Stuff for the Pleasures of Life
Time, Inc. Website for Recipes
I don't generally like oatmeal for breakfast. But, I once tried a serving of "Baked Oatmeal," and that was a new and wonderful experience. So, I went searching for a recipe on how to make Baked Oatmeal. I found one on this website maintained by Time, Inc. It is a treasure trove of culinary delights.

This is the ultimate "How To" source for everything you might need to get along in life. There is even a piece on "how to reason with a toddler."
Troy Forsyth, Officially Northern
At the outset of 2012, Troy became the IT Network Manager at Temple University Harrisburg. Prior to that, Troy lived in North Carolina and grew up on "Rebel" culture. For an interesting exposition about adapting from Southern to Northern 'climes on all dimensions, follow his Blog about becoming "Officially Northern." If you are interested in technology problems, there are many side bars on the challenges of providing for the technology needs of a higher education satellite campus; viz. Temple University at Harrisburg. Click on his picture to go to the Blog, "Officially Northern."
Notice how Troy is wearing a gray jacket, blue shirt, but gray & blue tie? It's gonna be a long, interesting, struggle between the blue and gray. I learn something new every time I meet Troy. He is talented in many ways (not just computer stuff), and he has great depth of character. In his personal way, he is a real scholar of life.

Cousin-in-law, Mark Valenza realized his life dream (one of those dreams, anyway) by establishing an outstanding restaurant business. If you are ever in the Princeton New Jersey area, you must try this for a superb dining experience!
In 1999, Chef Valenza attended the French Culinary Institute (FCI). FCI’s Classic Culinary Arts program, part of the International Culinary Center in New York City where students study with today’s best French Master Chefs.
At FCI, Chef Valenza honed his skills and mastered classic French technique under Chefs Jacques Pepin, Alain Sailhac, Andre Soltner, Jacques Torres, American talent Alice Water, and Sommelier Andrea Robinson, all deserving celebrities for their unmatched culinary ability.
Chef Valenza’s prior ten years of real world experience served him well at FCI where the Master Chef faculty voted him haut de la classe, top of his class. Za Restaurant also has other talented culinary artists to round out the "cross cultural" offerings, see here.
