Comment of the Day!


This is about the China Garden restaurant. My husband and I have bought food from there for take out several times. It is kept clean and very nice. The last order we bought for take out was for beef fried rice. Often we get beef fried rice from different Chinese restaurants and it is usually comparable. This was totally unusual.It had strips of beef not just on top but all through the rice. Generally I have fried rice for breakfast during the week. With some medical problems including allergies and having to force protein, this is recommended by my dietician. I will keep frequenting this restaurant.

GLOBmaster2017Good morning GLOBers.  After winning the 2018 Southeastern Conference Championship, six Florida baseball players earned recognition from the conference for their performances this season along with head coach Kevin O'Sullivan.  Florida is the second school in SEC history to have the Player of the Year, Pitcher of the Year and Coach of the Year in the same season.  Brady Singer is the third UF player to be named SEC Pitcher of the Year, joining Justin Hoyman (2004) and Logan Shore (2016). Jonathan India is the third player to win SEC Player of the year (Matt LaPorta, 2005 & 2007; Mike Zunino, 2011).  The Gators earned the No. 1 overall seed for this week's SEC Tournament in Hoover and will open play on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. ET against either LSU or Mississippi State.  FOLLOW THIS LINK for more Florida Gator information.
