Profile Information

Menu Network, Inc
Discovering new food, Discovering new wines, Making Friends, Networking, Deals, Other
For ten years I dined and wrote my way throughout Europe and Asia before returning to the United States. Despite the controversy in our country, or perhaps because of it, I believe America is the best place to live on the planet! So we returned home and set about merging passion, skill, and knowledge into Menu Network, Inc., a national restaurant directory and hub for Everyday Diners. It is a place where reviews are respected and yappers take a step back; a place where creativity, excitement and brand of individual restaurants and restaurateurs can be uniquely displayed.
Years in the Industry
A lifetime's worth and daily gaining more.

Just wanted to let you know that I have changed the name of the Portland Food Network to the Pacific NorthWest Food Network. I wanted to broaden the scope and geography of it all. There is a lot more going on than just Portland/Oregon. Invite your friends to the group and start posting. (I know it says portlandfoodnetwork, but I could not change that part)


Come join and make it the best Group on FOHBOH!

Hello Kathleen & Happy New Year!

My company offers a service that allows restaurants a simple and hassle-free way to offer takeout ordering online from their web site (and our site). Looking at your network - I thought perhaps we could collaborate where you could offer online ordering as part of your network in addition to your current services. I'm sure there are a number of ways how our respective services could complement each other.

If you have any interest in discussing the possibilities - please drop me a line.

Delighted to be invited to be your friend. I am very busy at the moment preparing for two Trade Shows next Month. The first is Hospitality 08 in Dublin(Ireland) from Feb 4. Two weeks after, there is Hotelympia in London.
But I always make time for friends. Looking forward to exchanging news and views.

Hi Kathleen, I wish to welcome you to this unique site. It will give all of us in the Hospitality industry a platform to interact with ideas and experiences. I hope that you walked most of the journey as you ate your way across Europe and Asia !!!! I am looking forward to making lots of new friends through our special forum. You have a good Irish name. I live in Ireland and my wife is also named Kathleen.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
