Guide Comments:
I stayed at the Garden Hotel with my son and we were both tired after a longer trip from Shanghai than we anticipated. He had his dinner in the hotel room over cartoons (he’s three) and so I decided not to adventure too far away from the hotel. With him in the stroller, we popped across the main building to the Lotus Pavilion.
Uncrowded and poorly lit, I was a little worried it wasn’t open. But once we got past the dim entrance, things looked a little more lively. The menu is somewhat limited – a nice change from the forty pages usually presented at typical Chinese restaurants. I asked what the local specials were and was happily surprised with what I received. Sometimes Chinese dishes come dripping in gluggy sauces, but these dishes were all light and flavorful.
* Assorted sautéed mushrooms were delicate with just the perfect amount of salty sauce. There was a large variety in the dish – at least seven different types of mushrooms.
* Tender bamboo shoots came in a bed of thinly sliced red peppers and shredded greens, maybe chives or garlic shoots. The sauce had a nice, subtle flavor that let you taste the essence of the different vegetables.
* Stewed pork with sweet potato – with this one, I was sure there’d be a gluggy sauce, but no. The sweetest of the dishes, the potatoes and pork almost tasted as if they’d been candied. But the potatoes were perfectly soft on the inside and slightly crunchy on the outside. I skipped the fatty pork. This dish was good enough for dessert.
Bottom line: Lotus Pavilion isn’t necessarily a place to seek out but if you’re in the neighborhood (the hotel is very near the Master of the Nets Garden), it’s worth a stop for lunch or dinner.

Puerto Rico

Gameplay in Brief:
In Puerto Rico, players compete to run successful plantations, growing corn, coffee, sugar, tobacco and indigo. Each turn, players choose from several roles (e.g. mayor, builder, captain), each of which gives them different abilities. The goal is to use these abilities to construct buildings and ship goods efficiently, becoming the player to earn the most victory points.
For 3 to 5 players, ages 12 and up. About 90 minutes per game.
Puerto Rico was designed by Andreas Seyfarth.
Puerto Rico was published in 2002 by Rio Grande Games in the U.S. and Alea in Germany. It has also been published by a number of other game companies, including Albi, Tilsit, and Stratelibri.
Puerto Rico is an economic game with variable player roles. It also has a city-building component.
Also by Andreas Seyfarth:
About a dozen games designed by Andreas Seyfarth have been published, including Thurn and Taxis, San Juan (a card game based on Puerto Rico), Manhattan, and Airships.
Puerto Rico won the 2002 Deutscher Spiele Preis, the 2002 International Gamers Award for Multi-Player Strategy Game, a 2002 Meeples Choice Award. It was also my pick as the best board game of 2002.

Ticket to Ride: Europe

Ticket to Ride: Europe is for 2 to 5 players, ages 8 and up. It was designed by Alan R. Moon and published by Days of Wonder.
In addition to a new map, Ticket to Ride: Europe adds three significant new gameplay elements to the original game: ferries, tunnels, and stations.
Ferries: Building a ferry route requires the use of one or more locomotive (wild) cards, depending on the route.
Tunnels: Building tunnels is more risky than building standard routes. When you play the cards to build a tunner, you must also turn over the top three train cards from the deck. If any of them matches the color you are playing, you must add that many of the same color from your hand to finish the tunnel. If you can’t, or decide not to, you take back your cards and your turn is over.
Stations: Playing a station allows you to use another player’s route to complete a destination ticket. Each player has three stations, Playing the first costs one train card, the second costs two matching train cards, and the third costs three matching train cards. At the end of the game, players score bonus points for any unused statiions.

Go Video VR4940 DVD Recorder/VCR Combo
If you would like to replace that old VCR, but would also like to get a DVD recorder, why not get both. With the Go Video VR4940 you can have both a VCR and DVD recorder in a single unit. The VCR section is a fully-functional VHS HiFi stereo unit, while the DVD section is both a progressive scan DVD player and a DVD-R/-RW format DVD recorder with both analog and firewire video input capability. In addition, you can copy your old home-made video tapes to DVD or dub non-copyprotected DVDs onto VHS tapes. The VR4940 is great way to bridge the old with the new in video recording.

Need A Black Box…
I just got my first DVD recorder to go along with my TV/VCR setup. I’m looking for something that works like my stereo receiver which will allow me to hook the TV, VCR and DVD recorder together so I can recorder from TV to tape, TV to DVD, DVD to tape or Tape to DVD without anything more than fliiping the switch. Can anyone recommend a piece of equipment to do this that is not too expensive? Right now, I’m fiddling with wires when I want to do the taping and it’s driving me nuts!

From Walt:
I’d like to learn more about TiVo. I’ve heard I can burn movies off cable tv onto DVDs with it. Do you have info on it?
From Your Guide:
To start, check out TIVO’s website:
Basically, TIVO is a hard-disc video recorder with a built-in programming system for recording TV shows — however, for the programming system to work — you must hookup your TIVO to a phone line as well as your cable, satellite, or antenna.
You can record and store shows on the TiVO hard drive and then copy them to VHS or DVD whenever you want as you must delete the recordings off the TIVO as its hard drive fills up.
TIVOs have standard AV inputs and outputs just like a VCR or DVD recorder.
In fact, Pioneer makes a DVD recorder/TIVO combo unit that sells for about $1,100.
In addition, TIVO owners are generally very happy with the product. I don’t own one my self — but I have sold them in my past life in retail – and I know several people that own them.
The only negative aspect of TIVO is that the TIVO recorder has two way communication with “TIVO Central” – In other words, TIVO headquarters has the capability of know what you are recording and watching with the unit – for instance, TIVO central was able to determine how many times TIVO owners recorded and played back the Janet Jackson Superbowl performance.
