  1. I’m still confused if IHOP really did change to IHOB. Seems really silly if they did. I hope all is well with you. If you have time read my latest article – I’d love your thoughts on it.

    • They did, but just temporarily to cause a buzz around their new burgers :)

      Thanks for the Parkrun info! I can’t wait to check it out.
