Thank you, Michael..It's Jo Lynne..sort of like Billy Joe Bob..the more names you have on the first line, the bigger the trailer. (OK, never owned one, but happened to get born below the Mason Dixon Line, but I still count as a SF native).

We have been building the structure for Guest First (www.guestfirstgroup.com) as I have been expanding the chef consultancy functions of the agency (will be up soon, I hope). Today we arranged for the old corporate chef for one of the cruise lines to take over the consulting chefs as well as the emergency chefs, as Howard Cummins continues to deal with our management recruiting. All and all it's been a challenging two months.

Thank you all for your comments. We have added a page of links to Howard Cummins space, Prohospitalitysearch.com, with links to many good recent articles about the industry, mostly from the management side. www.prohsospitalitysearch.com/links.html - please enjoy.

Up to my neck in IT and internet presentation, thank you very much for asking. Hope all is well.

Hate to ask this, but we've met? Just asking. It's possible that I am just slipping a cog here.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

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.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

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?

TED: David Sengeh: The sore problem of prosthetic limbs - David Sengeh (2014)

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.
