Okay, I will admit it, I have a fear of frying. I have had this fear since I was a kid. Something about having a huge pot of boiling oil on the stove that if it tipped over could burn me severely or could cause a fire instantly, sends me into… Read full post »

The store is a block away from where I live and the mission of the store to encourage… Read full post »
Has anyone else noticed the news on Foxconn, the Taiwanese company that manufactures the Ipads and Iphones? According to the rumors on the internet, another Taiwanese company has landed orders on the Iphone5 called Pegatron.
A report just came out by the Commission on Wartime Contracting that at least $60 billion was wasted spending in Iraq and Afghanistan. Gosh, $60 billion would have gone a long way towards solving the budget crisis of the United States.
Recently, a colleague who I had shared an… Read full post »
Okay, for full disclosure, although I am highly educated, I have watched the Kardashians on and off over the last few years. It started off that I would watch if I was home, tired and just wanted to "veg out" in front of the TV. During the last year, having… Read full post »
I read in my meanderings on the internet a woman concerned that she could not admit that she practiced yoga on her blog, or through her twitter account lest potential employers think that her head was in the clouds.
Are we in a world, where in order to get hired you… Read full post »
There is a furor in Chicago over the possible shut down of one of the star products, in the local, artisanal ice cream scene, Nice Cream that was first reported here, by Monica Eng of the Chicago Tribune on August 5th.
