." Denny's new pancake recipe, according to their promotion campaign, is NOT a mix. Includes real eggs, flour, fresh buttermilk and a hint of vanilla.
Hand mixed ingredients!
Denny's new pancake recipe
With this pancake promotion, Denny's is trying to "capture" the pancake market. You know something? I believe that Denny's new pancake recipe is more than good enough to succeed in that market capture.
However, the newly opened Pancake House where I am eating breakfast this morning, does NOT cut it. Not with their "mushy" pancake!

10am - Good by Garmin GPS
I've owned a Garmin GPS for use in my car for perhaps 10 years. In 2014, I replaced my Samsung cell phone with an iPhone. This iPhone used a Google App which is a GPS.
That Google GPS App was pretty good. But not real good. So, I used both the Garmin and the Google GPS Apps.
Over time, I noticed improvements in the Google GPS App. And recently, the Google GPS App got really good. Maybe even went into the "great" class.
Google's GPS/map App sends verbal directions to my Honda FIT radio. If I am listening to Pandora Radio music AND Google App directions at the same time, the music volume gets really low while the Google App directions are being spoken! Really cool!
Yesterday I removed the Garmin from my Honda FIT. Google had obsoleted the Garmin. A fantastic achievement for Google. They are killing a pioneer in GPS equipment!
7pm - I've read that the population of bees here in San Diego County has dropped a lot. However, I've been spending a lot of time on my balcony lately, and I see lots of bees out here. The bees are especially interested in my hummingbird feeder filled with sweet nectar!
8pm - The Guava Gardens swimming pool and spa remain closed to tenants. We are even not allowed to enter the pool area where we usually meet! There is a lock on the pool gate! Third day for this locked gate.
Two things come to my mind about the pool and spa closure:
- Why are tenants not told the actual reason for this closure?
- Why are we not trusted inside the pool area where we usually sit and mingle?
