I'm just a guy who likes to write of his dining and travel experiences online, expressing my opinions. All of us go into a place expecting a great time. If it lives up to or surpasses our expectation, great. If not, my criticism will address specific problems and, if possible, my suggestions to fix them. It's gratifying that I've helped to somewhat influence fellow TripAdvisor travelers in their decisions to try a restaurant or not or other places. Its also gratifying that restaurant owners/managers have contacted me with their thanks for a positive review or, after a negative review, an invitation to return to their restaurant so they can do a better job. It's nice to know that TripAdvisor reviews can make a difference. Besides all this, I'm completing my first novel, a Western. Just happened to me the idea that came to mind. Hopefully I'll get some success with this and we'll see what I write next.
