Our tradition of having Chinese on all major holidays — Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas — has been fairly well documented in this blog.

The last two years we have ended up going to ‘China Palace’ in Rochester at Thanksgiving — because it is the ONLY Chinese place open locally! That is the only two times we have been there — which is ironic. It is NOT a bad place. Decent food, very nice staff (albeit all ‘white’ with no Chinese in sight), interesting decor with a fair amount of flowers — real and fake.

I had to take some pictures of the flowers and share them with you.

Honestly NOT a bad place. Decent, competitively priced food and cocktails. Will recommend it. I am going to make a point of trying to go there outside of Thanksgiving.

‘Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey’ HO-Scale Train Set — If You Are An Avid Collector.

Cute and nostalgic in that ‘Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey‘, at least for now, are gone.

I saw this in an e-mail this morning.

Yes, I was mildly curious in that I am a big fan of ‘The Greatest Show On Earth‘ and like trains and train sets.

But, to be fair this was not compelling even putting aside that it was just in HO scale. My days of HO are long gone. My current layout is N while still have a lot of Z!

They could have done better. No animal wagons and just two passenger cars and the livery isn’t that great. Expensive too — though that could be because it is HO.

Just wanted to share it with you.
