Oh Yes, the FUN! I didn't have to get involved in the yelling matches, I was the secretary at our weekly managers meeting. What a group, eh? It was great for experiance, had a lady come behind the bar and choke me....that was about when I gave them my month notice.

Hello Phil,

I have to say in response to competing with the large chains, I can't agree with you. I think large chains are becoming antiquated and outdated. I would rather go to a different city and have food that is authentic to the area, not one size fits all. I like your idea and I wish you much success. Also, I noticed that there are a few comments below about organic I met one of my fellow organizers yesterday who makes organic deserts and candy. She is here in Indy, not to far to get quality food.

Please define what you mean by organic? and then I can see what I can do about your cream cheese.

Need more details about the cream cheese question.
Is it an ingredient? How much are you looking for and what would be the application?

Hi Phil,

No worries, I think we have all done the same thing. Thanks for the congrats on the wedding. Went down to Savannah at the beginning of December for that.
What type of restaurant would you like to open? I miss Detroit for the fact that there are so many great places to eat and all sorts of cuisine. Check out my website (you can get to it through my FohBoh page. It will highlight the places that I worked while living in Detroit.
Wishing you all the success life has to offer. Check out the gentlemen who has the most points (you can find him on the main page). He works for a financing group, might want to see what they have to offer.

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" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

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.
