“Given the pervasiveness of Frost’s lines, it should come as no surprise that the popularity of “The Road Not Taken” appears to exceed that of every other major twentieth-century American poem, including those often considered more central to the modern (and modernist) era.”Author Orr listed the GOOGLE stats of searches to prove it! Who knew this particular was so popular?Parts of verses still stick in my mind and when I saw this scene in the woods, they came right up. When I was in grade school, we had to memorize a poem a week and recite it from memory.
We were sad when a local neighborhood business on Cedarville Street, Groceria Italiana, closed their doors last summer..
But here’s the good news!
It has recently reopened as Bloomfield Groceria. It’s really close to Steve’s work so he picked up this wonderful ravioli and brought it home.
We are thrilled they are in business under new proprietors.
Especially after tonight’s dinner of their delicious Spinach and Cheese Ravioli. I sautéed baby spinach- you can see it peeking out underneath.
And I grated some fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano on top. I asked Steve if he could to pick up mushroom ravioli for dinner next week.
Here’s an Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article written by Bob Batz, Jr., about the new Bloomfield Groceria
These bright colors caught my eye as I walked by the storefront of La Feria on Walnut Street.
It’s a restaurant too.

Going to look at my wrist instead of my phone. After more than three years of not wearing a watch, I’m returning to wearing one. Needed two hands to make it glow. I was able to take this photo by using the 3 second timer and propping the phone up in a wooden iPad holder while I pushed the watch stem to make it glow. Just a basic generic watch. I think there are watches somewhere the house that need a battery but I wanted something reliable, quickly. Are you a phone, watch or wall clock checker?
Or none of the above.
