Don't ask me what I'm doin' 'cause I don't know

A few weeks ago I attended the Symposium for Professional food Writers at the Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia. To say that it was an eye opening, mind blowing experience would be an understatement. My head is still spinning. The knowledge shared, ideas hatched, and tips given were extraordinary. I can’t think of any single period of time when I’ve had as much stimulating conversation or been exposed to as many interesting people as that week. I was exhilarated. It was absolutely inspiring. The symposium brought to light so many things that I want to put in motion, improve, and try. Yet, I’ve felt overwhelmed to the point of paralysis since I’ve returned. The most I’ve been able to muster is a “to do list.” And even that isn’t complete.

Anyway, here are some questions to start the week...

Does the Lions 4-0 start mean the word will end on 11-11-11?

When will our government start policing industrial farming so we can actually eat fresh, healthy food?

Who are the Dead Sox going to get that’s better than Francona? No, seriousy? Bobby Valentine? 

Why am I seeing so many Pumpkin (Punkin, Pumkin, etc) Ales and so few Oktoberfest beers?

Will anyone actually care if there are no NBA games before Christmas Day (or after for that matter)?
