The Holy Grail Press is proud to announce the Grand Opening of its
Regional Headquarters in Portland, Oregon. It’s not that we particularly need to have an office in Portland, it
just seemed like the best way to get Michael Soetaert out of our Main Office here in Seattle. Even being in
charge of a major publishing company’s regional headquarters, Soetaert apparently still has nothing better to do than
play disc golf.

Dinner at Chez Rupert
Good evening. My name is Ruben,
and I will be your Water Steward this evening. Tonight we are featuring locally purified organic water, gently poured
into a hand cut crystal that is kept precisely at 72 degrees. Each ice cube is then added one at a time, to prevent
shocking the water, giving you the perfect ice water experience. It is a bargain at twenty-four dollars a glass.
And for an after dinner treat, might I suggest saving room for our internationally famous Aqua Brûlée?
While you are deciding, might I introduce Carlos, our Crouton Chef.

Rutherford B. Hayes
Presidents Day is just around the corner, and since apparently
nobody in the United States’ know’s how to use an apostrophe, it means’ we get to choose which president
to celebrate, and this’ year, here at HGP, weve chosen Rutherford B. Haye's!
Rutherford Birchard Hayes (no relation to Isaac) was born in 1822 in
Ohio, the state he called home until he died there of a heart attack in 1893. (Rutherford B. Hayes, 2006) In between
he was a lawyer, a congressman, the governor of Ohio, and the 19th president of the United States (that’s
the United States of America, not Mexico).
Stop me if any of this sounds familiar...

Remember the Rabbit
Bobby Boxwood had begged his mother for a rabbit. The magazine advertisement that sold the rabbit and the
cage said that you could go into business for yourself. Breeding rabbits. It was possible to make $200 a month.
A veritable fortune.
