3 Last-Minute Ideas to Promote Mother's Day

Here's my quick list of how to capture some Mother's Day traffic for your restaurant:

1. This Saturday - Head to the ball fields. Arm yourself with a little lemonade and about 200 flyers. Talk up that brunch and get Mother's Day brunch plans in the minds of the soccer, t-ball and baseball parents. 

2. Hit the neighborhood. Visit your neighboring businesses to hand out some sweet desserts, a few menus/flyers and spread the word. Try salons, day spas, dry cleaners and…

Serving the Community & Enjoying Ourselves

There is an unbelievable amount of activity in the bagel shop recently. We’ve had several break downs of equipment so I haven’t made the time to sit and write. I’ve been out and about big time, from the roof to inside the oven. No joke. I wish I took a picture from the roof. I do not want to go back up:)

Before you could say farm-to-the-table, there was my daddy

My daddy, never dad or father but daddy, loved to grow vegetables that along with fishing were his joys. I can’t rant and rave about his cooking skills, he could ruin a steak or burger on the grill in a New York minute but he could grow veggies. It was never one variety of tomatoes it was plum, big boy, cherry, yellow and other varieties or the cucumbers were the regular ones you know from salads, pickling cucumbers and lemon cucumbers. Corn and peppers, you name he grew it, out in our backyard… Continue

Every year for the past 40+ years, the Schmidt family bakery in Batesville, Indiana has produced these unique cherry delights called Cherry Thing-a-lings™. Thing-a-lings have an almost cult-like following with shipments being requested months in advance.

Playing hooky

Just wanted to take the time to give a shout-out to all the fantastic members of the restaurant industry who braved the frigid conditions to go into work today.



Outside my window, a blanket of snow 12 inches deep covers the ground. All area schools are closed today, as well as many doctor’s offices and day care centers. People don’t expect their kids to have school today, and many have opted to work from home rather than endure the freezing temperatures, slick roads and mounds of… Continue

2009 BE the CHANGE you wish to see.

It was the week before the election. I left Lexington, KY and made my way to Dayton, OH. The gang was late. I waited anxiously, texting to confirm ETA's and yelling for Nicole to hurry up. Slowly but surely the crew arrived and, finally, Nicole strolled out looking like "Obama Girl"…



Including bright blue heels.



I asked, "You sure you want to wear those shoes??!! Then, I decided to drop it. We were late and I figured what the hell, maybe it will work to our… Continue

Beyond Voting: Government is Everyone's Every Day Responsibility

Hello FohBoh, it's been a while.



It's really been an incredible and exciting year on so many levels it defies description. For me, one of the most important developments was the financial collapse on Wall Street and the subsequent outrage by the American People.



I think this year, our electorate has been energized like never before with the potential candidacy of Hillary Clinton and the candidacies of "celebrity" politicians like Barack Obama and Sarah Palin. And for those… Continue

What it is like being a new employee.

The quote below came from a new employee at a convenience store. She say a lot in one sentence. And we wonder why new employees quit at the end of the first day.



"Be nice to the trainee. Yes, they suck at working the register. Yes they have no clue what they are doing. Yes they are probably slowing down your busy life. But please understand that being a trainee suck, and knowing you suck...will it sucks."

TED TALKS VIDEO

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.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)
