Should I Take My Hat Off at a Restaurant?

I thought it was the left arm! Grew up in San Diego - all my brothers were military and after I wrote the reply I was able to reach my former Marine nephew who confirmed your remarks. His father was a Naval Captain. Thanks for your reply and your service!

Should I Take My Hat Off at a Restaurant?

"Parking" accommodations for hats. Few restaurants provide this service -- the upscale ones do! This begs the question -- what do military and others in full uniform do with their covers/hats once inside? I believe if the work uniform is worn, the cover is placed in the belt. But in the dress uniform, the cover is placed under their arm (forget which one) until a suitable resting place is found. In the restaurant, the headwaiter or maitre d'hôtel will rest the cover/hat/coat for their guests. I like it when I see the gentleman remove his hat when entering the building. Many say that their hat is part of their outfit and will not remove it. For this lady, the scale slides from 10 to 9 at that point!

Japchae (Korean Stir-Fried Sweet Potato Noodles)

I'm a newbie vegetarian cook -- I'm trying to win the heart of the man I love by way of preparing unique non-meat entrees for him. He is loving that attention; however, I'm not quite sure how far the his loving me is coming through. Nonetheless, even I (a meat and potatoes girl) likes the meals, too.
I find the CHOW site recipes interesting and easy to follow. Additionally, the links to give details about ingredients is most helpful.
Back to the recipe -- my operator at the nail salon picked up the sweet potato noodles. All went together very nicely and we enjoyed the meal.

The Most Obnoxious Chefs of 2011

Batalli is too, too much for me. It is difficult to watch him because he approaches everything and everyone as though he either invented or created the thing and he is far superior to any of his guests who seem to sit in awe drooling at his every word.

Now, Gordon Ramsey -- yes, he is a peach if you don't take anything he says in the gruff way he lets it spew from his mouth. It took me a while to get over the 'F' word. Now, I can watch all of his shows and I learn something from his cooking methods and his impact on the people he works with. Under all of that belligerence hides a very compassionate man.

I would hope that the man would remove his hat upon entering my home, a restaurat, and church.

The, Um, Breast Milk in the Fridge

I disagree!
Breast feeding is perfectly fine and should be done modestly and in the confines of your personal domain. The workplace is not your personal space and yes, I did tell our office manager that several of females were annoyed and offended with the newest mother leaving her breast pump on the office kitchen counter to dry or whatever. I suggested that it be taken to her personal ofice space.

Most all things can and should be done in moderation with thought to others and not ones self first and primarily.
