Hello Tuesday, it's David. Today is national "do something nice day!"

Unless you live on the moon, you probably know that Facebook and Instagram were down from noon yesterday until about 7 PM last night. Facebook says the disruption was caused by "configuration changes on the backbone routers".  Looks like all systems are go this morning.

Today it will be cloudy with a thunderstorm or two, and a high of 81. Tonight will be cloudy and humid, with a couple of showers and thunderstorms, and a low of 67.

Changes coming to Doffer's Canteen

Pita Wheel owner Chris Davis recently purchased Doffer's Canteen, and plans to rename it The Twisted Goat Deli. He also plans to reintroduce the chicken sandwich from the prior South Fork Deli. (worth slapping your Mama for!)  Some modern art and kitsch will round out the decor, as well as a new garage door opening to the patio.
