Don’t Hide the Pickle!

I’ve decided that pickles are going to be the next big thing. The next “bacon” if you will. Why not? Bacon’s had a very nice run and still tastes yummy, but why not pickles now? Pickles are more complex in flavor and take a more mature palette than bacon. Also, they’re a little friendlier...

After spending two million dollars in tax payer money, the government (The USDA specifically) has gotten rid of the pyramid and created a pie chart (actually a dinner plate of some sort).

The Starving Artist’s Diet Cereal – Magically Ficticious!

I really could have used an Easy Button. Somewhere in the process of writing The Starving Artist’s Diet I decided that I should make a collector’s cereal box as a gift and marketing tool for the book. After listening to a speech by Seth Godin, I was motivated to create the cereal box as...
