Katy: Blogger wouldn't allow me to post to your Blog, so I will put my post here:

Ok, so maybe not having trees isn’t so bad after all. I hope the mess gets straightened up quickly and glad to hear you all came out of it ok. We’re getting slammed now by the remnants of Jonathan. Kind of funny you all get the storm with the Hispanic name and we get the English one – twisted world, eh?

I read your profile – didn’t realize you were from the Fatherland. I was stationed there and wouldn’t mind going back. I really liked the country.

DM: Never smart to mess with the gods, even extinct ones.

FS: No worries, no one reads it anyway

FP: Got a cruel streak from my mother's side.

The second entry when you google Carraba's is "Carrabba's Italian Grill Food Poisoning class action lawsuit ..."

How are you and Ms. Phos feeling after your little suckstravaganza?

Sarah! I trust that you were referring to the restaurant posting!! >:-)

Phos....tell it like it is I say! Some people have no business being in business.

SL: No permanent damage, but it is the first time I have had cabbage in Minestrone soup. I swear we'd have been better off eating the menus.

LP11: I just calls 'em like I see 'em. We haven't been having much luck with local restaurants, there are only three we really care to eat at, and one of them is "Sonic", a hamburger drivein.

Jin: This si America, you can do whatever you want (well used to could anyway), just remember I tried to warn you!

This used to be one of my favorite places to go. Then we had a few instances of HORRIBLE service and a found a piece of masking tape in my salad. I'd rather go to McDonald's now.

I miss Germany, the people, the food and the drinks. Where where you stationed?

People like you should keep their comments to themselves. If you knew what heart and soul went into this restaurant company, you would have nasty comments to make. People like you deserve to eat frozen food from Olive Garden.

Anon: I've been to Italy and I know what Italian food should taste like. I don't need you telling me that the garbage they shovel on a plate at Carraba's is Italian. If someone did put their heart and soul into the place instead of phoning it in, it woudln't suck so bad.
