The Floating Patio

For those who do not know The Floating Patio has been open all summer long. I ran into Chris Gormsen while refueling the Pontoon boat we had rented. Chris stated last night when I spoke to him that many people did not realize he was open, he needs the community's support as well.

The Flipping Frog

We here in Bayview have a new business. The Flipping Frog will have its Grand Opening Labor weekend featuring music and good food. Phil Stephans is a local resident who has renovated the building located on Marietta. He and his staff and friends have put in many hours. Please take the time to welcome this new business. I personally have not tried the food but I hear it is excellent!

We need to treasure those who have treasured us, please visit Fran. While she does not live in Bayview she has been a part of our community through B.A.B.'s. The last time I saw her she was walking with her walker after viewing the Bayview Daze Parade.
Update on Fran Harms from Taryn:
Feel free to share.  Fran is at Life Care Center, Room 216 (by Kohl's). Granny's phone is not hooked up yet. In the meantime, you can contact  her by calling the Life Care main # 208-762-1122 ask for Room 216. Grandpa (Doug), Carol, or I will be with her most every day throughout the day. Anyone can call my cell at 208-661-3891 or Grandpa at 208-699-4190. Both of us have our cells with us all of the time. She looks good.

Why Dean drives me nuts!

Which city is the hardest-working in the US? You'll be surprised

Credit the coffee or gray weather keeping people inside and at their desks. The city that has been crowned America's hardest working city is … Seattle. The blog Movoto, which covers "the lighter side of real estate," says factors including average hours worked per week, unemployment rate, employed workers per hour and lack of sleep earned the Emerald City the No. 1 spot on its list of America's 50 hardest-working cities. Five cities in Texas (Arlington, Fort Worth, Austin, Dallas and Houston) and two in California (San Jose and San Francisco) also made the top 10. Coming in at No. 50? Memphis, Tenn., where apparently people are hardly working and not working hard. [Source]
