Product Description

""In The Expendables 3, Barney faces off with an old enemy and must fight old blood with new blood, bringing in a new era of Expendables who are younger and faster. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables most personal battle yet.""
Buy on Amazon:
This was awesome,  Kick ass action.  We enjoyed the comdy releif.  We both love having the older stars in this movie series.  
Can't wait for Expendables 4,  I truly believe there will be another one.

Mike checks out SS Vapes

While we were in Winchester Va on Saturday March 21, 2015 Mike decided to check out SS Vapes.

A little about them:
We believe it's important to provide the proper vapor solution for our customers.
Many people have told us they were initially turned off by electronic cigarettes for reasons such as spending more money on batteries than they were on cigarettes! That doesn't happen with S.S. Vape customers.
Our team will work with you one-on-one to create a custom plan based upon your current and desired smoking requirements. We will ensure that you invest in a product that will help you achieve your goals without emptying your pocket.

Not impressed at all!   Hardly any selection on vapors,  not a lot of favors for the "juices".   Not a very helpful employee.  Small store.  
It boils down to my opinion.  My opinion is this place is a joke.  I will continue to do business in Charles Town at the local vapor store.

Now, normally we do eat there. The staff is extremely friendly and I love it. The atmosphere is nice, not fancy, very family oriented. However, late Saturday nights quite often a large group comes in and of course takes up a large area Right in the Middle of the restaurant and they are very loud!

It can take the staff quite a while  to have our order ready though, even when the place is not busy.  Also, even when we order the same thing week to week- our bill is not the same amount week to week.  That is strange.

Tonight, as I said we had take-out.  They had the order ready very quickly, and it was waiting on us.  So that is a good thing.

Here is where things are not so good:
When we got home, we did have everything we ordered.  Yay!  
But we order 10 soft tacos,  we had 5 aluminum foil "packages" with 2 tacos each.  Sounds fine, but the tacos we basically one very large taco.  
As you can see in the picture, the cook laid out 2 shells and just filled them together.  Making one long taco.  
My fajitas did not fair much better.  I definitely did not get as much in my container as I do in the restaurant.  Oh, this time I had lots more meat than usual but I was lacking in the veggies.
We did call, they wanted us to drive back to the restaurant.  No, sorry we can't do that.  But they said that when we do come back in, we will get credit for 5 tacos!  So that's a plus.  They were willing to fix it!

Our Review of Monkey Joe's!

Today we visited Monkey Joe's for a birthday party, for a friend of our daughter.
We went to the Winchester Va location.

This was our first time visiting Monkey Joe's and I wasn't totally aware of what to expect.  I knew that this was an indoor inflatable place, for the kids to jump, bounce and play.  But what I was not expecting was the wild chaos that we walked into.  Another mom at the birthday party said it perfect "its Chuck E Cheese on crack!"  
We were shown which birthday room we would be in, given a wrist band and sent on our way.  The place was crowded, wild and crazy.  of course the kids were never in the "birthday room" except to eat cake.  It was so hard to actually keep track of my daughter in such a place.  There was NO organization for the birthday groups, it was a Free-for-all!
Mike and I are NOT impressed.  We will only visit if invited again to another birthday party.  I can't comment on service because we actually never spoke to an employee there.
