Steve Paterson commented on Erin Martin's blog post Your Craziest "In the Trenches" Restaurant Story?
"Two middle aged and extremely drunk golfers getting a hand job at the bar by a morbidly obese and very fugly prep cook after her shift. I am not kidding or exaggerating."

"Que the music..."

...This is the end

Beautiful friend

This is the end

My only friend, the end

Of our elaborate plans, the end

Of everything that stands, the end

No safety or surprise, the end

I'll never look into your eyes...again

Can you picture what will be

So limitless and free

Desperately in need...of… Continue

Holiday Concert Time (but not holiday music)...and Happy Boxing Day

Perhaps a good time to post some truly rare and awesome live music.

Enjoy the holiday weekend!!!

Pavarotti and Jon Bon Jovi "Let it Rain/Fa Che Piova"

I'm a moderate Bon Jovi fan but this song is perfect! I read that this has never been recorded in a studio and was written personally by Jon for Luciano and only ever performed here live...

The Pav and Bryan Adams "O Sloe Mio"

Simply awesome!...and a little… Continue

Julie & Julia...a movie review and a lot less...(surprise bonus included!)

I have to confess, I have never been a huge fan of Julia Child. It's not that I ever had any issues with her personally, she just wasn't my 'thing'. I now realize that this was probably a mistake. I should have made her my thing. My bad!

As a young and aspiring gourmet cook in my teens, I was more interested in Chef Martin Yan's Cooking Show, Yan Can Cook.

I could actually watch his… Continue

Lessons in Boh Safety from Calamity Jane

Posted on October 24, 2009 at 10:58am 3 Comments

Watching this video, at first I was slightly amused, then confused, then concerned, and eventually reached the climactic point of astonishment.

You simply have to see this to believe it!

This video could easily be used by any restaurant manager or even corporate to teach employees what NOT to do if a fire erupts in the kitchen.

There are so many mistakes made by this one employee, you could easily write a quiz to see how many mistakes people catch by watching… Continue

Thanks Steve. I actually turned on Daniel Poon to the site this morning. (Hector - CEO of Neptune's son) Daniel has a very cool website he created that I will forward to you. He's a Cordon Bleu trained chef and created a website to show his home cooking which rivals most restaurants. Not only are the recipes there, but he photographs steps and such and does a great job. He and his fiance created it from scratch.

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.
