What you have here is a big brick box under construction next to a small brick box, this is what has become of architecture in Saratoga Springs.
I'm pretty sure this is the result of design-by-committee, what you get when you have a bunch of people who know fuck-all about design, making decisions on aesthetics in some misguided attempt to preserve Saratoga's Victorian charm. What?
So now, every new building amounts to a giant, featureless, brick box, devoid of any character or similarity to anything "charming."

Here's an iPhone pic of Bella using Daniel's iPod Touch, which keeps her occupied in restaurants. And that's a good thing.
It's really amazing how intuitive the Apple interface is, that a two year old can flip through applications, play games, change to color and paint apps, switch back to games, wield a lightsaber... Now there's a scary thing, watching a two year swing your iphone around to hear the cool lightsaber sounds. Yikes, I changed my mind and had to cut that short!
No more lightsaber for you!

Chris, wifey and I at the Tea House in Boulder, so I'm having a beer...
because beer goes best with the hummus and samosa dishes. Notice the mango chutney and raita on the samosa dish - deelish. The olives, onions and hummus on the pita wedges were devilishly-deelish too.
