Here's a good message from Chef Ryan Parker- He's a friend of mine on Facebook-

Chef Ryan says...
I dont mind if the reporters say that we played poorly. It's the point by point, all around beatdown as if they were jr high players.


What is worse is in every article written about the Final Four or Detroit or Michigan is that the state of Michigan is not worthy of positive press. I would like to see an article now written about the spartans got this far. With the hard work and blue collar style that has always made Michigan (the state and team) the backbone of the midwest. The simple truth of the matter is this: it is time to stop sitting back and letting the media tell us, and the whole world, the state is bad because of the car companies.
It is time for michiganders to find what is right about michigan and to celebrate it. Do you believe that anyone would want to move their business to Michigan if all they hear is what the general media portrays. I would like to remind everyone that Michigan is second, only behind California, in the country that produces enough (and varied enough) products, agriculturally to sustain itself, which is a heck of a feat.
Yes, I understand it is fashionable to say Michigan is down and out, and for the most part it is the truth. So how do we fix this? As a community we need to turn inward, find the positive, support your local businesses, local farmers, local restaurants, and all of the mom and pop retail outlets that you can.
Here is one suggestion that is easy to give a shot: Next time you go shopping, see if you can purchase at least 10% of your products that are made in Michigan.
Now some of these products may cost a few cents more, heck they may cost a few dollars more, but what will you be doing for YOURMichigan.
Think what we could do if we shortened our food supply chain, and kept our money in the state, and stopped buying as many products shipped in from other states and other countries.


The little step (the 10%) can generate millions of dollars that stay in the state of Michigan's economy.

OK, If you like this note, copy it to your own notes page and TAG 25 new people to send it to in Michigan.

GO State, as in GO Michigan!!!

Fresh since '74

I really have to agree with Chef Ryan! And would like to add that Earthy Delights is a Michigan company & we want to thank all of you for all of your support for the last 24 years!
Patti xoxo

TED TALKS VIDEO

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)

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" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
