One of those "teaching moments" just occurred this past weekend. While out playing basketball with my son and daughter, the ball happened to roll to a particular bush. While retrieving the ball, I spied a bird's nest inside the bush. After looking a little more closely, I realized that the eggs inside the nest were not the same.
Throughout the first year of my tenure here at Townsquare Media, I drank lots of coffee. The biggest reason was because it is a freebie. The company, for some reason, allows us (on their dime) to drink as much of the stuff as we want without having to plunk down any change. But after a while, I realized that the caffeine in the coffee wasn't just giving me a "boost," it was making me irritable, too.
I absolutely LOVE this salad! It's one of the most flavorful salads I've ever had and I want to share it with you. I enjoy a salad most days here at the station thanks to my wonderful wife, Jenny, who actually enjoys making them. Over the past couple of years, she's experimented with different combinations for my salads, and with this one she struck gold!
Have you ever played dumb at work? C'mon now, let's be honest...playing dumb once in a while can be beneficial to the preservation of our employment, save us from getting stuck in the mire of office politics, and...possibly make our workplace more efficient! "What was that last part?" you ask. Let me explain this double-sided situation...
I was mowing the other afternoon and my lawn (weeds primarily) had grown fast and thick thanks to all of the rain we've had. I had lots of clover, which added a light-colored softness to the yard. As I mowed, I noticed all the many bees that were busy harvesting the pollen from the clover; bumblebees, honey bees and other little creatures that look like bees.
Whenever Father's Day rolls around my thoughts always turn to Dad, who isn't physically here any more. He passed away several years ago. I think of him many other days, as well, but especially on Father's Day. It's a day that I'm reminded of all the things he taught me, spoken and unspoken, both good and bad. It's a day of reflection for me, as a dad, just as much as it's a day of celebration for all the "dads" in the family.
Out of all the wonderfully palate-pleasing creations Jenny cooks and bakes, this one is my very favorite! To me every slice is a slice of heaven and once I take a bite of this pie, I always have the hardest time putting the fork down. I'm not exaggerating when I write that I could, literally, devour a whole banana cream pie. I don't - but I could!
No, he doesn't want a tie for Father's Day. I know it's hard to think of something to give him, especially since what he would normally want, and what you can afford, he usually buys for himself. Things he really wants, you probably can't afford. So what to get dad for Father's Day? I have struggled with this same dilemma for years. Here are some suggestions you may not have thought about.
I don't even need to try to gain the attention of men for this blog. We all know that as soon as men see the word, "bacon," their eyes are immediately locked. So here's an easy recipe using bacon that will go great for Father's Day or any occasion and with any beverage (wink, wink!). Savor the bacon flavor of these treats!
As Jenny and I contemplate selling our home, we began investigating ways that will improve our chances of succeeding in that goal. I thought I would share these ideas with you just in case you find yourself in the same position in the not-so-distant future. Be sure to do your best at taking care of these problems before trying to sell your home. The more problems you eradicate, the better your chances of selling your home.
