Enjoy your rest brother. Tomorrow morning, it's back to phone calls.
Hope you get to open soon. I might have to take a weekend road trip up to Michigan!



Which page was the pickle recipe on?

Yeah, my wife mentioned that to me yesterday. I need to keep the venting private. I was just so pissed off on Friday that it got the better of me. Hopefully we've got something lined up tomorrow to resolve this issue.

No problem. They are pretty good after sitting just overnight, but after two days, about perfect.

I'm already somewhat dreading Monday. It's so hard to spend the day turning people away and explaining that you're not open yet. Luckily, Mondays are technically our closed day, so that might keep things a bit more calm. But if we aren't up and running by Wednesday, it's going to hit the fan.

And I don't remember what page the pickle recipe was on, but it was posted about a week ago I believe.

One of the maddening things, and one that almost nobody realizes until they have been through it, is that the health and building guys have absolute power in their realms. It is usually best just to do what is asked and not fight it. There is almost no power and regular politician can wield to get those guys to play fair.

Hang in there, it will happen soon. Been there are too often, been to war over a hot dog machine in a Little League snack bar. It does get ridiculous.

All the best in the world to you. I am sure you already know this, but be prepared to work 24/7. I own a wholesale bread bakery and it is all consuming of my time. I don't mind because I love what I do. It is very hard to find vacation time with the family. Make sure your wife is 100% behind you. I could not run my business without her even though she has her own career. My customers always come first. Thanks for the post. Again all the best to you and your family. If you ever need any bread advice, I am always available.I have been baking bread for 30 years now.

Hang in there Brother!

I understand your feeling towards inspectors. I went rounds with and FDA inspector since it was "what he wanted to see" and not the law. It's stupid the way some let things go to their heads and think they are the ALMIGHTY power over all.

Hope to be seeing you soon

Is your place located in Berrien or Cass county? I've worked with Virgil, the HD inspector for Berrien county and he's always been very helpful.

I agree, with reference to the absurd degree of horse**** the government puts people through it nearly gives me chest pains reading about this (& knowing many others that have gone through the same thing). One might think it to be common sense that when a guy is willing to lay it on the line, take huge financial risks & do what it takes to get a small business up & running that might prove to be a nice stream of taxes and employment for any given local community that these idiots would bend over backwards to do everything in their power to help get the balloon off the ground as soon as possible. Yet, as with most things governmental, they appear to thwart common sense and do just the opposite.

Ok government and common sense should never be used in the same sentence.

The government, with regularity, lacks common sense.

It's Cass, so I'm working with Rich. He's actually very helpful and lenient. It's the mechanical inspection that's the hold up, and my contractor that never got, or couldn't pull the right permit.

It's a new day brother. My biggest fear for you right now is how everyone starts to shut themselves down for the holidays.

But lots of folks might want some BBQ to-go for the holidays. It's always easier to let the other guy do the cookin', especially if it's as tasty as his looks

I am talking about inspectors and government officials.
