Here's a great opportunity from +Yifat Cohen for an amazing conference!  Don't forget the hashtag #itstime2015  
 
We want to know what YOU think It's Time for.
Play to win a 3 day all-access pass to It's Time Conference.

In 2 weeks, a  a select group of powerful organizations, women and men will get together to achieve gender equity and empower women and girls at all levels to be leaders. You can be there too!

Here's how the game is played
It's 2015, yet many social dynamics haven't changed. We want to know what you think It's Time for.

1. Share your own story - in a post, in an image, in a short video - and let us know what YOU think It's Time for. You can share it all over the web - Google+, Twitter, FB, LinkedIn, Pinterest, your own blog. Have fun!

2. Use the Hashtag #itstime2015 so that we can track it with +NOD3x​ 

3. Spread the word get as many shares and comments as you can for that post, and other posts.

4. You have 5 days to really rock it! We'll announce the winners on Thur. April 23, 2015 at noon CST.

Need inspiration?
I'll start - 

It's time for each of us to find our unique voice and share it with the world. Gone is the chase of the shiny object. Gone are the day of copying others. Gone is the pursuit of external pacifiers, Novocains for the soul.
It's time to discover our passion, what truly fuels us, stand up and - unapologeticly - grab it with both hands and drown in its bliss.
That's what life is about, and it's time for all of us to have a taste. and then the whole cup. Why not? ;)

A great example of it is +Mia Voss​  - 
Mia Voss recently took a 3 week birthday celebration trip to Italy.. all by herself! Even when faced with a breakup and a cancer scare, Mia chose to push forward and celebrate her 50th birthday and celebrate with wine, restaurants & building new connections in another country. Lesson learned: just do it. YOU can do it. 

YOUR TURN
What do you think It's Time For?

Let us know. We're tracking :)

Hey Plussers, here's my new post featuring my amazing new Char-Broil Kettleman Charcoal Grill that Char-Broil graciously sent me to review!

I have to say I'm going back to the old school style grilling using hardwood charcoal, not only does it make food taste better, I love the aroma the hardwood gives off while cooking!  

For years I avoided charcoal grills because I thought they were too much work and I found out pretty quickly they're not!

I hope you enjoy the recipe for my Coffee Dry Rub as much as Lisa and I did, the pork chops were so tender, juicy and of course delicious!    Click on this link for a printable copy of the recipe   http://goo.gl/eYqs1c

Pork Chops and Chicken with Coffee Dry Rub
Ingredients
4 center cut pork chops
6 chicken legs or thighs
(or any combination of your favorite meats)
Coffee Dry Rub
4 teaspoons ground coffee
4 teaspoons sea salt
4 teaspoons chili powder
2 tablespoons brown sugar
½ teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon granulated garlic
½ teaspoon granulated onion
½ teaspoon ground mustard seed
½ teaspoon smoked paprika
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼-1/2 teaspoon cayenne (optional if you want some extra heat)

Instructions
light your charcoal then proceed to making the dry rub
In a small bowl add in all of the dry ingredients for the Coffee Dry Rub. Mix everything together, breaking apart any lumps.
rub both sides of the pork with generous amounts of the dry rub. I did both sides twice.
repeat the process with the chicken.
set pork and chicken aside for 20-30 minutes allowing the rub to penetrate the meat. (the pork may look a little wet when you're ready to grill)
Grill the pork chops and chicken on both sides over medium high heat, then move to indirect heat to finish cooking.
Check the internal temp, it should be 165 degrees for well done, if you like your pork a little pink check remove them sooner, but let the chicken cook fully until it reads 165.
When you remove the meat from the grill, let it rest for about 10 minutes so all the juices return throughout the meat. The temperature of cooked meats will continue to rise up to 10 degrees as it sits.
Serve with your favorite sides and enjoy!

After an unpleasant experience with another area Electrician, I called Terry's. They were courteous and responsive and fixed the issues with my GFI outlet in about 15 minutes and charged a reasonable amount. I will use them for any electrical need that I have.

My appointment was changed twice in one day then cancelled for the next morning. That was changed after I was told someone would be here within an hour. When the technician finally did come in the afternoon almost an hour after the time they gave me he wanted to charge me the $69 fee for the visit and the cost of replacing one GFI outlet of $193. plus tax of course which would have made it almost $300 for one GFI outlet. That seems a bit excessive to me based on all my dealings with Electricians in New Jersey. The other note is that their office is about 1 mile from my home. UPDATE: ACE called this morning to let me know they would wave the dispatch fee. I guess complaining is a good thing. UPDATE: The outlet was easily replace and upon inspection it was verified that it was the only problem. Cost $90

I was thrilled to be invited back into the Chocolate Kitchen to watch as they made some of their amazing chocolate creations. Its plain to see their employees love chocolate and love what they do. This of course translates into their products. I got to try some of their chocolate creations, including chocolate covered bacon, chocolate popcorn, chocolate strawberries, chocolate pretzels, chocolate graham crackers, chocolate oreo's and chocolate covered potato chips and Jami you were right the milk chocolate chips were my favorite! I am looking forward to going back soon to try out some of the Gelato they have at the store. If you love chocolate you want to make sure to put this on your to do list, plus you get to enjoy beautiful downtown Winter Park while your're there!

I was fortunate to find Barnie's coffee after moving from the Philadelphia area, and its been the only coffee I drink since we moved. I use their espresso beans, as well as their house blend decaf, but my favorites are their MIcro Roasts. Whenever I'm in Winter Park I make it a point to stop in and see what new coffees they have available. And I do use their very easy online ordering.
