Salad’s Up?

I’m a Sous chef for a small catering business. We can go weeks with little to do, then be hit with six events on the same night. The frequent lulls cause many of our event staff London to seek other employment – so when crunch time comes – we may spend an evening bumping into newbies hired just days before.

On one such evening, I was creating a salad when a new server arrived and politely asked to help. I assumed a certain skill level, gave her a few instructions then walked away to plate the appetizers. Halfway through I looked over to check the new hire. What was supposed to be 120 individual salads was overflowing from a single stainless-steel bowl. I have no idea what she read from my face, but something “clicked” and she turned the entire bowl over her head. Instant friends!

What is an actor’s day like

Being an actor may sound glamorous, but it’s a job. And for all but a few of the most A-list Hollywood actors, it’s a job that doesn’t pay a lot and is a lot of work. But it can be very rewarding, because each day can be different.

No matter where your acting job is: on a set or on location, your day is likely to start off with a visit to the wedding makeup artist Manchester, who will make you look glamorous — or hideous — depending on the part. You might also have to visit with a costume person. After that, the day will be filled with shooting scenes, with as many takes as it takes to get it right. You might get a few breaks when the crew is shooting scenes that don’t involve you. Days can be long and might go 12 hours or more.

Put Your Fandom On Your Ride

After purchasing my first car, I realized that it was rather plain-looking. Sure, it was my favorite color and design, but it was lacking a certain…pizzazz, oomph, that sort of thing. As I mulled over ideas to brighten up my ride to make it more “me,” I stumbled across a site dedicated to glass transfers. For the uninformed, you give them any sort of image or use a slew of the ones they already have in their index, and they will provide you with a decal of that image that you can securely stick to your windows. Since I’m a big fan of shows like Transformers, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and G.I. Joe, I decided to purchase a bunch of images related to those properties. I even grabbed a Hasbro logo for my gas cap, since that company handles all three of those shows and toy lines.

Never Tasted Better

There is a stream that runs behind my house. It is filled with small fish, stones, and tiny insects that float across the top. On warm days, I would sit by the stream and soak my bare feet in the clear and cool water. The refreshing feeling filled my body up with glee.

One day, I sat by the stream on an extremely hot afternoon. The sun rays beamed down on my head and clothes with a force that was as hot as an oven. I wiped beads of sweat from my forehead and tried to breathe in fresh air. After a while of fighting the heat, the cool stream before me began to look very inviting. I reached down to cup a small amount of the fresh water in my hand. Intending to drink the coolness, I brought my hand to my mouth. Suddenly, I heard the voice of my mother.

I dropped my hand and turned to see my mother running towards me with a stern look. She sat down beside me and explained that the stream water could not be safe to drink. I could get sick. Instead, she constructed a water filtration media before me with materials like rocks, sand, and a special treatment soil. Then, she filtered the stream water through the media before handing a small amount out for me to drink. At that moment, water never tasted better!

Business By the Blog

The economy had hit us hard. Not only had a major retail competitor opened their doors down the street but we had lost many local sales as our customers too were feeling the economy crunch. What was weird is that a friend had a basket company that was strictly done on line, and her sales were soaring. She told me how she kept her sales coming in. At first I couldn’t believe it or understand what the SEO stuff was all about.

It was a cheap seo site that made the difference in where we are today. No joke, I focused in our some of our specialty items and sales and advertising toally increased. Our company didn’t just maintain, it grew.

The way business is done has changed. And it is takes risk and staying up on technology to make sure one’s business stays alive. I can’t believe where we are today. Our sales are up, our focus has changed and the way we do business and market is done much by people I don’t even know. It’s awesome. Business has never been better.
