Every year, it’s been our little tradition to go out for sushi because, let’s be real, who doesn’t love a good sushi night, right? But this year, I thought, “Let’s kick things up a notch.” I mean, it’s not every day your granddaughter turns 16. She’s pretty much obsessed with sushi (who can blame her?), so I set out to find the perfect spot that would make this birthday unforgettable.

Adventure to the south on I15 Just recently I was able to make a trip south into Utah County UT, a whole thirty miles from my home in Sandy UT in Salt Lake County to get my wife to an evening appointment for Secret Women's Business (I suspect an evening meal and a night at a play ~ but I'm never sure). My five hours of leisure allowed me to check out Orem UT and Provo UT, take in a movie, visit the University Mall (Orem), observe the giant Y (for BYU ~ the University in Provo) on the mountains of the Wasatch Front, observe the sunset, brave the traffic and still have reading time at Barnes and Noble. All in all, this trip was a cultural adventure to another part of my State, an adventure of seeing people busy doing things and going places ~ in the middle of the week, and at night. Shoul...
