I Hope She Dumps The Boyfriend

Tonight I am serving this young couple when the guy finishes ahead of her and ask me to pack the leftovers for him. She hasn't yet finished but he doesn't seem to care so I pack up his leftovers. Normally I let them pack it but it was slow so what the heck. He had an air about him that I didn't like at all. He was just full of himself.

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

HAPPY INDEPENDENTS' DAY!

Yes, the spelling above is correct. I mean just that: independent food service operators, owners and those who work for them.



This week, July 1st - 7th is National Independents' Week.



It’s that time of the year to celebrate the backbone of the restaurant and food services industry. I am referring to those outlets totally independent of the big corporate chains.



These are the ‘Mom and Pop’, ‘Chef-owned’ and operated restaurants, haute cuisine, white table cloth,… Continue

Tabletop Lighting Increased Costs

Less customers, higher cost of supplies.....it is endless. Independent owner/operators probably feel the pinch the most. Our strategy has been to cut out the middle man and go direct.

TED TALKS VIDEO

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.
