You Can Dance If You Want To

You can leave your bro' behind.  In this completely unscripted video Jack begins dancing to one of Men Without Hats best new songs, Head Above Water . Not to be shown up, Elle (bronchitis and all) sets her ice cream cone down and shows Jack how it's done.   I guess those dance lessons are paying off!

Pizza Hut Testing New Concept in Nebraska

I recently read that Pizza Hut was going to test a new type of restaurant in York, Nebraska and Pawtucket, Rhode Island.  I happened to be in York on the day this new Pizza Hut opened so I checked it out for lunch.  The new concept is that they sell pizza by the slice at a "slice bar", sauté pastas, and make salads all in front of you.  You run through the line kind of like at a Subway so you can see them making your food.  If it's a success in these test markets, the concept could go national.

 I ate one of the "Big 'N Delicious slices of pizza.  The precooked pie was sitting out, and once you select what kind you want, they heat it up in the oven and bring it out to your table.  It was quick and the slice was large and only cost three dollars.  It was a decent slice of pizza.  My one disappoint with this was that I couldn't choose exactly what toppings I wanted on the slice.  I had to select from about five pre-decided options.

College Education has a Positive ROI (in aggregate) at only 150 schools

A recent study from the 2013 Global Conference indicates there are only 150 schools that offer students a positive ROI. The new is good for Georgia Tech students. Tech is one of only two public universities in the top 20 from a ROI perspective.  May want to think twice about that philosophy degree from Sonoma State!

Cupcake Frenzy Fading...

Our best local cupcake shops are closing their doors.    They were good cakes but obviously not good enough.  The sad thing is the cakes were really good so this should serve as a warning to future cupcake entrepreneurs.
