Ask Mongo
Hey Mongo: We are looking for the best place for breakfast in Bandon. What's your advice?
BTW - we love your website and have been daily visitors for years. Keep up the good work.
Regards, Terry

Mongo: Hi there Terry, it's great having fans like you. The best breakfast in Bandon has to be the Sunday Brunch at Lord Bennetts. Try the Crab Eggs Benedict. The rest of the week we like the Minute Cafe. Try the Veggie Omelet. Thank for writing!

joke of the day
A husband walks into the bedroom holding two aspirin and a glass of water.
His wife asks, "What's that for?"
"It's for your headache."
"I don't have a headache."
He replies, "Gotcha!"
