Lamb: It’s Not Just For Easter

Easter Lamb

Fluffy, pastel-colored Easter bunnies, pretty baskets, brightly colored boiled eggs, Peeps, jelly beans, speckled eggs and giant hollow chocolate bunnies. All of these things would magically appear in hidden nests and beautiful baskets on Easter morning when I was a child. Easter was not complete until we had gone to Kuhn’s in Belle Meade Plaza to look at the little live chicks. More than a few made their way home with us. Funny how they always seemed to disappear, supposedly to our housekeeper’s farm. It was years before we found out they didn’t live on a farm. One year, I remember that Allen Sullivan, Daddy’s best friend and a master prankster, placed several dozen vibrantly colored chicks in our kitchen after everyone had gone to…

Like Pearls Before Swine – Deviled Oysters

Like Pearls Before Swine – Deviled Oysters

  As this title implies, it was years before I appreciated the humble oyster. I watched my mother and father swoon over icy plates of raw oysters, adorned with little more than a squeeze of lemon or cocktail sauce.  Daddy made oyster stew for the two of them on many a cold winter night.  A little milk, a little cream, a pint of fresh oysters, salt, pepper and a big pat of butter, topped off with a handful of oyster crackers. Daddy said he grew up eating oysters every which way from Thanksgiving through Christmas because my Great Grandfather, Allison Humphreys had barrels delivered by train to his coal and ice plant in Lebanon, Tennessee. I was fascinated with looking at them and touching them,…

THE GREAT TURKEY ON THANKSGIVING

  Charlie Brown sits and waits for The Great Pumpkin. I wait for The Great Turkey. Thanksgiving is my favorite Holiday.

10 Tips to Throw a Good Business Event

10 Tips to Throw a Good Business Event

  A great way for any business to increase its likeability is by hosting a customer event. But be cautious: Events are live productions and must be done well. Here are ten tips on how to throw a good business event: 1. Select the right venue and the right guests. There are three factors that influence attendance: the content, who’s hosting and attending, and of course, the venue. The first two make sense, but venue is something that is often not given the consideration it should be. If you are selling a high-end product, don’t select an airport Holiday Inn because it is convenient. People will travel to an ‘aspirational,’ trendy or interesting venue and associate it with your brand, but you need to know your…
