We both went back after a little over an hour had passed. And waited the rest of the time in the crowded, newly remodeled Taco Bell/KFC. It was quite the social hour, it seems that everyone was at Taco Bell/KFC!!
In the end we waited a total of 2 1/2 hours! Half hour in line before ordering and 2 hours for food......and it was totally worth it. I was surprised that no one got frustrated waiting, it was expected and everyone was just happy that it is finally OPEN!

It may not sound that exciting to those of you who have a Taco Bell, McDonalds, Carl Jr., Arbys, Dairy Queen, etc, on every corner....on this island it is the talk of the town. Up until today as far as fast food we had McDonalds and Subway. Being a vegetarian those two places aren't very accommodating. At Mc D's I can eat.....um....french fries, and french fries and...oh...a fruit parfait, at Subway a veggie sub. Now don't get me wrong I do really love those two places, I just need a little more variety sometimes, and Taco Bell will give it to me. Just substitute beans for meat and I can eat everything on the menu.
Look out bean burrito....here I come!!!

Since I have lived on this island I have been more in tune with nature and the simple life. And with the direction this country is moving, we all better start!
My recent adventures have included tromping through thorny bushes, slippery hills, bees, spider webs and the occasional slug. Because it's that time of year again, time for Salmonberries!!! Actually we should of been gathering them a month and a half ago, but better late than never (like last year, not one berry). I found a great spot and have three gallons already...would like at least 3 more gallons. It may sound like a lot to you, but I have berry fever and need to make enough jam to get me through the winter. Now I just need to learn to make peanut butter!!
Things I make with Salmonberries....
- Dog Treats
- Barbecue Sauce

Working in a professional office, the flame tattoo on my wrist has become the biggest inconvenience...needless to say, I wear a lot of long sleeves! I have though come up with a great solution, WRIST WARMERS!!
Not only are they fun and simple to make, they are cute to wear and even better allow me to wear short sleeves, hello freedom.
