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 I think large chains are becoming antiquated and outdated.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: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.
