Commenting on/about the GLOB

GLOB is an acronym for Gainesville’s Lunch Out Blog, an acronym that I’m hoping -- with your help -- will become a staple in the ever-continuing discussion among folks in Gainesville about “What’s for lunch?”  If you don't know where to submit your comment you can include your posting below.


The GLOB encourages users to analyze, comment on and even challenge Gainesville's Lunch Out Blog articles, reviews and multimedia features.
User reviews and comments that include profanity or personal attacks or other inappropriate comments or material will be removed from the site. Additionally, entries that are unsigned or contain "signatures" by someone other than the actual author will be removed. Finally, we will take steps to block users who violate any of our posting standards, terms of use or privacy policies or any other policies governing this site. Please review the full rules governing commentaries and discussions.

Thanks again . . . and Bon Lunch!

Mike Sanford, Editor,

    Hi Mike,
    Your site looks great and I'm excited to watch it evolve as a useful and much-used tool.
    I needed to find a lunch spot near the mall over the weekend and checked out your google map by-location feature. Looking over available options, I was uninspired, then remembered Mr. Han's Gourmet Chinese restaurant. I was sure my mom and her beau, who were traveling through town, would love to meet there, but I was surprised the restaurant wasn't listed on your map. I gave them the address anyway, and lo - I learned that your GLOB is up-to-date. Sadly, since Mr. Han died in a car crash, his delightful restaurant has closed.
    But I guess you knew that.
    Keep up the good work, Mike, and THANK YOU!
    best of luck,
    trish*

    Really looking good. When I typed in the "find food" box (orange bar below food by type and food by name)nothing happened. I typed in Black Beans. What is the function of that box?

    I've been given the gift of farming. And there's two words, which define success or failure in every seed I plant. 'I think' and 'I know'. When I plant a seed, I don't think it will grow, I know it will grow. Thinking sows doubt, knowing sows success with failure. And each failure provides a lesson for growth.

    I know two things. You're going to be the, 'to go to for good food'. Second, I get real hungry when I visit your site.

    I know this will probably not be possible, but a menu from these places would be a good idea. Might take up too much space, though. Pavlov's dog signing off....

    It was really great to visit the editors room today. While talking to you, it was like watching a child open that first Christmas present.

    You planted your seeds, kept them waterred and watched them break through the dirt. The true leaves are on their way. You're going to have a great plant with an even greater harvest. Doesn't it feel good to be 16 again?

    And thanks for showing me some worms need to live. You and your journey are in my prayers.

    Very cool! I love the links and the quotes. Nice touch.
    The author profiles were very interesting.
    It moves a little slowly on my end. Not sure why.

    I don't see my previous comment. The site has a nice look to it. Since this is a test, to recap: I attempted to access Chipolte from the map via the bubble. No response. I also typed in the name using the Find feature. There's no "go" key, so I hit return and still no response. I also am not getting a drop down box when I go to type in my name allowing me to double click on the drop down selection so I don't have to retype everytime I add a comment.

    Nice look. Since this is a test, I tried to click on the Chipolte Archer Road and nothing came up. I went to Find Food by Name and after typing in the Chipolte name there is no "go" button. I hit return and still no results. I also notice there are no markers for the restaurants inside Shands.

    Great!!! I’ve got you bookmarked. This is a really good idea for those of us who have to grab lunch on the run.
