BENDING over backward to please. Mark is the propietor, he eats nails for breakfast and loves to fish black marlin. His Filipino lady administrator, is big time making her customers happy. They were the real deal. The price, HEY, you can see they aren't making a pile of money, but making a LOT of people happy.
