The Social Networking Debate and A Scheduling Note

No Cooking Tonight

We'll be making Matzoh Ball Soup for Rosh Hashanah next week!

I worked late tonight, came home, turned on the tube and headed right to the DVR to watch the Debate. I got it up and running and then launched Twitter. It was abuzz with debate chatter. I wish I were a sociologist or a political scholar or a statistician or a woman with ESP, because I’d like to analyze the Tweets. It seems to me that the overwhelming majority of tweets were in favor or Obama.

I’m Tired

I don’t know if it’s the trip to Vegas this weekend or if I am battling the Ebola virus that is going around, but I’m tired — pooped — exhausted — I need to get to bed and sleep it off. That said, I need to mention that Tenten is on his way to DC in 10 days and we plan to meet. He says he will not get on camera, which is a shame since viewers are curious. I’ll see what I can do. I am a pretty darn good saleswoman! 🙂

I will leave you with a gallery of shots of the DEElicious dinner we made tonight.

I was very excited and thought I’d check my mailbox first because the contest registration documentation stated that finalists would be notified mid-September. Logic told me that if an announcement was posted that the finalists were selected that probably meant mail was probably waiting in their boxes.

Celebrity Chefs

Getting Smart

While reading the article about Warren Buffet’s 10 Tips to Wealth on the AOL Welcome Screen this morning, I stumbled onto an equally as interesting (to me), less common sense bit of information article about Celebrity Chefs and the 10 Secrets They Won’t Tell You. There are mentions of the big celebrity chefs; Emeril, Bobby, Giada, Sarah, Paula and Rachel and … well, you get the picture. There is a brief “discussion” of when recipes go wrong, how you’re not likely to ever see one of these chefs in one of their restaurants and how rising to celebrity chef stature is tough.

Where Does the Time Go?

Time

How often have you noted that time passes quickly, yet you look back on that period of time and it suddenly seems as though it’s been an eternity?

During tonight’s broadcast someone asked me if the year has gone quickly or if it feels like it’s been a year since I began the Justopia Cooks broadcast and as I took a moment to reflect I thought the answer was really both
