NO MORE NAGGING!

 “Nag, nag, nag, that’s all she does.” This statement is a resounding quote made distinctly by men about women. The verb is even definitively used as a noun to describe a complaining woman. When I see couples in my office, the woman typically comes in with a list of valid ways that the man is not showing up in the relationship. When I ask the man what he would like to change in the relationship, a common response is “I would be happy if she would just stop nagging.” Why do women nag? The answer…See More

The Sarasota Film Festival is Set in Motion

The first round of announcements have been made about the Sarasota Film Festival (SFF), and, no, the rumors that John Hamm will be in attendance were not confirmed. However, the implication at the SFF kick-off party was that more big announcements are yet to be made, contingent on confirmation from the stars. Hope is not lost; handsome Hamm could still make the list! But no matter who comes to town, the SFF, scheduled for April 13-22, is sure to be a good time!Featuring over 230 films from 30…See More

While you are at the Aprons school, I wonder if you could find out what has happened to cheese. I used to be able to make a smooth cheese sauce or cheese soup merely by melting cheese in a stock or milk base. Lately, however, the cheese only partially melts, but leaves a residue of small, curdy lumps in the bottom of the sauce or soup. I thought maybe I had simply lost my technique, but I have asked others who say they have noticed the same thing with cheese lately. Has the cheese industry changed the way that cheese is made? How can we get a smooth cheese sauce with this uncooperative cheese?

Sarasota Film Festival Updates, Additions and Panel Discussions.

Posted on April 12, 2011 at 8:17am 0 Comments

I remember the early years of the film festival when seats were empty and directors solicited people to fill the theatre for their film. But times have changed.  These days, virtually every theatre is filled to capacity. The full theatres mean good news for more than just the filmmakers. Popular demand is resulting in additional screenings being added for some of the sold-out films. So if there is a “sold out” film you’d like to see or a film just doesn’t meet your schedule, check again.…
