#reverb10: Make (Chicken Soup for the Soul edition)

Days six of the #reverb10: Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?
A few weeks ago I discovered a local restaurant that makes a DYNOMITE lemon chicken soup, Greek style I believe. 
I killed myself to find a comparable recipe but found one online that I think approximates it here
My favorite part? It is ridiculously easy. And fun to mess with!
I've made several batches now and now are quite the same.
I experiment each time- in part to see if I can replicate the original soup (impossible!), but also because I like the variations.
The lesson here? Catching lightning in a bottle is hard, but trying to catch it CAN be just as worth while so why not at least try?
The other thing I made from this is a happy wife. She LOVES the soup concoctions and is a willing guinea pig each time. You never know what you might be doing that will make someone else happy!
What would I like to do if I had the materials? I LOVE to experiment in the kitchen so ANY time as an excuse is fine and with some Christmas vacation coming, there will be food experiments coming!

Slow Death or Rebirth for Myspace?

  Are we really watching the slow inevitable death of Myspace? With the integration with Facebook complete and  the push towards what appears to be a mobile only function , isn't it time to call this one? One report says that Myspace is making $200 million less this year. They are functionally giving up on Myspace Music , which was always their bread and butter. Without the music tie in, why would people BOTHER with Myspace? I'm talking about it because my wife's band has used every medium known to mankind to promote themselves online and Myspace has been nothing but dead weight from the very beginning. Only bands and their most ardent fans go there. The rest are on Facebook.  There is talk of selling Myspace, but who in their right mind would consider it? This will have some interesting implications for bands down the road. Many use Myspace as their de facto website, just pushing their domain name onto the customizable site. Now apparently, Reverbnation , a North Carolin

Being a Parent

While back, I wrote a post on Father's day about being a father and how being a parent is a job. I wistfully look back as I look forward to another school year quickly approaching and the evidence of my "work" is becoming less and less my handiwork. Our youngest has just moved on to middle school. Josh has moved into high school and the oldest has graduated from high school and about "start" her life. We've had a tacit arrangement with the kids. We do NOT want boomerang kids coming back to haunt us. So they have always been told, they are staying with us until they are REALLY ready to go out and that includes the joke that college has become. Sadly, despite the fact that I have spent a good chunk of my career working in higher education, I know that it is a folly to think that sending a child off to college is preparing them for much other than to have a lifetime of loans. Thankfully, Amanda has gotten the message. She has a plan to go to local c
