On Monday, July 5, 2021, Sean Hannity did an hour long interview with Dr. Eduardo Rodriguez of NY Langone. The story and interview were incredible. Worthy of a repeat on Youtube if you missed it the first time. But I have to tell you about Dr. Eddie. Gunner was in 2nd grade, playing Little League … Continue reading Dr. Eddie, Sean Hannity, ABC News, and My Kid.
Wrapping a gift is the best part of giving a gift.... at least it is to me. As a kid, I was an only child. My Dad was also an "only", so our holidays were smaller, fewer family members. I was secretly jealous of friends who had large families, raucous holidays with cousins, more akin … Continue reading 20210611: Wrapping Presents
I was trying to do a good thing and got smacked in the face. A local company has begun to thrive, and I was happy for their new success. For the first time, they were bringing in a shift to work on Saturday. A few of the workers grumbled, but I see the big picture. … Continue reading When All Else Fails, Do It Yourself and Don’t Experiment.
One of my best girlfriends moved away about 20yrs ago. We caught up with each other over the weekend and laughed for an hour reliving our night of The Slumber Party. I have to tell you all the story..., at least part of it. It was a perfect storm of coincidences. Because we owned a … Continue reading The Slumber Party and The Gypsy
What is it about Bread, the staff of life??? Allegedly, it was a grain shortage which started the Syrian conflict, which beget the great migration into Europe.

Tonight, I was standing in the meat section of the grocery store, trying to decide whether or not to purchase the scraps of a beef tenderloin, which is Filet Mignon....... for $21/lb.... on sale. It's normally $27/lb at our grocery store. I remember when whole beef tenderloins were $10.99/lb and the butcher would trim them … Continue reading 20210610: Filet Mignon and the $1000 Pot of Chili.
Last year for us. By year three, I had befriended Leigh Barnes, who owned the Memphis Bridal Gallery. She was the undisputed queen of "bridal and fluff" and a penultimate go-to source for about a 200 mile radius. I learned a great deal from her, and she was funny/bright/professional/self-deprecating..... I liked her. She was kind … Continue reading 20210530: Bridal Show Year Three
We learned a great deal in year one of the Bridal Show and refined our efforts for year "deux". Background is no longer necessary. The big difference in year two was the addition of ABC News. We had a local murder in town, and the B&B was heavily involved in assisting the FBI (feeding them … Continue reading 20210527: Bridal Show, Year Two, and The Network Offer.
The bridal show was a natural outcome of a confluence of events. We bought the B&B in March of 1994, it was a private sale we had worked on with the original owners for 2 1/2yrs. At times, we doubted whether or not the sale would EVER be completed. During that 2 1/2yrs, I had … Continue reading 20210526: The Bridal Show, Part One
