Well, today is budget presentation to "ownership day" so a rather mundane yet stressful day will reach its apex at about 2:00. My work is complete and although I am very confident in the numbers, the outlook for the 2010 season for baseball is still somewhat bleak. If attendance improves then so will F&B. My team is in great spirits as we have probably weathered teh storm to some degree which initself is a confidance builder. The fact is, the restaurants will project improvements financially and that is a good thing.

Hi Christiane,
I am the guy that sent you a couple of ill-prepared comments sometime back. I wrote in my notes ( I was ashamed) to send a follow up querie to see how business was for you and that things were going well for you. I hope that you had a good holiday business and continue to wish you well.

I am truly sorry, that was extremely poor manners on my part, I had no right to comment on your discussion, especially with so many judemental quips. My quick retort was equally unimpressive and for that i am additionally sorry. Please accept my apologies.

Hi, I have been watching the dialogue of yours in the discussion, "Top 10 Management Gripes about Employees. While I am certain that i have missed the beginning tenor of your statements as well as your arguments, I thought that I would ask the question, "Is your establishment one of autocracy, or do you feel that the peolpe that work "with/for" you have value? You seem to be very passionate but I am curious if you believe that flinging the sardonic comments are serving you well in your argument? Your attitude does not seem to be one of a true artist or leader that trusts the people that you work with to deliver your product in a convivial manner. In your early assessment of yourgripes was one regarding everyone wanting to leave at the close of a day when a party of 10 walked in, you said everyone knows the business and food, you said that you are all a team, yet nobody wants to work for you when clearly a financial opportunity exists for all. If you are the true leader, you should aspire to inspire. I am sorry, but i have seen nothing inspirational in your points of view about your employees. The age of the Draconian Chef is over, forget about TV, make your staff happy and "have Fun". I know that i do not walk in your shoes and i am hopeful that you don't hate me for saying all of this. On balance, it is very difficult to lead people, but that really is your job, not cooking.
