The Mother Lode

The other day My boss and I ate at a place called The Pantry in Green Mountain Falls, CO. I was scanning the menu for something filling and affordable when I saw something under the breakfast menu labelled “The Mother Lode” (Yeah, that’s spelled correctly… I was suprised too). It said it was one giant pancake. It was $5.25, so I decided to order it, assuming it would at least hold me over ’till dinner. After I ordered, the waitress informed me that if I could finish the whole thing, it would be free. That made me excited. I was excited because I paid $5.25 and was garaunteed to leave full… or it was free.

She brought out the pancake. I was speechless. The thing was 15 or 16 inches across, and about an inch thick in the middle! It was the biggest frickin pancake I had ever set eyes on! You go to iHop and pay $5.25, you’ll get three little pancakes with some fruit on ’em.

Long story short, I ate about half of it and asked for a box. I had to fold it in half, and it still filled the whole box. Then I had it for dinner… and breakfast. It was quite an amazing experience. Some day I’ll go back there and finish one of those… Even if it takes me all day.

    arrrggghhhh!!!!! Hey Steve: Do you know a way to FORCE all IE users to install Firefox and use it to view a site? I am working on a site-upgrade for our youth group, and I am using the WordPress skin as the basis for it (tweaked, of coarse). I did all the work in Firefox and it works perfectly. Then I launch IE. Bad idea. See for yourself at the Semper Fi Home Page. (None of the links in the popout work because I havn’t coded them yet.) 😎 (Thanks!!)

    er…. I guess now is a good time to tell you I got the popup menu to work, but the layout is still messed up. 😎 (I’m still learning this stuff. FUN!!)

    Ok. I actually planned on using that PNG transparency trick sometime. Probably in a Xanga. Won’t that be fun. Oh, and I got the site to take in IE. I just copied the same trick you used for this skin, then tweaked it a tad for a static-site setup (basically just hard-coded it right into the page). The other issue (the main content stayed to the left under the menus) I fixed by moving the marquee properties to the CSS and losing the ability to slow it down. Oh well. Now just to make all the links work… 😎 (Not really that hard… I just have to dig out every address from FrontPage designed pages.)
