The latest on Thomas Keller

An interesting article in the online version of this week's NYMetro about Thomas Keller, the fire and delayed opening of his restaurant Per Se in New York, and where he's going with his career.

"So people keep telling me, 'Thomas, you look so great today.' I just think, I wish you could see inside me. It's just this churning. I look out the window, at where they're digging up the ground on Columbus Circle . . . " He looks out his massive windows at a maze of furrows at the corner of Central Park, where workmen are installing new water mains. "It's like that," Keller adds. "My insides keep getting dug up."

Read more about why the man who created the French Laundry doesn't really want to create anymore, he just wants to figure out if its possible to run two world-class restaurants at the same time on different coasts. "That's it," he says. "No more."

Greetings, I do think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.

Whenever I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in IE, it's got some overlapping issues.

I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up! Apart from that, wonderful site!

Besides that, survey the possible predators that live near your house and don't forget to ask your neighborhood about this predator they had seen around their house.
Anyway, it will always be less costly creating your
very own chicken coop than buying industrial quality ones.
This will make certain the home won't collapse and deter predators.

You want to seek out the companies that have the best reputation and this will help to keep your
level of satisfaction high. They can be difficult to maneuver and are
limited to major roads that are free of low hanging
trees and low clearance bridges. Some miss the belt
and fall on the floor, where they are left to die.

Magia fructelor acai se poate simti in intensificarea metabolismului si
cresterea semnificativa a energiei si staminei.

Cea mai importanta abilitate a fructelor acai o reprezinta imbunatatirea metabolismului pentru cresterea energiei si a nivelului staminei, prevesnirea cumularilor
de grasimi iin corp, imbunatatirea vietii sexuale, iar lista poate continua.De fapt,
starea generala dde sanatate a unei persoane depinde de propriul sistem digestiv.
Cu cat este mai bun sistemul digestiv, cu atat sunt maii
rare aparitiile bolilor. Pana acum, diferite studii stiintifice au
esuat in a detecta orice impact negativ ale fructelor acai asupra corpului
uman. Cu toate acestea, ar fi prudent ca oamenii sa evite
consumul excesiv all fructelor acai pentru ca dozele prea mari de suplimente pee
baza de aacai poate creste stamiina prea mulkt si poat rezulta in palpitatii sau dificultati ale somnului.
