Future Salsa in the Making

We plant our seeds, we water them, we hope for some sunshine, we water them some more then one day a little green sprout muscles its way through the soil. That little sprout is going to be a delicious ingredient in my homemade fresh salsa, or perhaps a pickle or even just picked and eaten right off the plant in my backyard. It doesn’t really matter. What matters is that you planted the seed, you watered it, you hoped for sunshine and you believed that little sprout would make it to the light of day in time. It’s like the giant timber bamboo success metaphor in my good friend Greg Bell’s book: Water the Bamboo. For this type of bamboo, you plant the seeds, you water the soil for year one, not

100 People Project | What do you need?

It’s simple, I’m going to ask 100 people “what do you need?” Then I’ll spend 15 minutes helping them meet that need for free, yep FREE.

In your mind you have all of these great things to say, but you just can’t articulate it at that moment. Been there, done that! Man, does that make you feel like an

I'm going to eat chocolate cake for breakfast!

I was perusing Facebook this morning and ran across an article that my cousin Cindy Dunbar posted. It boasted that eating chocolate cake for breakfast is good for you and may even help you lose weight. Yessssss! Here’s a link to the article from fromthegrapevine.com. Anyone that knows me knows I have a huge sweet tooth. So I’ll be doing some serious research on this topic. And to make myself feel better about this experiment, I read more about a Syracuse research study on the topic. Check that out here. I’m a very lucky descendant from a chocolate cake making diva. My mom made the best chocolate cake. My cousins and their kids have dubbed it Aunt Carol’s cake. In an effort to make you a heal
