who's to say that love is not food

So, we enter into this as though food/wine is the ultimate commodaity(sp?). But what in this entire existence is more than what food/wine gives to us than the liquid means of expression. I want to know this from those that have chosen this way, does it only end in networking or did we do this to experience our choice of lifestyles! I ask only in the vein of living and of lost. To me those that embody our choices also embody our emotions. I want for once to hear from someone that in the throws… Continue

WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER COMPETE WITH YOUR OWN CUSTOMERS

The other day I was watching a hockey game between the Detroit Red Wings and the Vancouver Canucks. The game came from British Columbia, so it contained Canadian commercials.



I was surprised and shocked to see a 30-second spot prepared and aired by Kraft Foods®, the maker of this brand extension, Delicio Ultimate®, a pizza they claim is even better than those produced by independent pizza restaurants.
