“A reminder of good manners in a modern rude world”…”A guide to semi-detached parenting”…”St. John’s Newfoundland Raymonds named Canada’s best restaurant”….

Just a few of today’s headlines about all manner of things in our world…

According to anthropologists, society’s increasing rudeness is part of a phenomenon that sees people behave badly when around strangers and generally we’re all around strangers more of the time in our modern world. “People do stuff they would never do to a neighbour”…

“Semi-detachment” parenting, apparently is “attachment parenting” with some healthy detachments. “Like the flight attendants say: put on your oxygen mask first, and then your child’s”…

Cheers to Newfoundland regional cuisine at a “world class level!” That’s what makes Raymonds the best according to a panel of distinguished Canadian chefs, food writers, and industry professionals.
Added flavour to the article summarizes that #s 4,5,6 on the Top Ten List includes Vancouver’s popular Farmer’s Apprentice, Vij’s, & Hawksworth!!

Salut!!–might dining out be part of your fine Friday?!…

Children are natural mimics who act like their parents despite every effort to teach them good manners. ~Author Unknown
