Cool... literally, too!

The first word on that sign looks like "Mansion." Other than "restaurant," the rest of it is beyond my ability to decipher.

pancion poljice restoran picerija gril
a pancioner is someone that is retired as in pensioner. poljice is the plural form of police. restoran has already been covered. picerija is a pizzeria. and gril is a grill. those last two words are Serbified English.

Makes sense. Picerija almost looks like Spanish.

Were you able to figure all of that out yourself from the sign or did you get the story on the name from the owner?

I learned Serbo-Croatian at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA.

SC, small world again
I don't know if the jumps are still there and as you can see from that picture, there was a bit of a blizzard going on at the time.

While it doesn't fit in to your categories, I just read a book that was pretty good that you might like.

The God Delusion, by Richard Dawkins
Amazon.com: The God Delusion: Richard Dawkins: Books

Another really good read that is perfect for the winter season (and a true story as well) is:

The Worst Journey in the World, by Apsley Cherry-Garrard
Amazon.com: The Worst Journey in the World: A Tale of Loss and Courage in Antarctica: Apsley Cherry-Garrard: Books

This is one of my favorite books. And we think it's cold here........
