This week 06-02-15 Come on get out of bed!!!! I've got a bike that I've had since 1979. I used to ride it everyday. I had it here at church thinking if it was here, I would ride it more often. It's been here 3 years and I haven't ridden it once. I thought if I took it home I could ride it on those mornings that I woke up at 4am. It would be better than lying in bed wide awake, and I would get some exercise. For this to work I had to make it as easy as possible so I... Read More

It... Read More

This week 05-12-15 Service Included If you read my emails much you'll know I'm a restaurant fanatic. I found a book written by a girl that was a head waiter at Per Se, Thomas Keller's super Hoity Toity restaurant in New York. The book is called "Service Included" She applied for the job before the restaurant opened and she tells the story about all of the things she had to learn, to be able to do the job. They took French lessons so they could pronounce the menu, they took... Read More
