One of the great perks of working in a bakery: hot oatmeal raisin cookies right out of the oven with vanilla frozen yogurt on top...Mmmmmm. I don't endulge often, but it sure did make a good breakfast dessert this morning.

I was at Restaurant Depot the other day picking up some items for the store. When I left, I noticed that there were three carts just sitting in the parking l…

I don't have a lot of weaknesses when it comes to food. It is pretty easy for me to work here because I don't crave chocolates or candies or the bakery goods that we make. I do however have a soft spot when it comes to pretzels and kolochies. About a year ago, I signed up for Auntie Anne's monthly newsletter because I hands down prefer their wonderful pretzels. The newsletter often sends a coupon for buy one, get one free or other such offers. At the end of the month, it is not uncommon to find me at the mall getting a pretzel. Of course, they also include things other than coupons in the newsletter. This month, they had the hi…

A little game called Halo 3 was released at midnight this morning. It is predicted that this could be the biggest game launch in history with over 150 million dollars brought in over the course of 24 hours. I'm looking forward to playing this game in mid-October but will have to wait since I don't own a 360. Nevertheless, I'm excited to see the trilogy come to an end, and the game has gotten very positive reviews both for its game play and story line. So, if you are one of the thousands taking today off of work to enjoy the first day of Halo 3, I hope you enjoy it.

The US and German teams both rolled into the semifinals with 3-0 impressive 3-0 win…

Yesterday was the first day of Fall, but it seems as if the weather is convinced that it needs to force penitence upon us for the relatively easy summer that we have had. The next week's worth of weather will see us stay at the low 90's. Maybe by October we will get our first stretch of cooler weather. It not that the weather we have now is horrible. Nevertheless, I am ready for a permanent cool breeze.

I awoke early this morning to go to a dentist appointment. Upon arrival, I found out that my appointment was for tomorrow. :( Fortunately, t…

After several weeks of having my old monitor and computer sitting around our house, I finally got around to take it in for recycling today. My wife was kind enough to wake me up early when she got up, so I was able to get a move on it and go over to Carrollton in time to drop of the old 19" CRT and older P233 computer. I took it over to Intechra which does recycling for corporate business and individuals.

Thankfully, I know that this business will recycle or re-sell what I have dropped off, …

I didn't forget National Talk Like a Pirate Day, but we had too much going on up here for me to do it justice. Yesterday was one of those crazy days from start to finish. Hopefully everyone else was able to get a little pirate talk into their day for some added fun.

Quiz Day: How Good Are You?



You Are 72% Good




You are a good person. You do the best you can to be ethical, fair, and moral.

And as you know, being a good person means making hard decisions... and following them through.

If you're confronted with an ethical dilemma, you will usually do the right thing.

Of course you do slip up. No one's perfect. But you do your best to correct your missteps.

You are also probably: incredibly honest, especially with yourself

Right now you are on track to being: A respected leader

To be a better person: Be kind to someone who is not very kind to you

It seems like every time I read the paper I see another article telling of the great benefits of exercise. Today was no exception. A new study shows that both aerobic exercise and strength training help to combat blood sugar levels and therefore reduce the complications that can be associated with diabetes. It's a little more motivation to get back into a workout routine. After all, working out before any problems arrive at your door is the best way to go about it.

World Cup Update: Congratulations to the US team as the women defeated Nigeria to move on to face England in the elimination round. North Korea also moved forward despite their lose to Sweden in their final match of group play. They…

Yesterday was nice and relaxing. After staying out late for the pirate celebration on Saturday night and waking up for church on Sunday morning, I needed a day to take it easy. Thankfully, my wife was happy to join me for one of those wonderful two hour Sunday afternoon naps. Upon waking up from our slumber, we went to the mall to use up my Eddie Bauer gift card. I got one pair of jeans, one button up shirt, and one polo type shirt for 19 dollars after the 50 dollar gift card. I feel like I got a whole new fashion line. Besides, the jeans were greatly needed.

My wife and I went to Topz in Addison again last night. The second trip was even better than the first. We both tried their turkey burger with cheese and they were yummy. We agreed that the turkey burger just might be better than the Black Angus burger. I am going to have to remember when we go again in a couple of weeks to specify the sweet potato fries as the default is the standard potato which I do not care for but suffered through last night.

We also watched the first three episodes on the first season of the new Doctor Who. She was kind enough to sit down with me and give the show a go. I was pleasantly surprised to hear my wife say that she actually though i…

Friday in the News: In March 2005, researchers Thomas Fuchs and Ludger Woessman of Munich University concluded that computers make children dumber. They studied more than 100,000 15-year-olds across more than 30 countries and concluded, "Holding other family characteristics constant, students performed significantly worse if they have computers at home." In fact,they have "problem solving deficit disorder." The cure? Books and creativity. (This story brought to you by the WWDTM daily calendar.)

I met a group of friends last evening for trivia at the Flying Saucer in Addison to try our hand at the pop culture laden trivia again. We failed. Horribly. I'm pretty sure that we never scored higher than 50% on any of the four rounds. The quiz master had also changed the format a little bit which did not play to our strengths at all.

I'm still convinced that a number of people cheat during the trivia game by using their computers or phones to look up answers. It's unfortunate that people feel compelled to cheat. Nevertheless, I look at the examples that we have around us and it seems that cheating has become the norm. The Pa…

What a refreshing surprise I had this morning when I walk out of the front door to go to work, a cool breeze. It felt so good to be below 70 even if it was just for the early part of the day. I know that it will get warm again, but this is the first cool start to the day that promises more to come. Fall is right around the corner and it makes my heart sing. I love the cooler weather. Heck, I love downright cold weather, but I settle for the cooler weather that we get around here.

Well, the US women's team escaped with a tie yesterday against North Korea in a match that settled at 2-2. Fortunately, everyone except for Germany finished off with a tie yesterday. All of Group B recorded only one point …

The oncoming fall season always means that there are more than enough sports to keep me busy. It is the best time for baseball, and college football provides weekly entertainment and suspense. Added to the mix this year is the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup. The first match has already been played in the host country of China. Germany made a strong statement that it intended to defend its 2003 victory. By strong statement, I mean that they dominated Argentina 11-0. Impressive, most imp…

I haven't talked much about it, but I am excited about college football. The great upset of Michigan last week had me smiling all week. :) The Texas game against TCU this week has me a little bit nervous. The great thing about college football is that the unexpected can happen and normally does happen at least once a week. The is a constant flow to it throughout the season. Sure, the big powerful teams win most of the time. Yet, there is the occasional upset. Moreover, when two traditional titans go at it like OU and Miami today, you get to see some wonderful match-ups. As is our tradition on …

We do have some Sweet Wheat in the freezer; however, I do not expect them to be in this week due to an error in shipping. Come in today to get the best selection.

The last few days have been rather interesting in regards to the number selection for the blogger cards. The selection is random even if it does not seem that way. Today's number will break the recent trend. Perhaps today's number will also break the recent trend of unclaimed prizes.

I did forget to mention the other day that we got in our shipment of La Tortilla. We do have all varieties of the tortillas back in stock. These are perfect options for low carb lifestyles and Weight Watchers®.

I did some surfing on the websites that I posted yesterday. When I came across this link, it dawned on me that the bracelets that we all proudly wear around each day that sprouted up overnight with the Livestrong bracelet are simply a replacement from the Hollywood ribbon campaign of the late 90's. I've had this thought before, but it was always an in and …

Yesterday was one of those days. They seem to follow the nice relaxing days off as if to remind us that reality is back in force. The day itself was busy with orders coming in, going out, and deliveries being made; however, the real fun stated when I noticed that the website was down. Turns out that the server where our website is hosted crashed. Long story short, the website has now been moved to a new server and everything should be fine. I just hope that I don't have to go through that again any time soon.

On the plus side, the weather has …

It was pointed out to me that I forgot to list the code for shipping underneath the calendar on Saturday's post. I have gone back and changed it. Sorry for the inconvenience. The code is SAPPHIRE9. (Save 5 dollars off of any order of 55 dollars or more.)

Yesterday, I took the day off from the store. My wife and I celebrated our 6 month anniversary by sleeping in and going to Tokyo One in Addison for lunch with some friends. (We had our anniversary dinner on Saturday night at Daddy Jack's.) The rest of the day was spent in a lazy haze. The kind of day when nothing productive gets done except for naps and video games. In short, we relaxed. I hope that everyone else had a wonderful Labor Day also.

If anyone is looking for a great sushi bar, Tokyo One is a n…

We are open from 12 PM to 6 PM on Labor Day.

My wife and I found out that Friday nights are a great night for us to go out and enjoy a night on the town. We discovered this as we set down to dinner and started to receive the play by play for the game that was taking place at Trinity Christian Academy. It made the dinner conversation a little bit harder but a lot more humorous. On the plus side, we got home from the mall and had no problem walking into the house because it was lit so well from the football field. Really, it wasn't bad at all since the game ended by 10:30 P.M. However, we will start planning a few evenings out for Friday night home games. We might even wonder over to one of the games …
