    I'm not sure the "answer" to #3 is correct. Although I've ever actually stayed there, I don't think the Greensboro Inn has biscuits or pancakes.? Maybe I'm wrong.

  3. Rae Alton says:

    Hey, k! Good catch. doesn't believe us (or perhaps has something against delicious biscuits?) Thanks for looking out.

  4. This was a good Friday laugh! Thanks!
