…of pizza, ‘extreme heat’, & beer….

….”Important questions: Should you ever use a knife and fork to eat pizza?”…”Extreme heat warnings issued in Europe as temperatures soar past 40C”…

SOMETHING ABOUT….“is a pizza place where you feel obligated to use utensils even one worth going to?”….And so goes the muse: “But as you start to reach in for that wonderful, first glorious slice of sauce and cheesy goodness, the unthinkable happens: the other person begins to grab the utensils sitting on the table. “Surely this is not about to happen,” you say to yourself, just before the crime is committed. Oh, but it did. Your date is using a fork and knife to eat their pizza – and it becomes immediately obvious that this just isn’t going to work out.”

SOMETHING ABOUT….“temperatures in the 40’sC in southern France, Spain & the Balkans, being the highest since 2003.”



Cheers to a Fine Festive Friday & sensational long weekend that sings—‘sunshine’ in all that shall be!

Pour on!





…of wildfires, entrepreneurs, & pizza…


…”Wildfires will always happen, but Canadians forgetting safety lessons they teach us”…”Here’s how you can start living the millennial dream of being your own boss”…”Slice of heaven: could this be the best pizza in the world?”…

SOMETHING ABOUT…“what we think is (an) extreme (fire event) today will be the new normal in 20 or 30 years.”

Caution. Knowledge. Due care and attention, folks!

SOMETHING ABOUT…”ditching the day job, and striking out on your own venture.”

“Being happy to take a pay cut for better work-life balance.”

Ultimately 66% of millennials surveyed want to work for themselves, apparently.

“Start with a side-hustle. Build a financial cushion. Seek out spousal/entrepreneurial support & mentoring.”

SOMETHING ABOUT…”a pizzeria in a village near Naples, where chef Franco Pepe tops his handmade dough with local artisanal ingredients.”

Pepe in Grani, Caiazzo, Campania.

The Pinsa conciata del ’500, topped with conciato romano cheese, fig preserve from the Cilento, basil, and lardo from Nero Casertano pigs; and Il Sole nel Piatto (sunshine on a plate) with buffalo mozzarella, tiny Piennolo del Vesuvio tomatoes, Cetara anchovies, basil, extra virgin olive oil and Caiazzo olives.”

Cheers to a wonderful Wednesday that sings—delectable!!!


Delightful. Highly pleasing. Enjoyable.
