    I have to tell you that small cats can have a particular and unpleasant problem. For example: I took little Tarry into Whole Foods (in his little box) so he would not have to be left in the car. I noticed a woman peering at him, and so I invited her to have a good look. “He’s a snow shoe” I said proudly. “Oh,” she said. “A snow shoe rat?”

    I mean, really! And this was not the first time. When we had the two quite little Siamese sisters, they once came bounding cheerfully down the stairs to greet guests, one of whom started to point and scream about the rodents. Of course, the sisters were quite taken aback.

    According to the promotional flyer for the legendary Balinese Room in Galveston, Texas, head bartender Santos Cruz created the Margarita for singer Peggy (Margaret) Lee in 1948.
    The Balinese Room was opened in 1941 and was Texas’s finest nightclub with A/C, casino gambling, superb food and drinks, and stellar entertainment until the Texas Rangers finally shut it down in 1957.

    The Balinese Room was build by a friend’s grandfather; it survived as a restaurant until Ike. Here’s a picture of it before hurricane Ike:

    and then after:
