So we have the WORST luck with cars. WORST EVER, people.

We get in a lot of accidents – the real kicker is maybe 10% of those accidents are our fault. The rest are from other people backing into us without leaving notes, construction barriers flying into our front and side windows from the crazy West Jordan wind, teenagers slamming into our bumper and totaling our vehicle, and college students slamming into the side rear of our car from ice (Utah in the winter is a suck fest driving-wise). These all actually happened – and our poor car has taken a serious beating.

Unfortunately for us, a few of these accidents are cases where we’re having to pursue the companies and people who are responsible because they won’t pay-out. It’s super-frustrating, but they should realize that when you hit the car of an attorney, and leave tracks and serious damage, you’re going to get pasted to the wall with some serious evidence against you.

Why? Well, the first thing I do when an accident happens is take as many pictures as I can. Pictures are worth a thousand words – and sometimes a thousand dollars. For the meantime, we’re driving a car right now with a bashed in door (it doesn’t close all the way and the window is stuck – so a cold draft blows in through the cracks whenever we drive the car.). It’s some serious high-class rolling. So if you see us – please soak in our awesomeness. If you’d like to pay our $1,000 deductible, please find our little car, and finish it off. Just make sure none of us are in the car, mmkay? Oh, and leave a note with your insurance info, please.

This sandwich is a perfect Sunday no-stress-no-work-but-big-taste kind of meal. It’s fantastic. It melts all over the place when that mozzarella gets freaky with the meat and veggies. And how hard was it to make? With the exception of the knife stuff, my 2 year old could make this. Just chop it up, toss it in, leave it alone for 5 hours, and BAM – dinner is easily served. If you have a crazy day next week, put this on the menu. You’ll be grateful to come home to something amazing to fill your lovely little bellies with without any effort at all.

On average, two restaurants a week closed in the year to the end of March, including casual dining chains, as well as upmarket and independent establishments, according to the latest data from analysts CGA and corporate advisory firm AlixPartners. Graeme Smith, the managing director of AlixPartners, said he expected restaurant numbers to continue to drop throughout the year as large chains in particular slim down. There have already been high-profile closures by burger chain Byron, Jamie’s Italian, Carluccio’s, the Prezzo Group and Sir Terence Conran’s Albion restaurants, but more large chains and independents are expected to suffer. “It’s easy to say this is a crisis in casual dining,” said Peter Martin at CGA. “This is a crisis happening for everyone.” Restaurants are suffering because the fall in the value of the pound since the Brexit vote has made ingredients more expensive while staff costs have risen, partly due to increases in the minimum wage. Economic uncertainty has stalled growth in the sector just as competition has increased after a surge in openings partly fuelled by private equity investment.
