The lights were off and no one was home (just like at HQ)

I drove past a Dream Dinners store last night at 6pm and the place was dark and locked up tight. It didn’t look like anyone had been there all day. Funny, it used to be people came out on Friday nights with bottles of wine and put meals together.

The conversion has begun

If something doesn’t load correctly or simply doesn’t look right, that’s probably just me working in the background. I changing things around and making changes to all the names and links. It might cause the page to load slowly or maybe not at all. Fear not, it’s merely temporary and unless I’ve pushed the wrong button everything should come back in a minute or two.

This should take a day or two and you should barely notice I’ve done anything. Just remember update your links to WWW.MEALASSEMBLYWATCH.NET

All good things must come to an end

MealAssemblyWatch has been running steady and strong since 2007. But as we all know nothing last forever. (How’s that for a dramatic intro?) A situation has developed with the site that makes it necessary for me to change its name. Truth be told, I never actually owned the parent .COM domain name. The owner of that domain name and I have gone our separate ways and as such MealAssemblyWatch needs a new name. It actuality it’s not that big of a deal, but it does require some participation on your part. The site will stay exactly where it is, will continue to look the same as it does (until I give it a fresh coat of paint later this year), but will now be known by the ever so slightly different name of:


As of October 31 (Halloween night of all things) MealAssemblyWatch.com will no longer be valid. You will need to update your bookmarks, links or whatever else you use to get here to include the .NET name at the end of the address.

It’s a simple, but important change. All you need to do is update your links and everything else will stay the same.

I’ll try to give more details and backstory in the upcoming weeks.

Dinner Zen To Close in May

I’m very disappointed to report this one…

Dinner Zen, the locally owned dinner assembly store at South Lakes Village Center, will close its doors in May.

Dinner Zen To Close in May

Last Central Florida Let’s Eat! is closing

How strange, this seems to contradict the predictions made by so-called industry experts.

Let’s Eat! was one of services that opened throughout Central Florida, allowing people to get together in a fun atmosphere and cook batches of meals they’d take home to eat later. But between the novelty wearing off and the tough economy, the businesses suffered.
