    Stupid Guest Questions

    Encountered guests as I was fixing breakfast this morning. They were going to go for a walk before breakfast and asked "Do you know what the temperature is?" I told them I hadn't been outside yet or had a chance to check the weather channed. I felt like saying "Did you ever think of sticking...

    This is my first post on the new forum. It is taking a little getting used to. I am assuming that only members can post while anyone can visit. Can the visitors see all the posts? I am really starting to hate one night stays. I just accepted a reservation in July where we will change over...
