First off I would like to offer an apology for not really posting this past week. In fact when I lay down to bed last night I was coming up with this long statement that work was too busy and all of that stuff, so to not expect daily updates. Something Changed all that. I awoke at 3am(Hate that time of night, “Dead Time” and all that) to take care of some pressing business in the bathroom. While I was praying while going back to sleep (Good Habit to get into BTW) a thought popped in my mind. This past week sucked. Between Employee issues, guest issues, the weather, interviews, headaches, not having a really nice day off, Problems with getting my Mum and sister Valentines Day Flowers (The Florist did not have the Vase I wanted for them), Slipping once on the ice (OUCH), some idiot setting off the fire alarm in my building twice, and Finally the week ended in a 13!!! This little thought kept at me asking what was so different about this week compared to everything else? The Only answer was that I did not Blog this week.
Really, that was the only major difference.
Could it be that simple?
Is Blogging helping to keep me sane?
Is Blogging one outlet that can prevent me from becoming a sad, pathetic, and probably impotent person like that one Anonymous Commenter?
Is Blogging Preventing me from resembling a Primary Posterior Fundamental Orifice? (Yeah, I was kind of an A$$hole this week to some people)
SO, I want to Apologize. To everyone who has seen a Side Of CB this week that they did not like. (Hopefully the pictures of the Chocolate fest at the end of the posting will in part make up for that, and serve as my Valentines gift to everyone)
And FINALLY I want to Say Thank You to that one Anonymous Poster who basically called me a Primary Posterior Fundamental Orifice. Why? Because they with their bitterness and hatred they showed me everything I do not want to be, and also reminded me that sometimes, the best thing you can do to triumph over the forces of evil and hate is to be happy!!
DEADLIEST CATCH NEWS UPDATE
There is alot going on, all of it I can not talk about!! I will reassure you all though that All of the Boats and Crews are safe, no matter what rumors are going around. They are all out fishing and doing well. It is Going to Be an AWESOME Season Everyone!!! I have to walk a fine, Self Imposed, line when it comes to the show. To try to clear up any misconceptions that a Certain Anonymous Poster might have brought up, let me try to explain. The OP People are great, a Fun Bunch, and this island being the size it is we end up seeing each other everywhere, and thus I always seem to know what is going on. HOWEVER I do not post ANY information I get this way. The Only Information I post is Info that I have gathered myself. The OP Crew are guests and as such I respect their Privacy. That is the Hospitality Industry way. (Heck, if I told you the stuff I know about Tom Cruise from one of his stays at one of my hotel..., and I do not even like him!!) Also the Rule applies that "What happens at the Bar stays at the Bar" in relations to the boats and the Crew. It is sometimes tough to follow, but I believe that it is best overall. But Really, this may be the best season YET!!!
Now, On to Brunch!!!

For Sunday Brunch At the Award Winning Chart Room Restaurant,
Located at The Grand Aleutian Hotel In Dutch Harbor Alaska?
This is how it looked this morning, Temp at 39F, Light sprinklings of Rain. NOW though the temperatures are dropping quick, the wind is really starting to pick up and it has turned to snow.
Look Who decided to Join Us!! Why it is Mr Otter, showing off right out the window from our tables.
Salads and Fruits for Frieda.....
Apple Crepes with a Caramel honey Glaze and some toasted Pecans on the Side for me Please!!!
The Salmon with the Blood Orange Reduction is quite good..............
But the Mandarin orange Sechwzan Chicken with baby bok-choi is to DIE for!!! (Awesome job Willie!!!)
These Chocolates are hand Made by Alena!'s Mum. (The Real Unalaska Blog Linked to on this site) The Grand Marnier truffles with the candied Orange Peel were AWESOME, but I will not show you any pictures of the Sea Salt Carmel ones. THEY ARE ALL MINE AND KEEP YOU GREEDY EYES OFF OF THEM!!! (Incidently Alena, if you ever need ANYTHING done, up to and including a felony, all I require as payment is a pound of the Sea Salt Caramels.
And Finally on Saturday, Valentines Day there are no pictures because this is not an Adult Web site. Suffice to say that CB was really Happy the Coast Guard was in town.
Hope you all had a great brunch!!
See you more this week than last
