At Girard, the servers will get inflated salaries, profit-sharing and health care benefits, so tipping is not necessary.
You can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.

This summer I caved in, procured pots and planted a vegetable and herb garden. Here’s a visual update on how the plants are growing. The pregrown tomatoes survived and are bearing green fruit. The garlic is sharing a pot with peppers and basil. I’m really impressed at how quickly the garlic cloves took off. And finally that little sprout is a cucumber pod that was planted last weekend.
Somewhere in the depths of California’s Mojave Desert, in a location identifiable only by guarded GPS coordinates, is a tiny pool.
This pool, imagined by Austrian artist Alfredo Barsuglia, is open to the public. All one needs to do is inquire at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture in West Hollywood about the longitude and latitude of the artificial oasis, plopped down in the middle of the arid spaces. But don’t forget to ask for the key, as well.
If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.
