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."

However think about if you added some great pictures or
video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent
but with images and video clips, tuis site could undeniably be one of tthe greatest in its niche.
Excellent blog!

The things i have seen in terms of laptop memory is the fact that there are technical
specs such as SDRAM, DDR and so on, that must match up the features of the mother board.
If the personal computer's motherboard is kind of current
while there are no operating system issues, improving the memory literally will take under one hour.
It's on the list of easiest computer upgrade methods one
can consider. Thanks for giving your ideas.

I have seen loads of useful points on your web page about personal computers.
However, I've got the thoughts and opinions that netbooks are still not quite
powerful more than enough to be a good option if you frequently do jobs that require loads of power,
like video modifying. But for web surfing, microsoft word
processing, and most other frequent computer functions they
are all right, provided you do not mind the tiny screen size.
Thank you sharing your notions.
