Woman From Switzerland

A woman visiting from Switzerland asks if she can take a menu back home with her, to show her community what's possible.  A guest tells a first time server, "You are perfect."  Another volunteer created a huge chalk-board concoction on which we share the theme for the day.  This week, loads of people transcribed the memorable "best advice you ever got" found anywhere from their parents to bathroom walls.  A guest excitedly does a show-and-tell with the Maitre-D: "Last week, I picked up this Smile Deck card that said cook a meal for someone and share a joke.  So I did that."  And then she proceeds to share the joke. 

Susi typed up some of these quotes:  "Love is freedom.  Always leave a place cleaner than you found it.  A stitch in time saves nine.  Whatever you do, love yourself! A great relationship = good communication, good love, and good sex. :)  Never stop having fun! Breathe: You are alive!  No one can make you feel inferior without your permission.  No one can take anything from you if you don't give it to them. To this above all to thine own self be true. Be a good listener. Be healthy, love, peace, and compassion and one will create this! Go gently. Don't procrastinate. Be grateful. Life is gift. Kill them with kindness."
