Spring has Sprung!

What odd weather we have had. After a record breaking amount of snow in February, the weather turned warm one day and it has been essentailly nice since then, for the entire month of March. The daffodils and crocuses are blooming, and the leaves on my favorites -- the lilacs -- are starting to emerge.

Some friends and I took advantage of the great weather yesterday to visit a Pamela's restaurant in the small town of Millvale. The restaurant is a throw-back to an old diner -- and the favorite spot of President and Mrs. Obama when they visit the 'Burgh. There is a bulletin board of photos showing the First Lady and the staff from the restaurant when she stopped by with her entourage for some lighter-than-air pancakes last fall.

These people know their pancakes. They are scrumptious and deserve several more visits just to make sure they are as good as I thought. If you are visiting Pittsburgh anytinme soon, or lucky enough to live here!, there are several Pamela's dotted around the city.
