I did so-so on my eating. <BR> Watched most of the day. <BR> My granddaughter, Brianna, turned 7 today and <BR> wanted to go to Golden Coral for dinner, which we <BR> did. Don't prefer to go at nights because it's much <BR> more expensive, but it's her BD so that's what we did. <BR> <BR> She liked all her presents. <BR> <BR> She ate a big salad.
