Really Cool Art!

I came across this huge painting in the basement of an antique store. It was a bit creepy down there, but then I saw this beauty!

This piece is actually a print, set inside the frame with glass on the top.

The thing that caught my eye is what’s on top of the glass. It’s like they took “scribbles” and highlighted some area’s on the outside of the glass, to give it a really cool 3D effect.

Vietnamese Lunch, Part 2

My daughter, her boyfriend and I went out to lunch in Alameda, California. We went to a Vietnamese place called Pho Singh http://www.phosinh.com The tofu sandwich was hands down the best sandwich I’ve ever had in my life! I was hesitant to order it at first because of all the carbs between the bread and the tofu. But to my surprise, this sandwich was worth every calorie and every single carb!

The bread was fresh, crispy outside, but soft at the same time! In the sandwich was tofu, long strips of skinned cucumber, green and red peppers, carrot sticks, cilantro and a fabulous anjou type of sauce. The sauce caused the sandwich to be slightly drippy, but oh man was it fantastic!
