If God created everything, and he doesn't mistakes, then there certainly wouldn't be anything "diabolically perverted in creation."

Kelly Blazek, the Cleveland communications pro who blasted eager young professionals for asking for her help, became an international pariah after her nasty emails saw the light of day. It's a good reminder to good networkers why we do what we do.

For some reason, my WordPress blog is deleting scheduled blog posts. I can't figure out what's causing it, but it's not touching posts that I just publish whenever. Here's the new URL.

If you, or someone you know (including restaurants), makes a great pork tenderloin, they need to enter this. This could be for the bragging rights for the entire state of Indiana.

We know pork tenderloins here. It's even our official state sandwich.

I had a chance to visit the Mayberry Cafe in Danville, Indiana in December. Danville itself is a great little town, and everything you would want to find in a small Hoosier city. The festival should be a good time, even if it IS on Pole Day and Bump Day at the Indianapolis 500.

Outstanding pastries; I only wish their coffee didn't come from a Nescafe machine. Still, it's better than some coffee shops that over roast their beans.
