Predictably Unpredictable

Posted on January 11, 2008 at 8:50pm 3 Comments

Is it like this everywhere... completely unpredictable? does ANYONE know when they're REALLY going to have a busy day? or a really slow day? those are the ones i'd like to have some notice about... you know, so i don't make a full rack of bread that sits there and has to get sold cheaper tomorrow...

I guess that's part of the fun in this business, isn't it... predicting the unknown... guessing what's gonna happen and trying to hit the mark every day.

Hi Oleg
We'll look forward to making lunch for your daughter someday!

Online ordering is something we aspire to eventually... right now we're just a 2.5 person operation -myself, my husband and the occasional backup help, so adding another source of attention would be a bad idea at the moment. We're just about 2 years old, so we're finally getting to the point where we're beginning to see some profit which we expect to be able to put into hiring some staff and upgrading our services/equipment/systems... so maybe by next year we'll be able to do that.
Additionally, our community is pretty small, so I don't know how much online ordering would get used... and we don't have a same-day courier to get orders for bread/sweets out of town in a timely manner...

but the community is growing, and we will definitely be growing with it. :D

Hello Kera,

I was looking through your site and thought it's too bad you're not somewhat lower on the map... my daughter is on GFCF diet and it would be nice to go out to eat and actually buy her something as well.. Oh well, perhaps we'll make it up your way some day and definitely will stop by.

I also noticed that you don't have online ordering for takeout. Is that something that would be of interest to you, provided you didn't really have to do anything or change anything, other than fulfill orders that would be coming via a regular fax? If that's of interest to you - my company can certainly assist. Please drop me a line if you're interested. Thanks & Happy New Year!

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.

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.
