10:55 am
the more upscale bed and breakfast. we always thought it is better to have a place people come to that state better than when they stayed at home and they will have a bare-bones type of operations. they may as well stay-at-home coming and treat them solve so that's what we try to do is come up with new ideas whether they are small are larger ones so i repeat guests don't always see the same think maybe little or larger things. >> it was quite a labor of love some hiccups along the way a strong learning curve when you have a bed and breakfast with guests and how to deal with things and of course the breakfast you always try to improve the breakfast starting out we laugh with we used to start breakfast or what type of breakfast we used to serve so
