If I ever make it New York city then this is on my list of places to eat. Eleven Madison Park. The customer service there sounds like a magic carpet meets you at the door. My Bucket list just got one item longer.
Even as chefs have become the undisputed stars of restaurants, Eleven Madison Park's every-last-detail style of service is a reminder that the FOH staff can play an even larger role in creating a memorable night.

What do you get when you give unselfishly? A heart that grows three times in size they say. Warning. Tears of happiness my ensue if you watch this video
 
Unsung hero

I found interesting to look at this 3'05'' video, while taking into account that this a Thai advert for Thai customers:  it does then convey a sense of a narrative  (about values) the Thai culture is based upon.

Whether the Thai society does truly embody this narrative, or not, is a different conversation entirely, of course… The American narrative around freedom may be seriously challenged when NSA surveillance is considered, or when political influence can be freely monetized. Similarly, the Burmese buddhist narrative may be challenged when Muslims are massacred without second thought…
The Thai narrative may be questioned too; but it's interesting to at least see what Thais might perceive as what one 'should' aspire to,  what Thais might perceive as inspirational… Buddhism's influence is rather clear: generosity, loving kindness, sympathetic joy, perseverance, compassion, wisdom… many paramis appear.

Here you are for Friday night a U.K. shout out to the music of my hometown of Seattle. I hope you're old enough to recognize both tracks. Oh and I am in love with these young men. Don't tell my husband.

Oh please Oh please Oh please! Let this work in the long run, as Habitat for Humanity has been shown to work in the private sector. Let this program be an example for other states!
 
Libertarians would have a cow!

According to their doctrine, one must be self-sufficient to live in their society. Yet, under their rules they would likely opt for the most expensive, less-humane solution. Another fly in the Libertarian agenda?

"[...] the annual cost of E.R. visits and jail says for homeless people was about $16,670 per person, compared to $11,000 to provide each homeless person with an apartment and a social worker [...]"

Its ADHD and Autism awareness month. This TED talk explains why the D in ADHD doesnt stand for disorder, it stands for difference. A difference that should be embraced, not drugged
 
"We're all given a little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it."

Society conforming to us, and not all the way around :)
#adhd , a difference in  #cognition , not a disorder.

If true then wonderful!
 
Leaving without comment. It could work even better if more states adopted the medicaid provision.

Little by little, day by day, I grow as a person.

Story
Tagline
The Universe is a kind and generous place, expect good things.
Introduction

Kathy is very fond of wine, ethnic foods, her children, her husband and  family dogs (not necessarily in that order).  Wheat used to be on her list of favorite things since it tastes so damn good and just happens to be in everything, but she has given it up on her Doctors orders. She also has a dry sarcastic sense of humor, wears red lipstick whenever possible and quite possibly is allergic to her bangs.  

Bragging rights
Kathy has survived the Snowpocalypse of 2009, Snowmageddon of 2010, Sharknado of 2013, and the Polarvortex of 2014
