After nearly three years visiting almost every place that serves Sunday breakfast in Nashville, I think I found the best one – the one that I could visit over and over again. Of course, I need to go there again to make sure that I didn’t imagine it, get lucky or that it doesn’t catch […] Read More

I receive a lot of email from people asking me questions. I’m happy to reply as it allows for intimate idea-sharing as well as a natural back-and-forth that I enjoy.

On a recent visit to Charleston, W.Va., I had enough time to get a nice run in while the sun was still high in the sky. There’s no better way to explore a new city than by running through its downtown and along its riverbanks.   I left the hotel at the same time as […] Read More

Apparently, it made him too hyper when he witnessed the physical challenges that occurred when contestants couldn’t answer the mind boggling trivia questions that Marc Summers threw out there.

This week should be a slow week in most places. Because Christmas is on a Thursday, and lots of people will get the day after that off, expect to see people using vacation days to get a nice week off. I’ll be in Texas for eight days if you need me. Because it will be a […] Read More
