...There is a new restaurant in L.A. called "ChocoChicken" that serves bittersweet cocoa coated chicken; you can even dip the chicken in chocolate ketchup! Oh, and one of their side dishes is ChocMashed potatoes! Apparently they are all the rage and already planning to expand operations due to their popularity.

Who would have thunk of that idea?

Oh, now I think I've heard it all.......I thought a cordial nod and/or handshake was as familiar as you should become with business associates, but apparently, if you're in the global market, you need to know "etiquette of kissing standards". I guess numerous customs exist out there and the ordinary greeting may need some refinement.

Those popular marshmellow candies that are made from marshmellows (of course), sugar gelatin, and carnauba wax (what's that!?!) and shaped into chics, bunnies, and ducks, have made their Spring appearance and now we bid them farewell! Apparently they were introduced into the US market in 1952 originating in Russia. Way back then, the candies were made by hand and originally only in the shape of chickens (hence the "Peep"). Now, they are not only popular at Easter time, but many other Holidays as well.....it's peepmania. Oh, and now there are different flavors too!

Well, certainly for NCAA Basketball.......but also a packed schedule for March in general! Blossoms, wildflowers popping up all over the place, the time change, Saint Patrick's Day, Spring Break, the first day of Spring March 21st, Palm Sunday/Easter Sunday, cycling events, motocycle runs, inline competitions, golf tournaments, Doctor's Day, Albert Einstein's Birthday and even Dr. Seuss's! And the list goes on.........


Whoa....I'm planning to go snow skiing at Sierra Summit the last weekend of March....what a crazy contrast!

On two memorable occasions when our children were young, my husband was offering his fatherly advice about "lives lessons" with the intent to keep our precious boys out of harms way. Our oldest son was traveling with my husband in his work truck and was satisfying his innocent childhood curiosities by asking a multitude of questions about the gadgetry on the vehicle's dashboard. One item that was particularly fascinating to our son was the cigarette lighter.

I recently attended the American College of Healthcare Executives Congress...one of the courses I attended was a sober reminder of the importance of standardization, following procedures and protocols, and scripting.


What was most interesting were the comments about the most mundane and routine procedures being the most vunerable because we're all possibly too comfortable and relaxed....we can do the procedure "in our sleep" so to speak.
