"If we couldn't laugh, we would all go insane"-Jimmy Buffett
So, here's a little about me. I started as a bartender for an Applebee's franchise in 1995, I saw the Corporate Trainers and thought, "Hey! I could do that" I worked my way up through the trenches, eventually opening 70 Applebee's in around 25 states and 6 different countries before deciding to take a new career path. In January of this year, I got the awesome opportunity to become a Training Coordinator for Pinkberry, an up and coming frozen yogurt concept. I feel super lucky to be at the ground level of a company that is getting ready to EXPLODE throughout the nation. Contact me if you want to know anything else.

Every week we introduce a new cheese and invite you to find it in your area, buy it, try it and then dicuss it with us.

Hey Captain Stewie! Long time no talk. This is such a cool site. So sorry to hear you are not with Applbee's anymore. I was hoping this aquisition would give us a chance to hang a bit in CA sometime.

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?
What drove David Sengeh to create a more comfortable prosthetic limb? He grew up in Sierra Leone, and too many of the people he loves are missing limbs after the brutal civil war there. When he noticed that people who had prosthetics weren’t actually wearing them, the TED Fellow set out to discover why — and to solve the problem with his team from the MIT Media Lab.
We live in a world of unseeable beauty, so subtle and delicate that it is imperceptible to the human eye. To bring this invisible world to light, filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg bends the boundaries of time and space with high-speed cameras, time lapses and microscopes. At TED2014, he shares highlights from his latest project, a 3D film titled "Mysteries of the Unseen World," which slows down, speeds up, and magnifies the astonishing wonders of nature.
